State representative Skyler Wheeler (R-Orange City) upset some leftists on the History Channel’s Facebook page today. The History Channel posted the following message on its Facebook page:

Rep. Wheeler, a known critic of Marxism, commented on the post. Wheeler said “Lol, the ole ‘that wasn’t real Marxism,’ talking point. You all need to get these leftists out of the History Channel before it falls apart.”

Rep. Wheeler added that if he desired that sort of history lesson being peddled by the History Channel, he’d pay a “leftist” university.

Enter triggered leftist in 3…2…1:

The full thread is pretty entertaining. And if we’re lucky, it will continue for a while longer.

Rep. Wheeler responded with this comment:

“It’s like, I don’t even have to try anymore. I speak the truth and people lose it. The people trying to convince everyone that we basically need to try Marxism to a T, disown Lenin, Stalin, Chairman Mao, North Korea and especially Venezuela, yet it is clear that these places were going for true and full implementation of what Marx envisioned. Don’t let them do this. Marxism, communism, socialism — they don’t work. Never have and never will.”
