GOP Rep. thinks Pilgrims came to America to escape socialism - 100 years before socialism first became an idea

What a nitwit. They came to escape religious prosecution. The first ideas of a 'socialist society' came 100 years later. Hw was talking about Thanksgiving which commeorates how the Indians helped the settlers survive harsh conditions by sharing their food with them. That's socialism we can believe in.

AKIN: It might be helpful to think back and say, there’s more to Thanksgiving than the Pilgrims. They were a group of people who were willing to change the system, to think of different ideas. They came here and separated civil and church governments. They came here and created the model of a written constitution, the idea that the government should be the servant of the people. They came here with the idea that after trying socialism that it wasn’t going to work. They realized that it was unbiblical, that it was a form of theft, so they pitched socialism out. They learned that in the early 1620’s.

The first 'socialist' political party was formed about 200 years later. Their stupidity is endless.
