We should not surrender our values, let them surrender their values of victimhood, collectivism, and cultural Marxism, and reunite with us under a common flag, the American flag.
An electorate suffering from TDS, blind to their own prejudices is liable to vote away our freedom just to spite one man they have convinced themselves is an enemy of democracy and vote in the exact sort of fascism they claim to be against.
Orwell got a lot of things right, like the surveillance state and doublethink. How close was his vision of the geopolitical landscape in 1984 to real life?
You're meant to fear black shirts kicking down doors and beating people who go against the regime, but what the Left really seems to fear is that she'll be successful in delaying or halting their Great Reset plans. More than jackbooted thugs, the Left fears Meloni's ability to stifle their agenda to establish a global, collectivist oligarchy.
After four years, Americans were as free as they were before he became president, (except for COVID restrictions.) There were no boxcars full of minorities being hauled off to concentration camps. In fact, no forced labor camps. There were no pogroms carried out against the Jews or anybody. That begs the question: If Trump were truly a Nazi, why didn't he ever do any of this? Was he too busy cutting taxes and regulations?
If Trump is a fascist, especially a Nazi, he's certainly a very poor one. If his followers are fascists, they sure cling to a lot of non-fascists ideals. One of the defining traits of Nazis was their violent antisemitism. Trump ended the Iran nuclear agreement, something that the Israelis celebrated, and their Prime Minister at the time called for in front of the UN. This paved the way for one of Trump's in-laws, one of his Jewish in-laws to broker a peace deal between Israel and several neighboring Arab states. He then moved the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. These are things that a true Nazi would have a hard time doing, and even a harder time selling to his supporters.
Persistent comparison of Trump's followers to Nazis is not just unfair and unjustified, it can be downright dangerous. How many more Shannon Brandts are there out there, just waiting for a chance rid the world of MAGA Republicans? What, besides the demagoguery of Biden, fuels the hatred of Trump supporters? And notice, that the hate is being directed not just at Trump himself, but those who are outspoken in his support. The Democrats are trying to create an association in the public's mind between support for Donald Trump and hatred for democracy.
Atlas Shrugged, 1957, by Ayn Rand One of the themes of Atlas Shrugged, and of the Objectivist philosophy of Ayn Rand is the idea of all rights are individual rights. Growing up in the Soviet Union, she witnessed first-hand the evils of collectivism, the negation of the self. She believed in the rights of minorities, … Continue reading Analysis of John Galt’s speech: Individuality
Many countries have borrowed from it, none have improved upon it. Strong as it is, it's only as strong as the Supreme Court Justices charged with following and interpreting it, and only as strong as the Citizens of the US are willing to allow it to be. Hopefully the next 235 years will see it remain as strong, if not stronger, as it is now.
Happy Constitution Day! The U.S. Constitution: Not just a good idea, it's the law!
Charles has been outspoken in recent years on Leftist causes such as climate change and has attended the WEF summit in Davos, Switzerland. He's going to have to put those days behind him and rule from the center. When in doubt, he should ask himself-- "What would mother do?"
