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.
The economic component of fascism was the ends to which the violence, and terror were but a means. The point of the marches, pogroms, and demagoguery was to establish an economic system totally under the heal of the ruling party, the state.
This Memorial Day, we honor those who gave all. They all gave their lives for their country, and we enjoy what freedom we have because of them.
“He is not here; for He is risen …” Matthew 28:6
George Washington knew the power of the Constitution Lincoln understood the importance of our Constitution in protecting our liberties.
They don't know if “Build Back Better” is better, but they do know that you can't spend trillions of dollars and not cause inflation. They know that they were lied to about Russian collusion, Kenosha, and Jussie Smollett being the victim of a hate crime. What else have they been lied to about? they wonder.
The public who support these policies get to feel good about themselves too, but only for a little while, until the bill comes due. By the time they're paying $5 for a loaf of bread, and $6 for a gallon of gas, it's too late.
Today, we can see the Left is still using the same playbook, as their motivations and political goals remain the same. They retain all of the moral shortcomings that Rand wrote about over fifty years ago, including when in 1964 she wrote a chapter in her nonfiction book, The Virtue of Selfishness, which is a collection of essays written by her and Nathaniel Branden that lay out the principles that make up her Objectivist philosophy.
Will they, should the leftist have their way, and establish some sort of socialist or neo-fascist state be reduced to fighting for their homeland, with not much cause to spill a drop of blood for whatever collectivist ideology takes the place of individual freedom? What would be the rallying cry used to motivate persons to pick up arms in such a place? “FOR EQUITY!”? “FOR THE COLLECTIVE GOOD!”? or “DEATH TO THE INDIVIDUALISTS!”?
