Three persistent anti-Trump fallacies and why they’re dangerous.

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.

LR Podcast, S3E22: The Left desperately want you to believe Meloni is a fascist.

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.

Reductio ad absurdum, Trump as a Nazi.

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?

LR Podcast, S3E21: Reductio ad Hitlerum

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.

So, you (still) want to compare Trump to Hitler?

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.

LR Podcast, S3E18: Supreme Leader Joe’s Speech

Not one word of his speech talks about the real problems we face in America, rising inflation, skyrocketing crime rates, or the cost of energy.  Besides demonizing Trump and his supporters, the purpose of his speech seems to be to distract us from these real problems.

LR Podcast, S3E16: Fear: The Coin of the Left’s Realm

 Fear is the coin of the realm for the Left. They employ tactics of fear and even terror to control others.  They use deception to exaggerate the nature of the danger, then they exaggerate or even falsify the effectiveness of their solutions.  They in turn fear that if they are not in control, someone else will be, or even worse...no one else, and that scares them the most.

Independence Day Message, 2022

We are a divided nation, but our Constitution is strong. It has allowed us to retain our God-given rights. It has not weakened but strengthened our democracy by returning issues that once were out of reach of the democratic process back into the domain of the people, subject to their will. Even the acute mismanagement we've faced of late can be resolved and overcome with the strength, perseverance, and commitment to first principles.

LR Podcast S3E7: Economic Fascism is Still Fascism

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.
