Why the intolerance and bigotry from the Left today remind me terrifyingly of the 1930s

Most of us count ourselves lucky to live in a democracy. Ours is one of the world’s great cradles of political freedom, a land where we are free to write, think and vote exactly as we wish.

What would it be like, though, to live in a world where all that was taken away? What would it be like to live in a country where opposing views were shouted down and politicians were afraid to speak in public?

How would it feel to live in a land where demagogues whipped up lynch mobs with talk of murder and insurrection, where newspapers were destroyed and posters defaced, where academics and teachers preached intolerance and bigotry?

    Whom is WE?
    Do you think that even for one Moment in time—-
    That you are preaching a MESSAGE ?

    Today, several Antifa members told me I am a “known white supremacist.” Their rational? I handed out pacifiers to trannies at the Jordan Peterson event.

      get a clip board with a petition on it, and have a friend follow you around at these events asking them to sign to ban you from the events. Afterwards, once they have all put their names and addresses on the clipboard and your friend has left, thank them for giving the “officer” their information and let them know that their problems have only just started.

        That is brilliant.

    ..most anywhere else, I’d be dead long ago…I’ll stay right here, on the edge of the forest…

      Yup, I never get too far from the treeline either.

        dig in and set up some claymores to the front of your position

        make sure your flanks are covered too

    Heck, everybody understands that liberals and their brownshirts are in the socialist stage of Communism.
    Do I also need to remind you that NAZI is an acronym of the real name of the group:
    National Socialist German Workers’ Party =
    Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei
    The NAZIs were self avowed socialists although Hitler tried to shed that part of the image later.

  • Shebel

    We are the New Nazis.
    That is so special.
    It is so stupid.
    For Me—
    Muslims are the new Nazis.

    what democracy. where is it?

  • Hard Little Machine

    Trump is not literally Hitler but neither are these people. We’ve seen them before from the left and they are unremarkable as always

  • Liberal Progressive

    Thank goodness we have the police to protect us from undesirable right wing opinions.

    Justin will make sure that such offensive opinions will need the approval of our government or be banned so as not to upset people.

    It’s time for a musical interlude and a favourite song of the left.
