The Left’s Descent into Fascism

The Left’s Descent into Fascism, by Shari Goodman.

Long before the creation of ghettos and concentration camps, the demonization of Jews began in 1933 when Germany elected Adolf Hitler as Chancellor. … The dehumanization of Jews was a necessary requirement for Hitler and his fellow Nazis and they did so with a campaign of demonization, ridicule, and blame.  …

The persecution of European Jewry was gradual. At first Jews were no longer welcome at schools and universities. Later, they were no longer able to own their businesses and homes. With time, public transportation was unavailable to them, public restrooms were forbidden, hospitals excluded them and eventually they were no longer able to use public streets or go outdoors. They were complete outcasts in a land they called home. By the time the crematoriums were running, Jews were no longer viewed as humans, but as vermin to be stamped out for the good of humanity.

Has the left now started down this path with conservatives in the USA? Arguably so.

Today, the election of Donald Trump to the Presidency has provoked the fascist Left to reject the election results. Conservatives and Trump supporters are reluctant to identify themselves and conceal their support for fear of a backlash from the Leftist elites.

From the Berkeley riots to Black Lives Matters marches it is not safe to be a conservative Trump supporter on American streets and college campuses. …

Unbelievably, key political leaders on the left egg on their fellow leftists and advocate the use of violence against Conservatives.   Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch [has fanned the flames here]. … Recently, former Vice Presidential candidate Tim Kaine stated, “…what we’ve got to do is fight in congress, fight in the courts, fight in the streets, fight online, fight at the ballot box, and now there is a momentum to be able to do this.”

Their followers are listening and taking heed. It was only a few days ago that talk show host Michael Savage, a huge Trump supporter, was violently assaulted outside a Marin County restaurant by a man who clearly did not like his politics. Recently, a dispatcher at the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse was fired for defending Trump’s Executive Order, and UCLA is offering a seminar by a clinical psychologist to diagnose President’s Trump’s mental capacity. Such occurrences as these are matter of fact in fascist Third World dictatorships. They should not be routine in the land of the free. Yet, with each passing year, it is becoming much more difficult to be free if one is a Conservative.

The mainstream establishment media, which is no longer an unbiased source of information, has become the mouthpiece for the Democratic Left.  They give voice, legitimacy, and cover  while Conservatives are smeared as bigots, homophobes, racists, and fascists. …

Thus, it is Conservatives who are blamed and smeared for ruining the environment, for Wall Street greed, for maintaining Judeo/Christian biblical values, and for seeking to preserve our culture, language, and sovereignty. Conservative speakers are no longer welcome on college campuses much as Jews were no longer welcome at German universities decades ago. Conservatives have become caricatures and are subjected to ridicule on American television and in newspapers.  The marketplace of ideas is verbotten among many of the institutions that are now controlled by the Left.  Instead of a free marketplace of ideas, we have a fascist political thought police that takes Conservatives to task for crossing the acceptable political and social gibberish designed by the Left. …

In today’s America, Conservatives are branded, targeted, ridiculed and punished for their beliefs much as the Jews were targeted and persecuted in pre-Holocaust Europe. … In today’s America, Conservatives are the new Jews to be ridiculed, shamed and ostracized.

People forget because the left used its control of universities and the media to rewrite  history, but the Nazis were leftists in nearly every way. The Nazis were deeply socialist, favoring the state over the individual. They were anti-Christian, nature-worshiping environmental nuts who set up the world’s first national parks. They were also ex-Communists in many cases.

Many lefties in Britain would not fight the Nazis during the battle of Britain  because the Nazis were of the left — until the Nazis attacked Russia, a country whose socialism the Western left preferred. So in 1941 they started labeling the Nazis “right wing” instead of “left wing”.
