Nazi Germany, Soviet Union, ChiComs, Chavez’s Venezuala, Cuba, Vietnam, to name a few, all had something in common; punishing dissent.
History is filled with regimes that made dissent a crime. Prisons, concentration camps, gulags, and even psychiatric facilities were filled with people that simply disagreed with the ruling regime. In fact, it still goes on today. The reasoning is rather simple. When the regime is based on socialism, it fails-and to cover up that failure, opponents must be blamed, and punished. Then, when the opponents are jailed (or killed outright), the failure continues, and other people are then blamed for the ongoing failure. After all, it has to be someone else’s fault! Any effort to point out the failure, let alone do something to change or prevent the failure, is branded as treason, or sedition. In other words, to a liberal, you telling the truth is a crime. Doing your job, and trying to fix the problem amounts to sedition.
If Democrats regain control of the House, rest assured that your Second Amendment rights will be eviscerated as they very nearly did following the mass shooting by the lunatic in Sandy Hook. Dianne Feinstein — the loathsome and brazen crook from California — had her gun ban bill in place, just waiting for a nice, bloody tragedy to exploit.
These are some truly frightening portents.
• Democrats are openly calling for the arrest of Sen. Ted Cruz “for sedition”. Never mind the Constitution explicitly grants the power of the purse to Congress, not the President. Never mind that James Madison himself described that the House could, in fact, shut down any program it wanted to. Never mind all that: the Constitution doesn’t matter to these hard left sixties retreads. They don’t want any political opposition. They want you gone. They want you silent, or in prison, or dead (what do you think Obamacare is really about?).
• MSNBC plainly calls lawful dissent “sedition”, presumably punishable by death.
• Democrat Congressman Steve Cohen (TN) labels conservatives “domestic enemies”, alluding to presidential actions to secure the country from the Tea Party, veterans, and Constitutional conservatives.
• A public MoveOn.org petition calls for the arrests of Republicans in Congress by the Holder DOJ.
These are some dangerous times, my friends.
The first thing that comes to mind is Hillary Clinton and her famous diatribe against George W. Bush.
I’m sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we’re Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration.
Funny thing, this debate and disagreement stuff. It applies to every administration, no matter if the man in the White House is Democrat or Republican. That right is guaranteed us by the United States Constitution, but you can’t tell it by listening to the liberals. The rhetoric and tactics in which they engage should serve as a warning to the rest of us. They have no qualms about attacking someone who disagrees with them, aka Brett Kimberlin. If it doesn’t make you wonder exactly what they are capable of, ie. what they are willing to do to further their agenda, then you might as well stop reading now.
Larry hits it right on the nose. We have to wonder how far they are will to go, and what measures they are will to tale to reach their goals. History is a very uncompromising teacher, and it shows, very clearly, that when people or groups state vile intentions, they most often try to follow through on them. It is up to us, as students of history, to point out these intention, lest people be surprised when they come to fruition.
Make no mistake. The only thing that separates our regressives from the Nazis and Bolsheviks is the speed at which they operate. Our regressives have worked for decades at ruining our moral and economic systems. Rather than a bloody coup de main, they have resorted to a slow process of subversion. They have met success. But even though they have operated for decades, violence will still have to be part of their final seizure of power. then, once their seizure of power is complete, and their system fails, more violence will be necessary to maintain it. Any totalitarian system must suppress it’s population. The regressives will. therefore. follow their fellow travelers.
I know, I don’t pain a pretty picture, but if we shy away, stay silent, and disengage, the bad guys will win, and we will be the first to the wall.
