Progressives as Fascists
Never mind that Chris Matthews himself referred to the "Bush Regime," and never mind that progressives used to sport bumper stickers in favor of regime change at home. It's now sedition -- a felony.
I've heard NPR ask whether Sarah Palin isn't advocating violence because after the health care bills passed she told supporters to "reload." Chris Matthews has said the Republicans are like the Khmer Rouge, engaging in a "re-education" campaign. Frank Rich in New York Times lambasted the entire opposition to the health care bills as "racist," and followed with a second editorial praising Obama's messiah-like qualities.
What's going on here? This is worse than Bush's "If you aren't with us, you're against us," because it's seriously being promoted by the mainstream media that mere disagreement is possibly felonious.
America's Progressives: moving towards fascism at an alarming rate.
NV: Are you suggesting that by pointing out the implications of leftist narratives I am following their low path? I disagree -- I'm not crying "fascist" as an epithet -- I'm trying to warn about a real threat. There won't be brown shirts marching and saluting, that's not the America style -- but those things are simply trappings of Europe's style of fascism, not the essence of the system. We are institutionalizing the essence, and I'm trying to sound an admittedly feeble alarm.
Anonymous: it is certainly news to anyone who diligently follows NYT and other MSM, and nothing else.
Thanks to all of you for your comments.
