1.Fascism is a political/economic program that folds big business into the aims and agenda of the government.

“If there are fascists in America these days, they are apt to be found among the tribes of the left. They are Mr. Biden and his people (including the lion’s share of the media),
The evolution of their overprivileged emotions—their sentimentality gone fanatic—has led them, in 2022, to embrace Mussolini’s formula: “All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state.” Or against the party. (People forget, if they ever knew it, that both Hitler and Mussolini began as socialists).

The state and the Democratic Party must speak and act as one, suppressing all dissent.

Brit Hume highlights WSJ piece arguing that Donald Trump and his followers are essentially antifascists

The whole "fascist" dig is pure projection from the Left.

2. “Fascism is therefore inherently opposed to free-speech (that is, any speech critical of the fascists) because it is the first line of defense against the implementation of it's political agenda, and so it becomes the first casualty at their hands. Under fascism free-speech was seen as an evil or immoral tool of liberalism and democracy which serves to manipulate the minds of the masses toward what they felt were somehow immoral or harmful political views and actions which detracted from their superior goals; it is summarily moral from the perspective of a fascist to silence the speech of political detractors.” On Fascism and Free Speech


3. "Elon Musk reveals Democrats lawmakers blasted Twitter for failing to censor MORE content after New York Post Hunter Biden laptop scandal - with lawmakers claiming 'free speech isn't absolute'​

  • Journalist Matt Taibbi Friday began publishing the internal Twitter documents
  • They showed the shocking political influence on content moderation at the site
  • Taibbi conducted his probe with the cooperation of new Twitter chief Elon Musk
  • Emails showed staffers censoring tweets at the behest of the Joe Biden's team
  • His campaign made requests for tweets to be taken down - and Twitter complied"

“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” Abraham Lincoln

4. Anne Applebaum, who observes about Soviet-era suppression: “Actual censors were not always needed. Instead, a form of pervasive peer pressure convinced writers, journalists and everyone else to toe the party line; if they did not, they knew they risked being ejected from their jobs and shunned by their friends.”



5. JONATHAN TURLEY: I want to emphasize that a lot of people on the left that have said if it's not prohibited on the First Amendment, it's not a free speech issue. That's not true. The First Amendment is not the exclusive domain of free speech. What they are doing is shutting down free speech. The left has come on to a winning strategy. …. they've discovered that if they use corporations to control speech, it falls outside the First Amendment. But it's not true that what they're doing is not a free speech attack. It is. They're trying to stop people from speaking on these platforms…. https://www.foxnews.com/media/joe-rogan-spotify-jonathan-turley-left-silence-free-speech




6. "5th Circuit upholds Texas law forbidding social media ‘censorship’ — again

The ruling is a win for Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton in their efforts to combat what they call censorship of conservative viewpoints by social media companies.



bans social media companies from censoring users’ viewpoints is constitutionally allowed, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on Friday, in a blow to Facebook, Twitter and Google.

Both parties have been fascist since the civil war.

Emails, Benghazi, Laptop oh my! The Daily Mail is the Brits version of National Enquirer. Like FOX news and Trump, they target stupid people. That`s a target that`s too big to miss.

I must admit, I have enjoyed looking at Twitter today and yesterday as the whole Musk fiasco has gone down in flames. I haven't been on Twitter much in the last 2-3 years or so. It was kind of nice.

/----/ Libtards' fallback defense when caught red handed: "Everybody does it."
Uhhhh - no they don't. Your side is the guilty ones.

As long as there is no effective resistance to tyranny...it will flourish.
If all we have is words of our "victimization" we are finished and may as well admit complete surrender.

Words have never stopped tyranny.
Only real, and often painful sacrifice on a massive scale has any chance to put an end to obvious tyranny.
Americans are apparently unwilling to make any real sacrifices for their freedom, hoping someone else will do something and clinging desperately to their assets, comforts and pleasures. This a 100% losing strategy.

We are boo-hooing ourselves into a dangerous corner where oppression and suffering is guaranteed eventually anyway.

Opposing Authoritarian Ideological Fundamentalism.
It doesn't matter. A while back they were stung by being called fascists, so today they use they word to describe anyone who disagrees with them. They did precisely the same thing in response to the Left's over-use of the word "racist". Then they just warp reality to fit their usage of the term.

Over and over and over.

So now, everyone's a big ol' fascist, and everyone's a big ol' racist, and those terribly important words have been diluted into meaning essentially nothing.

Isn't it true you are constantly decrying the inaction of the political right?

Isn't it true you have been doing it for quite a while?
