“A further point should be made here: Collectivism means the end of truth. To make a totalitarian system function efficiently, it is not enough that everybody should be forced to work for the ends selected by those in control; it is essential that the people should come to regard these ends as their own. This is brought about by propaganda and by complete control of all sources of information.The most effective way of making people accept the validity of the values they are to serve is to persuade them that they are really the same as those they have always held, but which were not properly understood or recognized before. And the most efficient technique to this end is to use the old words but change their meaning. Few traits of totalitarian regimes are at the same time so confusing to the superficial observer and yet so characteristic of the whole intellectual climate as this complete perversion of language.”
~ F.A. Hayek, The Road to Serfdom (1944)
When progressive Democrats say “democracy” is in danger, it means the progressive ideology is losing. When they say America is increasingly isolated, it means America is looking out for itself and not trying to buy its way into the global collectivist club. When Democrats call their opposition “warmongers”, it means the opposition doesn’t want to continue a policy of appeasement. When Democrats say Trump is destroying the country, they mean that he is destroying Obama’s legacy of progressivism. When Democrats say, “that’s not who we are as Americans”, it means that’s not who progressives are – to them, progressivism is the only legitimate ideology for America.
Progressive Democrats ally themselves with America’s enemies because that just how little they care for the country and how much they want power back. They side with illegal immigrants, MS-13, Hamas, North Korea, Iran…and the only reason Russia isn’t on the friends list is because they need a foil to continue their meme of Trump/Russian “collusion”. Democrats are all in on the idea that the enemy of their enemy is their friend.
Following the traditions of their great Democrat presidents, Wilson and FDR, the are willing to re-segregate America and pursue anti-Semitic policies. During Reconstruction, blacks were segregated because they were thought to be a lesser version of human – today, whites are presented as evil, “toxic” and the reason for all the world’s ills. Both policies were based on skin color and both were/are wrong. Democrats ally themselves with the enemies of Israel, blaming the Jewish state for defending itself and not allowing the Islamic Arabs to push them into the sea.
If you want a preview of what progressives are willing to do to individuals who oppose them, look at what they did to candidate (and then president) Trump. Lying and spying – using the legal system to essentially extort people into pleading to something to make it stop. Using the unlimited resources and power of government to go after political enemies. Essentially using your taxes to fund attacks on your liberty. The process is the punishment – even for the innocent.
The only thing President Trump is destroying is the veil which progressive Democrats have hidden behind for decades.
Progressivism is evil personified. It is anti-liberty, anti-individual and anti-American. It is totalitarian, communist and an enemy of free people everywhere.
