I am getting damned tired of the words “white supremacy” or variants thereof being paired with any mention of President Trump, Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley or anyone else in the GOP or on the right.
It is now an article of faith in the media and the Democrat Party (but I repeat myself) that the Capitol riot had nothing to do with anger about the government ignoring election fraud grievances and all about “white supremacy”.
There is absolutely no evidence of “white supremacy” had anything to do with it. It is a lie, a slander and a libel – and yet, it is repeated hourly with the conviction of saying “The sun will rise tomorrow.”
It has come down to the absurd and disgusting point when Democrats define “white supremacy” as treating black Americans as human beings and not vote bearing pets.
The media loves to refer to conservatives, Trump supporters and the GOP as “Nazis”, even as they adopt the “Big Lie” strategy of Josef Goebbels, Hitler’s Reich Minister of Propaganda.
Most people know the first sentence of Goebbels quote about the “Big Lie”, but the entire passage reveals the role of state censorship in enforcing the propaganda effort:
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
Nothing the right has done even comes close to Goebbels extended description of the “Big Lie” process – we don’t call for people who oppose us to be silenced, have their careers destroyed, shunned from society or have their businesses shut down. We don’t call for them to be banned from social media, to be “de-programmed” or have their children sent to re-education camps. We haven’t called for any former presidents to be erased from history.
Every single one of those aforementioned things has been expressed by Democrats.
We just don’t do things that way – but the process Goebbels described fits pretty damn tight with what contemporary Washington Democrats are proposing and what their de facto Reich Ministry (consisting of of the social media companies and the Big Tech oligarchs) has already done.
First of all, I know not all Democrats fall into this category – and they never miss an opportunity to castigate me for generalizing – but they vote for people who are. I can’t decide if the people for whom they vote are mentally ill, evil or both.
People of good faith on both sides need to recognize the destructive reality of what is being proposed in D.C. right now or we all will suffer.
