So there I was, Minding my own Scotch… and I get a message from X. In the most perfunctory way possible he made clear it was time for me to dig myself out from the secure comfort I’ve been enjoying and return to the fray.
Who am I to disagree?
I have to say right up front, it has been an exciting few months. From the ANTIFA-Facists to the complete fabrication of accusations used to slime a man who is far better than I, the Theater of the Absurd never ends.
The timeliness of X’s prompt is exquisite. It just so happened that I was struck by something so profoundly stupid that I was seriously considering putting my drink down. So let’s go there first…
A Gentleman by the name of Ruchir Sharma said the following on what used to be a go to network for business news;
“We may or may not believe in [American exceptionalism], but the financial markets have never believed in it to such an extent,” added Sharma, head of emerging markets and chief global strategist at Morgan Stanley Investment Management.”
Please read that again real quick.
I would ask Mr. Sharma what American Exceptionalism has to do with a booming economy? If he is speaking to Property Rights and the influx of foreign investment which is recognizing the United States as a Safe Haven for their wealth, then okay… maybe… but I’m not sure he is. I believe he is conflating the financial success of the current economic reforms, which are returning the United States to its position as the World Leading Economic Engine, with Freedom and Liberty of the Individual. I would then remind Mr. Sharma that it is the latter which constitutes “American Exceptionalism”.
Why is this such a big deal?
It’s a big friggin’ deal because the Socialist Democrats have been diligently dumbing down our population for decades in the hopes ‘educated’ individuals like Mr. Sharma will intentionally or unintentionally continue to do their work for them. Sadly, they have been very, very, successful.
However, in his defense let’s assume Mr. Sharma knows what American Exceptionalism is. Now let’s take the beginning of his assertion… “We may or may not believe in [American Exceptionalism]…”. I then have to ask who it is that does not believe in Freedom and Liberty of the Individual? You speak as if you know or this opening qualification would not be necessary.
Yes, yes… I know these people are out there Hammering away at the Malleable Proletariat but I like to have them on the record so we all know who they are which is why I ask. (One of the reasons I’ve been hiding out around the Barnes and Noble in Tyson’s Corner, aside from all the TOTALLY COMMON and super awesome Gang Rape Parties that EVERYONE has ALL THE TIME around the short hop to Bethesda, is watching how Trump’s mere existence is bringing these Socialist Democrat A-holes out into the open.)
So Who is it, Mr. Sharma, that does not believe in American Exceptionalism? Who is it exactly that does not believe in the Freedom and Liberty of the Individual and the power inalienable rights has unleashed upon the World propelling the United States to the most powerful country on Earth in just a short few hundred years? Who are these people who believe a person’s rights are bestowed upon them by Government made up of fallible, elitist, narcissistic beings and not God… or the Universe… or simply because they Exist?
It’s okay, Mr. Sharma, I know you can’t do this for several of reasons. 1.) You may be one of those people. 2.) You like your paid gig and wish to keep it by specifically not offending those fallible, narcissistic elitists who employ you. 3.) Both 1 and 2.
So allow me to say what I’m hoping you meant to say.
The Current Economic Boom occurring in The United States is substantially due to the removal of barriers upon the Engine of Capitalism which were erected by Socialist Scum as they believe it’s not ‘Fair’ that Free (er) Markets are so damned successful and restraining them is the only hope for their foolish Command and Control Economic Idiocy to catch up.
Giving you the benefit of the doubt, I’m sure that’s what you wanted to say…
Now we wait for Ruth Buzzy Ginsberg to retire and the ensuing melt down.
The Left is the proverbial ‘drowning man’… it’s going to get worse before it gets better.

The Greeks still need to Get Paid for Nothing.
The is an amazing day for all of us who cannot understand why a serious conversation about subsidizing the idle is always ignored.
It is the beginning…
(And for God’s sake give Scotland what they wish for, their Independence… then hold them to it. The Scot’s are not interested in Learning Mandarin, or for that matter Russian, and someone will have to help them defend the keep.)

The United Kingdom Ended Up Somewhere.
In what can only be considered the biggest Political Blunder of the European Liberal Elitist Ruling Class, they held a Vote… A Referendum… on their policies of the last 40 years. It was a simple vote and the turn out reflected that. It was easy to understand. It was Up or Down.
The Vote was Down.
I have to assume that it was their innate Smug Arrogance which allowed the Referendum to get all the way to the Polls. They must have honestly thought they were going to walk away with it…
Well, An anticipated Victory to Go Nowhere the Fabian Socialist LSE Grads knew they were going to toast, turned out to be Shock and Awe with an order to leave the circle of communal fantasy.
What will happen now is the fallback position of every Big Government Statist.
There will be the intentionally blind declarations of this vote being evidence ‘that Government has not done Enough’ for Britains.
Once no traction is felt with such foolishness then will come ‘they have no idea what they have done’. In other words the British commoners are too stupid to know what’s best for them. They were Drunk…. Stupid… Ignorant. And the Elite will once again comfort themselves by repeating to one other “When faced with a decision the only thing you can count on the masses to do is make the wrong one.”
But herein lies the insidious nature of all Socialist politics.
The Elite will quickly set out upon a course of administering pain upon the British People and all those who side with this Declaration of Independence.
You see, you cannot be allowed to succeed without the guiding hand of Government. And once you agreed some 40 years ago to what was considered the first step towards a Global Utopia of Collective States… backing out was never an option which would be tolerated by ‘serious’ Socialist ‘thinkers’.
This has always been my problem with equating ‘Western Democracy’ with Capitalism and Enlightenment Governing Theory. It is not. It’s Communism Light. It’s the Turtle holding up a Fire Hot World being Hammered into a Utopia by frustrated Monarchists whose ideological leanings would have been better left on the ash heap of Europe’s Feudal History.
Make no mistake, there are those among us who like their power just the way it is… Theirs and Theirs Alone. They believe themselves entitled to it… in the most literal sense. Many of them believe themselves to be Plato’s Philosopher Kings… they believe themselves to be anointed by God… Superior Humans. Pick your poison.
They have no plans of going away… or giving up.
They will not leave this overt disapproval by the ignorant unwashed to go unpunished.

Time to get out your tin foil hats. Push them firmly down on your head and grab a drink.
Let’s suppose for a moment that roughly 20-years ago, when the idea of the European Union was still young, the support it won from the ‘Educated’ Leftists world over was due to their full knowledge it was Doomed to Fail.
Your hat still on?
Now that the EU is, in fact, Failing…
Let’s suppose that the very ‘Educated’ Leftists world over who supported the EU twenty tears ago DO NOT WANT TO SAVE IT because it’s Failure was the desired outcome.
Marx stated that Capitalism must collapse and Marxism/Socialism/Democracy/Progressive Leftist Liberal ideology would rise from the ashes by default.
European Leftists believe Social Democracies to be “Capitalist”. The EU is a collection of Social Democracies.
Let’s combine this with my belief that the latest Trade Agreement which our politicians seem determined to shove down our throats, just like Obama Care, is actually a lifeline for our Socialist Friends over in the EU.
If I’m correct, then this explains why our homegrown ‘Educated’ Leftists also do not support the passage of this Super Secret Trade Legislation. They, with their Fellow Travelers across the pond, want the EU to collapse because they believe that it will result is a Massive Win for Socialism/Marxism.
OK… if you haven’t passed out yet, you can take your hat off.
For the record, I also oppose the Trade Act. But I haven’t read it… and neither have any of our supposed representatives who are trying to convince us it MUST BE PASSED. My default position on all things I have not read is not to agree to it. Pretty simple. I should also state that I do not believe that the obvious outcome of the collapse of Western Socialist Democracies (calling them Capitalism does not make them Caitlyn Jenner) is finally the rise of the ‘right kind of’ Communism. The Social Democracies world over deserve to fail because of their predictably inane ideas. The idea U.S. tax dollars should go to save them from their fate is outrageous.
In the end, I refuse to continue to be a Subject of Socialists…
But it seems that too many of our elected officials see our ‘friends’ across the pond as allies… instead of ideologically challenged associates. This issue is the perfect light in which to view those who we support.
In fact, any one of those who are supposed to be representing us who ask us to support the Super Secret Trade Legislation which neither they nor anyone else has read should be drummed out of politics altogether.
(As a note: Mr. Ryan… you have not read this Act. So STFU.)
You want our support?
Make the Trade Legislation Public.
Allow Us to Read the Trade Legislation. You MUST Read it… because IT’S YOUR JOB.
Allow all of Us to Discuss the Trade Legislation.
Then do what we ask you to… unless it’s in conflict with the Constitution.
I know this would change the current, and clearly comfortable, paradigm of “You’re all too stupid to know what we’re doing.” Gruber Government. But that’s the “Change” we demand. And WE get to Demand things here in America… Or at least we used to.

The Greeks are causing problems Everywhere!
If they’re not supposedly Raping College Coed’s, they’re screwing it up for North American Socialists.
So there I was killing a little time reading Lenin’s pamphlet “Imperialism, The Highest Stage of Capitalism” where he referenced Calwer’s book “An introduction to World Economics” and it dawned on me. Since nothing is new… the citing of 19th century world power and wealth accumulation struck me as oddly relevant to the globe of 2015.
Climbing into the ‘way-back’ machine and ending up in the early nineties you would see many of us decrying the idea of an EU. We did this not because we feared the brilliant long-term success predicted for such a move towards the One World Socialist Utopia, but rather because we knew it would lead to economic instability throughout the world… exactly opposite of what those supporting the idea promised.
We were out in the wilderness attempting to explain to the handful of people who would listen that Huge mistakes could now be made by an entity so large… and the ramifications would be catastrophic. We saw this with the EU insatiable appetite for US Junk Debt in the form of derivatives, and the subsequent economic meltdown of 2008 as a result.
But I must also give a nod to a secondary concern, that being the short-term success at combining all of these desperate countries into one large, for all intents and purposes, Nation.
It was the North American Socialists drive to do the same with the United States, Canada and Mexico.
This is still on the wish list of many Leftist Politicians and the legislation/treaties required are sitting in someones drawer waiting for the right time to be offered up to the American People… or simply Forced Upon Us as was Obamacare.
So let’s travel back to today…
Greece is about to sink the EU. And if not Greece, Spain and Portugal are waiting in the wings watching closely the events and waiting their turn to hold the rest of the EU hostage.
I will offer that the exit of Greece from the EU, read default, will set back the Socialists dream of an ‘Amero’ 50 years. I cannot say they will give up their attempts to destroy Freedom, Liberty and Free Exchange, as they never have. But the very events in Europe we are watching today are unwelcome by the Global Statists as it clearly demonstrates the fragility of monopolies as well as the futility of government planning.
Everybody cheats… including countries.
There are the Makers (Such as Germany) and the Takers (Such as Greece, Spain and Portugal).
The Takers are not interested in making an effort to be responsible for their actions and expendatures.
The Makers will always find themselves enabling the Taker’s addiction to spending and lethargy.
Self-interest will never be removed from the Human Condition… thank God.
Because of that, we are watching the dissolution of yet another Great Socialist Plan right before our eyes.
Luckily this is happening before the Untied States was convinced, or Pushed, into the same such agreement with our neighbors to the North and South of us.
If you are anything like me and read the stories coming out of Europe while wondering why the EU is trying so hard to keep the Greeks in the Club… it’s because the very legitimacy of Socialism is riding on a Healthy, Vibrant EU.
But what Socialists around the world simply cannot embrace is their very Governing Theory is poisonous… and the arrival of Death, Destruction and Oppression is only a matter of time. The results of Force and Acceleration in the name of Administration will always be failure. It’s simply to what degree.
So it is True.
The Greeks are indeed causing havoc Around the World.
However, the only people getting Raped are the Member Nations of the EU.
But they were asking for it.
I mean really… have you seen the way they dress?

Greek Financial Minister (The latest one) has threatened to move Greece to the Bitcoin should the EU not provide them with ‘a deal’.
Let me catch you up…
The Leftists in Greece were recently defeated and replaced by other Leftists. The ‘New’ Leftists do not want to pay their bills (Loans taken from the EU that went to fund Greek welfare and Government Spending). It’s worth noting that the ‘Old’ Leftists also did not want to make payments on the loans taken to fund their spending habits… but… they committed the unforgivable error of agreeing to a payment plan as well as a plan to (gasp!) cut spending in order to assure the repayment plan could be honored.
I want to parallel something happening here in the U.S. Why? because it illustrates a fascinating disconnect found uniquely among Leftist Progressive Socialists.
There is a terrific image floating around the Internets of a young woman holding a sign which reads “Debt is Slavery!”.
But the argument she wishes to convince you of is those who attended College, using your money, should not be required to repay the loans they previously agreed to pay.
So let me catch you up…
College tuition has skyrocketed due entirely to a flood of Government Subsidies in the form of Grants and… Cheap Government Backed Student Loans. (As we know, anytime you subsidize something the price goes Up. The market distortion created by Government interference is no longer debatable by sound minds. Please refer to the Housing Bubble and it calamitous effect on our, and the world’s, economies.) So those young people, who have been fed the idea a college education is a guaranteed ticket to Success, take out massive loans to fund their ‘Education’.
Now they have Debt… Now they are ‘Slaves’. By Choice.
I’m not sure how making bad decisions amounts to a Guaranteed ticket to Success.
Which, brings me back to Greece!
These two seemingly disparate examples have a common connection.
Liberal Progressive Socialists believe they should Never bear Personal Responsibility for their Decisions.
And because of this belief, they Feel They should not be required to pay back the money They begged someone else to give them so They could buy what They wanted when They wanted it. (In the case of Greece, a massive welfare system allowing the perpetuation of a less that productive lifestyle Greeks seem to take pride in. In the case of Liberal Students, a University level Education which supposedly assured them a massive income… according to someone, somewhere.)
And both parties Employ the deeply heartfelt idea of ‘Fairness’ to justify their desire Not to pay their bills.
So let’s recap…
They want Something.
They Beg Someone Else to provide them the Money to Have it.
When the Bill comes Due They decide it’s not Fair.
They Don’t Want to Pay back the Money They were Loaned.
They Refuse to Pay Back the Money They Took.
In terms of Greece… that leaves only the EU taxpayers on the hook with no recourse.
In terms of the U.S… that leaves only the American Taxpayer on the hook with no recourse.
Both are examples of Theft.
Try this at a Restaurant. Or, a Gas Station. Or, a Clothing Store.
The most interesting aspect of this…
Both parties, the People of Greece and the Woman with the Sign, are like Children lobbying You, the people paying the bills, to give them permission to steal… from you, the people paying the bills.
I realize the Objective Media points this out all the time and I’m simply being redundant.
What? They Don’t? Maybe you should be asking “Why?”
So back to Bitcoin… and Greece…
When I read the above headline I had to chuckle. While years of accepting the validity of Socialism is how you get to this point, the threat is hilarious.
I have nothing against Bitcoin, but Bitcoin does not alleviate one’s requirement to pay their bills. It’s actually quite the opposite. If I were the EU, after picking myself up off the floor from the hysterical laughing, I would suggest they make that move ASAP. If there were ever a lesson in personal responsibility, it would be embracing a currency you have no ability to print more of whenever you choose.
This would be a great lesson for the U.S. too.

…Over the Greek Left.
If you’re a passive News Watcher you might’ve heard that ‘The Greek Leftist Party, Siryza, has won power in Greece by a Landslide.
But you might also take away the idea that Leftists winning must mean that something other than Leftists were in power.
You would be wrong.
What happen over the last 48-hours is Leftists took power from Leftists in a Landslide.
The Old Leftists had embraced Fiscal responsibility as demanded from the European Union in order for Greece to retain its membership and continue to receive bail outs from the more prosperous members like Germany.
The New Leftists don’t like the idea of Fiscal responsibility as they don’t think they should have to be more responsible, and/or think the “Austerity measures” are only being applied to the Sheep (Of course they don’t see themselves as Sheep, they never do.) and not all Greek Citizenry, particularly those in Government.
I would tell you the Latter is true… but the tragedy is the Leftist Progressive Ideology is exactly why 1.) They’re in the Fiscal Hole they are in and 2.) The Austerity Measures only Apply to the Sheep.
Socialists Always fight each other over Who gets to control everything… the only time they unite is in their hatred of those of of who believe in Individual Liberty and Freedom.
Which brings us to today.
The Old Left, those Elitist Rich Guys who believe Greeks are Stupid and have no idea how to make the right choice when presented with only one choice to make, decided to try whatever they had to try to save the Great Socialist Dream which has been Greece for decades and by extension the European Union. (They were excited to join the EU in the first place because they knew they were in fiscal trouble.)
In doing so, the Old Left made those who have kept them in power… Greece’s Useful Idiots… angry because the idea of responsibility is completely foreign to them and brings with it difficult times requiring sacrifice. “Austerity” is not Fun. But they had the ‘Fun’, and now they have to pay for the ‘Fun’.
The above set the stage for a ‘New’ Left to “Win Big” during this election cycle. As we know here is the U.S., people tend to vote for people who promise to give them stuff. It’s a rule the Left knows well and uses always.
So what we have here is The Useful Idiot Left throwing out The Elitist A-Hole Left. Leftist on Leftist violence.
Remember, there are no ‘Conservatives’ as we call them in Greece. The ‘Right-Wing’ only means the Right side of the Socialist Spectrum. Actual Capitalists do not exist as a political movement in Greece. You have all the varied flavors of Marxism such as Fascism, Communism, Progressivism, Liberalism, Socialism, etc. some of which the useful idiots label as Capitalism. But Free-market Capitalism protected by Constitutionally Limited Government is non-existent in Greece. (It could be argued it’s non-existent here too… but that’s many other posts.)
The events in Greece are going to be fun to watch as the entire utopian EU dream is at stake.
This turn of events amounts to what happens when a plane gets caught in a flat spin. The outcome is fatal not just for the plane but for all on it and all directly underneath it.
But this is Socialism on Parade.
(It’s also worth noting that the Greek ‘opposition’ parties have long labeled ‘conservative leftists’ and ‘fascists’ as Capitalists. The Left has jockeyed with other Leftist groups for power for 100 years or longer. None of this new. What’s new is the idea that a group of appropriately self-interested countries can get together and trust each other to ‘pull their weight’ and operate for the benefit of the Commune. We, at least those of us firmly grounded in Capitalism and Voluntary trade motivated by Self interest, knew full well it would fail before it started. Socialist Dreams like the EU have never worked. And, they never will… but those who subscribe to these ideas will be doomed to repeat such experiments over and over. If nothing else, you have to admire the tenacity of Useful Idiots. Keep an eye on Spain and Portugal… they’re EU members chock full of Useful Socialists too.)

So… here we are again.
The Epic Failure of Socialism is being laid out on the world stage for all to see.
This time it’s the EU.
Let me line this out in the simplest terms;
The guy who is working and doing well for himself (Germany) is not interested in continuing to support the guys that are not working and don’t take care of themselves (Greece and Spain… soon Portugal followed by the rest of the group sooner than later.).
There you go. That’s it. And it’s always that simple.
Granted all are Socialist, and all consider themselves the smartest countries (people) in the room (world)… but isn’t that also how it always is?
Even Socialists don’t like Socialism when it comes right down to it… they just use the idea to stay in power.
How many times must we (U.S.) experience the first hand failure of Socialist ideas? We personally suffer from bankrupt brilliance such as Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security. We watch the total collapse of the workers paradise in the Soviet Union and Cuba… we see China moving as quickly as possible (possible meaning just fast enough for those in power to stay in power) and yet we double down on our current march to progressive utopia.
The reason we keep reliving this scenario is because the self assessed smartest people in the room do not like Individual Liberty, Capitalism, and the Free-Market that sustains both of them. The reason they don’t like the above is that it doesn’t require their input… only their participation on their own behalf.
When President Bush was asked what the American people can do to rally themselves after the 9/11 attacks he said “Go shopping.” There, of course, was laughter from the Left. Then a shaking of their collective heads regarding how “stupid” or President was. But this reaction was predictable, there is far more to this statement than any Liberal can comprehend… because they cannot envision a society that doesn’t need to be planned by them. They have been taught that Adam Smith “created” free exchange rather than simply observing it as a state of nature. (The default state of economics) Economic activity was exactly what we needed and it was exactly the way the common citizen could participate in fighting those who wished to destroy our way of life. With not a small dose of ironic laughter… isn’t it funny that the current administration is chasing that very same desire, that we all go shopping?
So, here we are again. We will all be treated to front row seats to the total meltdown of European Socialism… live. Hopefully some on this side of the pond will learn, finally, that Socialism sucks… the life out of everyone and everything.
Don’t fool yourself into thinking Leftists will go away anytime soon however, because those in control don’t easily leave the stage. Like I just said, they can’t imagine a world that doesn’t need them planning it.
There is one benefit to all of this…
French wine should get cheaper before it’s all over.

It must be frustrating to be a Socialist in the United States right now…
So close! So very close…
And yet there is fear.
While Democratic Socialism is imploding in Europe, the true believers continue to push forward. While “austerity”, which used to be known as fiscal responsibility, is being proposed in order to save the EU from a complete meltdown the Socialists will have none of it. (The Socialist Party will secure the majority in the parliament of France this week.)
The Left is determined to destroy the current paradigm in Europe (just as they are in the U.S. and elsewhere) but they are getting in the way of a much larger goal.
In their refusal to listen to (take orders from) President Obama they are giving the entire world a glimpse of what they really want. The total and complete collapse of everything remotely resembling free-markets and individual rights. It is desirable to them… it is their stated goal… not something to be avoided or concerned about. Marxists will tell you that in order to rebuild you must first have a “clean” canvas. Marx told us that the complete collapse of Capitalism is what must happen before the Social Utopia will be realized.
We (non-socialists) watch what is going on in disbelief. We “can’t” (don’t want to) believe that there are people out there who wish to destroy our way of life so that they can design it the way they think is best. It seems beyond our comprehension, but it is not… we just don’t want to confront what that really means. And we don’t want to think of what that would require of us… how we see our friends who espouse liberal ideas… the energy we will have to expend in trying to stay informed and aware… the sacrifices and personal responsibility we will have to shoulder in order to protect our way of life. It’s uncomfortable.
But no matter how we want to “feel” about it, there is an ideological war going on, and it has been for 100 years. Free-market Capitalism has been incrementally losing for all of that time. The European Social Democrats finally see their opportunity to seize the day and have fully committed. The Free-Market Capitalists are nowhere to be seen.
However, President Obama sees clearly that the American people are watching. The 24-hour news cycle, government caused housing catastrophe and individuals involvement in the markets through their 401k’s have provided them with a better understanding of trade and economics. (Getting better everyday.) This better understanding is leading them to see the conflict in front of them. The conflict of two mutually exclusive ideas. Socialism (the ideology of subjugation) vs. Capitalism (the ideology of individual freedom).
Here is the risk for the U.S. Left: The voters might come to their senses before we pass the point of no return. This possibility has our homegrown Progressives concerned… if the “masses” in the U.S. wake up soon enough, through the election process they could begin rolling back some, most or all of the Socialist scheme’s foisted upon them over the last 10 decades. From the point of view of Leftists like president Obama et al, this is very inconvenient. The Left cannot allow this to happen. Their dilemma is they control the public schools, mass media and an entirety of one, plus most of the other major political parties… what else can be done? They are relying on you not getting up to speed fast enough to stop them… this is where we are.
(For Anti-Socialists like me…This is what makes the next series of U.S. elections so very important. It goes far beyond voting for your favorite guy, or the most handsome or best speaker. It goes far beyond “wasting your vote to teach them a lesson“. It is really about the beginning, the first steps down the road, of returning to the rights of man and a country our founding fathers envisioned.)
For the Worlds Progressive Leftists it’s about the brass ring. It’s about winning a war they have been fighting right in front of you since the day you were born.
But U.S. Leftists realize how important American participation in this “beautiful transition” is. The problem remains getting the world’s Leftists in lockstep is like herding Crimson Cats… they remain red, but keep going their own directions.
In this there is hope.
There is hope… in personal education, and open discussion, of economics and individual freedom. There is hope in demanding the press do their job and keep politicians in check whether they happen to like them or not. There is hope in initiating cordial conversations which challenge your friends to explain their points of view out loud so they have to make an effort to think about what they think. There is hope… if you don’t give up and give in.
The United States is the last country on Earth that is in a position to represent the individual. The Socialists have control over all the other countries… and how is that working out for the self-proclaimed “smartest people” in the room?
Unfortunately, they would tell you “pretty well”.
Keep an eye on the cats.
(For any of you Leftists who suffered through this entire missive, let me ask you a question. When has it ever worked out well for the Proletariat? Pour yourself a cold glass of Moskovskya and think about that for a while.)

This is an “informational post”.
It will be short… but it is a turn of events we should all be aware of.
Currently the Greek Police are referring complaints and requests for help to an outside source. They are referring the distressed individual to a group called “Golden Dawn”. Golden Dawn is a Socialist/Fascist group that has been called “Neo-Nazi”.
Imagine you call 911 and the dispatcher tells you to call your local KKK representative… and then provides you the number.
Why is this important?
Flashback: The German Workers Party soon to be the National Democratic Socialist Party, otherwise known as NAZI’s, gained popularity by providing “security” in their neighborhoods. The groups providing said security were known as the SA and were marshaled by a man named Rohm… a personal friend of Adolph Hitler. Their friendship gave Hitler a localized “army”, or security force, outside of the German Government that enabled the foundation leading to the SS and SD. I will not bore you with more history… it’s enough to know it’s bad.
This is how it starts… and we have very recent history to illustrate it.
When the police give up… when they openly support Socialist/Fascist thugs… when it’s happening in countries many Liberals who reside in the U.S. believe to be enlightened… it’s time to pay attention.
Thank you for your time.
Now back to your regularly scheduled blog reading.
