Fascism is a religion. The 20th century will be known in history as the century of fascism.
〰️ Benito Mussolini
I’d like to draw some comparisons and contrasts between our present situation and that of #fascist Italy between 1922 and 1945. I choose fascist #Italy rather than #Nazi#Germany because it has always seemed to me a better comparison.
So there’s this person I know, let’s call her “Stacy”... and she were raised in a very conservative/religious home. They suddenly decide that they’ve found the meaning of life and everyone surrounding her was wrong.
(2) you couldn’t convince her of anything but what her “path” was... and it wasn’t a good one. She insisted her friends and family had verbally abused her, and refused to let her “grow”.
(3) Soon after, she left and never came back. She deleted everyone from her life. Her family, her friends, and moved in with some other people. Ones that encouraged this behavior.
.#BASantamaria was a strong player in #auspol late 50's early 60's. If you were growing up in those years you would hear this weird voice on the radio talking about the dangers of #unionism & the need for #RomanCatholics to get involved. It was like the voice from Hell.
I bought a bird feeder. I hung it
on my back porch and filled it
with seed. What a beauty of
a bird feeder it was, as I filled it
lovingly with seed.
Within a week we had hundreds of birds
taking advantage of the
continuous flow of free and
easily accessible food.
But then the birds started
building nests in the boards
of the patio, above the table,
and next to the barbecue.
Then came the crap. It was
everywhere: on the patio tile,
the chairs, the table ...
Then some of the birds
turned mean. They would
dive bomb me and try to
peck me even though I had
fed them out of my own
And others birds were
boisterous and loud. They
sat on the feeder and
squawked and screamed at
all hours of the day and night
There's a tack that's deadly to the cause and injurious to the truth. And that's what's been provided heretofore. Trump's message must be one of "feeling the pain" of those caught in a situation that Americans feel as well but must be given priority. Think carefully.
Meanwhile as the pathetic left continues to grind out the theme of children wrenched from the arms of their parents the rest of the real world focuses on the ever-evolving #IGReport that proves nothing short of astounding to those of us who care about that which is pertinent.
"Many years ago, the then president of The National Council of Churches warned that the danger of the great religious awakening taking place in our country, might become fanatical and be carried into our political and business life!
"Perhaps this was a fair assessment, that is, if you conflate #Christian#Zionism with religious awakening. Unfortunately, these "fanatical" #Evangelicals have 0 faith in the #Christian religion to which they give empty lip service--while paying homage to those who hate #Christ.
"For lack of faith in the actual #Bible, #Evangelicals make Scofield’ Notes, (Scofield! A drunkard and a con-man allied with the Satanist, Darby) --#Evangelicals have turned Scofield’s NOTES into a DIABOLICAL FORCE in our #national life.
[...] "The watchman’s task has always been a thankless one.
"There are treacherous fifth column elements, who are really working for the #defeat of the #nation, at the hands of its enemies.
"These subversive elements readily gain and hold the #public’s ear, because they soothingly tell the people what they want to hear. Go back to sleep, no danger can come, and there is nothing you can do.
A thread about the current year of the virtue-signaller, peak political correctness and hopefully the beginning of the end of the cultural Marxist because of it and the rise of the intellectual dark web. 1/10
We are now living in a time where people can lose their job over a difference of opinion, have their lives destroyed because of who they want to vote for and the #Liberal#MSM in the UK and in the USA lie so blatantly in order to push their agendas through. 2/10
However, it is no longer just the #MSM who lie to virtue-signal to advance a narrative people like @dpakman a pseudo-intellectual deliberately lied to his audience about MS-13 – he should be ashamed of himself, but because he is a liberal, he has no shame. 3/10
1) Donald J. Trump was elected to be @POTUS
He promised to put #AmericaFirst!
14mos later we have....
•100 percent vote by UN Security Council to sanction North Korea.
•41 percent decline in illegal southern border crossings
1. I am a #Democrat, a #Liberal, a #Progressive. I BELIEVE we can be a more perfect union through justice and equality. I work to raise the voices of the oppressed and provide equal opportunities for the disenfranchised. This ethic is the core of the party.
2. When others ridicule us for being too 'politically correct', calling us 'libtards', 'snowflakes', deriding us over 'safe spaces', it matters little to me because I'm secure in the pragmatic foundation that informs our positions and policies.
3. But, like anyone else, if we allow ourselves to be manipulated, we will stray from this pragmatism and lose our way in reactionary responses unfettered by context or logic, weakening our stance by becoming a caricature designed by our opposition.
