.@naomirwolf I agreed with you 99% on @TuckerCarlsonshow with one exception, this has not happened quickly, it’s just advanced it’s pace from a crawl, after WWII, to a walk during Bush 41, to a run after 9/11/2001. Now we have reached the edge of the cliff of tyranny.
In the 1980’s #YuriBezmenov lectured on the dangers of an open society and how easily it could be subverted. Applying what he warned about subversion, the structured journey towards tyranny (totalitarianism) can be traced back to at least the 1940’s perhaps even further back.
.@SpeakerPelosi, @SenSchumer, DNC leftists & GOP establishment set & controlled the slow pace towards tyranny through planned leftist maneuvers & the compromise of careerism (both the seeds of totalitarianism). Even they fought the recent rapid change of pace before giving in.
Once the slow moving keepers of the tyrannical torch gave in, a faster pace was set by their panic of Trump & empowered citizenry, as new technology allowed true oppression of free speech & thought. In turn, their subversion of the law turned into overt manipulation of the law.
All of the steps on your list were already there, they were just masked by subversion and a slow manipulating pace. Which as history shows, totalitarians only show their true intentions when there is no need to hide them any longer.

@jack We already have the only “fact checker” we need, it’s called the First Amendment.
@jack Facts aren’t always truth as science and socialists prove everyday.
Your company has become one of the three main ways people communicate in the world (face to face, cell phone, social media) therefore it should be regulated by the constitution, not you.
@jack In reality your company should be split up into smaller companies and closely monitored to ensure there is no censorship by you or your employees that undoubtedly have a leftist ideological agenda (fact).

Watching @NYCMayor bad mouth @realDonaldTrump because he has no idea what to do. He wants the president to do his job because @nycgov was not prepared for a real event. For years NYC’s preparation for emergencies have been minimized and full of smoke and mirrors.
So far @NYCMayor has called for the military at least a dozen times. There is no need for the military. There is no chaos in the street. The truth is, NYC has no goods for the hospitals because NYC isn’t prepared. The military isn’t a virus fighting force. Sorry DeBlasio
Most dangerous thing we could do is deploy our military into a virus zone. It would guarantee forces would be depleted because they would get sick. Right now the nation is vulnerable to attack by nefarious world leaders. Military should be ready to fight not doing DeBlasio’s job
