Who they are: The left's fascist face is showing itself everywhere now
David Horowitz, who was more than a little familiar with the ways of the extreme left, famously said: "Inside every progressive is a totalitarian screaming to get out."
They're getting out.
Let's take a look at the latest lunacy from the blue coasts. From Breitbart:
A clip from a 1993 episode of CNN's Larry King Live featuring the mother of Biden accuser Tara Reade has seemingly been removed from the Google Play catalog.
The clip is an important piece of information in Reade's allegation that Biden sexually assaulted her in the same year, as it supports her claim that she told her mother about the incident. In the clip, Reade's mother appears to be discussing an incident involving her senator and her daughter, without naming either.
Obviously, someone, with power, wants to erase history, drive it all down the memory hole, and hope no one notices. It's not very different from Josef Stalin erasing human beings from pictures once the fell out of favor.
It follows some of the crazy creeping fascism going on in New York. Today, I wrote about the case of nursing homes there being commanded to accept COVID-19 patients, along with the body bags they were bringing with them, or else.
In Southern California, they've made the beaches, of all places, the flashpoint, commanding people not to enjoy them, even though there was little risk of any disease spreading so long as social distancing was practiced. It's as if they're enjoying their power trip.
Don't forget that also in Los Angeles, Mayor Eric Garcetti vowed to cut off water and power to nonconformists. Remember this from March?
The mayor of Los Angeles on Tuesday threatened to cut the water supply and power for any non-essential business that doesn't comply with the city's coronavirus shutdown measures. These businesses could also face misdemeanor charges for violating the "safer at home" emergency orders.
"We're still getting reports each day of non-essential businesses continuing to operate as normal," Mayor Eric Garcetti said in his daily coronavirus briefing earlier this week. "This behavior is irresponsible and selfish."
"You know who you are," the mayor added. "You need to stop it. This is your chance to step up and shut it down, because if you don't, we will shut you down." He also urged citizens to report any non-essential businesses that are still operating as usual during the lockdown using this online form.
As the mayor noted, the snitch lines, another feature of fascism, are already in place.
This is who the Democrats are. Controlling information. Cutting off water and power to nonconformists. Initiating irrational rules for rules' sake. Siccing the snitches. All of these are well known features, not bugs, of fascism and any totalitarian system of government. Now we are seeing, very swiftly in fact, how it's all piling up here, from the acts of the supposedly democratic progressives, their inner totalitarians screaming to get out and actually getting out.
