The liberal crazies, from actor/director Rob Reiner to once conservative, now “ideologue for sale” Joe Scarborough, have their knickers in a knot over the potential that America may drift into fascism upon the possible election of Donald Trump this November. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PogSc-d_3IA
How deliciously ironic that these lefties express concern over phantom fascism in the future as they look the other way while their Grand Poobah, Joe Biden, is laying out a clinic in fascist tactics as this article is being written.
This is the same Joe Biden administration that has actually brought criminal charges against its political enemies. Trump never did so, even though he had ample opportunity and justification against Hillary Clinton. In an act of unappreciated magnanimity, Trump kicked off his first few days by declaring he would let bygones be bygones, and for the good of the country, would not pursue charges against Clinton for illegally moving her server to an unprotected base. https://www.politico.com/story/2016/11/trump-clinton-investigation-kellyanne-conway-231735
That doesn’t look like fascism to us.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden‘s Justice Department and FBI have engaged in one action after another that would make even J. Edgar Hoover blush.
For maybe the first time in the history of this nation, the FBI raided a political opponent’s attorney’s office to collect attorney-client privileged documents. They raided the offices and/or the homes of not only Michael Cohen, but also Rudy Giuliani. https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/fbi-raids-office-michael-cohen-trumps-personal-lawyer/story?id=54345177
They arrested Trump’s lawyers, Sydney Powell and Kenneth Chesebro, simply for giving advice. https://www.wbaltv.com/article/trump-lawyers-charged-georgia-case/44820149
Yes, Cohen pleaded guilty to crimes, but they were primarily for tax evasion and his taxi and limousine service. https://www.wbaltv.com/article/trump-lawyers-charged-georgia-case/44820149
Yes, Powell and Chesborough pleaded guilty in the Georgia indictments, but the settlements were so weak, no jail time or license suspension was issued. It was an indictment to embarrass a political enemy. https://www.nationalreview.com/2023/10/sidney-powells-guilty-plea-points-to-a-faltering-case-in-atlanta/
That looks like something right out of the old KGB playbook.
How about Democrats, such as New York Attorney General Letitia James, making promises before the election that their goal in getting elected was to take down President Trump? https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2021/may/26/letitia-james-new-york-ag-taints-case-well-documen/
They didn’t know what the crime was, but they sure as heck would go about finding one. Sounds like the old Joseph Stalin line of “find me the person and I’ll tell you the crime.” This is fascism at its worst, yet neither Rob Reiner nor Joe Scarborough seemed the slightest bit concerned.
And how is there not an element of fascism as the Biden government colluded with private entities from Stanford University professors to social media giants to stifle the speech of their conservative political enemies? video.twimg.com/amplify_video/1723437938057596928/vid/avc1/640×360/2BS0dMifF3f2sLwV.mp4?tag=14
They did it by setting up algorithms to block conservative tweets or Facebook posts, and by colluding with 51 former intelligence agency spies to lie about the Hunter Biden laptop as being Russian disinformation.
How about the fascist tactics of the deep state embodied by Trump-hating FBI agents Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, who admitted that they would take whatever actions were necessary to topple Donald Trump?
How about the FBI lying to FISA courts in order to get subpoenas and wire surveillance opportunities against the Trump campaign? https://apnews.com/article/election-2020-b9b3c7ef398d00d5dfee9170d66cefec
How about the fascist tactics of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, including Jake Sullivan (who presently helps run our foreign policy agencies) in setting up a fraud by sending their lawyer to the FBI to plant lies and disinformation to establish a bogus predicate to spy on Trump and thereafter leaking bits and pieces to create the false narrative that Trump was a Russian asset? https://nypost.com/2021/11/09/biden-nsa-jake-sullivans-future-questioned-over-russia-hoax-role/
Sounds like fascism to us.
How about Biden’s DOJ labeling as domestic terrorists parents complaining about the raping of their child by a boy allowed in a girls’ bathroom? https://www.texasattorneygeneral.gov/news/releases/ag-paxton-sues-biden-administration-silencing-parents-labeling-them-terrorists
How about the FBI raiding the home of a pro-life demonstrator and arresting him in front of his kids at six o’clock in the morning, only to have the charges tossed by a jury? Sounds like the old East German fascist state to us. https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/253523/acquitted-pro-life-activist-mark-houck-reveals-details-of-fbi-raid-will-press-charges
And let’s not forget how Biden’s henchmen sent the word out to anyone even thinking about criticizing them. Does anyone in their right mind think it was mere coincidence that the IRS was sent to knock on the door of journalist Mike Taibbi as he was testifying before Congress against the deep state’s fascist activities? https://nypost.com/2023/03/28/irs-visited-twitter-files-journalist-matt-taibbis-home-same-day-as-congressional-testimony/#
Does anyone think it was mere coincidence that Biden’s FBI raided the home of the aide of New York City Mayor Eric Adams at the exact moment Adams was on an airplane en route to the White House to complain about Biden’s chaotic border policy that was bankrupting the city? https://www.cbsnews.com/newyork/news/fbi-raids-home-of-major-fundraiser-for-nyc-mayor-eric-adams/
None of these outrageous actions by the current administration ruffled any feathers for these leftists now crying about a potential fascist Trump regime.
Well, Trump was in office for four years. No liberals were falsely placed in jail. No left-leaning cable shows, social media or newspapers had its speech quashed.
We wish we could say that was the case for Joe Biden’s critics.
