What we have witnessed in the past couple of weeks is the so far successful attempt of the Democratic Party to usher in Fascism and we must not let it take hold. The 40th President warned us about it
”If fascism ever comes to America, it will come in the name of liberalism”
What is fascism: Fascism is the forcible suppression of opposition and regimentation of society and the economy.
The Democratic Party, Big Tech, Academia and now even financial institutions all using the “cancel culture” not only to shame but to destroy Donald Trump and those who have supported him. They bare using the excuse of Trump’s opposition to having the the Electoral College certified, even though history shows us that members of the Democratic Party have challenged the certification for the past three elected Republican candidates including the one and only Donald J .Trump.
America has always made room for dissenting voices, it’s the main reason the Founding Fathers were so opposed to adopting democracy as our form of government, they understood its potential to concede to “mob rule”.... and that is what we are seeing now.
Democratic leaders like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez are calling for the expulsion of Senators Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley for their part in seeking a delay of certifying the Electoral College. Big Tech giants have removed our President and others from their social media platform and if that wasn’t enough, Big Tech has even blocked access to other platforms that will allow for dissenting voices to be heard as Apple has removed Parler from their services. Recently, universities have been taking back “Honorary Degrees” from Trump and his supporters in Congress, Walmart has suspended any donations to anyone who has supported Trump and financial institutions are cutting ties with the President.
We are so much better than this. These actions just serve to further divide the country. Freedom of speech is all about protecting the voices we don’t agree with. If you’re not willing to do that then you don’t support the people’s right to think for themselves. Wake up America!
