Mark Levin recently wrote on his Facebook page: Is the Democrat Party becoming a fascist party?
I’m starting to think the Democrat Party should rename itself the Fascist Party. Its love of an all powerful, centralized government, and contempt for independent, successful individuals, are traits of a fascist mentality.
Yes, of course, we are living through fascist times.
A political regime, usually totalitarian……ideologically based on centralized government……government control of business……repression of criticism or opposition……a leader cult……and exalting the state…above individual rights.
I no longer wonder how so many people who lived during Hitler’s evil reign of terror could have gone along with the unimaginable inhumanity of Naziism. I used to wonder about it. Not anymore.
I see horrifyingly evil “opinions” expressed by fellow Americans every day on Twitter, and in comment sections of blogs. They don’t just disagree with conservatives – they want us to shut up, lose our jobs, be financially ruined, or to drop dead. They actually root for Republicans to die, and when they do die, the ghouls celebrate their deaths. Not just one or two weirdos engage in this behavior – huge packs of them do.

I do not recognize this leftist human scum as fellow citizens, but as traitors, agents of hostile foreign powers and ideologies.
Their hatred of all things conservative is real and unhinged and it’s stoked by a Commander in Chief whose M/O is to divide and conquer, and who never misses an opportunity to demonize his political opposition.
Charging one’s opponents with bad faith is the ultimate political ad hominem. It obviates argument, fact, logic, history. Conservatives resist Obama’s social-democratic, avowedly transformational agenda not just on principle but on empirical grounds, as well — the economic and moral unraveling of Europe’s social-democratic experiment, on display today from Athens to the streets of London.
Obama’s answer? He doesn’t even engage. That’s the point of these ugly accusations of bad faith. They are the equivalent of branding Republicans enemies of the people.

Many of Obama’s most loyal subjects would volunteer to drive the cattle cars - they would operate the ovens for free.
His minions in the media have spent the last five years ruthlessly race-baiting anyone who disagrees with their precious first black President. No, I won’t call him my President. I didn’t vote for him, and I oppose everything the he stands for. In twenty years, when people wonder what the hell happened to our freedoms, our quality of life – our dignity – I’ll be able to say, I had nothing to do with it – I fought it every step of the way.
Oh, that’s crazy talk, you say.
Who in their right mind could ever have foreseen a headline like this only four short years ago?: Obama Administration: We Can and Will Force Christians to Act Against Their Faith.
As the mandate now stands, the Greens must begin complying with it on Jan. 1. On Nov. 11, U.S. District Judge Joe Heaton refused to grant a preliminary injunction to stop the mandate from being enforced on the Greens while the court decided their case on its merits. In his ruling on the injunction, Judge Heaton determined that the Greens were not likely to establish they had a right to “free exercise” of religion while operating Hobby Lobby.
‘[T]he court concludes plaintiffs have not established a likelihood of success as to their constitutional claims,” said Judge Heaton. “The corporations lack free exercise rights subject to being violated and, as the challenged statutes/regulations are neutral and of general applicability as contemplated by the constitutional standard, plaintiffs are unlikely to successfully establish a constitutional violation in any event.”
The Greens appealed their request for an injunction to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit. A panel of two appeals court judges refused their plea. They then appealed to Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who sits over that circuit, and she declined to reverse the lower courts and issue an injunction.
When Sotomayor ruled against a preliminary injunction on Thursday, the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, which is representing the Greens, issued a statement indicating that the Greens would not start complying with the mandate on Tuesday and that they would continue to pursue their case in federal court.
“Hobby Lobby will continue their appeal before the Tenth Circuit,” said Becket Fund General Counsel Kyle Duncan. “The Supreme Court merely decided not to get involved in the case at this time. It left open the possibility of review after their appeal is completed in the Tenth Circuit. The company will continue to provide health insurance to all qualified employees. To remain true to their faith, it is not their intention, as a company, to pay for abortion-inducing drugs.”
As the nation approaches the much publicized fiscal cliff, it also approaches a moral cliff: Will the Obama administration compel Christians to act against their faith? As of now, the answer seems plain: Starting Tuesday, it will.
And how are fellow Americans who agree with the HHS mandate reacting to the Green family’s moral dilemma?
They don’t see it as a religious liberty issue at all….
A YouTuber created a video featuring comments taken from a Huffpo comment section on a story about Hobby Lobby’s refusal to comply with the HHS mandate. Somehow, for them, the issue boils down to a comfortable slogan: “freedom of choice” because leftists think in slogans. Christians don’t believe people should be able to make their own “choices.”
No, that doesn’t make sense and has nothing to do with the subject at hand – Hobby Lobby employees still have “choices” but because the Green family doesn’t want to pay for all of them, they are labeled “anti-choice” so liberal fascists can lustily root for the punishments the Regime is about to inflict on them guilt-free and without reservation..

“Next came gun registration. People were getting injured by guns. Hitler said that the real way to catch criminals (we still had a few) was by matching serial numbers on guns. Most citizens were law abiding and dutifully marched to the police station to register their firearms. Not long afterwards, the police said that it was best for everyone to turn in their guns. The authorities already knew who had them, so it was futile not to comply voluntarily.
“No more freedom of speech. Anyone who said something against the government was taken away. We knew many people who were arrested, not only Jews, but also priests and ministers who spoke up.“Totalitarianism didn’t come quickly, it took 5 years from 1938 until 1943, to realize full dictatorship in Austria. Had it happened overnight, my countrymen would have fought to the last breath. Instead, we had creeping gradualism. Now, our only weapons were broom handles. The whole idea sounds almost unbelievable that the state, little by little eroded our freedom.”
A generation ago, Diane Feinstein’s proposed gun control bill (to photograph and fingerprint all gun owners) would have resulted in widespread outcry and alarm. A day or so after its announcement, there is hardly a peep from the populace.
…it is about power and a total power over the people. There is a lot of desire to bad mouth the Tsar, particularly by the Communists, who claim he was a tyrant, and yet under him we were armed and under the progressives disarmed. Do not be fooled by a belief that progressives, leftists hate guns. Oh, no, they do not. What they hate is guns in the hands of those who are not marching in lock step of their ideology. They hate guns in the hands of those who think for themselves and do not obey without question. They hate guns in those whom they have slated for a barrel to the back of the ear.So, do not fall for the false promises and do not extinguish the light that is left to allow humanity a measure of self respect.
