Fear An Old Foe!

Closing Thought–09May19

Is it 1950?

No?

Then why am I having to listen to yet another mental midget whip up fear from 60 years ago?

The Commies are coming! The Commies are coming!

It seems that the art of lying is rubbing off on all those Congressional enablers of Donald Trump…..just recently the chants of the Commies are coming could be heard from a rally of GOPer Matt Shea of Washington…..

Washington state Republican representative Matt Shea and several associates regaled an audience with conspiracy theories, separatist visions, and exhortations for listeners to arm themselves ahead of a looming civil war, at a gathering at a remote north-eastern religious compound last year.

In recordings obtained by the Guardian, Shea and Jack Robertson, also known as radio personality John Jacob Schmidt, invoked their visions and fears of a violent leftist revolt in speeches at the 2018 God and Country event in Marble.

The Guardian last week published leaked chat records in which Shea and Robertson were revealed to have discussed the use of surveillance, “psyops” and violence against liberal and leftist activists.

 
Are there truly still those so goddamn ignorant that they will believe this lie?
 
There must be for I hear it repeated (in various forms) almost daily….and not all from the GOP…..even the corporate Dems have a version of this meme……
 
Of course it is bullshit but that never stopped a politician from voicing such crap…..I will have more to say on this as the election draws nearer……
 
That is it from me for the day…..have a day…..

  1. It really is quite ludicrous to call what counts as the American Left Communists. They are not even remotely Socialist, let alone Communist. Just rabble-rousing of course.
    Best wishes, Pete.
