Theres a well-worn saying on the right: Scratch a progressive, find a fascist. Usually, thats a bit of hyperbole to point toward the tendency of progressives to embrace top-down, big government solutions to every problem. But in this case, its almost literally true, though the real progressive is embracing a fictional fascist from the show Game of Thrones. Voxs Matt Yglesias published a piece yesterday at Vox arguing that Daenerys was right to burn people alive in the city of Kings Landing because she needed to convince the entire kingdom not to question the dictates of a powerful central government.

Just when you think he's reached a level of stupidity never before seen in the world of commentary, he goes and tops himself. I think it's because he enjoys being topped, and who better to top him than himself.
But in the real world, the Left is always slaughtering people as a part of a "sales campaign" to convince the world that the mass murderers are the good guys.
A strong government? It was already a strong government. The realm did become more like a representative republic like the US because of her actions, but that was not her intent. Then sansa split off and turned the north into North Korea
Tough to govern the dead.
Good one. LOL.
“It was a TV show that went into decline and suffered from bad writing. Nothing more needs to be said of GOT.”
It turned into a pornographic chick show.
I’m sure you could for Stalin in the Ukraine.
Scratch a modern so-called “progressive” and you’ll often find a maniac lusting to use the government to regulate virtually everything in life that isn’t sex.
All feudal kingdom are fascist.
It was a very good show that suffered the same fate as just about every good show. The poofters and radicle feminists that run Hollywood ruined it. By the end of season 6 women ran every kingdom..as if.
Anyone remember WW2?
Dresden? Tokyo? Nagasaki?
All had plenty of civilians and women and children but we sent our bombers over them and burned them to ashes.
Are we mad tyrants?
Stupid arguments by people who have forgotten their own history.
If they had surrendered but we killed them all anyway then yes, wed be mad tyrants. Which is what happened in the show.
What is our “Kings Landing?” DC?
It's also clear the Daenerys and Cersei could not co-exist. Mutual assured destruction awaits them. With tough men out of the way, the women are leading the world to armageddon.
And Jon Snow was one soy latte away from becoming Pajama Boy.
And John Snow was right to kill her to make sure that did not happen.
It’s a TV show, for Gosh sakes!
Do not confuse with real life.
There’s plenty of actual Left-winger supported horrors in the world that actually exist and are ongoing.
—Killing babies and calling it “Women’s Rights”
—Supporting Islam and Sharia law that actually suppresses women and calling it Religious Rights”
—Supporting sex traffickers bringing minors into the USA and calling it “Immigration Rights”
—Letting pedophiles and sex perverts in toilets and showers with little girls and calling it “LGBQT Rights”
To name but a few...
