Hitler and his minions equated “speech they disagreed with “ to “violence” too...and took it from there.

I watch Hillary pretend to be a normal human being with great amusement.

She always slips up.

She reminds me of Peter Sellers in this famous film clip from Dr. Strangelove:

The last category of fruits by which we may judge the character of the Modern Attack consists in the fruit it bears in the field of the intelligence_what it does to human reason.

When the Modern Attack was gathering, a couple of lifetimes ago, while it was still confined to a small number of academic men, the first assault upon reason began. It seemed to make but little progress outside a restricted circle. The plain man and his common-sense (which are the strongholds of reason) were not affected. Today they are.

But reason today is everywhere decried. The ancient process of conviction by argument and proof is replaced by reiterated affirmation; and almost all the terms which were the glory of reason carry with them now an atmosphere of contempt.

See what has happened for instance to the word "logic," to the word "controversy"; note such popular phrases as "No one yet was ever convinced by argument," or again, "Anything may be proved," or "That may be all right in logic, but in practice it is very different." The speech of men is becoming saturated with expressions which everywhere connote contempt for the use of the intelligence.

But the Faith and the use of the intelligence are inextricably bound up. The use of reason is a main part_or rather the foundation_of all inquiry into the highest things. It was precisely because reason was given this divine authority that the Church proclaimed mystery_that is, admitted reason to have its limits. It had to be so, lest the absolute powers ascribed to reason should lead to the exclusion of truths which the reason might accept but could not demonstrate. Reason was limited by mystery only more to enhance the sovereignty of reason in its own sphere.

When reason is dethroned, not only is Faith dethroned (the two subversions go together) but every moral and legitimate activity of the human soul is dethroned at the same time. There is no God. So the words "God is Truth" which the mind of Christian Europe used as a postulate in all it did, cease to have meaning. None can analyse the rightful authority of government nor set bounds to it. In the absence of reason, political authority reposing on mere force is boundless. And reason is thus made a victim because Humanity itself is what the Modern Attack is destroying in its false religion of humanity. Reason being the crown of man and at the same time his distinguishing mark, the Anarchs march against reason as their principle enemy.

—Hilaire Belloc, The Great Heresies, Chapter 7, "The Modern Attack"

"We are not afraid to entrust the American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies, and competitive values. For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people." – John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Liberals are seldom correct on anything. That fact can be negated, however, if they control the entire debate and can quash any other opinion.

You don’t need to prove the moon is made of green cheese if you can shut up everyone who has proof otherwise.

“I’m sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we’re Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration.”
- Hillary Rodham Clinton

(I guess Hillary 2.0 would shut down Hillary 1.0 as a “hater”.)

We cannot let a minority of people, and that’s what it is, it is a minority of people, hold a viewpoint that terrorizes the majority of people,” Clinton said during a live CNN town hall.

In other words, it’s not just firearms that are a problem but our viewpoint, our very thoughts.

So even if you just have a viewpoint of protecting our god-given and constitutionally affirmed commonsense civil rights, you are committing a Thought Crime.

Especially one who’d be taking the reins from an administration that flagrantly uses the power of the federal government to get people it doesn’t like to stop saying things of which it does not approve.

*Needs fixinf*

Especially one who’d be taking the reins from an administration where she herself also flagrantly used the power of the federal government to get people it doesn’t like to stop saying things of which it does not approve.

Better. Kindly notify MS Hamm........:-)
