From Hitler to Pinochet and beyond, history shows there are certain steps that any would-be dictator must take to destroy constitutional freedoms.
(Excerpt) Read more at theguardian.com ...
Learning these steps will help you fight!
1. Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy
Trump, Conservatives, Russia ..
2. Create a gulag (prison system) outside the rule of law.
Prisons do not need walls. Think Economic prisons (poverty), Heath prisons (ObamaCare), Poor Education Prison, Group Think Prisons are some examples. Who is creating these prisons?
3. Develop a thug group
Leaders who seek Fascism close down an open society. To do so they send paramilitary groups of scary young men out to terrorize citizens.
4. Set up an internal surveillance system
In every closed society - secret police spy on ordinary people and encourage neighbors to spy on neighbors. Wiretap citizens' phones, read their emails and follow international financial transactions. The true function is to keep citizens docile and inhibit their activism and dissent.
Anyone say Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc?
5. Harass citizens' groups.
The fifth thing you do is related to step four - you infiltrate and harass citizens' groups.
Who's calling for harassment Maxine and Eric?
6. Engage in arbitrary detention and release
7. Target key individuals
Threaten civil servants, artists and academics with job loss if they don't toe the line. Academia is a tinderbox of activism, so those seeking a fascist shift punish academics and students with professional loss if they do not "coordinate", in Goebbels' term, ideologically.
Whos ideologically is pushed today?
8. Control the press
Who controls the press in this country?
9. Dissent equals treason
Cast dissent as "treason" and criticism as "espionage'. Every closing society does this, just as it elaborates laws that increasingly criminalize certain kinds of speech and expand the definition of "spy" and "traitor".
What does the Left accuse the Right of doing to America?
10. Suspend the rule of law
Think, no borders, sanctuary cities, #webelieveher
Take away guns from citizens.
Gee, did Naomi get that wrong? /S
Naomi Wolf? The Naomi Wolf who worked for the Gore campaign trying to change Al ‘Release my Chakra’ Gore’s image to that of an alpha male? That Naomi Wolf?!
Yep, doesn’t mean you can’t learn from the enemy.....
Projection. Liberals accuse conservatives of doing what they themselves are already doing.
Stalinism is their bread and butter.
Nope. Hitler ruined his country. Pinochet saved his.
She was making comparisons of Bush W to Hitler back in the day. Then Obama came along and actually started doing some things that were reminiscent of hitler and ... crickets.
I haven’t read this article but I’d be willing to bet she’s talking about President Trump.
Don't be fooled my pingees, this crazy witch (Naomi Wolf, former Clinton J**z rag) wrote this not about Trump, but about BUSH, in 2007 (after the horrible dictator Bush somehow allowed the democrats to take over Congress, you all recall how Stalin lost control of the Supreme Soviet during the midterms, right?).
I know, old article, but still valid to review today for the Libs thoughts, plans and actions.
It perfectly illiterates lib hysteria, idiocy, and lies.
I’m guessing she’s one of the moonbats who miss Shrub, if only because he gave them back Congress and Zero.
