Know why they call it “the resistance”?
The left stole that from Star Wars.
That’s right. Before Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and the Hillary Clinton 2016 Presidential campaign were using violence to silence their political opponents, “the resistance” was a Luke Skywalker-Darth Vader thing.
Perhaps that’s fitting given the left’s intellectual depth is about that of a kiddie pool. No wonder they have to dumb things down and pretend Hillary Clinton is Luke Skywalker and Trump is Darth Vader. When you’re a dumb-as-a-bag-of-hair liberal that’s way more easy to understand than the never ending comparison of Trump to Hitler.
If Trump were the fascist the left wants you to believe he is, he wouldn’t be that good at it. After all, a real and committed fascist would have used the vast mechanisms of state to silence Stephen Colbert for his dissent. For example, Trump could have had intelligence agencies surreptitiously gather Colbert’s private communications and then leak salacious bits and pieces of it to a #Complicit media. Or he could have had the IRS drag its feet on any and everything related to Colbert just to make it harder for the comedian to tell jokes on a TV show.
Those would be some pretty fascisty things for a White House fascist to do. Yet Trump has done neither of them while for eight years we had an administration that did those things. And. More.
Is Trump’s fascism kind of like racism? The left tells us that racism is like the Force. It’s there whether any evidence of it exists or not. It’s embedded deep in “the system” of “who we are”. You could go for a walk in a park alone and there would still be racism there all around. Is that what Trump’s fascism is like?
Imaginary. Make believe. As much a fiction as Darth Vader and light sabers?
The left currently lives in an imaginary world of their own design. That’s why they have no problem resorting to violence to keep the real world out – reality’s intrusion only serves to remind the left of how fictitious their world really is, and how detached from the real world they really are.
After all, if you turn to any mainstream media source for news on Venezuela you’ll find that reporting is scarce. MSNBC did run a hit piece that attempted to blame popular uprisings across Venezuela on Trump for accepting donations from Citgo (the Venezuelan oil company that routinely tries to influence US elections in Democrats’ favor by manipulating heating oil costs in the American northeast). Apparently Venezuelans are so incensed over Citgo’s alleged donations they’ve taken to battling in the streets against the Venezuelan regime – so says MSNBC.
Rare if ever will you find a mainstream media piece that discusses the praise Bernie Sanders lavished on Hugo Chavez’s socialist nightmare in Venezuela. Or the fact that Venezuela is one of the richest countries on earth with more oil than Saudi Arabia, but a succession of wealth spreaders and anti-one percenters and safe zone-istas in Caracas have impoverished Venezuela. Neither Rachel Maddow (that supposedly intelligent media type who seems to have an inordinate difficulty with word pronunciation) nor F. Chuck Todd (and yes, F Chuck Todd!) will talk about how entitlements became rationing schemes that ultimately left Venezuelan store shelves empty and currency worthless in one of the world’s richest countries.
The left will ignore all that and the fascism rampant in their own ranks to try and keep the real world from interrupting their deluded narrative.
Onward Together indeed.
P.S.: If Trump is Vader, Hillary is Luke, then who gets to be the wookie?
