NAZI REDUX? Modern Leftist ‘Book Burning’

Written by Candace Hardin on July 29, 2014

On the night of May 10, 1933, German students from some of the most prestigious universities, set about burning books that contained “un-German ideas.”

It seems like we should schedule another bonfire.

Anyone with ideas contrary or unflattering to Hillary Clinton should also be censored and “not allowed” to write their books, according to Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill.

Really, “not allowed?”

What part of the First Amendment do you not understand?

If the writer has proof of their point, why not bring the facts to light?

The liberal left seems to need to suppress the truth, or anyone with an opinion contrary to theirs.

The left’s standard M.O. is not to try and prove the point with the facts. They pull the noise factor, the race card and the how dare you think for yourself card.

If anyone has “un-left leaning ideas” their material should be burned. At least, that is the way the left wants to eradicate any independent thought.

I am of the opinion that the liberal left is like my late Chihuahua. She was too small to ever defend herself on her own merit, so she was the loudest, most touchy, easily offended dog in the bunch.

The conservative right is like my standard Poodle. She is calm until there was a real threat. She has nothing to prove.

As a writer, I have had people disagree with me. Sometimes, they were misinformed, some were of a different opinion, and some just did not like it.

However, as an adult, I can agree to disagree.

Disagreement and discord will happen time and again, it is a professional liability, it would be best to get over it now and avoid the rush.

How does anyone miss the fact that our country is creeping forward, inch by inch, to the same mental state as Nazi Germany?

The Reich mantra was to reject anyone who was not up to the Aryan standard. They did their best to eradicate the mentally ill, the physically challenged, the intellectual, the Jew and anyone who went against their lockstep, brain dead ideas.

Ms. Clinton and your people, you are no better than anyone else.

Perhaps, it is time to have some humility.
