No wonder Late Night comics don’t tell jokes anymore. It would take too long to explain them.
There was a time, not so long ago, that whichever side you took on an issue that we could at least understand each other.
But whether it’s that hybrid of arrogance and ignorance, the general refusal to hear the other side, or that people really are just that dense, even simple ideas just aren’t getting through.
Here’s the latest example.
In response to Occasio-Cortez’s all-encompassing ideas of being ‘the boss’ and how America must conform to her grand vision of reforms, Senator Cornyn trolled her:
“We were the first to assert that the more complicated the forms assumed by civilization, the more restricted the freedom of the individual must become.” Benito Mussolini

Occasional Cortex lived up (down?) to her nickname.
In case you missed it, while the GOP is calling paying a living wage “socialism,” a Republican Senator full-on quoted National Fascist Party leader and Hitler ally Benito Mussolini like it’s a Hallmark card.

Bless her heart. We’re REALLY at the point that we need to explain an insult, are we?
How shall we put this in a way that she can understand this?
The point of his tweet was that he was calling YOU a fascist, you ignorant twit!
She is the one intent on compelling American behavior to comply to changes she insists we must make… because she knows she cannot PERSUADE us to make those changes. She knows better than the rest of us and is fully prepared to MAKE us do her bidding.
Her followers were no better.
They figured they had ‘outed’ the ‘secret’ fascism of the Republicans by catching them in this quote.
That’s not how this works.

THAT is how this works.
For example, Bernie was laying out his plan for full socialism. When I said this:
He could simplify it and just say 'Peace, Land, Bread' but that might be a little 'on the nose'. https://t.co/2fj5HZ9WU1

I was referencing Lenin’s promise of “Peace, Land and Bread”.
This was a CRITICISM of Bernie’s pledge of Anti-American ‘Positive Rights’ [which, in simplistic terms, promises something will be provided] rather than historical American ‘Negative Rights’ [promising that you have the right to be left the hell alone by your own government].
Will people get it? Probably not.
It might have been just as appropriate for Cornyn to say ‘From each according to their ability, to each according to their need’ (Marx) but they are now long past the point when they see anything wrong with that idea, and he pointed to the totalitarian aspects of AOC’s ‘bold’ new policies about the environment (which is already extending to opinions on other people having children).
If you don’t see that rapidly ‘evolving’ policy of AOC’s trending toward greater and greater centralized control over the individual’s lives, you’ve missed a lot more than the point of Cornyn’s dig.
