I am all about equal opportunity. I equally despise both Nazis and Communists.
In fact, the only thing on earth that keeps these types alive when people like us come across them is that there are laws protecting them. So I shake my head at the intensity of anger about a group of Nazis marching in an American city, when a blind eye is turned to the plethora of communist groups from the BLM to the Antifas expressing their violence.
I truly think America is becoming, if not there already, a nation of idiots that are swayed by optics and nothing else. A nation of people that would not know history if it came up and bit them on the ass.
Something that came across my news feed this morning.
According to a disturbingly pleasant graphic from Information is Beautiful entitled simply 20th Century Death, communism was the leading ideological cause of death between 1900 and 2000. The 94 million that perished in China, the Soviet Union, North Korea, Afghanistan, and Eastern Europe easily (and tragically) trump the 28 million that died under fascist regimes during the same period. During the century measured, more people died as a result of communism than from homicide (58 million) and genocide (30 million) put together. The combined death tolls of WWI (37 million) and WWII (66 million) exceed communism’s total by only 9 million.
Here is the final tally - non-combat deaths...thus mass murder for political, ideological reasons. And I suspect that Uncle Joe (Stalin) killed just as many Jews as Adolf did. That is historical reality kids. There has been one Nazi leader. There have been multiple communist leaders from Stalin to Mao, and from Pol Pot to Castro - each with his own take on mass murder.
Communism is the socio-political cancer of our times. While all that is left of nazism (Nationalist Socialists) is an ugly scar...communism is still growing and spreading its disease.
Communist Body Count: 149,469,610
Nazi Body Count: 20,946,000
Nobody likes Nazis...but Nazis are no longer a political force in the world. There are no Nazi countries. There are no Nazi political candidates (at least none that can be taken seriously). Communists on the other hand, being far more clever and imaginative have reinvented themselves and organized along ideological lines defined by their adversaries (Antifa), defined by race hatred (Black Lives Matter, Black Guerrilla Family, Black Panthers), and defined by other counter culture, anti-establishment, anti-wealth ideologies. But make no mistake, at the root of all these movements you will find pure and undiluted communism.
The Nazi in the media is merely a red herring...the attention-getter waved about by the seemingly indignant communist as he gets closer and closer to his goals. America is so entraced by this that they ignore the communist's own onward march.
My take on all the riots and demnstrations: This is a dying gasp of communism in America.
Like him or not, Trump is a symbol as well as a President, And that symbol's election shows that the majority are not communists, socialists, or liberals. That they want and want to hold on to the dream that is America and the opportunity it represents, and not the communist utopia of Jerry Brown and Maxine Waters and Barak Obama.
And the left knows what I have said, that many Americans are historically, and likely actually, illiterate and their lives and thoughts are driven by media optics rather than truth and fact. Their hope is to ensare as many "useful idiots" into their wave of indignant rhetoric that it may stifle anything the president wants to accomplish - and hold the line until 2020.
The communist is eminently more dangerous to America than a mere jihadist. I doubt that even the most melting, offended, skinny jeans wearing snowflake wants to live in REAL communism...but that is what these useful idiots are pushing for...and in this country, something some of us will never allow to happen.
Communism is the enemy of fascism and Fascism the enemy of Communism...but only like two hyenas fighting over the body of an antelope. They are both looking for the same thing.
The enemy of both Communism and Fascism?
It is Capitalism.
