“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—for ever.” ―George Orwell, in 1984, describing his vision of a violent, fascistic future
“Political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.” ―George Orwell, Politics and the English Language, long before America’s Democrat Party and Legacy Media became inseparable
Rioters Shut Down Milo Yiannopoulos at Berkeley
As Berkeley book-burners set the First Amendment aflame, the American public was mesmerized by the violence that ensued. Like Nazi Brownshirts, on Kristallnacht—the Night of Broken Glass—leftwing rioters wrought havoc on the University of California campus.
The object of the rioters’ fascistic hatred was Milo Yiannopoulos, a gay Jewish iconoclast adept at tearing down the ideological edifices of the Left with nothing more than sharp wit and risible commentary. Driven by fear, and having lost its erstwhile monopoly on political discourse at the University, the Left let fall its mask, to reveal the naked face of animalistic violence.
As the Constitution burned, the eyes of many Americans opened wide, bearing witness to the truth that Berkeley is nowhere near a sanctuary for free speech, although it is a sanctuary for the likes of violent scofflaws and Nazi Brownshirts. What was laid bare by the stark light of Berkeley’s flames was the truth that the civil society promoted by Dr. King, in a culture of nonviolence and equal protection for all, has been left behind by Progressive Democrats, in favor of a fascistic approach to problem-solving—a culture of ultraviolence!
Remember the Golden Rule?
The culture of the Golden Rule, and America’s Constitutional elaboration of it in the Bill of Rights, is now vigorously under attack. Dr. Martin Luther King would side with free speech and the Golden Rule and would condemn the violent Leftist rioters in a heartbeat. Dr. King believed in non-violent protest, as opposed to the potentially murderous rioting on display at Berkeley recently. And King certainly would have been appalled by television personality Stephen Colbert’s rancorous incitement to violence in the form of displaying Trump advisor Stephen Miller’s head on a spike.
It has been argued that, since many of the rioters were hired by George Soros, their actions do not represent the mainstream thinking of the Democrat Party. But why, then, are Democrat leaders in the Congress not denouncing the violence? Not only are Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and Elizabeth Warren silent with regard to all the violence and destruction, but there are Democrat leaders who even cheer the violence aloud!
For example, Florida Congresswoman Val Demings stated, on Thursday, February 2, 2017, that the violent riots that took place at Berkeley were a “beautiful sight.” And Madonna has visions, we now know, of blowing up the White House.
George Soros’ Fascistic Roots as a Nazi Kapo, in Soros’ Own Words from 60 Minutes
George Soros, whose money has provided fuel for this overtly fascistic transformation of the American Left, also helped the Nazis, after they had reached Budapest, Hungary, in 1944, in the violent confiscation of Jewish property and the orchestration of sending Jews to death camps, pretending all the while not to be Jewish. This made him no better than the Kaposworking at the behest of Nazi guards inside the concentration camps. The job of a proper Kapowas to work closely with the Nazis to control the Jews. Many of these Kapos brutally bullied Jewish prisoners, in order to gain favor with camp guards and thus earn extra privileges. Because Soros’ actions were the same, cruelly mistreating his fellow Jews, in order to receive rewards from Nazi oppressors, he too has been branded a Kapo. And Soros’ conscience is as burnt-out today as it was when he was abetting barbaric Nazis at age fourteen. His backing of thuggish rioters to harm and intimidate others, even to this day, bears this out.
In 1998, Steve Kroft conducted an interview with George Soros on 60 Minutes that still shines light on Soros’ true character:
[KROFT: (Introducing this segment of the interview)] When the Nazis occupied Budapest in 1944, George Soros’ father was a successful lawyer. He lived on an island in the Danube and liked to commute to work in a rowboat. But knowing there were problems ahead for the Jews, he decided to split his family up. He bought them forged papers and he bribed a government official to take 14-year-old George Soros in and swear that he was his Christian godson. But survival carried a heavy price tag. While hundreds of thousands of Hungarian Jews were being shipped off to the death camps, George Soros accompanied his phony godfather on his appointed rounds, confiscating property from the Jews.

KROFT: (Voiceover) . . . by–by posing as a Christian.
Mr. SOROS: (Voiceover) Right.
(Vintage footage of women helping each other get on train; train door closing with people in boxcar)
KROFT: (Voiceover) And you watched lots of people get shipped off to the death camps.
Mr. SOROS: Right. I was 14 years old. And I would say that that’s when my character was made.
KROFT: In what way?
Mr. SOROS: That one should think ahead. One should understand and–and anticipate events and when–when one is threatened. It was a tremendous threat of evil. I mean, it was a–a very personal experience of evil.
KROFT: My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson.
Mr. SOROS: Yes. Yes.
KROFT: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.
Mr. SOROS: Yes. That’s right. Yes.
KROFT: I mean, that’s–that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?
Mr. SOROS: Not–not at all. Not at all. Maybe as a child you don’t–you don’t see the connection. But it was–it created no–no problem at all.
KROFT: No feeling of guilt?
Mr. SOROS: No.
KROFT: For example that, ‘I’m Jewish and here I am, watching these people go. I could just as easily be there. I should be there.’ None of that?
Mr. SOROS: Well, of course I c–I could be on the other side or I could be the one from whom the thing is being taken away. But there was no sense that I shouldn’t be there, because that was–well, actually, in a funny way, it’s just like in markets–that if I weren’t there–of course, I wasn’t doing it, but somebody else would–would–would be taking it away anyhow. And it was the–whether I was there or not, I was only a spectator, the property was being taken away. So the–I had no role in taking away that property. So I had no sense of guilt.

Soros Still Abets Fascism
Just like what Americans witnessed at Baltimore, where the police were told by a Leftist mayor to stand down and allow the rioters to destroy property, Berkeley officials did the same and disallowed police protection for conservatives who had shown up to support Milo. As Rush Limbaugh has pointed out, “Any time there is violent protests, it’s always left-wingers bought and paid for by the Hillary campaign, the Democrat Party, or George Soros, and never once have the Democrats ever condemned them, ’cause they’re proud of them. They’re proud of these anarchists. They’re proud of the people who blow up bank buildings. They’re proud of the people (chuckles).
Until now. What Rush is referring to is the fact that Robert Reich is now trying to blame Breitbart News and Milo Yiannopoulos for hiring the anti-Milo rioters, regardless of the fact that at least one of the rioters has been identified as a UC Berkeley employee. There is also no denying Barack Obama’s dumbfounding pardon of violent terrorist and murderer Oscar Lopez Rivera, the head of the FALN—Fuerzas Armadas de Liberación Nacional (in English, the “Armed Forces of National Liberation”)—whose goal it was to establish a free Puerto Rico, independent of the United States, by murderous means. Lopez Rivera’s group claimed responsibility for over seventy bombings and is responsible for the homicide of at least five people and the serious injury of twelve others, whose relatives are—many of them—still living and find themselves nonplussed by Obama’s decision; some of these people were even Obama voters. Obama’s pardon of this scion of savagery goes a long way to proving Limbaugh’s point: Democrats are proud of violent anti-Americans; indeed, they condone and excuse them.
Trump Reestablishes the Rule of Law
President Trump has brought back law enforcement, security, and the Constitutional principle of the people’s representatives actually making the laws, rather than having a chief executive who dictates by way of executive orders, memos, and phone directives to department heads. The executive order is not mentioned in the Constitution; therefore, their only legitimate purpose is to help enforce the Constitution or the law. Obama’s abuses of executive orders were legendary, using them to 1) modify his own laws, 2) prevent Congress from making a law, or 3) command sweeping policies that overstepped the president’s Constitutional power.
The Lawless Violence of Pen-&-Phone Governance
In January 2014, Obama declared he had a pen and a phone, and he was willing to use them to make laws, if the Congress would not make the laws he wanted. Many violent criminals benefited from Obama’s sanguinary executive orders and actions, by being granted the ability to flee justice in their own countries by taking advantage of Obama’s diktat to the Border Patrol to cease safeguarding America’s border with Mexico. The violent murders of law-abiding Americans, perpetrated by the beneficiaries of Obama’s goodwill towards criminal aliens, is very real: Jamiel Shaw, Jesse Benavides, and Kate Steinle are but a few whose names are numbered among the many Obama-abetted murder victims.
Sabotaging the Golden Rule
Trump’s executive orders protect the American people, and do so in accordance with established law—such as his order to protect Americans from people hailing from terrorist hotbeds. Trump designated the terrorist countries that were signed into law as such by Barack Obama himself, utilizing a 1952 statute that Obama himself also utilized, one year ago, when he restricted travel from Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Sudan. It is ironic that Obama’s travel restrictions were barely reported (by CNN, the New York Times, etc.), while Trump’s became the object of fake news (being labeled a “Muslim ban,” although Muslims are not mentioned in the order and most Muslim countries remain unaffected) and rogue court rulings (which never reference the statute on which Trump’s order is based).
The blocking of Trump’s order will ultimately result in more deaths of innocent Americans by terrorists who benefit from leftwing rulings by activist judges. By not treating Trump with the same respect they gave Obama, when Obama did the same kinds of things, the leftwing media and judiciary are killing the Golden Rule, which is the basis of Western Culture and of the US Constitution. And, by doing so, the Left perpetuates a nasty ideology of fascist violence.
