Trump Trumps Hate

Nachman Mostofsky

What happens when progressive fascist and progressive communists converge in a major metropolitan city?

Well, both sides blame Jews for all the world’s ills, and decide to beat each other up to prove which of them are the bigger anti-Semites!

Welcome to 1930’s Berlin. (See photo)

To understand where this fight comes from, you must know the history of the “progressive” movements. They all originate from the writings of Karl Marx.

Marx believed that capitalism would fail and the “working class” would rise-up and take over the means of production. Fast forward a few decades (especially the roaring 20’s), and the working class was flourishing, facilitated by America’s free markets. Marx was wrong. But there were people that were hell bent on realizing Marx’s ideas. Each, though, had different avenues to get to their socialist utopia.

There were three major divisions (a fourth if you include FDR’s NRA). You have the Fascists in Italy, the Communists in Russia, and the National Socialists in Germany. Each leader (Mussolini, Stalin, and Hitler respectively) believed themselves to be full-fledged Marxists. Each believed that only their way could lead to the Utopia that Marx envisioned. It is why all three countries spent the first third of WW2 as allies (and had Germany not invaded Russia in Operation Barbarossa in 1941, they most probably would have remained allies throughout the entirety of the war.)

Now it seems these lunatic ideas have taken root in the U.S., though with rapidly paced rebranding. What started out as Occupy Wall Street became BLM, which has now metamorphosed into an old, but rarely used term Anti-Fascists, or AntiFa for short. All these groups are led by the same people and funded by George Soros. Anti-Fascists does not mean liberty loving conservative; it means communists or anarchists (both leading to tyranny). The term actually was coined by the members of the Frankfurt School, a small group of German disenfranchised communists who fled Germany and came to the US at the outset of Hitler’s taking over of the German government. They mixed Marxism with other utopian sociological theories. Basically they ere early social justice warriors.

Therefore, President Trump was correct is slamming both sides of this fight, because they are both antithetical to the historical makeup of the United States. Our country was founded on the adherence to free-market principles based on personal liberty, protecting of the civil society, and personal property rights.

Those on the left, and right, that are slamming President Trump are wrong. Very wrong. People complained how President Obama would jump to conclusions when there were race related incidents (yet somehow, he never ran to a microphone when cops were shot, mostly by BLM supporters). So, President Trump rightly waited a day or so, then in some of the strongest language yet to come from him, blasted both sides for the violence. And from videos that have since surfaced, it seems he was right. Though reprehensible, the neo-Nazis that marched were not the instigators of the violence. Yes, they showed up in body armor, but it seems it was due to the knowledge they needed it from past experiences in clashes with AntiFa. Video after video shows first punches and swings with nail embedded clubs by AntiFa. They show rocks, urine and M-80’s being thrown at cops and the neo-Nazis. So yes, Trump was correct in blaming both “sides.” Because both sides are equally evil.

This is not to condone in any way the neo-Nazis that marched. But when in 1977 they marched in Skokie, they were met with peaceful protests, and everyone saw them for the vile racists that they are.

Our freedom of speech is sacrosanct. It allows all to speak, even those with reprehensible ideas. As Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis wrote: “If there be time to expose through discussion the falsehood and fallacies, to avert the evil by the processes of education, the remedy to be applied is more speech, not enforced silence.” In a nutshell, what Justice Brandeis wrote is that bad speech must be met with more speech (of the good variety), and not to ban speech as those in AntiFa and BLM want. Because when people feel they aren’t able to redress their government with speech, they don’t use their voices, they use violence!

Here is the entirety of President Trump’s Sunday statement on the Virginia incident, including the murder of one of the protestors. For those that believe he didn’t speak strongly enough, feel free to just read the bolded portions. Then try to find similarly strong statements from other presidents!

PRESIDENT TRUMP: “I just met with FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The Department of Justice has opened a civil rights investigation into the deadly car attack that killed one innocent American and wounded 20 others. To anyone who acted criminally in this weekend’s racist violence, you will be held fully accountable. Justice will be delivered.

“As I said on Saturday, we condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence. It has no place in America.

“And as I have said many times before, no matter the color of our skin, we all live under the same laws, we all salute the same great flag, and we are all made by the same almighty God. We must love each other, show affection for each other, and unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry, and violence. We must rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans.

Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.

“We are a nation founded on the truth that all of us are created equal. We are equal in the eyes of our Creator. We are equal under the law. And we are equal under our Constitution. Those who spread violence in the name of bigotry strike at the very core of America.

“Two days ago, a young American woman, Heather Heyer, was tragically killed. Her death fills us with grief, and we send her family our thoughts, our prayers, and our love.

“We also mourn the two Virginia state troopers who died in service to their community, their commonwealth, and their country. Troopers Jay Cullen and Burke Bates exemplify the very best of America, and our hearts go out to their families, their friends, and every member of American law enforcement.

“These three fallen Americans embody the goodness and decency of our nation. In times such as these, America has always shown its true character: responding to hate with love, division with unity, and violence with an unwavering resolve for justice.

“As a candidate, I promised to restore law and order to our country, and our federal law enforcement agencies are following through on that pledge. We will spare no resource in fighting so that every American child can grow up free from violence and fear. We will defend and protect the sacred rights of all Americans, and we will work together so that every citizen in this blessed land is free to follow their dreams in their hearts and to express the love and joy in their souls.

“Thank you. God bless you. And God bless America. Thank you very much.”

So, I leave you with one question: Why can’t the progressives all just get along?
