Which Side Contains the Totalitarians?

 Is it the Left, or those opposed to their agenda, who:

  • Will use force to ensure that opposition to 'the message' is not tolerated?
  • Cannot express even mild opposition to that message at work, lest they lose their job?
  • Cannot even refuse to voice support for that message in public without being attacked?
  • Has crowds forcing compliance?
  • Sics the dogs of technology on NLDs (Non-Leftist Dissenters)?
    • Taking away social media accounts
    • De-Platforming
    • Pushing VISA, MC, and banks to refuse services to them (is that not what is called 'restraint of trade'?)
    • Using hacking, DOS, and other underhanded means to deny them the ability to speak/write non-approved truth
  • Sending crowds of people to chant, threaten, vandalize their businesses, homes, and places of work?
Rush has it right - we either win this November, or the Left will use government power to shut down all opposition. That is not to say that the Left will quit at that point. We will still be tied up in court, harassed in Congress, stymied by the actions of the Deep State, in any case.

But failure to defeat the Left at the ballot box is "Game Over". And, there is no Replay.



The problem is that, as Bill Whittle* observes with many others, it won't be over on election day. The Left will "find" and outright manufacture enough votes to - at least for the vast majority of the mindless sheeple - flip states to Biden. Meanwhile the enemedia will preach that this is all perfectly normal and nothing is awry.

And let's assume Trump does prevail, and we retake the House and keep the Senate, it won't be over. The enemedia will be full-court press, as will the Left, that Trump must have cheated, colluded with Putin, etc., etc., etc. ad nauseum. Which will be their justification to continue to riot.

As an anarchist (anarcho-capitalist, or in other words, someone neither left nor right) I can safely say that the left are less tolerant than the right, these days. This is a change from the 1960's and 1970's and somewhat later, when leftists were more tolerant.

I guess it boils down, to who has power. To have power implies there is no need to tolerate others. "Give peace a chance"? Not any more; leftists no longer have any use for that. The left these days now controls all our institutions. Their hand is on the cudgel. But the institutions will now be abandoned by the people, who prefer not to be forced.

"The State never intentionally confronts a man's sense, intellectual or moral, but only his body, his senses. It is not armed with superior wit or honesty, but with superior physical strength. I was not born to be forced. I will breathe after my own fashion. Let us see who is the strongest."
-- Henry David Thoreau, "Civil Disobedience" [1849]
