Good Evening, Gentlemen.
In case any of you haven’t noticed, the media have recently been falling all over themselves to push a certain narrative. After Trump remarked offhand that, “I want surveillance of these people that are coming in” (talking about immigrants), the liberal bloggers and establishment GOP pundits have gone into a frenzy, proclaiming The Donald to be the next Hitler. They call him Nazi, Fascist, etc. They claim he was talking about all Muslims when he was actually talking aboutillegal immigrants.
Here’s the funny thing about all of this: The Left have been calling all Republicans, along with anyone else on the Right, “Fascists” and “Nazis” for almost a decade. Disagree with a liberal? You’re a fascist. Vote Republican? You’re a Nazi. Point out that blacks commit over 50% of violent crime despite being 13% of the population? You’re Hitler. Godwin’s Law has been proven time after time.
While this has been a very annoying tactic (for those of us who actually enjoy debate and discussion), and has silenced many of us who don’t have the willpower to ignore these accusations….it turns out that it was all for the best, in the end.
Because now, those on the Left and many in the GOP “establishment” are pointing and shrieking “Fascist Nazi!” But they have been doing this to everyone who has disagreed with them for years…..and those words have lost both their credibility and their sting. While there was a time when those labels would send a man slinking off into the shadows in shame, now they are meaningless. No one takes them seriously anymore.
I titled this post “Boy Who Cried Fascist” for this exact reason. The liberals and the cuckservatives have cried fascist so many times that now, when they are dealing with real fascists and Nazis….their accusations are meaningless. No one believes them.
The next truism that I want to discuss is “When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.” This is one that I cite often. The liberals, leftists, commies, socialists…whatever you want to call them, for the purpose of this post we shall use the term redshirts. The redshirts realized that they could silence dissent by using certain words. They figured out that when they pointed and shrieked these special words, hordes of simple-minded followers would attack and destroy all who opposed them.
Once the redshirts discovered this big red button, this button that silences dissent and raises freelance armies to attack wrong-thinkers, they just kept pressing it. This was their hammer, and every argument, everyone who disagreed with them, looked like a nail. Don’t like Obama? You’re a racist. Don’t like Hillary? You’re a sexist. Don’t like the elites who run this nation from the shadows? You’re an anti-Semite. Oppose Marxism? You’re a fascist nazi who loves Hitler.
The problem with “When all you have is a hammer..” is that it will, invariably, lead to “boy who cried wolf.”
The next, and in my opinion most important, truism to discuss is “I Am Whatever You Say I Am.” Yes, as Jack Donovan once said, I’m quoting the great philosopher Eminem.
When you call someone a racist long enough, they will get tired of being accused of a crime they didn’t commit and embrace the crime. If I’m already being punished for a crime, I may as well commit it, right? Whether the crime be racism, sexism, misogyny, fascism or anything else…call me that name long enough, and I will embrace it and say “so what?”
What we are seeing right now is thousands, tens of thousands, of people saying “so fucking what?” when we are called fascists. Call me a Nazi, my response is “You say Nazi like it’s a bad thing.”
Yes, you dumb fucking redshirts….we are Nazis. We are Fascists. We are Racists. But you’ve cried wolf so many times that when the real wolves arrive, no one will listen to you. And now we will devour the sheep. After a decade or more of being treated like trash, the White Man is about to rise up and put you in your place. You’ve been crying wolf for so long that no one will listen to your screams as we tear you into bloody pieces.
