Progressive Fascism

I’ve accused progressives of flirting with fascism before, and I’m going to do it again. One reason is that progressives have no problem using fascist tactics, whether the “Big Lie” (“911 was an inside job”) or intimidating opponents’ families.

A recent example was this past Sunday, when a crowd of 500 purple-shirted SEIU thugs were bussed into a residential neighborhood, blocked traffic and trespassed on private property of an attorney for Bank of America.

They claimed they were protesting “corporate greed” (forget that SEIU owes BoA $90 million or that the union is attempting to organize BoA’s tellers — It’s all about “corporate greed”).

Since the only person in the attorney’s home at the time was his teenage son, the thugs settled for intimidating him. The youngster locked himself in a bathroom until the “protesters” finally left.

What is perhaps more disturbing in my mind is that not only were there were no arrests, but that the local police actually escorted the SEIU thugs to the scene and then protected them.

In the ’20s and ’30s, police would escort Germany’s Brown Shirts to and from their demonstrations; in 2010, police are doing the same thing for America’s Purple Shirts.

So, yes, I call them fascists.
