After committing acts tantamount to felonious obstruction of justice, Government officials, in Chicago, tell demonstrators, enraged by an attempted cover up of a shooting of an unarmed black man, that they are allowed to demonstrate but not to commit crimes.  That privilege is reserved for politicians and police officials.

  1. What we are witnessing is the spread of Fascism in the United States. Let me offer this example of how Fascist regimes spread their influence:

    Most of these regimes maintained Draconian systems of criminal justice with huge prison populations. The police were often glorified and had almost unchecked power, leading to rampant abuse. “Normal” and political crime were often merged into trumped-up criminal charges and sometimes used against political opponents of the regime. Fear, and hatred, of criminals or “traitors” was often promoted among the population as an excuse for more unchecked police power.

    These fascist regimes often used identification of enemies/scapegoats as a unifying cause. The most significant common thread among these regimes was the use of scapegoating as a means to divert the people’s attention from other problems, to shift blame for failures, and to channel frustration in controlled directions. The methods of choice—relentless propaganda and disinformation—were usually effective. Often the regimes would incite “spontaneous” acts against the target scapegoats, usually communists, socialists, liberals, Jews, ethnic and racial minorities, traditional national enemies, members of other religions, secularists, homosexuals, and “terrorists.” Active opponents of these regimes were inevitably labeled as terrorists and dealt with accordingly.

    Does any of this sound familiar? It should.
