Yes, the New York Times Charles Blow really said it. He tweeted, “Let this sink in: There are tanks in the nation’s capital and concentration camps at its border. The drift to [sic] toward the unimaginable is unmistakable.”
I am without words. Almost.
Looks like President Trump has really hit a nerve with his “Salute to America” celebration. What is it exactly about patriotic displays that causes the left to completely lose all sense?
The sight of a flag to a liberal has become the equivalent of showing a cross to a Satanist or kryptonite to Superman.
Now that the Trump/Russia collusion theory has been debunked, it appears as if Democrats have traded that narrative for this new one in which Trump is the modern-day Hitler.
And the most ironic thing about it is that liberals are running headlong toward a socialist ideology which actually does have the potential to rob them of their freedom.
It’s dangerous when “opinion leaders” such as Charles Blow and AOC make remarks like this. Before long, these phrases, outrageous as they are, will be picked up by other political commentators and politicians and will soon become part of normal conversation, just as terms like “manufactured crisis” have.
The left has become increasingly anti-American and they no longer even try to hide it.
Let this sink in:
There are tanks in the nation’s capital and concentration camps at its border.
The drift to toward the unimaginable is unmistakable.
