“A mournful discovery:
Who agree with you are ‘insane’
Who do not agree with you are in power.”
Over 700k Russians were rounded-up by Stalin’s dreaded NKVD and summarily shot during his infamous “purges” of 1937/38. Countless others rotted and died in gulags.
Many were executed by “troikas” (secret military tribunals).
But for 44k, their death sentences were personally approved by Stalin. His initials, always scribbled in bright red, appear on 357 separate “lists.”
On Sunday, Bernie Sanders proposed the establishment of a “list” of “disreputable federal law enforcement officers”
He also proposed federal funding to assist states in establishing similar “lists.”
When in power, Bernie will surely establish all kinds of such “lists!”
Of course, membership on such a “list” is arbitrary, but permanent, and despite all phoney
Democrat/socialist/Marxist/Communist drivel about “transparency,” such “lists” are secret, capricious, and ever-lasting!
They’re off to a good start with Red Flag Law “lists!”
Once you’re arbitrarily “red-flagged,” you’re status as a shunned, ever-distrusted, “mentally-ill,” second-class citizen is permanent. Your Second-Amendment Rights as a American Citizen are forever revoked, without trial, without recourse, and all in secret!
No transparent “due process” is ever involved when your name is casually added to the “Red Flag List,” and you can never get off the “list.”
All this, despite the fact that you’ve never been so much as changed with, much less convicted of, any crime, nor have you ever been examined by any real doctor to authoritatively determine your mental-health-status.
Simultaneously, Bernie wants to release from prison violent felons who actually have been, via exhaustive due process, charged, convicted, and sentenced.
So, real criminals go free, while innocent citizens go on a ‘list!”
When you’re wondering what “socialism” looks like, you need look no further!
“Dictatorship of the Communist Party is maintained by recourse to every form of violence.”
