RS -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.”
What is it exactly about patriotic displays that causes the left to completely lose all sense? The mere sight of a flag to a liberal has become the equivalent of showing a cross to a Satanist or kryptonite to Superman. 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.
But it didn't take long for Patriotic Americans to burn his ass all over the tweeter:
“This is a lunatic take. This manages to insult Holocaust survivors and the US military all in one internet post.”
“You should leave while you still can Charles.”“I guess you missed JFK’s inauguration.” “Let this sink in.” “The tanks are stationary & unarmed for a July 4th parade.”
“Our “concentration camps” detain ILLEGAL migrants,& ALLOW THEM TO LEAVE OR APPLY FOR ASYLUM without the murder, slavery,one normally associates with them.@nytimes employs liars/demagogues.”
“Someday there will be a new Republican president, who you will also breathlessly try to convince us all is Literally Hitler. Pace yourself.”
“2020 is going to hurt you all so so bad.”
“Your constant “EVERYTHING IS LITERALLY HITLER” is going to get him re-elected because people are tired of being constantly told they’re evil incarnate just for not being Democrats.”
“Did you complain this hysterically when Eisenhower, Nixon, Clinton, Reagan, and Bush did it? It’s not the end of the world. Climb back in off the ledge.”The left has lost all connection to reality, as they sit in the freest, wealthiest nation in the history of the world.
