• Totalitarianism Brewing: Defending Freedom Makes You a Target of Leftists

    Surge Summary: A couple marked for retribution by anti-gun Leftists for defending their home are sounding the alarm about brewing totalitarian tendencies in America. Shades of Stalinist Russia? It’s unnerving.

    Remember Mark and Patricia McCloskey?  They are the St. Louis couple who defended their home from a mob that broke down the gates to their community and trespassed on their property.  They are being prosecuted by left-wing local officials in St. Louis.

    Mark McCloskey spoke with Maria Bartiromo this morning and warned about the danger conservative Americans are facing from the left’s intolerance.  Referring to efforts to compile “enemies lists” of Trump supporters and donors, Mark McCloskey said:

    “What country do we live in?  Is this Stalinist Russia? . . . I’m shocked that in the United States of America major politicians and political forces are actually talking about creating a list of political adversaries for retribution. . .

    “That’s the way the left crushes its opposition, by threatening their employment, threatening their social standing, threatening to harangue them for the rest of their lives.  That’s not democracy.  That’s totalitarianism.”

    He’s right.  Which is why it is so infuriating to see people like Mitt Romney falling all over themselves to congratulate the candidates who rode that left-wing force to power.  Maybe I missed it, but I don’t recall Romney saying one word against the left-wing fascism that has been unleashed in this country in recent years.
