The Democrat Party’s ‘BIG Lie’

Demo hacks have excelled at “distorting the truth infamously.”

“No Wall of words, no mound of parchment can be so formed as to stand against the sweeping torrent of boundless ambition on the one side, aided by the sapping current of corrupted morals on the other.” —George Washington (1798)

Thirty years ago, Texas attorney and civil libertarian Mike Godwin, then associated with the Electronic Frontier Foundation but more recently associated with the ChiCom-controlled social media data-mining platform TikTok, sarcastically asserted a “natural law of Usenet” — Usenet being an early computer-based communication system that preceded the World Wide Web. He declared, “As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one.” That adage became known as “Godwin’s Law.”

Of course, back then online discussions were few and far between, as the coded framework for the Internet was still being developed. Today, given the growth of social media giants like Facebook, Twitter, and the aforementioned TikTok, online “discussions” are ubiquitous and frequently contentious when the topic is Donald Trump or gender devolution.

In 2018, Don Trump Jr. got spanked by the leftist fact-check commissars at PolitiFact for comparing the socialist Democrat Party platform to that of the NAZI Party: “You see the Nazi platform from the early 1930s … look at it compared to the (Democratic Party) platform of today, you’re saying, ‘Man, those things are awfully similar.’” (Recall that NAZI is an acronym for Hitler’s antisemitic National Socialist German Workers’ Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei). That’s right, the bloodiest fascists in history were, in fact, socialists.)

The socialist apologists at PolitiFact gave Trump’s assertion a “Pants on Fire” rating, because “only a small number of elements of the two platforms are clearly similar.”

“Only a small number”!

A decade ago, when Barack Obama was the chief Demo propagandist, I outlined how he and his party had mastered the “Art of the BIG Lie,” as have their Leftmedia publicists. No, I didn’t call Obama a “NAZI,” but it is a page right out of Adolf Hitler’s 1925 autobiography, Mein Kampf, in which he noted that the lie must be so big that the public would not believe anyone would be so audacious as to fabricate it.

In the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.

Democrat Party hacks have excelled at “distorting the truth infamously,” but you won’t find them propagating BIG Lies in their political platform. However, they exercise it every time they violate their sworn oaths “to support and defend” the Constitution.

For those who find the BIG Lie assertion too strident, perhaps they can make the socialist connection. In Mein Kampf, Hitler also wrote of his National Socialist party, “The party … must not become a servant of the masses, but their master.” With respect to the socialist state and individual Liberty, he wrote, “The unity of a nation’s spirit and will are worth far more than the freedom of the spirit and will of an individual; and that the higher interests involved in the life of the whole must here set the limits and lay down the duties of the interests of the individual.”

Hitler’s regime was founded on his premise, “We are Socialists, we are enemies of the capitalistic economic system … and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions.”

His propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels, affirmed, “To be a socialist is to submit the ‘I’ to the ‘thou’; socialism is sacrificing the individual to the whole.”

A few years ago, the libertarian president of Future of Freedom Foundation, Jacob Hornberger, paraphrased the esteemed classical liberal economist Friedrich von Hayek: “There is no difference in principle, between the economic philosophy of Nazism, socialism, communism, and fascism and that of the American welfare state and regulated economy.”

Further, a noted expositor on the connection between the socialist NAZI Party and the socialist Democrat Party, British historian Dr. John Ray, notes: “Clearly, the idea that Hitler was a Rightist is probably the most successful BIG Lie of the 20th century. He was to the right of the Communists but that is all. Nazism was nothing more nor less than a racist form of Leftism (rather extreme Leftism at that) and to label it as ‘Rightist’ or anything else is to deny reality.”

Fact is, there is no consequential distinction between Marxist Socialism, National Socialism, or the most recent incarnation of this beast, Democratic Socialism. Indeed, Democratic Socialism, like National Socialism, is nothing more than Marxist Socialism repackaged — behind the façades, there is little ideological distinction.

The most overt manifestation of contemporary socialist Democrat “brownshirt” cadres are the rising legions of so-called “antifa movement” self-styled “anti-fascist” fascists, some of whom were rioting in Atlanta this week.

Additionally, their like-minded Marxist Black Lives Matter radicals are on the move.

But the covert political and bureaucratic elements of Democratic Socialism are far more insidious and dangerous. This would include the small but influential deep state elements within the FBI and CIA that emerged in 2016 in an effort to take down Donald Trump’s presidency.

The largest of the covert government cohorts are the “climate change” bureaucrats now infesting every federal agency, with collaborators in most state and local government agencies. Their underlying agenda has little to do with climate and everything to do with central government control of the economy.

Fact is, the Socialist Democrat Party fascists, currently under the tenuous but perilous authority of Joe Biden and his authoritarians, seek to incrementally install a centrally planned economy, and thus a society directed by a dominant-party state that controls economic production by way of taxation, regulation, and income redistribution, and public opinion by way of its mainstream media propaganda machine. The success of Democratic Socialism depends upon undermining the fundamental tenets of American Liberty — the “unalienable Rights of Man” as “endowed by their Creator” — with the notion that all such rights are granted by the state.

Leftists’ ruse to ensure political dominance in order to implement their agenda is their BIG Lie claiming that identifying who is voting constitutes “voter suppression,” a “fabricated colossal untruth” in order to nationalize their so-called “voter rights” bulk-ballot fraud strategy.

With that as a backdrop, I invite you to read the latest Democrat Party platform with an informed and critical eye. Then review the “25-point NAZI program.” Considering the political and social objectives of today’s socialist Democrats, see if you can find a “small number of elements of the platforms” that are “clearly similar.” If so, it’s past time to dispense with Godwin’s Law.
