A colloquial term used to describe people who stir up trouble, whether because of a legitimate grievance or simply because they are trolling. Specifically this term is used when someone posts a single item that plays to peoples passions so much that in its wake a massive discussion occurs, and controversy can still linger years later.
We all have some so called liberal friends who constantly post on facebook from their favorite leftist propaganda sites, The Daily KOS, Thinkprogress,Beer Party etc etc etc. Of course they ignore the fact that these post also appear on their friends timelines. Today is no different than any other. Today I got online to a series of them.
This is not the first time that I have seen revisionist history from these leftist. They all seem very light on real history and chuck full of progressive revisionist history. I have another friend that posted Thom Hartman’s revisionist version of the Boston Tea party, more on that later. Of course this leftist post was in reference to the riots taking place in Baltimore. But in the same vein if you call the looters and rioters “Thugs” these leftist will invoke their revisionist dictionary and claim that Thug is the new “N” word.
To start with let’s look at their revisionist definition of fascism.
And their revisionist version of the TEA Party
On the first video you see they conveniently redefine fascism claiming that it is the corporate takeover of industry when it is in fact the opposite. It is the government takeover of industry through taxation and regulation. No one in their right mind would argue that corporations controlled Benito Mussolini or Adoph Hitler. They both took power engaging in the same “class warfare” and “Race Baiting” as their fascist predecessors. If you attempted to follow leftist logic you would find yourself running in circles.
But then the Fascist movement was the blending of Syndicalism and Nationalism just like the progressive movement as I have written about earlier. But on to the revisionist history of the Boston TEA Party. While it is true that they dumped the tea of the East India Tea company, he ignores what led up to that act. Namely the Stamp Act, the Townshend acts. All of these acts of taxation were only imposed on the colonist and not on those in England. This caused the colonist to become creative and smuggle the goods from other sources. The British responded by repealing the tax but only if you bought from British companies. This ignores the fact that even though they were considered British subjects they had no representation in parliament which brought out the rallying cry “no taxation without representation.
And on that note here’s another of his posts from the same day.
Of course the so called liberals are all for silencing the likes of the Koch brothers. They don’t believe that those who’s pockets they intend to pick in order to continue their bribes should have a voice in politics.
Liberals often deplore efforts to amend the Constitution, particularly the Bill of Rights and especially when the outcome would narrow individual liberties. Well, now we know they don’t really mean it.
Forty-six Senate Democrats have concluded that the First Amendment is an impediment to re-election that a little tinkering can cure. They are proposing a constitutional amendment that would give Congress and state legislatures the authority to regulate the degree to which citizens can devote their resources to advocating the election or defeat of candidates.
They claim that the likes of the Koch Brothers are buying elections. I have not received any money from them. Have you? On the other hand the so called progressives promise more and more free goodies to those who would vote for them. Now that’s what I would call buying elections. Of course when the Koch brothers donate to a hospital the lefties protest. When the Koch’s donate to the United Negro College fund the leftist’s heads explode. But then the only thing the Koch Brothers are guilty of is believing in the “Classic Liberalism” of the founders. They’re libertarians who believe in “free markets” and free people. Not crony capitalism aka fascism.
Now the leftist bribes are obvious.
But Hey, let’s not let a little thing like facts get in the way. The path down the road to Fascism started with the first progressive era.
So ask yourself the question. Which forms of governments engage in race baiting and class warfare in order to gain power, and how did that turn out.
To my liberal friends, yes as long as your propaganda posts appear on my wall, and as long as you spew your propaganda. I will continue throwing those bombs.
