Who's a Bigot, a Racist or a Fascist?

Those words are bandied about willy-nilly by mostly liberals (a/k/a Progressives) generally describing their political opponents. First off, what is the definition of a bigot? It is defined as: “A person who has strong, unreasonable ideas, esp. about race or religion, and who thinks anyone who does not have the same beliefs is wrong”. That same definition can be used for the terms racist and Fascist as well.

So, if you disagree with another person or express a negative opinion of another person or group, you become a prime target for being called a “bigot”, a “racist”, or a “Fascist”, especially if you are a Republican or a Conservative. That term “bigot”, along with the term “racist” and “Fascist”, are being used by liberals to alter the dialogue when a clash of ideas and opinions are being debated. That is the “modus operandi” of the far-left today, when they can't argue the facts, and are unable to back up their positions on the issues, especially when the debate is about race or religion. Even today, with no proof whatsoever, President Trump is called a “racist”, a “bigot”, or a ”Fascist” by the liberal left on a regular basis. Their hatred knows no bounds. Even some loony Democrats, like Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Ca.), are calling for Pres. Trump's impeachment, just because they don't like him personally and that he is president, and he is not a Democrat. I guess you could say there are no fools like old fools, and those Democrats fit that description.

One of the biggest practitioners of this labeling was none other than our former “Liar in Chief”, Barack Hussein Obama. In his many comments about race and religion during his 8 years in office, he blamed others, mostly Republicans or Conservatives, of engaging in hate speech because they protested the actions of certain groups relating to race and religion. It seemed, no matter what the situation was, when it came to race or religion, he always took the side of the blacks (or other minorities) and the Muslims (to the exclusion of all other religions). Pres. Obama was supposed to be a “uniter” not a “divider” when he first ran for office. Well, how did that work out? We are now more divided, as a nation than ever before, thanks to the policies and rhetoric of Pres. Obama, and racial “bomb throwers” like Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and the Congressional Black Caucus.

The designation of the terms “bigot”, “racist” and “Fascist”, are becoming so hackneyed that it is like the boy who cried “wolf” too often, in that, after a while, he wasn't taken seriously when a true dire situation arose. Those over-used words are used to end all conversations about race and religion as many people are shut down and shut up as they they don't want to be labeled with those highly emotional terms, in that regard the far-left has been very successful in their mission. The term “political correctness” has been popularized as a result of this concerted effort to stifle “free speech”.

Look at what former Attorney General Loretta Lynch proclaimed after the San Bernardino shootings had occurred, and the attackers were identified as Muslim terrorists. She said that the U.S. Justice Department would “take action” when anti-Islamic speech “edges towards violence when we see the potential to lift....that mantle of anti-Muslim rhetoric”. Was she, and other bureaucrats, going to be the arbiters of what was or is not inflammatory speech? Did she not believe in the 1st Amendment? Where is the outrage today when these terms are used indiscriminately against others? Especially their political opponents.

After the 9/11 terror attacks by militant, terrorist Muslims, there was no wide-scale violence against Muslims, even though the terrorists were all Muslims. The most recent government statistics show that antisemitism is a far bigger problem than anti-Islamic bias in this country. The statistics show that 60% of biased acts reported were perpetrated against Jews, and only 13% targeted Muslims. So why did Pres. Obama and the Democrats keep up the drumbeat about Islamophobia when there was little of any widespread animosity and hateful actions against Muslims? Did they have an agenda?

People are fearful, and rightly so, about the lives of their families and neighbors who are potential victims of these ruthless, demented, and fanatical terrorists, who most often happen to be Muslims. Yes, most Muslims are not terrorists, but most terrorists are Muslim and we shouldn't be called “bigots”, “racists”, or “Fascists” in expressing our concerns that the San Bernardino massacre, the shooting in the Orlando nightclub, and the mowing down, by a truck, of innocent civilians in lower Manhattan, for pointing out who were the perpetrators of these terrorist acts. These will not be the only Muslim terrorist attacks against our citizens and our country in the future. The terrorists have said so, over and over again, and we would be fools if we didn't take their threats to heart. Should we be labeled a “bigot”, a “racist” or a “Fascist” for pointing that out? Hitler laid out his plans in his book “Mein Kampf”, but the free world sloughed off his boastings as the rants of a fool, and look what happened, World War 11. These militant Islamic terrorists have stated that they want the world to be a universal Caliphate, with them in control by using Sharia law. It's stated in the Koran. Should we be sheep being led to slaughter because we might be called a “bigot”, a “racist”, or a “Fascist”? Only a fool would settle for that scenario. Speak up America, and don't let “political correctness” keep us from telling the truth. Our lives and our country are at stake. Speak up ! Support the policies of President Trump as he tries to institute policies that will make us safer from future terrorist attacks. And, don't let partisan animosity toward our president, deter us from instituting practical solutions regarding this problem.

Who are the people who continually try to shut down free speech, ala the "Brownshirts" of Adolph Hitler? Would it be the same people who call others bigots, racists, and Fascists? Who shouts down speakers at universities and colleges? Who riot and cause mayhem whenever a conservative tries to speak? Who are constantly maligning the police when they try to keep the peace in crime-ridden neighborhoods?? Who makes fun of people of faith because they want to keep our country safe and want to salute the flag and sing our national anthem? Would it be those same people who preach tolerance but exhibit intolerance against those who disagree with them? You know by now that I am referring to the hypocrites who call themselves Liberals and Progressives. SHAME, SHAME, SHAME on them.
