…as Dan here at UltiMAK said about this.
I’ve often said that the socialists are calling the anti-socialists socialists for not being socialist enough. Or the Communists are angry at the socialists for not being communist enough.
Christie is being called “Hitler” for trying to cut government spending. The name-caller would have more credibility if he simply called Christie a “snotty nosed poopy pants”.
There is the fact that the communists are often bitterly angry at Progressives (who believe in achieving the goals of Marx through progressive steps). The communists think the time is right to pounce– to take off the masks and have the “People’s Revolution” right now. The Progressives are still in progressive mode, so there is a real conflict, but invoking the name of a famous socialist, as an epithet, doesn’t help their case.
There is also some conflict between the National Socialists verses the global socialists (FDR, Stalin and Hitler all held the same basic tentets, but differed only on the details and the execution) but I’m no more interested in the details than in the differences between rival crime gangs. They’re all enemies and they all have to be ground into the dustbin of history if we’re going to have a free society.
ETA; You public employees around the country seem to be terrible confused. See, you’re not “The People”. You’re The Government– our servants. Big difference. Your jobs, your pay and your benifits, exist at our pleasure. It’s when you tell us what our jobs, pay and benefits etc. should be, that’s Nazi-ish. Get it?
