Progressives Shout Down Opposition; What Else Is New?

By | July 2, 2021 | 0 Comments

Ohio Legislature passes bill banning biological males from girls’ and women’s sports. But female legislator interrupted by boos, hooting, and banging on desks. Shouting down opponents is incompatible with free debate. But it is characteristic of totalitarians like Nazis and Communists.

Perhaps the classical example was when Fascist Italy under Mussolini invaded Ethiopia. Mussolini’s son, who fancied himself a poet, wrote a poem about how the mustard gas bombs the planes dropped looked like yellow flowers when they burst.

The Emperor of Ethiopia, Haile Selassie, an extremely dignified man, went to the League of Nations and appealed unsuccessfully for help. But Italian newsmen hooted, shouted, banged their fists, and drowned him out. We took this as a frightening example of fascism. But Democrats apparently take it as a role model to be emulated. How sad. But how revealing.

Compare the two videos. Then tell me we have nothing to worry about.
