The evil madness that drives all leftwing totalitarians — Nazi Germany, Communist China, Stalin’s Soviet Union, Pol Pot’s Cambodia’s Marxist-Leninist movement, etc., is remarkably unchanged in today’s Democrats. The Left has been trying to shut down all dissent for years. Now it has moved to openly calling for public shaming and violence. How far behind can gulags be?
Intellectually, the activists of the Left are the most docile conformists. They have accepted as dogma all the philosophical beliefs of their elders for generations: the notions that emotions and feeling are superior to reason……. Far from being rebels, they embody the philosophic trend of the past 200 years (or longer).
A new website will post a list of nearly 100 such local businesses — along with “tips for how to get those specific businesses closed down,” the station said.
Trump donors and their businesses face fresh wave of boycotts, public shaming
By: Andrew O’Reilly, Fox News, September 7, 2019:
The 2020 presidential election is already getting nasty — and not just for the candidates.
The mud-slinging and smear campaigns also are being directed at supporters and donors, namely those with the temerity to back President Trump. They’re facing a revived effort by Trump critics to name and shame them, with the apparent goal of hurting their businesses.
In one of the latest examples, a Facebook post on a page called simply “Ban Kenny Chesney from Pittsburgh” threatened to make public a list of almost 100 local businesses in the Pennsylvania city that are owned by Trump supporters. While the page has since been taken down, a new website has been promised that will include “a database of Trump supporter-owned businesses in the Pittsburgh area, as well as tips for how to get those specific businesses closed down,” according to local media.
“They want to cost people their livelihoods just because you don’t agree with them politically,” Sam DeMarco, Allegheny County councilman and chairman of the county’s Republican Party, told the local CBS affiliate. “It’s not just absurd, but I believe it’s dangerous.”
DeMarco continued, “People who they just don’t agree with, they want to take and punish. I absolutely believe this is a fascist behavior, and I totally reject it.”
A similar social media-driven boycott was directed at one of Connecticut’s most popular pizza parlors.
Facebook user Lorna Steele posted a message last month asking her followers to join her “in no longer funding his hate,” referring to Frank Pepe Pizzeria and co-owner Gary Bimonte, a Trump supporter. She posted her message alongside a picture of Bimonte holding a “Deplorables for Trump” sign and a message he posted thanking the president for the American steel piping being used in construction jobs.
Steele’s post stirred a fierce debate among Facebook users, with some pledging to stop frequenting the famous pizza establishment and others arguing it is unfair to boycott individual businesses just because of their owners’ political beliefs.
“If we start boycotting individuals for their political views it’s just as bad as a pharmacist who won’t give contraception because of their ‘principles,’” one Facebook commenter said, according to the Wilton Bulletin.
The push to shame Trump supporters burst into the headlines last month when Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, brother of presidential candidate Julian Castro, tweeted out a list of Trump donors and their employers.
