It seems the Nazification of America is proceeding as planned. On Sunday, Paul Sperry, a former D.C. bureau chief for Investor’s Business Daily, issued a tweet claiming that Democrats are working on legislation to classify “Make America Great Again” rallies “domestic terrorist activity.” Presumably the move arises out of last Wednesday’s attack on the Capitol by a comparatively tiny fraction of the estimated million protesters who turned out in D.C. in support of Donald Trump.
Democrats are viewing the storming of the Capitol as an unprecedented act of violence despite a very clear precedent in the six months of non-stop riots following the death of George Floyd.
The Left was slow even to acknowledge the protests by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, let alone admit they were violent. In one of the most telling moments of leftist hypocrisy, a newscaster covering one of the demonstrations standing before a backdrop of a community engulfed in flame reported that the protests were “mostly peaceful.”
A broader interpretation of the plan to reclassify MAGA rallies is that Democrats are now working to criminalize dissent and political opposition. So much for the First Amendment right to freedom of assembly.
