I don’t see a difference. Both are violent and both want to control the country and the national dialogue. Neither is interested in freedom for everybody, though they might demand freedom for themselves.

We forget that the Nazis of pre-war Germany rose in part because Germany had been battered by other countries, stripped of territory, strangled economically. But another part of the drive was as a reaction to the communistic socialists who were everywhere in Europe at that time.

Toward the end of the war, some Germans began to rise up against Hitler. They didn’t embrace freedom, ¬†however. They were communists who sought a different kind of societal slavery.

So now we have two extreme ideologies – the alt-right who feel justified in their activism by a fear of communism and the alt-left (typified by Antifa) who feel threatened by “fascists” (they don’t know what the word means) and so feel justified in their activism.

And these two groups are tearing the country apart.

So, I ask — what is the difference between these two ideologies? Both are violent in their opposition of the other and if you actually listen to what they say, they would enslave all of us to their ideologies. We wouldn’t get a choice. We’d all have to do, say and think whatever that group has decided is allowed.

We call that tyranny. And, yes, it can happen here. It is happening here.
