The Real Equivalent of World War II

In this article, David Gayvert writes about the real equivalent of World War II — and I’d argue that war is the information war:

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been mocked for calling climate change “our World War II.” But America in 2019 does face a serious challenge to freedom and self-rule: radical progressivism. The progressive roots of national socialism and fascism, of course, are well-known to all but modern Democrats, who also are curiously ignorant (or pretend to be) of the rather sordid history of their party. This is why one finds so many similarities in the philosophy, goals and tactics of the Nazis and our current mob of progressive fascists.

From the stultifying political correctness promoted by academia (more and more within K-12, as well as universities), to the uber-hypocritical leftist politicians and the media who provide cover for them, to the increasingly violent modern Brown and Black Shirts (i.e. “Antifa”) and their active attempt to substitute Doublespeak for the English language, the totalitarians of today’s political left want precisely what Hitler pursued: absolute power and uncontested control of every aspect of life of those people over whom they seek to rule. This is why they project onto Donald Trump — who stands squarely and loudly against their anti-American agenda– the very evils (racist, fascist, lawless, etc.) that they embody.

It is noteworthy that the vehemence of the various attacks on the President from leftists and de-facto leftist Never-Trumpers (yes, any erstwhile conservative who proclaims that he or she will vote for any of the current crop of Democrat presidential candidates over Trump is in fact supporting radical progressivism) is inversely proportional to the evidence supporting those claims.  The current outrage over Trump’s tweets regarding the “squad” and the inefficacy of Elijah Cummings in bettering the lives of his most vulnerable constituents, is a case in point. As some commentators have noted, with his provocative tweets and commentary, Trump is succeeding in branding today’s Democrat Party as the home of far-left extremists with only the most tenuous grasp on reality.

Yet for those who rightly find ridiculous the claims of congressional starlet Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and her ilk that battling climate change is this generation’s World War II, the favourable comparison of the essential character of and challenges confronting Winston Churchill in his war years with those of Donald Trump today, may seem hyperbolic at best. Yet there indeed are grounds to argue that Donald Trump is working every day to emulate Churchill in at least this way: by exposing and repudiating the radical progressive agenda and the danger it holds for the country; he is working hard to make it intolerable to the American people.
