America’s Stalinist Universities

Thomas DiLorenzo
Lew Rockwell

February 24, 2021

In a recent article on LewRockwell.com entitled “Imposing the Steal: America’s Great Struggle Session,” Vasko Kohlmaher explained how a tool of twentieth-century totalitarians was “public humiliation and torment” of those with “wrong thinking.”  The targeted individuals were compelled to confess their wrongdoing, apologize to society, and repent for the error of their thinking.

The reason for this is that “To totalitarians truth is as the cross is to the devil.”  Totalitarians “force their victims to give up that which is true and accept that which is false.” As F.A. Hayek wrote in the Road to Serfdom, in totalitarian societies “truth” is not discovered by research, education, discussion and debate, and the scientific method, but is merely announced by the authorities.

10 Crazy Examples of Unrelated Waste and Partisan Kick-Backs in New ‘COVID’ Bill

President Biden has proposed $1.9 trillion in additional COVID-19 spending. He’s asking Congress to authorize another round of checks, more expanded unemployment benefits, a $15 minimum wage, and much, much more. Over the weekend, House Democrats finally released the text of the 600-page bill meant to make Biden’s broad COVID proposals a legislative reality. 

Critics and economists have already attacked the proposal on the merits of its main provisions and staggering overall cost, arguing it would break the budgetincentivize unemployment, and fail to stimulate the economy. However, there’s a much simpler objection to this legislative bonanza: it’s full of unrelated pork and political priorities.

Southern Lawmakers in Multiple States Tell Leftists They’re Not Putting Up with Anti-Americanism

According to a Tuesday Op-Ed in The New York Times, many French “politicians and prominent intellectuals” believe that America’s new woke culture has gone too far and now poses an existential threat to the French republic and identity.

Specifically, they are concerned about the dangerous social theories on “race, gender and post-colonialism”, which they view as forms of separatism.

Where Did All The Lincoln Project’s Money Go?

The Lincoln Project has had a rough couple of weeks.  One of its co-founders, John Weaver, was accused of sexual harassment of young men and the Project attacked him as a sexual predator. As co-founders like George Conway denied any real familiarity or interaction with Weaver, others accused of the Project of turning a blind eye to his conduct.  Then one of its other co-founders, Jennifer Horn, resigned in protest only to be attacked by other Project members as allegedly trying to get more money out of the organization.

“Ah, what an age it is
When to speak of trees is almost a crime
For it is a kind of silence against injustice.”
–Bertolt Brecht (1898-1956)

In my professional life, I had specialized in the study of totalitarian Marxist-Leninist states wherein citizens were denied fundamental freedoms of speech, publication, assembly and religion. I never thought or even dreamt that the United States of America could devolve into that, but that is exactly what is happening in this former bastion of liberty.

For years now, the Left relentlessly had succeeded in warping American schools, universities, journalism, social media, Hollywood, and culture. Now, in the name of the COVID-19 pandemic, Americans are quarantined and locked down in their homes, barred from attending church services, and mandated to cover their faces with masks or they would be denied admission into grocery stores to purchase the food to feed themselves and their families.

The pending military stand-down to address “extremism in the ranks” may bring results that go beyond what Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin expected to achieve, according to active duty service members who are scheduled to attend the mandatory sessions.

Austin on Friday ordered all uniformed and civilian leaders in the Defense Department to set aside a day soon to discuss “impermissible behaviors” related to extremism.

The far-left political action group American Bridge, which spent roughly $62 million in attacks ads against President Donald Trump and other Republican candidates in the 2020 election cycle, are launching efforts targeting the midterm elections and defending the Biden agenda.

The Super PAC plans to spend at least $100 million to maintain Democrat majorities in both the US House and the US Senate through the midterms.

The co-chair triad leading the organization are well-known in far left circles. The Super PAC’s hierarchy seats former Montana governor Steve Bullock, former Democrat National Committee chair Tom Perez, and former Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards as co-chairs.

Young Not Stupid: Newsom’s Recall Election Is Almost Certain, Here’s What Happens Next

Californians have had enough of Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom, and they might be ready to throw him out of the office for good.

The group Rescue California, which is in charge of the Recall Newsom petition, announced it is less than one hundred thousand signatures away from hitting the 1.5 million signature threshold needed to trigger a recall election. Organizers are currently aiming for three hundred thousand more as insurance for invalid signatures.

So how do recall elections work, and who funded this once impossible effort?

WATCH: MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace Suggests Killing Conservative Americans with drone strikes

Support of America’s 45th President may soon be “domestic terrorism”

There is a campaign emerging in Washington DC and within the leftist circles to label Trump supporters and critics of the corrupt 2020 presidential election fraud as domestic terrorists, which could potentially justify using military tactics against such political enemies, akin to how alleged foreign “terrorists” were taken out by drone strikes during the George W. Bush and Obama administrations’ “war on terror” abroad. MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace suggests as much in a recent remark on that network.

But this isn’t simply the ramblings of yet another cable news talking head. As the Democrat Congress was debating to strip Republican Marjorie Taylor Greene of her committee positions, the Washington Post reports on a serious debate in Congress over probable legislation that will formalize a US government declaration of war on Trump supporters:

More than a decade after the fall of the former Soviet Union and the Eastern European communist regimes, the international communist movement has been spurned worldwide. The demise of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is only a matter of time.
