Greens Senator Scott Ludlum published the following article on his Medium blog today, titled “Fascism in larval form: Australia and the US in the age of Trump.” I encourage you to read the entire article but you will not be surprised to find that it is a Leftist diatribe by a dedicated parliamentary representative of Australia’s most Left-wing political party holding any electoral seats in the country and is firmly in the Socialist camp. Here is the article link:
I could not resist commenting on this phenomenon of the spread of TDS to Down Under!
“The gnashing of teeth re Donald Trump is enormously disingenuous & pundits must really believe that the informed public have no memory & are morons. We have just emerged from 8yrs of a dismal Presidency under Obama wherein allies were abandoned & enemies feted.
Where were Progressive voices when Obama supported the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt in the face of its published Jihadist manifesto and its history of having spawned enemies like al Qaeda, Boko Haram, ISIS & dozens of other radical Islamic terrorist organisations? Where were Progressive voices when Obama participated in destroying Libya, when the State Department illegally supplied arms to the very Syrian rebels who became ISIS & its affiliates, when Obama directed the IRS to discriminate & hound conservative taxpayers, when the Obama Admin lied barefaced to the public re Benghazi & that notorious but irrelevant video, when Hillary Clinton revealed herself to be a pathological liar re her private email server & the destruction of State owned documents by the tens of thousands, when Obama betrayed the only democracy in the Middle East in favour of the duplicitous Palestinians whose desire to possess all of Israel & annihilate the Jews is plainly printed in the charters of Hamas & Fatah, when Obama lied to a National audience on the occasion of his first official visit to a Mosque in 2016, saying that Islam comes from the Arabic word for peace when he knows as a student in an Islamic school in Indonesia until age 14yrs that Islam comes from the Arabic word for submission, not peace, or when Obama swore in Congressman Keith Ellison on Jefferson’s famous Qur’an saying that Jefferson greatly admired Islam when reality is that Jefferson bought his Qur’an on his return from meeting with the Pasha of Tripoli in London where he and John Adams were witness to the Pasha reading from the sacred Islamic text that all Muslims were mandated to convert, kill or enslave non-believers.
Jefferson obtained the Qur’an to determine the nature of an enemy that in 1798 was extorting 10% of the new American Nation’s GDP in return for repatriating pirated and abducted American crews. As a result of what he learned, Jefferson declared war on Tripoli & the Barbary Pirates and sent the fledgling U.S. Navy on its first overseas military mission where it waged a 5yr war, ending in a treaty.
And where were the Progressive voices when the Clinton Foundation raked in 3 billion dollars in a massive pay to play scam and the Clintons were charging obscene speaking fees & funneling the money to Hillary’s war-purse?
I could fill a book with scandals & disgraceful conduct of the Obama Administration that cannot possibly be matched in the first 40days of Trump! Currently, Trump has commenced implementation of the greatest number of campaign promises of any former President and has selected a serious, credentialed cabinet picked for their experience, success in achieving their goals and toughness.
I have no doubt that the Left despise Trump & his team, as they must, because the agenda of the Left, having failed to win hearts & minds by either force or any record of successful governance, must continue to focus on division, identity politics, discord, racialism & interminable virtue signalling from the massive cohort of brainwashed graduates of left dominated faculties in Universities throughout the Union who call themselves Social Justice Warriors and everyone else, racists, bigots, Islamophobes, homophobes and most stupid of all, NAZIS! (who were of course socialists, not fascists……it’s in their name liberals!). Until you balance your anti-Trump bias with an honest critique of his rivals, your efforts will be seen as self-serving and merely leftist propaganda.”
