WSJ op-ed makes the ‘obvious’ case for why Donald Trump and his followers are the real antifascists

With the corporate media firmly in their corner, the progressive left has turned politics in America on its head with their success in controlling the narrative, creating an environment where assigned labels and extreme rhetoric often reflect the exact opposite of reality.

Nowhere is that more apparent than with Antifa, a domestic terrorist group that is often seen as the enforcement arm of the Democratic Party. The name is a representation of the violent group’s alleged antifascist purpose, even though they employ militant, authoritarian tactics to silence all opposition.

All of which comes into play when considering President Joe Biden’s midterm electioneering tactic of calling Republicans “semi-fascist.” As Biden tries to revive his 2020 campaign talking points about “saving the soul of the nation,” a Wall Street Journal op-ed shared by Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume explains that former President Donald Trump and his “MAGA Republicans” are the true anti-fascists.

“Mr. Trump and his fol­low­ers, be­lieve it or not, are es­sen­tially an­tifas­cists: They want the state to stand aside, to im­pose the least pos­si­ble in­ter­fer­ence and al­low mar­ket forces and en­trepreneurial en­ergies to work,” wrote Lance Morrow.

“If there are fascists in America these days, they are apt to be found among the tribes of the left,” Morrow said. “They are Mr. Biden and his people (including the lion’s share of the media), whose opinions have, since Jan. 6, 2021, hardened into absolute faith that any party or political belief system except their own is illegitimate—impermissible, inhuman, monstrous and (a nice touch) a threat to democracy.

“The evolution of their overprivileged emotions—their sentimentality gone fanatic—has led them, in 2022, to embrace Mussolini’s formula: ‘All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state.’ Or against the party. (People forget, if they ever knew it, that both Hitler and Mussolini began as socialists),” he continued. “The state and the Democratic Party must speak and act as one, suppressing all dissent. America must conform to the orthodoxy—to the Chinese finger traps of diversity-or-else and open borders—and rejoice in mandatory drag shows and all such theater of ‘gender.’ Meantime, their man in the White House invokes emergency powers to forgive student debt and their thinkers wonder whether the Constitution and the separation of powers are all they’re cracked up to be.”

Then again, that may be a little too much honesty in the Twilight Zone we live in today, a dimension “not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination.”

For six years now, uninformed lemmings on the left have been told by the media that Donald Trump is the equivalent of Hitler and there’s no turning back now even if reality tells a very different story. That will be for future historians to sort out.
