Sen. Lindsey Graham Calls Congresswomen Targeted By Trump Anti-American 'Communists'

Source: Mediaite


By Ken Meyer Jul 15th, 2019, 9:44 am

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) cranked up the Donald Trump sycophancy by blasting the president’s Democratic enemies during his appearance on Fox & Friends Monday morning.

Graham was on to talk about how the president has been handling tensions between Iran and the United States, but Ainsley Earhardt shifted the conversation towards new polls projecting Trump would lose to several of the Democratic candidates challenging him for 2020. Graham responded that “[Trump’s] gonna win, just knock it down a notch”…and then the senator went full throttle.

“We all know [Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] and this crowd are a bunch of communists. They hate Israel, they hate our own country. They’re calling the guards along our border, Border Patrol agents concentration camp guards. They accuse people support Israel doing it for the Benjamins. They’re anti-Semitic. They’re anti-America. Don’t get down, aim higher. We don’t need to know anything about them personally. Talk about their policies.”


Putting aside Graham’s immediate double-take about making slights on political opponents, it seems obvious he was referencing Trump’s attacks on AOC and her progressive colleagues over the weekend, which have been deemed “racist” by a plethora of critics. When Brian Kilmeade asked if Trump’s tweets were negative, Graham continued his charge against the “disgusting” agenda from the president’s opponents, but he did recognize them as “American citizens duly-elected.”

1. WHOA!

Not just "socialist," but now "communist!"

Joe McCarthy is smiling up from Hell. Are we going to start communist witch hunts again? Blacklisting? Revoking citizenship? Executions like the Rosenbergs? Where do you stop this nonsense? Right here, right now!

2. I've been saying it here for awhile.

As the election draws near they will not be calling us socialists. They will jump directly to communist. It's happening. They will also say it is the Democrats that are allied with the Russian and Chinese communists. Here we go.

19. If he is calling people out as commies, how about the card-carrying Trump.

The Republican Party is a racist, criminal enterprise that must be totally destroyed before it takes turns the nation into a Fascist hell hole. Trump must be defeated. It is that simple and I object to some so-called progressives hijacking the primaries to advance their unreasonable, unattainable delusions.

37. I agree. They have been following the fascist agenda for over fifty years.

I have posted Lawrence Britt's 14 Characteristics several times on this board. Perhaps it should be reposted. Everyone of the points has been the clear agenda of the Republican Party.

Fourteen Defining
Characteristics Of Fascism
By Dr. Lawrence Britt
Source Free Inquiry.co
5-28-3


Dr. Lawrence Britt has examined the fascist regimes of Hitler (Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Franco (Spain), Suharto (Indonesia) and several Latin American regimes. Britt found 14 defining characteristics common to each:

1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism - Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays.

2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights - Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of "need." The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.

3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause - The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial , ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.

4. Supremacy of the Military - Even when there are widespread
domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized.

5. Rampant Sexism - The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more rigid. Divorce, abortion and homosexuality are suppressed and the state is represented as the ultimate guardian of the family institution.

6. Controlled Mass Media - Sometimes to media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government regulation, or sympathetic media spokespeople and executives. Censorship, especially in war time, is very common.

7. Obsession with National Security - Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.

8. Religion and Government are Intertwined - Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the government's policies or actions.

9. Corporate Power is Protected - The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite.

10. Labor Power is Suppressed - Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely, or are severely suppressed.

11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts - Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression in the arts and letters is openly attacked.

12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment - Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism. There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.

13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption - Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.

14. Fraudulent Elections - Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections.

55. Thank-you

I had seen this before, but had forgotten it. In college, I studied German and Austrian language, culture, and history. How is it possible that the countries of Mozart, Beethoven, Goethe, Schiller, and Mahler could devolve into the Nazi horror? Well it did, and so it can here.

We need to call them out and educate the silent about what is threatening us. Silence implies consent.

57. Some think that the resolution condemning Trumps racism is a waste of time. I disagree.

When I see Republicans refusing to acknowledge that Trump's flagrant unvarnished display of racism is outrageous, it bring to mind watching the huge massive displays of outright adulation of Hitler by the masses of Germans. To not condemn him is a moral failure that can lead to the same silence as German watched the Jews that they had lived side-by-side for years hauled off like vermin to be exterminated. The Republican propaganda machine is spewing the same propaganda and have convinced millions of our fellow citizens that Democrats are unpatriotic, immoral leaches that must be defeated at any cost. This is not hyperbole but actual fact displayed by hundreds with the approval of his adoring crowds at rallies that mimic those held by the German Nazis. He has embolden the dregs of society to openly display their racism. I wonder if the Brown Shits will soon emerge with his approval to incite violence. Are the so-called Proud Boys the forerunner?

25. Meanwhile...

Joseph Goebbels, Jr, aka Stephen Miller, has quite successfully deflected attention from the concentration camps to something less ludicrous.

Looking at the asshole's actions, it is becoming painfully clear that the book he kept (keeps?) on his nightstand is really not just a book, rather I seriously believe he fashions himself the actual author of it. Everything he's done has a parallel in the book. He's trying to relive the Third Reich through himself and the demented belief that he IS der Fuhrer!

And the Republicans to a man (and occasional woman) know this is their only chance to gain total control of this country for their corporate masters and the Master of those corporate masters, Vlad, while hoping to curry favor to stay in control of their own pathetic lives.

They've been promised the world just as the "just following orders" ICE traitors. BTW, we need the names of all those, and I mean ALL THOSE who are involved in ICE for the 21st century Nuremberg Trials yet to certainly come. They and ANY who aided and abetted this regime need to be held totally accountable and not forgiven nor exonerated because they were "just following orders" (are you listening, Nancy?) There is no one who doesn't know what they have been doing is wrong and a disgrace to America.

It's no longer ok to say,"Let's move on and put this all behind us." We tried that and go this.

Graham declines to condemn racist Trump tweets and calls Democratic congresswomen 'a bunch of communists'
Devan Cole byline

By Devan Cole, CNN

Updated 11:52 AM ET, Mon July 15, 2019


Washington (CNN)Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, one of President Donald Trump's strongest allies on Capitol Hill, declined on Monday to condemn the President over his racist tweets against several minority members of Congress, instead calling them a "bunch of communists."

Graham's comments, which were later tweeted out by Trump, are the latest example of congressional Republican alignment with Trump in the face of fierce controversy.

"Well, we all know that (New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) and this crowd are a bunch of communists, they hate Israel, they hate our own country," Graham said during an appearance on "Fox and Friends." "They're calling the guards along our border, the border patrol agents, 'concentration camp guards.' They accuse people who support Israel of doing it for the Benjamins. They're anti-Semitic. They're anti-America."

Asked by co-host Steve Doocy if he thinks Trump "went too far" with his comments, Graham, who represents South Carolina, said the President should "aim higher" than the personalities of the congresswomen and instead talk about their policies.

"You don't need to -- they are American citizens. They won an election. Take on their policies," he said.
Graham added that if the group of lawmakers are made "the face of the future" of their party, "You will destroy the Democratic Party."
Shortly after Graham made the comments, Trump shared them in a tweet, writing, "Need I say more?" ......................................
