Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Is Antifa Winning? Possibly!

 

As I have discussed, the real goal of the supposed “Anti-Fascists” known as “Antifa” is to stop all speech except their own, by using the word “hate” to describe anyone who disagrees with them. Of course, it is proven that they are the actual fascists by their actions.

A new poll just out appears to show that stopping freedom of speech is exactly what is happening. From the Washington Times:

66% Of Americans Now Fear Speaking Their Minds In A Politically Correct Nation: Poll

Is the nation switching from the land of the free and the home of the brave — to the land of the silent, and the home of the reluctant? Citizens are wary of speaking their minds, a new poll suggests. Many Americans are opting to stay quiet in an intensified culture of political correctness fostered by activism and often biased media coverage.

“Few Americans think they have true freedom of speech today and think the country is too politically correct,” reports a new Rasmussen Reports survey.

It reveals that just 28 percent of Americans believe that they have think Americans “have true freedom of speech today.”

A hefty majority — 66 percent — believe that they must “be careful not to say something politically incorrect to avoid getting in trouble.”

This is incredibly frightening. We have true freedom of speech in America, yet we are becoming afraid to use our Rights because of bullying from the Left. Click the link to read the rest of the story, and you can go see the poll on Rasmussen, too.

Thank you Ricochet for giving us a place where 100% of us are unafraid to be “Politically Incorrect” to the max!

    You support Prop 8 which wins in California. A judge overturns it and a prominent tech guy loses his job. Many people say why bother since the system is rigged. My consolation is that the Left may be overreaching and proving the point about liberal fascism.

    Call me stubborn, bullheaded, or naive, but I refuse to concede. The fight continues; don’t conflate the outcome of any individual battle with what will be the ultimate outcome of the war. There is a lesson to learn in every loss we survive; learn it. Then, move forward better prepared for the next battle.

    They will have won when that percentage agrees with them. Maybe we should fight back a little since two thirds are at least willing to admit that they are being intimidated. Crushing these fascists should be popular.

    It’s real. I worry about my daughter. She got a Criminal Justice degree and works in the Attorney General’s office… but she lives in Austin, the San Francisco of the south. I might want to be more careful with my words around her, being a government worker and all.

    So how many of us are using Riconyms instead of real names because we don’t want to deal with the consequences of our employers finding our activities on Ricochet ?

    The Global Warming supporters use ” deniers ” to shut down free speech in the same way as the use hate .

    I’m fortunate that I’m old enough that it probably won’t make any difference what people think about me. If I was 30 years younger, I might be more careful about my identity.

    Definitely me. My ex-boss was a proud Hillary supporter, and it was while working for him that I chose my Riconym.

    Yeah, I’m so old I don’t even have influence over my family members. Nobody cares what I think or say.

    I am considering leaving Ricochet out of the fear that the Pseudonyms will eventually be compromised. Once the SJW or government get them this place is toast. The people will be doxed and employment may become problematic. Google showed the world that companies will bow to the Left and fire any the Left do not approve no matter how low.

    It’s not just employers, it’s also customers, end users, and suppliers.

    Throw in those too who just like to malevolently “out” others, scammers, and other riff raff.

    These antifa guys need a beat down. They take a couple/three beatings, we’ll know by who still shows up who the hardcases are.

    My buddy that came up with the Trump Thumper opined that reputable dojos and martial arts schools/academies should start advertising for “practical application nights” and bussing guys in to attend the rallies. Idea keeps sounding better and better.

    I’ve really started to believe that beat-downs are the only answer to Antifa. I was hoping the cops were going to do their jobs, and they have, in some places. In other towns, however, cops don’t seem to mind standing down, whether under orders or not. If the cops allow Antifa to attack non-violent people, it will embolden them to do it again and again.

    Putting a few of them in the hospital each time they try it will dampen their desire. I hate violence, but sometimes it is the only answer.

    If you do change your name, you might want to change your picture, too. You two would be hard to miss at the company picnic. :)

    Probably so. :) I haven’t decided if I will or not. Regardless of my political beliefs, I’m incredibly employable and I like to think that my conservative manager would raise nine kinds of hell if anyone tried to get me fired.

    Yeah, I understand, but I just don’t trust Leftists any more. The #DNCLeaks proved that they are just as evil and backstabbing as I always believed, and I won’t put my career on the line for one of them. I’m very employable too – most right-wingers are, you know – but I don’t want to start over at my age.

    Man, we definitely agree on that. I feel the same way about people who think it’s a good idea to take a swing at a cop. Everything that happens after that is exactly what they deserve.

    I actually take the poll results to be good news in the sense that Americans understand what is going on and are not oblivious. This means that they are more likely to support someone who makes an issue of this.

    All my life I keep hearing about Leftist over reach and how there will be a backlash. I have not seen it yet. All that happens is the Left keeps turning up the pressure until the Right folds and the Lefts starts again anew.

    But your boss answers to others and in the end will do what is best for him and not you.
