"As so often before, liberty has been wounded in the house of its friends. Liberty in the wild and freakish hands of fanatics has once more, as frequently in the past, proved the effective helpmate of autocracy and the twin-brother of tyranny."
by:
Otto Hermann Kahn
(1867-1934) German-born American investment banker, collector, philanthropist

    This is what has happened to Liberty in the hands of Democrats in Republicans.

    From legalizing homosexuality to promoting LGBTQ+ rights above all else.  Pointing this out is hate speech, now a crime, but screaming I hate you! F* you! is somehow not hate speech but free speech.  The gun controllers shoot GOP representatives to demonstrate that people cannot be trusted with arms.  Social media companies censor honest dialogue in the name of "community values" to guide people to proper thought.  Why is liberty always to blame for socialist ills?  Because false flags are the oldest trick in the book, and the go-to move for any political cause  make it look like the other guy did it.  It's so overplayed these days that it doesn't work as well as it used to.
