First they lie, exagerate, scare, mis-state, etc. their position to convert as many as possible to their side, so they have the army that will shout and shoot. Careful examination of their side will probably show they are socialists or communists, they want to tell you what to do and say.

    While the point of the quote is well made, enemies of freedom prefer to shout, shoot, promote immorality and chaos, anger and violence, and anti-rights and unlawful behavior; as well as argue. By way of example: socialists (left to right / communists to fascists, etc.) argue the best way to eliminate freedom.

    Communism is an excellent hammer which we use to destroy our enemy."
