Meryl Streep, in a fiery speech criticizing President Trump on Saturday night, pledged to stand up against “brownshirts and bots” at a time when she and others are increasingly denouncing his administration’s policies and the president himself.........“It’s terrifying to put the target on your forehead, and it sets you up for all sorts of attacks and armies of brownshirts and bots and worse, and the only way you can do it is to feel you have to,” Ms. Streep said. “You have to. You don’t have an option. You have to.”
It was not immediately clear to whom Ms. Streep was referring in using the loaded term “brownshirts,” which was originally applied to a paramilitary group that assisted the rise of Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany.......To Read More.....
My Take - Meryl, you're amazing! First off....it appears Hollywood has no end of awards they can give themselves and no limit to their level of stupidity. Also, brownshirts were fascist Nazi thugs who rioted, beat innocent people who disagreed with them and they were......and pay attention now Meryl.....they were socialists.
Fascists are the right wing of the socialist movement and communism is the left wing, but they're two sides of the same coin. And in America the Democrat party is at one with the socialist parties. And what do they do when they don't get their way? They riot! And who're doing the rioting in this nation? Leftists, Democrats, stupid university students, much of it planned and supported by people like Soros.....all socialists. Wow! That sounds like the Nazi brownshirts to me. What does that sound like to you?
Perhaps you refer to those who've criticized you so strongly. Well, I thought you understood freedom of speech. You practiced it in public and now you don't like it back. You abandoned your role as an entertainer and entered the political arena, willingly, and that's a bull fight....get over it.
All socialist's thoughts, policies, actions and schemes are antithetical to personal freedom. Unless you consider murdering your unborn baby, execution of the elderly they call suicide, sex with no boundaries, including with children, and the right to be supported by the government if you decide not to work, and the right to ignore any law you don't like......without consequences.
You says, “It isn’t helpful to make it us versus them,” but isn't that what you...and your Hollywood friends are doing? Yes, freedom is fragile, and the left has shown just how fragile that is. Fixing leftist insanities isn't damaging freedom - it's guaranteeing it.
So Meryl.....let's get back to the basics.......just who are these brownshirts you're talking about? I want examples of their brownshirt thuggery and violence. Name people, places and events. Here, let me help you get started:
- Presidents Chavez and Nicolás Maduro
- That country is literally dying as a result of he and his incompetent, corrupt brownshirts, thugs and theives.
