Ahhh, reminded me of this:

Operation CHAOS
Operation CHAOS or Operation MHCHAOS was the code name for an American domestic espionage project conducted by the Central Intelligence Agency. A department within the CIA was established in 1967 on orders from President of the United States Lyndon B. Johnson and later expanded under President Richard Nixon. The operation was launched under Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) Richard Helms, by chief of counter-intelligence, James Jesus Angleton, and headed by Richard Ober. The program's goal was to unmask possible foreign influences on the student antiwar movement.[1][2] The "MH" designation is to signify the program had a worldwide area of operations.[3]

he CIA began domestic recruiting operations in 1959 in the process of finding Cuban exiles they could use in the campaign against communist Cuba and Fidel Castro. As these operations expanded, the CIA formed a Domestic Operations Division in 1964. In 1965, President Lyndon Johnson requested that the CIA begin its own investigation into domestic dissent—independent of the FBI's ongoing COINTELPRO.[4]

The CIA developed numerous operations targeting domestic dissent, many operating under the CIA's Office of Security. These included:[2]

HTLINGUAL - Directed at letters passing between the United States and the then Soviet Union, the program involved the examination of correspondence to and from individuals or organizations placed on a watchlist.
Project 2 - Directed at infiltration of foreign intelligence targets by agents posing as dissident sympathizers and which, like CHAOS, had placed agents within domestic radical organizations for the purposes of training and establishment of dissident credentials.
Project MERRIMAC - Designed to infiltrate domestic antiwar and radical organizations thought to pose a threat to security of CIA property and personnel.
Project RESISTANCE - Worked with college administrators, campus security and local police to identify anti-war activists and political dissidents without any infiltration taking place
Domestic Contact Service - Focused on collecting foreign intelligence from willing Americans.

And what about this:

New law to 'manage' 8 million 'volunteers'

And of course this:

COINTELPRO (a portmanteau derived from COunter INTELligence PROgram) was a series of covert, and at times illegal,[1][2] projects conducted by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) aimed at surveilling, infiltrating, discrediting and disrupting domestic political organizations.[3]

FBI records show that COINTELPRO resources targeted groups and individuals that the FBI deemed subversive,[4] including anti-Vietnam War organizers, activists of the Civil Rights Movement or Black Power movement (e.g., Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Black Panther Party), feminist organizations, anti-colonial movements (such as Puerto Rican independence groups like the Young Lords), and a variety of organizations that were part of the broader New Left.

FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover issued directives governing COINTELPRO, ordering FBI agents to "expose, disrupt, misdirect, discredit, neutralize or otherwise eliminate" the activities of these movements and especially their leaders.[5][6] Under Hoover, the agent in charge of COINTELPRO was William C. Sullivan.[7] Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy personally authorized some of these programs.[8] Although Kennedy only gave written approval for limited wiretapping of King's phones "on a trial basis, for a month or so",[9] Hoover extended the clearance so his men were "unshackled" to look for evidence in any areas of King's life they deemed worthy.[10] well experienced in targeting America.

Operation paperclip bought to America Nazism cloaked in Old Glory. The west may have won the war but the bloodlines won the battle - exporting all the technology and social manipulation techniques across the Atlantic to the shores of the land of the free, home of the brave.

The brownshirts were Goebbels' strong-arm propaganda weapon that were used to intimidate citizens, sow confusion and push a meme that anyone not aligned with them is indeed the enemy. The only difference between the brownshirts of yesteryear & todays extreme left BLM and political rally-retards is the clothes - Hitler made them wear uniforms, other than that, you could transport either movement to either time period and no-one would tell the difference.

This election has shown me that there is a very small, yet well-funded movement with access to powerful corporations and media outlets whose M.O is to intimidate citizens, sow confusion and push a meme that anyone not aligned with them is indeed the enemy. Then there is a second group, constituting the lions share of the population who are pushing back against the first group, exposing their lies and winning........because they have learned from the past and can see what the TV's and Team Hillary are doing, and this is simply unacceptable to a modern and free society, time for the dinosaurs shafting the planet to be removed from society for good.

I have nothing more to add. You worded it beautifully in better ways than I ever could. Im glad to have your feedback.

I wonder if this is just striking back due to all the allegations and lawsuits of inequality and sexual harassment and as usual taking a blame liberals aka "feminists" stance in this case with double speak.

I'm not a betting man, but the odds say yes.

Do not confuse PROGRESSIVES with communism or unlimited socialism. Progressives allow for pragmatism. We are not committed to any one ideal other than being free. This can mean FREE food. It can mean taxes that are not confiscatory.
It's an approach to social questions which can be dealt with, not
I do not compare right-wingers against left-wingers.
They are all of a sort. Name associations are the first form of prejudice.
Individualism and Socialism need to be cohabitants of this limited world and the self-assurity of differing political ideologies is not conducive to polite exchanges. Unmitigated hubris is profligate in these people who have never taken, or perhaps haven't had, the time to sift through sufficient material and even if they have the intellectual wherewithal they are 'just' kids.
Most people have no developed sense of self and self-possession resulting in their licensing of expressions fundamentally opposed to the actuality. Many times this emanates from dysfunctional minds and personalities. (Which explains most of the crazies' comments which are prominent throughout these exchanges. You also must diverge from the norm to just show up. I know because I do.)
As I am an old hippie sort, I find it fatiguing trying to press this BS into a coherent whole. Maybe because BS is so fluid? So hard to contain into a neat comment?
We just want what is good for us as a whole. We can explain why this is good for the society. We want to include you in our mutual trip into the future and (I hope) benefits all of you.
Tit for tat is the name of my game. It's the only one that is proven to work. Extend yourself first. See what happens in response. Use the Russian proverb to guide you, "Trust but verify." Keep yourself from having to respond in kind and if it goes South be prepared.
That is my definition of Progressive. Cleverly moving through the present to arrive to an eventual egalitarian Utopia for every survivor.
Think Star Trek and less about how we can't get to that state of personal responsibility without the weight of surviving constantly hounding you.
Sounds better than grinding your way to death, eh?

You do realize that was Khan's idea, right?

A utopia.

You people are just like him, with less brains and muscle.

How'd that work out for him and his sheep?

Ah, but the left also used that label.

The only difference here is, that in order to prove to whom the nazi characteristic befalls on, we compare actions, thought patterns, tactics. If people uses the brownshirt tactics, it is only fitting that the label befalls on them because it is the correct term to use. Similar to comparing flu symptoms and how a doctor diagnoses the flu on their patients.

If it quacks like a duck...its a duck. end of story.

Its not entirely off the mark though. The far left has become totally fascistic. And nazis were hard core socialists after all.

Be ready for all the socialists to get on here to claim that Nazi's weren't socialist.


I know it. When I was a lot younger I made that incorrect argument a few times myself until I read more. While staunch nationalists, most of their policies were very socialist. Moreso than our country is today, and we live in a somewhat moderate socialist state...though thats been changing.

Nationalism isnt bound to conservatives or liberals, though current liberalism in america is globalist rather than nationalist.

They weren't... Russia was the Socialist's in the war that helped the U.S. and other allies fight the Nazi's which were fascists.

a reply to: seeker1963 Really ? A crazy 80 year old white man in North Carolina hit a black protestor, that protestor was a brown shirt and was preventing freedom of speech. A black Trump supporter hit a white protestor wearing a kkk uniform. That's 2 incidences, how many Bernie supporters were hitting people trying to hear Trump, there were lots, thousands of vids on youtube. The violence came from Bernies college fanatics and BLM. Conservatives don't protest, we consider it low class, we don't block freedom of speech either and most of us conservatives think gay marriage is ok, cannabis should be legal, could care less about abortion. The violence didn't come from Trumps people, only a few did dumb stuff.

By them calling Trump a Nazi and his supporters little Brown Shirts, they're doing the same thing that Goebbels, who was the minister of propaganda, that Adolf and all those boys did. Because they demonized the Jews, the intellectuals, the communists, the gypsies, the homosexuals --

So are we just going to ignore the fact that Trump's ENTIRE campaign has been about demonizing "others"?

It's fun how the right likes to adopt this victim complex even though all negative media attention to him was brought on by him and his own words.

Looks like all that propaganda peddled to you worked 100% and then some. "Another Brownshirt is born"

When discussing American politics such things are moot as there is ONLY a right and a left.

Far right all the way to the middle and Far Left all the way to the middle at the extreme right and extreme left no real difference in wishing to control with fascism... although the ideologies differ they wrap around and become the exact same thing. That's why tolerance and balance seeks the middle of those two extremes in a workable manner and tries to protect itself from dipping to far to one extreme or the other that allows the most opportunity and freedom in doing so possible.
