Once again we see it. In The Coming of the Third Reich, historian Richard J. Evans explains how, in the early days of National Socialist Germany, Stormtroopers (Brownshirts) “organized campaigns against unwanted professors in the local newspapers [and] staged mass disruptions of their lectures.” To express dissent from Nazi positions became a matter of taking one’s life into one’s hands. The idea of people of opposing viewpoints airing their disagreements in a civil and mutually respectful manner was gone. One was a Nazi, or one was silent (and fearful).
Luke O’Brien of the Huffington Post is the modern-day Brownshirt who has targeted and attempted to destroy the life of Amy Mek, who recounts the success he has had here. This Huffington Post article is the equivalent of the Brownshirts’ “organized campaigns against unwanted professors in the local newspapers.” Amy Mek has committed no crime; the reason why her life must be destroyed, as far as Luke O’Brien is concerned, is because she is “racist” and “Islamophobic.” As evidence, O’Brien points out that she has praised Milo, who is so “racist” that he is in a gay marriage with a black man; as for “Islamophobia,” of course O’Brien means that she opposes jihad mass murder and Sharia oppression of women, non-Muslims, and others — in O’Brien’s mind, as a doctrinaire Left-fascist, all those who oppose such things are “bigots.”
The targeting of Amy Mek is bigger than Amy Mek, just as Britain’s jailing of Tommy Robinson is bigger than Tommy Robinson. You may not like Amy Mek. You may think she should go about things with a different style. But make no mistake: the Huffington Post and Luke O’Brien are sending you a message. That message is this: if you dare to dissent from the Leftist agenda, if you dare to oppose jihad terror and stand for the equality of rights of all people against Sharia oppression, we will destroy you.
They will brook no dissent, any more than Comrade Stalin or the Führer did. The Huffington Post and Luke O’Brien envision a world in which all those whom they deem to be “racists” and “Islamophobes” are silenced. Right now their weapon for that silencing is what Hillary Clinton recommended: peer-pressure and shaming. They’re trying to shame Amy Mek into silence, as they have tried for years to shame all those they smear as “bigots” into silence. If that doesn’t work, then come the Antifa thugs, who with a rock or a bike lock or a baseball bat will let the “Nazis” know that they stand on the side of righteousness, and make sure the “Nazis” are silent by making them physically incapable of talking.
If that doesn’t intimidate the rest into silence, then other measures will be forthcoming. This is the totalitarian initiative in America. Will free society in the United States survive the likes of Luke O’Brien and the Huffington Post? That’s anybody’s guess right now.
“Trump’s Loudest Anti-Muslim Twitter Troll Is A Shady Vegan Married To An (Ousted) WWE Exec: @AmyMek anonymously spread hate online for years. She can’t hide anymore,” by Luke O’Brien, Huffington Post, May 31, 2018:
She was supposed to be a Russian bot. That seemed like the best explanation for @AmyMek. No normal person could be so prolific and prejudiced.
For five years, the mysterious Twitter account ― which has more than 200,000 followers, including Sean Hannity, Roseanne Barr and the personal account of Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and has earned endorsements from Donald Trump and Michael Flynn ― has tirelessly spewed far-right propaganda and, above all, Islamophobia. Around 25 tweets a day, sometimes more, the majority of them designed to stoke hatred of Muslims….
Mekelburg also swooned over racist figures such as former Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopolous and YouTuber Stefan Molyneux and hyped white nationalist groups such as Soldiers of Odin, Proud Boys and Generation Identity. She vilified quarterback Colin Kaepernick for taking a knee, called Black Lives Matter a terrorist group and made light of police violence against black men….
Mekelburg had also been trying to make inroads into what Ibrahim Hooper calls “the cottage-industry of Islam haters,” which is run by bigots such as Pamela Geller, Robert Spencer, David Horowitz, Brigitte Gabriel and Frank Gaffney — several of whom have close ties to the Republican establishment and the Trump administration. Their efforts can be remunerative, thanks to generous funding from conservative and libertarian foundations such as the Donors Capital Fund….
