Oh, sure, the trollop in question, V. “Barbie” Stiviano, overtly broke California’s wiretapping laws by furtively recording the private conversation, but, hey, this is 2014 and Obama has finally ushered in the age of lawlessness.

When the delicious spectacle of a 24/7 tar-and-feathering is at stake, the “fruit of the poisonous tree” is just way too sweet to pass up. Is the recording admissible in any court of law? Well, no, but it’s sure as heck admissible in the court of public opinion, illegally obtained or not.

But, once again I ask, why stop there? What about all those reality-based “homophobic” bigots – you know, half of America and most of the world – who stubbornly insist that marriage, by definition, is, always has been and always will be the binary coupling of man and wife? Isn’t it time they, too, are drummed out of society and packed into boxcars?

Darn skippy.

Fascism is not for the squeamish or half-hearted. “Progressive” means “forward” and forward means, “This is an entirely new world, and if we’re going to step into it, let’s step all the way into it.”

So says Esquire political blogger Charlie Pierce. In a recent appearance on “PBS NewsHour,” he implied that the NBA should next move to confiscate the Orlando Magic from Dick and Betsy DeVos, Christian philanthropists and Amway heirs who, in the past, have supported maintaining the definition of natural marriage.


Said Pierce: “On another venture, what does Adam Silver now do, for example, with the DeVos family in Orlando, which funds ‘anti-gay’ candidates and ‘anti-gay’ issue ads all over the country, as well as owning the Orlando Magic? Does he talk to them? This is an entirely new world, and if we’re going to step into it, let’s step all the way into it.”

I think Pierce meant to say, “This is a brave new world,” but you get the idea.

Crushing dissent and terrorizing into silence those with traditional values is no small task. Serving up a palatable fascism cocktail cannot be effectively accomplished without following a specific recipe.

First, start with genuinely hateful and racist remarks by people like Sterling. Totally destroy them both publicly and privately and then move on to those with mainstream beliefs on such things as sexual morality and marriage. Next, disingenuously equate the two, add three cups of fascism, a dash of anti-Christian hate, whip to a frenzy and voila!

It’s a cultural Marxist paradise.

Mozilla, anyone?

Still, none of this can be accomplished without the aid of Amerikan Pravda. CNN’s Rachel Nichols gave a “how to” workshop on Wednesday:

“In the NBA you have an owner in Orlando, Rich DeVos, who’s made very unpopular statements [unpopular with whom?]. He’s campaigned against gay rights. He says that gay people should stop asking for special treatment because they want to get married,” Nichols opined. “There are a lot of people in this country who think that that is a problem [there are an equal number who don't], and I think that there is gonna be more and more attention paid to what these owners think. It’s not just the players in the spotlight now, it’s not just management. They’re accountable, too.”

Atta girl! It’s high time Christians and conservatives were held “accountable” for “what they think.”

Thought control is as American as Apfelstrudel!

And what about man-made global warming deniers, capitalists, so-called “pro-lifers” and generally anyone who watches the Fox News Channel? Why do they still have jobs?

I know, I know. Patience.

Barack Obama once said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. …

“It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Or was that Josef Goebbels?

Oh well, six of one …
