Fascism is not all about jackboots marching in the street; it’s much more often insidious. And what we are discovering by the revelations in the release of the Twitter files by new owner Elon Musk is a working definition of fascism. It’s what you have when government agencies, including those of law enforcement and intelligence, collaborate with major corporate interests as “state actors” to commit massive violations of the free speech guaranteed by the First Amendment in the pursuit of power. This is right out of the totalitarian playbook and it is obvious that the tyranny in evidence here is broad and deep and extends from the 2016 elections to the present. Historically, this is a phenomenon of the radical progressive socialist left, and the current case is no exception. And it has been designed and perpetrated by the very political party and its regime and fellow travelers that have for six years brazenly condemned its opponents of scheming to undermine “our democracy” and create an autocracy. Assuming he continues to release the relevant Twitter files and pursues complete transparency, Elon Musk will have done the country a great service, and I believe that the end result will make the Watergate case look like jaywalking.
