DISGUSTING! The Lincoln Project Compares Antifa To D-Day Heroes
The Democrats and the progressive left, including progressive Republicans, are fascist, not libertarian. The left has been trying to shift the "middle socialists" like the Italian Fascists and the Nazis to the right since WWII. They were never near the right; they were always far-leftist totalitarian organizations. The difference between them and the further left organizations like Stalinists and Maoists was that the further left groups wanted the state to own everything, including the people. The middle left wanted big businesses to continue to be owned by private persons, but the state would control all aspects of the business.
The progressives take this a bit further, allegedly wanting only to regulate businesses. But in the end-game, we see that regulation really means complete control, aka fascism, not simply regulation, e.g., the Christian baker who must bake wedding cakes for gays. Once fascism is accomplished, they will find they need total control over all four Ps - people, profits, products, and production (means of production). At that point, you will need to be disarmed so your enslavement can be completed, and the Democrats and progressives can get on with returning the world economy to the old feudal socio-economic system they so desperately wish to return to.
If you want to be a serf, without rights, living in mire and muck, vote Democrat; if not, don't; it is that simple.
