Liberal Fascism laid bare in one @DonnaBrazile tweet

Donna Brazile

Donna Brazile

Donna Brazile is a Democrat activist and frequent on-air spokeswoman for the party, when she’s not pretending to be an objective analyst. And she was the manager for Vice President Gore’s unsuccessful campaign in 2000. She also, apparently, deeply desires rule-by-decree in the United States.

This morning she tweeted:

Well, gosh, Donna. I’m awful sorry that Republicans in the House and Senate, listening to their constituents (1), act like an opposition and oppose policies they think are bad. That’s what opposition parties do in democratic republics like ours; it’s part of the whole scheme. (2) If President Obama wants the minimum wage raised or our immigration policies reformed, maybe he should come up with revised proposals the Republicans might agree to. You know, political give-and-take?

Nah. That would be too much like work for him, and he hates that.

But, back to that “executive action” bit, Donna, we carefully and firmly divided the lawmaking power from the law enforcement power: Congress has the former, the Executive the latter, and one doesn’t get to do the other’s job just because it’s feeling frustrated.  As Madison wrote in Federalist 47:

The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.

It must be frustrating for you that Obama can’t act like a tyrant, but, last time I checked, we hadn’t passed an enabling act. You know, though, I seem to recall a country that did

What Mr. Madison called “tyranny,” Donna, seems to be the goal of modern American progressivism. A “liberal fascism.”

Thanks for making that clear.

Note: Sometimes the tweet takes a few seconds (minutes?) to display. I think it’s a problem in the hookup between Twitter and WordPress.

(1) That’s why it’s called “democracy.” You Democrats should try to acquaint yourselves with it, sometime.
(2) There’s this thing called “the Constitution.” It gives all the lawmaking power to Congress, not the president. Sorry if that frustrates you.

UPDATE: Welcome Instapundit readers! Thanks, Glenn!

    It does frustrate her, and she would be happy to vote for an enabling act for mr. Obama… because if she had a son, he
    Would look just like lil’ ol Barry. Apparently, in the community organizing business, that’s 97% of the battle.

  2. MikeP says:

    What did she tweet?

  3. Pamela says:

    Nicely done; appropriate snark.

  4. Brown Line says:

    Sorry, but there’s something askew with the formatting, because the text of the tweet isn’t being displayed. I’m using FF under Linux.

  5. Brown Line says:

    Ah! It’s displaying now. Thanks!

    And don’t even get her started on the Supreme Court…

    Fifteen minutes and counting and still no tweet from Brazille appearing on my screen. I’m sure your reply is devastating, but I obviously have no clue what comment you are replying to.

    Here’s an idea – just type the tweet out at the top for us. By definition, it can’t be more than 140 characters so it won’t take too long.

  9. Uni says:

    If she had a son, he’d look just like Obama.

    Be about the same age, too

    Someone once said”
    “My momma taught me to play by the rules and respect those rules. My mother taught me, and I’m sure your mother taught you, that when you decide to change the rules, middle of the game, end of the game, that is referred to as cheating.”


  11. Rich says:

    That tweet actually makes zero sense.

  12. Charlie says:

    Better a progressive fascist state where we are all equal regardless of our background than a theocratic dictatorship where if you don’t line up with some strict interpretation of a holy text, you’re dead.

    • Rich Weinstein says:

      What are you, some type of idiot? Why don’t we just try to keep the Democratic Republic that was handed to us 200+ years ago? Don’t give me some moral relativism. And do you really, really think that Progressive Facism leads to everyone being equal? I take back my original question. Only an idiot would think so.

    • Jack Klompus says:

      The scary thing is that you’re probably convinced that you’re intelligent.

    • Larry Rasczak says:

      Yes… those “progressive fascist” states never just shoot people, or send them off to re-education camps, because they don’t line up with some strict interpretation of what the Party says! Look how much Stalin and Mao and Hitler welcomed open and honest disagreement!

      The stupid… it burns…

    the blob of protoplasm is a known racist and far left hate monger ….. she is a good example of racism in the USA today

  14. David Jay says:

    So Charlie – Those are the only two options? 1984 or the Caliphate?

    How did the United States get by for “like… more than a hundred years” (ref: Ezra Klein) as a constitutional republic?

    Dem cracka wracciss slave owners plans it td’at way just to mess wid Obama.

  17. R Daneel says:

    Phin – Just a quibble, it is a Federal Republic, not a Democratic Republic. Seems like such a small thing but….

  18. tmavenger says:

    This woman’s spin is really breathtaking. She characterized “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor” as “A 98% truth”. Today she said that “We don’t have a strategy yet” as “The gaffe that wasn’t.”

    Well, I guess it always depends on what the definition of “is” is. (ISIS?)

  19. Thucydides says:

    A Republic, if you can keep it.

    Such a shame that those who are trying to take your Republic away are so small, yet seem to be succeeding…..
