The Progressive-Democrat Jamaal Bowman now says his fellow Progressive-Democrat Kyrsten Sinema is a traitor for her continued verbal support for the Senate’s filibuster.
John Lewis is a hero, you [Sinema] are a traitor to his legacy, your constituents and our democracy.
This is typical of the Progressive-Democrat Party: either you support Party, or you’re a traitor, and separately, you’re also a racist.
Bowman’s rant brings to mind a couple of quotes. I’ll leave it as an exercise for the student to name the source(s).
It is thus necessary that the individual should finally come to realise that his own ego is of no importance in comparison with the existence of the nation, that the position of the individual is conditioned solely by the interests of the nation as a whole.
In every revolution, it has been the rule to brand political opponents as enemies…and so to justify completely depriving them of legal protection and property.
The…government will regard its first and supreme task to restore to the…people unity of mind and will. It will preserve and defend the foundations on which the strength of our nation rests…. In place of our turbulent instincts, it will make national discipline govern our life.
It is nonsense to suppose that a people wants to rule itself. It always comes to such ideas only when it is badly ruled.
Each activity and each need of the individual will be regulated by the party as the representative of the general good. There will be no licence, no free space in which the individual belongs to himself. The decisive factor is that the State, through the Party, is supreme.
I will tolerate no opposition. We recognise only subordination—authority downwards and responsibility upwards.
