I always find it interesting, abjectly perplexing, to hear the leftists accuse everyone else of fascism. The leftists run about claiming that constitutional conservatives, classical liberals, are fascists, meaning shutting down opposing views, insights, perspectives, speech.
Needless to say, the left, as usual, has it all wrong. Consider this past college commencement season, how many conservative speakers were asked to deliver addresses at our college and university campuses. Need I remind you of the incessant backlash conservative students face on our campuses, heck, even in our high schools these days?
Let us not forget the kid that was punched in the face at Cal Berkeley. Or how about the group Antifa, supposedly anti-fascist, that destroys property to protest classical liberal speakers.
We need not look any further than the social media outlets who consistently assault classical liberal thoughts and ideas, speech.
Why does this happen? It’s simple: because the progressive socialist left are the real fascists and they demand subjugation, ideological domination. And here we have yet another example, to our North this time.
As reported by LifeSiteNews:
“Distribution companies are effectively banning the film Unplanned from screening in Canadian cinemas, according to the producers of the pro-life biopic.
Speaking at an Ottawa news conference on May 8, producer Lisa Wheeler said, “We have been effectively blocked from distributing the film in Canada.”
Chuck Konzelman, the film’s writer, director, and producer, told LifeSiteNews via email that at least one of the two largest Canadian film distributors said “content” rather than a lack of consumer demand is the reason for banning the film.
According to Konzelman, Canadian law requires that films have distributors so that they can be shown theatrically. In addition, no rating from one of the provincial film boards can be granted, because the producers must list a distributor on the application forms to the film boards.
Based on the memoir of Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood leader who eventually left the movement, Unplanned experienced success in the United States, taking in more than $18 million at the box office since its release in March, having been budgeted for $6 million.
Regarding the ban on the film, Johnson told a news conference earlier this month, “I would like to say I’m surprised, but I’m not.”
Speaking on the day before Canada’s March for Life, Johnson told the media, “I have to wonder what they’re afraid of.” Two of the largest distributors in Canada, Landmark and Cineplex, have no plans to show Unplanned. In an email response to LifeSiteNews, Konzelman confirmed that there are still no distributors for the film in Canada.
“In Canada, Cineplex basically has monopolistic power . . . the National Post mentions them as controlling nearly 80 percent of all movie screens, and from our limited experience, they seem to have many of the most desirable locations, in and near the major metropolitan areas,” Konzelman wrote. “So rejection by Cineplex basically means we’re not playing in Canada.”
Here is what you need to know about the fascist progressive socialist left. Their definition of rights is not based upon the classical liberal understanding of individual freedoms and liberties. No, their definition of “rights” are based upon their ideological agenda, and in this case, it is murdering unborn babies, which we know they now embrace murdering born babies. This is the left’s religion, their cause du jour and nothing can stand in their way.
I have been to see the movie “Unplanned” and wrote about it here. It is a moving film that tells the true story of Abby Johnson, a young Texas woman. One can just imagine that if the movie was about Abby’s life up to her “Damascus road” moment, it would be featured all over the place, everywhere. Nope, it goes beyond that point and tells the story of her conversion to becoming a young woman who no longer wanted the life that she had as a Planned Parenthood’s youngest clinic director.
What Canada — and the progressive socialist left fascists — have said to Abby is that we do not accept your life story. Your life story does not align with our ideological belief, therefore, your freedom of speech, expression, heck, existence is denied. See, the fascist left would rather defend another white woman, one who was a racist, a white supremacist, one who spoke at KKK rallies, Margaret Sanger. The reason being is that Sanger is in alignment with the ideology of these leftists, these fascists. These almost demonic people who go apoplectic when states stand up for life for the unborn, but rejoice when states sign into law the death warrant of unborn babies.
Ask yourselves: where are all the screenwriters and Hollywood production studios to speak out against this fascist action in Canada? God knows, they have plenty of time and energy to enact economic terrorism against Georgia and other states who will not succumb to their deranged worship of the god Moloch.
How is it that anyone votes for these tyrants, ideologues, individuals who will stop at nothing to force their beliefs upon anyone who opposes by way of threats, coercion, intimidation, mandate, banning, and eventually, violence? They are driven by a rage that is unconscionable, and to this point, we have allowed them to steamroll we classical liberals, those who believe that we still do have individual rights and freedoms, they are enshrined in our Constitution. But for these leftist fascists, constitutional rights are subservient to their ideological rights.
Consider the recently passed Equality Act in the Democrat (socialist) controlled House of Representatives on Monday. Who are these people to mandate equality? It is not actually about equality, it is about their preferred ideological agenda. If you have an opposing belief, pro-traditional family, pro-life, pro-two genders, then you will be criminally punished . . . brought before their courts for ideological prosecution. You will have your businesses and livelihood destroyed unless you bow down to their definition of equality . . . their definition of rights.
Well, chose for yourselves today whom you shall serve, be it the gods of social egalitarianism (forced equality) and the fascists who demand your ideological surrender. Or, will you stand up, on your own two feet as a freedom loving individual who realizes that your unalienable rights are from your Creator, not man?
Oh, Canada . . . you are harboring fascists who will — as they always do — strip you, eventually, of all your rights. Today it is the movie “Unplanned.” Tomorrow, well, it is every aspect of your existence. The progressive socialist left must do this because what they believe in is really unacceptable, detestable, hence why they must force it upon you.
And that, folks, is fascism.
