One of the key characteristics we saw in communist countries and fascism during the last century was how, as the government encouraged people to snitch on their neighbors, in some cases folks did it willingly. It turns out there is a large segment of Americans in today's society willing to do the same.
According to a new News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen taken regarding if someone would snitch on their neighbor regarding coronavirus quarantine restrictions, by a 44% to 31% margin, a plurality of Democrats would turn in their neighbors. By a 60% to 25% margin, Republicans would not.
A majority of Democrats, and apparently 25% of the members of the GOP polled, would make fine Soviets, NAZIs, or communists from places like China, Cuba, or when the Khmer Rouge were in control of Cambodia.
These are the same idiots who wear shirts with an image of mass murderer Che Guevara on the front.
The NAZIs, communist East Germany, and then pretty much all of the other communist countries (from the Eastern Bloc to Cuba), during the previous century, installed neighborhood snitch committees to report any “counter-revolutionary” behavior. I was talking to a Romanian who lived under communist rule who told me there were also financial police. A person, if they thought somebody else had more than them, could report them for not being financially equal to everyone else. My friend Arkady, who grew up in Ukraine, said that the local police had a file on everyone, filled with reports from their neighbors.
Now, we have Americans willing to do the same, but instead of NAZIs, or communists, they call themselves "progressives". I call them traitors.
