Could we be traveling a quiet road to tyranny?

Steve McCann’s recent summary of what we now know about the events on Capitol Hill on Jan. 6, 2021 indicates why we should all be very worried about the US, leader of the free world, sliding ever closer towards tyranny.

But it’s a slow journey on a quiet road, with the final destination not yet in sight.

J.B. Shurk has set out how far we’ve already come on this quiet road to tyranny

How do tyrannical despots attain absolute power without a violent revolution? They do it by stealth. It’s happened before...

On Jan. 30, 1933, Adolf Hitler was awarded the chancellorship of Germany by the ailing President Hindenberg. Although the Nazis were losing electoral support, they remained the largest party in the Reichstag, but without anything near a working majority. Hitler seized the chance to take control of all the reins of power. His pretext for the assumption of dictatorial powers was the Reichstag fire of Feb. 27, 1933.

Somehow a man managed to get into the Reichstag and -- supposedly undetected -- started a fire which turned into a conflagration. Where was the security?

Compare this with what happened on Jan. 6: the videos show the door-security officials at the Congress building inviting the participants in. Unfortunately for the Democrats’ agenda, there was very little disruption or destruction (although the shooting of Ashli Babbitt has yet to be the subject of a public investigation)....

These similarities with the Reichstag fire of 1933 are chilling, and we know the Reichstag fire was a set-up. The practical steps towards installing Hitler's tyranny started with a fabricated national security ‘emergency.’...

The significant difference between the Reichstag fire and the Capitol Hill ‘armed insurrection’ is that the latter did not turn out as the Democrats hoped because the necessary evidence is lacking and cannot not be retrospectively created....

Can anybody point me to that one time in history where the side that was demanding censorship, segregation, propaganda, radical education, papers to move freely in society, plus government forces going door to door to demand compliance were the good guys?
