The Pope Compares Populism to Hitler’s Rise

Published

on

Pope Francis is one of the most notable leaders to be afflicted by Trump Derangement Syndrome.

According to Vatican News, the pope told reporters that “I see that many people of good will, not only Catholics, are a bit gripped by fear, which is the usual message of populism.”

The pope continued:

They sow fear and then make decisions. Fear is the beginning of dictatorships.

Francis also drew tired parallels to the time leading up to the rise of Nazi Germany:

Let’s go back to the last century, to the fall of the Weimar Republic. I repeat this a lot. Germany needed a way out and, with promises and fears, Hitler came forward.

The religious leader emphasized the need to learn from history:

We know the result. Let’s learn from history, this is not new: To sow fear is to make a harvest of cruelty, closures, and even sterility

Francis also expressed concerns with President Trump’s border wall and other border fences going up in the Spanish autonomous cities of Ceuta and Melilla.

When asked specifically about these walls, the pope claimed that “builders of walls, whether they are of razor-wire or brick, will become prisoners of the walls they build. That’s history.”

The pope then said, “we need bridges and we feel pain when we see people who prefer to build walls.”

On the other hand, the pope praised open borders advocates saying that “Those who build bridges, on the other hand, will go far. Building bridges for me is something almost superhuman, it takes a very great effort.”

The pope concluded:

Walls, however, are against communication, they are for isolation and those who build them will become prisoners.

Francis didn’t acknowledge the large walls surrounding Vatican City or call for their demolition in his speech railing against “walls.”

Despite the pope’s hand-wringing, Europeans are quickly realizing the dangers of open borders.

No-go zones have already emerged in countries like Germany, while the assimilation of migrants continues to be a headache for many other European countries.

This has resulted in the rise of populist governments like Matteo Salvini’s governing coalition in Italy, which has put the clamps on illegal migration so far.

Even in America, as BLP reported, the majority of GOP voters believe that immigration is the number one issue that should be tackled during the 2020 elections.

Unlike most elitist political figures, many voters understand the importance of having secure borders and immigration systems that bring in quality migrants who gel well with their new place of residency.

NO MURDER CHARGES: Fired Detective Brett Hankinson Receives Indictment for Wanton Endangerment, No Officers are Charged for the Death of Breonna Taylor

Published

on

On September 23, 2020, Jefferson County Judge Annie O’Connell announced that fired detective Brett Hankinson will be indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for his actions on the night of Breonna Taylor’s death.

Hankison had previously admitted to shooting blindly. Some of those shots were fired into neighboring apartments not into Breonna Taylor’s where her boyfriend had opened fire onto police.

Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, the other two officers involved in a serving a search warrant on the night that Taylor was killed, did not receive any charges.

The city of Louisville was placed under a state of emergency on September 22, when city officials shutdown a significant portion of the city perimeter to traffic. The majority of administrative building and other businesses were boarded up prior to the decision. Louisville has been rocked by riots related to Taylor’s death in March. These riots have been occurring for over 100 days and have resulted in a number of deaths and heated confrontations with law enforcement.

Starting on the night of September 23, there will be a 72-hour curfew in Louisville. The curfew will not apply to people partaking in essential travel, which includes work-related purposes or medical attention. Kentucky National Guard members will be deployed to the city for the purpose of maintaining public order.

Given the indictment doesn’t match the BLM demands of murder charges for all officers involved, such precautionary measures are necessary to quell potential unrest coming from the Left. Since May, radical leftists have taken advantage of controversial police actions to tear up property and cause mayhem across the country. An incident like Taylor’s death is most assuredly being politicized by the Left and will likely fuel further disturbances across the nation.

Conservatives and nationalists should make it a point to promote healthy debate, while establishing a baseline of public security, to ensure that the country does not spiral further out of control in such times of instability.
