Tony Ortega blog: Warning Signs

The holiday season in America usually suggests a time when people set their differences of opinion aside and come together to celebrate in an atmosphere of peace and goodwill. Today, however, there is a different feeling in the air. With the protests against what seems to be an ever increasing level of hate and intolerance spreading across the country, we thought this might be a good time to urge people to be on the side of right.

History takes a dim view of those small, narrow-minded few of every age who attempt to whip others into the same frenzied rage of blind hatred they feel. Future generations will look at Tony Ortega’s blog and see in it every red flag evident as previous intolerant fascistic groups attempted to seize power.

While we realize it has become something of a cliché at this point to causally throw about comparisons between Ortega and his anti-Scientologist brigade to Hitler and his Nazi party, attentive readers are urged not to miss these clear warning signs.

Ignorance, as the protester’s sign above illustrates, when brought to a boil by the fires of irrational fear and suspicion distill into the sort of hate that brings society to its knees. And Tony Ortega’s blog seeks exactly this end.

When the combined forces of the sort of targeted propaganda Tony Ortega and company routinely engage in find magnification among the ignorant masses looking for a scapegoat to blame for their troubles, that is the time to start ringing the alarm bells. We believe this is what we are seeing happening right now.

We believe hate cannot be allowed to win over over intolerance, and the future will clearly show that Tony Ortega’s blog is on the wrong side of history.
