Totalitarianism and Christmas

Totalitarianism - To·tal·i·tar·i·an·ism /tōˌtaləˈterēəˌnizəm/ Relating to a system of government that is centralized and dictatorial and requires complete subservience to the state.

Have you hesitated to shout out a jolly “Merry Christmas” to those you pass on the street? Maybe the policies at your work have caused you to end emails with a general “Happy Holidays” statement.

What began as, likely, well-intentioned measures to curb prejudices with the goal of encouraging tolerance seems to have devolved into thought policing and attempting to impose totalitarian-like measures of the silencing of dissent of any kind.

Donald Trump has been bold in showing America that if there’s one thing a free people cannot tolerate, it is a totalitarian mandate to silence all opinions differing from your own. That is an intellectually lazy, intolerant and unconstitutional position. So we join our President in embracing the vibrant and Constitutionally protected right of free speech, and will join Republicans around the state in wishing you a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!
