It's you progressives who practice fascism. You're too blind to notice there are many similarities between the current progressive regime and 1930's Germany.

Have you ever read "Disinformation", a very good book by a former KGB spy. It looks into how Russians manipulates information even here in the US to obtain their goals.
As the author puts it -Russia was never a country to be straight forward but always prefer to be clandestine in what they do or want.
It is an interesting read as you can see some of the same tactics as those used by Alinsky and the modern Progressives.
Maybe, it shouldn't be a surprise as it was the Communist party here in the US who ran a candidate for President using the name Progressive Party.
lol! I'm sure waxman has. he's a ruskie through and through!

Then again, so are the other ruskie reich wing lovers here!

"Undercover stings used to fight domestic terrorism

WICHITA, Kan.(AP)- The arrest of a Kansas man accused of trying to bring what he thought was a car bomb into a Wichita airport marked the culmination of a months-long undercover sting in what has become a successful and widely used domestic counterterrorism tactic.

Court documents detail Terry Lee Loewen's alleged conversations with undercover FBI agents over six months. The discussions began with vague sentiments about his desire to commit "violent jihad" against the U.S. before turning into a detailed, concrete plot in which the agents recruited him to use his airport access to plant a bomb in a martyrdom operation.

Loewen, a 58-year-old avionics technician who worked at the airport for Hawker Beechcraft, was arrested Friday on charges including providing support to al-Qaida and attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction. He remains jailed, and prosecutors expect to take their case to a grand jury Wednesday.

The case resembles a string of investigations conducted by the FBI since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks that have prompted controversy over whether law enforcement's tactics involve entrapment and violate civil liberties.

One such case involved an undercover agent pretending to be a terrorist who provided a teenager with a phony car bomb, then watched him plant it in downtown Chicago. In Boston, a man was sentenced to 17 years in prison for plotting with undercover agents to fly remote-controlled planes packed with explosives into the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol.

The FBI insists the stings are a vital, legal tool for averting potentially deadly terrorist attacks - and juries have returned tough sentences.

Dan Monnat, a prominent Kansas defense attorney who isn't representing Loewen, said the 21-page criminal complaint against Loewen doesn't contain enough information to find his guilt or evidence of FBI entrapment. But he questioned the FBI's tactics.

"If the fragile mental state of an otherwise upstanding individual is exploited to commit a crime that the individual otherwise would not have taken steps to commit, how does that make us safe and why spend taxpayer money on prosecution?" Monnat said Saturday...."

"Megyn Kelly is dreaming of a white Christmas.
The Fox News star has stepped into a holiday hornet’s nest by insisting on her show that both Jesus and Santa Claus were white — and that anybody who believes otherwise needs to get over it.
“For you kids watching at home,” Kelly said during her prime-time show on Wednesday,“Santa just is white. But this person is arguing that maybe we should also have a black Santa.”
Then Kelly, a Fox franchise player, dug herself in further by saying that Santa couldn’t be anything but Caucasian because he’s like Jesus.
“Just because it makes you feel uncomfortable doesn’t mean it has to change,” Kelly said.“You know, I mean, Jesus was a white man, too.”
Kelly was reacting to a Slate.com piece by Aisha Harris, who had made the case that maybe, as the U.S. becomes more diverse, it was time to “ditch Santa the old white man altogether, and embrace Penguin Claus.”
“People love penguins,” Harris wrote.
Fox News' Megyn Kelly

Fox News' Megyn Kelly
There was no immediate response from Kelly to the uproar, but a Fox News spokeswoman said she would address the controversy on her Friday broadcast. She was ill Thursday.
While it is true that both Jesus and Santa Claus have been depicted by European painters as white for centuries, many scholars say the historical figures probably weren’t the kind of white that would have passed muster with a segregated 1950s golf club.
Jesus was a Jew born in Bethlehem, a Semitic town in what is now the West Bank.
And the New Testament does not describe his appearance.
The historical St. Nicholas is believed to have been a Greek bishop living in what’s now Turkey, two countries where fair-skinned blondes like Kelly aren’t as common as they are in, say, Sweden.
The jolly, red-cheeked figure we’ve come to know as Santa Claus appears to be a melding of the Father Christmas figure from England and the Dutch Sinterklaas.
Sinterklaas’ sidekick, however, is Zwarte Piet, or Black Pete, a figure some complain is a relic from Holland’s racist past that should be retired."
Commercial Santa Claus is white so Kelly was correct.
St. Nickolas was a German also white who Santa Claus is based.
Jesus is a Jew

This brouhaha is stupid nit picking goofiness by the left. Instead of a hornet's nest it's more like one or two shit eating flies. Where's the Raid?

He might just be pagan son....

"4th century: There are two main, incompatible belief systems about St. Nicholas:
bullet Among Roman Catholics and conservative Protestants, there is a near universal belief that St. Nicholas of Bari once lived in Asia Minor, and died in either 345 or 352 CE. The Catholic Information Network speculates that he was probably born in Patara in the province of Myra in Asia Minor; this is apparently based on the belief that he later became bishop of Myra in Lycia (now Turkey). 8. He is alleged to have attended the first council of Nicea; however, his name does not appear on lists of attending bishops. He is honored as a Patron Saint in Austria, Belgium, Germany, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Russia, Sicily, and Switzerland. 2 He is also considered the patron saint of children and sailors.

Many legends and miracles are attributed to him:
bullet When he was an infant, his mother only nursed him on Wednesdays and Fridays; he fasted the remaining days.
bullet He halted a storm at sea in order to save three drowning sailors.
bullet During his lifetime, he adored children and often threw gifts anonymously into the windows of their homes.
bullet His father left him a fortune which he used to help poor children.
bullet He grabbed the sword of an executioner to save the life of a political prisoner.
bullet He brought back to life several children who had been killed.
bullet Some religious historians and experts in folklore believe that there is no valid evidence to indicate that St. Nicholas ever existed as a human. In fact, there are quite a few indicators that his life story was simply recycled from those of Pagan gods. Many other ancient Pagan gods and goddesses were similarly Christianized in the early centuries of the Church. His legends seems to have been mainly created out of myths attributed to the Greek God Poseidon, the Roman God Neptune, and the Teutonic God Hold Nickar. "In the popular imagination [of many Russians] he became the heir of Mikoula, the god of harvest,'who will replace God, when God becomes too old.' " 8

When the church created the persona of St. Nicholas, they adopted Poseidon's title "the Sailor." They seem to have picked up his last name from Nickar. Various temples of Poseidon became shrines of St. Nicholas. 1 "In medieval England... in tiny sea ports we find the typical little chapel built on an eminence and looking out to sea." 8 St. Nicholas also adopted some of the qualities of "The Grandmother" or Befana from Italy. She was said to have filled children's stockings with gifts. Her shrine at Bari was also converted into a shrine to St. Nicholas.

The Christian church created a fictional life history for St. Nicholas. He was given the name Hagios Nikolaos (a.k.a. St. Nicholas of Myra)...."
