Degrees Of Difference – #FascismWatch

St. Petersburg, Florida, August 2018 [Lucia Sang, Fox News, reporting]:

For the past two days, a Florida city has been littered with fliers accusing a local businessman of being a predator who profits from “sexual violence, physical abuse and the caging of undocumented people” — all because he rents office space to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

…It’s an agreement that goes back 21 years and was recently renewed.

On Wednesday, dozens of fliers showing his image were posted around St. Petersburg’s downtown area, where he owns several businesses, including the Birchwood Inn.

“I was taking my son to school yesterday when my elderly neighbor who walks dogs for a living came up to me and said, ‘I need to talk to you,’” Prather said. “[She said] there are posters all over town. It has a big picture of you and it says that you are a predator. What is going on?’”

Prather added: “They were everywhere.”

The fliers, which call for people to boycott all of Prather’s businesses, say in part: “Charles ‘Chuck’ Prather of the Birchwood Inn directly profits from sexual violence, physical abuse and the caging of undocumented people in the greater Tampa community. Chuck has earned his wealth through leasing property to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) as well as other border control offices.”

And the harassment campaign didn’t stop there.

On Thursday morning, Prather woke up to find more posters plastered around his home, and the words “EVICT ICE” spray painted on the sidewalk.

For the past two days, a German city has been littered with fliers accusing a local businessman of being a ‘Jew Lover’ who profits from “sexual violence, physical abuse committed by blood-thirsty Hebrew people” — all because he rents office space to a Jewish business.

…It’s an agreement that goes back 21 years and was recently renewed.

On Wednesday, dozens of fliers showing his image were posted around Munich’s downtown area, where he owns several businesses, including the Birkenholz-Gasthaus.

“I was taking my son to school yesterday when my elderly neighbor who walks dogs for a living came up to me and said, ‘I need to talk to you,’” Karl Präther said. “[She said] there are posters all over town. It has a big picture of you and it says that you are a Jew Lover. What is going on?’”

Präther added: “They were everywhere.”

The fliers, which call for people to boycott all of Präther’s businesses, say in part: “Karol ‘Karl’ Präther of the Birkenholz-Gasthaus directly profits from sexual violence, physical abuse committed by blood-thirsty Hebrew people in the greater Munich community. Karl has earned his wealth through leasing property to Jews as well as other Jewish-controlled offices.”

And the harassment campaign didn’t stop there.

On Thursday morning, Präther woke up to find more posters plastered around his home, and the words “ACHTUNG! JUDEN” spray painted on the sidewalk.

-Not so different, eh?…just by degrees…for now.

Where will this end in America?…like it did in Germany when the Fascists gained enough Power And Control?

Arm yourselves ’cause a hard rain is gonna fall.

    The Fascists have already taken power, Donald Trump’s, or for that matter, Ronald Reagan’s elections not withstanding.
