Domenech: Americans Need To Realize What Time It Is In This Country And Get On Their Knees

The signs are everywhere that America is host to the conditions that lead to dangerous tyranny, Federalist Publisher Ben Domenech said while hosting Fox News “Primetime” on Thursday night: “Every day we see the signs of a new fanaticism in our country and the eagerness to join with the new movement.”

“Few people remember that the book burnings of the German 1930s were led by student activists who started with their own campus libraries,” Domenech said. “They didn’t want the books that challenged their delicate minds. A lot triggered our young little Nazis. When they ran out of campus libraries, they came for the independent bookstores. The government, happy to help, only came in later. Does this sound familiar?”

The left’s refusal to learn from history, Domenech said, is nothing new.

“They always pretend to learn from our history and assume we are somehow more enlightened than our ancestors, that they were evil but we are fit to make our own rules our own history, to ban ideas.

We’ve got this,” Domenech said. “…The first thing tyrants do when they’re in charge is ban speech. But not just any speech, they ban the speech that threatens them.”

The ruling class doesn’t need to implement these bans themselves. Instead, Domenech said they use proxies such as “mobs and the students, the corrupt corporate press and the tech oligarchs” to carry out the dirty work.

The only hope, Domenech underscored, is for Americans to understand the height of the dangers we are now in, and to resort both to prayer and action.

“The left comes for religious Americans not because they want to abolish religion, but because they want to replace it: with race politics, with scientism, and with their Marxist, fascist agenda that would pile the Bibles high and turn them into ash,” he said. “And yet: ‘The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.’ It won’t. It can’t. And
