The totalitarian left is hellbent at redefining everything that they do not approve of as hate speech and not even Jesus Christ is safe.
Americans will soon need to make a decision on exactly how far that they are going to allow the left to go in declaring everything that they disapprove of as a hate crime.
Such views have led to the rise of some of them most repressive regimes in world history and today’s left is showing signs of becoming a cult that in many aspects, mimics early Nazi Germany and the crushing of free speech.
Last week, someone left a painting of the Christian lord and savior on a fence outside of a Long Island mosque which authorities are investigating as a possible hate crime.
Seriously, this is what it has come to.

According to CNS News “Police Investigate Jesus Painting as a ‘Hate Crime’”:
On Friday, a painting of Jesus Christ hanging on the cross was left on a fence outside the Hillside Islamic Center in Long Island, New York. Now, the Nassau County Police Dept. is investigating the incident as a “hate crime.”
“A worker there had found this large painting of Christ on a cross on the property,” reported an anchor for NBC 4. “The anti-Muslim message was found hanging from a fence, deemed to be so obviously because it was a mosque.”
“Nassau County police said they are investigating the incident as a possible hate crime.”
The “anti-Muslim message,” as the NBC 4 anchor labeled it, was a green and white painting of Jesus’ silhouette hanging on the cross.
The man who hung the painting on the outside of the Islamic Center’s fence and left was caught on camera. The police department instructed anyone in the community with additional knowledge of the incident to contact a 1-800 tips number.
“Members of this North New Hyde mosque feel someone tried to attack their religion Friday,” said a reporter for News 12 Long Island. “The reaction was kind of surprised, that in this community, we’ve been here since 2002, this is the first time it has happened,” said a member of the Hillsdale Mosque.
At what point does all of this start crossing over into a soft-totalitarianism?
As Hannah Arendt once put it in her seminal book The Origins of Totalitarianism:
“The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or the convinced Communist, but people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction (i.e., the reality of experience) and the distinction between true and false (i.e., the standards of thought) no longer exist.”
We are just about there.
