I saw this on Twitter, via Ron Filipkowski, who apparently doesn’t approve:
Trump issues a special address to J6 defendants: “Our country is going communist .. People are imprisoned right now. People are being tormented. Can’t let it happen. We’re going to stop it, and we’re going to win.” pic.twitter.com/vDkjXVseYu— Ron Filipkowski (@RonFilipkowski) December 2, 2022
Trump said that the J6 defendants are being treated:
Unconstitutionally in my opinion, and very, very unfairly. And we’re gonna get to the bottom of it. And you know what I’ve said, I take it very seriously. I have never seen anything like it at all levels.
It’s the weaponization of the Department of Justice. And we can’t let this happen in our country, because our country is going not socialist. They’ve skipped over that. They skipped over socialism. Our country is going communist, this is what happens. And we can’t let it happen. We have to stop it.
So I want to thank everybody for working so hard. I know how hard you’re working to get justice for people that are imprisoned right now and people that are being tormented can let it happen. We’re going to stop it. We’re going to win. Thank you all very much.
This is something he said before, at a rally in Texas in October
Before our very eyes, Biden and his left wing handlers are turning America into a police state. And I don’t even think it’s Biden to be honest with you, but they got some bad people around, like something straight out of a communist country.
See, I used to say socialists, but we’ve skipped socialism. We don’t talk about that. I don’t even mention it anymore. We’re not socialists anymore, we’re communists. We’ve gone over socialism, we’re gone. It’s over. It’s communist. They’re talking about communist. This Is a communist system that we’re putting up with right now. The radical Democrats are locking up pro-life activists, persecuting their political opponents, spying on their political rivals, silencing dissent, and using the full force of government, law enforcement and the media to try and crush our movement
VDARE.com editor Peter Brimelow wrote at the time that
To my great delight, Trump also adopted my point that is what is going on under the Biden Regime is a communist (i.e., Left Totalitarian) coup.
The point of the comparison to Communism is not the socialization of the means of production, or building cities in places like Magnitogorsk... it’s the Gulags.
"The January 6th persecutions are, in other words, another high-level hoax. As with "Russian collusion," harmless people guilty of, if anything at all, petty offenses like trespass, are having their lives destroyed, as Michael Flynn's life was destroyed."https://t.co/XILQ6ljbPs— VDARE (@vdare) November 6, 2021
