Liberals love to share an old quote attributed to Sinclair Lewis that goes, “When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.” As always, the left gets it wrong.

When fascism comes to America, it will be adorned with corporate logos. Liberal fascism is taking over America and its proponents are corporations.

Prager University is a nonprofit educational organization run by talk show host Dennis Prager. PragerU as it is sometimes called, produces educational videos that it then places on various platforms, including YouTube, which is owned by Google. Mr. Prager’s videos are definitely from a conservative or libertarian point of view.

Recently YouTube put 21 of PragerU’s videos on “restricted mode.” This is typically reserved for material that is inappropriate for teenagers. PragerU designs its videos to be educational and to be viewed by all ages. While YouTube puts PragerU videos regarding the police, racism, Feminism and Muslim women on its restricted list, videos produced by left wing organizations on the same topics are not.

YouTube’s parent company Google has been accused of altering search results in its eponymous search engine to favor Hillary Clinton. Searches done this summer by groups showed, for example, “Hillary Clinton crime” did not show stories that featured accusations that Clinton had committed crimes. Instead if directed searchers to Hillary Clinton on crime reform. Even today, a search of “Hillary Clinton cri” will not bring up any suggested searches for Clinton crimes. It will show Hillary Clinton crisis or Hillary Clinton cries, but crime is not to be found.

Meanwhile, competing search engines, will fill in those blanks. On Bing, the search “Hillary Clinton Cr” immediately brings up suggested terms for Hillary Clinton criminal. The search engine Duckduckgo also brings up similar results.

Google is not the only one. Social media giant Twitter has long been hostile territory for conservatives. While Twitter would not ban Islamic State supporters and Black Lives Matters supporters who called for violence, they quickly banned the famous “Instanpundit” Glen Reynolds. His ban was quickly reversed after some negative press. Twitter banned for life Breitbart tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos for being conservative.

And it isn’t just Twitter. Facebook admitted they suppressed conservative stories. Founder Mark Zuckerberg met with conservative leaders earlier this year after reports came out about Facebook editors ensuring content from conservative websites was suppressed while content from liberal websites was promoted.

It isn’t just social media that has become fascist. Corporate America is fascist. Major American corporations have launched full force into the LGBTQ revolution. Corporation such as Paypal, General Electric, Dow Chemical, Pepsi, Hyatt and Hewitt Packard have announced they will boycott North Carolina because the people in North Carolina supported a law that says women have the right to privacy in the bathroom and have the right to use the bathroom without men coming into the bathroom.

Some of these corporations do business with some of the most repressive regimes in the world. Yet they are upset that North Carolina doesn’t want men in the women’s bathroom.

Fascism only allows one opinion. That is the approved opinion. That is what we have in America today. The leading proponents of fascism is not the government. It is big American corporations.

Sinclair Lewis had it wrong. Fascism comes to America with big shiny corporate logos emblazoned on it.
