Are We Fascist Now?

Another of my long-term assertions that has become very relevant as of late is my claim that our current government is most similar in form to Fascism.  One of the primary objections people have raised to this has been that we can’t be a Fascist nation because we don’t have one-Party rule.   Well, now that the govt. can turn the DHS, IRS and Media on their political opponents with impunity – mainly because the supposed “opposition Party” does little more than make noise about these transgressions – how is it that anyone can say we do not now have the practical effect of One-Party rule?

So, how can an honest person claim we are not a fascist nation?

  1. In answer to your question….. Not according to Sean Hannity and his guests…..Juan Williams thinks y’all are just “Over-playing your hands”.

    • Don,

      That does appear to be the narrative the media has been directed to put out: “overplaying their hand”

      Do you think these guys realize how transparent they are?

      • Sean or Juan ??

        Meaning the Faux Conservatives ( actually RINO-progressives) or the Leftist Progressives ? …….. or Both ?

  2. “[Some “moderates” are trying to] revive that old saw of pre-World War II vintage, the notion that the two political opposites confronting us, the two “extremes,” are: fascism versus communism.

    The political origin of that notion is more shameful than the “moderates” would care publicly to admit. Mussolini came to power by claiming that that was the only choice confronting Italy. Hitler came to power by claiming that that was the only choice confronting Germany. It is a matter of record that in the German election of 1933, the Communist Party was ordered by its leaders to vote for the Nazis—with the explanation that they could later fight the Nazis for power, but first they had to help destroy their common enemy: capitalism and its parliamentary form of government.

    It is obvious what the fraudulent issue of fascism versus communism accomplishes: it sets up, as opposites, two variants of the same political system; it eliminates the possibility of considering capitalism; it switches the choice of “Freedom or dictatorship?” into “Which kind of dictatorship?”—thus establishing dictatorship as an inevitable fact and offering only a choice of rulers. The choice—according to the proponents of that fraud—is: a dictatorship of the rich (fascism) or a dictatorship of the poor (communism).

    That fraud collapsed in the 1940’s, in the aftermath of World War II. It is too obvious, too easily demonstrable that fascism and communism are not two opposites, but two rival gangs fighting over the same territory—that both are variants of statism, based on the collectivist principle that man is the rightless slave of the state—that both are socialistic, in theory, in practice, and in the explicit statements of their leaders—that under both systems, the poor are enslaved and the rich are expropriated in favor of a ruling clique—that fascism is not the product of the political “right,” but of the “left”—that the basic issue is not “rich versus poor,” but man versus the state, or: individual rights versus totalitarian government—which means: capitalism versus socialism.”

  3. No we are not Fascist now. We are much worse. We have history that shows us the evil that resulted for this form of tyranny.

    If they are prepared to proceed down this path knowing the evil required to implement it then they also must realize there are well beyond even the evil precipitated by the Nazi’s. We are in uncharted waters and the death, destruction and misery that is going to result will many powers above anything this world has ever experienced.

    The world recovered front the last Fascist experiment. It will not recover from this one.
