Is it Really Fascism? You bet!

In the previous post I listed and wrote of Fascism and how it looks like what this country is experiencing under this administration. Today I want to expand on that same subject and show examples. I am sure that many of you can cite further examples as well. I invite you to do so.

The following statement is embedded in a speech delivered by Mussolini at Naples, October 24, 1912:
WE HAVE created our myth. The myth is a faith, it is passion. It is not necessary that it shall be a reality. It is a reality by the fact that it is a good, a hope, a faith, that it is courage. Our myth is the Nation, our myth is the greatness of the Nation! And to this myth, to this grandeur, that we wish to translate into a complete reality, we subordinate all the rest.
During the election period of 08 we listened to another Myth being formulated of Hope and Change and so far the Hope had turned to despair for many and Change is certainly not what was expected. Of course those who accepted this religion, this faith and fell to worship at the alter of Hope and Change have yet to raise their heads above the alter enough to see the reality of what is happening. The more those in elected office promise the unlearned and blind followers the more the myth will become their reality. The difference is the myth is not the nation but themselves and their leader and yes too that they will and have subordinated the rest.

 Fascists advocate the creation of a single party state with the belief that the majority is unsuited to govern itself through democracy and by reaffirming the benefits of inequality. Fascist governments forbid and suppress openness and opposition to the fascist state and the fascist movement.

Example of such is the attitude of the Democrats in Congrss, Pelosi and Reid who claim “we will do it without the Republicans” "Yes, we wrote the bill. Yes, we won the election," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.)
"I won. So I think on that one, I trump you."(Obama)

Members of the Democratic congressional party are attempting to silence talk radio by resurrecting the "Fairness Doctrine." Although Democrats would tell you otherwise, the regulation would limit free speech. (Jon Stinton, founder of Air America Radio, The left wing answer to FOX)

Obama appoints left wing Henry Rivera, a longtime radical leftist, lawyer and former FCC commissioner, as Czar for Media. River believes in a doctrine of "communications policy as a civil rights issue".

We can all observe just how open and transparent this administration has been despite the promises to be so during the election period and upon election. Secret deals in the back rooms of Congress on Health Care and failure to include any Republican in the formation of the Health Care bill. That is just a small sample of how this administration is working in the typical Fascist way. I am sure you can add more.

Fascism is a form of political behavior marked by obsessive preoccupation with community decline, humiliation or victimhood and by compensatory cults of unity, energy and purity, in which a mass-based party of committed nationalist militants, working in uneasy but effective collaboration with traditional elites, abandons democratic liberties and pursues with redemptive violence and without ethical or legal restraints goals of internal cleansing and external expansion.
Ahh, sweet Victimhood. The President who claims to be President of all people is by in large the biggest racist of them all. He constantly preaches the message of how the rich (in other words productive individuals) have taken advantage of the poor (in other words the non-productive individuals)
Candidate Obama stated: "How could America send men into space and still keep its black citizens in bondage?"(Dreams from My Father)

Obama also rejected integration as a goal because it is "a one-way street. The minority is assimilated into the dominant culture, not the other way around."(Dreams from My Father)
"The Bush tax cuts — people didn't need them, and they weren't even asking for them, and they ought to be relaxed so we can pay for universal health care and other initiatives." (Obama the candidate)

Fascist movements advocate the creation of an authoritarian, autocratic single-party state led by a charismatic dictator
I don’t believe this needs any explanation. All one has to do is see who the Democrats, George Soros and others put into office. The rest of the plan is clear in the actions taken by this pretender to the office of President has taken since taking office. He has side stepped the Congress, the Constitution at ever opportunity to advance his agenda. Seizure of the auto companies, replacing the heads of auto and banking is certainly not the actions of a President who took the oath to “uphold the Constitution of the US”

Fascist states pursued policies of social indoctrination, through propaganda in education and the media, and through regulation of the production of education and media material. Education was designed to glorify the fascist movement and inform students of its historical and political importance to the nation. It attempted to purge ideas that were not consistent with the beliefs of the fascist movement, and taught students to be obedient to the state.
Closure of the Charter Schools which provide at least a decent education for some of the poorest of black children in Washington DC was just one step this pretender has taken. Why would he wish to withhold a decent education from these children? Because Charter Schools do not teach the “party line” and an uneducated electorate insurers re-election and continued destruction of this country.

Fascists advocated a new national class-based economic system, variously termed "national corporatism", "national socialism" or "national syndicalism". The common aim of all fascist movements was elimination of the autonomy or the existence of large scale capitalism.

I have pointed out how this administration has already begun this takeover albeit without the vote or consulting of Congress.

Fascist governments exercised control over private property but did not nationalize it. They pursued economic policies to strengthen state power and spread ideology, such as consolidating trade unions to be state or party-controlled. They pursued economic policies to strengthen state power and spread ideology, such as consolidating trade unions to be state or party controlled. Private property rights were supported, but were contingent upon service to the state. For example, "an owner of agricultural land may be compelled to raise wheat instead of sheep and employ more labor than he would find profitable. "State intervention in economic production may take place only where private initiative is lacking or is insufficient, or when are at stakes the political interest of the State. This intervention may take the form of control, encouragement or direct management."

If anyone has read either version of the so called Health Care bill one can see that the door for total take over of the system is in place. The illusion that Insurance Companies would somehow be allowed to continue to market insurance is just that. All that has to be said is “it’s not working” so now government must step in.

Fascists declared their opposition to finance capitalism, interest charging and profit taking. Fascist governments nationalized some key industries, managed their currencies and made some massive state investments

Once again all one has to do is look at what has happened in the Banking industry and insurance industry. This administration is dictating how much companies can pay executives and putting limitation on how much can be charge, who loans can be made too and the list can go on. I am sure that you can add more.

The people who supposedly benefited from Italian fascist social policies were members of the middle and lower middle classes, who filled jobs in the vastly expanding government workforce, which grew to about a million in 1930. Health and welfare spending grew dramatically under Italian fascism, with welfare rising from seven percent of the budget in 1930 to 20% in 1940.

The fastest growing segment of the workforce has been in the government while unemployment lingers at over 10%. If truth be known and those who have given up searching for jobs the rate would be closer to 17% or better. But never fear, this administration is going to provide more jobs in the government sector by hiring 1.2 million census workers. Thus they can claim they reduced the unemployment rate by 1.2 million people regardless of the fact that these positions will not be anything more than temporary three to four month jobs. One spokesman for the census bureau said that a lot of these jobs could be made permanent. Just what we need, uneducated bean counters to harass citizens. Can anyone doubt that many of those going “full time” will be ACORN folks.

As far as health spending goes we can see the trend here as well with the Trillion dollar package that this administration insist on cramming down our throats regardless the fact that the majority of the people don’t want and think it is a bad idea.

Folks that is just a small sample of how far this country has fallen in the last 11 months and how we can expect to see the continued disintegration of this free Republic. Later in the week I will be focusing on how the trend MIGHT be reversed or if it actually can given the lack of leadership on the conservative side .

Re: your last sentence.

You had better define "conservative" because the last bunch we had in here were neither conservative nor (more importantly) were they equitable to the self-employed and working classes.

Granted, they were marginally better than this bunch of cretins, but many of us are sick and tired of being forced to use incremental superiority as a measure of “good” leadership.

I’m still rooting for the concept of a choice between more than two parties. If the Republicans get back in, they will see it as a mandate, much as did the Democrats in ‘08, and the pogrom against lower-income working Americans (“non-producers”) will kick into an even higher gear than that in which the previous administration ran it.

Which is to say that we will be just as S.O.L. as we are now . . .

Jeff, I don't combine Republicans with conservatives since they are not the same. When I say conservatives, I mean folks who know and understand the Constitution of the US and stand by it. Hopefully the conservative's can take over the Republican party since a third party will only mean more of Obamalamadingdong and his fascist/commie minions.

Dropping the Charter schools in D.C. and getting away with it is unbelievable.

The important thing now is to put real conservatives in office and stay very, very active and motivated and hold their feet to the fire.

None of this would have happened with some press coverage of what we knew AND had we not been told we had a financial crisis and there was no way out - because there way. It was a set up, IMHO.

Good article Ticker.

The financial crisis, just as the rest of the so called crisis, were just that, contrived. The theme of this administration has always been, "never let a good crisis go to waste". Of course to them if there is not one, create one. What better way to keep the eyes of the people on something other than the real ball. I remember an old game like that in the carnivals of years ago. It was called the shell game. Welcome to the OBAMA Carnival where every game is a shell game.
