Fascism American Style

The Nation:The Right Leans In

Quote from article:
"Though Democrats largely outperformed electoral expectations at the federal level last year, Republicans made significant gains in several states. The GOP is using this shift to redistribute wealth by cutting taxes on the rich while raising them on working-class citizens, largely through sales tax increases. What makes this year different from past Republican realignments, however, is the massive increase in funds available to conservative think tanks operating on the state level, as well as how these groups have made the goal of consolidating power through attacking unions and similar tactics central to their agenda.

These media-savvy organizations—which frequently employ former journalists to churn out position papers, news articles, investigations and social media content with a hard-right slant—bolster the pro-corporate lobbying efforts of the American Legislative Exchange Council. Like ALEC, State Policy Network groups provide an ideological veil for big businesses seeking to advance radical deregulatory policy goals. Interviewed at the San Francisco event this past January, SPN’s Sharp maintained that her organization is loosely connected and has no coordinated agenda. But if the last four years are any guide, conservative think tanks are on the march, working from a similar script to tear down organized labor and promote extreme right-wing policies in state capitols from Alaska to Florida."

Facism is a natural order that permeates just about every species of the animal kingdom, including humans. Because humans are more intelligent than other species, we know that facisim is wrong. Humans are capable of doing the important work to keep facism from becoming dominant. When we listen to the on air talk show hosts or read their poinsonous literature, we know about the doom they are planning for the rest of us, and therefore, we take action to protect our freedoms.

Fascism through less government.

That's like saying virginity through more sex.

I knew a girl in college like that. The more she had sex, the more she claimed she was a virgin. I also know of a talk show host who constantly spews out garbage, but tries to convince people he's inviting them to a gourmet dinner.

The only question I have is this, did geese teach the Nazis' how to "goosestep", or did the Nazis' teach the geese how to do it?

So far we have prevented the goose-steppers from coming out of the closet on a massive scale. Their subtle influences seems to be gaining ground at times, but fortunately so-called liberals will rise to the occassion and temporarily put the facists a few steps back. There will always be people who think their small group should amass all the wealth and power while the masses cater to their most trivial desires and pursuits This is the attitude of Euro's toward minorities in this country, and if facisim isn't kept in check it will eventually place most Euro's in the same predicament.

Martin Niemoller wrote:
"In Germany they came first for the Communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up."

If you can't dazzle them with Brilliance then baffle them with Bullshit.

Am I right?

New video that Jim Carrey has released has the the southerns in an uproar. He portrays the southern strategy as it is. Control by the few over the ignorant.

MikeyA, it's truly amazing, isn't it? I can't to logon anymore!

wolfman proved my point with his response.

MikeyA

Wait a minute Wolfman, did you even watch the movie? He portrays the "southerns" as you call them as ignorant which is why he uses Hee Haw as a vehicle for the parody. Yet you say Carrey shows the few controlling the ignorant which would mean that the "southerns" are controlling you.

Not only that, but in the last election, "the ignorant" voted to be controlled. Seek, and ye shall find.

Wrong G-Man. In the last election, the so-called ignorant voted to continue hope that America doesn't become a Facist state or a revolution evolves. If the Republicans keep winning the big corporations and the extremly rich will enact laws that will completely destroy the rights of the middle class. A democracy in Germany allowed it to happen and it could happen here. History shows what happened to undo the damage.

Yes the fascists are controlling Michigan. With complete Republican control of the Michigan political scene we see the consequences of one party control. Right-to-work, Emergency Manager and a huge tax shift to the Middle Class and the poor.

Maybe Michigan should vote "Right-to-sit-on your ass" back in.

The people who vote for the candidates who are stealing the rights of the people don't understand what will eventually happen to most of them. They think they are part of this group. In reality, most of them will be used to allow the extremist to have absolute power. The extremist elected officials will eventually abolish democracy and send them to the work camps, or worse, to join everybody else.

From "This is the Hard Core of Freedom" by Elmer T. Peterson in The Daily Oklahoman (9 December 1951)

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the majority discovers it can vote itself largess out of the public treasury. After that, the majority always votes for the candidate promising the most benefits with the result the democracy collapses because of the loose fiscal policy ensuing, always to be followed by a dictatorship, then a monarchy."

Congress not passing a budget for 4 years = "loose fiscal policy"
Raising the debt ceiling again = "loose fiscal policy"

And will "always to be followed by a dictatorship"
Someone who rules by Executive Order.

Sound familier?

Don't blame me,
I didn't vote for a
socialist.

Sounds like the Bush Administration.
