If you search Wesbter’s dictionary for ‘fascism,’ this is the first definition:
- (sometimes initial capital letter) a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism.
- an authoritarian and nationalistic right-wing system of government and social organization.
Just by this difference alone I think there is some obvious tomfoolery going on. Someone is trying to erase the appearance fascism. But why would anyone want to do that? Why would anyone change the definition of a negative word so that it was very specific and could not be attributed to them? Because then you can’t have that conversation; the control, the manipulation, the corruption, surely if a definition specifically negates them personally from it, they cannot possible be bad when they show all the symptoms, right? And if someone can’t possibly be bad because there’s no way that term would ever apply to them, then we don’t need to have that conversation, right? So shut up!
There have been multiple essays written with names like “Fourteen Defining Characteristics of Fascism.” If you Google the phrase, you’ll find plenty, but here’s the list and what liberal fascism looks like right now:
- Powerful and Continuing Nationalism
While leftists aren’t battling for American nationalism, they are certainly pursuing foreign nationalism in their own country. During this election season we have seen liberal individuals and the media standing beside, aiding criminal behavior by Mexican nationalists who attacked Americans on American soil while simultaneously defending nationalists from Muslim countries after they attacked Americans. It’s still nationalism, even if you’re defending the nationalism of another nation.
- Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights
There are many examples of liberals trying to pass laws against basic human rights in the name of ‘safety’ or making people feel better about themselves ‘for your own good.’ Some blatant examples are ‘hate speech’ laws and people fighting against gun rights. They tend to confuse privileges with rights. A right is something you are born with such as the ability to speak and defend yourself. A right is not something that taxes someone else such as free healthcare. Everyone is not not born with health care and free college.
- Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause
Know what the unifying cause/scapegoat is? The fucking white male! Couldn’t be more obvious when a first insult to shut people down or dispose of their opinion is, “You can’t talk to me. You’re a white male. You don’t know anything,” or “violence and rape are caused by the white male!” Really? Really? There is also a focus on how conservatives are the ultimate evil.
- Supremacy of the Military
In the 14 characteristics of fascism, it mentions military being overpowering and glamorized. What I see is the left building their own military through Black Lives Matter and Islam. When BLM is praised for the murder of police. When our president stands beside cop killers while criticizing cops at the vigil for their own fallen? That’s glamorization and BLM has and is militarizing itself. Note: It’s not just people who care about the murder of blacks who ‘support’ this group.
- Rampant Sexism
See point #3. The left has embarrassed this extremist thing called third wave feminism that is all about removing men and changing them into women. It’s okay if a woman beats a man, but if a man so much as looks at a woman, it’s rape. Some women are calling for maternity leave pay without having a baby. Women are not held to the same legal standards as men; if a woman rapes a man, he is blamed, called a fag, or laughed at. Divorce statistics strongly side against men, even in cases where the mother is irresponsible and bad. The left is harboring misandry in the guise of ‘social justice’ and ‘equality.’
- Controlled Mass Media
- Obsession with National Security
The original article says, “fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.” The left has an obsession with dismantling national security by opening all borders and flooding the country with people from other countries while giving our secrets and power over to our biggest enemies–Consider the aim to give China and Russia power over AMERICAN internet and censorship. It creates fear among local minority families that they will all be removed, even if they are here legally and from this fear, the government seizes control of them.
- Religion and Government are Intertwined
I’d say you got me there, but the left takes science so seriously that it can be considered a religion. People actually want to imprison people for denying global warming. Science isn’t religion, it never should be, but to jail someone for having different beliefs or opinions regarding scientific theories creates a religion-esc climate.
- Corporate Power is Protected
Who are the top supporters of the left’s extreme measures? BIG companies. The left is also pushing to raise the minimum wage dramatically and guess what that would do? It would shut down all small businesses, all mom and pop shops that can’t afford a $15 minimum wage and all that would be left behind is corporate power to call all the shots.
- Labor Power is Suppressed
I can’t say I know much about unions in the United States other than the people I know who are in them have trouble getting raises, they have job restrictions, and basically the union takes money and gives them nothing back. To strike some kind of parallel, a union is an assembly of people who are supposed to discuss better terms for the care of the people and negotiate with employers on how to get that done. The right to assemble (in clubs, venues, special events) has been heavily encroached upon by the left, during the last few years especially. Things have been shut down from large riots, i.e. in Chicago over Donald Trump’s rally to small meetings in schools that were ended by ‘diversity students’ who wouldn’t stop yelling long enough for a discussion to happen to special events paid for by clubs, with security, that were again, shut down by students who didn’t like the event.
- Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts
Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like when I see someone say, “facts are an invention by the white man to keep people down,” there’s a major disdain for intellect. When I see people screaming, blowing whistles, and banging drums instead of having intelligent discourse about different opinions, I think there’s a disdain for intelligence. When the common response to questions about one’s belief is, “fuck you,” I think there’s a disdain for intelligence. When squatting dripping menstrual blood onto a canvas is considered just as masterful (if not more so) than art that takes years to learn to craft well and time/effort to prepare, I think there’s a disdain for art.
Art is not anything you make with your hands. Art is purposeful; art takes skill; art can be beautiful or disgusting; strange, inventive, revolutionary, but pissing in a jar and putting it on a pedestal is not art. It is the destruction of art and it floods society, burying thought and meaning with literal pieces of shit.
- Obsession with Crime and Punishment
We witness this obsession daily on the internet with random people calling for the punishment, the ruined life, of people who have committed ‘thoughtcrimes’. We witness ridiculous witch hunts for the private information of someone who may have said something a stranger considers ‘offensive.” It’s not the job of some rando on the internet to release an individual from their job, threaten their family, and have their house raided by government officials because they said something mean on the internet. Yet they have also appointed themselves as the new court of social media. Their excuse? “Freedom of speech does not mean freedom from consequence.” –But it’s not up to the individual or the community mob to decide who to lynch and what words are worth lynching people over.
- Rampant Cronyism and Corruption
Does the left need any bigger a spokesperson for this than Hillary Rodham Clinton? We have literally witnessed this very thing take place at the highest level over the last few months in regard to her treason, the emails, and Benghazi to name a few issues. FirstName Comey himself said that she had broken the law, he said that if it were anyone else who did what she did, they would be tried and arrested for the highest level of treason. Loretta Lynch, before the decision, met with Bill Clinton, and then said she cleared her. Our current president, Barack Obama, while running against Clinton in 2012, said she was a compulsive liar. That she was the most unfit person for presidency and then said he endorses her this year. Their betrayal and corruption has been beyond transparent to the American people and has only been getting clearer since the beginning of the primaries. Want to know more about Clinton’s corruption? Watch Clinton Cash for a quick rundown.
- Fraudulent Elections
Again, looking at you Clinton. Most of the United States would not argue that they believe the democratic primary was rigged. There are tons of news articles from both liberal and conservative media outlets saying the same thing, but fraudulent election goes beyond that. By definition in the original fascism article, fraudulent election includes smear campaigns and assassination attempts on the opposition paid for by the corrupt party, use of legislation to control voting numbers, and media manipulation. And all of these things have been showcased again and again by the left during this election cycle.
If you look back in history, you can see the ‘bad guys’ alternating between being the left and the right. Usually it’s whoever has power at the time because power corrupts people. Right now, I believe, the left in power has become a corrupt fascist regime.
By making strict definitions for evil such as ‘fascism can only be right-wing fanatics’, you really create a barrier around people who behave the same way, showing bias and allowing corruption to take over. In 5, 10, or 20 years, I could be writing about the right-wing being a fascist regime. I don’t care what you call yourself, I care about the actions that represent who you are and what you believe. To say that liberals can’t be fascist is the same as saying a black person can’t be racist.
It’s not a left vs. right issue; it’s not a liberal vs. conservative issue; it’s not an us vs. them issue. It’s a good vs. evil issue and you cannot fight evil if you refuse to recognize it.
