Gotcher Fascism Right Here

LiberalFascismOne of the deficiencies many on the left have is their lack understanding of fascism. It is, of course, a socialist movement. Benito Mussolini was a socialist. Adolph Hitler led the National Socialist Workers’ Party. The idea that fascism is “right wing” is a myth perpetrated by Joseph Stalin as a means of demonizing his socialist competition.

Jonah Goldberg wrote an excellent history of how fascism fits in with its sister movements on the left. You can buy a copy of Liberal Fascism from Amazon. Click here.

UPDATE—Of course, not everyone appreciates Mr. Goldberg’s scholarship.

TheDoctrineofFascismThose individuals might need to go to a primary source. I recommend The Doctrine of Fascism by Benito Mussolini as a good starting point for the study of fascist thought.

During that discussion, he made representations to me about his plan for his Internet presence going forward. I told him that, if he followed that plan, there would be no reason to follow through with my peace order petition. I encouraged him to pursue the course he outlined. I asked him to give me a reason to drop the matter, and we shook hands.

ISIS threatens to destroy Chicago and Americans shrug

Posted by DNW on 2014/08/22

 

“E Pluribus Unum” no more.

WGNtv Chicago posts the alarming “news” that ISIS has the destruction of Chicago in its sights.

And Americans fed up with the totalitarian collectivists and moral nihilist appetite entities of the left who have already eaten away at not only our civilization but at our heritage of liberties, react with a shrug at the notion of the mayor of chicago trapped in the flaming ruins of the ecological niche his leftist ambition fouls and undermines.

We recall of course  that some 13 years ago progressive propagandist and cherished celebrity, His Rotundity Michael Moore, infamously set the stage for the spread of this attitude, when he asked in dismay why the Muslims had to attack New York, a liberal metropolis, rather than some conservative heartland site.

Gee, if the terrorists had just murdered conservative Christians, then Michael Moore could have understood, and maybe even sympathized.

Yeah Michael you submoral dog. So much for E Pluribus Unum, eh?

Well, thirteen years into it, those Americans who still value liberty and self-direction have gotten so used to the homicidal malice of the collectivist class, that they now, in turn, shrug at the thought of the collectivists themselves being destroyed by morally alien forces.

The underlying question is: What do you actually lose, when a malevolent parasite which has attached itself to you through your own long suffering tolerance and forbearance, is swept away by another?

Many have noticed that modern liberalism and Islamism are both anti-liberty of conscience, socially fascistic, and legally totalitarian ideologies. Many freedom loving Americans, less naive than their parents and grandparents, are apparently now prepared to stand back and watch “Hitler “and “Stalin” destroy each other; even if the war takes place on our own soil.

The question of whether the destruction would have unstoppably catastrophic side effects aside, it’s hard to blame a free man for shrugging at the destruction of those emotionalists who are, and have been, working for decades to destroy his freedom and ultimately his life.

What has a free man got to lose, when one flavor of collectivist is killed by another?

 

 

UPDATE:

Now here is something puzzling: the comments don’t seem to load up from the WGNtv link above anymore. Nor from the old (earlier today) history link, nor from internal links in the web page I preserved .

So, as a fair comment proof of this post’s contention, I shall quote a few of the more temperate comments below. Recognizable personal names are redacted, and discernibly racist crackpot bigotry is deleted.

    • J********a

      Dear Chicago,
      God forbid that you should fry like so many little french fries caught in the searing heat of a deep fryer. But, if you do, remember it was you and your kin that put Obama in office. You gave us a slug of a president whose ability in foreign affairs is zero to none.
      I will feel sorry for you later, because right now I can’t.

      w*****9

      Chicago goes up and this president must be removed before he takes the rest of the country down Impeachment and removal. He has clearly shown a total disregard for the security of this country and dares play golf at a time of crisis. Unfortunately, with ISIS here, possibly, we will need to employ every weapon at our disposal to eliminate them and their threat. Without security, what good is anything.

      1Yousuck

      perfect target! beautiful poetic justice!

      make no mistake. obama, democrats, libs, etc…truly believe in the undoing of Aimerican pride, power, success, etc…and a much more destructive and impoverished world is the natural result, when you undercut a free people.

      so, let the reaping of their sowing be true. these dark-hearted people are intent on allowing more evil, and letting it come here. therefore, let it come upon them FIRST!

      my prayer since obama’s first election has been simple: let ALL them that voted for him reap to the fullest, what they have sown: social degradation (ferguson), economic failure (unemployment, welfarism), and ground zero as the next terrorist attack (chicago)

       

      gunnyginalaska

      Dear ISIS, if you can’t hit Sh*tcago, might I suggest other cities like Oakland, SF, Trenton, Filthadelphia, Camden, Detoilet, or any other city full of liberals will work.

      *****

      Chicago and their corrupt leftist progressive politician’s polices and the “peaceful” muslims who live among them deserve each other.

      Iraq/Afg Vet

      Most Americans don’t have the stomach for what it would take to truly rid the world of this cancer. Rules of Engagement, the enemy using human shields and hiding in schools, religious temples and mosques all make any operation dicey, and open to scrutiny by those too meek to even take part — but not afraid to arm-chair QB. Once again, the U.S. is alone because our allies in Europe don’t have the stones to do what is needed. Once again, we will inevitably come to the rescue and risk our troops, spend our money and resources, and bear the burden of fighting another terrorist group in someone else’s backyard — while the rest of the world does nothing but judge. The only way to rid the world of these guys is to take them head on with severe malice. No more of the ticky-tack, PC, inoffensive stuff. Either we go in guns blazing and with bad intentions, or we sit out and tell the rest of the world to figure it out.

      Psalmon

      1. Sickens me to hear O talk about Justice for anyone who harms Americans, when he does nothing on Benghazi
      2. John Kerry our SOS keeps claiming Climate Change is our #1 threat

      These guys are almost bigger lunatics than ISIS.

‘No different than supporting ISIS': Libs work to take down fundraising page for Officer Darren Wilson

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2014/08/22

John Hitchcock:

Innocent until proven guilty? Freedom of speech and association? Not among America’s Left today. And a police officer shooting a violent Felon is exactly like a terrorist organization beheading a journalist. Such brainless twits on the Left.

Originally posted on Twitchy:

Shaun King, founder of Upfront Media Group, is leading the charge to have a GoFundMe page supporting Ferguson, Mo., Officer Darren Wilson taken down.

“This page has been created to support Officer Darren Wilson of the Ferguson Police Department,” reads the page. “We stand behind Officer Darren Wilson and his family during this trying time in their lives. All proceeds will be sent directly to Darren Wilson and his family for any financial needs they may have including legal fees.”

King claims the fundraiser violates GoFundMe’s terms of service, calling it “a thin veil for people rewarding Wilson for killing a black kid.”

Federal judge orders DOJ to release Fast and Furious documents

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2014/08/21

John Hitchcock:

Remember when Barack Obama said they have things in the background to increase gun-control laws (which would further violate our Second Amendment rights)? Remember when the media were giddily reporting how many Mexicans died in Mexico due to guns from the US? Remember how the Obama Federal Government were forcing law-abiding gun dealers in the southwest to sell to straw-buyers the gun dealers knew were illegal to sell to (in the guise of a sting operation)? Remember how those Fast and Furious guns were allowed to cross the border without tracking and found their way into drug cartels’ hands? Remember how over 200 Mexicans and 2 Law Enforcement Officers were gunned down using these guns? Remember how the mainstream media suddenly shut up about gun deaths in Mexico related to guns coming from US? Remember how Obama, Holder, and the Democrat machine was all “shut up”? Yeah, about that…

Originally posted on Twitchy:

Today, United States District Judge Amy Berman Jackson ordered that the Department of Justice must turn over a log of withheld Fast and Furious documents by October 1.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., issued the following statement:

Today a Federal judge ordered that the Department of Justice must submit by October 1 a privilege log of withheld documents related to Operation Fast and Furious.  I am grateful and pleased by that.  This Administration has been so intent on hiding the contents of these documents that it allowed Attorney General Holder to be held in contempt instead of just turning them over to Congress.  The privilege log will bring us closer to finding out why the Justice Department hid behind false denials in the wake of reckless conduct that contributed to the violent deaths of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and countless Mexican citizens.

Justifiably killing Michael Brown

Posted by DNW on 2014/08/19

One of the issues we have had to confront over and over again in the political wrangles over how we shall live under law together, if indeed we shall continue to do so, is the issue of wildly differing personal boundaries.

It’s clear that liberals on the one side and libertarians and conservatives on the other have what appear to be very different and even antithetical psychological and perhaps even organic expectations and requirements.

Think back to the days of liberal rage and hope in the 1960s and 1970s. Their anthems, their secular prayers, their hopes and dreams were full of collectivist and “community” yearnings. Yeah, some of it was conscious communism, watered down so as to seem humanistic and full of feeling, but, I think, much of it represented their natural yearnings. “No man is an island”, “Attention must be paid!”, “unconditional love” and I will lay me down for you like a bridge over troubled waters, yada yada yada.

Give me a moment … I can’t effen breathe in the humidity generated by that last series of liberal-mentality quotes.

Ok, so anyway the interpenetrative masochism, so to the taste of the left – the experience of which both convinces the leftist it has a “right” to exist while adding a fillip of sexually perverse excitement to his politics – is what sets the leftist anthropoid apart from morally redeemable human beings. The craving for submission and suffering simply cannot be unwound from the leftist DNA. It is after all, what makes them what they are, and is why they behave in the way they do.

In line with this, has anyone noticed that few if any have asked if the shop clerk who was assaulted and battered by Michael Brown would have been morally justified in standing his ground and killing Brown if necessary?

Where did Michael Brown presumptively derive the right to lay hands on another with impunity?

The man he assaulted was in fact small, and seemed to offer little if any resistance to Brown’s attack. But under what theory of law was he, dog-like, obligated not to do so? When did we reach the point in this country when an inoffensive person is considered morally bound to accept a battering or maiming for the sake of the well-being of a malicious and battering offender? How exactly is this equation rendered?

 

Here is an interesting video. Would it have been right and just for this woman to have killed her assailant? After all, she didn’t die herself.

Now our friend Michael Brown, this is a picture of Michael Brown below, did not break down a bolted door in order to beat the living shit out of a mother in front of her terrified daughter.

Brown from various sources

No, Michael Brown allegedly but feloniously robbed the Ferguson Market and Liquor store and assaulted – and technically battered – the employee.

 

Brown assaults employee while robbing store

And then when Michael was allegedly finished robbing and assaulting at the market, he went strolling down the middle of the traffic lanes of a nearby street; whereupon, he assaulted – allegedly – a passing police officer who had asked him to stop blocking traffic and move to the sidewalk.

Now to put the cherry on top so to speak, he allegedly battered this police officer, tried to take away the cop’s gun, and then after a shot was discharged in the struggle over possession of the cop’s weapon, he briefly ran from the fracas he had started. He then, reportedly, turned about (was this guy channeling Trayvon?) taunted, and then charged at the cop.

Well, let’s place all the “alleged” material off to the side as provisional, as bracketed, and to this point hypothetical. And let’s consider the scenario in a hypothetical worst case scenario way; and here’s the big problem remaining.

Do grant for the sake of argument – and to this moment only for the sake of argument – that Michael Brown did indeed feloniously steal 50 bucks worth of cigars in a brazen strong arm robbery wherein he also assaulted and technically battered an employee. Grant further that he then sauntered down the middle of a public street interfering with traffic and thereby attracting the attention of a police officer who asked him to move out of the traffic lane and onto the walkway.

Further grant – for the sake of argument only – that Michael Brown did in fact refuse to do move out of the traffic lane, and attacked the cop in his car when the cop subsequently pulled up ahead in order to deal with the situation on foot. Grant also that Michael Brown battered the cop’s face. Grant that Michael Brown tried to take the officer’s weapon, and shoot the officer with it, only running off when he failed.

Grant that after Brown ran a short distance, he turned about after some modest number of feet, faced the cop who was ordering him to stop, and then taunted the cop: finally, charging him in order to … well Michael Brown only knows.

Amazingly in doing this, you have to grant felony robbery, and felony assault on a police officer; and probably attempted murder.

Yet if you grant all of that, and apparently some do even on Michael’s side, here is the problem remaining. Michael Brown’s apologists still don’t think that the police response was appropriate.

Now would they possibly alternatively concede that it would have been appropriate for the puny little store clerk to have killed Brown with a weapon, if, say, the preservation of clerk’s own bodily integrity while under active assault and battery, had depended on it?

No, I am convinced most on the left would not.

And I think we have good evidence for this conclusion: Trayvon Martin. After the bloodied face and skull of Zimmerman was finally shown, after it was eventually geometrically demonstrated that if Trayvon’s so-called girlfriend was to be believed at all, then Trayvon had had to have doubled back on Zimmerman in order to confront and attack him; even after the slim drink business; even after the burglar tools; even after the other fights and assaults … none of it mattered.

And not only to his family did it not matter, but neither to elderly white leftist provocation specialist trash like Perry Hood, or now our erstwhile commenter John The Liberal of American Liberal Times blog.

You might think that these moral miscreants are deliberately trying to cause a social Armageddon. But the more likely explanation is that they just don’t care, or are incapable of caring, about the truth.

Because in the final analysis, Michael Brown’s most ardent apologists, of whatever color or ethnic makeup, are simply moral aliens, people who have and who recognize no boundaries at all when it comes to satisfying their urges and wants, but who expect that those upon whom they impose, wheedle,  and often violently prey, will always submit.

Moral alien activists expect that they, or their social pets at least, may rape and plunder and assault, and that the victims will properly respond with unending and self-destructive restraint: all the better to abide the very rules which the Michael Browns and Trayvon Martins and Bill Ayers of the world sneer at. In other words they expect that all men will act like the pathetic and contemptible masochists we know as old white liberal males.

It is clear enough that we know who is actually doing the dying as a result of this poisonous attitude and psychology.

Maybe we should ask from a more broadly moral perspective, who really should be.

A moment of reflection …

Posted by DNW on 2014/08/19

I’ve taken a backward glance at a number of the posts I have put up in recent months, and noticed what has become a recurring theme for me: the intellectual and moral bankruptcy of the everyday left and its mouthpieces.

I also notice that in choosing the most plainspoken and idiomatic terms available, I have repeatedly labeled their condition “stupidity”.

Now, this “Dishonest stupidity of everyday Progressives” business, is not a theme I have intentionally chosen to harp on. It is simply the result of watching what everyday progressives do, of listening carefully (and dispassionately above all else) to what they themselves say, and of then evaluating the narrative they are putting forth for (presumably) our consumption, for its logical coherence, evidence of intellectual integrity, and overall sense.

It is startling to reflect that in the process of reviewing so many different progressives’ work for intellectual coherence and truth value, I have been inexorably led to the same end-point; a place wherein I was confronted with the obvious:  that progressives habitually lie, are untroubled by their lying and duplicity, and that they are not even very clever in doing it.

Katie Halper, John The Liberal, Benjamin Crump, progressives big and small, public and not so public, they are all essentially the same ends-justify-the-means types who live in a world of moral convenience: one which they ultimately strive to order for their emotional comfort and satisfaction.

Ann Coulter sometime ago commented that despite the progressive’s constant talk of intelligence as if it were a cardinal if not the supreme, moral virtue, they seem to be quite deficient when it comes to exercising it themselves or in applying that intelligence standard to members of their political client class.

And perhaps that is the key, and why I placed the word “presumably” in parentheses when I said above that progressives were speaking for “our consumption”. They really are not. The progressives are not trying to convince us. Instead, as David Horowitz had made himself blue in the face pointing out, their rhetoric is not designed to convince us of the validity of their reasoning, so much as to wage social war upon us by manipulating emotionally immature, and mentally limited third parties.

Knowing their own herd then,  given who they themselves are, what they value, and who it is that aligns with them, they know that they need not be careful, accurate, or truthful; and that emotion and sarcasm serve their ends better than reason.

As their chosen audience has presumptively little or nothing in the way of critical faculties or genuine knowledge, they need not trouble themselves too much when it comes to arousing them.

“Stupid”, may not be the most artful word to describe the moral and intellectual bankruptcy of political progressives. But apart from terms such as “nihilist”, “self-serving hypocrite”, or “evil”, it seems upon consideration, to be the most accurate.
