Truth Before Dishonor

I would rather be right than popular

Hey, Liberals, Riddle Me This

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/06/18


Radical Leftists love to claim Social Conservatives, Fiscal Conservatives, National Defense Conservatives, Neoconservatives, TEA Party Conservatives are fascists, with fascism being a massive top-down totalitarian central government ruling over everyone’s life. So, I have a few questions.

Who is it that supports mandatory conscription into the US military, including mandatory conscription of women?
Who is it that supports an all-volunteer US military?

Who is it that supports the mandatory purchase of a product?
Who is it that supports the right not to purchase a product?

Who is it that tells a business owner he is not permitted to have a smoking section in his place of business?
Who is it that wants the business owner to decide for himself whether to allow smoking in his place of business?

Who is it that mandates the level of salt in food?
Who is it that wants restaurant owners and restaurant patrons to decide the level of salt in the food through the Free Market?

Who is it that tells a restaurant it is not permitted to supply a toy with its food?
Who is it that wants that restaurant to decide that for itself?

Who is it that wants to make circumcision a crime?
Who is it that wants the parents to be able to decide for themselves?

Who is it that wants to prevent parents the opportunity to decide their own children’s education, while pushing state-run education?
Who is it that wants parents to have more control over their own children’s education and the State to have less control?

Who is it that pushes daily for massive totalitarian central government and the stripping of Freedom from the people?
Who is it that pushes daily for Limited Government and autonomy for the people?

Sorry, radical Leftists. As usual, when the facts are laid out, you lose.

  1. Good stuff.
    I imagine it won’t be long before the Marxists and the socialists and the fascists simply stop with the word games and call themselves by name.
    Some in fact already do own what they are.

  2. It is interesting, isn’t it, that the Socialists, Marxists, Communists, racists (“La Raza” is Spanish for “The Race”), totalitarianists all march alongside Democrats. But I don’t see the Socialist Democrat politicians actually dropping their masks intentionally anytime soon. Maxine Waters I think it was, or that Liberal from Houston, accidentally dropped her mask in committee when she said her goal was the socialist government takeover of Big Oil. (She caught herself midstream but still didn’t actually correct herself.)

    Uhh, no we don’t.

    Well, yes you do, because as John says he has the facts on his side.

    What facts?

    The facts above.

    Where?

    Right above, that’s where!

    Those aren’t facts.

    They certainly are facts. For example it is members of the left who can be demonstrated by their own words as pushing universal conscription in the name of some social solidarity and justice pimping exercise.

    That’s just how you see it. We see it as a matter of fairness and collective responsibility. There is no coercion involved anymore than your payment of social security taxes involves coercion.

    But you are obviously establishing a preference for authoritarian control over the principle of preserving individual liberty.

    Individual? What individual?

    ” … with fascism being a massive top-down totalitarian central government ruling over everyone’s life …”

    Members of the political left have tried to variously redefine Fascism more to their liking; generally with the intention it is readily apparent, of reserving the term’s polemical utility for themselves.

    In order to do so they have had to try and figure out (unsuccessfully) a way of preventing the term’s core social meaning and known fascist sociopolitical doctrines from being turned around and identified with them, with their anti-voluntary association attitudes and their social insurance mandate principles.

    “The Fascist principle is Liberty in private, Obligation in public life. In his public capacity a man must behave as befits a citizen and a member of the State; his actions must conform to the interests of the State, which protects and governs him and guarantees his personal freedom. In private he may behave as he likes …

    Every man shall be a member of the State, giving his public life to the State, but claiming in return his private life and liberty from the State, and enjoying it within the Corporate purpose of the State. ”

    Oswald Mosley, British Union of Fascists

    Notice too the use of the term “corporate”; and how it becomes obvious thereby, that the terms corporate and corporatism as used by fascists – refer to Wiki for confirmation on “Corporatism” if you feel you must – refer not to business corporations but instead to a concept of the social collective viewed as one organized, if not organic, body.
