You won’t hear the term “liberal fascism” while listening to Rush Limbaugh or watching FOX News. Yet whenever I tweet about it, I get accused of consuming all my news and information from those two sources. In fact, I watch MSNBC more than FOX News. As a result, I have no doubt that Obama is a liberal fascist.
The core of the Obamanation and today’s Democrat Party is the philosophy of liberal fascism, which has deep roots in progressivism.
They have gone from calling themselves liberals to progressives, no doubt the result of some “branding” study. PC (political correctness) is a cancer which distorts truth and destroys Freedom. When you destroy Freedom, you destroy the Republic.
Liberal Fascism- The Secret History of the American Left, From Mussolini to the Politics of Change [Jonah Goldberg] offers a startling perspective on the theories and practices that define fascist politics. This well researched book destroys the PC myth that fascism is an ideology of the right.JONAH GOLDBERG is a columnist for the Los Angeles Times and contributing editor to National Review. A USA Today contributor and former columnist for the Times of London, he has also written for The New Yorker, Commentary, the Wall Street Journal, and many other publications. He lives in Washington, D.C.
Replacing conveniently manufactured myths with surprising and enlightening research, Jonah Goldberg reminds us that the original fascists were really on the left, and that liberals from Woodrow Wilson to FDR to Hillary Clinton have advocated policies and principles remarkably similar to those of Hitler’s National Socialism and Mussolini’s Fascism.
Contrary to what most people think, the Nazis were ardent socialists (hence the term “National socialism”). They believed in free health care and guaranteed jobs. They confiscated inherited wealth and spent vast sums on public education. They purged the church from public policy, promoted a new form of pagan spirituality, and inserted the authority of the state into every nook and cranny of daily life.
The Nazis declared war on smoking, supported abortion, euthanasia, and gun control. They loathed the free market, provided generous pensions for the elderly, and maintained a strict racial quota system in their universities—where campus speech codes were all the rage. The Nazis led the world in organic farming and alternative medicine. Hitler was a strict vegetarian, and Himmler was an animal rights activist.
Mussolini and Hitler had many admirers in the United States. W.E.B. Du Bois was inspired by Hitler’s Germany, and Irving Berlin praised Mussolini in song. Many fascist tenets were espoused by American progressives like John Dewey and Woodrow Wilson, and FDR incorporated fascist policies in the New Deal.
Fascism was an international movement that appeared in different forms in different countries, depending on the vagaries of national culture and temperament. In Germany, fascism appeared as genocidal racist nationalism. In America, it took a “friendlier,” more liberal form. The modern heirs of this “friendly fascist” tradition include the New York Times, the Democratic Party, the Ivy League professoriate, and the liberals of Hollywood. The quintessential Liberal Fascist isn’t an SS storm trooper; it is a female grade school teacher with an education degree from Brown or Swarthmore.
These assertions sound strange to modern ears because the liberal controlled education system does not teach the truth. The left has control of the academic establishment. They reinvented the history and meaning of fascism.
Do yourself a favor and read the book. Jonah Goldberg turns the commonly held preconceptions inside out and shows us the true meaning of Liberal Fascism.
You can’t understand the Obamanation unless you understand the roots of their liberal fascist ideology. Modern Progressives (Democrats) practice “lying for justice”. The enemies of the common good must be forced to bend to the general will.
Crisis is the core mechanism of fascism because it short circuits debate and democratic deliberation. It’s in Obama’s best interest to prolong our economic crisis. In fact, it got him re-elected.
Mussolinni said that faith moves mountains, not reason. “Reason is a tool but it can never be the motive force of the crowd.” Liberal fascism is the religion of the Obamanation.
The Fascist moment in Western Civilization began with a coalition of progressives, communists and socialists who wanted to rid us of religion and constitutional liberty. Fascism was from the beginning a movement of the left.
If you read this book with an open mind, you will shift from “Fascism can’t happen in America” to the realization that “It has already happened here.”
Courage is almost a contradiction in terms. It means a strong desire to live taking the form of readiness to die.
As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself. Freedom is never free. We will not dishonor those fought so so we could live in a free nation. Progressives are the enemy of liberty and freedom.
