Liberal Fascism Dishonors Those Who Fought to Keep America Free

 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.

GOD BLESS THEM & GOD BLESS AMERICA

Liberal Fascism - Core of a Fordham University Education

The Fordham College Republicans recently invited Ann Coulter to speak on campus. 

Fordham University is a private, nonprofit, coeducational research university in the United States, with three main campuses located in and around New York City. It was founded by the Roman Catholic Diocese of New York in 1841 as St. John’s College, placed in the care of the Society of Jesus shortly thereafter, and has since become an independent institution under a lay Board of Trustees, which describes the University as “in the Jesuit tradition.” 

The Jesuit priest blasts Coulter’s message as “hateful and needlessly provocative — more heat than light” and says “her message is aimed squarely at the darker side of our nature.”

University President Joseph M. McShane to the student body in which he strongly rebuked the school’s College Republicans group for booking conservative columnist Ann Coulter to speak on campus later this month, ultimately concluding that despite her “repugnant” speech the university will allow the event so as to uphold the university’s “tradition of fearless and robust engagement.”

McShane notes that Fordham has been blighted by ugly racial and homophobic incidents in the last few years, and he laments the lack of “maturity” shown by his young campus Republicans in inviting the provocateur Coulter.

Fordham President Father Joseph McShane’s reply to the invitation is printed in full below.

The College Republicans, a student club at Fordham University, invited Ann Coulter to speak on campus on November 29. The event is funded through student activity fees and is not open to the public nor the media. Student groups are allowed, and encouraged, to invite speakers who represent diverse, and sometimes unpopular, points of view, in keeping with the canons of academic freedom. Accordingly, the University will not block the College Republicans from hosting their speaker of choice on campus.

To say that I am disappointed with the judgment and maturity of the College Republicans, however, would be a tremendous understatement. There are many people who can speak to the conservative point of view with integrity and conviction, but Ms. Coulter is not among them. Her rhetoric is often hateful and needlessly provocative — more heat than light — and her message is aimed squarely at the darker side of our nature.

As members of a Jesuit institution, we are called upon to deal with one another with civility and compassion, not to sling mud and impugn the motives of those with whom we disagree or to engage in racial or social stereotyping. In the wake of several bias incidents last spring, I told the University community that I hold out great contempt for anyone who would intentionally inflict pain on another human being because of their race, gender, sexual orientation, or creed.

“Disgust” was the word I used to sum up my feelings about those incidents. Hate speech, name-calling, and incivility are completely at odds with the Jesuit ideals that have always guided and animated Fordham.

Still, to prohibit Ms. Coulter from speaking at Fordham would be to do greater violence to the academy, and to the Jesuit tradition of fearless and robust engagement. Preventing Ms. Coulter from speaking would counter one wrong with another. The old saw goes that the answer to bad speech is more speech. This is especially true at a university, and I fully expect our students, faculty, alumni, parents, and staff to voice their opposition, civilly and respectfully, and forcefully.

The College Republicans have unwittingly provided Fordham with a test of its character: do we abandon our ideals in the face of repugnant speech and seek to stifle Ms. Coulter’s (and the student organizers’) opinions, or do we use her appearance as an opportunity to prove that our ideas are better and our faith in the academy — and one another — stronger? We have chosen the latter course, confident in our community and in the power of decency and reason to overcome hatred and prejudice.

Joseph M. McShane, S.J., President

Caving in to the pressure from McShane, the faculty who determines their graduation future, and liberal fascist Editor at large Joan Walsh from Salon Magazine , the young Republicans pulled the plug on Coulter.   

Walsh wrote in Salon, But now the Fordham College Republicans have invited Ann Coulter, who outdoes Karl Rove (barely, these days) in the department of divisiveness and meanness. I had a moment of regretting the mega-dollars I spent on Fordham – even though I know the clubs are free to invite whomever they like, within reason (although this tests reason). Then I saw Fordham President Father Joseph McShane’s terrific reply, which I’m printing in full.

Salon is a progressive liberal online magazine.  Salon’s headquarters is located west of downtown San Francisco, California.  As of November 2010, its editor-in-chief is Kerry Lauerman. His predecessor Joan Walsh stepped down from that position in November 2010 but remained as editor at large. 

The College Republicans issued the following statement:

From the College Republicans:

The College Republicans regret the controversy surrounding our planned lecture featuring Ann Coulter. The size and severity of opposition to this event have caught us by surprise and caused us to question our decision to welcome her to Rose Hill. Looking at the concerns raised about Ms. Coulter, many of them reasonable, we have determined that some of her comments do not represent the ideals of the College Republicans and are inconsistent with both our organization’s mission and the University’s. We regret that we failed to thoroughly research her before announcing; that is our error and we do not excuse ourselves for it. Consistent with our strong disagreement with certain comments by Ms. Coulter, we have chosen to cancel the event and rescind Ms. Coulter’s invitation to speak at Fordham. We made this choice freely before Father McShane’s email was sent out and we became aware of his feelings – had the President simply reached out to us before releasing his statement, he would have learned that the event was being cancelled. We hope the University community will forgive the College Republicans for our error and continue to allow us to serve as its main voice of the sensible, compassionate, and conservative political movement that we strive to be. We fell short of that standard this time, and we offer our sincere apologies.

Who is this horrible person who has been banned from Fordham University?  After all, third world dictators and the likes of MSNBC Obama Propaganda Chief Correspondent Chris Matthews are welcome at Fordham.

Ann Hart Coulter was born in New York City on December 8, 1961, to John Vincent Coulter, a native of Albany, New York, and Nell Husbands Coulter (née Martin), a native of Paducah, Kentucky. The family later moved to New Canaan, Connecticut, where Coulter and her two older brothers, James and John, were raised.  She graduated from New Canaan High School in 1980.

While attending Cornell University, Coulter helped found The Cornell Review, and was a member of the Delta Gamma national women’s fraternity. She graduated cum laude from Cornell in 1984 with a B.A. in history, and received her J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School in 1988, where she achieved membership in the Order of the Coif, and was an editor of the Michigan Law Review. At Michigan, Coulter was president of the local chapter of the Federalist Society and was trained at the National Journalism Center.

After law school, Coulter served as a law clerk, in Kansas City, for Pasco Bowman II of the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit.  After a short time working in New York City in private practice, where she specialized in corporate law, Coulter left to work for the United States Senate Judiciary Committee after the Republican Party took control of Congress in 1994. She handled crime and immigration issues for Senator Spencer Abraham of Michigan and helped craft legislation designed to expedite the deportation of aliens convicted of felonies. She later became a litigator with the Center for Individual Rights.

Coulter’s career is highlighted by the publication of eight books, as well as the weekly syndicated newspaper column that she publishes.  She has been compared to Clare Boothe Luce, one of her idols, for her satirical style. She also makes numerous public appearances, speaking on television and radio talk shows, as well as on college campuses, receiving both praise and protest. In 2010, she made an estimated $500,000 on the speaking circuit, giving speeches on topics of modern conservatism, gay marriage, and what she perceives to be liberal hypocrisy.

FU (Fordham University) proves once again that the American higher education system is controlled by liberal fascist Progressives. Academic freedom in America applies to liberals, progressives, communists, socialista and even anarchists but NOT conservatives.

But to be clear, Fordham University was not always a liberal fascist institution of higher learning. Liberal yes, fascist no.

In the midst of the Watergate furor in the early 1970’s, a  Fordham University newspaper learned that President Richard Nixon was invited to speak at the Fordham Preparatory school, located on the University’s Bronx campus.

One of the newspaper’s opinion writers wrote a column telling students to protest by laying their bodies down on the school’s accessory road so the motorcade couldn’t arrive

Rita Ciolli, the editor of the campus paper, I splashed the column across the front page. Nixon never did come, but any satisfaction in that was short-lived when one of my Jesuit professors took me aside, and in the order’s inimitable fashion, began a dialogue about what harm would have come from hearing Nixon speak?

Ciolli writes in Long Island Newsday , It was a question that was never forgotten, a lesson compounded by a Jesuit legal education, that is most likely at the root of my absolutist view of the First Amendment.

Unfortunately, that view is not shared by the Progressives in America today.  The Democrats are coming after both your First AND Second Amendment rights, to advance their political agenda. 

Elections have consequences.  It’s only just begun.

We Have Found the Enemy. It is US

3 million GOP voters who went to the polls in 2008 and voted for McCain, decided to stay home in 2012. Don’t blame the Libertarians. Don’t blame the liberal fascists. It’s a free country. They exercised their First Amendment rights and they VOTED! The country got what we deserved. Shame on those of you who did not vote. You have forfeited your right to cry or complain over the next four years. Get your shit together and save yourselves and the future of your children and their children.

Obama's First Post Election Move is to Come for Your Firearms

Obama decided to set the tone of his second term before all the votes were counted.  Obama is coming after your firearms.  Obama knows that tyranny can’t succeed if the people are armed.  Disarming law abiding citizens is now Job #1 of the Liberal Fascist Obamanation.

Just hours after Obama was re-elected, the United States backed a U.N. committee’s call on Wednesday to renew debate over a draft international treaty to regulate the $70 billion global conventional arms trade.

U.N. delegates and gun control activists have complained that talks collapsed in July largely because Obama feared attacks from Republican rival Mitt Romney if his administration was seen as supporting the pact, a charge Washington denies.

The month-long talks at U.N. headquarters broke off after the United States - along with Russia and other major arms producers - said it had problems with the draft treaty and asked for more time.

But the U.N. General Assembly’s disarmament committee moved quickly after Obama’s win to approve a resolution calling for a new round of talks March 18-28. It passed with 157 votes in favor, none against and 18 abstentions.

U.S. officials have acknowledged privately that the treaty under discussion would have no effect on domestic gun sales and ownership because it would apply only to exports.

The main reason the arms trade talks are taking place at all is that the United States - the world’s biggest arms trader accounting for more than 40 percent of global conventional arms transfers - reversed U.S. policy on the issue after Obama was first elected and decided in 2009 to support a treaty.

The measure now goes to the 193-nation General Assembly for a formal vote. It is expected to pass.

The resolution said countries are “determined to build on the progress made to date towards the adoption of a strong, balanced and effective Arms Trade Treaty.”

Jeff Abramson, director of Control Arms, a coalition of advocacy groups, urged states to agree on stringent provisions.

“In Syria, we have seen the death toll rise well over 30,000, with weapons and ammunition pouring in the country for months now,” he said. “We need a treaty that will set tough rules to control the arms trade, that will save lives and truly make the world a better place.”

Brian Wood of Amnesty International said: “After today’s resounding vote, if the larger arms trading countries show real political will in the negotiations, we’re only months away from securing a new global deal that has the potential to stop weapons reaching those who seriously abuse human rights.”

The National Rifle Association(NRA)and Gun Owners of America(GOA)strongly oppose the arms treaty.

The United States obviously sought to delay negotiations for political reasons. Obama’s first official act since being re-elected on Tuesday was to support a UN Treaty that would destroy our Second Amendment Civil Rights.

Wake up before the liberal fascists come to take your guns and then lead you slaughter!

We Will Reap What We Sowed as a Nation of Misinformed Morons

“The Democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those wo are willing to work and give to those who would not.” - Thomas Jefferson

Obama managed to win a second term with a fraction of his 2008 7.3% margin.  Voters have inexplicably doubled down on hope over experience.  Only a subversive liberal fascist or a moron could vote in favor of “fundamentally transforming America” into a Euro style Socialist State.  How is that working out for Greece, Spain, Portugal, Ireland and the rest of Europe? 

Single women, the youth who will inherit this record debt, liberals, government and union workers, and especially minorities from gays to Hispanics detrmined the outcome of the election.  They now control our beloved country.  Obama lost Independents and won less than 40% of white vote, the first Democrat since Walter Mondale to achieve that dubious distinction.  How do you think a second Obama term is going to work out?

Obama said little during his campaign about his first term and even less about his plans for a second.  Obama owes a debt to a pair of GOP appointees, and RINO Chris Christie, Republican governor of New Jersey.  By joining the four liberals on the Supreme Court in upholding Obamacare, Roberts provided a stamp of legitimacy to the unpopular and expensive health care law.  Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke’s latest round of quantitative easing was an invaluable contribution to Obama down the stretch.

Obama will now have to govern an America he so relentlessly sought to divide.  Good luck with that.

Obama’s victory represents a decline in national virtue and is a tipping point in favor of “takers” over “makers”.  The people have chosen the Nanny State over the Constitutional Republic. 

There are few permanent victories or defeats in American politics but “we the people” lost the most important election in my lifetime.  The battle for liberty beings anew this morning.
