Fascism

…came to America “wrapped in a rainbow flag and wearing a pussyhat.” And, (as Glenn points out) calls itself “anti-fascism.”

And this, folks, is how we got Trump, who is insufficiently ideological to be a fascist.

    I got to the second instance of more soul-crushing, world-killing neoliberal economic policy and quit. If there’s anyone here who can expand on how W, Obama and now Trump were/are all killing the world via economic policy I’m all ears. Extra points awarded if you can also tie in the death of my soul.

    Greetings brother, have you accepted the word of father Marx into your heart? His way lies salvation for the tired soul but reject him and be damned for all eternity.

    Meanwhile the internet is abuzz that Trump has quietly dropped the hammer on the swamp with over 2000 sealed indictments in the last week or two.

    It could be nothing, but it sounds like something is afoot.

    2000 seal indictments? Are the Secret Service and Trump’s private security ready for riots when they’re unsealed in court?

  5. wodun:

    Maybe they are for Democrat rioters and not resistance government workers.

    I’ll believe it when I see it. I’m not seeing anything in Google to support that. Several stories note that sealed court dockets routinely include issued search warrants.

    Let’s not be like all the Progressive Leftists who were certain that they were about get a whole herd of ponies for “Fitzmas”

    I disagree with the communist author that the patriotic and religious right was ever a fertile place for fascism to fruit. She fears the fascism of the pussy hat and rainbow flags but those are both the offspring of cultural marxists. Fascism was never going to land on the right.

    It is easy to get communism, socialism, and fascism confused since they are all basically the same with minor differences. But it looks like her true discovery, although still unrecognized by her, is that left likes to eat itself. When your power structure is based on breaking people down by groups and subgroups and pitting them against other groups, you will eventually find your group is no longer in favor.

    Communism, Socialism, and Fascism are all arguing over the finer points of collectivism and how to implement it. In all cases, the concerns of the group are more important than any one individual, so if a few million must die so that tens of million more may prosper; well, that’s ok with all three of the variants.

    What’s new, pussyhat?
