“Fascism will come to America in the name of anti-fascism.” – Huey P. Long
“If fascism ever comes to America, it will come in the name of liberalism.” – Ronald Reagan
“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we have been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. ” – Barack Obama
History repeats itself. This is the first rule of history.
People never learn from history. This is the first rule of life.
People are creatures of habit and the lessons of failure are easily forgotten. Time and time again men and women rise through the strictures of their culture yet fail to observe the history of failures which surround them. It is much too easy and much too gratifying to feed our ego with the delusion that we are the oneswho will succeed where others failed.
We are the Ones who will make socialism work.
We are the Ones who will make nationalized health care a reality.
We are the Ones who will lower the oceans.
We are the Ones who will rectify the injustice done to the oppressed people of the world.
We are the Ones who will create a one-party state.
We are the Ones you have been waiting for.
Fascism, the blending of corporate and government into a unified command and control totalitarian regime, is not an American invention. All historical surges of fascism, socialism and communism take advantage of economic recession and depression, when the psyche and morale of the populace is at its weakest. Fear and panic are the short fuse for the rise of totalitarianism. The evil of totalitarianism knows no national boundaries or observes no legal etiquette. It is a constant threat to all republics and democracies.
Democrat Governor Huey Long built a political machine in Louisiana that was based on class hatred and the promise of radical redistribution of wealth. Tax the rich into submission and hand out bread to the poor, while pocketing the difference. “Share the Wealth” was the signature program of Long’s administration. The practice of newspaper censorship and the creation of special police units and state boards to shut down any opposition was the harsh reality of his regime. This is the clearest example of the left’s blueprint for America’s future.
Campaign slogans prophesying hope and promising change are the true opiate of the masses. These are the marketing tools used to achieve the only campaign goal that will be realized, which is the accumulation and consolidation of total power. Bright shining banners, freshly polished jackboots, bonfires and speeches, the bright pastel logos on airliners flying from one campaign stop to another; these are all the marketing tools of fascism.
Narcissism is the prerequisite for being Woke and the Woke warriors are the heroes of their own life.
Leftist histories paint Che and Fidel and Lenin and Trotsky as selfless martyrs sacrificing all for the masses. The reality, to those who haven’t had their brains turned to mush by Adderall addled leftist college professors, is that all of the Woke heroes were fascists in the truest sense of the word.
Lenin ended the reign of the Czar and murdered thousands in the name of Marx.
Stalin murdered millions in the name of psychotic paranoia.
Mussolini made the trains run on time and invaded helpless, backward nations.
Hitler built autobahns, lit the fuse on a second world war and industrialized genocide.
Bush crafted new laws to spy on his voters and launched wars without end in the name safety.
Obama betrayed Hope and Change for institutionalizing American self-loathing.
Antifa terrorizes and brutalizes in the name of enlightened anarchy.
If history is to be the judge one must ponder the future of the Republic, fear for the minds of the people and tremble for the Fascism of being ‘Woke.’
