Who you calling a fascist…, fascist?

The definition of “fascism,” according to Merriam-Webster, is: a political philosophy, movement, or regime that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.

We hear members of the biased mainstream media, democrats, and liberals in general throwing around the word “fascist” quite a bit lately, when referring to President Trump, conservatives, republicans, and hardworking Americans in general.

But which political party “exalts nation and often race above the individual?” I think the liberal democrats made their position clear when they berated Kanye West from all angles when he said, “You don’t have to agree with trump… I don’t agree with everything anyone does. That’s what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.”

Which political party stands for an all-encompassing “centralized autocratic government?” Which political party never saw a government regulation, program, or department they didn’t like? The democrats would have to plead guilty in this case as well.

Which political party promotes “severe economic and social regimentation?” I don’t think the democrats can disavow this either, seeing their rallying cries are more “socialistic” than “capitalistic.” In fact, the word “capitalism” is a dirty word in the liberal world.

Lastly we come to “forcible suppression of opposition.” Do masked individuals, dressed in black, terrorizing conservative speakers and conservative students at numerous college campuses, come to mind? Chalk another one up for the liberals!

We have talked about this liberal strategy of accusing others of the exact same thing they’re doing, in order to deflect attention away from themselves. Well, here we have another fine example of that.

The great American novelist, Ernest Hemingway, commonly demonstrated his feelings of solidarity with the allied groups fighting the fascists, in and around World War II. Many people at the time, around the world, felt that it was a moral duty to fight fascism, which they feared may take root world-wide if not checked. This view was given voice later in the well-known poem First They Came for the Jews, attributed to Pastor Martin Niemöller:

 

First they came for the Jews

and I did not speak out

because I was not a Jew.

 

Then they came for the Communists

and I did not speak out

because I was not a Communist.

 

Then they came for the trade unionists

and I did not speak out

because I was not a trade unionist.

 

Then they came for me

and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) was a prominent German Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps.

You have to take your hat off to Pastor Niemöller. How many people have you heard about who were brave enough to be an “outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler?”

Nowadays, Pastor Niemöller would probably be shouted down, or not be allowed to speak at all, on most American college campuses.

Think about that.
