America’s Road To Fascism

roadtofascism1

Mr. John Wallace posted this as a reply to the entry on Obama’s Fascist Takeover and I decided it needed it’s own entry.

To answer his question – the answer is already YES.  We are there, and now it just expands and tightens it’s control over us.

But read his entry to understand how we got here and what history teaches us what will happen next.

 

 

IS AMERICA ON THE ROAD TO FASCISM?

By John Wallace

Mr. G. Richard Wagoner, the chairman and chief executive officer of General Motors, was recently forced to resign his position because of pressure from the Obama administration. He was told that if he didn’t leave, the Obama administration would not give General Motors any more federal bailout money. President Obama also told General Motors and the Chrysler Corporation that if they wanted more federal bailout money, they would have to shrink and refocus their businesses according to his (the federal government’s) wishes.

In our country’s history, there have been some limited instances of the federal government exercising some sort of control over private industry, but that was during wartime. The current assault on American capitalism by the Obama administration is unprecedented in both its scope and speed and should raise the red flag of alarm for all freedom-loving Americans.

World history has shown us that the implementation of strict government controls over private industries has been one of the first steps in the introduction of various forms of Fascism to formerly free countries. The practice of a government taking control of private industries was refined by Benito Mussolini in Italy in the 1920’s and it is called ‘corporatism.’

According to Wikipedia, political scientists use the term ‘corporatism’ to describe “a practice whereby a state, through the process of licensing and regulating officially-incorporated social, religious, economic, or popular organizations, effectively co-opts their leadership or circumscribes their ability to challenge state authority by establishing the state as the source of their legitimacy, as well as sometimes running them, either directly or indirectly.” Mussolini described it more simply when he said, “Fascism should more appropriately be called corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power.”

Some corporatist-style regimes of the 20th century included those of Benito Mussolini of Italy (1922-1945), Adolph Hitler of Germany (1933 to 1945); Francisco Franco of Spain (1936 to 1973); Juan Peron of Argentina (1943 to 1955) and even our own President Franklin Roosevelt (1933 to 1945) during the ‘New Deal.’ The Mussolini, Hitler, Franco and Peron regimes were brutal, totalitarian, Fascist dictatorships, but not all the regimes that had a corporatist foundation were fascist. The Roosevelt administration, despite its many faults, could not be described as fascist, but the ‘New Deal’ program was definitely corporatist.

Corporatism boils down to this: The government tells industry (and eventually labor unions) what to do and that they must do it for the supposed good of the country, or else their individual leaders will pay a price. Does this sound similar to what is happening to the auto industry today?

Where in the U.S. Constitution does it authorize the President of the United States to fire the head of a major private corporation just because he disagrees with his management policies? Where in the U.S. Constitution does it authorize the President of the United States to decide what kind of cars a private company will build? or what kind of car I will drive? President Barack ‘Mussolini’ Obama is taking this country down a very dangerous road and a road that America has never taken before.

Confucius said “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Are the ‘corporatist’ policies of President Obama and his administration just the first steps of many in a move towards a government takeover of our major industries? Are these policies much different than those that Mussolini and Hitler initiated in the early stages of their rise to power?

With the Politburo in our expanding federal government now having the power to hire and fire the leaders of major private corporations and to tell the auto makers what cars they can produce, will they soon be telling Americans what kind of cars they can drive; how much money they can earn; where they can go to school, what sodas they can drink, what foods they can’t eat, where they can travel, what national ID card they must carry at all times and it will impose any number of other restrictions on them. Look at California, where the state legislature is currently considering banning black cars by 2012, for some bogus global warming reason.

Thomas Jefferson said: “A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take away everything you have.” Americans must remember that we cannot fully enjoy our freedoms and liberties in America unless we keep our government limited. As our government grows and becomes more intrusive, as it is today, it is our freedoms and liberties that are becoming limited.

Welcome to the United Socialist States of America!

If we continue on President Obama’s road to CHANGE (socialism), the American people will no longer be free. The question is: “Will we learn to accept our captivity at the hands of our new masters or will we be willing to do something about it?”

    Anyone who juxtaposes Marx and Lenin with Hitler and Mussolini knows nothing about Fascism.

  2. invar

    Says who – you?

    I have family that LIVED in Mussolini’s Fascism, were raised in Hitler’s Fascism, of which were BUILT upon the ideology of Marx and the implementations by Lenin. The juxtaposition is perfectly valid.

    You obviously did not read Mr. Wallace’s piece.

    Perhaps read it first and educate yourself before illustrating yourself a moron.

  3. Sidney Carton

    To be called a moron by the likes of you is a complement. Some day you will learn what Fascism truly is, I hope it’s not from personal experience, because such lessons are hardly pleasant, and often fatal.

  4. invar

    We’re ALREADY experiencing the empowering phase of Fascism, noted by people dear to me WHO LIVED IT and are stunned few recognize what is going on.

    And if that is a veiled threat from a stormtrooping stooge of Obama’s – rest assured – I’m waiting for people like you to attempt to deprive me of liberty.

  5. Sidney Carton

    Veiled threat? Switch to decaf, the hard stuff is making you jumpy. I have no intention to deprive you of liberty, I’m more afraid that you’ll finally go off the deep end and shoot up some folks on the sidewalk when you reach the end of your rope. Paranoia kills man, believe me, you scare me far more than I should scare you, you’re armed and you’re paranoid, and you think the world is crashing down around you, that alone is scary, the fact that you threaten me personally is just par for the course. Believe me, I have little interest in ever meeting you, or others like you face to face, much less do anything that would make your all too itchy trigger fingers twitch.

  6. invar

    Yeah, and imbeciles like you once said the Munich Post’s editors were “paranoid” too and said pretty much what you just did.

    Why do you people always have to project that which you yourselves engage in? You were the one to tell me that some day I’m going to learn what Fascism clearly is.

    Was that you in that Obama Youth Brigade doing the latest Brownshirt march and chant?

    I recognize tyrants and tyranny when history so clearly displays the blueprint now being followed to the letter.

    Paranoia doesn’t kill, it keeps the vigilant alive.

    And I’m watching.

  7. Sidney Carton

    We’re done here. When you and yours go get around to putting my family and I up against a wall, please have the good graces to kill us in the first round of shooting. Being the victims of fascist mass murder is bad enough, having to be shot twice because y’all never learned how to shoot straight is just insulting.

  8. invar

    More projection on your part Sidney.

    The people who are going to be putting families up against the wall, are the ones who think Obama is god and will do his bidding without question or regard to understanding liberty.

    People like you who ridicule those attempting to warn you of the brutal tyranny and Fascism Obama and the Leftist stooges are putting into place.

    But then Stalin had a name for people like you: he called you “useful idiots”.

    I’ve also never met a wussy such as yourself – who would actually offer himself and family up to a tyrannical phantom and beg for an accurate bullet to put yourself out of misery.

    Real Americans are willing to fight for life and liberty.

    We see you are not one of those – even when projecting an absurd fear.

  9. david

    were we not warned of this” military industrial complex,” by a president by the name of “Ike”.history is repeating itself by a generation that did not learn,but was indoctrinated by a socialist generation of the teachers union, that has nothing but hatred of OUR constitution.

  10. monkeyking

    We’re heading towards global government, with a population target goal of 800,000 , and you can thank your gracious god because its people like the man who created your deity, who seek systematic genocide.

    Some of you people need wake up! knock OFF this left vs right BS and become Americans! IF you no longer want America to be a sovereign nation and willing to accept a world constitution (do not expect it to mirror our constitution) then go right ahead. But I WILL NOT! If you have not figured out what 911 was about by now, you never will. Lives where lost to gain what you are willing to give up.

  12. invar

    Conservatism IS American. It’s NOT BS contrary to whatever nonsensical conspiratorial Truther view you are beholden to. There is what is right that upholds the liberty intended for us, and there is what is wrong, tyrannical, abusive to liberty, subversive and enslaving to us – which are ALL provinces of the Left.

    And now the Left has gained power using everything from Global Warming, to ‘equality’ and ‘social justice’. So don’t come here to lecture us about what we already know about what Constitutionality, Liberty and Americanism.

    Satan transforms himself into an angel of light – and we here on this blog are not ignorant of his devices.

    Neither are we beguiled by the lunatic conspiracy agenda either.
