H.L Mencken’ said: ” When fascism comes to America it will be holding a cross — or the upside down Trump bible — and draped in a flag.” They are corporatists in the traditional meaning of the word. They want chaos, at which time they will set up a strong man dictatorship. Their media has been preparing millions of their followers to act as brownshirts to fight their enemies they demonize. Those who are not in favor of theocracy, who refuse to bow down to the oligarchs and refuse to get in line with their way of running the world. They have an enemies list they have been preaching to and non-believers, liberals, progressives, unionists, environmentalists, Democrats etc. are on that list. This is almost exactly the same as the 1930s. They are taking over everything, culturally, religiously and commercially. They have a plan that is well-funded. They are not crazy. They are fascists and they are following the method very well. Joseph Goebbels described thugocracy this way : “There was no point in seeking to convert the intellectuals. For intellectuals would never be converted and would anyway always yield to the stronger and this will always be “the man in the street.” Arguments must therefore be crude, clear and forcible, and appeal to emotions and instincts, not the intellect. Truth was unimportant and entirely subordinate to tactics and psychology.”
Speaking to honor our fallen heroes on 9/11/21, President Bush warned us of the greatest threat to our democracy: ” We have seen growing evidence that the dangers to our country can come not only across borders but from violence that gathers within. There is little culture overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home. But in their disdain for pluralism, in their disregard for human life, in their determination to defile national symbols they are children of the same foul spirit and it is our continuing duty to confront them.”
If this fascist cancer is not cut out it will spread until it kills our democracy.
