Fascist America

Are we there yet?

Fascism is a system of political authority and social order intended to reinforce the unity, energy, and purity of communities in which liberal democracy stands accused of producing division and decline.

[…] a form of political behavior marked by obsessive preoccupation with community decline, humiliation or victimhood and by compensatory cults of unity, energy and purity, in which a mass-based party of committed nationalist militants, working in uneasy but effective collaboration with traditional elites, abandons democratic liberties and pursues with redemptive violence and without ethical or legal restraints goals of internal cleansing and external expansion.

  1. No. Fascism. As in the 14 defining characteristics.
    Not quite, but that might be wishful thinking.

    I don’t think we truly have a rural movement. But then again, that could be some mislabeling of us backwards hicks types, who will be the ones to gain the most from this crap health bill because we are poor. Maybe she means southern rural, or maybe I’m taking offense where I should be smelling roses or coffee or something. The groups she is mentioning haven’t cohered, and have some possibilities of pissing each other off. Or, coffee, smelling of.

    I feel less afraid today than I did yesterday. How’s that?

  2. It’s not Fascism if they’re not making you drink castor oil! (and I mean you, you troublemaker Suzie!)
