Who Will Liberate America?
America's Soft Fascism
A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
It is thought that the moment of recovery begins for addicts when they hit the so-called "rock bottom" and can sink no further into their chosen depravity.
been thinking about that for a few weeks and it seems to me that if one
looked-up "addict" in the dictionary one would find a map of America.
country (America) is truly and absolutely an addict. That being said,
if we are truly serious about recovery and rebuilding our nation -- oughten we to allow our government to take us all the way down to the rock bottom where we can begin anew?
Believe me, I KNOW how difficult it is to get one's mind wrapped around that concept. I have been wrestling with it for a while now.
But here's the thing: The government America has now is just NOT SERIOUS
about a recovery and the rebuilding of America. They are more
concerned with maintaining the status quo and maintaining their cushy
If the republicans had any spine, at all, they would simply back off and tell Obama, "OK, it's your babe. We're going over the cliff and YOU will own all the bad stuff at the bottom."
But there is a problem with that, well, a number of problems, but one in particular, which the GOP cannot avoid. It is they, the GOP, which will get all the blame for everything that goes wrong -- period.
The republicans have been set up, and rather nicely, too. No matter how the negotiations go on the fiscal cliff thingy, the republicans will be blamed for anything and everything that turns out bad or goes wrong ... no matter what.
I'm one of those commentators who doesn't believe the GOP leadership,
the elite of the party, understands what they are up against. I honestly
believe the republican leadership actually believes they are going head-to-head with the Democratic Party.
Alas, they most certainly ARE NOT pitted against the Democratic Party.
The Democratic Party as a single entity no longer exists. It
was swallowed up long ago by the labor unions, and they, in turn, were
swallowed up by the Socialists, and the Socialist were, in turn,
swallowed up by the Communists. Plus, they have those Marxist acolytes
in the Mainstream Media to man their propaganda machine.
If you took a desk cop out of a Police Precinct House
and told him to go downtown and clean up a well known street gang. You
would be very close to describing the situation the Republican Party is
in as it goes up against a virtual quartet of political evil -- the CUDS Party (Communist/Union/Democrat/Socialist Party)
Some call this group an "alliance." I call it "a gang." The
elite leadership of the GOP simply has no idea who they are up against
and they have no clue as to how to combat them -- none, zero. ZIP!
a former conservative republican, I can attest that the GOP leadership
does not want input from conservatives who seem more able to recognize
the CUDS Party for what it is and knows all the wrangling is not a game
but a bloodsport and there can be no reaching across the aisle to try
doing business with CUDS or the poor fool offering his hand will find it
lopped off. (Not a single new chairman of ANY of the US House committees are conservative. Not a single one!)
boyhood friend and I were talking recently. We were, and remain, like
brothers. We grew up together, went to school together, served in the
US military together where we were trained to combat socialism and
communism on the battlefield. We both expressed our shock and dismay that the USA is now ruled by communism. We expressed our fears for the future of our children and our grandchildren in America.
was (and is) simply no organized resistance to the communist takeover
of the US. None. Even at this late hour, those who would resist find
themselves in a tiny minority unable to even create a political force (a
third party) with which to replace the Republican Party as the foil of
the CUDS Party.
So it is out of sheer frustration
that I make the suggestion that we all step back and allow the county
to go over that fiscal cliff. It will be painful, but -- it
will wreck Obama's second term and destroy his legacy. If will deliver
another even worse recession, with unemployment upwards of ten percent,
perhaps even twelve percent, and we will return to a Congress which has
tied itself in knots unable to do anything. In other words -- the
return of gridlock.
Unthinkable situations often require unthinkable action to resolve their inherent problems.
Think of it as America's "Samson Option."
Much as Samson pushed the pillars out from under the roof of the great
banquet hall and brought the roof down on the Philistines, going over
the fiscal cliff would bring the roof down on and crush America's
domestic enemies. The term "sabotage" could realistically be applied
here. It would certainly sabotage the plans of Obama and the CUDS Party. (Communist/Union/Democrat/Socialist Party)
Yes, the GOP WOULD be blamed for it. But the point is -- the republicans are going to be blamed in any case! So why not?
Drastic action is called for. What else is there to lose? We've
already lost our country -- and our freedom is being smothered to death
beneath the weight of reams and reams of rules and regulations and
Presidential Executive Orders.
Americans live today in a sort of "soft fascism." Think not? Well, consider: "From
Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning” Soft Fascism is a religion of the
state. It assumes the organic unity of the body politic and longs for a
national leader attuned to the will of the people. It is totalitarian
in that it views everything as political and holds that any action by
the state is justified to achieve the common good. It takes
responsibility for all aspects of life, including our health and
well-being, and seeks to impose uniformity of thought and action,
whether by force or through regulation and social pressure. Everything,
including the economy and religion, must be aligned with its objectives.
Any rival identity is part of the “problem” and therefore defined as
the enemy. I will argue that contemporary American liberalism embodies
all of these aspects of fascism.” SOURCE: http://airmodal.com/2011/09/03/definition-of-soft-fascism/
I have a better understanding of the people of 20th century Europe the
day after the Nazis marched in and took over and they realized they were
an occupied people with no effective resistance movement and no hope.
They would have remained locked in that hell-on-earth had not the
Americans come to liberate them.
Now the question is -- who will liberate the Americans?
