Fascist Beasts

And where to find them…

Ask any American about Charlottesville and they can tell you exactly what happened there.  Ok, not exactly.  It depends on what side they are on. Neo-Nazis ran someone over. Conservatives ran someone over. A crazy, schizophrenic ran over a Communist aggressor. I guess it really depends on someone’s viewpoint. I like how Ted Cruz characterized it: someone committed a terrorist act in the United States.  But it wasn’t the only act of terror in the world this past week.

James Fields, aside from being crazy, committed an act of terror. He acted violently and killed someone because of their beliefs and how they conflicted with his. His beliefs, as a neo-Nazi, are that not only is his race better than your race, but the government should just acknowledge that and stop all the other races from oppressing his race. He is a Fascist.

Sidebar, I’ve often wondered how White Supremacists have not logically worked through their belief and seen where it falls apart. Nazis killed Jews because they saw the Jews as always doing better and oppressing them financially. They kill blacks because they see blacks as stronger and therefore dangerous. Eventually White Supremacists are going to put two and two together and stop thinking of themselves as the master race.

But putting that aside, let’s talk about Fascists for a minute. The difference between a Fascist and a Socialist is that Fascists wear their ill intentions on their sleeve. A Socialist will tell you they kill for the betterment of society, and actually sound good saying it. Look at Iceland where they are celebrating the elimination of down syndrome. They killed them all, but that’s not what they’ll tell you.

Fascists believe their (fill in the blank) is better. Therefore, they must eliminate any competition for power. The best example of modern day Fascism is not Charlottesville where a bunch of inbred white dudes carried tiki torches and chanted “We are the best” until the craziest one ran someone over.  The best examples were seen this past week in Barcelona and Turku.

In Barcelona, an Islamic Fascist terrorist ran people over with his car. Not because of voices in his head, not because he found the crowd threatening, but because in his view Islam is best and all others must be killed or intimidated into signing up. CNN stupidly pondered whether Barcelona was a Charlottesville copycat. Probably not, considering Islamic Fascist terrorists have used car terrorist attacks 11 times in Europe over the last two years. In Turku, Finland, an Islamic Fascist terrorist pulled out a knife and started indiscriminately stabbing civilians. That scares me more than a crowd of tiki torch wielding, racist frat boys.

Yet, the words Islamic, Fascist, jihad, and even terror remain verboten in much of the news coverage of these kind of terror attacks. The same people in the US who are sure that Trump is about to start the Fourth Reich with his approximately 20,000 neo-Nazi and KKK followers will pray for the victims of Barcelona without admitting Islam had anything to do with it. As slow as Trump was to call out the KKK and neo-Nazis, the Obama administration was far slower to even admit Benghazi was a terrorist attack.

Islamic Fascism is responsible for murder, rape, and slavery throughout the countries they control.  Christians, Jews, and Muslims are among the primary victims. While ISIS was the extreme version, it is still illegal in most Muslim countries to convert to another religion, or in some cases to even convert to a different denomination of Islam.  When Iran says they have no gays, it’s not because they all left or prayed the gay away and turned straight. It’s because the penalty for homosexuality in Islam is to be thrown off a roof.

There is nothing good, right, or sane about the tiny but loud pocket of Fascism rearing it’s ugly head in the US.  But until the Alt-Left gets the courage to call Fascism Fascism wherever it exists and regardless of how popular, they lack the credibility to confront neo-Nazi thugs.

I guess that leaves it up to the rest of us freedom loving Americans.

To Those Who Suddenly Care, Welcome

It’s not like violent protests are new…

I feel like I should welcome all the people who are suddenly now concerned about violent protesters. When St Louis was burning and cops were being assassinated in their cars, people got upset if you said you support the police or that this went beyond free speech.

When Antifa, angry that Trump won, were smashing Starbucks windows and burning property in the streets, we were told this is all free speech and #resistance.

When protesters set Berkeley ablaze, Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders said he understood their anger, condemned their violence, and admonished the violent ones not to say they were Bernie Sanders supporters.

People cheered when an Antifa member punched Richard Spencer in the face. I’ll admit, I cheered.
People paused for a moment when an alt-leftist from Bernie Sanders campaign staff walked onto a softball field and started gunning down GOP congressmen. In fact for almost a whole 24 hour news cycle there was unity in the thought that a line had been crossed. At the same time, Antifa on social media cheered the attack on right-wingers who opposed the Socialist agenda.
As Antifa emailed threats of violence to Fascist rally organizers and got nationalist events canceled through threats of violence, many sat in silent approval because our violence is apparently better than their violence.
Now that the racist Fascists have drawn blood, people are starting to care. In fact, they care so much that if you even mention “both sides”, you are shouted down and lumped with the racists. Condemning all violence and promoting all free speech has become anathema to the crowds. It is as evil as suggesting all lives matter when a cop is shot dead in his patrol car.
The Socialists of the Antifa movement and the Fascists of the Nazi/KKK movement have one goal in mind. They seek power. One seeks it through populist appeals and promises to those they seek to control, the other through an overt demand that all others should bow to them. Both sides oppose liberty. Both sides only approve of their own free speech and believe the other should be limited.
The only way to truly diffuse this war that the vast majority of Americans want no part of is to embrace liberty. The demands of both the Nazis and the Socialist Antifa are incompatible with the constitution. Unfortunately, embracing liberty means giving up aspirations of controlling others through big government. Even non-radical Republicans and Democrats struggle with that concept.
If you are finally ready to denounce all violence and all attempts by partisan groups to gain power over our lives through big government, then welcome. If you are simply mad that their side killed someone on your side, then this article isn’t for you.
