Dangerous Times: Crypto-Fascism in Italy, Hungary, Greece, Albania
AmericanThinker.com ^ | 3/23/2013 | James Lewis and Justine Aristea

A great sense of alarm is spreading among ordinary Europeans today, especially in the south and east of the continent. Now even the elitist media are giving us the worst international news since the Cold War.

Americans do not want to hear this, either.

Well, you may not be interested in evil, but evil may be interested in you.

Listen up. This could be important.

The Washington Post just told us that a dictatorial strongman has risen to power in Hungary, a man named Viktor Orban. In a two-hour parliamentary session, Orban forced radical changes in the Hungarian constitution to favor his own party. Orban caught the European media and political elites by complete surprise.

In Germany, Der Spiegel is finally reporting on Beppe Grillo, calling him "the most dangerous man in Europe." Grillo is the failed Italian comedian who used the web to recruit 9 million voters in the recent election, barely one percent short of Mussolini's first vote in 1922, giving him a plurality in parliament.

This week, Grillo met with Italy's President Napolitano and demanded that his Five Star Party be given ministerial control of the police and the government-owned media (RAI), the levers of big power.

Nobody knows if Grillo will get what he wants. If he ever succeeds in running the Italian federal police and media, Italy will be in very deep trouble. Maybe he won't succeed today, but he is running for the next election coming in June. Yes, June of this year.

You can believe that Grillo aims for total power. He says so himself, and his brainwashed followers believe it.

Interesting article. The evil at hand is the UNaccountable bureaucrats of the totalitarian EU IMF superseding national and individual sovereignty.

And yet even our most beloved leaders continue to insist on keeping their heads in the dark.

AUDIENCE WITH THE DIPLOMATIC CORPS ACCREDITED TO THE HOLY SEE ADDRESS OF POPE FRANCIS

Sala Regia Friday, 22 March 2013

In this work, the role of religion is fundamental. It is not possible to build bridges between people while forgetting God. But the converse is also true: it is not possible to establish true links with God, while ignoring other people. Hence it is important to intensify dialogue among the various religions, and I am thinking particularly of dialogue with Islam. At the Mass marking the beginning of my ministry, I greatly appreciated the presence of so many civil and religious leaders from the Islamic world. And it is also important to intensify outreach to non-believers, so that the differences which divide and hurt us may never prevail, but rather the desire to build true links of friendship between all peoples, despite their diversity.

All along, those "non-believers" are thinking how the Vatican would make such a nice mosque.

Their economies (and ours) have been fascist for decades. Government orchestrated picking of winner and losers, societal socialism, and the legal structuring of preferred peoples and cultures.

What they are noticing now is that many people who are forced to live in a fascist state will start to desire to be in charge.

Actually, they are backed and financed by the Islamists.

Grillo’s history is Communist Party. Suddenly we need to worry about “Crypto-Fascism”....

Victor Orban was groomed by commie’s and received a lot of money from Soros. Just like Obama.

That's right.

Victor Orban put pro-life in the Hungarian constitution and reaffirmed support for Christianity.

That is what makes him a fascist in the eyes of the EU.

Fascism is a form of socialism, where economic decisions are controlled by political institutions. The difference being that instead of business being owned communally, business continues to be owned privately, but government directs business via the proxy of bureaucracy.

The Treaty of Lisbon is one of the founding sources of authority for the European Union. This treaty states that the economic basis for the Union will be “social market economy”. As with all things liberal, he who gets to define the meaning on the words and terms controls the outcome of the discussion.

In this case “social market economy” means soft fascism. As the power and scope of the central government grows, so does the fascist bureaucracy and attitude of the governing class. We have the best example yet in the treatment of the accounts of savers in Cyprus, where the EU demanded that about 10% of account balances be seized in return for bailing out the remainder.

I have not heard of Orban, however I watched a 12 minute video of the comedian from Italy. It was about ten years old.
All he said was some common sense stuff as he bashed those idiots in charge that have produced such a mess. Good stuff actually.

I did not know he was a commie like Orban?

‘Corporatism’ is the manner in which governments operate today.

The Labour Charter of 1927, promulgated by the Grand Council of Fascism, stated in article 7:
“The corporative State considers private initiative, in the field of production, as the most efficient and useful instrument of the Nation,” then goes on to say in article 9 that: “State intervention in economic production may take place only where private initiative is lacking or is insufficient, or when are at stakes the political interest of the State. This intervention may take the form of control, encouragement or direct management.”

And it will ...ultimately that is what is going to happen.

When the persecution starts to directly affect the Vatican, which is a sovereign state, beware for the time of the beast is at hand.

So many are deceived that the anti-christ will be the Pope. But, Catholics know we will be persecuted right out of Vatican City. The anti-Christ will rise up from there, but it won't be from the Church.

“Intensify outreach to non-believers,” is a call to be missionaries to them. Keep in mind Pope Francis is more evangelist for the faith than other Popes in recent memory.
