I dare not compare the atrocities of the Nazis to the actions of liberals today, nor do I say that todays liberals are Nazis, they clearly are not. However, what they do share in common is that both liberalism and nazism are forms of fascism. At the very heart of the two the essence is the same and therefore the end results cannot not differ. Neither can produce anything but destruction and death (Nazism doing so with direct intentions to achieve their goals, but often as a by-product of liberalism along the way to theirs) for at their common core is the arrogant mind-set of "superiority" and elitism that makes them both alike with the exception of what their ambitions look like and how they purpose to carry them out. There are millions of people who have, and millions more who will suffer or die because of fascism, be it in under socialism, or communism, or pseudo-capitalism, for fascism can dwell within all of these societies. Fascism is based on elitism and previously appeared with emphasis placed on nationalism and physical elements such as genetics and race. The fascism of modern liberalism is different in that it removes the boundaries of nationalism in favor of internationalism. The adversary then becomes not other nations or races who are considered inferior, but those that oppose the idea of an elitist world government which establishes international law superceding those of the individual nations or states. The strong nationalism that was used to drive fascism becomes an internationalism. Superiority is no longer determined based upon race or nationality but upon conforming to a very specific liberal ideology. This liberal ideology in actuality is neofascism and applies a Darwinistic approach to the mind. It is based on the illusion that by purging out "imperfections" of thought and beliefs, and replacing them with those which they judge to be "superior" according to their own definitions, they will bring the whole world into a new and more perfect age. For decades there has been great effort put forth by these elitist to hammer public mentality into form by labeling it main stream while demonizing everyone considered to be nonconforming. Hitler's quest for supremacy through the perfection of genetics has been replaced by others, who holding a different vision of the same dream, seek to impose what they believe to be intellectual supremacy upon all mankind .
Egocentric elitism spawned Nazism, but it can no longer thrive in that past form which was made naked and therefore has mutated like a virus mutates to conceal itself in order to survive and spread. Although it has morphed offering a new idealistic vision for the world , it still runs parallel with occurrences during the reign of Hitler, albeit in a much softer form.. Liberal fascism is an effeminate fascism which has morphed by forsaking its masculinity to become a seemingly nonviolent movement that prefers seduction over brute force and is thus more marketable to the modern world than the fascism of yesterday which was segregated and held limited appeal. It is a fascism with narcissistic appeal, universally adaptable to all people who will submit and therefore more dangerous than any fascism before it as it will find fewer opponents, and is already accepted by millions world wide. The "Final Solution" will be the attempt to legislate the conscience of man to conform to this neo-fascism. Nonconformist will be deemed intolerant and will not be tolerated. Unlike the Nazis, Liberatis will not be centralized destroying only certain nations, but having an international presence they have the potential to bring humanity into bondage and destroy the world.
You could be right and all that, but I have to admit that my eyes are starting to glaze over.
Uh, is this a vanity or what? Who is Randy Sprinkle?
I didn't bother to read your post, that one token paragraph just wasn't enough to qualify as "formatted". However, to answer your question: all fascists are liberals, but not all liberals are fascists.Owl_Eagle
(If what I just wrote makes you sad or angry,
Randy: Paragraphs are your friend.
Freeper "noumenon" phrased it thusly, and I have committed it to memory (apologies if I don't have it quite right!):
"If left unchecked, in time the liberal fascist marriage of ignorance and arrogance will beget the bastard children of ruin and slaughter."
When people wonder why I became active in grassroots activism, I share this with them, and they wonder no longer. Another way I put it is, "I'm not raising my kids to fight the second Civil War."
I believe Ben Franklin noted that our form of government could turn into a fascist state if government got to large and the people use the public funds for their own self greed and warned us to keep a limited government.
This Randy Sprinkles?
Though they are called Liberals, that is a misnomer. They are semi out of the closet socialists, in some cases communists, definitely anarchists and mostly un-American!!!!
You clearly haven't heard of the indymedias.
Let every American know, regardless of his or her wishes, that we shall pay any price, impose any burden, force any hardship (upon you), support any enemy, oppose any friend to assure the survival and the success of socialism.
Such is the nature of liberalism and the goal of Democrats.
#15. Well Said, Good Definition!!!!:-)
[to succeed they would need to suppress Islam and they don't have the balls to take them on. That's where your thesis fall short.]
I agree. I think of liberals as the elani from the book "The Time Machine" who were constantly eaten by the Morlocks. They are mice. Liberal males are defined as those without gonads.
Er, have you seen "The Producers" one time too many?
It's really ironic that the very definition of the word "liberal" doesn't even fit the Left. David Horowitz doesn't even call them "liberal". The word should be an antonym for "fascist", but the reality is much more as you described.
Leftists ("Liberals") want anything but liberty for those outside their exclusive club. Conformity of thought and action is stridently demanded. Tight control of the speech, thoughts and activities of others is their recurring dream.
Where Hitler is given as an example of extreme right-wing thinking, and current Leftists are extreme left-wing thinking, I'm more and more convinced that they are really in the same place on the spectrum. This place on the spectrum is "I want to have control over others so they will do, think and say what I agree with." The spectrum, then, is circular, not linear.
