Skip to comments.The Transformation of the American Conservative Movement into Fascism (MEGABARF!!)
Posted on 08/27/2010 12:46:16 PM PDT by tcrlaf
I am not sure when I first detected the noxious fumes that would envelop the conservative movement in the Obama era.
It might have been early on, in April 2009, when I visited a series of gun shows in rural California and Nevada.
Perusing tables piled high with high-caliber semi-automatic weapons and chatting with anyone in my vicinity, I heard urgent warnings of mass roundups, concentration camps, and a socialist government in Washington. These people that are purchasing these guns are people that are worried about whats going on in this country, a gun dealer told me outside a show in Reno. Good luck Obama, a young gun enthusiast remarked to me. We outnumber him 100 to 1. At this time, the Tea Party movement had not even registered on the national medias radar.
In September 2009, I led a panel discussion about this book inside an auditorium filled with nearly 100 students and faculty at the University of California-Riverside. Beside me sat Jonathan Walton, an African-American professor of religious studies and prolific writer, and Mark Takano, an erudite, openly gay former Democratic congressional candidate and local community college trustee.
In the middle of our discussion, a dozen College Republicans stormed the front of the stage with signs denouncing me as a left-wing hack while a hysterical young man leaped from the crowd, blowing kisses mockingly at Takano while heckling Walton as a racist. Afterward, university police officers insisted on escorting me to my ride after the right-wing heckler attempted to follow me as he shouted threats.
My encounter with this aggressive right-wing cadre seemed a strange, isolated event. But the hostility turned out to be symptomatic of the intensifying campaign to delegitimize President Obama and his allies in Congress. The Rights days of rage were only beginning.

“All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state.” — Benito Mussolini
Che Guevara said something very similar, IIRC, “Within the Revolution, everything. Outside the Revolution, nothing.”
Talk about being unhinged...
Either that or a routine case of a thief screaming “catch the thief” as loud as he can.
Max Blumenthal? C’mon, rolling out Sidney Blumenthal’s kid as a serious person is ridiculous. Sid Blumenthal was Slick Willie’s attack dog, his pile of dung son is a chip off the old turd.
“Property may be owned by individuals and businesses, but may only be used within parameters established by the state.”
IOW, the current US of A.
Just a Note, this haters book is 119, 147th out of 660,00 on Amazon, and is available, NEW, from 19 cents!!!!
Who actually BOUGHT copies of this?
Really? The left does this kind of thing all the time. The lefties shout down and thrown food at conservative speakers so often at universities that it's barely newsworthy when it happens.
Behold, a Nazi smells the stink of his own antisemitism, and thinks it's coming from the Jews.
The popular Alinsky tactic: Accuse your enemy of doing (and being) what you in fact are.
Where I go to get back the last few minutes that I wasted reading that drek?
No one does fascism better than your side does, Max (son of “Grassy Knoll”).
The USA is a major fascist country, and has been since the beginning of the 20th century. And then we got Obama.
It hurts to say it. But Liberalism is Fascism. The New Deal, the Great Society, all of it. Good Guys like Coolidge and Reagan have definitely been the exceptions.
Veterans Today appears to be a left leaning group. Their web site doesn’t look like a typical veteran oriented site.
Just another Jewish American Democrat (JAD). Self righteous, self-loathing, loud, insulting, and wrong.
And maybe a little jealous. SDS's "Days of Rage" were very poorly attended, and they got their heads busted. The Weathermen...mostly self righteous, self-loathing Jews, loud, insulting, and wrong...went underground and resorted to violence. The Tea Parties are well-attended and rational. The only "rage" to be found is expressed coherently and politely. And they pick up after themselves.
If Slapsie Maxie ever got a whiff of REAL fascism, he’d wet his pants and run screaming home to Daddy.
Nahh. Its the American LIBERAL movement which has transformed itself into Fascism.
The old time liberals from the 1950s and 1960s didn’t trust government - they never would have supported giving the government the additional powers they have sought and received - like extending eminent domain to the right to take private property for re-sale to higher tax paying bsinesses or private parties, or reducing health benefits to certain classes of citizens, or aiding and abetting an international cult which supports Sharia Law.
Its the LIBERALS who have evolved into Fascist Statists, not the Conservatives.
Kid, we’ll show you “fascism”
You got a mirror he can look into or somethin’?
