By now, we’ve all heard of the mass shooting at the Sikh Temple in Wisconsin. And we’ve seen the coverage of the shooter, Wade Michael Page. But, Bob Belvedere at TCOTS makes a significant point, and one that needs to be explored…
For nearly eighty years now, the Left has engaged in one of the most successful Big Lie campaigns in it’s history.
They have been able to get the vast majority of the people who have lived in this country [and in the other countries of The West] since the 1930?s to believe that Fascism is a Right Wing system of belief. The Left has deftly convinced Americans that Fascism is nothing like Communism, that the former is crude, militantly nationalistic, and only interested in absolute power and brutal control [‘Deutschland, Deutschland, über alles…’], whereas Communism / Socialism is merely seeking to bring about Equality, Liberty, and Fraternity [‘Imagine no possessions…’]. Nothing, of course, could be further from the truth: Fascism is merely a transitional stage between mild Statism [Modern Liberalism] and Socialism. In other words, it is decidedly a belief system of the Left — grown as it was in the sterile laboratories located in the minds of Leftists like Benito Mussolini.
In it’s successful effort to distance itself from Herr Hitler and Il Duce, the Communist Propaganda Machine was able to get people to see Fascism as a Right Wing phenomenon, and this has the benefit of allowing them to label any conservative a Fascist at will — a very useful tool in politics, as we have seen. The Progressives in America have adopted this practice, kept this meme alive. Because of World War II, people have ever since associated Fascism with the Nazis, so, therefore, anytime you accuse a person on the Right of being a Fascist, a certain set of images enters the brainwashed mind of the hearer.
Knocked it out of the park!
I’ve made the point, many times, that Fascism is a leftist construct. For example, I recently quoted this from the American Nazi Party website…
The American Nazi Part is extreme right wing, is it? Here is something right from their own platform…
We demand the creation of an honest, self-sufficient, debt-free economy based solely on the productive capacity of the Aryan worker, which will guarantee conditions of full employment and price stability. We also demand public control of all banking and credit institutions as well as all utilities and all monopolies, confiscation of all conglomerate holdings, cancellation of all usurious debt, comprehensive profit sharing in all basic industries, and the institution of a national program of interest-free loans for families, farmers, and small businessmen.
We believe that the proper function of an economy is to serve the economic needs of the people, not to make profits for big bankers and huge multinational corporations. We must put an end to both economic freeloading and economic exploitation in America. There must be no place for parasites who draw their sustenance from society without giving anything in return. We also believe that HONEST WORK is the only legitimate basis for wealth – not speculation, usury, or money-manipulation – and that a sound economic system must rest, not on debt or some extraneous metal, but on the productivity of the Aryan worker alone. We believe further, that money is properly a medium of exchange and store of value, not a commodity like bread or steel, and that therefore money and credit should not be issued for profit, but to serve the legitimate needs of the people without interest. Finally, we believe that it is unnecessary for any rational society to suffer unemployment when there is work to be done and people who want jobs. We must have an economy based on the long-term interests of the man who works for a living, not the chronic loafer or the man who lives by renting out his capital.
Yes folks, this is a so called right wing movement. This could come right from an occupod!
But, according to our leftist friends, these are right wingers. Because, as you all know, redistribution of wealth is a big right wing tradition, right?
Then, for the reaction to the big lie? Bob quotes Stacey McCain…
The timid defensiveness of some conservatives — who run away screaming the minute they hear the word “racism” spoken aloud — is the exact opposite of political wisdom. Having been so often and so unfairly accused of “hate,” they have internalized their liberal antagonists’ worldview to such a degree that they pre-emptively fear the smear:
“Oh, let’s denounce the crime, then move on and ignore it, because we might be targeted with a guilt-by-association smear attempting to connect us with this tattooed skinhead freak we never heard of until he killed six people.”
Not only is this reaction gutless — needlessly defensive — but it makes conservatives look like shameless political opportunists: If the guy who killed the Sikhs had been an Occupier or an Islamic jihadi, the right-wing blogosphere would have been raising hell. So when the shooter turns out to be somebody categorized as a right-winger, conservatives are not going to score any points for integrity and courage by whining that this is unfair and then trying to ignore it.
When the Left does this, we automatically notice it, don’t we?
Essentially, the left takes and attributes their bastard stepchildren, the fascists, on to us. And, to complicate things, many on our side buy into the big lie!
History is there. It is real, and it vindicates our side at every turn. We have the facts, so there is no reason for us to hide. If a fascist murdered a group on innocent citizens, it shouldn’t be politicized, but understood. However, since the left makes up lies with which to spin their yarns, we are obligated to correct them.
