American Fascism

Fascism is authoritarianism, and the poster boy for American Fascism today is Donald J. Trump. Now, if you believe President Trump is a fascist then you also believe that Obama is a libertarian.

It’s obvious to everyone that under President Trump’s administration, individual rights have been trampled by the administration’s enforcement of the laws of the United States. According to the Pew Research Center, “Same sex marriages are on the rise.”1 So, the Trump Administration’s authoritarian posture has had a positive effect on the LGBT community.

The violence in Chicago is on track to top 700 homicides for the year.2 Is this an indication of authoritarian rule at the expense of individual rights? Seems Chicago needs a little more, not less, authoritarianism.

And then there’s Trump’s attempts to convert Americans to Christianity illustrated by the appointment of an Evangelical Christian to be deputy director of the White House Office of Management and Budget.3 An Evangelical in government service! What is happening to America? Thank God for the socialist, secularist, atheist, Marxist Senator from Vermont who took a stand for traditional American values.

Everyone these days seems to have a propensity to throw around the word “fascist” without really thinking (or knowing) what it really means. The word fascist comes from the Italian, “fascio” which means “a bundle,” “a sheaf,” or “league” according to Wikipedia. (No, I don’t speak Italian.) Given this definition we can try to apply it, as follows: Fascio delle Nazioni (League of Nations).

Also, don’t think that you will get a clear definition of fascism on the Web because most articles are screeds written by anti-Trumpers. As it stands, there are more and more slogans floating around but here’s one that you may not have heard recently, “All for one and all for the state,” that is, the state and its dictator.

Dictator form of government is the greatest form of government there is, if you have the right Dictator.

Will Rogers

In case one has forgotten, or have never been taught in school, fascism enjoyed widespread popularity in America in the 1920s through the 1940s. And, according to, Some famous fascist sympathizers included such prominent Americans as: William Randolph Hearst, Joseph Kennedy (JFK’s father), Charles Lindbergh, John Rockefeller, and Andrew Mellon.

Look in my eyes, what do you see?
The cult of personality
I know your anger, I know your dreams
I’ve been everything you want to be
I’m the cult of personality
Like Mussolini and Kennedy
I’m the cult of personality
The cult of personality
The cult of personality4

You might already be aware of Columbia University’s Casa Italiana, a center for Italian studies which opened in 1927, but did you know that at the time it was controlled by Mussolini supporters who used it to dispense fascist propaganda.5

Now, let’s take a look at some quotes attributed to Mussolini, the Father of Fascism, taken from AZ Quotes. I leave it as an exercise for the reader to figure out which political ideology Mussolini’s quotes are most closely aligned with today:

  1. The state reserves the right to be the sole interpreter of the needs of society.
  2. Fascism accepts the individual only insofar as his interests coincide with the state’s.
  3. All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state.
  4. There is a violence that liberates, and a violence that enslaves; there is a violence that is moral and a violence that is immoral.
  5. You know what I think about violence. For me it is profoundly moral -more moral than compromises and transactions.
  6. Fascism is a religious concept.
  7. Journalism is not a profession, but a mission.
  8. Our future lies to the east and south, in Asia and Africa.

The Juche (North Korean) ideology fits right in with quotes 1-3 except that in the DPRK, the individual is more likely to wind up in a labor camp or face total re-education by anti-aircraft gunfire.

Quotes 4&5 provides the rationale for the anti-Trump, anti-American, Antifa black shirts who use violence and intimidation to suppress those holding opposing viewpoints. Look no further than James T. Hodgkinson, the congressional baseball practice shooter. Antifa is a leftist group and Mr. Hodgkinson was a Bernie Sanders supporter.

You hear a lot of chatter from the political commentators and analysts on why the mainstream media is so biased against President Trump, well it’s because journalism is no longer a profession, instead it is now on a mission to take down our rightfully elected president.

You might ask how could this happen? Well, it’s not just journalism, it’s happened to every major institution in America. They have all been synchronized (coordinated) with progressive ideology. This technique of coordination or “gleichschaltung,” was employed by the Nazis in Hitler’s Germany to get everyone and every institution to follow the Party line.

The Nazi policy of Gleichschaltung (standardization) was an attempt to rid the country of independent institutions. During the Third Reich, almost every public institution and instrument of policy had been altered to serve Nazi purposes (Gleichschaltung), so all such institutions and instruments were subordinated to the Party. Newspapers, schools at every level, banks, courts, publishing houses, theatres, museums, radio stations, and government offices were all coordinated. Political parties ceased to exist. Even the German Red Cross had been corrupted.6

But that was then, now the Alt Left has adopted the same tactics.

What is the “Alt Left”?

It’s a movement of phony self-righteousness and “compassion” that it uses to gain power. It will do anything and say anything to achieve its goal of hammerlock control not only of government, but every significant cultural institution – from schools, universities and the press to churches, foundations, Hollywood and unions.7

So, what happened to America you ask? Well, it has allowed itself to be converted from belief in a divine being to Statism. Naturally, none of the statists are going to admit that they are following a religion because they believe in America and the First Amendment to the Constitution.

Naturally, it follows that statist doctrines are grounded in state socialism imputed to us through Darwinian evolutionary theology. After which, Marx took the Darwinian belief system and applied it to economics and politics. Finally, Lenin took the principles from both and formulated a collectivist system of government.

As a result, now instead of church or synagogue leaders teaching us the precepts of God, we now have central planners in government intent on controlling every aspect of American life.

In the Crosshairs: Providence and the U.S. Election

When was the last time you heard the word “revolution” used in the context of the Republican Party? I would say never. Revolution is term normally associated with progressives and Democrats but this year there is a “populist revolution” and it’s being waged by Republican voters against the same political elites and career politicians in Washington D.C.

Unlike the American Revolution which began in 1775, the political revolution today is being fought by voters not armies, with ballots not bullets. In 1776, the battlegrounds were Trenton and Princeton but in 2016 every polling booth in every state in the United States is a battleground.

In 1776, our great American leader was General George Washington, today, our great American leader is Donald J. Trump. Some of you on the other side of the political spectrum might ask “what about Bernie Sanders and the democratic socialist revolution he is leading?” Yes, but his movement really isn’t a revolution, it’s just business as usual for someone in the new Democratic Party.

So, am I trying to compare George Washington with Donald Trump? Well, not really but I believe there are some interesting parallels between the two men.

The following excerpts are from The Real American His-story concerning Colonel George Washington during the French and Indian War:

On the morning of July 9th, 1755, [Gen.] Braddock and 1000 of his men, along with Washington and some of his Virginia regulars, crossed the southern shore of the Monongahela. Colonel Thomas Gage had a forward detachment of 350 soldiers, 250 workers and axe men, cutting a path. They were about 10 miles from Ft. Duquesne around 1:00 pm, Gage and the forward detachment had just crossed a ravine when scouts, and flanking parties came running back towards them, waving them off. Just then, they were hit with a fusillade of musket balls. It immediately became chaos. The British could not see their enemy, because they were hidden behind rocks, hills, and trees. The rain of bullets kept coming in on them dropping them like flies. Gage’s men fired back at the direction of the smoke plumes from their enemies’ rifles, but hit nothing but the rocks, hills, and trees, merely splintering bark.

For the Indians, who were crack marksmen, this was like shooting fish in a barrel…The retreating men collided with the advancing men, setting them to more confusion. All the while, the French and Indians continued to rain down musket balls upon them with deadly accuracy, and force.

Indians testified later, that they had singled him [Washington] out, but their bullets had no effect on him. They were convinced that an Invisible Power was protecting him.

Washington had two horses shot out from under him, and four bullet holes in his coat. Yet he himself was untouched by bullet, bayonet, tomahawk, or arrow. Scores of victims had fallen beside him, yet he went unharmed.

George Washington survived the massacre at the Monongahela without as much as a scratch. Was the hand of God protecting him?

On June 16, 2015, Donald J. Trump announced his candidacy for President of the United States and like Washington, he has had to endure a “hail of musket balls” (figuratively) ever since. While many on his left and on his right have already fallen in battle (the debates) he is still standing—mostly unscathed.

There has been no safe ground for Mr. Trump as even many on the Fox News Network have taken to attacking him, such as Charles Krauthammer. Although, judging from the last debate in Detroit, it seems like the early rift between Mr. Trump and Megyn Kelly has healed, at least I hope so.

Nevertheless, Mr. Trump continues to be hit with a fusillade of attacks from every direction including: political pundits, newspapers, media elites, liberals, Democrats, conservatives, and Republicans. Yes, even those in his own party!

Of course, for every revolution there is a counter-revolution. You’ve all heard the familiar slogans of internet groups such as: “Never Trump,” “Stop Trump,” and “Dump Trump.” In my opinion, what they are against is anyone who tries to “Make America Great Again.”

Considering the fact that Mr. Trump has conducted a populist “asymmetrical” political campaign, almost everyone, pundits included, have said his rise in popularity is “unprecedented.” Recently during an interview with Bill O’Reilly on the Fox News Network, Mayor Rudy Giuliani said:

Because I think if he gets the nomination there is something going on here. Some magic going on here that none of us have gotten from the very beginning.

There is something going on that he caught that nobody else caught. Because six months ago, everybody was waiting for him to implode.

God chose George Washington. God protected him in battle and elected him to be Commander-in-Chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolution and then to become the first President of the United States. Likewise, considering that the rise of Donald Trump has confounded all conventional political wisdom; could the “magic” that Rudy Giuliani referred to be just another example of divine providence?

The Scripture teaches that God is the one who sets up presidents and rulers and He is also the one who takes them down.

It is He who changes the times and the epochs; He removes kings and establishes kings; He gives wisdom to wise men And knowledge to men of understanding.

Dan. 2:21 (NASB)

Lest we forget, God is the one who looks upon the heart whereas man looks on the outward appearance (1 Sam. 16:7). God decides who should be raised up and who should be put down.

But God is the Judge; He puts down one and exalts another.

Ps. 75:7

Clearly, God has a history of raising up leaders, of His own choosing, that men reject. Could it be happening today with Donald Trump? We just don’t know. While the history of George Washington is a matter of record, the history of the 2016 election is still being written.

I’m not going to make any predictions, so, as Mr. Trump would say, “let’s see what happens.”
