Ah Ha!

It took a long time but I have finally figgered out how the Left (American and international) can keep on calling Trump a “fascist”.
Here are the hallmarks of fascism:

Centralized autocratic government. Trump didn’t expand federal power; during the height of the pandemic he was excoriated for refusing to usurp the power of the states. He did not spend the flyer on of his Inauguration Day signing hundreds of executive orders like Biden did.

Severe economic and social regimentation: this is complicated. He did initiate the lockdown, although it was s’posed to be only for 2 weeks. During the Covid crisis he was…ploughed under by the left, whose criticism of him was that he was TOO LIBERAL on this issue. He wanted “small” (meaning independent) businesses to be able to reopen, the Left did not, it wanted everyone dependent on govt handouts. The Left excoriated him for not always wearing a mask, for routinely stating the hope that we could get back to normal soon. Oh NOOOO said the Left, our “normal” was evil! It was the cause of climate change and systemic racism! Fauciface forever! So although Trump did allow the most extreme “social and economic regimentation “ our country has EVER experienced, he was still routinely excoriated for trying to shorten our misery. Complicated but I’d still hafta say Trump was NOT in favor of economic and social regimentation, on balance. It’s the Dems who were, and are.

Forcible oppression of opposition: oh, this is too easy! Starting with “J20 in 2016, featuring James Hodgkinson’ attempt to decapitate our government in June, and continuing through the long hot summer of 2020, with delightful detours like Jussie Smolett’s box, and culminating on a raid on Trumps private residence (interrupting his team’s ongoing negotiations with the National archives) it is the Dems and the Left who are ROUTINELY, CONSTANTLY and REPEATEDLY engaging in such tactics.

Consolidation of corporate power with state power: Again, too easy. ARE there any non-woke multi-billion dollar Anerican companies? WERE there any such companies who declared for trump in either election? CTFO.

Militarism: Did Trump get us into any wars? Well? Take your time, but while you’re thinkin’ I’d remind you that he was excoriated for openly trying to “get along” with peop,e like Un, who at the time trump took office appeared poised to bomb the US or release a devastating EMP in our skies. Whereas it’s the Dems and the Left who are so hot ‘n’wet for “democracy” in Ukraine—un till they hold. A “Referendum” election over there, which is, of course a mere “sham”—yuh, reckon that why they’ve been engaged in a bloody civil way in Ukraine since 2014 with a lot of people fighting and dying to achieve this very result.

Exaltation of the nation: AH HA!!!!! There you’ve got’im!!! “America First”: fascism incarnate!

SOOOOO, what did we learn, boys and girls? ( and yes, I use those words because IMHO if you don’t know what sex you are, you’re too addled to “learn” anything)

Here’s the dilly:

it’s OKAY, no, it’s de rigeur, even laudable, to walk, talk, act and legislate like a Fascist—as long as you profess to HATE America! That’s the key!

And of loving America, wanting to make her great again, Trump, and anyone who voted for him and will again if he runs, are, on that sole basis, undeniably guilty of “fascism”.

  1. But this just shows ya: I mean, Antifa’s tactics, going around beating people up and destroying businesses , were exactly what the Italian Fascisti did, right? Read Elena Ferrante! This is an obvious parallel, it hits you over the head—yet no one ever mentions it. For why? Cuz Antifa are on the Left.
    I really mean it: of the usual tenets of “fascism”, there are NONE that Trump can plausibly be accused of—except nationalism.
    And if that’s a crime, lock me up.

  2. Putting America and Americans first now equals = racism = fascism = Republicans = punch a NAZI = every and each of the +70 million President Trump voters krap

    That is the state of play.
    Side Bar: Plus nobody really gives a shit about veterans of foreign wars.

    1. A lot of people do care, Simon. It seems as though they don’t, but they do. Most Americans are now living paycheck to paycheck: most are struggling to keep their own heads above water.

      The active pro-lifers I know are and always have been finacially secure and stable-not rich, but stable, in other words, not living paycheck to paycheck. And that is just one example. People who are stuggling may not seem to care about veterans or abortion or anything. It isn’t that they don’t care.

        1. I went into a public-‘ouse to get a pint o’ beer,
          The publican ‘e up an’ sez, “We serve no red-coats here.”
          The girls be’ind the bar they laughed an’ giggled fit to die,
          I outs into the street again an’ to myself sez I:

          O it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, go away”;
          But it’s “Thank you, Mister Atkins”, when the band begins to play,
          The band begins to play, my boys, the band begins to play,
          O it’s “Thank you, Mister Atkins”, when the band begins to play.

          I went into a theatre as sober as could be,
          They gave a drunk civilian room, but ‘adn’t none for me;
          They sent me to the gallery or round the music-‘alls,
          But when it comes to fightin’, Lord! they’ll shove me in the stalls!

          For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, wait outside”;
          But it’s “Special train for Atkins” when the trooper’s on the tide,
          The troopship’s on the tide, my boys, the troopship’s on the tide,
          O it’s “Special train for Atkins” when the trooper’s on the tide.

          Yes, makin’ mock o’ uniforms that guard you while you sleep
          Is cheaper than them uniforms, an’ they’re starvation cheap;
          An’ hustlin’ drunken soldiers when they’re goin’ large a bit
          Is five times better business than paradin’ in full kit.

          Then it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, ‘ow’s yer soul?”
          But it’s “Thin red line of ‘eroes” when the drums begin to roll,
          The drums begin to roll, my boys, the drums begin to roll,
          O it’s “Thin red line of ‘eroes” when the drums begin to roll.

          We aren’t no thin red ‘eroes, nor we aren’t no blackguards too,
          But single men in barricks, most remarkable like you;
          An’ if sometimes our conduck isn’t all your fancy paints,
          Why, single men in barricks don’t grow into plaster saints;

          While it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, fall be’ind”,
          But it’s “Please to walk in front, sir”, when there’s trouble in the wind,
          There’s trouble in the wind, my boys, there’s trouble in the wind,
          O it’s “Please to walk in front, sir”, when there’s trouble in the wind.

          You talk o’ better food for us, an’ schools, an’ fires, an’ all:
          We’ll wait for extry rations if you treat us rational.
          Don’t mess about the cook-room slops, but prove it to our face
          The Widow’s Uniform is not the soldier-man’s disgrace.

          For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Chuck him out, the brute!”
          But it’s “Saviour of ‘is country” when the guns begin to shoot;
          An’ it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ anything you please;
          An’ Tommy ain’t a bloomin’ fool – you bet that Tommy sees!
