Born-Again Fascism

Fascist movements dominated Europe from 1919 to 1944.

THEN……Hitler rose to power on the wings of an angel. A “devout God-fearing man” emerged in his autobiography, Mein Kampf. A good Christian, he was careful to mention “the Lord” and “the Almighty” quite often. Jesus was lauded as “the great founder of a new doctrine.” “I am fighting for the work of the Lord”, claimed Herr Hitler, who was soon after voted Fuhrer by German “people of faith.” The Fuhrer began immediately to “fight for the work of the Lord” against the Jewish population of Europe and anyone else who didn’t fit in his divine fantasy.

#8 from Dr. Laurence W. Britt’s list of 14 Characteristics of Fascism….. A fascist political party, movement, or government. (2002)

Religion and Government are Intertwined…….Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. They attach themselves to the predominant religion and portray themselves as defenders of that religion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders. Propaganda keeps “the defenders of the faith” and “the opponents of the godless” images before public while any opposition to those in power is portrayed as an attack on religion.

NOW…….Evangelical Christian political organizations along with token defender of the faith, Tom DeLay, have stated that any opposition to Bush’s judicial choices by the Democrats is AGAINST PEOPLE OF FAITH.

THEN…….”The Fascist State lays claim to rule in the economic field no less than in others; it makes its actions felt throughout the length and breadth of the country by means of its corporate, social, and educational institutions, and all the political, economic, and spiritual forces of the nation, organized in their respective associations, circulate within the state.” - Benito Mussolini

NOW…….”Our job is to reclaim America for Christ, whatever the cost. As the vice regents of God, we are to exercise godly dominion and influence over our neighborhoods, our schools, our government, our literature, and arts, our sports arenas, our entertainment media, our news media, our scientific endeavors--in short, over every aspect and institution of human society.” - D. James Kennedy, Founder, Coral Ridge Ministries

THEN…….”All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state.”

“Fascism is a religious concept.” - Benito Mussolini

Interesting post. One of the things my blog partner constantly reminds about is the connection between Hitler, Christianity, fascism and the bashing of liberals.

Welcome to the Progressive Women Bloggers webring, btw.
