Fascism in America - Then and Now
Remember when George W. Bush, of America's foremost fascist family, tried to sell you his twisted form of democracy under the guise of an "Ownership Society"? Here's what was said in the 30's about ownership... " The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in essence, is fascism - ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power... Among us today a concentration of private power without equal in history is growing." - Franklin D. Roosevelt
We not only defeated the fascists in Europe - we defeated them HERE AT HOME and must do so again!
Think of Governor Snyder of Michigan dissolving the entire political structure of a small town - all of whom were elected by the voters of that town. Think of those who inherited the Whirlpool Corporation, shipped all of the jobs overseas, and pay no tariffs on the products they export back into the States - BOYCOTT WHIRLPOOL! They are driving Governor Snyder's illegal takeover of an entire Michigan town (which used to have jobs at Whirlpool). Soon there will be a golf course and expensive homes for the corporate elites in Benton Harbor. Wow, private lakefront parcels on the beach that used to belong to the town's people. Look at the dirty work of Scott Walker of Wisconsin, who represents not the people of Wisconsin, but instead does the bidding of the Koch Brothers, who bought him body and soul. A free people in the state of Wisconsin are forbidden to be members of a Union? Chemicals in Lake Michigan anyone? The Tea party and the GOP are symbiotic FASCISTS.
The Republicans of the 1930's were directly involved with the German and Italian Fascists. General Electric pays no taxes in the USA like the rest of us do. Back in the 30's General Electric, a fascist corporation, openly supported the fascist movement in Europe and the United States. General Motors and IBM were solid fascists ideologically, provided massive financial support to Hitler and provided vehicles, and other necessary war supplies for his army. Our Dad's, granddads, and other family members faced Italian, German, and yes, even Japanese soldiers supplied by American and British corporations.
Fascists put money and power above people. The people are to be completely controlled and enslaved by the Corporate State. That's why no unions, no social security, no medical care and no jobs. The radical right wing fascists want Americans to be homeless, hungry, sick, weak, and afraid. The only jobs will be in the military which will be busy waging never ending wars for complete global control all over the planet. A grim future for our children and grandchildren.
Fascist corporations of the 30's include JP Morgan, DuPont, Colgate, Standard Oil, Chase National Bank, Goodyear Tire, Heinz Foods among many, many more. There are even more fascist corporations today with many of those above still working to end democracy.
Charles Lindbergh, aviator hero was deeply involved with fascist Germany. William Randolph Hearst used his publishing concerns to propagandize American fascism and make Germany and Hitler look good by not printing some of the news, or by heavily slanting it. Today, Rupert Murdoch carries on for Hearst. Racist Henry Ford, of Ford Motors and a radical, rabid fascist was special to Hitler who said of Ford, "He is my inspiration". Hitler kept a life-sized photo cardboard cut out of Mr. Ford in his office. All of America's corporate fascists talked peace to keep the US from going to war with their fascist cash cows in Europe and Asia
Corporatism or Fascism is chipping away at American Democracy every day. The Republicans and Tea Baggers are no longer hiding their fascist values. They are actively and purposely dismantling American laws and the rights of the American people. As Hitler rose to power in the 30's over 400 hundred years of German laws were gutted. Although the titles remained the same the content had been manipulated to reflect the values of Hitler and the Nazi Party or replaced entirely to restrict or remove the rights of German citizens. The co-opted German legal system formed the foundation of Hitler's fascist government and enabled Nazi aggression across Europe.
The actions of Governors Walker and Snyder and those of the radical conservative governors of several other states are part of a much bigger plan.
FASCISM MUST BE STOPPED.
ROOSEVELT AND AMERICAN WORKERS STOPPED THE FASCISTS BEFORE - WE MUST DO IT AGAIN!
WE CANNOT ALLOW THESE IRRESPONSIBLE, INDIFFERENT, SOCIOPATHS DESTROY DEMOCRACY AND THE ENTIRE PLANET!
Forget the Taliban over there - the Real War for "Our Freedom" is here in America.
American Democracy must be protected from the homegrown predators our midst.
