The Fascists Among Us

The Fascists Among Us
By Selwyn Duke


It’s no secret that hurling names about is as common in the political world as it is in a grammar school playground. One oft-used pejorative is “fascist,” which, along with racist, sexist, homophobe and others, tends to be least understood by those who utter it most. And because these damning terms are used wantonly, more to discredit than describe, they tend to be misapplied. Then, soon, calling someone a fascist becomes akin to calling him a snake: more a vague impugnment of character then a characterization of methods and goals.

Rhetoric aside, however, I’ve come to realize that true fascists do exist in our time. But who are they? How can they be correctly identified? To discover the answer, let’s start with a trip down Bad Memory Lane.

Another word that makes the rounds these days is “Brownshirts,” which, as many know, harks back to the SA, a paramilitary organization that was instrumental in Adolf Hitler’s rise to power in 1933. The Brownshirts were the adolescent Nazi Party’s muscle, squelching opposition through violence and intimidation. Shout-downs and beat-downs were their stock-in-trade, making their name a metaphor for fascist intolerance and oppression.

Now for a little current events. There was a university, some speakers and an audience. The speakers had been invited to the university in the name of intellectual debate and free expression. Some of the audience, however, would have none of it. Intolerant of the views being aired, they shouted-down the speakers and repeatedly called one of the black representatives “nigger.” Then, in a final fit of hatred and rage, in quintessential Brownshirt style, they stormed the stage violently, squelching voices that would have contributed to a fruitful exchange of ideas.

But what was the university? And, more to the point, who were the speakers and the audience? Were the guests communists or advocates for illegal immigration and the audience right-wing ideologues? No, not at all.

DONAL thank you for that amazing expose' of today's fascists! A few things recently have shocked the hell out of me and they were both in the article.

First I saw the Columbia U assault on the Minutemen on Fox News about two weeks ago and was stunned that the assigned police did NOTHING to stop the commie animals! I hope this costs the Marxists that run Columbia DEARLY in the pocketbook. It was an infuriating diplay!

Secondly the insane episode of Marxist thought control that took place in England. Are they going fuc-ing crazy! Let's be charitable towards the school and the comrade teacher involved just for the sake of argument. Let's assume that the little English girl called the Paki kids "ragheads" and told them to learn English or "go home!"
Would this be grounds to be ARRESTED!!! Hell no!
Little Codie was charged with committing a "section five racial public order offense." George Orwell would recognize this type of mind control, so would Joe Stalin. This is a thought control nightmare come to life.

What the Sam Hell is going on in the land which gave us life and gave the Magna Carta to humanity? One of the terrible things is that England is deteriorating in front of our eyes. Say it ain't so. Wake me up and tell me it was just a bad dream.

It gets to the point of ludicrous, doesn't it?
I just shake my head in amazement and dismay!
Good evening, G*D bless and Maranatha!

Those people will pay. They never think they'll have to pay--but they will. I always say 'you get the world you make'. They are leaving an awful world for their kids.

When the "man on horseback" arrives, they will get what they so long for...and the world they receive will literally be Hell on Earth! And they will not get it, but they will support it, because their hearts will be darkened! Their ways are perverse and they refuse the free gift of G*D for "peace and safety"! They are of their "Father" the Father ofLies, and they have accepted those lies as truth, therefore they will become worse and worse!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

Someone tell the "americanthinker" that it was Andres Serrano and not Mapplethorpe who photographed "Piss Christ".

An interesting work. I'm sure that thr idea of just what constitutes a sacrilege can't be supported by the likes of "merry widow" since she knows and would simply have the rest listen to her chattering.

As for someone hitting Coulter with a pie, well Coulter is theater and that was an extension of the performance. Doesn't seem to have slowed Olive Oyl down any and it was a more honest act than most oall of her bull.

I'm on the fence about the "minutemen" incident. The group is a well know bunco racket fleecing the suckers for cash contributions and accomplishing nothing so their standing can be questioned. They should not have had the stage rushed but the Columbia Young Republicans should have invited reputable speakers who aren't total bum wads.

plucky- I didn't call for serrano's death or anything of the sort, he's an idiot and G*D can take care of HIMself. Isn't it interesting that the leftistas are the screamers?

Duckster, what do you mean "I'm on the fence" about the Minuteman incident. A bunch of leftist brown shirts terrorized and silenced their fellow Americans and DENIED THEIR FREEDOM OF SPEECH! You are either for freedom of speech or you are against it. Your choice.

The only'' theather'' is you ducky. The fine young cannibals of Columbia U and the pie-throwers are the living embodiment of the Nazis the emulate. And how appropo that is since the nazis were leftists. The tatics of the two however are meant to achieve the same end;silencing opponets and displaying their utter lack of an arguement of any kind and a murderous,child-like refusal to hear the truth or debate issues. And don't you ever insult my friend "The Merry Widow'' here again you vicious little git. J'Mac.

J'Mac- He is insulted and offended by the Truth, so what he says to me is really meant for the G*D he has rejected! But thak you from your "lil' sis"!
England is becoming a living example of "1984", and the leftistas can't accept that they are the silencers! Europe is worse!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

TMW you wrote that the "leftistas can't accept that they are the silencers." I don't think they care a bit actually as long as they prevail. You statement gives them credit for having a conscience. Take another look at the Duck's comments.

Good morning to you!

Morgan- I think that secretly they are delighted at the silencing of Truth! They will deny it, but as my late Mother used to say,"Thou protesteth too much!"!
As for a conscience, they have seared their's with the hot iron rod of power!
