More Liberal Gibberish Yet Once Again

Before I get into the the issue first let us understand what fascism is. It is an economic and political system that allow for the private ownership of property and business however both are highly regulated by the state. As in Fascist Italy and Nazis Germany to point to just two fascist states of the 20th century.

Fascism is not, as departing Congressman John Hall D-NY understands it to be. I do not know what school he attended but I am sure glad I was not among his classmates. He attributes his understanding of fascism to his school days stating that; "I learned when I was in social studies class in school that corporate ownership or corporate control of government is called Fascism. As can clearly be seen from the prior paragraph {be sure to checkout the link}this soon to be retired congressman does not know what he is talking about.

In a wide-ranging interview before he prepares to leave the House of Representatives, Hudson Valley Congressman John Hall warned that the nation could quickly descend into Fascism if more is not done to curb the influence of corporate money in politics.

Speaking about the Citizen's United decision, which allowed unregulated flow of cash into campaign coffers, Hall said, "I learned when I was in social studies class in school that corporate ownership or corporate control of government is called Fascism. So that's really the question— is that the destination if this court decision goes unchecked?"

Hall said that the flow of corporate dollars is why he and the Democrats lost control of Congress.

"The country was bought," he said. "The extremist, most recent two appointees to the Supreme Court, who claimed in their confirmation hearings before the Senate that they would not be activist judges, made a very activist decision in that it overturned more than a century of precedent. And as a result there were millions of extra dollars thrown into this race."

The extra money floating around, he said, compounded the Democrats weaknesses on the economy, unemployment and the mortgage crisis. And he said that for of the accomplishments of the lame duck Congress, their failure to pass the Disclose Act—which would have at least forced corporations to reveal who they were donating to—stood out a black mark on the session.

If there is a threat of creeping fascism it is likely it come from the left. Of course the Democrats will point to the Supremer Court decision as being responsible for this alleged creep to fascism in America. This amounts to nothing more than smoke and mirrors and it is a lie.

I point you to the book by Jonah Goldberg "Liberal Fascism" The Secret History of the American Left, from Mussolini to the Politics of Change. It is the Democrats (liberal progressives) that want and fight for more Government control and regulation of our lives and businesses. If we allow the liberal progressives to have their way we will become a more highly regulated society and our economic system will become much like the ones the soon to be ex congressman warns against. But of course that is the liberal progressive plan isn't it?

The progressive left continues to use the same old tactics of attempting to confuse the truth with their desired fantasy that they call reality. And they are betting on the long haul and that Americans educated in the progressive public school system will soon not be able to tell the difference.

Updated by LCR: Per a tip from D. Eris at Poli-Tea, a must-read post at Third Party and Independent Daily, "Wikileaks: U.S. Diplomats Bemoan "Primacy of Freedom of Speech" in Danish Cartoons". Yes my friends, that is fascism.


  1. "congressman does not know what he is talking about." Say it aint so! Seems to me that it is a standard for elected officials...
    And IMHO, we have had Fascism here as far as business is concerned for years. I believe it is the biggest hindrance for business in any nation. The most difficulty I had in my business, ALWAYS Govt!

  2. Remember that the economic stance preached by fascism is called "corporatism" (from the latin "corpus"=head), in which the "head"(state) controls the economy. Hall is confusing that kind of corporatism with an economy ran by corporations (yes, he's an asshole).

  3. @Godopunk: actually, corpus means "body", and corporatism was essentially having economic "corporations" (i.e. syndicates of industry heads and workers) take control if their specific sectors of the economy, all within the overarching plan of the dictator (naturally). (An excellent and concise explanation can be found here >>

    In any event, you and Les are absolutely correct that Hall is an idiot.

  4. An accurate understanding of "fascism" quickly leads one to recognize that Hall is an idiot that was educated by the dysfunctional public educational system.
