Anytime someone tells a truth
that the left doesn't like,
suddenly the person is attacked
and viciously attacked
as a racist, or anti-woman, or
a homophobe, or a bigot.


That 'truth' is usually rather opinionated.
Like of course the current champion trump, he is not speaking absolute facts, rather just his opinion on things.

And people can't seem to take criticism anymore without calling the whambulance and screaming PC police brutality.


That is because the politically correct far left
have used the terms racism, homophobe, bigot and anti-woman
as their whambulance for so long
and run their sirens so loud that
people are waking up to what the far left really is.

People who want tight controls on thought,
speech and behavior. To make certain no ones
feelings get hurt.

Know what? I don't care anymore about the far left
babies who can't tolerate hurt feelings or their
overbearing nanny like condescension toward
others.

What Trump has done (I am for Fiorina by the way)
but what Trump has done is give people who
are good and fed up with the babies on the left
who cry racism, bigotry and anti-woman, and homophobe
every time they don't get their way on something.
That is the real whambulance.

But worse really, it is a police siren, because
the left wants to punish people for disagreeing
them and get them fired and ruin their lives,
rather than accepting that not everyone will agree
with them all the time.

I actually thank Trump for showing us that nothing
will really happen when we stand up to the far
lefty bullies
who are trying to impose their thought and
speech control on others
that we have a right to defend ourselves and to
say, enough is enough,
grow up, quit crying like a bunch of little babies
when your feelings get hurt and lash out with
the tired old racist, bigot etc. lines

It has been said before, that people are scared to speak.
I disagree with it.

And get tried of the idea that the trial by social media is only used by the left.

Facisist are typically elitists who don't believe democracy works.

There is no true left or right in facisim. Since fascist policies are set and enforced by a self appointed elitists ruling force which could lean right or left.

Hitler's brand of Fascism could be considered more left wing socialist. While America's Facisist Corpocracy could be considered more right wing capitalist.

Facisim is elitism and has nothing to do with democracy. Outside of the fact that all facisist seem to agree that democracy doesn't work.

And I don't care about the right that can't get passed that you can't just say what ever you want anymore and expect people to bite their tongue.

They are babies that can't handle that people will stand up to what they have to say.

Get over it your self.

Free speech is a two way street, y'all want people to shut up about things offending them, why do you want them silenced?

Do you have a source other than the Conservative Daily News?


Well laws that governments enact and enforcement levels are a good example.

Taxes, extreme laws that make everything illegal, ultra-I.D. systems etc.

but here is another opinion...

fascism is socialism with a capitalist veneer



As an economic system, fascism is socialism with a capitalist veneer. The word derives from fasces, the Roman symbol of collectivism and power: a tied bundle of rods with a protruding ax. In its day (the 1920s and 1930s), fascism was seen as the happy medium between boom-and-bust-prone liberal capitalism, with its alleged class conflict, wasteful competition, and profit-oriented egoism, and revolutionary Marxism, with its violent and socially divisive persecution of the bourgeoisie. Fascism substituted the particularity of nationalism and racialism—“blood and soil”—for the internationalism of both classical liberalism and Marxism.



Hmmm. Roman Symbolism.

*dons Karnak hat*

Let me predict this thread's progression:




Usual ATS Right Wing Adherent: "Yes, I believe this article wholeheartedly."

Average Lefty or Moderate: "But, that's not what fascism means ... that's not historically accurate ... there's no relation to facts."

UATSRWA: "Typical elitist Marxist nonsense! I have a right to my opinion; why are you attacking me as a Christian?!?"

ALOM: .......


This is a creative illustration symbolic of many similar experiences in many similar threads.

Socialism and Communism are left wing

Fascism is right wing as exemplified by the ultra nationalist dictator Benito Mussolini.

Study the origins of the terms "left and right" as they regard politics.

Hint: Start with the French.

I know, right? It's like trying to say gravity doesn't exist. Should have been left alone and not challenged but some just can't take truth. Thus the spin.

I don't want to silence people who
disagree with me,
that is good for our country,
good for us,
makes us think,
makes us look at things in new ways.

There is nothing I enjoy more than
a good discussion with someone who
disagrees with me and is articulate
and stays calm and rational, that is
my idea of a really good time and a
really good conversation.

It is the left with terms like
racist, bigot etc
who have tried to silence
everyone who disagrees with
them. Going so far as to
destroy lives and livelihoods.

I say, debate, great
Disagree, wonderful

Just stop trying to shut down those
who disagree with you by name calling
intimidation and bullying tactics.

I for one will no longer tolerate the
far left bullying, the time for me to
acquiesce when I disagree is over.

Don't like it, go cry in your binky's
and lovies. Just quit trying to just
shut down conversation with insults
rather than engage in discourse
which improves society.

If Fascism is "Right wing", how does Right leaning Libertarianism and genuine Conservatism fit in?

Both ideals prohibit big government and require no mass authority.

Wow what are the odds you would have already read that 30 page article, and disagree with it? I was using this one article because it isn't politically biased and is using examples from things that are going on currently.

What do you disagree with in particular?

I agree with that Beez. Now let's go get a beer while these people fight about definitions of things they don't understand. By the time their done we should be fairly tanked up and won't care anyway.

Wiki Defines as.....


Fascism (/fæʃɪzəm/) is a form of radical authoritarian nationalism[1][2] that came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe. Influenced by national syndicalism, fascism originated in Italy during World War I, in opposition to liberalism, Marxism, and Anarchism. Fascism is usually placed on the far-right within the traditional left–right spectrum.[3][4]


Lets all try to use the same words to mean the same thing, and not spin so much that we can't even talk.
