Conservative author argues obsession with political correctness mirrors Nazi thought conformity
Despite the plethora of leftist boys and girls crying about fascist wolves in Republican clothing, it is the modern progressive movement and the Democratic Party that are the standard bearers of fascism in America today, according to Dinesh D’Souza.
In his new book, “The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left,” the conservative author and filmmaker documents the fascist foundations of modern American leftism, and exposes the fundamental lie that asserts fascism is a right-wing phenomenon.
“Today fascism marches under the banner of anti-fascism,” D’Souza told LifeZette in an interview Friday.
Baron Giulio Cesare Andrea Evola (Italian pronunciation: [ˈɛːvola]; 19 May 1898 – 11 June 1974), better known as Julius Evola (/ˈdʒuljəs ɛˈvoʊlə/), was an Italian philosopher, painter, and esotericist. According to the scholar Franco Ferraresi, "Evola’s thought can be considered one of the most radical and consistent anti-egalitarian, anti-liberal, anti-democratic, and anti-popular systems in the twentieth century. It is a singular (though not necessarily original) blend of several schools and traditions, including German idealism, Eastern doctrines, traditionalism, and the all-embracing Weltanschauung of the interwar conservative Revolution with which Evola had a deep personal involvement."
Historian Aaron Gillette described Evola as "one of the most influential fascist racists in Italian history." Evola was admired by the Italian Fascist leader Benito Mussolini. He idolized the Nazi SS. He admired SS head Heinrich Himmler, whom he knew personally. Evola spent World War II working for the Nazi SD. During his trial in 1951, Evola denied being a Fascist and instead referred to himself as a ‘superfascist’. Concerning this statement, historian Elisabetta Cassina Wolff wrote that "It is unclear whether this meant that Evola was placing himself above or beyond Fascism."
But when you use the same tactics (looking at you, forcible suppression of opposing viewpoints) then you sort of don't get to call yourself "anti" anything.
