Controversial "Conservative" Dinesh D’Souza is throwing flares about how American Leftists are actually using old Fascist tactics.

He uses the group called ANTIFA as an example.

Perhaps more to this than many Leftists and Democrats would like you to know !!

Brownshirts and Beerhalls and clinical jealousy.

Yup, and every "definition" of Fascism comes from Left Wing "sources" with ties to the Ivory Tower Intellectual Community !!


American Leftists Are Fascists Marching ‘Under the Banner of Anti-Fascism



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.




btw, what ever became of ANTIFA-Girl ?

Neat.

Glad we can add another person to the rather lengthy list of people who have been saying this exact same thing since roughly the election?

Is this why Democrats keep losing so many elections, and have so many officials switching to Republican?

"It's literally impossible to be a liberal and a facist, just google it if you don't believe me"

- Lefty

Just American Leftists? Good thing is that you're not generalizing much, which could be seen as being fascist by definition itself.

Geez... ATS identity policy victims, top shelf comedy gold!

"Muh Antifa are the real fascists"

Some people on the alt-right don't even believe that nonsense.

People clearly have no knowledge of Antifa (unless you read right-propaganda nonsense) or the people who engage in Antifa-actions.

Extreme right or left are bad.
Although, I have talked to conservative who loose their sh(t over legalized MJ, and the "liberals" who loose their sh(t over abortion-vegan and trans garbage.

If someone says do what I think is right under the threat of harm or death, that is terrible and it comes from extreme sides of the spectrum.

I mean, no offence, but people really shouldn't use these words if they don't know what they mean.


Firstly, the 'left' in American politics does not exist. The democrats are a party of the center-right.

Second, you cannot be a leftist and a fascist at the same time.

Third, most leftists are not in fact obsessed with identity politics, this is a smear the far-right uses to discredit anybody that is not like them. Witness the way the word 'snowflake' is thrown around by the far-right.

Fourth, if you cannot see why people marching to stop fascism is EXACTLY THE SAME AS NAZIS then sorry, but frankly I don't have the words anymore to explain how stupid that is.


The American 'left' is not inspired by Nazism. For heaven's sake.

If you want to ask what happened to the actual American Nazis, the ANP, WUFENs, etc, then that's potentially an interesting question. I'm pretty certain all of these white power groups didn't join the Democratic party or start campainging for racial and sexual equality.


And please, remind me who the Neo-Nazis voted for again? That's right, your boy Trump. 'Heil Trump!' they shouted, whilst giving him the Hitler salute.

Who would have thought eh?

The far right issuing propagandist, fake news twaddle to obfuscate the truth... its almost as if they were the spiritual successors to the very people who made propaganda famous as an insidious tool of the oppressor. Who would have thunk it?

Julius Evola



Baron Giulio Cesare Andrea Evola (Italian pronunciation: [ˈɛːvola];[1] 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."[2]


Historian Aaron Gillette described Evola as "one of the most influential fascist racists in Italian history."[3] Evola was admired by the Italian Fascist leader Benito Mussolini.[4] He idolized the Nazi SS. He admired SS head Heinrich Himmler, whom he knew personally.[3] Evola spent World War II working for the Nazi SD.[5] 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."[6]

Sure, it's a generalization.

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.

Face it: the extreme left and extreme right have more in common with each other than they do with anybody else.

Lol, here we have a bunch of actual fascist in a circle&%$* over how 'fascist' the 'others' are. Why don't you folks all get a room? I don't think you're going to tickle anyone else's fancy with right wing propaganda other than your pretty selves.

Why, did they burn down any white trash trailerparks with a few women and their kids already?

I don't know where you're coming from, but the rightwingers in Europe actually kill people. Where is Antifa using the same "tactics" now?

First, "Fascism" is not a tactic, we are not trying to install 'authority' but destroy it. Antifa is not an organisation, it is not a formalized group, it is a decentralized synthesis of individuals.

over 90% are anarchist, some being Marxist, MLM's, socialist etc, You really should know the difference between them before you start talking about them being the same


we are not Liberals/Democrats, in fact, we despise Liberals as much as despising the Right, people and the Media try and frame it as "Violent Democrats" that is such propaganda it is not even funny, as anarchists we seek to destroy politics, not engage in them.

as anarchists, we seek to destroy all forms of authority (political, economic etc), and all forms of 'spooks' (imposed morality, ethics, religion, constitutions, law-and-order, class etc) but not install a new party, or new regime, our goal is individual liberation

trying to use the horseshoe theory is ignorant
