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.

  1. >corporate control of government is called Fascism

    Well, that's about as backwards as he could get it.

    >a more highly regulated society

    The 2010 Code of Federal Regulations consists of 225 volumes, with a total of 35,367 pages of regulations. In fine print, not large font. It's hard to believe that there are people who want us more regulated than that. It's hard to believe that there are people who thought it was fine to regulate us that much in the first place.

    Well, considering the distaste that so many people (particularly those using the oxymoron of all oxymorons "liberal" to describe themselves) have for liberty, personal responsibility, and all that other grown-up stuff, I guess it isn't that hard to believe.
