Can We Stop Pretending?

The Communist Party of the USA has announced that it will throw its support to the Democrat Party in future elections.

One of the leading Democrat candidates for president is an open socialist; and another is a not-quite-closeted-socialist.

The Democrat Mayor of New York City spent his college breaks helping the Communist Regime in Nicaragua, and honeymooned in Communist Cuba.

Let’s just stop pretending the Democrat Party isn’t what it denies being.

  1. If not out-right communist; certainly collectivist, socialist and redistributionist
    “Do as we say, for your own good of-course. Or else….

  2. Transnational progressives: the worst aspects of Communism (International Socialism) and fascism (National Socialism) wrapped up into a great big stinking mess.

  3. fascism is better defined as crony capitalism.

  4. I’ve always thought of fascism as control of the economy without the government bothering to own the means of production. Plus a strong dose of nationalism.

    I’ve never gotten in my mind a good distinction between socialism and communism. Both involve state ownership of various industries, but communism has much more coercion. There must be a better academic definition.

  5. Kevin: Someone once made the distinction this way: socialism is a nice word for communism.

  7. @ Kevin: In his book “Liberal Fascism,” Jonah Goldberg posits that communism is a form of socialism that elevates the government above all else.

  8. Rob was closest, the distinction is more cosmetic in today’s global society, but Communism is typically just Socialism that has metastasized across national boundaries.

    Fascism is better defined as the idea that the State’s wants and needs come before those of the individuals. It’s a tool that can be embraced by leaders on any side of the political spectrum, in the last six or seven decades we’ve seen many Socialist and Communist regimes use this to great and brutal effect.

    It is at least theoretically possible to have Socialism without Fascism. It’s not so hard to pool resources and efforts to achieve a common goal. Scaling it up to the national or global scale can be fraught with perils we’ve become all too familiar with, however.

    Conservatives can find Fascism useful as well. It appears that the Islamic State’s end goal is a return to Seventh Century social lifestyle and values, with nukes to ensure obedience.

    The love and envy that the Progressives that control the US Democrats have long felt towards Europe, the Soviets, China, Cuba and others is understandable, presumably built on the shared Socialist ideology. The fascism in those cultures just comes along for the ride, and is usually rationalized away.

    The real head scratcher is their solidarity with the various radical Islamist movements, which could probably be better described as ultra-Conservative. It appears that the common ideology is the Fascism, not the Liberalism. This is getting more and more of their slave constituents, particularly the Gays and the Jews, to wonder what is going on and ask uncomfortable questions.

  9. Fascism and socialism are both vague concepts with no particular set of rules or identifiers which one can use to accurately categorize them. Unlike “market capitalism” or “private ownership,” they are more like “hope and change” than a specific designation.

    FDR started our swing toward socialism as a state function. We are a long way from social ownership of the means of production.

    Today, Western socialists have ginned up this set of “principles” to follow:

    Democratic socialism is an international movement for freedom, social justice, and solidarity. Its goal is to achieve a peaceful world where these basic values can be enhanced and where each individual can live a meaningful life with the full development of his or her personality and talents, and with the guarantee of human and civil rights in a democratic framework of society.

    One can hardly find a more abstract set of vague concepts for the outline of governance than that. All one need do is imagine a Stalin, Trotsky, Pol Pot, Mao, Castro, Hitler, Mussolini, Franco, Obama, Guevara, or countless others trying to implement the rules for freedom, social justice and solidarity.

    Mark Levin has made the point that the true goal of communists, socialists, fascists, etc. is the dictatorship of the state. Statism is a condition in which the state controls the economy and the society. The state comes first, the society comes second and the individual gets the left overs.

    Authoritarianism is the name of the game. You may call it socialism, fascism or communism, but those concepts all embrace authoritarianism in the hands of the state.

    Obama claims he is not a dictator and then proceeds to act as an authoritarian through the use of executive orders and a mare’s nest of regulatory mischief. Our Constitutional impeachment powers never assumed the republic would reach such a confusion of conflicted complacency that it could not deal with a rogue President.

    What I find remarkable is how many people today can spout boilerplate ideology without any particular concern for “truth, justice and the American Way.” There is no Mighty Mouse on his way to save the day. Statism is our only savior and it is predicated on statist revealed truth, social justice and the fundamental transformation of the American Way.

    No need to know the particulars, you are in good hands with all statism. Now run along and play.
