fascism is still rife within the republican right

16 Aug

Very busy today, but I couldn’t resist bringing you this cached page that has since been taken down (did the veil slip?) by Family Security Matters (a rightwing front group of a pro-Bush Washington think tank – linked with PNAC – of which Cheney was once a member), which describes itself as “dedicated to men and women who are seeking answers to the most important question of our time: How to keep our families and our country safe and secure.” They also claim to represent “security moms”.

I’ll reproduce a few paragraphs and leave you to read the rest:

The wisest course would have been for President Bush to use his nuclear weapons to slaughter Iraqis until they complied with his demands, or until they were all dead. Then there would be little risk or expense and no American army would be left exposed. But if he did this, his cowardly electorate would have instantly ended his term of office, if not his freedom or his life.

By elevating popular fancy over truth, Democracy is clearly an enemy of not just truth, but duty and justice, which makes it the worst form of government. President Bush must overcome not just the situation in Iraq, but democratic government.

If President Bush copied Julius Caesar by ordering his army to empty Iraq of Arabs and repopulate the country with Americans, he would achieve immediate results: popularity with his military; enrichment of America by converting an Arabian Iraq into an American Iraq (therefore turning it from a liability to an asset); and boost American prestiege while terrifying American enemies.

President Bush can fail in his duty to himself, his country, and his God, by becoming “ex-president” Bush or he can become “President-for-Life” Bush: the conqueror of Iraq, who brings sense to the Congress and sanity to the Supreme Court. Then who would be able to stop Bush from emulating Augustus Caesar and becoming ruler of the world? For only an America united under one ruler has the power to save humanity from the threat of a new Dark Age wrought by terrorists armed with nuclear weapons.

FYI. Carol A. Taber, president of Family Security Matters, is a regular “expert” on Fox News, the Murdoch-controlled News Channel.

It really is beyond the pale. I mean, we all know that the Bush family has a history of sympathy for fascism, but one has to worry about The President of the United States being allied with a group that publishes an article that demands that he become a dictator. These people are the real anti-Americans, if indeed, America is to stand for anything at all nowadays. Anyone else notice the messianic tone of the piece?

    This isn’t fascism – just the Old American Way of dealing with inconvenient indigenous folk like the ‘Red Indians’. I think they call it Exceptionalism’. Let’s hope it is. Fruitcakes.What worries [but doesn’t surprise] me is that this garbage is being disseminated by a Murdoch-owned agency.

    Quote “If President Bush copied Julius Caesar by ordering his army to empty Iraq of Arabs and repopulate the country with Americans.”It’s a slander on Caesar of course, but isn’t a summary of what we actually see happening in Iraq? Over a million dead now and over twice as many fleeing as refugees. I thought from the very start that the USA was trying to depopulate Iraq, it makes the oil theft easier.To think the UK is playing a part in this, the world faces its biggest threat ever and that includes what started in 1939. Sooner or later we are going to have to side with the opposition which will include Russia and China.

    Per Wikipedia:American exceptionalism (cf. “exceptionalism”) has been historically referred to as the opinion that the United States differs qualitatively from other developed nations, because of its unique origins, national credo, historical evolution, or distinctive political and religious institutions. The difference is typically expressed as some categorical superiority, to which is usually attached some rationalization or explanation that may vary greatly depending on the historical period and the political context.See full article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_exceptionalism

    Fully in the XXIst century this appears more as a joke than serious journalism, were it not for the persons behind the whole matter: the one the news refers to and the one who pays the journalist.I wonder whether the journalist belongs to the high spheres of our societies or whether he belongs to a family of members who walk on the streets about us and who may also think different to this beast.Nevertheless we must be on the alert because when they dare to publish this type of news something must be cooking in the cauldrons of these inheritors of Hitler’s ideas.

    If most Italians, French or Spaniards, or even most British people, were accused by a government official of being anti-Italian, anti-French, anti-Spanish, or anti-British (aka anti-Patriotic) – just because they fundamentally disagreed with that government’s foreign policy – they would laugh at that government official with amused contempt…and rightly so.But if an American (or non-American) fundamentally disagrees with the US government’s foreign policy (eg over Iraq & Iran), they are accused of being anti-American and unpatriotic by most Americans (& Henry Jackson Eustonites).As you say “Exceptionalism” (aka Fascism)…aka Absurdity, Stupidity and Insanity.

    Looking at the full article, I see that the author if this garbage is British!: “FamilySecurityMatters.org Contributing Editor Philip Atkinson is the British born founder of ourcivilisation.com and author of A Study of Our Decline. He is a philosopher specializing in issues concerning the preservation of Western civilization. Mr. Atkinson receives mail at rpa@ourcivilisation.com.”‘A philosopher’ – ye gods! Maybe he should be at the receiving end of some ‘fan mail’ from the Old Country…..
