As someone who has knowledge in the current activities going about, I read you're definition of a fascist, which is plainly wrong about individualism. The anti-individualism is part of the Communist Karl Marx way. It's also, as you forgot to point out, totalitarian, same as communism. The united States is NOT a toltarian government, and that is the MAJOR requirement to be fascist. As well as the alt-right isn't commiting "purges" to beat up the left and torture as the left does.
This is amazing.
1) “ As someone who has knowledge in the current activities going about,”
What does that even mean? Oh, you “have knowledge?” So we’re supposed to defer to your authority on the subject, without any explanation of what “knowledge” you have? WTF does “current activities going about” even mean or refer to???
2) “ I read you’re definition of a fascist,”
Oh, you’re (meaning “you are” as opposed to the possessive “your”) talking about our post yesterday that documented some of the aspects of fascism. OK, we’re following you so far.
3) “ which is plainly wrong about individualism.”
SAY WHAT SON???
4) “The anti-individualism is part of the Communist Karl Marx way.”
OK, here are some problems with the “knowledge” you “have:”
Fascism is therefore opposed to all individualistic abstractions based on eighteenth century materialism;”
“Anti-individualistic, the Fascist conception of life stresses the importance of the State and accepts the individual only in so far as his interests coincide with those of the State, which stands for the conscience and the universal, will of man as a historic entity.”
- Benito fucking Mussolini, “The Doctrine of Fascism.”
Looks like the “knowledge” you “have” conflicts with fascism as described by Il Duce.
Other people who disagree with you about fascism & individualism: Italian historian Emilio Gentile; author and semiotician Umberto Eco, international relations & geopolitics professor Dimitri Kitsikis; professor Karl Polanyi; historian George L. Mosse; political scientist Robert O. Paxton - suffice to say we could go on.
But no, let’s not listen to historians, political scientists, and well-respected authors about the anti-individualist nature of fascism; let’s believe some anonymous rando on Tumblr who claims to “has knowledge in the current activities going about” instead.
b) We’re not going to argue about whether or not Marx was anti-individualist, but has it occured to you that more than one political system can be anti-individualist? Apparently not.
5) “It’s also, as you forgot to point out, totalitarian”
We assumed that people would understand that a political system that brought about the ownership of government by one individual or a small group & organized mass murder equates to a totalitarian state. Evidently we didn’t consider that people like yourself, who have “knowledge in the current activities” might nonetheless have difficulty making inferences on their own.
6) “The united States is NOT a toltarian government, and that is the MAJOR requirement to be fascist.”
Although we think it’s becoming a more-arguable point every single day (let us not forget the recent Day of Patriotic Devotion), we never referenced the United States in our post. You are making a strawman argument and a piss-poor one at that.
As well as the alt-right isn’t commiting “purges” to beat up the left and torture as the left does.”
Son, we never mentioned the so-called “alt-right” in our post. You’re making your 2nd strawman argument in a five-sentence message. GTFO with that shit.
Oh, actually, wait a second: so fascists aren’t committing purges?
You’re making that claim the same week that
the Gestapo ICE arrested nearly 700 people in a nationwide series of raids?
You’re making this claim two weeks after a Muslim woman was attacked at work by a raving Islamophobe?
You’re making this claim less than three weeks after a fascist shot ten people in a mosque, killing six of them?
You’re making this claim within a month of Donald Trump issuing an executive order barring immigrants, refugees, and even U.S. residents from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States?
But you claim it’s “the left” that beats & tortures people, huh?
Now please excuse us, we have to get back to our George Soros-funded torture chamber to beat & torture some fascists.
