    Fascism 2.0

    Unlike Stormfront, or the Aryan Nations, the more shrewd neo-Fascist of the oughts is way too on the ball to thrust his arm in the air. At least when the Media happen to be in force. Rather than a frontal Blitzkrieg, one of the premier methods that today’s Fascist will employ is to accuse his opponents of that title.

    A recent case in point:

    “Do you realize how offensive that is?” asked CNN reporter Susan Roesgen, referring to a stunningly Orwellian DoubleThink poster which had Barack Obama morphed with Adolf Hitler.

    “I think that he is a Fascist, ” replied a Mussolini in shades, a baseball cap and an orange ( instead of brown ) jacket.

    “Why?” asked undaunted reporter.

    “because he is!” yelled TNG Mussolini, the dark glasses barely concealing his venum. The same venum which had been responsible for the “The American Taxpayers Are The Jews For Obama’s Oven” sign.

    History will judge Ms. Roesgen as a Brave American, standing up to the next generation of Mussolini’s and Hitler’s.

    And Fascist 2.0? Forever hiding behind his shades and shadiness, he will be judged as a Bigot. As well as a Coward.

    Very sincerely,

    I admire the american for many reasons.and one of that is:they are capable to smell the fire in the smoke.A parade like that in my country against all socialists mistakes of MR.Lula must be insane.I put the american society in my prayers.And thank God this nightmare called MR.Obama finishes in four years or even less.socialism sucks.

    So one person posts that he felt the Chicago tea party was a republican/partisan rally—another person posts that it was not. Both were there, both have their memories of their own experiences. So which is right? Which is wrong? NEITHER YOU IDIOTS! For crying out loud, can’t you all just agree to have your own experiences instead of harping on someone that they’re own experience was “wrong”?! That kind of attitude just lends more truth to the fact that “if you disagree with us, you’re one of THEM!”. Whatever happened to the good ole U S of A where EVERYONE has their right to their own opinion and beliefs? It is pure dillusion and outright lying for anyone to say or think that the tea parties were anything other than a republican/right wing lead event. I AM ONE OF THOSE RIGHT WINGERS. I make no apology for that fact. The tea parties were “somewhat” billed as “non-partisan” in nature—or “just common folk tired of high taxes, not Obama bashers”. But that is an outright falsehood. The parties were MOSTLY about bashing Obama (because he deserves it) and bashing anyone or anything that is/was not republican or conservative. To say otherwise is disingenuous. Leftoverbacon has many important and viable points. TG has great points as well. Why are a lot of you so afraid and so terrified of admitting to the very behaviour you practiced that day? I’m admitting it–why can’t you all? Stand uup and be counted—own up to what you believe AND the way you showed it that day at the tea party! You can’t have it both ways–own up to your actions people. Yes, not everyone acted poorly or bashed Obama, but many did–admit that fact! The pics of signs on this very blog show the bashing of our president–so why deny it. That was the very flavor of the tea parties—amongst other flavors to be sure. Politics is all about power–both sides of the aisle. And republicans, don’t try and be all high and mighty and say that that isn’t so. Dems, get off your soap box, you are just as guilty of power mongering.

    Thanks for the photos. Love them! In our liberal, tax-happy university town of Gainesville, FL (where men are allowed in the women’s public restrooms) we had 1,000 show up for our tea party on University Ave. The horns were blaring! But wouldn’t you know the horrible Gainesville Sun newspaper (affiliated with the NY Times) printed a photo of one lone protester holding a sign. So typical of the press here….not any better nationally apparently.

    Want to see a good example of Obama’s taxation without representation: take the tobacco industry, before the tax tobacco sold for $1.0969 per pound…after the tax tobacco is now $48.00 per pound. Just like one of the signs said,” Big Government Equals Poor Tax Payers.” We need to clean house and get rid of the Big Government and put “We The People” in instead.

    All those Angry White Men are right, if someone is not 100% in agreement with your views, then they’re against you, and against all that is righteous and holy. Now repeat after me: tax-cuts, tax-cuts, war on terra! Tax-cuts, tax-cuts, war on terra!
