The Tea Party is a fascist organization having either all or most of the common elements of Fascism.

Razoreye001 2012/05/06 03:50:21
Here are the key elements of Fascism;

1. You are obsessed with national power and pride and believe your
country doesn’t have to follow the rules and shouldn’t ever apologize
for doing things that are wrong. You think your nation can do whatever
it wants.

(The Tea Party believes in American Exceptionalism, isn't that exactly what's described here?)


2. You believe in the rule of the few, election rigging, political
decisions being made by a select group of officials behind closed doors,
embrace the informal and unregulated exercise of political power,
arbitrary deprivation of civil liberties, and little tolerance for
meaningful opposition.

(Notice how the Tea Party pushes for new voting laws.)


3. You believe in survival of the fittest, an every man for himself
mentality that causes you to believe that poor people and sick people
are weak and must be punished. You think rich people are strong because
they are wealthy and that they should rule us. You also believe your
race is superior to all others.

(Notice how the Tea Party objectifies poor people as weak and believe that the rich somehow are entitled to outrageous business practices.)


4. You use the media as a political propaganda machine to target a
specific audience and to push your agenda on others. You make sure the
media demonizes your opponents and takes your side on nearly every
issue. You use your propaganda machine to play on the fears of others.

(Isn't this the purpose of Fox News?)


5. You are obsessed with security, and war. You feed this obsession
by spending trillions of dollars building up a large military force and
are willing to sacrifice domestic programs your people count on to keep
your military huge. You start unnecessary and costly wars and you are
paranoid of other nations.

(Note it is the Tea Party that is talking about nuclear preemptive strikes on Iran.)





6. You are driven to indoctrinate others into your way of thinking.
So much so, that you try to re-write history, change the way school
children are taught and you brainwash the ignorant. You use your
propaganda machine as a tool to achieve this.

(What does the Tea Party do concerning Global Climate Change or trying to define a fetus as a sentient being?)


7. You fear and demonize intelligent people who have a higher
education because they are the ones who can thwart your effort to
brainwash people. You then attempt to prevent others from achieving a
higher education because you want the people as ignorant as possible so
you can convince them that your way is the right way.

(The Tea Party believes that the Schools and the Teachers Unions are part of a Communist conspiracy.)


8. You have a deep hatred and fear of communists and you instill your
followers with hatred and fear of others by accusing your political
opponents of being communists. This gives you an easy scapegoat to blame
when things go wrong. Any person or policy you don’t like is branded as
communism.

(The Tea Party constantly mocks there political adversaries as Communists or Socialists.)


9. You disrespect women and think their place is in the home. You
believe women are weak and cannot do things that men do. You believe
that sexual harassment or assault is no big deal and that the only thing
women are good for is cooking meals and having babies.

(Isn't it the Tea Party that wants to ban abortion and deny birth control coverage for women?)


10. You strongly align yourself with corporations and you support
corporate money and influence in government. You despise government
regulations that keep corporations honest because you believe everything
should be controlled by the free market and that corporations should be
allowed to do whatever they please.

(ALEC backs the Tea Party)


11. You are obsessed with Christianity. You seek to declare a
Christian State and to impose religious laws on all the people across
the country and the world. You believe other religions are inferior and
that those who practice them should either be converted or destroyed.

(Name one Tea Party candidate running for office in recent years that wasn't christian or on the rare occasion Jewish?)


12. You believe your race is superior and seek to disenfranchise or
humiliate other races. You believe in legalized discrimination and
fantasize about a return to times when the races were separate or when
those of color were enslaved. You use code words in an attempt to hide
your racism and you make laws that weaken the influence of those of
color. Immigration and voting laws in particular.

(May I mention the use of the Confederate flag, a flag that symbolized the rule of large white plantation owners owning millions of slaves from Africa.)


13. You absolutely despise unions. To you and those like you, labor
unions represent the empowerment of workers. Since you believe
corporations can do whatever they want, you see organized labor as a
threat because they fight for higher wages, health care, safety
regulations, less hours, vacations, sick days, and holidays off. This
obviously threatens the amount of money corporations can give to you and
your cause so you brand unions as proponents of socialism and make laws
that severely weaken them so that corporations can have a cheap,
mindless labor force.

(Is there anything the Tea Party hates more than Unions?)


14. You are obsessed with crime and a major supporter of punishing
those who commit crimes. So much so, that you don’t care about the
concept of ‘innocent until proven guilty.’ You are proud of executing
people and aren’t bothered if an innocent person is killed. You seek to
make harsher laws, especially laws that target specific groups of people
such as immigrants, women, and people of color. You also oppose Miranda
rights and using humane interrogation tactics and you seek to undermine
the independent judiciary.

(Conservatives are more likely to support laws banning Marijuana for no reason.)


15. You believe every election should go your way and to reach that
goal, you push voting laws that disenfranchise those who traditionally
vote for opponents such as people of color, the elderly, college
students, and the poor. You even stoop to fixing elections in some cases
and complain when your opponents challenge the vote counts.

(Remember all those Voting Laws ALEC tried to get passed and succeeded in a few states.)


16. You believe in rewarding your friends with positions when you
gain power and you reward those who support you with government
contracts and money, especially corporations. You also do your best to
aid your supporters in any way you can, such as repealing undesirable
pieces of legislation and regulations. You often have something to gain
financially from this.

(The Koch Brothers give extensive amounts of money to the Republican Party and the Republican Party does favors for the groups like ALEC.)


17. You create scapegoats to blame when problems arise. Whether it’s
communists, liberals, minorities, homosexuals, the poor, or
non-Christians, one thing is for certain. You and your propaganda tool
will blame each and every one of those groups for bad things that happen
even if you were the cause of the problems in the first place.

(how many times has the Tea Party demonized Atheists, Homosexuals, Liberals, and the Poor.)


18. You take advantage of a national disaster such as an economic
collapse or an attack to demonize your opponents and push your agenda.
You use these events to strike fear into the population in an attempt to
scare people into voting for you and your cause. It’s all about fear
and scare tactics.

(Not unlike using the deficit to scare people away from voting for democrats.)

You!

    If Fascism and Socialism are the same thing, then why weren't Stalin and Hitler staunch allies? They weren't, they HATED each other. Hitler and the Nazis did start a bunch of social programs, but they didn't do it for economic reasons. They did it to build loyalty and obedience to the Nazi State thru brainwashing and intimidation and demonizing the "undesirable" groups in society (Jews being just one of them). A lot of business leaders jumped on board because the Nazis promised an economic revival, which they accomplished thru rearming and then invading Europe. Fascism is way more dangerous than Communism because Fascist states are capable of building strong economies to support themselves, while Communist states are saddled with the inefficiencies of top-down planning.

    1. You clearly don't understand what American exceptionalism is. It is the concept that the system the United States establishes is the best, that it is the most successful at raising people up out of poverty and correcting moral injustices over time. You can argue if that has worked all you want, but it has little to do with nationalism.

    2. This is humorous because of the incredible, ballsy ignorance a person would have to have been born with, at level of incomprehensible testicular fortitude combined with absolute idiocy to claim that supporting laws which require an ID to vote fits this category at all.

    3. Okay, you must be a troll. Because no one with any understanding of the Tea Party, of economics, of conservatism or libertarianism or of social Darwinism could possible believe this fits the Tea party. No, they don't support a welfare system that holds down the poor and expands the riches ability to subjugate and control them. That doesn't mean they hate the poor.

    4. That isn't the Tea Party, Fox existed long before the Tea party. But brush that fun reality check aside, the left has propaganda machines as well. MSNBC, Media Matters, just to name two.

And even that aside, every group, no matter what their ideology, does this. They have to or they will never advance that ideology. Communism, Socialism, Fascism, Liberalism, Conservatism, Libertarianism, etc. all do it.

    5. Wow, you sort of got this one right. But only if you ignore the fact that Obama continued those wars, JFK started Vietnam, which was continued by LBJ (and Nixon), Obama started 3 more "conflicts" in which U.S. military boots hit the ground, Clinton had 2. So, basically, everyone in our government is fascistic, which really isn't that surprising. Government is ultimately fascistic.

    6. I won't point out the problems with your post here. I will instead point out that the left does this as well. Lots of leftist revisionism, such as that the Catholic Church fought against the round Earth concept in the dark ages, even though it had already been largely wiped out by the time the old Testament was written (several mentions of the round of the Earth can be found in the bible). Just to name one fun one. Or that the crusades were just some petty attack to reclaim the holy land, instead of the retaliation for an invasion of the Byzantine empire and Spain.

    7. Please refer here to number two. The teachers union is a large part of the education problem in the United States. That is an undeniable fact. I won't continue from here.

    I figure, since you only kind of got 1 right, and I am already at seven, there is no real reason to continue, and I should instead spend my time doing something much more productive, such as finishing my senior thesis on Fascism, Communism and International relations, or studying for my comparative governments final, than point out how incredible absurd your assertion really is.

    This was your friendly neighborhood anti-tea party libertarian. Your welcome.

    1. Wow, you actually started off with a legitimate example. I'm, to say the least, shocked. Of course there's a line to draw with regards to nationalism vs patriotism -- if they believe America is exceptional because of what we have accomplished as a society, then that is patriotism. If they believe America is exceptional because of our military might, or simple because we're America, then that's nationalism. I suspect it's a mixed group, given the libertarian philosophy of many TEA Party members.

    2. The TEA Party has no position on voter ID laws, nor have many of the Representatives they sent to D.C. come out in support of voting restrictions. If you're talking about the Republican Party, then yes, that is a common position, but you can't confuse the TEA Party and the Republican Party, the TEA Party is just a recently vocalized minority portion of the prior (and also includes many Libertarians). Nor is the restriction of voting necessary to fascism -- afterall, the DNC nominated it in 2008.

    3. No, the TEA Party believes in low taxes and small government. That doesn't mean they go around shooting disabled people in the face. That means they like their free time and their money, and want to keep more of at least one of those. Also, fascist nations had expansive welfare progra...

    3. No, the TEA Party believes in low taxes and small government. That doesn't mean they go around shooting disabled people in the face. That means they like their free time and their money, and want to keep more of at least one of those. Also, fascist nations had expansive welfare programs, see Nazi Germany: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

    4. No, you're thinking of the DNC. We call it the "left-wing mainstream media" for a reason.

    5. Not all of them, but this is a fair criticism.

    6. I return this argument to you. Not with regards to legitimate scientific theories like Evolution or manmade global warming, but with regards to areas like History and Economics. After decades of the Department of Education, our public school system has been reduced to nothing more than an expensive indoctrination facility that is churning out barely literate young adults.

    7. They basically worship Adam Smith, the Founding Fathers, and academics like Milton Friedman and Thomas Sowell. The most reknowned of the Founding Fathers were men of science, Adam Smith was a highly educated intellectual, and Milton Friedman and Thomas Sowell have spent significant portions of their lives in academia. Your argument bears no legitimacy.

    8. Socialism and Communism are philosophies which base themselves in the irrational fear of freedom, just like social conservatism and Fascism. It is not from fear that I and many others dread socialism and socialist dogma, it is from cold hard logic. Moreover, it can be argued that Fascism is a form of socialism, so hating socialists would require hating fascists also.

    9. Never seen this from any TEA Partier, and I know quite a few. This has nothing to do with fascism anyway.

    10. There's protections against fraud and other forms of harm, and then there's micromanaging the economy. What you support and the TEA Party opposes are the latter and not the prior, and the latter can be a means to fascism while the prior is simply a protection of human liberty. I recommend you read about the economy of fascist nations like 1930s Italy and Germany, because clearly you have it all wrong.

    11. This is not TEA Party at all. This is social conservatism, which is not central to the TEA Party, but can be commonly seen from the Evangelical Christians that have controlled the Republican Party since Reagan.

    12. This has nothing to do with fascism (although the Nazis did it, the Nazis were actually just as socialist as they were fascist). This also isn't common at TEA Party rallies.

    13. Organized labor, while to some degree important, has become one of the greatest scams ever perpetrated. The smaller unions serve workers well, but the larger ones have become monsters, much like corporations, and now essentially function only to preserve their own existence, and actually tend to hurt workers rather than to help them. Why do you think that even in California, many government workers are abandoning the SEIU?

    14. Last I checked, it was TEA Party opponents who supported the Patriot Act and wrote the portions of the NDAA that allowed for indefinite detention of citizens without trial. In case you didn't know, Senators McCain and Graham are not TEA Partiers, and are fierce critics within the Republican Party. TEA Party favorite Senator Rand Paul is one of the biggest opponents of both the Patriot Act and the indefinite detention provisions. Get your facts straight.

    15. You already mentioned this. It was wrong the last time I read it and it's wrong now.

    16. and Obama put Wall Street in charge of the U.S. Treasury after receiving more from them than any other candidate in history. It's not just the TEA Party, this is common in politics.

    17. Never seen this at a TEA Party rally or from a TEA Partier either.

    18. No, that's the DNC...

    Sounds like you show up at KKK meetings and believe it's a TEA Party rally. You should probably get rid of that white robe you bought to fit in, and stop going there. Have a good night.

    Correct.

    The conservatives here like to call the Progressives "Socialists." That is true. The Extreme Left is indeed Socialism. Also true is that the Extreme Right is Fascism.

    They don't like to talk about that though.
