I will start with a quote,

"When Fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in a flag and waving a cross."
Sinclair Lewis

The 14 Defining
Characteristics Of Fascism

1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism
Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays.

Republicans consider themselves EXTREMELY patriotic, hell if you disagree with them you will hear, "You are un-patriotic."

2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights
Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of "need." The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.

Republicans see torture as an ends to a mean, they have enacted laws that allow for violations of the fourth amendment and illegal wire tapping. That shutting things down like the Occupy wall street rally even though it violates the constitution as a justified need. That detaining prisoners of war indefinitely is a good thing and have even changed the word of terrorist to include "home grown" terrorist.

3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause
The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial , ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.

I am pretty sure you have heard the ruse Republicans have raised against people, you commie, you socialist, you homo, you Atheist. Also,
Sadam Hussein is a horrible dictator, We must invade an entire country to capture one man (afganistan) even though none of the terrorist came from either of these countries, but were funded by the likes of Saudi Arabia, and Pakistan.

4. Supremacy of the Military
Even when there are widespread domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized.

Enough said in this explanation.

5. Rampant Sexism
The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more rigid. Divorce, abortion and homosexuality are suppressed and the state is represented as the ultimate guardian of the family institution.

Once again, holy shit enough said!

6. Controlled Mass Media
Sometimes to media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government regulation, or sympathetic media spokespeople and executives. Censorship, especially in war time, is very common.

You may say that the media is controlled by liberal, however the MSM is controlled by extremely large corporations which fund.......Republicans and cause widespread mis-information.

7. Obsession with National Security
Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.

As I said the corporate controlled media spread horrendous amounts of mis-information, such as they did with death panels, the war (weapons of mass destruction anyone?)

8. Religion and Government are Intertwined
Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed
to the government's policies or actions.

Damn, once again enough said.

9. Corporate Power is Protected
The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite.

I don't even have to say anything......

10. Labor Power is Suppressed
Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely, or are severely suppressed.

Well we all know about those socialist and communist teachers, firefighters and police officers in Wisconsin. Especially the fact the right HATES unions.

11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts
Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression in the arts and letters is openly attacked.

Creationism in schools, The scientific studies of homosexuality in nature have been called propaganda by the right. College teachers are being called communist and it's now referred to as "liberal education" that is ruining America.

12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment
Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism. There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.

Police brutality and illegal actions by cops are often defended by the right as justified. "They are protecting us." TSA, Homeland security, the patriot act, Law enforcement has unprecedented power, they are now trained as paramilitary troops as opposed to peace keepers, driving around with militar boots and ready to knock in your house with APC's and shoot you with military grade weapons on a moments notice. Wrong house? Oops, I am sure they will get a slap on the wrist. They are protecting you.

13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption
Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.

I think this runs on both sides, however the right is more profound in their openness about their connections with powerful elite orginizations. Mitt Romney ring a bell?


14. Fraudulent Elections
Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections.

" use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries" This has happened in the primaries this year to be exact.

However Republicans are patriotic, God fearing, anti-gay pro moral, capitalist loving ......... Fascist.

    They have blurred the lines between government and business. They have allowed government to be run by ALEC which is a bunch of powerful corporations that write legislation beneficial to themselves and then hand it over to Republicans along with a boat load of cash to pass their bills. The NRA and the Koch brothers are two other examples of money buying politicians.

    When it came to BP Oil Spill, the Reichtie's expect, EXPECTED the Taxpayers to pick up the bill for the clean up.. That is Fascism..

    Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas) apologizing to BP.. Apparently his Constituents love spending money on cleaning up a Corporations mess..

    "Fascism is the melding of corporations and government . . ."
    as in ObamaCare.
    Where rule number one is you must buy this private industry's product; health insurance.
    And the government will tell you what type of coverage you must have and what that industry is allowed and not allowed to sell to you.
    How could the melding of government and private industry be any more fascist than that?

    Not one Republican voted for ObamaCare.

    "Government under the GOp wants to hand the role of the Government over to the corporations"

    No, not any more than any Democrat.
    But you can prove me wrong by linking to a bill that shows that.
    Selling highways? Huh?
    You do realize that highways are not built by government workers, don't you? They are contracted to bidders.
    And that the bill you are talking about is directed towards moving the care and construction of highways to the states.
    You know that tenth amendment thing.
    That thing that gets federal government out of the Soviet-like approach to every problem in this nation.

    Privatizing Social Security was offered as a choice for maximizing returns on Social Security payroll deductions . . . a required investment towards retirement.
    If I'm forced to set money aside for investment, shouldn't I have some say as to how it's invested?

    How is it in the best interest of a corporation to poison its customers?

    PT Barnum famously said that he didn't "skin" his customers... he merely "sheared them, that way, they can grow it back"

    Good business managers provide their customers with MORE than they expect. That way they become REPEAT customers.

    The only way that policy doesn't work is when the corporation hides behind the power of government force via gov't mandates monopoly protection for the alledged private enterprise.

    Another example is the current 76,000 page tax code that provides deep pocket corporations and the wealthy with an avenue to lobby for tax breaks for their "special interests" or allow "Friends of (fill in the blank) POTUS" to allow their giant corporations to not pay any tax (can you say Jeffrey R. Immelt and GE?)

    Adopting a simple flat rate sales tax instead of our current complex system would eliminate ALL of the special interest loopholes and deductions that we "claim" to want to rid ourselves of. But the "Ruling Class" loves those campaign contributions... so the dance continues.

    For the Democrats of today to somehow accuse the Republicans of being Fascist is laughable and shows a complete lack of understanding of history and what the term Fascism means. Fascism is a big government central planning philosophy. The opposite of what today’s republicans are pushing for, and exactly what Obama is pushing for. While socialists push for actual state ownership, Obama and the democrats of today push far more of a fascist model where the government controls everything yet keeps ownership private and strongly supporting the politically favored businesses and industries while destroying any company that does not abide by their every wish and every industry that competes with their favored industries. The early progressives that the democrats so proudly name themselves after today were staunch supporters of the Fascists. If you look at Obama’s policies and compare them to Hitler’s or Mussolini’s, they are almost identical. Even down to the siding with the Muslim extremists and spitting in the face of the Jews. Look at all the anti-Semitism in the Occupy Wall Street Movement. Fascist economic policies can certainly perpetuate the redistribution of wealth, they also tend to create powerful privileged elites that leverage tax dollars and political favors so as to man...

Look at all the anti-Semitism in the Occupy Wall Street Movement. Fascist economic policies can certainly perpetuate the redistribution of wealth, they also tend to create powerful privileged elites that leverage tax dollars and political favors so as to manipulate the market in their favor. This is what the democrat party of today is all about. Nearly 200 of his biggest donors have landed plum government jobs and advisory posts, won federal contracts worth millions of dollars for their business interests or attended numerous elite White House meetings and social events, an investigation by iWatch News has found. These “bundlers” raised at least $50,000 — and sometimes more than $500,000 — in campaign donations for Obama’s campaign. The cluster of appointments among top bundlers suggests that the size of the donation may have been a factor at least in getting a foot in the door. Less than one in five at the $50,000 level got an administration position. Half of $200,000 bundlers were picked for some post; 80 percent of the $500,000 bundlers were appointed. Obama has showered his supporters with hundreds of billions in loans, contracts, and hand outs. Fascism is not solely about taking over entire industries, even though they did, it is about using brute government force to force companies to act on the sole benefit of the state. You always hear Democrats talk about how businesses should not act in the interest of profit, but purely for the workers, country and the democrats goals. The notion that businesses operate and make decisions only with the consent of the government is known as fascism. There are already many fascist elements in our so-called capitalist society, and Republicans advocate these policies almost as much as Democrats do. While it sounds good, the system leads to a destruction of innovation and efficiencies and ends up destroying the economy long term. Fascist policies are also expensive. The more a business is forced to comply with decisions against its own financial interest, the more it will have to cut jobs. We all know the employment numbers continue to be wretched. The real cause: Too much fascism. Fascism hurts businesses whether carried out by Republicans or Democrats. What President Obama has been pushing for, and moving toward, is more insidious: government control of the economy, while leaving ownership in private hands. That way, politicians get to call the shots but, when their bright ideas lead to disaster, they can always blame those who own businesses in the private sector. Sound familiar? This is precisely what happened during the recent recession. For example, government-mandated loans aimed at boosting homeownership were clearly among the root causes of the economic downturn - but when the sub-prime bubble burst blame was placed exclusively on “corporate greed.” Of course at the same time politicians were absolving themselves of any responsibility, they were forcing taxpayers to subsidize massive bailouts of these “greedy” financial institutions. This is the basis of fascism’s “third way” between laissez-faire capitalism and Marxism. It’s also precisely the economic system we see at work in America today, a centralized bureaucratic oligarchy in which farm subsidies, investments in “green jobs,” Wall Street bailouts, Export-Import Bank subsidies and numerous other taxpayer-funded incentives manipulate the market to serve specific political purposes. Is any property really “private” if the government can take it based on little more than a whim? And is any sector of the economy really “private” as long as government can swoop in and set its prices and production quotas? And finally, is any market truly “free” if government can compel citizens to make specific purchases? Obama is almost by definition a nouveau fascism. Here are some examples; 1. Fascists are masters of manipulating the media in order to justify their stifling policies just as Joseph Goebbles did as propaganda minister for Hitler’s Nazi regime. As he said, if you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people eventually will come to believe it. It is clear that the entire media, universities, and even the grade school teachers unions are pushing the Democrat fascist propaganda. Look at how even thr president directly atttackes and tries to discredit Fox News, the only news source that actually presents both sides to every story. They have Democrats on just about every program stating their views and having open debate, yet the democrats paint them as only showing one side. Where is that on MSNBC, CNN, etc? Lets face it, most of the media simply prints the democrats daily talking points. Hitler attacked any group and attacked and nationalized any media that preached against his policies. 2. Let’s not forget Obama's "Truth Squad" in Missouri, where elected Democrats were cruising the internet looking for examples of those that disagreed with him during the health care debate and threatening to use legal means to suppress opponent's "Lies." 3. Under fascism, the state, through official agencies, controlled all aspects of manufacturing, commerce, finance, and agriculture. Licensing was ubiquitous; no economic activity could be undertaken without government permission. Levels of consumption were dictated by the state, and "excess" incomes had to be surrendered as taxes or "loans". 4. To maintain high employment and minimize popular discontent, fascist governments also undertook massive public-works programs financed by steep taxes, borrowing and fiat money creation. Sound Familiar? 5. Mussolini heaped praise upon FDR's New Deal as "boldly...interventionist in the field of economics." Roosevelt was not reticent in his compliments to Mussolini for the latter's "honest purpose in restoring Italy" and acknowledged that he kept "in fairly close touch with the admirable Italian gentlemen." 6. ObamaCare is not about health care, per se; rather, it is intended to dictate to business and the individual what insurance they must buy, what health care they are allowed to access, and ultimately what behavior is acceptable -- all at the whim of a centralized bureaucracy. 7. The Dodd-Frank Bill firmly establishes the concept of "too big to fail" for certain financial institutions, thereby subjecting them to the absolute control of the state while allowing, and in many cases forcing, others to cease doing business, as well as instituting lending and operating policies determined by government regulators. 8. GM and Chrysler: The Obama regime has thrown out the rule of law when it comes to the rights of private investors by their actions against the bondholders of Chrysler and General Motors, as well as forcefully taking over and operating both companies and others as quasi-private entities. They shut down dealerships that have historically supported Republican candidates and very few that openly supported democrats were shut down. 9. They have chosen which businesses will succeed or fail by the taxpayer financing of companies such a Solyndra among a score of others, others of which have failed. The Obama appointees to the National Labor Relations Board are now dictating to companies where they can locate and are attempting to force their workers into unions without secret ballots. 10. The mantra of public-works spending is alive and well and constantly being used to justify massive government spending. 11. A key characteristic of the reality of fascist thinking is rampant cronyism and corruption. Certain capitalists, wishing to ingratiate themselves with the state, are willing to fund the election of those in power in exchange for favorable government contracts and avoidance of regulatory wrath. Recently, much of Wall Street, Hollywood, the unions, major companies such as General Electric, and the super-wealthy such as Warren Buffett and Soros are willing to sleep with those in power and be used as props in any propaganda campaign initiated by the Obama regime. 12. The Obama administration has, through the Justice Department and other agencies, behaved exactly as many quasi-fascist regimes in the past -- almost all of whom have been governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect themselves and their friends from accountability. 13. When a health insurance company that marketed Medicare policies tried to warn its olicyholders that Obamacare would hurt seniors’insurance programs, the Department of Health and Human Services issued on a gag order on such communications with policyholders. It also said that the warning was misleading, which it was not. When segments of the health insurance industry turned against Obamacare, Mr. Obama threatened to have the antitrust exemption of the industry revoked. When the timing of the threat is taken into account, it is clear that this was revenge and payback for Obamacare criticism. Working in tandem with Mr. Obama, Congressional leaders also issued threats to insurance companies that dared to dissent. 14. Then there was the highly publicized attempt of the Obama Administration to use the National Endowment for the Arts to influence artists and others who received government grants to create “works of art” supporting the Obama program. This is not an isolated example of the illegal and improper use by Mr. Obama of the government to propagandize and campaign. 15. You will probably also recall the White House’s collection of e-mail names, addresses and comments of those making “fishy” comments about Obamacare. He encouraged Americans to send the White House emails or web posts of those that were against Obama Care. Just as Hitler had school children report their parents to the government. 16. Mr. Obama and Democratic Congressional leaders have expressed support for the Employee Free Choice Act, which would abolish the secret ballot in union elections. This shows the willingness of Mr. Obama and the Democratic Party leadership to do anything to satisfy the demands of one of their voting constituencies. In this case, it’s the labor bosses, who want to revive their fortunes by making it easy to organize new unions – without the need to pass the test of a secret ballot obtaining the right to organize a union. 17. In March of 1938 The Nazi Weapons Law was issued. These were it’s main points:  Classified guns for “sporting purposes”.  All citizens who wished to purchase firearms had to register with the Nazi officials and have a background check. This applied only to handguns, not to long guns or ammunition.  Presumed German citizens were hostile and thereby exempted Nazis from the gun control law.  Gave Nazis unrestricted power to decide what kinds of firearms could, or could not be owned by private persons.  The types of ammunition that were legal were subject to control by bureaucrats.  Juveniles under 18 years could not buy firearms and ammunition. Once this had been accomplished, Hitler set his sights on disarming the Jews. In November of the same year, the Minister of the Interior, Wilhelm Frick, passed Regulations Against Jews’ Possession of Weapons Shall I Continue?
