Benito Mussolini, the founder of modern Fascism said in reference to membership in the new group “commits all fascists to sabotaging the candidacies of the neutralists of all parties by any means necessary.” https://time.com/5556242/what-is-fascism/
The question as to how we define Fascism would at one time in the past been an easy task. Generally speaking, Fascism was identified as any ultra-right wing political organisation that promoted intolerance hate and ethnic cleansing just to name a few of its more nefarious attributes https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Definitions_of_fascism
So what is fascism?
Fascism is a movement that promotes the idea of a forcibly monolithic, regimented nation under the control of an autocratic ruler. The word fascism comes from fascio, the Italian word for bundle, which in this case represents bundles of people. Its origins go back to Ancient Rome, when the fasces were a bundle of wood with an axe head, carried by leaders.
So, who are the fascists today? I guess that depends on which side of the political or religious fence you reside doesn’t it? Historically fascism has been identified as right-wing meaning conservative politically and religiously or holding to rigid absolutes ideals and beliefs although from Mussolini’s reference to fascist membership and the definition of fascism that is not even remotely true.
If anything, it appears those who are part of the American Democrats or those who are Marxist or Neo Marxists otherwise known as cultural Marxists and their denizens are the new fascists. Oh, they howl and hoot at us Christians, they attack Muslims and conservative Roman Catholics because we only promote marriage between men and women. We don’t condone homosexual behaviour or abortion. We definitely oppose nonbinary descriptions of male and females as well as transgenderism; so, we’re all nasty, hateful fascist bigots who belong in the dark ages.
So if we are the bad guys then it is the left highlights toleration of which the Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy says,
The heart of tolerance is self-control. When we tolerate an activity, we resist our urge to forcefully prohibit the expression of activities that we find unpleasant. More abstractly, toleration can be understood as a political practice aiming at neutrality, objectivity, or fairness on the part of political agents. These ideas are related in that the goal of political neutrality is deliberate restraint of the power that political authorities have to negate the life activities of its citizens and subjects. Related to toleration is the virtue of tolerance, which can be defined as a tendency toward toleration. Toleration is usually grounded upon an assumption about the importance of the autonomy of individuals. This assumption and the idea of toleration are central ideas in modern liberal theory and practice. https://iep.utm.edu/tolerati/
And equality that the left harkens to according to the Cambridge Dictionary is
equality between the sexes
So once again, if this is what the left and their denizens claim to promote, then why is it that they bear more resemblance to fascism they accuse us of than the supposed ultraism and utopianism they claim to represent?
Philosophers Michael Walzer, Michael Dusche and John Rawls have linked tolerance with respect , equality and liberty arguing that we should regard tolerance as a positive civic and moral duty between individuals, irrespective of colour, creed or culture. https://theconversation.com/tolerance-is-more-than-putting-up-with-things-its-a-moral-virtue-31507#:~:text=Tolerance%20as%20a%20moral%20virtue&text=In%20other%20words%2C%20it%20is,respect%20and%20consideration%20between%20people.&text=They%20argue%20that%20tolerant%20people,independence%20and%20freedom%20of%20choice.
As you look further into the idea of tolerance it is more about deferring one’s own objections to those not of the same race colour or religious and political affiliations as us. Once more I have to ask is this the brotherliness that the left is promoting? Is the left showing value for their fellow human beings that they don’t like or agree with? In one word, NO!
To call Black Lives Matters antiracist, to call Cancel Culture moralistic or to call LBTQ the front for equality hypocritical is an understatement by me or anyone who knows the true meaning of equality or tolerance.
The violence displayed by the Black Lives Matters movement was appalling as it didn’t simply target White privilege it targeted everything without discrimination, they attacked many homes and businesses that were owned by black people.
Cancel Culture have banned cartoon characters, toys and removed monuments, books, movies and anything that they deem offensive. While at the same time lauding lewd displays of sexuality at the music awards. Anything that attacks or blocks out conservative beliefs, religion and public figures that support conservative values is okay.
The American Democratic Party spent two years trying to impeach Donald Trump while he was in office and then after he left office. The single objective of this concerted effort was to throw Trump out of office and when they failed to do so, prevent him from ever running for office again. It didn’t matter that any of the accusations were true or not true the objective was to sow doubt in the minds of the American public and also the rest of the free world.
The LBGTQ movement wants to shut down any voice that does not agree with them because it’s unfair to speak out against them. This is especially where Christianity and some other religions are targeted. So, where the bible speaks against homosexuality or men and women dressing or behaving like the opposite sex their argument is that it offends them it hurts their feelings they are being discriminated against. When this argument fails, they resort to but most Christians don’t hold those views anymore or that’s just our opinion. I challenged a homosexual the other day on a forum to show me the surveys of all the Christians who don’t object to homosexual practices or don’t see it as a sin. I was met with silence. Regarding opinion about what the bible says or how it is interpreted I don’t know any bible believing Christian that would agree with LBGTQ proponents.
All the objections, all the attacks and all the violence, all the revising of history and undermining of society, all the vitriol against conservativism, religion or family values can only lead to one conclusion; the left are the new fascists.
The left is taking the proverbial fascist axe to everything that society once held as sacrosanct. This is why what you win them with, is what you win them to, matters so much.
Fascism as an ideology is a cancer where ever it lands on the political or sociological/cultural landscape. It is not an inherently right-wing ideology because the actions of fascism can be carried out by any group regardless of their belief system. We get accused of being fascists but they are the hooligans acting like fascists. So, who are the real fascists today?
Edit Note: Fascism denies freedom of speech and liberty.
