Mussolini was praised by liberals before WW2 as a visionary. Hitler was also seen as a leftist and was praised by the western press. This is historical fact. You can dance around with your smileys and clown shoes on all you want, that doesn't impress me and you aren't refuting any facts.
Fascism is still Government control of the economy. While ownership is left in private hands, they certainly don't control the agenda. Government does. So when these centrally planned policies fail (Socialism) there will always be a reliable scapegoat to place the blame, absolving Government's bad decisions from any accountability. These Collectivist Ideologies all have the same goal. Centrally Planned control of our society and our economy. Decisions are taken out of the hands of the individual. Fascism merely is a form of Socialism with extensive central planning.
As was seen in Nazi Germany as well, trade unions were not "dissolved". One gigantic union controlled by the state was created in their place. It was called the German Labor Front.Under fascist control Mussolini allied his policy with ruling Italian capitalists, he promoted the capitalist sector to service the state (corporatism), hell life insurance was even transferred to private insurance! Trade unions were dissolved, and made illegal. Fascism promoted the idea of private property and private profits. You trying to say that fascism is somehow socialism is completely ignorant. Its core tenant when it came to the economy was corporatism!
WrongNo. "Collectivism" isnt left or right it simply means people are interdependent on each other in society...
Collectivist movements are mob movements. Not the laughable utopia rhetoric you're bleeting like a sheep.
Feel free to provide a list of 500 liberal groups that were targeted, harassed, intimidated and had their paperwork delayed for months upon months. Don't worry I know you won't. You'll just mask your inability to argue the point with snark and a smiley, fooling nobody.Someone missed the latest IRS hearings......
Ill even use a left wing source. No mention of any prominent left wing group. There were more than 500 Tea Party/Religious groups targeted by the IRS. I understand you want to desperately believe any smoke screen this fascist government spoonfeeds you, but sorry, the facts are not on your side. Don't worry, I already know you don't have the character or integrity to admit you support fascism, even after you laughably try to excuse it by making a morally relevant "argument that said "Don't worry, the IRS targeting and harassing Tea Party groups is acceptable because a liberal group or two was targeted too". Maybe that extremist rationality will work at DailyKos, but it won't work here.
