“The Fascists of the future will call themselves anti-Fascists.” [1] There?s this odd business, which I call in the book “schizo-fascism,” where people who are themselves unambiguously fascists refer to others as fascists. [2]

Italy?s far-right party Forza Nuova (FN) and Poland?s National Radical Camp (ONR) have joined forces for what they call “the first European security operation” on the beaches of the Italian Romagna Riviera. [3] The conservative media frequently calls for the “unmasking” anti-fascists. [4] In the epilogue I try to build up a little idea of how those virtues would work together to build up what I would call the politics of responsibility. [2]

Maybe they call themselves “anti-fascist” because they think the Nazis were too well-behaved. [5] It calls for fines and a prison sentence of up to 15 years for anyone who “injures, oppresses, threatens, or intimidates any person” while wearing a mask or disguise — a bill that telegraphs the government?s future attempts to prosecute the masked protesters they failed to criminalize on Inauguration Day. [6] Are you kidding me?! You’re going to take tens of millions of American voters, essentially call them racist, sexist idiots, and flat-out dismiss them? All she did was verify to the Trump supporter all the things that he already believed: that he was being disrespected, left behind, and forgotten about by the democratic party. [7] We call on comrades around the world to join in solidarity actions with the prison strike in the United States. [8] What is hilarious is that these illiterate goons call themselves “Antifa,” short for the words “anti” and “fascist.” [5]

“The fascists of the future will call themselves anti-fascist” Winston Churchill. [9] A few weeks after that, it described Bandera as no more than “controversial” and quoted a Kiev businessman as saying: “The Russians want to call him a fascist, but I feel he was a hero for our country. [10] Under these circumstances, demands for fascist regimes by Vijayakala and the Anunayaka should not be construed as calls for another separatist war or for policies similar to those of the Nazis. [11] By the time this government was forced to resign and call elections for February I 936 there were 30,000 political prisoners. [12] It?s perfectly true that the only two political leaders to call for triggering Article 50 on the night of the Brexit victory were UKIP?s Nigel Farage and Labour?s Jeremy Corbyn. [13]

People in the West believed the propaganda Yanukovich massacred his own people, then Paet reveals it was “the opposition” responsible for the killings of both Ukraine police and civilians certainly THE story at that point in the unfolding development of the Ukraine turmoil, yet astonishingly not a single Western corporate media reported on the phone call. [10] The telephonists had been able to keep tabs on what was going on by listening in on the calls of government ministers. [12] Ms. Ashton by her bizarre, completely unaffected response to what was absolutely shocking information at the time leads one to think she knew the truth about Maidan and the coup well before she took the call from Paet. [10]

It’s always the fascists who call for a powerful state to force people “into line”. [14]

While continuing to rely on Germany for support, Mussolini and the remaining loyal Fascists founded the Italian Social Republic with Mussolini as head of state. [15] By 1943, after Italy faced multiple military failures, complete reliance and subordination of Italy to Germany and Allied invasion of Italy and corresponding international humiliation, Mussolini was removed as head of government and arrested by the order of King Victor Emmanuel III who proceeded to dismantle the Fascist state and declared Italy’s switching of allegiance to the Allied side. [16] Fascism emphasizes direct action, including supporting the legitimacy of political violence, as a core part of its politics. 15 214 Fascism views violent action as a necessity in politics that fascism identifies as being an “endless struggle”. 215 This emphasis on the use of political violence means that most fascist parties have also created their own private militias (e.g. the Nazi Party’s Brown shirts and Fascist Italy’s Blackshirts ). [15] Fascism has had complicated relations regarding capitalism, which changed over time and differed between Fascist states. [16] The Doctrine of Fascism states: “The Fascist conception of the State is all-embracing; outside of it no human or spiritual values can exist, much less have value. [15] According to historian Philip Morgan, “the onset of the Great Depression. was the greatest stimulus yet to the diffusion and expansion of fascism outside Italy”. 155 Fascist propaganda blamed the problems of the long depression of the 1930s on minorities and scapegoats : ” Judeo – Masonic – bolshevik ” conspiracies, left-wing internationalism and the presence of immigrants. [15]

In 1919, Alceste De Ambris and Futurist movement leader Filippo Tommaso Marinetti created The Manifesto of the Italian Fasci of Combat (the Fascist Manifesto ). 115 The Manifesto was presented on 6 June 1919 in the Fascist newspaper Il Popolo d’Italia. [15] It was the failure of this counterhegemonic movement that would lead to the fascist seizure of power. [15] Fascists supported limited private property rights and the profit motive of capitalism, but sought to eliminate the autonomy of large-scale capitalism by consolidating power with the state. [16] Mussolini unleashed, 1939-1941: Politics and Strategy in Fascist Italy’s Last War. [15] With the antagonism between anti-interventionist Marxists and pro-interventionist Fascists complete by the end of the war, the two sides became irreconcilable. [15]

Hungarian fascist Gyula Gb rose to power as Prime Minister of Hungary in 1932 and attempted to entrench his Party of National Unity throughout the country. [15] Robert O. Paxton finds that the transformations undertaken by fascists in power were “profound enough to be called ‘revolutionary.'” [15] At this time, the Fascists did not have an integrated set of policies and the movement was very small. [16] Since the end of World War II in 1945, few parties have openly described themselves as fascist and the term is instead now usually used pejoratively by political opponents. [15] Paxton says: “In fascism’s heyday, in the 1930s, many regimes that were not functionally fascist borrowed elements of fascist decor in order to lend themselves an aura of force, vitality, and mass mobilization”. [15] From the same era, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel’s view on the absolute authority of the state also strongly influenced Fascist thinking. [16] Contrary to the popular use of the term, communist states have sometimes been referred to as “fascist”, typically as an insult. [15] Fascists promoted social welfare to ameliorate economic conditions affecting their nation or race as a whole, but they did not support social welfare for egalitarian reasons towards those not considered racially embodied with pure German blood. [15] They “often set fascists into conflict with conservatives rooted in families, churches, social rank, and property.” [15] Beginning in 1922, Fascist paramilitaries escalated their strategy from one of attacking socialist offices and homes of socialist leadership figures to one of violent occupation of cities. [15] Major Italian groups politically on the right, especially rich landowners and big business, feared an uprising by groups on the left such as sharecroppers and labour unions. 56 They welcomed Fascism and supported its violent suppression of opponents on the left. 57 The accommodation of the political right into the Italian Fascist movement in the early 1920s created internal factions within the movement. [15] The term neo-fascism refers to fascist movements after World War II. In Italy, the Italian Social Movement led by Giorgio Almirante was a major neo-fascist movement that transformed itself into a self-described “post-fascist” movement called the National Alliance (AN), which has been an ally of Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia for a decade. [15] According to Mussolini’s own account, the Fascist Revolutionary Party ( Partito Fascista Rivoluzionario or PFR) was founded in Italy in 1915. 20 In 1919, Mussolini founded the Fasci Italiani di Combattimento in Milan, which became the Partito Nazionale Fascista ( National Fascist Party ) two years later. [15] Franco’s rise to power had been directly assisted by the militaries of Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany during the Spanish Civil War and Franco had sent volunteers to fight on the side of Nazi Germany against the Soviet Union during World War II. The first years were characterized by a repression against the anti-fascist ideologies, a deep censorship and the suppression of democratic institutions (elected Parliament, Constitution of 1931, Regional Statutes of Autonomy). [15] Varieties of Fascism: Doctrines of Revolution in the Twentieth Century, New York: Van Nostrand Reinhold Company, (Contains chapters on fascist movements in different countries.) [15] Fascism and political theory: critical perspectives on fascist ideology. [16]

Fascist states pursued policies of social indoctrination through propaganda in education and the media and regulation of the production of educational and media materials. 190 191 Education was designed to glorify the fascist movement and inform students of its historical and political importance to the nation. [15] Both National Socialist Germany and Fascist Italy were welfare states that spent heavily on public works. [16] Fascist ideology: territory and expansionism in Italy and Germany, 1922-1945. [15] The birth of fascist ideology: from cultural rebellion to political revolution. [15] Note that some authors refer to Mussolini’s first political party as “The Revolutionary Fascist Party”. [15] In return, Sorel lauded Mussolini in 1921 by calling the leader of Italy’s Fascist party “a man no less extraordinary than Lenin. [16] The Fascists presented themselves as anti-Marxists and as opposed to the Marxists. 114 Mussolini consolidated control over the Fascist movement, known as Sansepolcrismo, in 1919 with the founding of the Fasci italiani di combattimento. [15]

In the aftermath of World War II, the victory of the Allies over the Axis powers led to the collapse of multiple fascist regimes in Europe. [16] In Germany, it contributed to the rise of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party, which resulted in the demise of the Weimar Republic and the establishment of the fascist regime, Nazi Germany, under the leadership of Adolf Hitler. [15]

Believe, obey, fight: political socialization of youth in fascist Italy, 1922-1943. [15] The Fascist Party itself had become almost completely bureaucratized and subservient to, not dominant over, the state itself. [15]

“The people who have shown the best understanding of Fascism are either those who have suffered under it or those who have a Fascist streak in themselves [1] I think old fascist ideas are being used to create a racialized oligarchy, not fascism as such, but certainly something kindred or at least genealogically connected. [2] By pointing the finger and putting blame on protesters, groups such as BreitBart help the fascist cause and help place the designation of enemy on those fighting fascism and racism. [17] So one of the reasons why you refer to fascist ideologues is that fascism is about banishing the problem of succession. [2] In the face of this multi-racial and working-class mobilization against fascism that was organized from the ground up, the media has one place left to run: to the fascists themselves. [17]

From intellectuals that are pushing more into the mainstream like those that attend the American Renaissance and National Policy Institute conferences, to more sub-cultural groups such as the Wolves of Vinland, to publishers such as Counter-Currents in San Francisco, aspiring activist organizations like Identity Evropa, to finally the Traditionalist Workers Party which is trying to build a fascist “working-class? fighting force for the streets. [17] Fascist and white nationalist groups in the U.S. while taking key influence from the German Nazis and others, have historically operated as a reserve army for the American government in an effort to uphold white supremacy. [17] This “special treatment” that Neo-Nazis and fascist protesters received at the hands of the police is nothing new, and just like in countries like Greece, law enforcement has long had it?s far share of closeted and open police officers who are also members of the KKK and Nazi groups. [17] For hours after the Milo Yiannopoulos event on December 4 last year, police protected a group of fascists yelling racial abuse at the mainly black and Muslim residents at the estate. [18] As the fascists pulled out knives and people fought back with bats and flag poles, police largely stayed out of the frey or used their bikes and horses to push back the anti-racist militants and protect the white supremacists. [17] In Anaheim, fights broke out between KKK members and protesters, resulting in several people being stabbed as the fascists were quickly driven from the streets. [17] Ultranationalism, despite its primary stress on the need for national or racial palingenesis, can thus acquire an important international or transnational dimension beyond narrow cultural, linguistic and ethnic divides, a fact being increasingly recognized by fascist studies. [18] From what has been said earlier about the way the fascist ‘ultra-nation’ is not necessarily equated with the nation-state, it is also clear that fascist ultranationalism does not preclude tactical alliances being forged with other ultranationalisms in a common supranational cause to fight the same international forces of ideological hostility or decadence held to be destroying the organic nation. [18] If the Fascist regime?s first military setbacks came in lands of colonial conquest, by summer 1943 British and American forces threatened Italy herself. [19] As Fascist Blackshirts began their fight to take over the streets around Italy, and Communist and Socialist leaders preached passivity, San Lorenzo?s Communists were central to antifascist resistance. [19]

The entire meaning of the war in Soviet education was as an anti-fascist struggle, where the Russians are on the side of the good and the fascists are the enemy. [2] The police blamed the anti-fascists in the media for starting the violence much to the delight of far-Right as the “journalists” rushed to hand the fascists the microphone and some even questioned if they were really “Nazis.” [17] In the eyes of the mainstream media, the police top brass, and in the narrative created by the Nazis themselves that outlets with glee broadcast onto millions of screens, the real trouble makers on June 26 th were not the Neo-Nazis who attempted to rally support for a fascist all-white America, but instead those that stood up to physically stop them. [17] Because, as a matter of fact, the current Russian government, which is a very important government, cites figures who are unambiguously fascist and Nazi. [2] Dino Grandi, a leading Italian Fascist, observed that the future would be dominated by “a class struggle between nations” which pitted the backward “proletarian nations” against the advanced “capitalist nations.” [20] The fascist ultra-nation can be envisaged as a supra-individual product of the fascist imagination which can partake of aspects of both the historical ‘motherland’ and ‘fatherland’, but also of mythicized historical and racial pasts and future destinies. [18]

The fascist ideas, actually, did have a fair amount of purchase here the first time around. [2] TS: Yes, fascist ideas have come to Russia at a historical moment, three generations after the Second World War, when it?s impossible for Russians to think of themselves as fascist. [2] JC: Well, it?s an extraordinary story you are telling–that the ideas of the original fascists have made their way to the U.S. via Russia–and not only that, but that they have been readily accepted by much the population. [2] Fascist ideas still have purchase here because we have our own very strong traditions of racism. [2] Just six days later, at a meeting of the Fascist Grand Council, the Duce?s closest allies voted to hand control of the war to the king. [19] This assault met with much weaker resistance, after the king had already appointed Mussolini prime minister; it ended with the murder of thirteen sanlorenzini, as a battalion of five hundred fascists led by Italo Balbo wreaked revenge on the district. [19] Their rally was shut down and the fascists never marched, instead, hundreds of people held the West steps and conducted a rally of their own. [17] It is in this context that hundreds of people converged in Sacramento for the purpose of not giving the fascists an inch. [17] While currently the TWP is promoting the fact that they sent more anti-fascists to the hospital than fascists, this overlooks all their previously stated goals of the Sacramento demonstration. [17] Anti-fascists and fascists have recently engaged in doxxing campaigns against each other. [4] In the ensuing clash between the Neo-Nazis and the anti-fascists, bats exploded on shields, pepper spray went wild and the fascists stabbed into the crowd while screaming, “nigger!,” as they attacked. [17] In Portland, June 30 witnessed bloody clashes between fascists (including many Proud Boys gathered under the umbrella of ‘Patriot Prayer’) and anti-fascists. [18] In another vein, the police again faced criticism for being “soft” on the fascists. [17] To be clear, Sacramento represented both an organizational, political, and military defeat the fascists. [17] As will become apparent the ultra-nation of the fascist political imagination is not necessarily racist in biological, pseudo-scientific, or eugenic terms. [18] In Melbourne on Sunday, a small group of racists and fascists, assembled under the banner of the ‘True Blue Crew’ (TBC), undertook a rally and march, ostensibly in order to celebrate ‘Aussie Pride’. [18] The event was a success because the goals set out for the mobilization; to shut down the fascist event and give them no platform to organize from, was totally successful. [17] The confusion derives from a connotation of the term “fascist” which, according to Gregor, “in our time serves as little more than an epithet. [20] In moving forward, we need to not only mobilize hard for these conflicts, but also spend time organizing among the communities that fascists and racists hope to pull from. [17] Fifteen years ago they were still doing the fascist salute but now they are trying to appear more respectable, dont use mimetic outfits anymore, dont do the fascist salute, criticise Israel instead of jews and they are anti-muslim,” he said. [3] Last week fascists staged a provocation, attacking the Communia social center and drawing a swastika over the mural that has long welcomed visitors to San Lorenzo, ” viva i partigiani.” [19] As the Neo-Nazi skinheads marched along the sidewalk they screamed, “Zeek-hail!” and gave the fascist right arm salute. [17] ” # Antifa is fascist” said many an ignorant liberal fascist apologist after hearing about # NoNazisInSac. [17] We encourage anyone outraged by the idea of fascists marching through the streets of Narrm to join the counter demonstration. [18]

Giusi Delvecchio, president of the National Association of Italian Partisans (ANPI) – a group founded in the 1940s by participants of the resistance against the Italian Fascist regime – told Euronews that concerns centred largely around the involvement of a foreign extremist group. [3] As an emotive force, and as a source of identity and purpose, the strength of fascist ideology often lies in the nebulousness and utopian quality of its vision, not in its practicality or realizability. [18]

These formations can be called on again not just for future anti-fascist actions but to ultimately build a broad based autonomous anti-capitalist movement that is rooted in everyday working-class communities. [17] In the future, as in the upcoming confrontations with the TWP at the RNC or elsewhere, anti-fascists will have to keep in mind that such a promotion is sure to bring in hardcore and violent Neo-Nazis into TWP looking for more of the same. [17] Many people came out to the Sacramento mobilization because of reading about it on IGD. In the future, the question for us is how can we both increase our capacity to do this with more and more people, but also how can we reach out beyond established anarchist and activist scenes. [17] I think the period between 2008 and 2016 in the U.S., for different kinds of people in different kinds of ways, was very often either a shock, or a realization that the future is not coming the way that it was supposed to come. [2]

The future goes away, and with it the assumption that government might make policy to change the future. [2] Italian Fascists often derided Germany?s National Socialist movement: famously, ultra-fascist extremists such as Roberto Farinacci and Giovanni Preziosi wrote that Nazism, with its parochial and exclusivist racism, was offensive to the conscience of mankind and would push Europe into Communism, and even Mussolini itself mocked Hitler?s racial ideas, opining that Germans did not constitute a race at all, but rather the blend of six-different peoples. [21] If one was to describe a Fascist today, it is more likely that he would speak Hindi or Portuguese rather than Italian or German, salute the Sigma of Brazilian Integralism or the Red Ashoka Chakra of the Bharatavarsha Movement and speak of Foucault and the French October of 1958 rather than Mussolini, D?Annunzio or the March on Rome. [21] It is significant that many of the leaders of these movements, from Mussolini down (and including Vichy French prime minister Pierre Laval and Norwegian puppet ruler Vidkun Quisling ) began as socialists and ended as fascists or Nazis. [22] The centerpiece of the New Deal was the National Industrial Recovery Act (NIRA) of 1933, which was “similar to experiments being carried out by the fascist dictator Benito Mussolini in Italy and by the Nazis in Adolf Hitler’s Germany,” according to John A. Garraty, of the Society of American Historians. [22]

By the late 1920s, Mussolini?s attitude towards Fascism Internationalism had changed from viewing Italian Fascism as “merchandise not fit for export” to appreciating the merits of fostering a “Fascist International”, in the vein of organizations such as the Third Socialist International (the Comintern). [21] Even if every year the fascist parties, movements and organizations of the world still send representatives every year to the beautiful city of Montreux in the Alps, the Fascism of today is not in any means the Fascism of sixty years ago. [21] In an attempt to suppress what they believe to be fascism and nazism, the anti-fascist groups of America have frequently adopted fascist tactics in order to achieve their end goal. [7] While not considered fascist by most scholars, some conservative authoritarian regimes cooperated with fascist groups and included some corporatist elements of fascism. [22] Fascism ignores or rejects Christianity, though some fascist leaders such as Hitler have exploited organized religion for political gain. [22] The Montreux Conference would draw many more far-right and fascist intellectuals and ideologues from throughout Europe to further collaborate on the definition of the Fascism ideology and its ideals. [21] Between January and June of 1929, the CAUR worked on three separate goals: to define universal fascism, an aim later picked up at the Conference of Montreux in 1929 and 1930; to identify the criteria that an organization must fulfill in order to qualify as “fascist” and finally, to laid the groundwork for the Conference, to be held on December of 1929. [21] Fascism emphasises action rather than theory, and fascist theoretical writings are always weak. [21]

The British Union of Fascists was never an important force in British politics, although it was significant enough for the government to consider its leader, Sir Oswald Mosley, dangerous enough to intern during the war. [22] 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. [22] There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations. [22] Both the Fascist Manifesto as well as both the 1920 and 1925 versions of the Nazi Platform specifically indicated that they are to disband the military and replacing it with a national militia under the military problems, with the latter sources also condemning the concept of making “war profits”, even calling for a revision of military contracts and confiscating profits from them, which conflicts with point four about the supremacy of the military. [22] Two groups have forced an annual Portland parade to shut down by threatening disruption and violence for allowing “fascists” and “nazis” to participate in the event. [7]

Italian Premier Benito Mussolini was convinced that the New Deal was copying Fascist economic policies. [22]

The issue of irredentism is more complicated, and also linked to that of National Identity, one of the greater hurdles that the Fascist International had to sort during its early years. [21]

Socialist (Kent Worcester, “? C.L.R. James: A Political Biography ?? ISBN 079142751X, p. 175) George Rawich wrote that Perkins told him Johnson gave each member of the Cabinet a book by Fascist theoretician Giovanni Gentile, “and we all read it with great care.” [22]

Along with them, the fascist parties and delegates from Portugal, Hungary, Lithuania, Brazil, Japan, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Albania, Romania, Poland, Peru, the United States, Canada, Mexico, Cuba, Austria, Switzerland, Ireland, Czechoslovakia, Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Finland and Greece, amongst others with observer status, sided with Italy. [21] Look at what the allies did to places they “liberated”, like in Italy where they kept the fascists in power for the most part, and accelerated the rounding up and often killing of communists and unionized workers. [23] 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. [22] You are right. we should compare Anifa and the entire left movement as fascists and rising Nazis. [24] Nearly two dozen European movements were identified as “fascist” by the CAUR and invited to the Conference held in the Swiss city of Montreux on December 11 of 1929. [21] Fascists believe that all actions should be done for the good of the state; they reject classical liberalism, which upholds the rights of the individual. [22] “Fascist” is today frequently used as a term of abuse both on the left and on the right against one’s political opponents. [22] The event page for their protest, titled “Defend Portland from Fascists at the Avenue of Roses parade” also reads like an Orwellian thought police brigade. [7] Among the declarations made at Montreux the following day, Eugenio Coselschi, in his capacity as Chairman of the Fascist International, declared Hitler and Nazi Racism as opposed “yesterday to Christian Civilization, today to Latin Civilization and tomorrow to the civilization of the entire world.” [21] The influence of men like Ettore Ovanzza, one of Mussolini?s financial patrons and founder of the newspaper La Nostra Bandiera also supports this position. (7) This stands in contrast to the policies and stances of many other members of the Fascist International, especially the Romanian National-Christian Union and Hungary?s Arrow Cross, which were known to be virulently anti-Semitic and yet remained part of Rome?s aegis when the Italian-German split came. [21] The Fascists called this economic system corporativismo (corporativism). [22] Such arguments of course may fall flat when dealing with Latin American Falangism or Integralism, but the difficult and rather mercurial relations between the Fascist State and the Catholic Church are not the issue that concerns us the most. [21] Of the fifteen jurists asked by Mussolini to draft the fascist constitution, 3 were Jewish (Professors Arias, Barone and Levi). [21] While anti-masking laws are not uncommon and have often been used in the past to arrest leftist and anarchist protesters, the weight of sentencing proposed in the new bill raises the stakes considerably and exemplifies efforts under the Trump administration to protect the speech of fascists and condemn that of anti-fascists. [6] The Fascist revolution will make another decisive step to shorten social distances [22] The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. [22] Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. [22] The last regime that had some fascist elements, that of Francisco Franco in Spain, came to an end in 1975. [22] Regarding labor unions, both the 1919 Fascist Manifesto and both versions of the Nazi Platform make clear that they if anything considered labor unions their allies, conflicting with point 11. [22] Point 1 implies that showing any form of patriotism is considered fascist, which ignores that Joseph Goebbels when describing the beliefs of the Nazis, stated that ” hates Bougeoise Nationalism”. [22] The fascists know that we’ll keep shutting their marches down, they are now planning to march within other parades to protect their message of hate and white supremacy – it WON’T work. [7] The 1919 Fascist Manifesto listed as its very first point under politics that it will present “Universal suffrage polled on a regional basis, with proportional representation and voting and electoral office eligibility for women”, contradicting point 5 of Brett’s analysis which indicated that rampant sexism in favor of males was prevalent. [22] As many had expected, the immediate aftermath of the 1934 schism was first felt in the streets of Europe?s major cities, as the paramilitary wings of the various European and non-European Fascist Parties became involved in vicious street fighting and other violent incidents throughout the second half of 1934 and the first months of 1935. [21]

In the summer of 1968, sober-minded American voters saw the daily drumbeat of the “Antifa” fascists on television. [5] Delivered one of the most stunning rebukes to the “Antifa” fascist crowd in U.S. history. [5]

In favor of this position is the high number of Jewish people in positions of powers throughout Italy, from members of the National Fascist Party to Dr. Aldo Finzi, member of the Grand Fascist Council and personal friend of Mussolini?s and Gino Arias, chief fascist theorist of the Stato Corporativo and Fascist Economic Theory at Montreux, among others, and their influence within the Italian Fascist Regime. [21] While few people are willing to describe themselves as fascists or endorse the fascist regimes of the past, fascist parties and parties descended from fascist parties (such as the Alleanza Nazionale in Italy ) continue to be a minor force in European politics. [22] On the fifth day of the 1934 conference Mussolini and his allies went one step beyond by recognizing Theodor Duesterberg?s Stahlhelm paramilitary organization as the one true Fascist movement in Germany, elevating it from the observer status it had enjoyed since 1931. [21]

Over the years it has become quite clear that the traditional clear-cut definition of Fascism one might encounter at any political encyclopedia or even school dictionary is becoming increasingly difficult to apply to the present Fascist Movement. [21]

As could be expected, the Italians came to dominate the conference: faced with nearly two dozen self-proclaimed fascist movements much lacking in terms of organization, ideological unity or intellectual and social respectability or legitimacy, Italy stood up as a shining example of success that even some in the “decadent liberal democracies” would come to admire as a guarantor of order and a bulwark against Bolshevism. [21]

The prototypical fascist regime was that of Benito Mussolini, who ruled Italy from 1922 to 1943. [22] 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. [22] It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders. [22] 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.” [22] Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. [22] Fascist regimes have pushed their agendas by concentrating on a “scapegoat”–typically a group that is deemed to be foreign in origin or beliefs or both. [22] Hitler?s dream was in the end a German dream, the group has argued, and its ideas about a master German Race are incompatible with the outline and core of Fascist ideology as underlined in every document, declaration, speech and bit of text from the Charter of Carnaro to the Montreux Declaration and the Fascist Manifesto. [21] And, of course, the development of some sort of coherent fascist ideology, which IIRC isnt something that ever really happened IOTL. Not sure if that would make it more successful or less, though; on the one hand, it means that people actually have a definite program to advocate, but on the other hand it means that you lose the flexibility of the OTLs more imagery-focused version to adapt to the different economic and cultural milieus it operated in. [21] Latin American fascists (especially the Integralists and Falangists) and the Orthodox Milanese School further argue that Nazism?s blatant state atheism and promotion of “Positive Christianity” are explicitly contrary to Fascist ideology and even mankind?s morals. [21] The Italian Fascist Party program, first promulgated in 1919, demanded “Suppression of incorporated joint-stock companies, industrial or financial. [22] On the other side of the issue there are those who argue that the differences were purely pragmatic and motivated more by historical and political circumstance than by any form of loyalty to a perceived ideological canon or purity of the Fascist movement. [21] By the time of the third Montreux Conference, held on November 8th of 1931, the CAUR had identified fascist movements in 40 countries throughout the Europe, Asia, South Africa, Latin America, Australia and Canada. [21]

Fascism of the future will be called fake Churchill quotes. [23] I think that his election has brought us one step closer to the dystopian future laid out in the cinematic masterpiece that is Idiocracy, but it’s not like my party didn’t have opportunities to bring him down a peg. [7]

He was a very prominent member of the Italian Socialist Party in the years prior to World War I. 17 He edited several socialist papers and also wrote a satirical novel, The Cardinal’s Mistress, which was terribly written and mostly served as a vehicle for numerous anti-clerical rants. 18 Apparently, you can’t be a fascist leader without writing at least one really shitty book. [25] The rightward slide of the UK also has a direct and astounding international component If someone told me almost 10 years ago that the Islamophobic fascist football hooligan, Tommy Robinson, he who started the EDL, and who is an almost comical caricature of a typical English racist, would essentially have backing from people serving in the administration of the President of the United States, I’d have considered the person to be having some kind of nervous breakdown. [13] The anarchists and communists of the Antifa movement are notorious for promiscuously labeling those they target as fascists, Nazis, and racists. [26] Organizationally, they resemble Frei Korps that predated fascists in Germany and who were squashed once Hitler got to power; while their murders and other acts of violence terrorized some Socialists and Communists, they could not be tolerated by a state where all violence had to be controlled from a single center. [10] Fascists dismantled Italy’s constitutional limits on power and erected a police state. [25]

A popular form of punishment involved castor oil; fascist squads force-fed large quantities of castor oil to victims, causing excruciating pain and dangerously uncontrollable diarrhea. 41 Prisons in Italy were squalid, and the fear of being arrested led many anti-fascists to flee the country. [25] Antifa are self-styled anti-fascists who embrace fascist tactics and are notorious for assaulting conservatives and members of the so-called alt-right. [26] A famous slogan from Italian schools was, “War is to the male what childbearing is to the female.” 37 Childbirth was pushed hard by fascist authorities. [25] Roman Shukhevych was the commander of the Nachtingal and later, in 1943, became commander of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (the “Banderivtsy”, or UPA/UIA ), armed henchmen of the fascist Stepan Bandera, who after the war pretended that they had fought both Nazis and Communists. [10] For these workers this was not just a war to defeat the fascists but the beginning of a revolution. [12] A government which sends boys of fifteen to the front with rifles forty years old and keeps its biggest men and newest weapons In the rear is manifestly more afraid of the revolution the fascists”. [12] Mussolini and his followers put together a plan on how to seize the country: have armed fascists congregate in Rome and demand the resignation of the government and the installation of Mussolini as Prime Minister. [25] Mussolini was the original fascist (after all, he coined the term), but was never as good at it as that one Austrian dude in charge of Germany. [25] Although Mussolini publicly boasted of his military (3 million strong), he was privately aware that his soldiers were poorly equipped, not only due to the aforementioned industrial bottleneck, but also due to a lack of strategic resources and fascist Italy’s bureaucratic inefficiency. 69 Yeah, those trains really weren’t running on time. [25] Mussolini talked about changing society to a fascist one, not by sending in the jackboots. [13]

Stalin believed that if Britain and France were to drop this policy the Civil War could ultimately develop into a much larger conflict (Germany and Italy were already giving military aid to the fascists). [12] The first arms did not arrive until October and then it was out of fear that German and Italian arms would give a decisive edge to the fascists. [12] Anti-fascists calling other fascists right wing and using every fascist trick in the book to intimidate their chosen enemy. [27] The Tommy Robinson affair, and UKIP’s embracing of it, as well as its connivance with fascist conspiracists like Paul Joseph Watson (the leader of the English wing of Alex Jones? fascistic pro-Trump conspiracy media outlet “Infowars), are symptomatic of the radicalisation of the right. [13] Against this backdrop, we can now turn to a more detailed discussion on how we have become a society fearful, and/or celebrate regimes that are likely to lead the country towards a more fascist future. [11] If we are truly concerned about the country sliding towards fascist rule under such authoritarian programmes, we need to deconstruct and challenge the economic, cultural and political underpinnings of the current excitement over the two statements. [11] The Post and other corporate media continued to do its duty by attacking Putin for plainly saying “the forces backing Ukraine?s government in Kiev are fascists and neo-Nazis.” [10] Trade union membership was made mandatory for all workers in the nation, but every one was nationalized, and the ability for workers to strike and negotiate was strongly curtailed. 43 Since labor unions were a powerful force, the fascist government took the “divide and conquer” route by ordering industrialists in the nation to only recognize the state-controlled unions while cracking down on independent ones. [25] Since the 2014 fascist coup against the last legitimately elected Ukrainian government, the phrase’s popularity continues to grow among neo-Nazis and other far-right extremists who praise the crimes against humanity that the Kiev regime’s troops commit against the civilians of Donbass. [28] Entitled “Ukraine?s ultra-right militias are challenging the government to a showdown,” it said that fascists have gone on a rampage while the ruling clique in Kiev closes its eyes for the most part and prays that the problem somehow goes away on its own. [10] The fascists made some headway in parts of the country where little opposition was offered as a result of government hesitation. [12] What is new since the coup in February 2014 there has been the emergence from the shadows of ultra-nationalist (fascist) parties and movements, with both parliamentary and extra-parliamentary (i.e.,military) wings. [10] During the early days of the rapid German advance into the Soviet Union there were some 140 pogroms in the western Ukraine claiming the lives of between 13000-35000 people (Untermensch, in fascist terminology). [10] Fascists are notorious for diabolical plots to mask their corruption, nepotism, impunity and their servitude to undesirable external powers. [11] Instead they called for the formation of the Central Committee of Anti- Fascist Militias. [12] Now UKIP have a leader who is openly supporting the fascist, Islamophobic pogromist Tommy Robinson. [13] The militias formed in Barcelona lost no time in marching on Aragon where the capital, Saragossa, had been taken by the fascists. [12] Even though a fascist uprising would fail quickly, Italy’s king feared a civil conflict so soon after World War I, and he folded. 33 Take that as a lesson, kids. [25] Initially the Stalinists had felt a need to talk of making a revolution after the fascists were defeated. [12] Be especially wary of any commentary, as noted in the article, on the Jewish community supposedly blasting Russia for being the regional “fascists” when Israel sets the standard for fascistic oppression of their Palestinian populations. [10] They accused the anarchists of being unwilling to work with others to defeat the fascists. [12] In relation to their role during the Civil war observers have pointed out that they played a full part in the anti- fascist resistance. [12]

Fascism’s initial success came through intimidation tactics; he organized his war veterans into armed squads known as “Black Shirts” to beat up and kill anyone he didn’t like. 31 Their favorite activity was burning down opposing political headquarters (especially socialist ones) to terrorize opponents and increase their national stature. 32 By 1922, the fascist movement became powerful enough to have a real chance at taking power. [25] The then- Pope and his successors refused to accept the destruction of their so-called “temporal power”, and they used every means at their disposal to undermine the Italian state. 57 The Popes described themselves as “prisoners in the Vatican.” 58 With the high number of Catholics in the Fascist Party, Mussolini figured that making peace with the Church would be a quick way to gain popularity. [25] Despite having a populist outlook, fascist regimes are often exclusive, racist, elitist, tribalistic and nepotistic, since their power revolves around selected groups within the “chosen? race and a supreme leader of that group. [11] Anunayaka?s statements appeal to those who are ideologically conditioned to think that having political control over their land and resources, even under the LTTE or a fascist regime, is the answer to the economic as well as political problems of their respective communities. [11] Fascist regimes draw on aggressively militarised and often racist nationalism to legitimise the regimentation of the economic and social policies and suppression of dissent against them. [11] While Fascist regimes around the world have taken different forms and national variants, they draw their identity and legitimacy from the cultural context in which they operate. [11] During the Great Patriotic War (Second World War), the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) which collaborated with Hitler’s fascist regime popularised the phrase “Slava Ukrayini! Heroyam slava” (Glory to Ukraine! Glory to the heroes!). [28]

What we came to know as the eastern establishment or U.S. Anglo alliance, all lunatics partnered with the equally lunatic zionists have been playing these games for well over 100 years, historians in the far future will have trouble distinguishing events from the first and second world war not to mention the the current period, war is a profitable industry and if we cannot get the Russians to stand in for the bad guys we are going to have to create our own again. [10] A group calling itself C14 (for the fourteen-word ultra-right motto, “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children”) not only beat up a socialist politician and celebrated Hitler?s birthday by stabbing an antiwar activist, but bragged about it on its website. [10] In contrast to the popular perception of the present government as one without clear purpose, direction and firm leadership, there is a growing consensus among the public that those who ended the war against the LTTE are capable of leading the country towards a better future because they possess the coherent narrative and will it takes to guide both the economy and the nation. [11] Future generations will inherit an irredeemable debt trap, and the country is rapidly losing its economic and political sovereignty. [11] That is what launched the Regime change; to keep the Ukraine looking West, not East (where the future of the World is now being narratedTrump knows this too, and is looking East toward development, via resolving Korean crisis, meetings with Xi and with Putin on July 16th). [10] Although the CNT had great ideas of what the anarchist future would look like and on the need for the working class itself to make the revolution, it could not make a link between the revolutionary situation and the goal of libertarian communism. [12] At their 1937 Congress these workers developed a health plan for a future anarchist Spain which could have been implemented if the revolution had been successful. [12]

The much-anticipated constitutional changes allowing for devolution of power are unlikely in the near future if supposed fears of resurgence of the LTTE and of anti-minority sentiments occupy a central place in the coming election campaigns. [11] Boys were trained to be future soldiers; this included mock military drills and the idea that schoolyard brawls were natural and should be rewarded. 37 Boys were told to memorize the slogan, “I believe in Rome, the Eternal, the mother of my country? I believe in the genius of Mussolini? and in the resurrection of the Empire.” 37 Girls were trained to be wives and homemakers, and their only ambition permitted by schools was to marry and have children. [25]

Did you know that the Italian Fascists called their economic system “Corporatism” – according to wikipedia: “Italian Fascism involved a corporatist political system in which the economy was collectively managed by employers, workers and state officials by formal mechanisms at the national level.” [14] Revolution isn’t exactly a conservative talking point, now is it? Or consider an early program of Mussolini, “the father of fascism”: some of the things these early fascists wanted included a lowering of the minimum voting age, the end of the draft, the repeal of titles of nobility, a minimum wage, building “rigidly secular” schools for the proletariat, a large progressive tax system. in other words, a classically leftist platform. [14] The “left” has wrongly decided that the defining trait of fascism is an authoritarian leader, that is clearly false, and because Trump appears somewhat authoritarian, the left decides that he, his administration and his supporters are the fascists, despite the OBVIOUS fact that they are conservative/traditionalist people, that is to say, the very antithesis of the ORIGINAL (and only useful) meaning of fascism. [14] People arent saying “dont educate others about Fascism”, theyre saying “dont allow spaces which solely function as fascist propaganda nexus to exist”. [29]

As Goldberg puts it,. the French Revolution was the first totalitarian revolution, the mother of modern totalitarianism, and the spiritual model for the Italian Fascist, German Nazi, and Russian Communist revolutions. [14] No, these days simply asking questions about the sweeping changes, the radical re-engineering of everything – from our romantic relationships right up to international relations – with the fascist force of “movements” and “activism” makes you a conservative.
