A Uniquely American Fascism

Mein Trumpf

Well, it finally happened. America will now enter a questionable stage of neo-fascism, perhaps best defined by Sinclair Lewis:

“From It Can’t Happen Here (1935): “But he saw too that in America the struggle was befogged by the fact that the worst Fascists were they who disowned the word ‘Fascism’ and preached enslavement to Capitalism under the style of Constitutional and Traditional Native American Liberty.”

It was certainly a stunning loss for the Democratic party. They have only themselves to blame – They abused Bernie Sanders and drove a third of their voting block away. They stole the primary. They fielded an extremely flawed candidate and smugly dismissed “the little people”. Remember in Bill Clinton”s administration when he was asked about his ramming through banking deregulation, mass incarceration and welfare shredding – his response was “Where else are the voters going to go?. That attitude was pervasive in the DNC.

For years the Democratic party has moved to the right, resembling the Republican party of Nixon’s era – While the Republican party created fertile ground for a uniquely American fascism. It required a strong bully-boy at the helm and they found their guy.

But there is something else here; for all of Trump’s racist attachments there are plenty of seemingly normal working class people who feel they have been shit on for years and just want to blow the system up. Michael Moore summed it up very well:

But to The Democratic National Committee, this is a self-inflicted wound. The strategy was to elevate Trump to a higher status in this election ploy:

“Elevating Trump” (excerpt)

Here are excerpts from an email (click on attachments) outlining strategy and goals to the DNC dated 4/7/2015. Well before Trump officially declared his candidacy.

Force all Republican Candidates to lock themselves into extreme conservative positions that will hurt them in a general election…

The variety of candidates is a positive here, and many of the lesser known can serve as a cudgel to move the more established candidates further to the right. In this scenario, we don’t want to marginalize the candidates, but make them more ‘Pied Piper’ candidates who actually represent the mainstream Republican Party. Pied Piper candidates include, but aren’t limited to:

Ted Cruz

Donald Trump

Ben Carson

We need to be elevating the Pied Piper candidates so that they are leaders of the pack and tell the press to [take] them seriously.

Here it is: a premeditated, purposeful and extremely reckless design to bring Trump into the national spotlight. If doing so sabotages the informed public discourse that democracy depends on, so be it.

——————————-

There you have it. The DNC shot itself in the foot and is now bleeding out. They’re toast. Never trust those bastards again. Time for some major restructuring, a return to the “New Deal” Democratic era. They need to listen to their constituents and peel away the Republican-lite costume that merely throws a bone to the identity-politics crowd while they help strip-mine the social service system.

So fuck James Carville. You are a has-been from a bygone era.

Fuck Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the DNC that ripped off the Sanders movement.

Fuck Donna Brazile who fed Clinton debate questions from her privileged seat at CNN and was then named as Wasserman Schultz’s replacement.

Fuck CNN.
Fuck Fox News obviously.
And Fuck the gatekeepers at MSNBC. This means you too, Rachael Maddow.

The alternative media is the only thing we can rely on for real information, the networks are designed to disseminate propaganda.

If there is a silver lining to this cloud, it is that there may be room for coalition building with some of the Trump voters, believe it or not there are issues we all share – health care, halting the endless wars, and rebuilding America’s infrastructure. When those opportunities occur, we should welcome them.

On a historical note; guess what also happened on November 8th in the distant past?

November 8th 1923 – Hitler’s failed “Beer Hall Putsch” coup in Munich.

One last note; While surveying all the hand-wringing and gnashing of teeth displayed by mainstream liberals, the best analysis I heard came from this “Counterpunch” podcast with Paul Street, someone with far more radical credentials. Give it a listen:

Stay and fight.
