American Fascism

We have arrived.  Teeming, huddled.  We have arrived to the edge and our shadows are now cast over the precipice.  We have arrived at the threshold of mass American fascism.  It is a discriminatory ideology as well as a state of mind and we as a nation have collectively arrived at that grim station.  Unmistakably, we have arrived as evidenced by the very fabric and sinews of the divisive policies and personalities of the presidential forerunners: Clinton and Trump.

But let us here first define the term ‘fascism’.  Let us look at the founder of modern fascism and how he defined it.  No, the originator was not Hitler, nor was it Stalin or Mussolini; it was in fact another Italian by the name of Gabriele d’Annunzio, a popular poet and libertine who lived at the turn of the 20th century (1863 – 1938).  His infamous manifesto was adopted thereafter by Hitler and Mussolini, adding their own brushstroke to the diabolical canvas.

With his own party members and elders publicly attacking him full-throttle, Trump has become the elite underdog – a conceptual oxymoron in and of itself, but such is the notable upside-down character of the 2016 presidential campaign.

The main reason for these attacks appears to be Trump’s “neutral” position on Israel and his rejection of warmongering Zioconism and PNAC’s project of endless wars in the middle east – expensive military conflicts that benefit Israel and only Israel, not the USA’s interests and most certainly not Israel’s Arab neighbors and world peace at large.
