But None Dare Call it Fascism

Just another budding illegal, unconstitutional “initiative” from our fascist regime.

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is weighing plans to circumvent Congress and act on its own to curtail tax benefits for United States companies that relocate overseas to lower their tax bills, seeking to stanch a recent wave of so-called corporate inversions, Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew said on Tuesday.

Treasury Department officials are rushing to assemble an array of options that would essentially wipe out the economic incentive for the deals, Mr. Lew said. No final decision has been made.

“The question is, Can we do enough that it will materially change the economics of inversions so that companies will make different decisions?” Mr. Lew said in an interview. “The things we are looking at look to me like they could very materially change the economics of inversions.”

Yep. You’d force them to relocate completely and take their jobs with them. WINNING!

But no, you can’t call imperial edicts circumventing the Constitution designed to put private property under government control “fascist”, because that’s not what “fascism” means. “Fascism” is putting private property under government contr… Oh waitaminnit… Never mind. Obama is “fundamentally a good man”, so pay no attention, you “extremist”, and look over there… SQUIRREL!

Now shut up, get in line and vote for Chris Christie or whatever RINO shit sandwich we pick for you, you traitor, racist peasant whom we absolutely love. Until you’ve voted, that is.

We have to admit, that’s a really — interesting strategy the GOP has adopted.

Thatisall.

    If you haven’t read Whittaker Chambers’s memoir, Witness, it’s a must.

    This is Whittaker Chambers reflecting on the Alger Hiss trial, and what it revealed about America, and the creeping socialist plague.

    “The simple fact is that when [1948] I took up my little sling and aimed at Communism, I also hit something else. What I hit was the forces of that great socialist revolution, which, in the name of liberalism, spasmodically, incompletely, somewhat formlessly, but always in the same direction, has been inching its ice cap over the nation for two decades.

    “This is not a charge. My opinion of that revolution is not at issue. It is a statement of fact that need startle no one who has voted for that revolution in whole or in part, and, consciously or unconsciously, a majority of the nation has so voted for years. It was the forces of that revolution that I struck at the point of the struggle for power.

    “And with that we come to the heart of the Hiss Case and all its strange manifestations. No one could have been more dismayed than I at what I had hit, for though I knew it existed, I still had no adequate idea of its extent, the depth of its penetration, or the fierce vindictiveness of its revolutionary temper, which is a reflex of its struggle to keep and advance its political power.

    “It was the force of this revolution that had smothered the Hiss Case (and much else) for a decade, and fought to smother it in 1948. These were the forces that made the phenomenon of Alger Hiss possible; had made it possible for him to rise steadily in Government and reach the highest post AFTER he was already under suspicion as a Communist in many quarters, including Congress, and under the scrutiny of the FBI.

    “Alger Hiss is only one name that stands for the whole Communist penetration of Government. He could not be exposed without raising the question of the real political temper and purposes of those who had protected and advanced him, and with whom he was so closely identified that they could not tell his breed from their own.”

    This he wrote over 50 years ago. That ice cap has advanced a lot further south in the time since.

    And we see now, and have since Comrade Zero was selected, that the country is in the hands of socialists and communists, from “right” to Left. We have one party, and part of it is somewhat less socialist, while the other part is full-on communist.
