Opinion: No Mark Lenin. The Democrats Aren't Marxists. They're Fascists.

In response to Biden Press Secretary Jen Psaki’s recent admission that the administration and Big Tech actively collaborate to target political rivals for posting ‘misinformation’, a group of 189 House Republicans led by Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers fired off a letter demanding answers about the White House’s activities that are “undermining (the) First Amendment… .”

But President Biden’s dastardly plot has been afoot for quite some time.

Last year, Dr. Anthony Fauci collaborated with Facebook to silence scrutiny of the Chinese Communist Party over its release of COVID-19 from the Wuhan lab. In February, two academics called for a government takeover of social media to institute total censorship of dissident beliefs. Harvard Law School Professor Jack Goldsmith, tapped for the president’s exploratory commission on reforming the U.S. Supreme Court, argued in an August 2020 Atlantic op-ed that “in the debate over freedom versus control of the global network, China was largely correct, and the U.S. was wrong.” The narrative expanded in April when a hundred corporate leaders convened to collaborate in proliferating the ‘cancel culture’ in response to voter integrity laws passed in ‘red states’ across the country. The nature of these state-level reforms was distorted through false statements by far-left activists and President Biden who supported Major League Baseball’s decision to move the All Star Game from Atlanta to Denver after the Georgia legislature passed an election reform law that requires voter ID. More recently, the merger of government with corporate America was endorsed by the Democrats’ token ‘centrist’, Sen. Joe Manchin, during his July 1st appearance on CNN’s Cuomo Primetime to compel Republicans to pass the highly-unpopular John Lewis Voting Rights Act that would ban voter ID and permit ballot harvesting by applying ‘the carrot and the stick’ to secure a ‘bipartisan deal’. He didn’t mince words either. Manchin suggested that “when corporate America pushes back… I think people will push back and I think when constituents push back… the legislatures will do the right thing or they’ll be gone.” Clearly Manchin, as with the Biden administration, believes that in the pursuit of power, materialism matters over basic ethical and moral principles.

Even democracy.

Given the current socio-political climate and the unholy alliance between the Biden administration and major corporations, understanding the Democrats’ dangerous obsession with things like gun control and its historic links to persecution and genocide have never been more critical. For instance, a current bill including ‘red flag laws’ and a nationwide confiscation plan, according to gun grabber extraordinaire Sen. Dianne Feinstein, will target ‘domestic terrorism’. Yet if gun control fails in Washington, or if the U.S. Supreme Court rules against a similar law in the future, will more retailers like Dick’s Sporting Goods and Walmart collude with the Biden administration to remove their inventories of firearms? Will Big Tech companies block advertising by small gun retailers and gun shows? Because all white Americans will inevitably pay for ‘slavery reparations’, it isn’t inconceivable that an even more radical Democratic Party could someday pass racial legislation that mirrors South Africa’s ‘anti-white’ statutes―laws that were inspired by the late Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe. Might those include preferential care for minorities at hospitals like one in Boston? What about religious liberty, when Google ‘canceled’ an Idaho church’s website last year due to biblical references to plagues during the COVID-19 lockdown “that lack reasonable sensitivity towards or capitalize on a natural disaster, atrocity, conflict, death, or other tragic event”? The connections between gun control or the ability to participate in other vital areas of society proposed by the Biden-Harris regime, as it was under Nazi Germany’s ‘racial laws’, will be similarly targeted along racial, religious, and political lines.

Conservative commentator Mark Levin

Therefore, Republicans and conservative pundits like Mark Levin should dispense with the tired old tropes characterizing the Democratic Party as ‘Marxists’ or ‘socialists’. They don’t know their enemy. When governments and corporations converge on public policy, free enterprise and democracy die. This alliance can operate beyond the jurisdiction of the Constitution. With this understanding, they will subject our legal rights to the court of public opinion while hiding behind the 1st Amendment.

The ruling technocracy, similarly organized to Communist China’s political economy, laid low America without firing a shot by indulging our addiction to consumption. They’ve convinced generations of us to purchase our tyranny like any lay commodity. The merger of the state with multinational corporations parallels the salient objective of fascist Italian dictator Benito Mussolini to create a “full-blown Corporative state” in control of all political, moral, and economic forces. In fact, both Fascism and its bloodier cousin Nazism were inspired by the Left, and Mussolini launched his movement as an open socialist. Decades after Mussolini’s downfall, Ronald Reagan, then the Governor of California, told Mike Wallace in an interview that “if fascism ever comes to America, it will come in the name of liberalism. And what is fascism? Fascism is private ownership, private enterprise, but total government control and regulation.”

“Well, isn’t this the liberal philosophy?” Reagan later asked.

In fact, Mussolini chose corporatism as the socio-economic driver for the new collectivist ideology developed by Hegelian scholar Giovanni Gentile, which brought together the various economic interest groups in political organizations to settle their differences through negotiation. In tribute to President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Mussolini explained that “fascism… is like your New Deal!”

The facts back his claim.

By 1932, the accomplishments of Mussolini and his Fascist Party were widely admired. Many credited fascism for saving Italy from falling under a pro-Soviet communist dictatorship after Russia fell to the Bolsheviks. Until 2016, the Democratic Party clung to its social democracy ideology, which Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin had labeled to be “the moderate wing of fascism” and “twins.” Mussolini―who said “I have been and am a socialist”―wrote that “Fascism entirely agrees with Mr. (John) Maynard Keynes, despite the latter’s prominent position as a Liberal.” An American admirer, Hugh Johnson, chosen by FDR to design the New Deal to cope with the problems of the Great Depression, adopted some of Mussolini’s policies, most notably the format for the Tennessee Valley Authority, or TVA. Thus the modern platform of the Democratic Party owes much to Mussolini’s corporatist programs.

Gentile genuinely admired Marxism’s systematic unity of thought, its historicity under a narrative woven into an organic evolution beholden to the idea of struggle and conflict (dialectic materialism) as time progresses. You might say that Bernie Sanders finds little to complain about Biden’s fascist operation in principal. But where Marx detailed that revolution should be waged by the proletariat against the oppressive capitalists (“bourgeoisie”), Gentile focused on a warfare between weak and strong nations given that “mankind only progresses through division, and progress is achieved through the clash and victory of one side over another.” America, as one of the most multicultural and polyethnic countries in the world, better enables the paradigm of pitting “weak and strong nations” than throughout the mostly ethnically homogenous nations of Europe. America, according to Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary, might be best described as “a community of people composed of one or more nationalities… .” To define the American people therefore is to label it ‘a politically organized nationality’―a ‘melting pot’ of many nations, if you will, united under a civic nationalism. Where Marxism seeks to build socialism into an amoral atheist utopia equal beneath the state (or ‘communism’), Gentile believed that “man,” being immoral, “is something which ought to be overcome.” Thus for the Democrats, the task to tear down an ‘immoral’ America consecrated on some fictitious foundation of ‘white supremacy’ will mirror the catalyst of one world war setting the stage for the bloodiest century in human history. In 1918, three Slav peoples formed a multicultural, polyethnic nation called ‘Yugoslavia’ without actually fusing it together into a Yugoslav country. The tragedy following Marshal Josep Broz Tito’s death in 1980 beheld ethnic cleansing and genocide during the 1990’s on a scale Europe hadn’t seen since the Third Reich. Parallels are emerging between the fate of Yugoslavia and America’s nihilistic descent into political and racial balkanization. And instead of a great proletarian revolution desired by Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Biden’s fascist technocracy seeks to brutally ‘overcome’ America’s ‘immoral’ white male oppressors through the police state and loyal oligarchs.

True to form, Mussolini proclaimed that “We (as fascists) do not argue with those who disagree with us, we destroy them.” Accordingly, as ‘red states’ pass more popular laws that clash with the elites’ designs regarding free speech, religious liberty, due process, privacy rights, Title IX protections, child protections against transgender operations, heartbeat bills that restrict abortions on demand, penalties against ‘Big Tech’, etc., we can anticipate that these fascist technocrats will expand and tighten their grip. All that’s occurring now―from a media that openly colludes as the propaganda ministries for the Democratic Party (“Fairness is overrated,” according to Lester Holt), to ‘cancel culture’, and now Biden’s ascent as America’s non compos mentis ‘dictator’―is unsustainable. It’s an understatement then for Ben Shapiro to suggest that this is “a truly dangerous trend that will rip America apart.”

Perhaps it already has.
