Hyperbole? Not so fast. Most here have already read The Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein and The Family by Jeff Sharlett. And I am sure most of you have read Howard Zinn's A Peoples History, United States
Most here know about Project Paperclip. If not, do read up on it. Project Paperclip helps explain how fascism was imported to the USA after WWII.
I have taken all I have learned from the above and believe that today's Tea Party GOP is the culmination of at least 80 years of planning by those who don't respect the foundational principles of America.
I believe the fascist goals pre-date WWII in the US. Teddy Roosevelt, a Republican, tried to end their fascist plans:
Roosevelt attempted to move the Republican Party (GOP) toward Progressivism, including trust busting and increased regulation of businesses. Roosevelt coined the phrase "Square Deal" to describe his domestic agenda, emphasizing that the average citizen would get a fair share under his policies.The globalists of the early 20th Century went underground and set up many secret societies. The Family is just one, the John Birch Society is another. The labor movement put a dent into their unfettered profits and they haven't stopped trying to undermine and destroy all the gains made possible by FDR FOR the American workers. The sons and grandsons of those original globalists continue their efforts to kill any/all Social Safety nets here and abroad. Austerity is just an excuse.
They believe that the end justifies the means.
I rewrote this authoritarian premise: THE END JUSTIFIES THE MEANNESS
The US fascist fans funded Hitler, a fact born by the research of many. Even IBM helped Hitler.
I provide the details in the following diary for those interested in an historical sojourn to the roots of the movement now led by the Koch brothers, sons of one of the founders of the John Birch Society:
Their goal: A Proto-Fascist (Business run) Government, Union Free Country, Privatized Education, and the End of Social Safety Nets all in the Name of Jesus and Freedom.
These fanatics call themselves Christian, but are not. They will stop at nothing to gain total control. Hubris is their middle name. Greed is one of their major motivators. But CONTROL is the driving force. They want to play God.
They have taught, raised, praised, and promoted the Romneys and Ryans here and in every country in the world. They came out of the dark corners with the Tea Party here. They feel emboldened. And, they may be winning.
It is literally up to the citizens of the United States to stand up and stop these plans before they actually succeed in controlling the world and all its peoples.
Hyperbole? I think not.
We must become informed, inform others, and stop cooperating with their plans.
I hope you will read and share. It's a lot to take in, but it's critical to know what we are all struggling against.
Also, this is a very interesting read:
If only the world had heeded the warnings of history, so cleverly laid before the audience by Ambassador Dodd. For that matter, Dodd's speech, given to the Berlin Branch of the American Chamber of Commerce, could have been directed at the US, Europe, and the world today. Granted, there is not a blatant, heinous Hitler rising to power; however, the field is ripe for a repeat, clearly demonstrated by history over and over again.Can we hear the warnings today?
The social experiment, in scientific terms, has a fixed number of variables. Why is it so difficult for world leaders to learn, adjust policies, and avoid the disasterous outcomes repeated innumerable times? Of course, human nature, fight or flight, survival, and what we call character defects, etc. This article won't address this debate.
However, Dodd's speech brilliantly walks the audience through history perfectly depicting the wrongful policies that repeatedly create chaos and misery. The speech is masterful. I can't believe I hadn't heard of this before.
