Trump: We Wish the Problem Was Fascism…
…But It’s Really Racism

I find the spectacle of liberals heroically mounting the barricades against Trump-fascism rather amusing.

For one thing, liberals don’t crush fascism.

Liberals appease fascism, then they exploit fascism.

In between there’s a great big war, where communists crush fascism.

That’s pretty much the lesson of WWII.

Second thing is, Trump isn’t fascist.

In my opinion, Trump’s an old-fashioned white American nativist, which is pretty much indistinguishable from old-fashioned racist when considering the subjugation of native Americans and African-Americans and Asian immigrants, but requires that touch of “nativist” nuance when considering indigenous bigotry against Irish, Italian, and Jewish immigrants and citizens.

Tagging him as “fascist” allows his critics to put an alien, non-American gloss on a set of attitudes and policies that have been mainstreamed in American politics for at least 150 years and predate the formulation of fascism by several decades if not a century. Those nasty vetting/exclusion things he’s proposing are as American as apple pie. For those interested in boning up on the Know Nothings and the Chinese Exclusion Act, I have this piece for you.

And for anybody who doesn’t believe the US government does not already engage in intensive “extreme” vetting and targeting of all Muslims immigrants, especially those from targeted countries, not only to identify potential security risks but to groom potential intelligence assets, I got the Brooklyn Bridge to sell you right here:

Real fascism, in theory, is a rather interesting and nasty beast. In my opinion, it turns bolshevism on its head by using race or ethnic identity instead of class identity as the supreme, mobilizing force in national life.

In both fascism and bolshevism, democratic outcomes lack inherent legitimacy. National legitimacy resides in the party, which embodies the essence of a threatened race or class in a way that Hegel might appreciate but Marx probably wouldn’t. Subversion of democracy and seizure of state power are not only permissible; they are imperatives.

The need to seize state power and hold it while a fascist or bolshevik agenda is implemented dictates the need for a military force loyal to and subservient to the party and its leadership, not the state.

The purest fascism movement I know of exists in Ukraine. I wrote about it here, and it’s a piece I think is well worth reading to understand what a political movement organized on fascist principles really looks like.

And Trump ain’t no fascist.

He’s a nativist running a rather incompetent campaign.

It’s a little premature to throw dirt on the grave of the Trump candidacy, perhaps (I’ll check back in on November 9), but it looks like he spent too much time glorying in the adulation of his white male nativist base and too little time, effort, and money trying to deliver a plausible message that would allow other demographics to shrug off the “deplorable” tag and vote for him. I don’t blame/credit the media too much for burying Trump, a prejudice of mine perhaps. I blame Trump’s inability to construct an effective phalanx of pro-Trump messengers, a failure that’s probably rooted in the fact that Trump spent the primary and general campaign at war with the GOP establishment.

The only capital crime in politics is disunity, and the GOP and Trump are guilty on multiple counts.

The most interesting application of the “fascist” analysis, rather surprisingly, applies to the Clinton campaign, not the Trump campaign, when considering the cultivation of a nexus between big business and *ahem* racially inflected politics.

It should be remembered that fascism does not succeed in the real world as a crusade by race-obsessed lumpen. It succeeds when fascists are co-opted by capitalists, as was unambiguously the case in Nazi Germany and Italy. And big business supported fascism because it feared the alternatives: socialism and communism.

That’s because there is no more effective counter to class consciousness than race consciousness.

That’s one reason why, in my opinion, socialism hasn’t done a better job of catching on in the United States. The contradictions between black and white labor formed a ready-made wedge. The North’s abhorrence at the spread of slavery into the American West before the Civil War had more to do a desire to preserve these new realms for “free” labor—“free” in one context, from the competition of slave labor—than egalitarian principle.

White labor originally had legal recourse to beating back the challenge/threat of African-American labor instead of accommodating it as a “class” ally; it subsequently relied on institutional and customary advantages.

If anyone harbors illusions concerning the kumbaya solidarity between white and black labor in the post-World War II era, I think the article The Problem of Race in American Labor History by Herbert Hill (a freebie on JSTOR) is a good place to start.

The most reliable wedge against working class solidarity and a socialist narrative in American politics used to be white privilege which, when it was reliably backed by US business and political muscle, was a doctrine of de factowhite supremacy.

However, in this campaign, the race wedge has cut the other way in a most interesting fashion. White conservatives are appalled, and minority liberals energized, by the fact that the white guy, despite winning the majority white male vote, lost to a black guy not once but twice, giving a White Twilight/Black Dawn (TM) vibe to the national debate.

The perception of marginalized white clout is reinforced by the nomination of Hillary Clinton and her campaign emphasis on the empowerment of previously marginalized but now demographically more important groups.

The Clinton campaign has been all about race and its doppelganger—actually, the overarching and more ear-friendly term that encompasses racial, ethnic, gender, and sexual loyalties—“identity politics.”

The most calculated and systematic employment of racial politics was employed by the Hillary Clinton campaign in the Democratic primary to undercut the socialist-lite populist appeal of Bernie Sanders.

ORDER IT NOW

My personal disdain for the Clinton campaign was born on the day that John Lewis intoned “I never saw him” in order to dismiss the civil rights credentials of Bernie Sanders while announcing the Black Congressional Caucus endorsement of Hillary Clinton. Bear in mind that during the 1960s, Sanders had affiliated his student group at the University of Chicago with Lewis’ SNCC, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee; during the same era, Hillary Clinton was at Wellesley condemning “the snicks” for their excessively confrontational tactics.

Ah, politics.

To understand the significance of this event, one should read Fracture by the guru of woke Clintonism, Joy Reid. Or read my piece on the subject. Or simply understand that after Hillary Clinton lost Lewis’s endorsement, the black vote, and the southern Democratic primaries to Barack Obama in 2008, and she was determined above all to secure and exploit monolithic black support in the primaries and, later on, the general in 2016.

So, in order to prevent Sanders from splitting the black vote to her disadvantage on ideological/class lines, Clinton played the race card. Or, as we put it today when discussing the championing of historically disadvantaged a.k.a. non white male heterosexual groups, celebrated “identity politics”.

In the primary, this translated into an attack on Sanders and the apparently mythical “Bernie bro” as racist swine threatening the legacy of the first black president, venerated by the African American electorate, Barack Obama.

In the general, well, Donald Trump and his supporters provided acres more genuine grist for the identity warrior mill.

Trump’s populism draws its heat from American nativism, not “soak the rich” populism of the Sandernista stripe, and it was easily submerged in the “identity politics” narrative.

Trump’s ambitions to gain traction for a favorable American/populist/outsider narrative for his campaign have been frustrated by determined efforts to frame him as anti-Semitic, racist against blacks and Hispanics, sexist, and bigoted against the disabled—and ready to hold the door while Pepe the Frog feeds his opponents, including a large contingent of conservative and liberal Jewish journalists subjected to unimaginable invective by the Alt-Right– into the ovens.

As an indication of the fungible & opportunistic character of the “identity politics” approach, as far as I can tell from a recent visit to a swing state, as the Clinton campaign pivoted to the general, the theme of Trump’s anti-black racism has been retired in favor of pushing his offenses against women and the disabled. Perhaps this reflects the fact that Clinton has a well-advertised lock on the African-American vote and doesn’t need to cater to it; also, racism being what it is, playing the black card is not the best way to lure Republicans and indies to the Clinton camp.

The high water mark of the Clinton African-American tilt was perhaps the abortive campaign to turn gun control into a referendum on the domination of Congress by white male conservatives. It happened a few months ago, so who remembers? But John Lewis led a sit-in occupation of the Senate floor in the wake of the Orlando shootings to highlight how America’s future was being held hostage to the whims of Trump-inclined white pols.

That campaign pretty much went by the wayside (as did Black Lives Matter, a racial justice initiative partially funded by core Clinton backer George Soros; interesting, no?) as a) black nationalists started shooting policemen and b) Clinton kicked off a charm campaign to help wedge the black-wary GOP establishment away from Trump.

There is more to Clintonism, I think, than simply playing the “identity politics” card to screw Bernie Sanders or discombobulate the Trump campaign. “Identity politics” is near the core of the Clintonian agenda as a bulwark against any class/populist upheaval that might threaten her brand of billionaire-friendly liberalism.

In my view, a key tell is Clinton’s enduring and grotesque loyalty to her family’s charitable foundation, an operation that in my opinion has no place on the resume of a public servant, as a font of prestige, conduit for influence, and model for billionaire-backed global engagement.

By placing the focus of the campaign on identity politics and Trump’s actual and putative crimes against various identity groups, the Clinton campaign has successfully obscured what I consider to be its fundamental identity as a vehicle for neoliberal globalists keen to preserve and employ the United States as a welcoming environment and supreme vehicle for supra-sovereign business interests.

Clintonism’s core identity is not, in other words, as a crusade for groups suffering from the legacy and future threat of oppression by Trump’s white male followers. It is a full-court press to keep the wheels on the neoliberal sh*twagon as it careens down the road of globalization, and it recognizes the importance in American democracy of slicing and dicing the electorate by identity politics and co-opting useful demographics as the key to maintaining power.

In my view, the Trump and Clinton campaigns are both protofascist.

Trump has cornered the somewhat less entitled and increasingly threatened white ethnic group, some of whom are poised to make the jump to white nationalism with or without him.

Clinton has cornered the increasingly entitled and assertive global billionaire group, which adores the class-busting anti-socialist identity-based politics she practices.

But the bottom line is race.

U.S. racism has stacked up 400 years of tinder that might take a few hundred more years, if ever, to burn off. And until it does, every politician in the country is going to see his or her political future in flicking matches at it.

And that’s what we’re seeing in the current campaign.

A lot.

Not fascism.

  1. “In my opinion, it turns bolshevism on its head by using race or ethnic identity instead of class identity as the supreme, mobilizing force in national life.”

    Imagine NATIONal life being organized around the nation. Too horrible to think about it!

    “democratic outcomes lack inherent legitimacy”

    Fascism isn’t based on electoral democracy, so where are the democratic outcomes to lack legitimacy in the first place? Legitimacy is an anthropological term (not a political one), meaning acceptance of those who rule over you. What determines your acceptance is mediated by the reigning social narrative – Is he of the royal line? Was he elected in a free and fair ballot? Is he a philosopher king?

    ” It succeeds when fascists are co-opted by capitalists”

    Lee shows his socialist credentials here While promoting corporate interest above all else is a great failing of neoliberalism, obviously corporations are required. The point of fascist theory is to dictate to them that their activities must ultimately benefit the nation, and not exclusively themselves. Unless you are a unvarnished Marxist, there was really not all that much wrong with Il Duce’s economic policy. He was roundly praised in the Anglo press at the time, and through our own foolishness we alienated him, sending him into Hitler’s arms.

    Arguably the totalitarian proclivities of fascism were to its discredit, but we on the right must identity the good things about the system and defend them from nutty screeds like this, or else our nationalist aspirations will be summarily dismissed because muh fashism

  2. The best analysis of the Clinton campaign I’ve read this season. Moral of the story: Identity politics beats class politics (and probably any other kind of politics).

    Ergo, multiculturalism is a social disease.

    In between there’s a great big war, where communists crush fascism.

    The United States defeated fascism, not communism/”communists”.

    This, from a Weste-centered viewpoint.
    But even in the East, the Japanese would have crushed any Korean/Chinese/other opposition without much trouble, were it not for the USA.
    And I don’t think communists in Laos/Cambodia/Vietnam/China took power by defeating “fascism”, though I know very little of that.

    Your assertion is absolutely incorrect.

    Japan's incursions into China began soon after WWI. Aided by a couple of warlords, and later, division between the nationalists and communists, they managed to set up two very odd states, one in the inner Mongolia of now, and one in Manchuria (lasted a little longer).

    The big project was conquering China; part of the theory, ironically, was that as linguistically and vaguely racially related, Japan was the natural successor to the Mongols and Manchu to run the place. They got nowhere on that, despite the Nationalists having a shortage of ammunition and bad weapons, and the Communists deciding to play neutral much of the time (to their discredit).

    Where they briefly held territory, they behaved so badly that nobody supported them.

    By the time of the Pearl Harbour attack, nowhere was really under control.

    US intervention made no difference to the result in China, except to provide the Nationalists passage to Taiwan, where they were not especially popular to the native and earlier ethnic-Chinese immigrants while Taiwan was a Japanese colony.

    Slaughters of the latter by the former are well known.

    I also dislike this article from Peter Lee.
    As also an Asian, it is too obsessed with race baiting. Usually find Mr. Lee's writing interesting.

  8. liberals don’t crush fascism.

    In between there’s a great big war, where communists crush fascism.

    Fascism is just another branch of socialism, and sometimes called corporatism. nationalism has nothing to do with racism and everything to do with one’s nation. Lee refuses to recognize this truth because he’d rather throw around the worn out label of “racism”. Anyone who has been to asia knows they are the most racist people in the world. Even more racist than blacks. Many of them are also nationalists. I don’t have a problem with either one as I am fine keeping the races separate and our nationalities intact. I do have a problem when ideologists like Lee hide behind lies to try and promote and or defend their own BS.

    Look at the history of Asia and you will find plenty of purges similar to what previous generations of amerikans did to the indians. You will find this in any culture of place yo want to look. We are not alone in this, but Lee would like to try and use that lie against us to prove his point. But the real point is that Lee is a lying revisionist just like all the rest of the left.

    Your leftist lies no longer have any power or sway, Lee. So go pound sand, and then go back to asia. This is our country and fuck you if you don’ like it.

    According to your perspective, inter-racial or inter-ethnic "purges" are different and worse than intra-racial or intra-ethnic ones, and therefore they would not all be similar.

    Let’s not throw around the word “Fascism” as if this was the Thirties and we the Third International. So far as I can tell from actually studying self-proclaimed Fascist movements, and from reading Mosley, there is no coherent ideology behind it, no matter how hard fascists try to show otherwise. What fascists seem to actually share is an emotional mindset; an idea they they, not the Reds, towards whom they have a strong antipathy, are the true revolutionaries, a strong nationalism and an idea that this nationalism should somehow affect internal economic life (how exactly this is to be so varies tremendously), and an idea that the State should somehow (again, there are no sensible details here) integrate all classes for the common good. There was once an attempt to found a Fascist International, and there were a few conferences, but the utter lack of a common ideology, or any willingness of the non-Italians to work under Italian direction, meant that nothing meaningful was done. Interestingly (and obviously, if you know the period) the Nazis were not invited. Despite having a name very reminiscent of Mussolini’s original ideas (“national” as opposed to international socialism), the Nazis seem to have been regarded as loons by the actual (Italian) fascists. Racism was not a significant part of the appeal of any fascist movement, excluding the Nazis.

    Fascism in practice seems to have worked out to mean, in Italy, “whatever Mussolini and his pals want to do”, and elsewhere (particularly in Britain) “Let’s dress up in uniforms and say we want to change this country, like Mussolini did in Italy”. Interestingly both the Italian and British parties were made up of left-wingers who had become disgusted with their local socialist parties. I exclude movements which influenced fascists or were influenced by them, like the Maurrassistes and the Falangists, because there were simply so many, but with the exception of Maurrassisme which had a real ideological framework, most had only a strong anticommunism uniting them. Falangism actually had an economic ideology (vertical syndicalism) but this was watered-down, diluted by the habit of the Falange of absorbing people with radically differing viewpoints, and finally lost all meaning when Franco took power.

    To say that the Establishment co-opted fascism is partly true. Mussolini was no man’s puppet. Neither was Hitler (though I would not call him a fascist). Nevertheless the conservatives and the elite in many cases allied with them because, well, elites always make deals to remain in power. That’s how they stay elite. Franco in Spain actually did co-opt the Falange for his own purposes, but Spain is a whole different story, and books (good ones!) have been written about it.

    To refer to the Japanese as fascist is simply to utter nonsense.

    So who are today’s Fascists in the U.S.? No one. Fuhrerprinzip to some extent attaches to all leaders in a democracy, as does demagogy. The alternative, in a democracy, is anarchy. Corporatism, vertical-syndicalism, and so on have no place in modern American economic discussions. Scientific management of the economy and government use of scientist-advisors to direct the national life (Mosley’s big theme, at least in his book) does, but who cares? Fascism, as in anticommunist revolutionary integralist Mussolini-copycatism, does not exist anymore, except to the extent that parties exist in Italy which fondly remember Mussolini.

    Racialism is alive and active on all political sides.

    On the other hand, “fascism”, as applied to mean “non-leftism” by thirties communists (imagine, even the Anarchists were “FAIcistas”!) is alive and well. Since this term is used, in this sense, and with success, only by communists and their ideological descendants, there is no sense arguing about it.

    Did communists crush fascism? In Britain, no. The war did that. In Italy, no. The king did that, before the Allies deposed him. Elsewhere, was there actually fascism? The Maurassistes were sometimes shot by communists, sometimes jailed, sometimes converted, and sometimes unconverted. The Falange withered away after its defanging by Franco and irrelevance under the King. The Eastern European rightists were in fact suppressed bu communists. The Nazis collapsed after a world war against various foes, one of which had a communist government. Many ex-Nazis did just fine either under dommunism or under whatever other systems they found themselves.

    Catching my breath: yes, American politics are very racialized. No, fascism is not a monster lurking under anyone’s bed. Use of the term outside Italy, in the current day, by non-communists, is a meaningless utterance.

    Sorry for ranting and for much irrelevant half-witted digression.

    To clarify:
    I agree with the article that current American politics are not fascist.
    I disagree with the claim that fascism relies on racial identity as its primary impetus. Ethnic identity? Maybe, with bizarre twists (Mosley doesn't even mention it), but nothing that can't come under old-fashioned nationalism.
    I agree that the Clintonian machine is fundamentally dishonest, and acts mainly to support Clinton's elite backers.

    I add this because, upon reading my comment above, I find I seem to be going on a violent and unjustified tirade against Mr. Lee. It was not my intention to do so.

    Whoa! Now that's what I call a comment! A person could learn a thing or two from you, so please keep posting.

    My own view about the term, " fascism," is that it's become pretty much a garbage can term and can mean many different things. "Fascism" in Germany arose as a counter to the disgusting antics of the violent commies of the time. Any reading of commie lit reveals their utterly consistent use of derogatory terms for anyone considered their enemy, thus "Fascism" became an ultra dirty word and it still carries those connotations today even though few people have much of a clue as to what the word means.

    Nowadays, this rule seems to apply to most political terms, in fact.:


    “When I use a word,' Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, 'it means just what I choose it to mean — “

    Alice in Wonderland
     

    And purposely distorting the meaning of perfectly good words is nothing new.

    [During the war] words had to change their ordinary meaning and to take that which was now given them.

    Reckless audacity came to be considered the courage of a loyal ally; prudent hesitation, specious cowardice; moderation was held to be a cloak for unmanliness; ability to see all sides of a question, inaptness to act on any.

    one place the word is still fashionable and bandied about is in Russia when referring to the Zio-quisling regime in Kyiv. They see the Ukrainians as "fascists" enamored of the 'glorious days' of the Nazi fascists.

    No, fascism is not a monster lurking under anyone’s bed
     
    perhaps not in its original Italian-like form, but we in America (and elsewhere) do suffer a kind of fascist mindset from our nanny state apparatchiks.

    being told as an adult that one must by law use a seat belt while driving "your" car, is a form of insidious fascism if you ask me. By what right does the state treat me like its child and its property?

    Well, the right of the collective of course! If all people are forced to wear their seatbelts, and wear helmets to ride a bicycle for instance, then it will save on medical bills and lost days of work! The collective's interests outweigh the individual's so-called rights.

    It may not be as invidious as goose-stepping to swastikas, but the fascist principles and insidious chipping away at individual rights are the exact same thing.

Nevertheless the conservatives and the elite in many cases allied with them because, well, elites always make deals to remain in power. That's how they stay elite. Franco in Spain actually did co-opt the Falange for his own purposes, but Spain is a whole different story, and books (good ones!) have been written about it.

    To refer to the Japanese as fascist is simply to utter nonsense.

    So who are today's Fascists in the U.S.? No one. Fuhrerprinzip to some extent attaches to all leaders in a democracy, as does demagogy. The alternative, in a democracy, is anarchy. Corporatism, vertical-syndicalism, and so on have no place in modern American economic discussions. Scientific management of the economy and government use of scientist-advisors to direct the national life (Mosley's big theme, at least in his book) does, but who cares? Fascism, as in anticommunist revolutionary integralist Mussolini-copycatism, does not exist anymore, except to the extent that parties exist in Italy which fondly remember Mussolini.

    Racialism is alive and active on all political sides.

    On the other hand, "fascism", as applied to mean "non-leftism" by thirties communists (imagine, even the Anarchists were "FAIcistas"!) is alive and well. Since this term is used, in this sense, and with success, only by communists and their ideological descendants, there is no sense arguing about it.

    Did communists crush fascism? In Britain, no. The war did that. In Italy, no. The king did that, before the Allies deposed him. Elsewhere, was there actually fascism? The Maurassistes were sometimes shot by communists, sometimes jailed, sometimes converted, and sometimes unconverted. The Falange withered away after its defanging by Franco and irrelevance under the King. The Eastern European rightists were in fact suppressed bu communists. The Nazis collapsed after a world war against various foes, one of which had a communist government. Many ex-Nazis did just fine either under dommunism or under whatever other systems they found themselves.

    Catching my breath: yes, American politics are very racialized. No, fascism is not a monster lurking under anyone's bed. Use of the term outside Italy, in the current day, by non-communists, is a meaningless utterance.

    Sorry for ranting and for much irrelevant half-witted digression.

    To clarify:
    I agree with the article that current American politics are not fascist.
    I disagree with the claim that fascism relies on racial identity as its primary impetus. Ethnic identity? Maybe, with bizarre twists (Mosley doesn’t even mention it), but nothing that can’t come under old-fashioned nationalism.
    I agree that the Clintonian machine is fundamentally dishonest, and acts mainly to support Clinton’s elite backers.

    I add this because, upon reading my comment above, I find I seem to be going on a violent and unjustified tirade against Mr. Lee. It was not my intention to do so.

    liberals don’t crush fascism.

    In between there’s a great big war, where communists crush fascism.
     
    Fascism is just another branch of socialism, and sometimes called corporatism. nationalism has nothing to do with racism and everything to do with one's nation. Lee refuses to recognize this truth because he'd rather throw around the worn out label of "racism". Anyone who has been to asia knows they are the most racist people in the world. Even more racist than blacks. Many of them are also nationalists. I don't have a problem with either one as I am fine keeping the races separate and our nationalities intact. I do have a problem when ideologists like Lee hide behind lies to try and promote and or defend their own BS.

    Look at the history of Asia and you will find plenty of purges similar to what previous generations of amerikans did to the indians. You will find this in any culture of place yo want to look. We are not alone in this, but Lee would like to try and use that lie against us to prove his point. But the real point is that Lee is a lying revisionist just like all the rest of the left.

    Your leftist lies no longer have any power or sway, Lee. So go pound sand, and then go back to asia. This is our country and fuck you if you don' like it.

    "democratic outcomes lack inherent legitimacy"

    Fascism isn't based on electoral democracy, so where are the democratic outcomes to lack legitimacy in the first place? Legitimacy is an anthropological term (not a political one), meaning acceptance of those who rule over you. What determines your acceptance is mediated by the reigning social narrative - Is he of the royal line? Was he elected in a free and fair ballot? Is he a philosopher king?

    " It succeeds when fascists are co-opted by capitalists"

    Lee shows his socialist credentials here While promoting corporate interest above all else is a great failing of neoliberalism, obviously corporations are required. The point of fascist theory is to dictate to them that their activities must ultimately benefit the nation, and not exclusively themselves. Unless you are a unvarnished Marxist, there was really not all that much wrong with Il Duce's economic policy. He was roundly praised in the Anglo press at the time, and through our own foolishness we alienated him, sending him into Hitler's arms.

    Arguably the totalitarian proclivities of fascism were to its discredit, but we on the right must identity the good things about the system and defend them from nutty screeds like this, or else our nationalist aspirations will be summarily dismissed because muh fashism

  14. I’m always amazed at how liberals throw the “racism” word around. It’s as if, in their cloistered lives, they’ve never actually met a racist. If Lee thinks the repubs, or a middle-of-the-roader like Trump are racists, he’s unqualified to write about racial issues. A “racist” is someone who hates races other than his own and tries to do them harm. The black rioters of the past few months would fit into this mold. Trump is someone who simply wants to end illegal immigration, which would help blacks more than any other public policy. If wanting to control one’s borders makes one a racist, than every people on earth, except for Western Euros and American liberals, is racist.

  20. By the time I’d finished reading the comments, I’d forgotten the essay, given that it was eminently forgettable.

    DJT is responding to the racial issue raised incessantly since the 1960s to the detriment of the society as a whole, which was never intended to be a multi-racial polyglot urban coalition lording it over the one-time majority of people of NW European descent who created the society’s cultural norms as well as most everything else. If no electoral response is forthcoming from this decreasing demographic segment of society, then it has become suicidal.

    If people of non-European descent are unhappy with Mr T they are free to vote for the other candidate of NW European descent, the traitorous HRC. Hopefully, non-NW-European descended immigrants will prefer assimilation into the old school NW-E societal norms (that are all that keep the society from devolving into an amorphous agglomerate of separate special interests) to those that would recreate the disorder and poverty from which they or their ancestors fled in the first place.

  21. Dear Mr. Lee,

    you seem to believe that you write from a standpoint “beyond the races”. This is a widespread liberal pretension, but in your case I can’t see that it works well.

    First, you express no positive idea how a state “beyond the races” shall work. You might support Steve Sailer’s concept of “citizenism”, but then why don’t you do it?

    Secondly, when strata of migrants are heaped on each other in a country, these strata will always be “strange” to each other in the beginning. The strata will at first organize themselves along lines of race or ethny, and that’s the normal way of life. It cannot be avoided. It can indeed be transformed, but only if the chain of migrations is diminished for a while (like it was before 1965) and migrants gain the time needed for adjusting.

    Your opinion pieces would be more convincing, if you reflected your double role as a representant of Chinese group interests and as a political commentator who appeals to a general public with general arguments. You are welcome in both roles, but you should separate them.

    Let's not throw around the word "Fascism" as if this was the Thirties and we the Third International. So far as I can tell from actually studying self-proclaimed Fascist movements, and from reading Mosley, there is no coherent ideology behind it, no matter how hard fascists try to show otherwise. What fascists seem to actually share is an emotional mindset; an idea they they, not the Reds, towards whom they have a strong antipathy, are the true revolutionaries, a strong nationalism and an idea that this nationalism should somehow affect internal economic life (how exactly this is to be so varies tremendously), and an idea that the State should somehow (again, there are no sensible details here) integrate all classes for the common good. There was once an attempt to found a Fascist International, and there were a few conferences, but the utter lack of a common ideology, or any willingness of the non-Italians to work under Italian direction, meant that nothing meaningful was done. Interestingly (and obviously, if you know the period) the Nazis were not invited. Despite having a name very reminiscent of Mussolini's original ideas ("national" as opposed to international socialism), the Nazis seem to have been regarded as loons by the actual (Italian) fascists. Racism was not a significant part of the appeal of any fascist movement, excluding the Nazis.

    Fascism in practice seems to have worked out to mean, in Italy, "whatever Mussolini and his pals want to do", and elsewhere (particularly in Britain) "Let's dress up in uniforms and say we want to change this country, like Mussolini did in Italy". Interestingly both the Italian and British parties were made up of left-wingers who had become disgusted with their local socialist parties. I exclude movements which influenced fascists or were influenced by them, like the Maurrassistes and the Falangists, because there were simply so many, but with the exception of Maurrassisme which had a real ideological framework, most had only a strong anticommunism uniting them. Falangism actually had an economic ideology (vertical syndicalism) but this was watered-down, diluted by the habit of the Falange of absorbing people with radically differing viewpoints, and finally lost all meaning when Franco took power.

    To say that the Establishment co-opted fascism is partly true. Mussolini was no man's puppet. Neither was Hitler (though I would not call him a fascist). Nevertheless the conservatives and the elite in many cases allied with them because, well, elites always make deals to remain in power. That's how they stay elite. Franco in Spain actually did co-opt the Falange for his own purposes, but Spain is a whole different story, and books (good ones!) have been written about it.

    Whoa! Now that’s what I call a comment! A person could learn a thing or two from you, so please keep posting.

    My own view about the term, ” fascism,” is that it’s become pretty much a garbage can term and can mean many different things. “Fascism” in Germany arose as a counter to the disgusting antics of the violent commies of the time. Any reading of commie lit reveals their utterly consistent use of derogatory terms for anyone considered their enemy, thus “Fascism” became an ultra dirty word and it still carries those connotations today even though few people have much of a clue as to what the word means.

    Nowadays, this rule seems to apply to most political terms, in fact.:

    “When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean — “

    Alice in Wonderland

    And purposely distorting the meaning of perfectly good words is nothing new.

    [During the war] words had to change their ordinary meaning and to take that which was now given them.

    Reckless audacity came to be considered the courage of a loyal ally; prudent hesitation, specious cowardice; moderation was held to be a cloak for unmanliness; ability to see all sides of a question, inaptness to act on any.

  26. FASCISM just like TERRORISM is defined by one by his own mindset.

    In a letter to the editor of the Jew York times, on December 4, 1948, Jewish philosopher Einstein warned that state of Israel had begun to slide towards FASCISM.

    “Among the most disturbing political phenomena of our times is the emergence in the newly created state of Israel of the “Freedom Party” (Tnuat Haherut), a political party closely akin in its organization, methods, political philosophy and social appeal to the Nazi and Fascist parties. It was formed out of the membership and following of the former Irgun Zvai Leumi, a terrorist, right-wing, chauvinist organization in Palestine,” wrote Einstein.

    On May 20, 2016, Ehud Barak, a war criminal and ex-prime minister of the Zionist entity acknowledged that “his country is infected by the seeds of fascism.”

    United States being an Israeli colony is also ruled by FASCIST elites.

  27. By placing the focus of the campaign on identity politics and Trump’s actual and putative crimes against various identity groups, the Clinton campaign has successfully obscured what I consider to be its fundamental identity as a vehicle for neoliberal globalists keen to preserve and employ the United States as a welcoming environment and supreme vehicle for supra-sovereign business interests.

    But there is something positive here, since the “obscured” aspect is fast disappearing. Thanks to the Republican candidate’s campaign, any sentient person can now see that the MSM is not “Fair and Balanced”, that the Establishment controls the machinery of both parties and that the 0,1% are (almost) entirely against him.

    Out of the top 20 billionaires in the US, 19 support Clinton, which means that it isn’t entirely a race thing. 40% of them are Jewish (which is a lot) but equally 60% are Gentiles – so they all want Pay for Play to keep the highly profitable tariff free outsourcing game going. The mass immigration issue is also OK since it gives Hillary a bigger voting block.

    The article is surely right. Neoliberal Globalization has given 120.000 families (0,1%) the same wealth as the lower 90% of the US population combined (source: David Stockman), which is extreme inequality by any standards – and no-one is going to vote for the interests of the 0,1%, so THEY HAVE TO HAVE HILLARY AND PAY FOR PLAY = Hillary’s lavishly funded False Flag SJW/ identity politics campaign.

    By placing the focus of the campaign on identity politics and Trump’s actual and putative crimes against various identity groups, the Clinton campaign has successfully obscured what I consider to be its fundamental identity as a vehicle for neoliberal globalists keen to preserve and employ the United States as a welcoming environment and supreme vehicle for supra-sovereign business interests.
     
    But there is something positive here, since the "obscured" aspect is fast disappearing. Thanks to the Republican candidate's campaign, any sentient person can now see that the MSM is not "Fair and Balanced", that the Establishment controls the machinery of both parties and that the 0,1% are (almost) entirely against him.

    Out of the top 20 billionaires in the US, 19 support Clinton, which means that it isn't entirely a race thing. 40% of them are Jewish (which is a lot) but equally 60% are Gentiles - so they all want Pay for Play to keep the highly profitable tariff free outsourcing game going. The mass immigration issue is also OK since it gives Hillary a bigger voting block.

    The article is surely right. Neoliberal Globalization has given 120.000 families (0,1%) the same wealth as the lower 90% of the US population combined (source: David Stockman), which is extreme inequality by any standards - and no-one is going to vote for the interests of the 0,1%, so THEY HAVE TO HAVE HILLARY AND PAY FOR PLAY = Hillary's lavishly funded False Flag SJW/ identity politics campaign.

    I think the main point is that they know that Hillary will provide it but Trump probably won't.

    True. If Mr. Lee had said it like that, instead of painting all Americans with the ever-ready broad brush of “racism”, I would give him credit for it. It looks like you get the credit this time around.

    Let's not throw around the word "Fascism" as if this was the Thirties and we the Third International. So far as I can tell from actually studying self-proclaimed Fascist movements, and from reading Mosley, there is no coherent ideology behind it, no matter how hard fascists try to show otherwise. What fascists seem to actually share is an emotional mindset; an idea they they, not the Reds, towards whom they have a strong antipathy, are the true revolutionaries, a strong nationalism and an idea that this nationalism should somehow affect internal economic life (how exactly this is to be so varies tremendously), and an idea that the State should somehow (again, there are no sensible details here) integrate all classes for the common good. There was once an attempt to found a Fascist International, and there were a few conferences, but the utter lack of a common ideology, or any willingness of the non-Italians to work under Italian direction, meant that nothing meaningful was done. Interestingly (and obviously, if you know the period) the Nazis were not invited. Despite having a name very reminiscent of Mussolini's original ideas ("national" as opposed to international socialism), the Nazis seem to have been regarded as loons by the actual (Italian) fascists. Racism was not a significant part of the appeal of any fascist movement, excluding the Nazis.

    Fascism in practice seems to have worked out to mean, in Italy, "whatever Mussolini and his pals want to do", and elsewhere (particularly in Britain) "Let's dress up in uniforms and say we want to change this country, like Mussolini did in Italy". Interestingly both the Italian and British parties were made up of left-wingers who had become disgusted with their local socialist parties. I exclude movements which influenced fascists or were influenced by them, like the Maurrassistes and the Falangists, because there were simply so many, but with the exception of Maurrassisme which had a real ideological framework, most had only a strong anticommunism uniting them. Falangism actually had an economic ideology (vertical syndicalism) but this was watered-down, diluted by the habit of the Falange of absorbing people with radically differing viewpoints, and finally lost all meaning when Franco took power.

    To say that the Establishment co-opted fascism is partly true. Mussolini was no man's puppet. Neither was Hitler (though I would not call him a fascist). Nevertheless the conservatives and the elite in many cases allied with them because, well, elites always make deals to remain in power. That's how they stay elite. Franco in Spain actually did co-opt the Falange for his own purposes, but Spain is a whole different story, and books (good ones!) have been written about it.

    To refer to the Japanese as fascist is simply to utter nonsense.

    So who are today's Fascists in the U.S.? No one. Fuhrerprinzip to some extent attaches to all leaders in a democracy, as does demagogy. The alternative, in a democracy, is anarchy. Corporatism, vertical-syndicalism, and so on have no place in modern American economic discussions. Scientific management of the economy and government use of scientist-advisors to direct the national life (Mosley's big theme, at least in his book) does, but who cares? Fascism, as in anticommunist revolutionary integralist Mussolini-copycatism, does not exist anymore, except to the extent that parties exist in Italy which fondly remember Mussolini.

    Racialism is alive and active on all political sides.

    On the other hand, "fascism", as applied to mean "non-leftism" by thirties communists (imagine, even the Anarchists were "FAIcistas"!) is alive and well. Since this term is used, in this sense, and with success, only by communists and their ideological descendants, there is no sense arguing about it.

    Did communists crush fascism? In Britain, no. The war did that. In Italy, no. The king did that, before the Allies deposed him. Elsewhere, was there actually fascism? The Maurassistes were sometimes shot by communists, sometimes jailed, sometimes converted, and sometimes unconverted. The Falange withered away after its defanging by Franco and irrelevance under the King. The Eastern European rightists were in fact suppressed bu communists. The Nazis collapsed after a world war against various foes, one of which had a communist government. Many ex-Nazis did just fine either under dommunism or under whatever other systems they found themselves.

    Catching my breath: yes, American politics are very racialized. No, fascism is not a monster lurking under anyone's bed. Use of the term outside Italy, in the current day, by non-communists, is a meaningless utterance.

    Sorry for ranting and for much irrelevant half-witted digression.

    interesting

    Use of the term outside Italy, in the current day, by non-communists, is a meaningless utterance.

    one place the word is still fashionable and bandied about is in Russia when referring to the Zio-quisling regime in Kyiv. They see the Ukrainians as “fascists” enamored of the ‘glorious days’ of the Nazi fascists.

    No, fascism is not a monster lurking under anyone’s bed

    perhaps not in its original Italian-like form, but we in America (and elsewhere) do suffer a kind of fascist mindset from our nanny state apparatchiks.

    being told as an adult that one must by law use a seat belt while driving “your” car, is a form of insidious fascism if you ask me. By what right does the state treat me like its child and its property?

    Well, the right of the collective of course! If all people are forced to wear their seatbelts, and wear helmets to ride a bicycle for instance, then it will save on medical bills and lost days of work! The collective’s interests outweigh the individual’s so-called rights.

    It may not be as invidious as goose-stepping to swastikas, but the fascist principles and insidious chipping away at individual rights are the exact same thing.

  38. The fundamental problem with blacks in a white society is the average IQ difference of about 15 points between the two groups as well as the much greater tendency of blacks toward violent behavior. Individuals of Northeast Asian descent have done very well in the US. US “racism” does not seem to have affected them much. The difference is due to the fact that Northeast Asians are the product of an evolutionary past that makes them highly suitable for an advanced society. They are characterized by a high level of intelligence and a low tendency to violent behavior. Blacks have a very different evolutionary history. Sub-Saharan Africans have lagged behind the rest of humanity since the Mousterian 50,000 years ago.

    Incidentally blacks while poorly compatible with white civilizations are even less compatible with societies created by Northeast Asians.

    Most outside observers over the centuries - Arab, European and Chinese - have noticed the low degree of work effort by Sub-Saharan Africans. The generally abundant resources available there have not required the same effort at survival as was necessary in much of the Eurasian continent so selection for work effort was not as strong as in many other areas of the Earth.

    However although that is a problem I think that the high tendency to violence and lower degree of intelligence is probably more significant. The homicide rate in NYC among blacks is about 60 times the white rate and in Chicago it is about 90 times the white rate. The US Virgin Islands has one of the highest homicide rates in the world. All this is in startling contrast to China where despite many enormous and crowded cities and despite very high levels of poverty by US standards, homicide rates are extremely low. In places like Chicago or New Orleans black homicide rates exceed those found in very large Chinese cities by about two orders of magnitude.

    I'm always amazed at how liberals throw the "racism" word around. It's as if, in their cloistered lives, they've never actually met a racist. If Lee thinks the repubs, or a middle-of-the-roader like Trump are racists, he's unqualified to write about racial issues. A "racist" is someone who hates races other than his own and tries to do them harm. The black rioters of the past few months would fit into this mold. Trump is someone who simply wants to end illegal immigration, which would help blacks more than any other public policy. If wanting to control one's borders makes one a racist, than every people on earth, except for Western Euros and American liberals, is racist.

    He’s obviously unqualified to write on any subject. Honesty isn’t a requirement for writing but pundits should have a passing familiarity with the concept.

    In between there’s a great big war, where communists crush fascism.
     
    The United States defeated fascism, not communism/"communists".

    This, from a Weste-centered viewpoint.
    But even in the East, the Japanese would have crushed any Korean/Chinese/other opposition without much trouble, were it not for the USA.
    And I don't think communists in Laos/Cambodia/Vietnam/China took power by defeating "fascism", though I know very little of that.

    But even in the East, the Japanese would have crushed any Korean/Chinese/other opposition without much trouble, were it not for the USA.

    Your assertion is absolutely incorrect.

    Japan’s incursions into China began soon after WWI. Aided by a couple of warlords, and later, division between the nationalists and communists, they managed to set up two very odd states, one in the inner Mongolia of now, and one in Manchuria (lasted a little longer).

    The big project was conquering China; part of the theory, ironically, was that as linguistically and vaguely racially related, Japan was the natural successor to the Mongols and Manchu to run the place. They got nowhere on that, despite the Nationalists having a shortage of ammunition and bad weapons, and the Communists deciding to play neutral much of the time (to their discredit).

    Where they briefly held territory, they behaved so badly that nobody supported them.

    By the time of the Pearl Harbour attack, nowhere was really under control.

    US intervention made no difference to the result in China, except to provide the Nationalists passage to Taiwan, where they were not especially popular to the native and earlier ethnic-Chinese immigrants while Taiwan was a Japanese colony.

    Slaughters of the latter by the former are well known.

Japan was so far ahead in industrialisation and armaments and the money to pay helpful warlords that only very substantial assistance by way of providing arms and hindering Japan by embargo, boycott and sanctions, at least, could have prevented it prevailing given its proven ruthlessness in the 1930s.

    “And for anybody who doesn’t believe the US government does not already engage in intensive “extreme” vetting and targeting of all Muslims immigrants, especially those from targeted countries, not only to identify potential security risks but to groom potential intelligence assets, I got the Brooklyn Bridge to sell you right here:”

    They want to, but when a young guy shows up with no ID and says he’s Amad Amad from Syria, that’s all they have for vetting. They can run his fingerprints but unless he was once arrested in a modern nation, nothing will appear in their databases. We have no access to computer databases in Syria nor most these other nations to check birth records, school records, military and criminal data. We admit thousands of such “refugees” each month with nothing more than their tale of hardship, with many men in their 20s and 30s claiming they are 17-years old to exploit the “child refugee” law. Recall the recent story of ICE accidentally granting citizenship to thousands who had criminal convictions IN THE USA.!

    ICE cannot keep up with a couple million a year legally immigrating to the USA. Yet some think we should grant amnesty to the 20-50 million foreigners living illegally among us. It would take years and billions more dollars and thousands more ICE personal to vet all these invaders, while millions more flood across for their amnesty, all claiming they feared for their life back home and have lived in the USA for years. Baltimore has a higher crime rate than any Central American nation. We have millions of American retirees living in these “war zones.” Why?

    Okay, I’m ranting, but no, we don’t do extreme vetting because we can’t. Yes, the FBI targets Muslim immigrants but the new arrivals vastly outnumber FBI counter-terrorism agents. In that recent Muslim shooter case, his dad had reported him as dangerous to the FBI, and nothing was done! No one talks about one thing that can be done. Pass a law to ban non US citizens in the USA from purchasing or owning firearms.

    Left-wing sinophiles like Mr. Lee have no concern for what becomes of Japan or Korea. On the other hand, in all of the articles of his that I have read, I have found not even a single hint of criticism of China. I find his complete lack of introspection of his own biases simply incredible. I'm not really sure in what way he is any different than every other mainstream globalist who is in the pocket of China. He is simply spilling propaganda that favors his own interests, and his interests clearly do not lie with the American people.

  53. From the article:

    Real fascism, in theory, is a rather interesting and nasty beast. In my opinion, it turns bolshevism on its head by using race or ethnic identity instead of class identity as the supreme, mobilizing force in national life.

    Again, for the thousandth time, when Mussolini formed the fascist movement (around 1919) he said, it had , “no doctrinal foundation.” The fasci itself was emblematic of unity, and the basis of that unity was whatever the dictator in charge decided it would be. This notion that fascism is an offshoot of racism is ignorance and social doxa. Yes, it’s rooted in totalitarianism and extremist radical nationalism, but not racial theory. The Italians persecuted Jews in WW2 largely at the insistence of the Nazis (who did use racial identity as a basis of unity…as did the Japs, who were also fascist.) For Italians, the unifying element was largely a common heritage of the Roman Empire…or something.

    Because of this lack of doctrine, fascism is much harder to define than Communism, which is loaded with doctrine. Scholars acknowledge this, so when authors go back and forth between fascism and Communism as if they are equally concrete concepts or terms, they display their historical ignorance. Lee’s definition is right out of Wikipedia. Many current theocracies qualify as fascist because religion (taken to a radical extreme) is the unifying element, and race and ethnicity have little to do with it.

    In fact, very few countries have been free of vague elements of fascism in even their moderate public discourse. Whenever Obama or Bush or whoever talk about unity among their countrymen, there are echos of Mussolini in there somewhere.

    This is not entirely accurate, in my opinion. Germany under Hitler was partly fascist, especially in southern Germany, which was/is predominately Roman Catholic.

    The Catholic connection/link in regards to/with Fascism is very important to keep in mind.

    The simple fact, that Trump is Protestant, makes it highly unlikely, that he has fascist tendencies/leanings, since the great majority of fascist dictatorships were Catholic, with a few exceptions:

    Most right-wing regimes kept strong ties with local Churches (usually the Roman Catholic ones since most of those regimes happened in Catholic countries).

    Catholics are not voting Trump: http://www.npr.org/2016/09/01/492203088/church-going-catholics-reject-trump-expected-to-support-clinton


    The U.S. is not fascist, yet, since it is not majority Catholic, yet. But that could change in the future, if the Church gets its way in regards to birth control and more immigration from Catholic regions/countries into the U.S., e.g. Central and South America, Sub-Saharan Africa, Philippines, Haiti, etc.:
    Catholic Church's Position on Immigration Reform
    http://www.usccb.org/issues-and-action/human-life-and-dignity/immigration/churchteachingonimmigrationreform.cfm

    Most of this unauthorized flow comes from Mexico, a nation struggling with severe poverty, where it is often impossible for many to earn a living wage and meet the basic needs of their families.
     
    and

    What explains the resilience of the Catholic Church in the face of declining membership over a lifetime? New immigrants arriving in the United States—many Catholics from Latin America—have helped offset the decline in religious affiliation among the U.S.-born population. Figure 1 shows the parallel growth in the U.S. Catholic and Latino population between 1970 and 2000. [...] Although birth data are not available by religion, it is likely that the relatively high fertility rates among Latino women have also contributed to the recent growth of the U.S. Catholic population—especially for younger age groups.

    Remember, President Kennedy intensified the U.S. engagement in Vietnam to help out a fellow Roman Catholic:

    A devout Roman Catholic, Diệm was fervently anti-communist, nationalist, and socially conservative. Historian Luu Doan Huynh notes that "Diệm represented narrow and extremist nationalism coupled with autocracy and nepotism."[141] The majority of Vietnamese people were Buddhist, and were alarmed by actions such as Diệm's dedication of the country to the Virgin Mary.

    The E.U. is majority Catholic after BREXIT, so the chances, that it could turn truly fascist/authoritarian, now are higher than they were before, in my opinion:

    According to new polls about religiosity in the European Union in 2012 by Eurobarometer, Christianity is the largest religion in the European Union, accounting for 72% of the EU population.[209] Catholics are the largest Christian group, accounting for 48% of the EU population, while Protestants make up 12%, Eastern Orthodox make up 8% and other Christians make up 4%.[214]

    The 24th edition of Etymologisches Wörterbuch der deutschen Sprache (2002) says the word Nazi was favored in southern Germany (supposedly from c. 1924) among opponents of National Socialism because the nickname Nazi, Naczi (from the masc. proper name Ignatz, German form of Ignatius) was used colloquially to mean "a foolish person, clumsy or awkward person." Ignatz was a popular name in Catholic Austria, and according to one source in World War I Nazi was a generic name in the German Empire for the soldiers of Austria-Hungary.

    FASCISM just like TERRORISM is defined by one by his own mindset.

    In a letter to the editor of the Jew York times, on December 4, 1948, Jewish philosopher Einstein warned that state of Israel had begun to slide towards FASCISM.

    "Among the most disturbing political phenomena of our times is the emergence in the newly created state of Israel of the "Freedom Party" (Tnuat Haherut), a political party closely akin in its organization, methods, political philosophy and social appeal to the Nazi and Fascist parties. It was formed out of the membership and following of the former Irgun Zvai Leumi, a terrorist, right-wing, chauvinist organization in Palestine," wrote Einstein.

    On May 20, 2016, Ehud Barak, a war criminal and ex-prime minister of the Zionist entity acknowledged that "his country is infected by the seeds of fascism."

    United States being an Israeli colony is also ruled by FASCIST elites.

    This is not entirely accurate, in my opinion. Germany under Hitler was partly fascist, especially in southern Germany, which was/is predominately Roman Catholic.

    The Catholic connection/link in regards to/with Fascism is very important to keep in mind.

    The simple fact, that Trump is Protestant, makes it highly unlikely, that he has fascist tendencies/leanings, since the great majority of fascist dictatorships were Catholic, with a few exceptions:

    Most right-wing regimes kept strong ties with local Churches (usually the Roman Catholic ones since most of those regimes happened in Catholic countries).

    This was most probably Hitler just giving lip service and token gestures to his most ardent and radical, non-Catholic/anti-Christian supporters in the party; to keep them happy and loyal to him. At the same time, he knew, that he needed popular Catholic support to stay in power:


    An initially mainly sporadic persecution of the Catholic Church in Germany followed the Nazi takeover. Hitler was hostile to the Catholic Church, but for political reasons, was prepared to restrain his anticlericalism and did not allow himself to be drawn into attacking the Church publicly as other Nazis would have liked him to do.[24] Kershaw wrote that, following the appointment of Hitler as Chancellor by President von Hindenberg, the Vatican was anxious to reach agreement with the new government, despite "continuing molestation of Catholic clergy, and other outrages committed by Nazi radicals against the Church and its organisations".[25]
     
    - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reichskonkordat#Nazis_take_power

    While Bormann's push to force the closure of theological departments at Reich universities was unsuccessful, he was able to reduce the amount of religious instruction provided in public schools to two hours per week and mandated the removal of crucifixes from classrooms.[61]
    [...]
    In 1941 the Catholic Bishop of Münster, August von Galen, publicly protested against this persecution and against Action T4, the Nazi non-voluntary euthanasia programme under which the mentally ill, physically deformed, and incurably sick were to be killed. In a series of sermons that received international attention, he criticised the programme as illegal and immoral. His sermons led to a widespread protest movement among church leaders, the strongest protest against a Nazi policy up until that point. Bormann and others called for Galen to be hanged, but Hitler and Goebbels concluded that Galen's death would only be viewed as a martyrdom and lead to further unrest. Hitler decided to deal with the issue when the war was over.[65]

    I find no information about who Mr. Lee is anywhere on the Unz site. That's a shame. Is Peter Lee a pseudonym? If so, couldn't Mr. Unz, in the interests of honest communication, tell us which of his writers are using their real name and which aren't -- and why? I understand that not everyone is brave enough to write under his real name, but at least we could be informed by the site's organizer as to which names are real and which aren't. ALSO, clicking on the links to articles about Chinese Exclusion Act and another subject yields: Sorry, that page is no longer available.

    I think i read somewhere that Peter Lee was of Korean background and a photograph above an article with that name for author shows the face of a man with at least some East Asian anceatry but the same or another article refers to”Peter Lee” as a pen name. I don’t see him as a representative of Chinese interests as one commenter suggested, though that may be correct for all I know).

    Use of the term outside Italy, in the current day, by non-communists, is a meaningless utterance.
     
    one place the word is still fashionable and bandied about is in Russia when referring to the Zio-quisling regime in Kyiv. They see the Ukrainians as "fascists" enamored of the 'glorious days' of the Nazi fascists.

    No, fascism is not a monster lurking under anyone’s bed
     
    perhaps not in its original Italian-like form, but we in America (and elsewhere) do suffer a kind of fascist mindset from our nanny state apparatchiks.

    being told as an adult that one must by law use a seat belt while driving "your" car, is a form of insidious fascism if you ask me. By what right does the state treat me like its child and its property?

    Well, the right of the collective of course! If all people are forced to wear their seatbelts, and wear helmets to ride a bicycle for instance, then it will save on medical bills and lost days of work! The collective's interests outweigh the individual's so-called rights.

    It may not be as invidious as goose-stepping to swastikas, but the fascist principles and insidious chipping away at individual rights are the exact same thing.

    No, it is common sense by people who in the end don’t let themselves become obsessively and inextricably tied up in abstractions. After pausing – maybe for a long time- and maybe seeing how sucha restriction on. liberty has worked out elsewhere sensible people see that the benefits greatly outweigh any theoretical reduction in individual freedom and add it to a long list of qualifications on simply stated principles tha we accept. Besides, when the state builds roads suited to modern motor cars may it not lay down the conditions on which they are used and demand that you dkn’t risk adding to the cost of roads by injuring yoursdl on them in a way that costs thd taxpayer money?

    that 'we' accept.. or that you accept?

    I''l try to state this very succinctly, I own myself.

    completely and absolutely with zero caveats

    no one has any rights to tell me how to behave or what to do so long as I'm not harming them or their property. OK?

    my body and soul are mine to do with as I please. Period. If you don't understand that, then you have zero understanding of the principles of human liberty.

    risk adding to the cost of roads by injuring yoursdl on them in a way that costs thd taxpayer money?
     
    I never asked anyone (taxpayer or otherwise) to pay for any injuries of mine. If I had, then that'd be different. But no one has a right to go around claiming that because they're socialists or communists or fascists, and belive in forcing others to their will for the 'common good', that they have a right to tell me that I have to wear a helmet or seatbelt or foam suit just in case I might hurt myself, and harm the public good. Such a mentality is a fascist mentality.

    People who value freedom over the common good, are willing to accept the risks that freedom entails. Others who value the 'common good' over freedom, believe that they know better, not just for themselves, but for all others too.

    Lots of them around these days.

    But even in the East, the Japanese would have crushed any Korean/Chinese/other opposition without much trouble, were it not for the USA.
     
    Your assertion is absolutely incorrect.

    Japan's incursions into China began soon after WWI. Aided by a couple of warlords, and later, division between the nationalists and communists, they managed to set up two very odd states, one in the inner Mongolia of now, and one in Manchuria (lasted a little longer).

    The big project was conquering China; part of the theory, ironically, was that as linguistically and vaguely racially related, Japan was the natural successor to the Mongols and Manchu to run the place. They got nowhere on that, despite the Nationalists having a shortage of ammunition and bad weapons, and the Communists deciding to play neutral much of the time (to their discredit).

    Where they briefly held territory, they behaved so badly that nobody supported them.

    By the time of the Pearl Harbour attack, nowhere was really under control.

    US intervention made no difference to the result in China, except to provide the Nationalists passage to Taiwan, where they were not especially popular to the native and earlier ethnic-Chinese immigrants while Taiwan was a Japanese colony.

    Slaughters of the latter by the former are well known.

    I also dislike this article from Peter Lee.
    As also an Asian, it is too obsessed with race baiting. Usually find Mr. Lee's writing interesting.

    I wasn’t aware of Japan’s incursions before 1931 but I have some confidence in saying that your assurance that the part played by the USA was unnecessary to liberation if China and Korea was overstated. Japan was so far ahead in industrialisation and armaments and the money to pay helpful warlords that only very substantial assistance by way of providing arms and hindering Japan by embargo, boycott and sanctions, at least, could have prevented it prevailing given its proven ruthlessness in the 1930s.

  82. As to the definition of fascism, I think this is still correct.

    “The word Fascism has now no meaning except in so far as it signifies “something not desirable”…”

    ― George Orwell, Politics and the English Language, 1946

    Also, this seems relevant here as well.

    “When one looks at the all-prevailing schizophrenia of democratic societies, the lies that have to be told for vote-catching purposes, the silence about major issues, the distortions of the press, it is tempting to believe that in totalitarian countries there is less humbug, more facing of the facts. There, at least, the ruling groups are not dependent on popular favour and can utter the truth crudely and brutally. Goering could say ‘Guns before butter’, while his democratic opposite numbers had to wrap the same sentiment up in hundreds of hypocritical words.”

    ― George Orwell, In Front of Your Nose, 1946

    Note that while Orwell is correct about the schizophrenia, the US however is not run democratically, yet the politicians campaign as if it’s so. Maybe they’re trying to soothe their own rudimentary (?vestigial?) consciences?

    Not in direct combat, no. However, Japan did have to divert much of their military resources (including practically all of their naval resources) towards fighting the US and the other allies. Once the IJN was effectively demolished and Japan was largely cut off from the rest of the world by submarine blockade, their ability to provide any meaningful logistical support to the troops in mainland Asia had been drastically reduced.

    I don't remember much about The Last Emperor except enjoying it.

    I am sure you do know what you are talking about but it still doesn't mean you have substantiated your overststatement. #89 extends my point about logistics (in the broadest possible sense).

    Without carrying the thought too far into possible examples of change it is surely possible to make a case that the fracking revolution has made US interest in ME oil no longer a *national* interest even if some US corporations might make less money.

    Wiz,

    I know of what I speak, the decisive move in China was the Soviets arriving in Manchuria after the Soviets had overun most of Germany.

    The Yanks and Brits, and their allies, madly rushed to limit the extent of the Soviet victory there, after Soviet troops fought so hard.

    They weren't much interested in helping in Europe. Still less elsewhere.

    The Americans never did anything decisive in China.

    In Japan, a clear distinction is made between 'Great East Asian War' and 'Pacific War', the former ran for over twenty years, the latter for just over three.

    If you have never seen it, Bertolucci's The Last Emperor is close to factually correct, recommended, and a wonderful movie.

    The Americans never did anything decisive in China.

    Not in direct combat, no. However, Japan did have to divert much of their military resources (including practically all of their naval resources) towards fighting the US and the other allies. Once the IJN was effectively demolished and Japan was largely cut off from the rest of the world by submarine blockade, their ability to provide any meaningful logistical support to the troops in mainland Asia had been drastically reduced.

    Sorry, that was rather egregious. But, really, what is your definition of fascism, besides being Catholic and evil? Totalitarian, yes. But what precisely do you mean? You do know, don't you, that the Nazis and the Church were at loggerheads? So I guess they weren't really fascists after all. Neither, to their surprise, were the BUFs, apparently. And Mussolini must have been receiving communion in secret- maybe he had a secret tunnel from his palace to the Vatican.

    Though, trying to stay serious, we do say "corruptio optimi pessima est"; Graham Greene paraphrases this, somewhat facetiously, as "A Catholic is more capable of evil than anyone", but the point is valid- that is the worst which is a twisting or corruption of the best.

    Pax vobiscum!

    You do know, don’t you, that the Nazis and the Church were at loggerheads?

    This was most probably Hitler just giving lip service and token gestures to his most ardent and radical, non-Catholic/anti-Christian supporters in the party; to keep them happy and loyal to him. At the same time, he knew, that he needed popular Catholic support to stay in power:

    An initially mainly sporadic persecution of the Catholic Church in Germany followed the Nazi takeover. Hitler was hostile to the Catholic Church, but for political reasons, was prepared to restrain his anticlericalism and did not allow himself to be drawn into attacking the Church publicly as other Nazis would have liked him to do.[24] Kershaw wrote that, following the appointment of Hitler as Chancellor by President von Hindenberg, the Vatican was anxious to reach agreement with the new government, despite “continuing molestation of Catholic clergy, and other outrages committed by Nazi radicals against the Church and its organisations”.[25]

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reichskonkordat#Nazis_take_power

    While Bormann’s push to force the closure of theological departments at Reich universities was unsuccessful, he was able to reduce the amount of religious instruction provided in public schools to two hours per week and mandated the removal of crucifixes from classrooms.[61]
    [...]
    In 1941 the Catholic Bishop of Münster, August von Galen, publicly protested against this persecution and against Action T4, the Nazi non-voluntary euthanasia programme under which the mentally ill, physically deformed, and incurably sick were to be killed. In a series of sermons that received international attention, he criticised the programme as illegal and immoral. His sermons led to a widespread protest movement among church leaders, the strongest protest against a Nazi policy up until that point. Bormann and others called for Galen to be hanged, but Hitler and Goebbels concluded that Galen’s death would only be viewed as a martyrdom and lead to further unrest. Hitler decided to deal with the issue when the war was over.[65]

    No, it is common sense by people who in the end don't let themselves become obsessively and inextricably tied up in abstractions. After pausing - maybe for a long time- and maybe seeing how sucha restriction on. liberty has worked out elsewhere sensible people see that the benefits greatly outweigh any theoretical reduction in individual freedom and add it to a long list of qualifications on simply stated principles tha we accept. Besides, when the state builds roads suited to modern motor cars may it not lay down the conditions on which they are used and demand that you dkn't risk adding to the cost of roads by injuring yoursdl on them in a way that costs thd taxpayer money?

    sensible people see that the benefits greatly outweigh any theoretical reduction in individual freedom and add it to a long list of qualifications on simply stated principles tha we accept.

    that ‘we’ accept.. or that you accept?

    I”l try to state this very succinctly, I own myself.

    completely and absolutely with zero caveats

    no one has any rights to tell me how to behave or what to do so long as I’m not harming them or their property. OK?

    my body and soul are mine to do with as I please. Period. If you don’t understand that, then you have zero understanding of the principles of human liberty.

    risk adding to the cost of roads by injuring yoursdl on them in a way that costs thd taxpayer money?

    I never asked anyone (taxpayer or otherwise) to pay for any injuries of mine. If I had, then that’d be different. But no one has a right to go around claiming that because they’re socialists or communists or fascists, and belive in forcing others to their will for the ‘common good’, that they have a right to tell me that I have to wear a helmet or seatbelt or foam suit just in case I might hurt myself, and harm the public good. Such a mentality is a fascist mentality.

    People who value freedom over the common good, are willing to accept the risks that freedom entails. Others who value the ‘common good’ over freedom, believe that they know better, not just for themselves, but for all others too.

    Lots of them around these days.

    The fundamental problem with blacks in a white society is the average IQ difference of about 15 points between the two groups as well as the much greater tendency of blacks toward violent behavior.
     
    No, that's not it. The problem is they're lazy and shiftless.

    Most outside observers over the centuries – Arab, European and Chinese – have noticed the low degree of work effort by Sub-Saharan Africans. The generally abundant resources available there have not required the same effort at survival as was necessary in much of the Eurasian continent so selection for work effort was not as strong as in many other areas of the Earth.

    However although that is a problem I think that the high tendency to violence and lower degree of intelligence is probably more significant. The homicide rate in NYC among blacks is about 60 times the white rate and in Chicago it is about 90 times the white rate. The US Virgin Islands has one of the highest homicide rates in the world. All this is in startling contrast to China where despite many enormous and crowded cities and despite very high levels of poverty by US standards, homicide rates are extremely low. In places like Chicago or New Orleans black homicide rates exceed those found in very large Chinese cities by about two orders of magnitude.

    Identity politics is a form of class identity.

    Protected class groups function as a victim cult, eternal victims of white supremacist Nazi.

    http://www.unk.edu/offices/human_resources/aaeo/hiring_guidelines/identification_of_protected.php

    Identification of Protected Class Groups

    The following five groups are considered “Protected Classes” under various federal laws. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) requires reporting employment information on the first two groups, females and minorities, which are traditionally underutilized.

    1.FEMALES

    2.INDIGENOUS MINORITIES. Groups for whom established patterns of discrimination have been determined to exist (based on self-identification):

    •Black: (not Hispanic origin): All persons having origins in any of the black racial groups of Africa.

    •Hispanic: All persons of Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Central American, or other Spanish culture or origin, regardless of race.

    •American Indian or Alaskan Native: All persons having origins in any of the original peoples of North America, and who maintain cultural identification through tribal affiliation or community recognition.

    •Asian or Pacific Islander: All persons having their origins in any of the original peoples of the Far East, Southeast Asia, the Indian Subcontinent or the Pacific Islands. For example: China, Japan, Korea, the Philippine Islands and Samoa.

    3.INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES: Defined as an individual who has a physical or mental impairment that constitutes a substantial limitation on a major life activity, a person with record of such an impairment, or a person who is perceived as having such an impairment. The law also protects those who are in a relationship or associated with someone with a disability.

    4.VETERANS AND DISABLED VETERANS

    5.PERSONS AGE 40 OR OVER.
