Conservatism-The Opposite of Fascism: Part 1

I recently read an article on Addicting Info. A highly Liberal blog with weak talking points. Nevertheless, I realized that the sheep, I mean readers who follow them, believe the indoctrinated falsity upon which they preach.  The article in which I am speaking about, is one which compared Conservatism, to Fascism, essentially referring to them as one in the same. In the article, the first thing I can see, is the photo shopped cross put into piece’s featured image.  The image itself, is one of Sarah Palin, smiling, wrapped up in an American Flag, holding a cross in her hand. Obviously, in the original image, she does not hold a cross in her hand. 

However, when Liberals argue that Conservatism & Fascism are the same ideology, they often used a quote by Sinclair Lewis, in which Lewis says: “When Fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.” 

So, to fuel the Liberal Stereotype of all Conservatives wear crosses around their necks and wave American Flags every chance they get, and profile everyone else who doesn’t as unpatriotic,  it would need to be necessary for them to edit an original image, even to prove their own agenda. Ethics are silly things away, who could forget MSNBC’s recent gaffe? This week,  I would like to debunk this theory, one day at a time. One article a day. This isn’t a hard myth to debunk. So, let’s start with the first three that come off of Addicting Info’s list, shall we?

1. You are obsessed with national power and pride and believe your country doesn’t have to follow the rules and shouldn’t ever apologize for doing things that are wrong. You think your nation can do whatever it wants.

By all means, I’m pretty sure Conservatives don’t believe that never apologizing for something is a bad thing. We believe that we should not apologize for our foreign policy, that it is a sign of weakness. And launching a tour who’s main purpose is to apologize is a sign of submission to other countries, and not a sign of strength or leadership. By all means, our country should follow international rules, just like any other country.

2. You believe in the rule of the few, election rigging, political decisions being made by a select group of officials behind closed doors, embrace the informal and unregulated exercise of political power, arbitrary deprivation of civil liberties, and little tolerance for meaningful opposition.

Holy crap. This is like reading recent news of The Obama Administration. Remember when the healthcare overhaul was all done behind close doors? I do. Remember the election fraud of Acorn? As for group of select few making the decisions for many, what about George Soros, pulling the strings behind President Obama? Or Harry Reid & Pelosi? Remember how everything functioned around them when they held the ‘super majority?’ Or what about when President Obama released the executive order banning protest? (See H.R. 347) Also, unregulated exercise of political power? Let’s look back to the ‘Dream Act’ shall we? That was where the President just ‘went around’ Congress.

Don’t even get me started on ‘tittle tolerance for meaningful opposition.’


3. You believe in survival of the fittest, an every man for himself mentality that causes you to believe that poor people and sick people are weak and must be punished. You think rich people are strong because they are wealthy and that they should rule us. You also believe your race is superior to all others.

Race superior to all others, huh? Only Liberals can turn any, and I do mean, any argument into a race issue. Poor people and sick people shouldn’t be punished just because they are poor and sick, and anyone would have lots of trouble trying to find a conservative who actually believes that crap. Answer to your problems? Capitalism, my friends. Free enterprise is the only thing to bring up the poor into the middle class. Also, if we believe Rich People rule, then tell me about George Soros again, I doubt he rules at all. As far as sick people go, I don’t believe they should be punished because they are sick. I believe they should be treated. And forcing them to buy healthcare is not an answer.


I’ll be doing 4 of these a day until I reach number 18. All from the original addictinginfo.com piece. Stay tuned, and feel free to tweet any suggestions to me! @Tanner_WB

  1. Nowhere in the article does it compare conservatives to fascists. The only mention of a comparison is the Tea Party to fascists. Maybe if you actually paid attention to what you were reading, you’d realize those are all traits of fascists, which the article is about, instead of taking one comment at the end comparing a portion of the republican party to fascists.
