Kindred Spirits

Propaganda Masters

When Conservatives hit a Left-Wing nerve, you can be sure they will use their stronghold on the media, academia, and big-tech, to thwart or spin the narrative. They use psychopathic defense mechanisms to cover their involvement, deny any wrongdoing, and point the finger at a shiny thing over yonder to distract the public. This has worked in the past, but Americans have had enough of this, and those who were conned to believe these lies are waking up to the truth and abandoning the Democratic plantation.

The lamestream media, since the time President Trump stepped into the Oval Office, has been making accusations that Trump is a Nazi and a fascist. In July of 2021, CNN compared Trump’s presidency to “Hitlerian fascism,” a term they accredited to woke General Milley. But the lamestream media are not the only crony agents of the deep state. Academia, from Kindergarten to University, are indoctrinating our children to be submissive pawns of the state, malleable Winstons (1984) schooled by the “Thought Police.” Complicit teachers, most of which are radical ideologues, have been rewriting history and teaching children that Nazism and fascism are radical right-wing political ideologies. That in order to fight back, they must be intolerant of those who subscribe to this type of ideology. It is no wonder why most of the composition of the ranks of Antifa and Black Lives Matter (BLM) are made-up of America’s youth. Add to this a push by Big-tech in silencing Conservative views on the internet, with impunity, and the constant bombardment of promiscuous, nihilistic, immoral, and bohemian behavior promoted by the entertainment industry, and we have a recipe for fundamentally changing America.

What is Fascism?

In economic terms, Dr. Charlotte Twight describes fascism’s philosophic core as “capitalistic collectivism.” This is to say, that the essence of fascism is collectivist in nature, with rights for the collective being superior to those of the individual. It relies on capitalism but merely as “a tool in the hands of the politicians and bureaucrats.” Fascism views the good of the state to be of paramount significance. If at any time, the good of the individual clashes with that of the state, the individual good must be sacrificed. Twight notes, “Like any form of collectivism, fascism empowers an elite to determine the specific purposes that other individuals in the society are compelled to serve.”

Giovanni Gentile (1875-1944), considered the original philosopher of fascism, viewed the fascist state as a popular state, and in this way, as a purely Democratic state. The relationship of the state and the people was not one of the state with the individual. Rather, it was a relationship of the state with the collective. Gentile writes:

Every citizen shares a relationship with the State that is so intimate that the State exists only in so far as it is made to exist by the citizen. Thus, its formation is a product of the consciousness of each individual, and thus of the masses, in which the power of the State consists. That explains the necessity of the Fascist Party and of all the institutions of propaganda and education that foster the political and moral ideals of Fascism, so that the thought and the will of the solitary person, the Duce, becomes the thought and the will of the masses.


In analyzing the passage above, it is clear that fascism is kindred to Marxism and socialism in its collectivist nature. In fact, prior to his infamous “March on Rome” in 1922, Benito Mussolini (1883-1945) was “the editor of the socialist paper, Avanti!” Contrary to what American academia teaches our children, fascism is clearly a Left-Wing phenomena. What’s more, fascists employed what they called “squads” to intimidate and compel the opposition. These were “the military arm of the State,” that, “in order to create a superior regime, violated the controlling laws of a moribund State system.” Clearly, these tactics are employed by Antifa and BLM today. Not surprisingly, these thugs are affiliated with, and protected by, the Democratic Party. Gentile tells us that fascism “transformed its own illegal action squads into the legal voluntary militia–in which the spirit of the revolution would be maintained until the fulfillment of the revolutionary program.” This appears to be the fate of Antifa and BLM in America.

This is not the only connection with fascism by the Left. In fact, FDR and Mussolini had a mutual admiration for each other. In The Big Lie, Dinesh D’Souza notes that, “Franklin D. Roosevelt was an avid admirer of Mussolini who sought to import Italian fascist schemes to America.” In his book Three New Deals, Wolfgang Schivelbusch, writes that Rexford Tugwell, a member of FDR’s “Brain Trust,” was sent to Italy on a “fact-finding trip” in an effort to overcome the economic crisis and modernize society.” Upon returning, Tugwell justifies Mussolini’s actions in his diary. He writes:

Many of the things which seem to me necessary. And at any rate [Italy] is being rebuilt physically in a systematic way. Mussolini certainly has the same people opposed to him as F.D.R. has. But he has the press controlled so they cannot scream lies at him daily. And he has a compact and disciplined nation although it lacks resources. On the surface, at least, he seems to have made enormous progress.


Furthermore, Tugwell wrote this about fascism, “It’s the cleanest, neatest, most efficiently operating piece of machinery I’ve ever seen. It makes me envious.” Jonah Goldberg notes in Liberal Fascism that, “FDR’s defenders openly admitted their admiration of fascism.” Mussolini on the other hand, praised FDR’s book Looking Forward, and noted that FDR’s New Deal Administration was kindred to fascism. In The Road to Serfdom, Friedrich Hayek writes that fascism and Nazism are cousins of progressivism. He adds, “Many who think themselves infinitely superior to the aberrations of Nazism, and sincerely hate all its manifestations, work at the same time for ideals whose realization would lead straight to the abhorred tyranny.”

In The Big Lie, Dinesh D’Souza writes, “While FDR’s legal powers remained short of those of Mussolini, this is not because he ‘held-back’; rather, he was constrained by America’s constitutional system which prevented this dangerous man from bringing full-scale fascism to America.”

On Nazism

In Hitler’s American Model, John Q. Whitman writes that Will and Power, a newsletter intended for the Nazi youth, enthusiastically praised FDR and described him as “a ‘revolutionary’ who might fail only because he lacked ‘a disciplined Party army like our Führer.’” Furthermore, the Nazi-controlled Berlin Illustrated Magazine, put on a display of FDR in a “heroic photo spread” within an article titled, “the Fascist New Deal.” Whitman also notes that the Nazi newspaper Völkischer Beobachter, repeatedly wrote favorable articles about FDR. He adds, “We have long known the strange fact that the Nazis frequently praised Franklin Roosevelt and New Deal government in the early 1930s. FDR received distinctly favorable treatment in the Nazi press until at least 1936 or 1937, lauded as a man who had seized ‘dictatorial powers’ and embarked upon ‘bold experiments’ in the spirit of the Führer.” These are kindred ideologies.

Some argue that FDR could not possibly have been a Nazi or a fascist because he fought them in WWII. But this argument does not take into consideration that progressivism, Nazism, fascism, and socialism are kindred ideologies just as the Shiites and the Sunnis are each Muslim. The main difference between the two is over their line of succession from Muhammad. Nevertheless, this seemingly trivial difference has not prevented bloody conflict between the two. A similar argument can be made between Catholics and Protestants following the Reformation. An even more powerful argument can be made against this claim if we consider common conflicts, even murder, between members of the same families (siblings, cousins, etc.). Does the fact that they fight amongst each other mean they are not related? Not in the least. Similarly, progressivism, fascism, Nazism, and every other collectivist ideology belong to the same family of despots.

Even John F. Kennedy had affinities to Nazism. In The Big Lie, D’Souza notes that, “JFK toured Nazi Germany in the 1930s and came back effusive with praise of Hitler and his theory of Nordic superiority.” JFK added, “The Nordic races appear to be definitely superior to the Romans.” Even after the war ended, JFK traveled to Germany in 1945 and wrote about this trip on his diary, still holding a soft spot for Hitler. In Prelude to Leadership: The European Diary of John F. Kennedy Summer 1945, we learn about JFK’s diary entries. JFK referred to Hitler as having in him “the stuff of which legends are made.” Adding, “Hitler will emerge from the hate that now surrounds him and come to be regarded as one of the most significant figures to have lived.” Is this being taught in schools today? Absolutely not!

The fact of the matter is that progressives are the fascists and the Nazis. They have always been. Jonah Goldberg concludes on the matter this way; “What distinguished Nazism was that it forthright included a worldview we now associate almost exclusively with the political left: identity politics.”

Senile Puppet

Senile Joe Biden bumbles along following the despotic legacy of his predecessors. Clearly displaying symptoms of dementia, Joe is told what to do, what to say, where to go, and what to sign. If he attempts to improvise in the very least, he ends up “getting in trouble,” as he has personally attested. He is easily manipulated, and his unelected handlers are running the country. What’s more, Joe was made a usurper, running a campaign from his basement while his handlers plotted a soft coup d’etat.

Seizing the opportunity, Joe’s handlers are quickly dismantling America’s pillars of individual liberty, justice, and equality under the law. They have perpetrated “a long train of abuses and usurpations” against our God-given natural rights. They have allowed our country to be invaded, created a weapon of mass destruction in a man-made virus, collapsed the economy, made subjects of citizens without their consent, and violated the primary purpose for which governments are instituted, securing the rights of the people. When faced with such despotic oppression, the Declaration of Independence notes it is the right and duty of the people “to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”  

Many states have taken steps to secure their elections (e.g., Florida), while others have taken steps to ensure a permanent aristocracy (e.g., California). It is crucial all individual states take steps to secure their elections, particularly the swing states. Ensuring fair elections is the first step. This must be followed by a massive showing at the polling place, and casting a ballot for Conservative (Trumpian) Republicans, from federal, to state and local elections.
