You can be a total xenophobic racist male chauvinist bastard and still not be a fascist.December 13, 2015 Tim WorstallPolitics16 CommentsSo that’s one candidate explained then. previousOn the value of a masters degree in historynextYup 16 thoughts on “You can be a total xenophobic racist male chauvinist bastard and still not be a fascist.” Ralph Musgrave December 13, 2015 at 12:02 pm Saudi Arabia, Israel and several other countries have had highly restrictive and blatantly racist immigration policies for decades, and the silence from lefties has been deafening. Positively side splitting innit? I sneeze in threes December 13, 2015 at 12:29 pm Oxford Brokes and Middlesbrough poly, would no one else return their calls. dearieme December 13, 2015 at 1:17 pm Blair was more of a fascist than Trump, insofar as I can guess while Trump hasn’t held office. I don’t like Cameron at all, but he’s no fascist, neither is Corbyn, nor is Obama. Corbyn and his circle is effectively commie though, which is worse. I don’t think we’ve seen a Nazi in politics since the originals were defeated, but maybe I’m overlooking someone? Mr Ecks December 13, 2015 at 1:48 pm “Fascism” is corporate socialism. It is a leftist heresy created by leftists and in its early days endorsed by leftists. 70 years of massive leftist lying does not alter that fact. You can have a business but the state tells the main points of how it is run–what you can chargeertc. It may not do so with all businesses and all economic areas but it regards itself as having the power. The entire West is now corporate socialist as the state throws its weight about and sticks its nose wherever it chooses, brooking no interference. Now the West has none of the monkey-suited trappings of Adolf etc and peddles the cultural Marxist line on many matters –that is part of the “socialist” part of corporate socialism. The supposed difference between socialism and fascism are deceit-based and mostly cosmetic. They are on the same evil continuum of supremacy of the state over the individual. The article is mostly garbage: *Fascism requires the rejection of democracy–not like the stunning democracies previously found behind the iron/bamboo curtain. *Fascism requires violence for its own sake–as do Hollywood movies and the WWF. Thank goodness the forces of socialism NEVER use violence–except where its called for eh? As in anywhere and everywhere people resist their paradise.Or dare to express opinions the left doesn’t like. Or even if you don’t resist but are you are the wrong type/class of person eh? (Where do these cunts get off with their waycism-squarking) *Facism is anti-individualist–no shit? Just like socialism. Put the collective over the “selfish” individual. That’s cos it is socialism with a few bells and whistles added. *Fascism has nothing to do with economics?–too stupid to comment. *Not many real Fascists left–not many socialists like to use the label because they have spent decades lying to try and convince people this branch of their evil family is somehow not related to them. But the same breed they are. The only good thing about this stupid article is it gives the name of several leftist “academics” ripe to be sacked in a Uni purge of leftists. bloke in spain December 13, 2015 at 2:10 pm No shortage of “messaged” Trump photos about, are there? Anyone’d think the MSM’s got an agenda. The Stigler December 13, 2015 at 2:33 pm dearieme, Pol Pot is about the nearest person, in that he was sincere in his mad ideology, like Hitler was. Those sorts of dictators are rare. Most of them just want a bigger house, more money and more women. Mr Ecks December 13, 2015 at 2:54 pm OT but timeous and funny: http://decider.com/2015/12/11/the-radicalization-of-luke-skywalker-a-jedis-path-to-jihad/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=1HeWcY5GVlQ ukliberty December 13, 2015 at 3:49 pm Saudi Arabia, Israel and several other countries have had highly restrictive and blatantly racist immigration policies for decades, and the silence from lefties has been deafening. Positively side splitting innit?, I’m fairly certain lefties haven’t been silent about those. Um… particularly Israel. Bloke in Costa Rica December 13, 2015 at 6:37 pm Lukashenko in Belarus is close to being the last echt Father-of-his-people strongmen in Europe. That nutter in one of the ‘stans (Turkmeni- ?) is another one. Whether their rule is actually fascist is harder to pin down (one good point the article makes is that finding a definition of fascism that includes all the regimes it should while excluding the ones it shouldn’t is tricky). Jim December 13, 2015 at 8:27 pm “I’m fairly certain lefties haven’t been silent about those. ” Point me then to the protests outside the Saudi Embassy about their policy of only allowing Muslims to become citizens. I mean such a blatantly racist immigration policy must have triggered a similar response to Donald Trumps suggestions mustn’t it? Hell, point me to any article, blog post, speech, anything from some one on the Left complaining about Saudi Arabia’s immigration policy. There must be lots of them right? ukliberty December 13, 2015 at 9:11 pm Are 427 Guardian articles about migrant workers and kafala enough? http://lmgtfy.com/?q=saudi+arabia+migrant+workers+site%3Aguardian.co.uk Some articles about marriage and residency too. The system requires all unskilled laborers to have an in-country sponsor, usually their employer, who is responsible for their visa and legal status. This practice has been criticised by human rights organizations for creating easy opportunities for the exploitation of workers, as many employers take away passports and abuse their workers with little chance of legal repercussions. … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kafala_system Point me then to the protests outside the Saudi Embassy about their policy of only allowing Muslims to become citizens. I mean such a blatantly racist immigration policy must have triggered a similar response to Donald Trumps suggestions mustn’t it? We know SA’s gov are bad’uns, yeah? Hence the regular shocks about UK gov’s business deals with them. SA’s gov lives up to its standards. Or did I miss the massive statue proclaiming, “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” Trump doesn’t want the USA to live up to its standards. Geddit? Tim Newman December 13, 2015 at 10:07 pm That nutter in one of the ‘stans (Turkmeni- ?) is another one. Turkmenbashi died ages ago.

I mean such a blatantly racist immigration policy must have triggered a similar response to Donald Trumps suggestions mustn’t it?” Well Jim, as ukliberty has pointed out there are plenty. However, why would you want lefties to raise a protest? If you approve of blatantly racist policies here why would they bother you elsewhere? monoi December 14, 2015 at 11:41 am Remind me, since when has islam become a race? Ironman December 14, 2015 at 1:52 pm Well if anyone is offended by ‘racist’ and wishes to be called ‘bigot’ instead, I am happy to oblige them. john77 December 18, 2015 at 11:45 pm @ monoi It isn’t – this is all about “indirect discrimination” because more Arabs than Welsh are Muslim. “Indirect Discrimination” is a licence to scream and stamp your foot. For instance, both parents, both sisters and I took Maths ‘A’ level, only I got a Maths degree – the other four got six degrees while I only got one – but it must be unjust discrimination in my favour because I got a Maths degree and they did not.
