Naming the Enemy

Let's suppose you are an average working American with centrist / conservative values - meaning that you want to conserve and preserve our Constitutional Republic, the rule of law, limited government, a respectful society, and equality of opportunity for all to pursue success and happiness. In the mid to late 20th century, these were mainstream values. Today, one with those values is pejoratively branded far right, a fascist, and at times a Nazi.

Of course, the National Socialist German Workers' (Nazi) Party embodied the complete opposite of limited government. And it's clear that Fascism is a phenomenon of the left, not the right. Fascism in the United States is expressed in the milder form of progressivism - as a softer form of totalitarianism more in alignment with American culture. Thus in America, we see a form of liberal fascism manifested as an ever-expanding deep state.

It's been said that "he who controls the language controls the debate", and "he who controls the language controls the culture."

So who is calling mainstream Americans far right?

The answer, of course, is the left. That is, the radical far left. The fascist far left.

In the article, Call Them What They Truly Are: The Fascist Far Left, American Thinker, 9 June 2023, D. Parker observes that:

... We are on the side of liberty and individual rights in the marketplace of ideas, while the sinister set is still pushing the failed concepts of collectivism, concepts that have failed for centuries. This isn't the place to detail why they are doing this, only that they desire power over everything and everyone else...

One particularly well-thought-out and received an article from John Green Let's Call Them What They Are: Communists, laid out the groundwork for the discussion...

In his recent speech at the Brown Palace in Denver, Freedom Center founder David Horowitz made the point that there is nothing about the far left that is liberal.

The anti-American left attacks patriotic Americans as "white supremacists," "racists" "domestic terrorists" and "insurrectionists." And we respond by calling them "liberals." There is nothing about them that is liberal. They are vindictive bigots, determined to demonize and destroy us...

Primarily because the far left is fascist as we and many others have pointed out. Labelling them the fascist far left calls their bluff in projecting that on the pro-freedom side of the political spectrum...


Fascism - a phenomenon of the left, by Fred Elbel.

Anti-liberty leftists can no longer hide their fascism, by D. Parker, American thinker, 15 September 2022:

It's obvious now that the far-left is fascist, no matter how much leftists try to deflect with projection on the pro-freedom right.

We call them the party of projection for a reason.  The anti-liberty authoritarians of the fascist far left have no choice in the matter.  They can't admit the truth, and they certainly can't change their socialist national agenda.   So they are stuck with constantly trying to gaslight everyone as to who they are until they have gained enough control...

Lance Morrow, senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, eviscerated the usual narrative in an editorial from the Wall Street Journal entitled "The Left Gets Fascism Backward."

Biden's Democrats seek a one-party state. Trump's followers want freedom from government power...

The evolution of their overprivileged emotions - their sentimentality gone fanatic - has led them, in 2022, to embrace Mussolini's formula: "All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state." Or against the party. (People forget, if they ever knew it, that both Hitler and Mussolini began as socialists)...
