Biden's Speech Had It All Backward
Biden's Democrats seek a one-party state. Trump's followers want freedom from government power.

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



The Democrats have the "fascist" business wrong.

Donald Trump isn't a fascist, or even a semi-fascist, in President Biden's term. Mr. Trump is an opportunist. His ideology is coextensive with his temperament: In both, he is an anarcho-narcissist. He is Elmer Gantry, or the Music Man, if Harold Hill had been trained in the black arts by Roy Cohn. He is what you might get by crossing the Wizard of Oz with Willie Sutton, who explained that he robbed banks because "that's where the money is."

As for Mr. Trump’s followers, they belong to the Church of American Nostalgia. They are Norman Rockwellians, or Eisenhowerites. They regard themselves, not without reason, as the last sane Americans. You might think of them as American masculinity in exile; like James Fenimore Cooper’s Natty Bumppo, living in the forest has made their manners rough.

If there are fascists in America these days, they are apt to be found among the tribes of the left. They are Mr. Biden and his people (including the lion’s share of the media), whose opinions have, since Jan. 6, 2021, hardened into absolute faith that any party or political belief system except their own is illegitimate—impermissible, inhuman, monstrous and (a nice touch) a threat to democracy. 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). The state and the Democratic Party must speak and act as one, suppressing all dissent. America must conform to the orthodoxy—to the Chinese finger-traps of diversity-or-else and open borders—and rejoice in mandatory drag shows and all such theater of “gender.” Meantime, their man in the White House invokes emergency powers to forgive student debt and their thinkers wonder whether the Constitution and the separation of powers are all they’re cracked up to be.

Mr. Trump and his followers, believe it or not, are essentially antifascists: They want the state to stand aside, to impose the least possible interference and allow market forces and entrepreneurial energies to work. Freedom isn’t fascism. Mr. Biden and his vast tribe are essentially enemies of freedom, although most of them haven’t thought the matter through. Freedom, the essential American value, isn’t on their minds. They desire maximum—that is, total—state or party control of all aspects of American life, including what people say and think. Seventy-four years after George Orwell wrote “1984,” such control (by way of surveillance cameras, social-media companies and the Internal Revenue Service, now to be shockingly augmented by 87,000 new employees) is entirely feasible. The left yearns for power and authoritarian order. It is Faust’s bargain; freedom is forfeit.

Mr. Trump, the canniest showman in the White House since Franklin D. Roosevelt, introduced into 21st-century politics what seemed to be new idioms of hatred, a freestyle candor of the id. Doing so, he provoked his enemies—and finally Mr. Biden—to respond in kind: a big mistake. In the early 1950s, when Sen. Joseph McCarthy was loose in the land, and roughly half the country supported his anticommunist inquisition, President Eisenhower wisely decided, “I will not get into the gutter with this guy.” It took a while for McCarthy to implode.



When Mr. Biden spoke in Philadelphia the other night, he might have been thinking of FDR’s speech at Madison Square Garden on the night of Oct. 31, 1936, at the end of his presidential campaign against Alf Landon—and, by the way, three months before he tried to pack the Supreme Court. That night, Roosevelt boasted that his enemies (Republicans, plutocrats, et al.) “are unanimous in their hate for me.” With a flourish, he added, “I welcome their hatred!”



Americans, lamenting the divisions of 2022 and, some of them, entertaining fantasies of a new civil war, should refresh their historical memories. The country has been bitterly divided against itself any number of times. The hatreds and convulsions of the 1930s (the era of Huey Long and Father Charles Coughlin and the Silver Shirts, of homegrown tribes of Trotskyists and Stalinists) culminated in the ferocious battle between isolationists and internationalists that lasted until the Sunday morning of Pearl Harbor.

The motif of political hatred returned to America almost as soon as World War II ended. The Alger Hiss case of 1948 warmed up the enmities, and McCarthy blew on the coals and turned half of the country against the other half. Such hatred seems cyclical. The 1960s (assassinations, civil rights battles, urban riots, the Vietnam War) had Americans at one another’s throats again. Those eruptions of political rage occurred in the years when the baby boomers and Joe Biden (who was a few years older) came of age and acquired their idea of what America is all about.

That night in 1936, Roosevelt, warming to the language of hatred, suggested that his enemies should get out of the country: “Let them emigrate and try their lot under some foreign flag.” Mr. Biden—who, as he spoke in Philadelphia, was bathed in a lurid red light that seemed, as it were, ineptly theological—was content to cast his foes into outer darkness.

Astonishingly clueless conclusion. 

Trumps following, bottom line, is "white grievance". The return to the Eisenhower era is symbolic, as it represents the last era when people of color shut up and took it.

The real problem is that Biden and his handlers don't even know what the fuck a fascist or a 'semi-fascist' is.

And it shows when they speak.

Now the question will be:

How many deluded, ignorant fools will actually believe the swill Biden spewed?

Gee, remember when the current President said the following:

— Barack Obama is “the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy.”

— “You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I’m not joking.”

— “Poor kids are just as bright and just as talented as white kids.”

— “Unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things.”

— “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t Black.”

I wonder if anyone believes Biden is exhibiting white grievance with these racist remarks?

I am betting excuses are being formulated now for them!

It wasn't a case to be heard. It was a case wrongly decided.

Would you have the Dred Scott decision stand because there were no related cases pending?

On Another Note.. The left is interfering in another election. They have the Jan 6 Committee drama, the document dispute, the inflation bill which was really an energy bill and now the smearing of the best half of the country.  Even if the momentum had changed, as the leftist media keeps telling us, Joe will once again institute some radical policy that will be the worst nightmare this side of malignant cancer. Either way they lose!

It's just another Orwellian assault on language the left has become adept at.  The party of racialism and racial discrimination calls those who believe people should not be jusged or treated differently becuase of the color of their skin, "racists."   The party of big government, regulation and working hand in hand with corporations to censor Americans and push lies upon the public decided to start calling those who favor limited government and deregulation "fascists."  It's chilling to see so many on the left engage in this mindlessness.

We are seeing more minorities escaping from that plantation each election cycle and going independent. Many even seeing the light and voting for their best interests...republican.

You are actually telling them that their choice is bad, claiming that they are being used.

Blacks ARE being used by mostly liberal whites in the democratic party.

They are wooed to vote for the democratic candidate, promising many great things that will allegedly help them in their lives, then when they are elected, they go back to their ivory towers and forget all about the black community.

Rinse and repeat every 2 and 4 years.

So how many times do are you alleging this has occurred bugsy? It seems to me I have read this same claim for decades now. 

If it's more than ONE election cycle, doesn't your comment imply that black voters aren't intellectually mature enough to know when they are being used and DO something about it? 

Or is your implication that they enjoy the abuse?

So, what you're saying is that you believe black Americans are stupid and gullible and aren't smart enough to vote for the candidate that is actually supporting policies that are in their best interest. I'm not really surprised at such a disgusting racist narrative, it's something rightwing conservatives have basically been saying ever since they started migrating to the Republican party after the civil rights act and voting rights act were passed by the majority of Democrats.

Yeah, so terrible of Biden to call Trumpublicans "semi-fascists". /s

            "His ideology is coextensive with his temperament: In both, he is an anarcho-narcissist. He is Elmer Gantry."

@!@

Right off the bat the only 'anarcho-narcissist' I have come across is Mr. Bean. As to equating Donald with Elmer Gantry, which one? The Gantry of Sinclair Lewis or the Gantry of Richard Brooks? In the meantime I can't wait for L. Morrow to quote Donald quoting Elmer quoting 1 Corinthians 13,11.

            "As for Mr. Trump’s followers, they belong to the Church of American Nostalgia. They are Norman Rockwellians, or Eisenhowerites."

The 'Church of American Nostalgia' ... WTF is that, a pawnshop?

Norman Rockwellians? Only if Rockwell painted on velvet.

Eisenhowerites? That's laughable. Rossite Perotites works.

As to both Hitler and Mussolini being socialists, both abandoned socialism very early in their careers and set their dogs upon them, much as Donaldo was a democrat who abandoned them and set his 'velvet' pooches on them.

'Kudos' to Lance(?) ... Lewis(?) ... or is it Lester(?) for hiring Tim Allen to supercharge the spincycle.

This just in....looks like Trump will get a Special Master. This is bound to ruffle a few left wing feathers

From the article....

“The Court is mindful that restraints on criminal prosecutions are disfavored, but finds that these unprecedented circumstances call for a brief pause to allow for neutral, third-party review to ensure a just process with adequate safeguards,” Cannon, a Trump appointee, wrote in her 24-page order."
