Fascio (plural: fasci) is an Italian word literally meaning "fagot" (as in a bundle of sticks), and figuratively "league", and which was used in the late 19th century to refer to political groups of many different (and sometimes opposing) orientations. A number of nationalist fasci later evolved into the 20th century movement known as fascism.The idea that Fascism was nationalistic is a bit misleading as well. A union, like Stalin's Soviet Union rely on "The Cult of Personality" to control people through rhetoric and manipulation; eventually resorting to brute force and genocide.
Like Mussolini, Stalin and Mao, Obama has become the state to many. Pharaoh was often referred to as Egypt. Hitler was Germany, Mussolini was Italy. When these countries finally fell, it was like a spell had been lifted, according to historical accounts. When I see celebrities and small school children worshiping Obama, I see a fascist.
Nationalism, therefore, cannot be Patriotism. It's like seeing a UAW bumper sticker next to an American flag. The two are mutually exclusive in this regard: The United States is all about FREEDOM, Unions are all about COERCION. While claiming collective bargaining against large corporations, the leadership actually uses the friction to create fear. Fear equals cash. Union members are known as the proletariat, when in the real world they've become the serfs.
Conservatives are patriots because they worship the true God of the land. Free principles like those contained in the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. Concepts discussed in The Federalist Papers. Ideas of freedom that have only come from Christianity. This is the real battle. A free society must be a moral one.
For example, the secret ballot. A small bit of freedom used within unions to promote the expression of ideas that may be unpopular. Why are unions so against the secret ballot? Because without the secret ballot a union can express unilateral control. If you don't like a union, or what it is doing, and vote against; with a non-secret ballot, you will be revealed. As anyone knows who has openly opposed a union there are consequences. Threats, destruction of property or beatings and sometimes death occur. Is that moral? How does that make a union for the little guy?
Unions, like Fascism, are both ultra left. Big government, total control over business, production; what people say, speak, and think (hate crimes, political correctness, msm bias).
Wilson's Blue Eagle program, Hoover's square deal, FDR's New Deal, LBJ's Great Society. Obama's TARP, Stimulus, Health Care, and ACORN, are all part of the same plan to remove funds from the productive sector and pump it into fascist, non productive sectors; Keynesian style.
So, in giving unions greater control over America are we going to become more prosperous or less? The Union thugs will enjoy a moment of unearned prosperity at the expense of someone else, but that can't last. Unions are Fascist. Fascism is dependent on the Cult of Personality. When the false god of the land is eventually revealed, Mussolini, Hitler, Stalin, Obama, and all the others, the people turn on them and tear them to pieces. (Obama's poll numbers are the lowest of any first year president polled).
Is that what it will take to defeat the massive corruption going on in Washington today? A complete collapse of society as our Anointed One leads us into the Chicago, or Detroit, pit?
