Left-Liberal LA Times Calls Trump Supporters Fascists

Capitalism, Communism, Constitution, Fascism, Left-Liberalism, Political Philosophy, Socialism

“Bernie Sanders’ socialist inclinations do not bother his fans,” blared a Los Angeles Times headline. Just kidding. That’ll be the day a left-liberal ignoramus hypocrite at the LA Times lobs insults at the beloved Bernie’s supporters.

The real title to this fatuous piece is, naturally, “Donald Trump’s fascist inclinations do not bother his fans.” Because the author is ignorant about everything, not least political philosophy and history, he sees nothing comparably vile, detestable and totalitarian about other candidates’ socialist prescriptions and proclivities. You’ll never hear a word from moron media members (David Horsey) to the effect that professing anything remotely socialist ought to be stigmatized as totalitarian.

Of course, no fascism is involved. As at least one legal scholar writing at the New York Times offered, “Trump’s Anti-Muslim Plan Is Awful. And Constitutional.” In other words, a president’s plenary power to prevent a possibly dangerous cohort from obtaining immigration status is not fascistic, it’s just not “nice.” In line with the writer’s liberal asininity, the rest of this bloke’s article (David Horsey) consists in appeals to authority, not argument: “Megyn Kelly said, Max Boot said, Paul Ryan said.”

George Reisman, PhD, explains “Why Nazism Was Socialism and Why Socialism Is Totalitarian”:

… apart from [the great economist] Ludwig von Mises and his readers, practically no one thinks of Nazi Germany as a socialist state. It is far more common to believe that it represented a form of capitalism, which is what the Communists and all other Marxists have claimed.

The basis of the claim that Nazi Germany was capitalist was the fact that most industries in Nazi Germany appeared to be left in private hands.

What Mises identified was that private ownership of the means of production existed in name only under the Nazis and that the actual substance of ownership of the means of production resided in the German government. For it was the German government and not the nominal private owners that exercised all of the substantive powers of ownership: it, not the nominal private owners, decided what was to be produced, in what quantity, by what methods, and to whom it was to be distributed, as well as what prices would be charged and what wages would be paid, and what dividends or other income the nominal private owners would be permitted to receive. The position of the alleged private owners, Mises showed, was reduced essentially to that of government pensioners.

De facto government ownership of the means of production, as Mises termed it, was logically implied by such fundamental collectivist principles embraced by the Nazis as that the common good comes before the private good and the individual exists as a means to the ends of the State. If the individual is a means to the ends of the State, so too, of course, is his property. Just as he is owned by the State, his property is also owned by the State.

But what specifically established de facto socialism in Nazi Germany was the introduction of price and wage controls in 1936. These were imposed in response to the inflation of the money supply carried out by the regime from the time of its coming to power in early 1933. The Nazi regime inflated the money supply as the means of financing the vast increase in government spending required by its programs of public works, subsidies, and rearmament. The price and wage controls were imposed in response to the rise in prices that began to result from the inflation.

The effect of the combination of inflation and price and wage controls is shortages, that is, a situation in which the quantities of goods people attempt to buy exceed the quantities available for sale. …

Adult Lives Matter: On Kids And Communism

Communism, Education, Family, Morality, Pop-Culture

Of the 224 people on board, 17 were children: Each time TV anchors report on the tragic crash of the Russian metro jet airbus, in the Sinai desert near El Arish (once in Israel’s control), they detail the number of kids dead, as they cluck and shake their noggins.

Why? Is the death of a kid more of a loss than the death of an adult? No.

The hallmark of an infantile and, I’d argue, immoral society is the deification of The Child. Not for nothing did the communist slave societies place kids in control of their parents. This is how you invert the moral order, also the aim of Communism’s leaders.

The feral kids took to killing their elders like the proverbial ducks to water. Read the Black Book of Communism: CRIMES, TERROR, REPRESSION.

There was no angst involved where kids killed their Confucian-minded, strict elders. For kids are naturally liberal. They want nothing more than more privileges, more license and lenience; fewer chores, work and demands for obedience. Every parent knows and has experienced this first hand.

This is why a moral society is a hierarchical, ordered society in which adults guide children until they are able to govern themselves.

By the way, have you noticed the rise in the phenomenon of kids killing their parents (the ultimate sin, so specified in the Ten Commandments)? The trend coincides with parental permissiveness and the trend to prostrate one’s adult self before the kids.

Capitalism Is Freedom, Mr. Pope, Communism Is Slavery & Death

Capitalism, Christianity, Communism, Left-Liberalism, Morality, Religion

The Left has vanquished America—the gaseous media strumpets and their papal “experts” certainly give that impression, in their coverage of the arrival of Pope Francis. One of these venal types on CNN has just ventured that Pope John Paul criticized capitalism as much as he did communism, therefor justifying Pope Francis’ folly.

Sacrilegious nonsense.

Capitalism is the moral right to make a living freely and voluntarily, absent coercion, and by relying on the rule of law and the sanctity of private property, the latter beginning with individual self-ownership:

This philosophical, moral wonder has lifted millions out of poverty.

Now capitalism is being juxtaposed to a system chosen by leading lights like Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong and Pol Pot, to best justify the centrally planned slaughter of over 100 million people the world over and the enslaving of many more.

If this is not yet more proof that the Left has vanquished America, I don’t know what is.

How disgusting are your lawmakers? Read about the carnival.

Sovietizing the Suburbs: Rule By Bureaucracy

Communism, Liberty, Private Property, Race, Racism, Regulation

A critical media ought to be withering about Barack Obama’s plans to sovietize any American suburb deemed too white (barring his abodes, his vacation spots and the schools his daughters attend). Instead, pages upon pages of a Google search yield zero criticism of this racist, racialist and tyrannical infringement upon freedom of association, property rights and federalism.

What can one expect from a female “writer” at The Atlantic, reporting on the regulation called “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing”? A surfeit of affection and approval:

… Obama administration issues a new rule—and a mapping tool—that are designed to help communities address segregation. …

… On Wednesday, HUD took a big step toward fixing its own ineffectiveness, releasing a new rule that requires that cities and regions evaluate the presence of fair housing in their communities, submit reports detailing the presence of segregation and blight, and detail what they plan to do about it. Communities will be required to hold meetings or otherwise solicit public opinion about housing planning and integration every five years, and will have a new trove of resources to assess their progress.

“This important step will give local leaders the tools they need to provide all Americans with access to safe, affordable housing in communities that are rich with opportunity,” said HUD Secretary Julian Castro.

Parts of the new rule will take effect in 30 days.

By law, communities are expected to affirmatively further fair housing through the way they use federal funds, including Community Development Block Grants (used for a variety of development initiatives), public-housing-authority programs such as Housing Choice Vouchers and housing complexes, and HOME grants, which fund the development of affordable housing.

Since our local shysters vie for federal funds; they will be diligent about shattering established communities by busing in problem residents. Once again, middle-class Americans will bear the brunt of Obama’s bureaucracy.

The Atlantic‘s idiot “writer” seems to think that the neighborhood creates the individual, rather than the opposite: Individuals acting together create their neighborhoods. She solicits official vapor about “neighborhoods and communities marked by conditions of slum and blight,” [that] exclude people from well-resourced neighborhoods and communities” …
