Cynical Publis explain(s) why it is important that we call Democrats "fascists" and not "Marxists."
READ THIS (PLEASE)
I want to explain why it is important that we call Democrats "fascists" and not "Marxists." Let's start by debunking the university-taught lie that the political spectrum runs with fascism on the far right and Marxism on the far left. That's balderdash.
The political spectrum runs from the top with totalitarianism down to the bottom with anarchy. Fascism and Marxism sit side-by-side at the very top of that totalitarian stack, with very little to distinguish between the two. They are virtually identical in practice, with only subtle differences (for example--government owns industry (Marxism) versus government wholly controls industry (fascism)--the end result is the same).
With that in mind, it is fair to call the Democrat Party of the 21st Century both "Marxist" and "fascist." But here's the thing--Democrats are secretly kind of proud of being called Marxist. They see it as a badge of honor. They view the collectivist impulse of Marxism to be moral and just, so calling them a "Marxist" makes them smile.
But they HATE being called "fascist." They DESPISE being called fascist, especially when you can explain cogently and accurately how they behave just like 20th Century fascist regimes (see my Tweet immediately below for an example). They HATE it because deep down they know it's true, and they feel trapped when someone calls them on it. It embarrasses them, makes them act rashly, and disempowers them just like showing a mirror to a vampire. Please get on board "the Democrat Party is fascist" train--it's a winning formula.
