Fascism is coming back to Europe. The ideology of authoritarian nationalism has seen a resurgence as far-right, anti-immigrant parties have captured a disconcerting number of votes in recent European elections. The shocking video above, showing a politician from Greece’s neo-Nazi “Golden Dawn” party as he assaulted two left-wing women on television two weeks ago, is only the most recent example.

Here are some other examples of the nasty political movements that have thrived amidst the failed policies of austerity. (Hint: They don’t like Jews, Roma, and other minorities.)

  • William Deutschlander

    In the United States we call them Republicans!

    • onedonewong

      The guy slapping the women looked like barak, he has a history of beating women

      • Ibsyboy

        Now that is just downright childish. You should be ashamed to attach something like that to a comment thread and expect to be taken seriously. Recess is over, back to the class room children.

        • onedonewong

          Are you denying that barak has in fact beaten women??? Pleaseee

          • Ibsyboy

            That’s a silly question. Grow up. Or get a job with FOX. The Liars Club would accept you with open arms. Willard Romney is a pedophile, Google it..

          • onedonewong

            Much as I thought another barak cover upper

          • Ibsyboy

            He is too conservative for me. Too much compromizing. Cut social programs, plans to cut more. Left of center, and the center has moved to the right. He is more conservative than Roosevelt. He is a Eisenhower Republican. Eisenhower expanded Social Security and refused to cut taxes. Eisenhower’s top tax rate from 1952 to 1961 was 91%. He refused to cut taxes until there was a balanced budget. Unemployment was at 3%.

          • Ibsyboy

            Something gutless Issa wouldn’t touch with a ten foot pole. It’s called a legitimate criminal investigation. The fraud allowed by the right wing activist judges of SCOTUS.

            New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman .

            According to news reports, Schneiderman is targeting the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, perhaps the most powerful lobby in Washington, to find out whether they illegally deployed $18 million in non-profit donations to fund campaign attacks. It would be the “first significant [investigation] in years into the rapidly growing use of tax-exempt groups to move money into politics.”

    • Derek Schneider

      Funny, socialists tend to align deeply liberal…the KKK was founded by Democrats.

      And racism rears it ugly head from ALL sources…it isn’t compartmentalized to the Republican party.

  • NewsProducer08

    Very shallow view of europeans. they are not stupid like the writer suggests. Writer makes stupid genaralizations and uses history just to advance his superiority. He does not give justice or value to all opinions, races and nationalities of people in europe. Europe is way more democratic and advanced sosiety than america.

    • I Am an American, I agree about the advanced thing: At the most elementry level! They atually had me believeing sosiety was socitey. Good Lookin!

  • howa4x

    This sounds like the Tea party dosen’t it?

  • howa4x

    Europe is more sensitive to outsiders since their countries have long linage of just them and no history of immigration like we do, so a rise of nationalism could happen more easily there. Don’t forget that europe was the conquering white race in Africa and the mid east, so they resent them more then we do.

    • sigrid28

      But there is no “we” in your “we,” is there? Our population is much more diverse than those of European nations. Yet even this multicultural heritage has not made us exempt from racism. Take, for example, the Obama-hating, right-wing branch of the Republican Party, which wants a one-term presidency for him at all costs, even the demise of the U.S. economy. Or consider the Republican embrace of the Birther movement, which refuses to accept the legitimacy of the president’s birth certificate and seeks to portray him as an outsider. It is shocking to realize that moderate Republicans have not disavowed Republican extremists who resent minorities in the U.S. just as much as Europe’s neo-Nazi nationalists resent the populations they identify as “outsiders.” Here, as in Europe, this phenomenon is known as xenophobia, fear of the other. The extent to which this American breed of xenophobia is allowed to dominate Republican politics depends on our ability to identify it and limit its destructive effects on the distinctive liberties that we hold dear.

      • howa4x

        Even though parts of america are racist the whole country isn’t . We have more cultural diversity than any other nation and is the melting pot for different cultures. We just have one party the republicans that push fear, racism, sexism, homophobia, religion(as they make it to be) and whip up anti Latino hysteria. The tea party are fastly becoming our Nazi party with their rigid interpertation of a constitution they know little about. Europe is just 70 yrs removed from a viral fascism where over 25 million were slaughtered.We have not had that kind of blood letting since the civil war, but like europe our loosers never really accepted the outcome and it is them that now form the core of the republican party. Whites in Europe see their countries having waves of immigration and groups within them find it easier to blame them for economic problems, and retreat to their cultural roots.

    • I do not resent the Europe, so speak for your self.

      • howa4x

        I didn’t say I resent Europe. I wrote it is easier for europeans to resent the new immigrants since they used to be the people they conqured and the countries are made up of the same peoples, like the french or germans are all similar

  • If this country was working under Romney economics, we’d be in the same place. I can’t believe people want to do what they are doing in Europe, do they also want to watch the US go down like Europe is right now? I should hope not!!! But, nothing excuses this male politician of throwing things and hitting women, he should be brought up on assult charges!!!!

    • onedonewong

      Yea that 10% unemployment rate is something to cheer about. There are fewer people working in this country than at any time during W’s 2nd term

      • And the economic collapse that happened UNDER GEORGE W BUSH brought about that unemployment. Now the Republicans continuing their slash-and-burn economic policies are preventing a real recovery from taking root!

        • CPANY

          The Republicans never seem to be able to address economic problems, even those that they create. In 1929, Herbert Hoover’s sole response to the depression was the Reconstruction Finance Corporation. It was formed to lend money to business, i.e. the trickle down approach. In 2012, Boehner, Romney and Ryan can think no further than cutting social programs as a way of righting the wrongs committede by Dubya and his neocon buddies.

        • onedonewong

          Economic collapse?? The unemployment rate under W was lower than at any time under barak. The cause of the recession was the democrats taking over the House and Senate in 2007 and the related legislation that precipitated the red ink

        • onedonewong

          No the housing collapse was a direct of Dodd’s and Frank’s community reinvestment act that forced banks to make BAD loans. W inherited a recession from Clinton but you never heard him whine. He manned up and took on the task at hand because he was a leader not a community organizer.
          Obama has done nothing but add to the debt every job he created cost the taxpayers $250K each and every green job cost $465K. Has W been able to run again the recession would have been over

    • CPANY

      Thanks to Dubya and his neocon buddies, this country seems to be going down without emulating Europe’s mistakes. We have our own home-grown SOBs like Romney and Ryan.

    • Ibsyboy

      Ireland is the best example of what the GOP has in mind for the USA. Look and see what austerity has done to a once vibrant economy. Cuts, cuts and more cuts. High unemployment. Romney and the GOP have no solid plan to deal with the need for Jobs. They are stuck on the same track we ran in to a wall on with Bush. So lets try one more time to do something that we know does not work.

      • Derek Schneider

        I suppose we can “Move On” “Forward” with Obama’s “Change” and keep spending money we don’t have to “buy our way to prosperity”.
        The government needs to lower it’s level of involvement in our daily lives, plain and simple. If they could possibly stop trying to control the way every American eats, drinks, recreates, procreates, grows plants, grows income, grows nesteggs, raises children, teaches children, etc. If they could allow people to think for themselves and requires them to be responsible for themselves, financially, morally, ethically, spiritually…our government would find surplusses where they only see deficit now. Would find willing and able workers (like they had 50 years ago) instead of dependents. Would be able to go “forward” as a nation…instead of going down in flames as a government led Plutocracy supported by the rich and their corporate coffers.
        We need representatives that actually represent their constituents, not the highest bidder. Politicians that uphold their oath to the Constitution…and legislate from a position of ethics…not as a means to gain more power.

    • Derek Schneider

      You do realize that our country is headed to the same place? It is the leadership of socialist democrats headed by a socialist president that has us pointed in this direction.
      You cannot spend your way to prosperity…especially when it is creating a deficit that is already irreversible. Our country will forver be in debt…due in great part to the policies and legislation enacted by the current president and his blind followers in both the house and senate.

      I do agree that this man’s behavior is absolutely wrong (and racism shows a person’s complete ignorance). Although (and this hurts morally to point out, but ethically it is important to the facts) the woman in white hit him first.

  • How can YOU believe your lyin eyes?

  • a langley

    The above is most certainly NOT a photo of Geert Wilders … check with photo agencies guys … Wilders is so unmistakable with a wild head of blond hair.

  • ObozoMustGo

    The last 3.5 years summed up in one photo…. unfortunately! ;-(

    Have a nice day!

  • ObozoMustGo

    Just a tad off topic, but not too far…..

    AUSTERITY…. it’s called living within your means. It’s called not spending more than you take in. This is referred to amongst most normal human beings on planet earth as being responsible. Why do you think they are FORCED into austerity? Why? Have any of you ever asked yourself that question? You know the answer. They have spent too much borrowed money for too long, their debts exceed their GDP, and now they cannot pay it back unless they cut everything else. If they default on their loans, they’ll never get another penny loaned to them. While you think that austerity may not be working after a year or 2, there is no question about the FACT that living within your means, not spending more than you take in, will be tremendously positive for those countries in the long run. All of you instinctively know that I am correct. You do. Admit it.

    Have a nice day!

    • Sorry, but you are wrong. Austerity during a recession is about as logical as putting a malnourished patient on a starvation diet. The problem in America is not a lack of discipline, it’s a lack of DEMAND. The vast percentage of economists agree that a recession demands stimulus not austerity. You see, when there is a slack in the economy every dollar spent by the federal government (spent in America — I’m not talking about off shore spending) creates $3-$4 in our gross national product. Some economists say it increases our gross national product up to $7. Having a large deficit is not a problem when our long term interest rates are low, and right now they are at historical lows. Federal money spent to make sure that teachers, police officers, fire fighters, bridge workers & road workers get hired, not laid off, means these people will have salaries they can spend on the goods and services that corporations provide (and middle class/blue collar workers tend to spend most of what they make — so their spending quickly stimulates the economy. This increases DEMAND, which stimulates corporations to produce more goods & services, which, in turn, stimulates corporations to hire more employees (hopefully in America). The reason why this approch works so well now is because our long-term interest rates are so low & the Feds plan to keep it that way.

      Now, the reason why Clinton ended up with a federal surplus was because we were at full employment. The closer we get to full employment, the more the federal deficit falls. Because the more people are employed, the more the gov. receives in income taxes and the less the government needs to payout in unemployment insurance, social security, food stamps, medicaid, etc. Oh, and by the way, the American economy cannot be compared to a household’s economy — we have not been on the gold standard for over 40 years. This is all called MACROECONOMICS, you might want to learn a little something about it before you make any more comments that reveal your total ignorance on the subject.

      • ObozoMustGo

        Patty… Sorry for delayed response. Been out for 5 days.

        You might want to rethink the proposition of calling me ignorant on economic issues. I’ve read your diatribe and I would swear you have copied that from an Obozo apologist website. Most of it seems word for word what I have responded to from another poster in this sea of leftist insanity only a coupl of weeks ago. And it’s all the same perverted Keynesian bullsheet that you all post. You dont even know what the hell you’re posting on here, Patty. You cant know. You defy common sense. Here is my response to you…

        1) Why do you think those Euro countries are having to go through austerity in the first place? Huh? Come on be honest, just a little bit honest. Is it because they have been so fiscally disciplined and conservative in past years? Noooo…. Is it because the politicians just want to be mean? Nooooo… Do you think maybe it’s because THEY SPENT TOO DAMNED MUCH MORE THAN THEY TOOK IN FOR DECADES? uhhhhhhhhh…… HELL YES!!!!! Of course that’s why they are having to follow autsterity measures. They have too much debt brought on by decades of irresponsible spending.

        2) Having established that austerity is a budgetary measure instituted in response to a government that has TOO MUCH DEBT and cannot make payments any longer, why would you idiots suggest more of the same that got them in this position in the first place? Why? Because you are STUUUUPID! That’s why.

        3) Does the Fed really set interest rates? To a moron, they do. But they don’t really. The Fed controls what they call the Federal Funds Rate. This is the rate at which banks can loan excess cash to one another on very short term basis (overnight). Real interest rates are set by the bond markets. So, for example, the fact that the Euro Central Bank may have their main rate set at 1%, the bond market will NOT buy any of Spain’s 10 Yr. bonds unless they are yeilding over 7%. So what is the interst rate? 7%. Who set it? The market. That’s who.

        4) Every time I see one of you leftist nutjobs try to discuss the Keynesian “Multiplier Effect”, it makes my stomach turn. It’s gone from like $1 turns into $1.50 all the way up to $3 to $4 now. Why not say $10 or even $100? Just make up whatever you want.

        H0w stupid can you all be? Really, how absolutely stone cold stupid can you be? Apparently, very stupid, and stuck on it, too. Let’s cover this real quickly. If what you say is true,why after nearly $6T spent by Obozo alone are we not increasing our GDP by at least $18T? Why? Because it’s not feasible to go into more debt to make ourselves more prosperous. That’s why. Every single dollar of deficit spending is NOTHING MORE than a future tax increase that must be levied to pay for it. This whole notion that speding more on cops and teachers and firefighters and ditch diggers will somehow make us more prosperous is nothing but a fools game. You must be a complete and utter moron to believe this.

        There is no such thing as “stimulus”! You dummies that still think JM Keynes was correct have ZERO capacity to think. Where does government get the money it spends? From taxes, from borrowing, or from simply printing money. It does not get money in any other way. So, when government spends money it does not have, what happens? We have debt. Who pays the debt? That’s right, ultimately, taxpayers must pay the debt with the earnings from productive work. So, in the end, the government is actually spending OUR money and calling it “stimulus” when we in the end we must pay for it anyway. In other words, they spend my earnings that I then have to pay them back for it. What kind of idiot thinks this is a good deal? Only leftist nutjob idiots think this is a good deal.

        5) All of you leftist morons that claim putting money in peoples hands creates DEMAND are about the biggest ignoramuses there are around. You think that because the government puts either someone else’s money or borrowed money in a person’s hands, that all of a sudden they want to eat? Or they want transportation? Or they want electricity? Are you stupid? Yes is the answer to that question. People demand the basic necessities of life in order to stay alive. And that’s where economic needs begin. Food, clothing, and shelter. They dont happen just because you give them money. They happen because they are people. Demand is there already. You dont create it. And when there is little to no incentive for someone who is productive to meet those demands with goods and services, economic activity slows down. There are 2 sides to every equation, Patty. Demand AND Supply. And we dont create demand just by giving non-producing members of society more money. Like I said, demand is there naturally. The trick is to incentivize risk takers to come up with new ways to meet demands more efficiently and at lower cost. The risk taker who tries to meet demand is the one who hires the people that need work in order to earn to pay for and satisfy their own demands.

        6) Clinton had a nearly balanced budget in the last year of his terms because Newt Gingrich and the Republicans were effective at curbing spending for a time, and Clinton was a pragmatist. Obozo is NO pragmatist. He is a leftist idealogue with no other story than the proletariat vs. bourgeois.

        7) The laws of mathematics of budgeting and finances apply equally to all, regardless of personal, business, or government. You cannot spend more than you take in forever. Eventually, you cannot pay even the interest on your debts. This is what you are seeing in Europe. It is coming to America, no doubt.

        Have a nice day!

  • TheOldNorthChurch

    Fascism is no conservative republican idea in this country – it is the opposite. It is an ultra liberal philosophy that is close to utopian belief. It believes that the all important “State” or in this case National Government lead by intellectual elitists make better decisions than the People.

    Fascism
    1. Someone who believes in a totalitarian state rule by a supreme leader (dictator) who controls everything possible and treats people harshly — to gain the leader’s own success,* to foment an aggressive military nationalism, and to promote a Social Darwinist belief that hard life strengthens the state by weeding out the weak.

    Less Government control and more personal liberty is the “Anti-Fascism”.

    • Or the definition is a political philosphy, movement or regime that exalts nation and often race or religion above the individual that stands for severe economic and social regimentation, and forceable suppression of the opposition. Facist regimes are often dictatorial regimes.

      Now that sounds more like the republican party, worring about blacks, and latinos and saying the US is greater than all other countries that want to control our social and economic growth and want everyone to be the same (gays are evil, hispanics are evil, muslims are evil only WASP are good and only if they are evangelial) and which crowd is it that forcebly shouts down the other? oh yeah the teabaggers. And while the radical religious rightwing teabaggers are not saying they are a dictatorship which party unilaterally destroyed unions, voted on by the majority of the workers? Which party votes in lockstep (goosestep) with tyhe corporations that hire them? Make your own call

      Just for the record it is impossible to be a socialist and a fascist since a socialist supports the freedoms of everyone and thinks we are all interdependant whereas a fascist support the power of the state/race/religion and will destroy those who do not conform one is about conformity one is about individualism within a society. One is closer to the Democrats one is closer to the Republicans, Democrats do tend to lean socialist, inother words they support the good of society of the good of the privedged few, Republicans tend to lean fascist they support the nation but only those parts that conform to thier view and they do their best to force that view on others. niether party is completely fascist or socialist, both parties have some of each in them The problem we have in the US is not if we are socialist (we are not) or fascist (we are not) but where to draw the line, how much socialism is acceptable, how much fascism is accaptable anyone who says NONE to either is an idiot as both are required to have a government and a society.

      • TheOldNorthChurch

        You can not combine Nazism with Fascism. But as your comment points out both Socialism and Fascism require a Totalitarian State. The opposite of Liberty and Freedom.

        • STORMENHARD

          That’s nonsense Norway, Denmark, Finland, Sweeden et. al are all
          Socialist countries with a higher standard of living then ours and are ALL Socialist states with a healthy Democracy none are ‘Totalitarian States’… Again you and you other morons who believe President Obama is a Socailist, wouldn’t know a Socialist if he bit you on the ass ’cause he ain’t even close!!!

          • TheOldNorthChurch

            Norway’s economy is fueled from its record investments in its offshore oil and gas fields. Its population is only five million and it residents are predominantly ethnic Norwegians who are of North Germanic / Nordic descent. Not a good place for minorities.

            Denmark is also five million in population and its Evangelical Lutheran church (Den danske folkekirke) is state-supported and accounts for 80% of the population. The next largest church only has two percent of the population. Not a good place for minorities.

            Finland has a highly industrialized, free-market economy. Finland is not considered a “Socialist” Country. Its population is again five million and it is ethnically 93 percent Finnish. 83% of Finns are members of the Lutheran Church. Not a good place for minorities.

            Sweden is 87% Lutheran. Its population is nine million. Why don’t you tells us all what its ethnic diversity is? Want a guess – Swedes. . Not a good place for minorities.

            Give us an example of a highly diverse ethic country with population over 100 million where socialism has been successful.

            By the way – I do not believe President Obama is a “Socialist”, his policies are far more in line with fascism. He is a believer Big Government and Big Business.

    • STORMENHARD

      Actually Fascism is the unification of Corperations and Government…in other words it gives corperations the control over the government…
      “to foment an aggressive military nationalism, and to promote a Social Darwinist belief that hard life strengthens the state by weeding out the weak.” …is exactly the goal of the GOP…
      It has been written that FASCISM will come to America wrapped in the Flag, while holding up the cross and I might add, riding atop a (GOP) elephant…
      WAKE UP AMERICA BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!!!

      • TheOldNorthChurch

        The GOP of George Bush and the Democrat Party of Barack Obama are exactly what you have described. The unification of Corporations and Government. Where am I going wrong with this observation?

        • Sorry, but again your comment makes no sense. First of all, Obama wants to close numerous loopholes that corporations currently have that enable them to pay far fewer taxes that they should. Romney wants corporations to keep these loopholes. Romney also wants to cut taxes for corporations. Romney also is OK with corporations sending American jobs overseas. Obama, on the other hand, wants to give American Corporations a tax incentive as long as they do NOT send American jobs overseas. Obama wants to spend money to create jobs for teachers, fire fighters, police officers, road workers, bridge builders and to keep them from being layed off. Romney wants to cut the ranks of teachers, fire fighters, police officers, ect. Romney is all about giving more money to corporations and cutting jobs of the middle class/blue collar Americans. Obama is about helping the middle class, blue collar workers, the working poor, women, the disabled, the elderly & poor children. Romney is about making American corporations & the top 1% of the wealthiest Americans richer and richer. Right now American corporations are experiencing record profits — but they are not hiring many Americans — they are outsourcing jobs overseas, and they are holding trillions of dollars overseas so that they do not have to pay any American taxes on those profits.

          • TheOldNorthChurch

            Don’t believe it – Obama only wants to get re-elected. He is in the 1 percent and his biggest backers are among our country’s biggest businesses.

    • You’re wrong, it is so easy to point the finger and think you are right. Socialist and Fascist are on opposite sides – so if you think the President and the people who voted for him are Socialists, than they cannot be Fascists. The two do not mix. BTW, there has been both Fascist and Socialist dictators in history, neither is good.

      • TheOldNorthChurch

        If you are correct than how can this article associate the NAZI’s with Fascism? The NAZI’s are “The National Socialist German Workers’ Party” and their message and Socialism are very close to each other. Where has Socialism worked where it does not suppress minorities?

        I do not believe this President is a Socialist. I believe he is closer to fascism in his beliefs. He seems to love Big Government and Big Businesses. His supporters in Business are among the country’s Biggest.

        • The Nazis were certainly not socialists — that’s just what they named themselves. Socialists and communists are very left-leaning entities. Nazis & Fascists are very right-leaning entities. Since you did not learn this in highschool you might want to check it out on wikapedia.

    • Sorry, you are completely wrong. The extreme right-wingers are Nazis and Fascists. The extreme left-wingers are Communists.

  • In this Country we call them Conservatives, whom belong to all parties. They have won many government positions at both the Federal and State level. They hide behind the flag, their claims of being “Christians” as they tell lies and twist the truth and work at taking rights away from women and minorities, blaming our woes on everyone but themselves, and focusing hatred on people who are the weakest in our Society. It is not only Europe – it is here as well. Wake up and think before you vote.

  • zzyz86

    This is just a mirror image of the US. These tea partyers are just fascist by another name. People like Gingrich or a lot of those so called christian preachers are the Father Coglans of our day, just nazi propergandists. We sit back and critisize Europe about Greece, Spain and others about the finacial situation, forgetting that Calofornia , Ilinoise and many other states are just as broke and these states are many times the size of these Eropean coutries

    • TheOldNorthChurch

      You can not link Fascism and Nazism as has been pointed out by others in this discussion. They are different philosophies. You can link Nazism with Socialism as their beginnings where very similar. The problem is that all of these require Totalitarian rule and suppression of minorities. The opposite of Liberty and Freedom.

    I am not the least surprised at these developments. All the world needs is economic unstability and here come the radicals who would burn the world because they think they have the right ideas to solve the world woes. We went through all this in WWII and most of America looked the other way thinking that Hitler would never rise to such power as he had. Least we forget; the rise of Nazism nearly wiped out the Jews and many other so-called undesirables. Will we forget what happens when we allow Brown-Shirts to roam the streets beating people who fail to salute their sacred leader?

    Neo Nazies are the Tea Party and the Republican’s idols who hate minorities and called for holding medical care for anyone over 60 years, and the treatment of blackes as substandard humans. Also the now the States where Republicans gained ground in 2010, one after another inacted laws against Muslim Minorities in these states that is similar to what these European Neo Nazis are advocated.

      First off, it’s The Teahadist Party. They are not neo Nazis. They are confused and misinformed old white people, with little time left and little minds. The real bad guys are the Oligarchs.

The Oligarchs will need some one to keep order, when the lid blows, and it will. I guarantee it. When the working class who support the GOP wake up and see they have been snookered, there will be hell to pay. Taking it to the streets. Then America may come to its senses.

      I agree with your post, except for your sympathy for Muslims. They’re dangerous.

      In the 1950’s, thec United States outlawed the Communist Party as constituting a clear and present danger to the country. I would like to see similar legislation outlawing the Muslim religion

      • The Muslim religion is based on the Old Testament and they believe in Moses’ Ten Commandments. They claim kinship to the Jews and Christ through Abraham. Abraham’s first son whom he begat with the Egyptian slave woman, Ismael, is considered the direct progenitor of the Muslim people. Many Jews live in security in Iran. It was only when the European Jews came to Israel and initiated a reign of terror that the bad blood escalated.
        We falsely accused 9/11 and the anthrax attacks on Muslims. Evidence shows the WTC was exploded and not brought down by plane impact and/or fires. Only insiders were able to wire it for explosion and Steven Forbes saw that wiring or at least the final stages of it being conducted on the weekend before 9/11. There was a power down and security cameras were off and doors unlocked as workmen were coming and going.
        White House insiders secretly started taking antianthrax antibiotics three weeks before any known threat. They attempted to blame Saddam and had US stockpiles of anthrax destroyed in October. The first victim was the photo publisher who published a photo of Jenna Bush sitting on another girl’s lap. Rudy Giuliani purchased the site of the infection and had it decontaminated just as he had the evidence at Ground Zero carried off by the same company that covered up the Oklahoma City bombing, a company appropriately called Controlled Demolition, Inc. The eventual scapegoat, Bruce Ivin, purportedly “committed suicide” before he was even accused. He lacked the equipment to weaponize the anthrax and would have contaminated his lab and himself if he had tried. He was cremated without autopsy. Many other microbiologists around the world including others in the US have met mysterious deaths. I do not know why or if there is any connection to the anthrax attacks.
        Osama bin Laden immediately condemned the 9/11 attacks and the video we claimed was of him “found” in Afghanistan is fake. The man in the video has a wide, round face and a bulbous nose. Bin Laden did not.
        Obama has gone along with the lies. I believe he is aware of them and is probably scared he won’t last long if he doesn’t. Remember the Reagan assassination attempt. It was perpetrated by the son an oil tycoon neighbor of the Bush’s in Texas. Unlike other would-be assassins, he has been released. His brother was scheduled to be a dinner guest with Papa Bush’s oldest son, Neil.
        Marvin Bush was a higher up in WTC Security and Jim Pierce, one of the Bush cousin’s moved his business meeting out of the WTC on 9/11. What a lucky “coincidence.”

          Maynard:

          That’s an interesting post. Do you have any references to substantiate what you wrote? For example, you assert that Ronald Reagan’s would-be assassin is free and back in society. Can you offer anything to back that up?

          Give me a published reference that supports your assertion that Osama bin Laden condemned the September 11, 2001 attacks.

        Muslim are no danger to the US, they are amongst the most peaceful citizens in the US. They did not ask for Sharia Laws to be applied and they respect US laws. if you want blame Muslims, then you should look at the Light Path, the KKK, the Siekhs, and the many others who carried  Terrorist acts like the one in Oklahoma City, then tell me why singling the Muslims in states where they are a small minorities, like Oklahoma, Kansas- leaving alone Florida where the Muslims voted for this Rick Scott and his Republicans.

          The Muslims committed some of the most heinous crimes imaginable against thousands of innocent people in the name of their religion.

          The Oklahoma City crime was committed by one person. There are a billion Muslims in the world and many are potential murderers. It is too risky to allow them to live in civilized countries, free to commit mass murder because of the libertarian traditions of those countries.

          I clearly remember seeing television reports of Palestinian women dancing in the streets to celebrate the World Trade Center and related attacks of September 11, 2001. Three thousand people died and those scumbags are celebrating. That’s the kind of human garbage that you want to let freely roam our country? That’s what you consider “…the most peaceful citizens in the US”?

          We are entitled to protect ourselves and moving the Muslims out is a good first step.

          • emadis41

            My friend you are mixed up, speaking about Palestinian Women who are not US citizens. Citizens as you know are protected by the very Constitutions these people are undermining. You are saying the same garbage that these people are saying. There was not one single Muslim that is a citizen of the US involved in 9/11 or any terrorist activities against the US. You are also showing racism and no better than they are.
            If you speak about the Palestinian (Women) as you said you watched, did you ask why there were only women? it is because their husbands and sons were rounded up into Israeli Jails without the benefit of due process. All while our Congress is given Israel more than $10 Billion a year and bankrolled the Israeli occupation of their land.
            Again if your priest is telling you this garbage that you espousing against Muslims and may be other minorities, wake-up and think for yourself aside of prejudice. I hope that you will think clearly about every issue instead of throwing insults against people who are amongst the best in our nation, they are Doctors, Engineers, Professors and Scientists.

    This is the same party that Obama belongs to the Socialist party. His idol was Germany in the 30’s an 40’s

  • I am appalled at the ignorance of most of the Republican comments on this page. These Republicans don’t know the difference between Nazis, Communists, Socialists or Fascists. And they do not know the first thing about macroeconomics. Educate yourselves before making comments that completely reveal your utter lack of a proper education. Geez!

      Patricia:

      Your post is devoid of any substantive criticism. It’s all fluff. Everyone should “educate themselves” so that they can understand your pseudo intellectual statements.

      If you have something to say, back it up with clear arguments.

  • DurdyDawg

    Didn’t those people learn from their last “master” race? What the hell’s wrong with them even attempting to elect this group of scum.. All they’ll (eventually) do is invade their neighbors, steal their commodities and give their people the impression that their saviors.. Looks like history is in the process of repeating itself, all their lacking is the charismatic bumpkin that will kick-start the third world war.

  • William is correct. Republicans are attempting to bring in a Nazi regime. Don’t think so? Go to Wikipedia and look up Hitler/law. Might be an eye-opener. Union busting–war on women-taking over towns etc.-etc.

  • Which groups sought the expansion of military power and control? Which groups created false flags to get the people to unite behind them in their wars of aggression? Which groups spoke of the Homeland as a motivator to increase police state tactics for control of their people? The Nazis had the Reichstag fire to attack political opponents at home. The Neocons used the anthrax attacks to intimidate the news media and Democrats opposed to the Patriot Act and for blaming Saddam to increase war fervor against Iraq. The Nazis used their own prisoners dressed as German soldiers and Poles to create the illusion the Poles had attacked to foment war. The US planned many secret war games on 9/11 and pulled strings in Riyad, Saudi Arabia to bring young Muslims here to be scapegoated. Then on 9/11 they used alleged phone calls from Barbara Olson to make the hijacking seem real. The only problem, at the Moussaoui terror trial in 2006 the FBI revealed that those phone calls were never connected. When fragmented human bones were found on top of the Deustsche Bank Building 1n 2006 it added further evidence to the explosive destruction of the WTC Towers, because that is the only way such fragments could have gotten there. Of course, the hijackers had no access to the towers to wire them for explosion. They did not have the power to remove bomb detecting dogs from the WTC the Thursday prior to 9/11. They did not have authority over White House insiders to get them to begin secretly taking antianthrax antibiotics three weeks before any known threat. They did not have the power to have a plan to attack Afghanistan on Bush’s desk before 9/11. They did not write the statement that to get the public to support military expansionism would require “a cataclysmic and catastrophic event like a New Pearl Harbor.” The neocons wrote that statement in 2000 and the night of 9/11 Bush wrote in his diary; “The Pearl Harbor of the 21st Century took place today.”

    The philosophy of the Tea Party is similar to that of the Nazis and the Facist of Europe, and that of Romeny is similar, they are willing to bankrupt the US in order to reach power. Both Hitler and Mosoulini did to reach power after their respective countries reach puncrupcy status, both were heralded as saviors of the German and Italian races.
    Who financed them does not realy matter, Koch brothers, Adelson and other dirty billioneers would not have a chance if they did not find this array of currupted sorrogates in the Republican and Tea Parties.

    I’m not mixed up at all. If a Muslim decides to become a citizen and then conspires with other Muslims to carry out terrorist attackes, it’s difficult, if not impossible, to discover their motives until the act is perpetrated.

    Our freedoms are based on people of goodwill. When we’re confronted with people who are bent on our destruction, we must defend ourselves and unfortunately that means temporarily giving up some of our freedoms. One of those freedoms, in the case of Muslims, is freedom of religion.

    The Muslims have amply demonstrated that they are bent upon the destruction of the United States. They are an implacable enemy. It’s a religion that encourages the killing of anyone deemed to be an infidel.

    This cannot be tolerated, because it threatens the lives of American citizens in our own country. In light of the Muslims’ belief that they have God’s permission to carry out their religion’s tenets, we must protect ourselves. The first step is to make it a crime to be a Muslim.
