Is Barack Obama a fascist?
According to the Britannica Online Encyclopedia:
Although fascist parties and movements differed significantly from each other, they had many characteristics in common, including extreme militaristic nationalism, contempt for electoral democracy and political and cultural liberalism, a belief in natural social hierarchy and the rule of elites, and the desire to create a Volksgemeinschaft (German: “people’s community”), in which individual interests would be subordinated to the good of the nation.
Hmmm, sounds like Obama!
According to the Concise Encyclopedia of Economics:
Fascism is socialism with a capitalist veneer. The word derives from fasces, the Roman symbol of collectivism and power: a tied bundle of rods with a protruding ax. In its day (the 1920s and 1930s), fascism was seen as the happy medium between boom-and-bust-prone liberal capitalism
Well, Obama has talked about the need for government intervention to prevent "bubble and bust" economics.
Jerry Doyle, former Wall Street broker, actor playing Michael Garibaldi on Babylon 5, and now the 7th biggest talk show host points out in Human Events that:
Economic fascism can be defined as government control over the four P’s: Product, Price, Profit Margin, and People
Then he uses Obama's takeover of Chrysler to prove that Obama has taken control of all of them. Let's examine this. Obama didn't like the product so he's requiring Chrysler to make cars no one wants (claiming they were already doing that and now he's going to fix it); he doesn't like the price so he's going to set the price, he now controls the profit margin and finally, he has taken control of the people that are allowed to have jobs and how much they are paid and has even seized the assets of investors and given those investment shares to the unions.
So is Obama a fascist? YES!!!!!!!!!
