Fascism is a LEFT wing phenomenon

I read somewhere or other that the term “right wing” for fascists originated in the British government, where the communists were seated on the far left while their mortal enemies, the fascists, were seated as far away from them as possible, on the far right, so as to minimize the likelihood of brawling.

But fascism truly belongs to the big government left side of the political spectrum, where top down regulations trump individual freedoms. It was invented by an Italian and was first put into practice in Italy. In brief, it is simply socialism with a national identity.

Fascism bears no resemblance to right-wing conservatism, where grass roots responsibility and individual freedoms come first and government power is carefully limited.

Then There Were Five

December 7, 1941: More than 2,300 American servicemen were murdered in a sneak attack by the Empire of Japan. It drew us directly into a war that had been raging in Europe for more than two years. It changed the course of history and ended a madman’s dream of world domination.

Fast forward 76 years. The USS Arizona still rests in the harbor, along with those joined for eternity. I’ve never been there, but know people who have. You cannot come away from there unmoved if you have a soul. Our WWII veterans are almost all gone now, passing into glory at a rapid rate. After suffering eight years of humiliation at the hands of a man who presided over a country he hated, these few once again have a president who sees them as the legends they are.

World War II Veteran Interrupts Trump’s Pearl Harbor Speech to Sing ‘Remember Pearl Harbor’

During his speech, one of the World War II veterans, Michael “Mickey” Ganitch, interrupted and started singing the song “Remember Pearl Harbor.”

Before President Trump signed a formal proclamation on the 76th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack, one veteran of the Japanese attack broke out in song. Trump said that, following the attack, a “battle cry could be heard by American friends and foes alike: Remember Pearl Harbor.”

The veteran standing closest to him smiled and began singing the lyrics to the Sammy Kaye song. “Let’s remember Pearl Harbor as we go to meet the foe. Let’s remember Pearl Harbor, as we did the Alamo,” he sang. “We will always remember how they died for liberty. Let’s remember Pearl Harbor, and go on to victory.”

The following veterans attended Trump’s ceremony, where the president signed a proclamation for Pearl Harbor Day:

  • Michael Ganitch, chief quartermaster, United States Navy, USS Pennsylvania
  • Jack Holder, Flight Engineer, United States Navy, PBY Ford Island
  • Alexander Horanzy, Private, United States Army, Schofield Barracks
  • Lawrence Parry, Private, United States Army, Fort Armstrong
  • Robert Fernandez, Seaman First Class, United States Navy, USS Curtiss
  • George Blake, Staff Sergeant, Coastal Artillery Battery

THEY ARE A PRECIOUS TREASURE THAT CAN NEVER BE REPLACED.

Today we honor Pearl Harbor Heroes. Thank you to all military for your courage and sacrifice!

Here’s the original version of the song: Remember Pearl Harbor by Sammy Kaye

ON PEARL HARBOR DAY Obama Would Post Photos of Himself — TRUMP Invites WWII Veterans to White House

In December 2013 Barack Obama honored the dead from Pearl Harbor by posting a photo of himself

THIS MAN IS A NATIONAL DISGRACE/

In December 2016, on the 75th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attacks, Barack Obama honored the fallen heroes of Pearl Harbor with another photo of himself.
On December 7, 2017, President Trump honored the fallen of Pearl Harbor by inviting the survivors to the White House.

EVEN ON SUCH A SOLEMN OCCASION, THAT LITTLE PIMPLE FROM #FAKE NEWS STILL HAS TO BE A PAIN.

Flanked By Pearl Harbor Survivors Trump Stops And Drops A Nuke On CNN

Acosta shouted this question to Trump as he exited the room with the Pearl Harbor veterans: “Any comment on senator Al Franken? He made some comments about you earlier today.”

Trump paused and with the strength of the Pearl Harbor veterans behind him, shut CNN down with five words: “I didn’t hear it. Sorry.: Then Trump left the room, flanked by American heroes.

In 1492, Apparently Nothing Happened

There has existed a movement for some time to remove all references to Christopher Columbus, including his statues and the designation of today as Columbus Day, a holiday for federal employees and financial institutions. The snowflakes want to change the name to “Indigenous Peoples Day,” just as they want to refer to Christmas as “winter holiday.”

President Trump Issues “Columbus Day Proclamation” without Obama’s Hand-wringing Apologies
How refeshing is it to have a President who actually works to preserve and honor our History as Americans? Barack Obama worked his entire eight years to denigrate and undermine our common culture and History as Americans. Not Trump. Every Conservative – every American – should support Donald Trump in his desire to preserve our History. Our history and tradition of observing Columbus Day is a good example

The History Behind the Movement to Replace Columbus Day With Indigenous Peoples’ Day
While the Federal Government will close on Oct. 9 for the 80th commemoration of Columbus Day, which was made official by President Franklin Roosevelt in 1937, some U. S. cities will mark the day in a different way, choosing rather to focus on the original inhabitants of the land to which Christopher Columbus sailed.

Italian-Americans fight against movement to abolish Columbus Day
But the gesture to recognize indigenous people rather than the man who opened the Americas to European domination also has prompted howls of outrage from some Italian-Americans, who say eliminating their festival of ethnic pride is culturally insensitive, too.

Columbus, the West, and the Myth of the Noble Savage
For starters, those who were long recognized as American Indians constituted anything but a monolith but, rather, many tribes or nations.
Secondly, American Indians comprised numerous tribes or nations that were continuously at war with one another.
Thirdly, these wars were distinctively bloody and savage.
The Myth of the Noble Savage, a uniquely European fiction that Columbus himself initially endorsed, has long exposed as just that by anthropological and archaeological research.

2017_08 New Yorker Reality Check

It is absolutely ridiculous to associate President Trump with the KKK.

The Ku Klux Klan is the name of three distinct movements in the United States that have advocated and employed terrorism—both physical assault and murder—against groups or individuals whom they opposed.

President Trump has repeatedly and forcefully condemned terrorism of every kind.

The first Klan (late-1860s to mid-1870s) was founded in the South by Democrats who were furious that they lost the Civil War. It sought to overthrow the Republican state governments in the South during the Reconstruction Era, especially by using violence against African American leaders.

“Polls show consistently that what blacks care most about today is jobs and economic opportunity. … So far Trump has done more for black economic progress in six months than Obama did in eight years.” – Stephen Moore, Aug 15, 2017 @ The Hill (link below)

The second Klan (1915 to mid-1920s) was rooted in local Protestant communities, particularly in urban areas of the Midwest and West, during a time of high immigration from mostly Catholic nations. It primarily targeted Catholics and Jews.

President Trump’s wife is Catholic; his daughter is Jewish.

The third and current manifestation of the KKK emerged after WWII, in the form of localized and isolated groups angry about the successes of the Civil Rights Movement. The most optimistic estimate of its total membership as of 2016 was a measly 6,000 nationwide.

Virtually every Christian denomination has officially denounced the KKK.
