Liberal Fascism or Internationalism that Ends in The Same

Decline and Fall: Europe’s Slow Motion Suicide

by Bruce S. Thornton

“The Totalitarian Temptation from Hegel to Whole Foods

The incoherence of our political discourse results in part from sheer ignorance of political philosophy and its history. Abetted by a superficial media, we trade in sound-bite labels and epithets, free-floating signifiers that communicate not ideas but feelings or prejudices––“conservative,” “liberal,” “progressive,” and of course “fascist” are all terms that seldom have any accurate meaning. This sloppiness makes it more difficult to conduct the political debate where it should be: at the level of fundamental assumptions about human nature, the proper role of government, and the goods suitable for the state to pursue…”

As we see it ism is the one that make a teoretical Europe and a teoretical European, but at least the European is an absolute. You could also call it an ideologic construction. Experience show they all have the same ends.

  1. I have been busy and haven’t had the chance to view your blog lately. I had a few moments and wanted to read what you have been writing. I was not aware of Bruce S. Thornton book. It looks interesting. Along the same lines I listened to a podcast from America by political commentator Dennis Prager with Jonah Goldberg, columnist for the Los Angeles Times and contributing editor for The National Review. His new book is Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, From Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning. It might interest you also.

    The term gets tossed out a lot but with the left the shoe really does fit.

    I was doing a decent job of translating the Daniel Pipes’ outstanding contribution to explain the concept Liberal Fascism link that you posted above and completely missed that up at the top there was a link for a canned English translation, that made it a whole lot easier.

    Good stuff!

    Skål,

  3. Joem,

    It looks like Daniel Pipes has been making the rounds.

    UC-Intifada
    By Aaron Hanscom

    Last year Pat Rose, head of the FBI’s Orange County al-Qaeda squad, was asked whether radical Muslim students at the University of California at Irvine posed a security threat. Rose responded evasively, saying that “it was a tough question to answer.”

    Middle East scholar Daniel Pipes would have no difficulty with the question. On January 31, Pipes gave a talk at UCI titled “The Threat to Israel’s Existence.” Pipes was invited to speak by Hillel at UCI and Anteaters for Israel, UCI’s pro-Israel group. But it was another student organization that decided to give Pipes a welcome he won’t soon forget.

    Roughly 100 member of UCI’s Muslim Student Union occupied the central seats in the lecture hall at the beginning of the speech. Most of them wore t-shirts reading “UC Intifada,” the latest in a long line of pro-terrorism fashion trends to hit campus. A coordinated disruption began about five minutes into the talk, after one member stood up and addressed Pipes. After being approached by UCI officials, the protesters exited the building while chanting slogans such as “Anti-occupation, anti-Israel!” and “Anti-hate, anti-Israel!”

  4. I fully agree with Daniel Pipes. He makes an outstanding effort to get to the truth in
    his works.

  5. Hi Dissident Press,

    The real term for what is happening around the West is called Post Modernism which means to redefine one’s world for one’s own personal feelings, whims, and desires. There are no absolutes and concrete values, and categories. This is the language of Liberals, and this is what the Islamists use in tandem with the Libs to further their agenda. So when they say they are the Religion of Peace, their definition of Peace is not the same definition as your and mine.

    This game the libs and islamists play confuse the debate which is the ultimate goal. This is why we see liberals so convinced that islam is a religion of peace. Because of their definition of peace.

    If we, free thinking people, do not get a grasp as to what Post Modernism is we will lose this fight! Here are two links that you can go to so you can start to understand what is happening to our language thus what is happening to this debate on Islam.

  6. Hi No Compromises

    Thank you for your information and the links. I am afraid this http://www.radicalacademy.com/adiphipostmodernism.htm does not work, but http://www.radicalacademy.com/ is in order.

    Yes, I do know postmodernism, and I have been following ‘its successes’ from the
    beginning.

    Theory is a logic system based on hypotheses. If you (as a Post- or a Trans-modernist)
    are so engaged in reaching the clouds from where reality is impossible to recognize
    that you forget to check the hypotheses, you shall not even reach the sky, and never
    really understand anything at all. And if you do after all, you shall not even be
    able to see or listen to the ground.

    I am fully aware of the impoverishment of the language, and shall definitely not change mine according to wishes of the enemy – especially the that of so-called Danish-speaking part.

    Try: http://www.lilliput-information.com/truth/tru1.html

    Leo Tandrup has expressed it in short: The time we live in is characterized by form
    without contents

    Jens

    PS: For the time being islam and postmodernists sail on the same tactical wawe. Sooner or later they will have to meet each other, I am looking forward to this meeting, indeed.

    But I am afraid that at least here in Denmark a lot of so-called liberals and conservatives have jumped on the postmodern or another ideological wagon – with the same end as them all – from the beginning especially in order to adapt to THE EUROPEAN UNION.
