Conservatives are fascists

by Ben Hoffman

  • Fascism is a radical authoritarian, nationalist, right-wing political ideology.
  • Fascists seek to rejuvenate their nation based on commitment to the national community as an organic entity, in which individuals are bound together in national identity by suprapersonal connections of ancestry, culture, blood, and the Republican party.
  • To achieve this, fascists purge forces, ideas, people, and systems deemed to be the cause of decadence and degeneration.
  • Fascists believe that a nation requires strong leadership, singular collective identity, and the will and ability to commit violence and wage war in order to keep the nation strong.
  • It advocates the creation of a totalitarian single-party, right-wing state that seeks the mass mobilization of a nation through indoctrination, physical education, and family policy (such as eugenics).
  • A fascist state’s government is led by a supreme leader such as George W. Bush who exercises a dictatorship over the fascist movement, the government, and other institutions of the state.
  • Discipline and obedience to the leader is demanded by the fascist movement to followers and subjects of a fascist state and is promoted through encouraging comradeship and commitment of followers and subjects.
  • Fascist governments forbid and suppress opposition to the fascist state. In the Republican fascist party, dissent is not allowed.
  • Fascism promotes violence and war as actions that create national regeneration, spirit and vitality.
  • It views conflict as a fact of life that is responsible for all human progress.
  • It exalts militarism as providing positive transformation in society, in providing spiritual renovation, education, instilling of a will to dominate in people’s character, and creating national comradeship through military service.
  • Fascists commonly utilize paramilitary organizations for violent attacks on opponents, or to overthrow a political system.
  • Fascists are for socialized religion, military, and corporate economic losses.

Found scrap of aluminum believed to be from Amelia Earhart’s plane; researchers conclude that Cory Gardner is a Nazi

by Ben Hoffman

Cory Gardner: Nazi

Cory Gardner: Nazi

A group of researchers have determined that Cory Gardner is indeed a Nazi. After pouring over mounds of evidence including videos, articles, political commercials, and other artifacts, researchers have determined that, beyond a shadow of a doubt, Cory Gardner is a Nazi.

In 1991, a group of researchers investigating the disappearance of Amelia Earhart found a sheet of aluminum on the island of Nikumaroro in the Western Pacific. Earhart’s plane, a Model 10 Electra, mysteriously vanished near the island on July 2, 1937. This piece of metal, a sheet 19 inches by 23 inches and made of the same material as Earhart’s plane, looked like it could be the first piece of the aircraft ever found.

Then the team noticed that in pictures taken of the Electra as it took off from Miami on June 1, 1937, the plane had a shiny patch near its tail, covering what had been a specially made window. This patch, Gillespie explained, was an improvised repair, and so was completely unique to Earhart’s plane. Could the sheet be this patch? “My first reaction was: This is a Hail Mary pass,” he said.

The team further analyzed the old photo and turned to a restored Electra to see how such a piece of metal would have been attached. After closer examination, they realized that the sheet perfectly matched in size, shape, and patterns of rivet holes. Even tears along the edges of the sheet aligned with where rivets would’ve been. “It’s like a fingerprint,” Gillespie said. The team reported their findings here.

“This is the first time we’ve ever found something we can link directly to Earhart’s aircraft,” he said. “And we’re going to treat it as a piece of her aircraft.”

Tim Cook with Steve Jobs

Tim Cook, Apple’s chief executive, said he was “proud to be gay” in an essay published early Thursday, becoming by far the most prominent executive of a public company to come out.

“Let me be clear: I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me,” Mr. Cook wrote in the essay, published by Bloomberg Businessweek.

Mr. Cook, 53, has never spoken publicly about his sexual orientation in the many years he has worked in the spotlight at Apple.

In his essay, Mr. Cook also noted that Cory Gardner is a Nazi, and that it’s very dangerous for our country if Nazis gain power.

Latino votes matter in this election if we’re going to defeat the Nazis

Udall vs. Gardner

Udall vs. Nazi Gardner

In the basement of a northwest Denver office building, blue “Latinos con Udall” signs adorned the wall behind Arturo Rodriguez as he pressed the need for immigration reform and appealed to the crowd in the small room.

“Those of us who are Latinos, we know we’re family-oriented,” said Rodriquez, the national president of the United Farmworkers of America, as he stood next to Sen. Mark Udall. “So we’ve got to be cien por ciento — we’ve got to be 100 percent — in ensuring that all of our family votes.”

For Udall, that Latino turnout could make all the difference in a tight race against Republican challenger, U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner. Also at stake, potentially, is Democrats’ control of the U.S. Senate.

Was Jesus An Alien From Outer Space?

by Ben Hoffman

DRUDGE RETORT

The story goes: a star traveled across the sky and came to rest over Bethlehem. On that day, a virgin woman gave birth to baby Jesus.

Could it be that the witnesses to the event mistook the light in the sky for a star, but what they really saw was a flying saucer — a UFO? Could it be that the martians impregnated Mary with a seed from another world and Jesus was the son of an alien? It goes without saying that the martians were here illegally and therefore Jesus was the child of an illegal alien.

The story also claims Jesus rose from the dead three days after his crucifixion. It is very possible that he was never dead but instead was waiting for the mother ship to rescue him from his insane followers. On that third day, Jesus probably gathered his belongings and got aboard the space…

Paul Krugman: Republicans destroyed our economy and continue to hold it back

by Ben Hoffman

gop_recessionMore than five years after the Great Recession officially ended in June 2009, a whopping 72 percent of Americans think the economy is still mired in a recession. And while they’re technically wrong, it’s not hard to see why they have that idea. Despite 56 consecutive months of private sector job growth, the labor force participation rate is at its lowest level since 1978. While the top 1 percent has bounced back just fine, middle-class wages remain stagnant. Can you blame the country for not breaking into “Happy Days Are Here Again”?

In his New York Times column this morning, Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman spells out what’s wrong with our economy and with our country in general. It’s “the destructive ideology that has taken over the Republican Party.”

Read more…

Now, let’s be fair… The GOP has a long history of destructive economic policies. They caused the Enron scandal, the S&L scandal, and most other economic scandals. But while they have always been extreme, they have gone full-blown fascism. Anyone who doesn’t agree with the Republican party “should be jailed or killed.” And that’s just plain un-American and pro-Nazi Germany.

GOP: More than just a political party; it’s a cult!

by Ben Hoffman

gop-goonRepublicans ARE drinking the Kool-Aid.

On Wednesday, Politico published an article in which John Podesta, Bill Clinton’s former chief of staff and current adviser to President Obama, said that Republicans are, “a cult worthy of Jonestown in charge of one of the houses of Congress.”

Those comments caused outrage with Republicans in Washington, and in the interests of political correctness and civility, Podesta apologized to Speaker of the House John Boehner.

But apology aside, Podesta was right.

The Republican Party is a cult worthy of Jim Jones, and all across America, it’s killing off its followers, just like Jim Jones did.

For reasons that typically have to do with god, gays or guns, low-income people across America frequently vote Republican, thus becoming Republican cultist followers.

And then, just like the followers at Jonestown, they let their leaders in the Republican Party pass out “policy Kool-aid” that actually kills some of them.

Thank Mark Udall for opposing the Keystone Pipeline

by Ben Hoffman

KeystonePipelineConservatives have been lying about the Keystone Pipeline for years. Here are some facts about it:

  • The U.S. State Department’s analysis says only 3,900 would be employed directly for construction of the Keystone Pipeline if it is built in one year or 1,950 per year if work is spread over two.
  • It would generate only about 50 jobs during operations once it’s built.
  • It would carry “the dirtiest oil on the planet.”
  • Tar sands is a form of petroleum so dense that at a temperature of 52 degrees Fahrenheit it is “hard as a hockey puck,” and must be heated or diluted with dangerous chemicals to be made to flow through pipes.
    Refining it into useful fuels also requires more energy — and hence more emissions — than lighter forms of petroleum.
  • Oil flowing through the Keystone pipeline would result in an increase in U.S. emissions of greenhouse gases equivalent to adding somewhere between 770,800 and 4.3 million passenger vehicles.
  • Pipelines are hazardous. An average of 97,376 barrels (4.1 million gallons) of petroleum and other “hazardous liquids” have been spilled each year in pipeline incidents over the last decade. These incidents have claimed an average of two lives per year and resulted in more than $263 million in annual property damage as well.

Thank Mark Udall for doing what’s right for America rather than caving to the oil industry.

Man breaks all 10 commandments in one act

Broken commandments

(Reuters) – A man was taken into custody on Friday on suspicion of knocking over a Ten Commandments monument with a car on the grounds of the Oklahoma statehouse and then fleeing the scene, law enforcement officials said on Friday.

The U.S. Secret Service detained the man, who has not been identified, after he was alleged to have made threatening statements at a federal building in Oklahoma City. The man told agents he urinated on the monument and ran it over with a car, said David Allison, the assistant special agent in charge.

The Ten Commandments Monument violates the 1st Amendment because it is on public land, which is paid for by taxpayers. By destroying the monument, the man stopped the perpetration of a crime and is a hero.

Hero who stopped Marysville-Pilchuck High School shooter was first year teacher Megan Silberberger

by Ben Hoffman

Megan Silberberger

Hero Teacher Megan Silberberger

A shooting at Marysville-Pilchuck High School Friday afternoon left one victim and the gunman himself dead. Four other victims were hospitalized with gunshot wounds.
The student shooter was allegedly motivated by a spoiled romance.

A student who witness the event said the gunshots followed a verbal altercation.

“It started off with an argument, but then I looked back and there was just gunshots and just people falling down,” Cervantes recalled. And immediately after the gunshots, the (woman) intervened, he said.

“She heard the gunshots first and she came in running through the door, right next to it,” he recalled.
Cervantes said there was no prolonged struggle between Silberberger and the gunman.

“It wasn’t (a) wrestle. She just grabbed his arm, and it lasted like two seconds, and I heard another shot.”
Cervantes said it was the shot that killed the gunman with his own weapon.

Randy Davis, the president of the Marysville Education Association, said he taught at the school for 20 years and knows Silberberger as someone who student-taught last year and just started her first semester as a social studies teacher.

Davis described Silberberger as “Your classic first-year teacher with high enthusiasm, a lot of passion for what she does.”
