Fascists Against Donald Trump

“To be a Fascist and enrolled in another party is impossible; to be anti-socialist is not enough anymore; to accept other ideas or variations on Fascism is intolerable. The truth is only one. He who believes in it has to defend it with his life. And whoever does not believe that he possesses the truth, absolute and sole, cannot be a Fascist.”

-Italo Balbo

As I’m sure most of you have noticed, Fascism has begun receiving a considerable amount of attention on the web within the last few years. Sites like Right On, and Radix Journal, along with groups such as the New British Union and the American Blackshirts would have been unthinkable 20 years ago, and our durability is testament to the growth in popularity of Fascist thought. Along with this growth comes a certain amount of confusion. While Fascism itself is not new. The exposure to what truly constitutes Fascism is. A mutant, altered view of Fascism has been shoved down the throat of the American public since the end of the Second World War. To most people Fascism is synonymous with convicts, Skinheads, and authority figures who like to impose violence for its own ends. And unfortunately there has been many individuals who have been more than willing to fulfill their own dark fantasies by taking on this role while referring to themselves as a Fascists. Despite all of this, the strength of our faith has shown through and Fascism continues to progress. But we do have a significant threat on the horizon and that is the Presidential campaign of Donald Trump.

To a large extent the candidacy of Donald Trump has garnered support from those in the third position based upon a combination of who we are and what appeals to us. As Fascists we realize the importance of nations, borders, and cultures. The dangers presented by immigration to these is immense. So for many of us a politician’s position on this issue comes first before all others. But as Fascists we also need to be concerned about history and context. Not only should the position itself be of importance but also the rationale behind that position. Let’s not forget some of the issues where our support overlaps with mainstream politicians particularly on such issues as abortion, gay rights and drug usage. All three of which we’ve been on the losing side because of the failure of conservative politicians to lay a solid foundation for their beliefs. We’re looking at even further defeat on immigration and the future of Fascism if we decide to throw our support to Donald Trump.

For about the last 40 years the primary argument against immigration has been that the system for naturalizing immigrants is broken. Too many people are allowed to come across the border illegally, and there is no efficient way to easily weed out criminals from the law abiding. Conservatives, through fear of alienating potential new voters and being accused of racism have progressively stopped questioning the value of immigration itself over this time span and instead have tried to slow the tide of new immigrants by attacking the system for being too chaotic. With this method also failing the newest justification for reducing immigration is that terrorists from Middle Eastern countries are likely to get through the cracks in the background checks and commit acts of terrorism on American soil. While these are legitimate concerns which should be dealt with. If they are the justifications which are going to be used to limit immigration then we’ve already lost the war.

Let’s take Donald Trump’s position on the issue as stated in December.

"Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life.”

He is correct on this point, but the justification for limiting or banning Muslim immigration is not. More than 99% of all Muslims will never commit and act of terrorism. For almost all Americans there won’t be any imminent threat to their safety. The problem goes much deeper than physical well-being, it goes to a cultural level. It’s the Sharia law that will be implemented de facto in neighborhoods across the country, the different historical heritages, holidays, and outlooks on life. What we’ll have is Parts of the population living by standards and norms which are completely alien to the other parts of the population. The moral and spiritual ties which bind people together into a nation will no longer exist. Instead of a nation you will have disparate cultural groups of individuals which will resemble a giant mall where people will be only bound together by the marketplace and their insatiable lust for material goods and comforts. If we lend our support to a candidate like Trump who favors limiting immigration for the wrong reasons we will create a foundation for even more immigration in the future. For if the system of processing refugees and immigrants is improved thereby becoming more efficient, while weeding out the criminals and potential terrorists then the justification for immigration reduction no longer exists and the doors will open even wider than they are currently.

In case more convincing is needed, Mr Trump said the following earlier in 2015:

“I would get people out and then have an expedited way of getting them back into the country so they can be legal…. A lot of these people are helping us … and sometimes its jobs a citizen of the United States doesn’t want to do. I want to move ’em out, and we’re going to move ’em back in and let them be legal.”

And then on November 12th of this year Trump’s son said the following

The point isn’t just deporting them, it’s deporting them and letting them back in legally. He’s been so clear about that and I know the liberal media wants to misconstrue it, but its deporting them and letting them back legally.

Trump has also been inconsistent on the issue of work visas for foreign workers. At times he’s talked about reducing the scope of the program but

“A Reuters’ investigation in August found Trump-related businesses have requested more than 1,100 visa workers including workers to till his vineyard and 250 models for his modeling agency.”

Not only will Trump be laying the foundation for further immigration in the future, but with his inconsistencies it’s entirely conceivable that a potential Trump administration will create a justification to increase present immigration rates. We can often tell much about a man from his actions. Donald Trump has not given us any reason to believe he will be true to the words he’s spouted during the campaign. It appears as if the wishes of the American people will like always go unfulfilled this election cycle. This needs to serve as a reminder that there is no hope and no solution to the problems we suffer from as a people without a significant change in the governing structure of the Country. Throwing support to candidates who will just nibble away at the edges will further legitimize the Democratic system and put us further back from accomplishing our goals.
