FASCISM ISN'T SO
DEAD AFTER ALL
In today's world, it seems, fascism is not so dead after all. The fact
is, it's making an astonishing comeback. Indeed, the echo of jackboots
has been swelling in the United States and Europe for several years
now. Skinhead thugs invoking the name of Adolf Hitler were once dismissed
in both North America and Western Europe as an aberration - that's no
longer the case.1
In Germany, a list of people from every walk of life - politicians,
lawyers, journalists, mayors, social workers, writers, teachers, and
business people - has been circulating. It's a list of "liberals"
who have been targeted by neo-fascists as enemies who need to be eliminated.2
In England, there have been an estimated 27,000 racist attacks associated
with skinheads and other neo-fascists in a year's time - one attack
every 20 minutes.3 In France there has
been the birth and growth of Jean-Marie LePen's extreme right-wing National
Front. In Italy Alessandra Mussolini, granddaughter of Benito Mussolini,
the fascist dictator who first "legitimized" fascism as a
political movement, is now a member of the neo-fascist party's delegation
in Italy's Parliament.
of these movements are feeding off white, xenophobic, "tribal extremism"
fed by a panic which has been aroused by the conspicuous presence of
foreign immigrants - in Europe, mainly Slavs from the east and Muslims
from North Africa and the Middle East, most of whom are uninterested
in assimilation into Western European societies; and in the United States,
Mexicans, Haitian boat people and a flood of Asians. All this is coupled
with a sense of intense financial insecurity caused by the ravages of
free trade and the fear of what the future will bring economically.
And everywhere these ingredients (i.e., xenophobia and financial insecurity)
are being blended with a profound hostility toward the traditional liberal
elites - elites which ordinary people seem to hold responsible for pushing
economic globalism and a new multi-culturalism with which few whites
can feel comfortable.
Fascism - with its appeal to whites to take pride once again in their
European-based civilization - projects a powerful magnetism to a beleaguered
community which feels buffeted by uncontrolled immigration, by the new
multi-cultural ethic which seems to demean the white community's Christian-based
religious and cultural heritage, and by the new economic globalism which
ruthlessly ships its jobs overseas to Third World countries.
Add to all this the re-emergence of conspiracism and the Illuminist
Myth and one has the makings of a possible catastrophe. And just how
widespread conspiracism - which all too often is the seedbed of right-wing
ideologues and ethnic strife - has become in Europe and the United States
is revealed in the numerous theories which abound in rightist circles
regarding the sudden demise of communism. Many in the right believe
it's all a big lie - a charade perpetrated by the Jews and other "Internationalists"
in order to lull the West to sleep; to the right-wing, it's all part
of a dark plot4 engineered by a sinister
Jewish cabal hidden safely away in Jerusalem and New York - a malignant
and foreboding world-presence, the behind-the-scene puppet masters of
all that is going on - one which is manipulating ethnic minorities within
Europe and the United States to accomplish its sinister "one-world"
The level of xenophobia directed against the minorities, especially
in Europe, has already reached alarming levels, even taking the direction
of "ethnic cleansing," the burning of synagogues, etc. Indeed,
this ugly phenomenon has now reached even into European capitals (Moscow,
for instance, where the Chechens and other "ethnic mafias"
- all supposedly controlled by the "Jewish International"
- were expelled from Moscow; in Berlin where gypsies, blacks, and Muslims
have been burned out of their apartments; and in Paris where Jews are
routinely roughed up, etc.) And this is to say nothing about what's
going on in Serbia where Serbs believe they are defending European civilization
against a new Islamic onslaught directed and financed by a New York
Jewish cabal - a scenario which is so convoluted it defies any easy
explanation, but one which nonetheless enjoys great popularity among
the front-line fighters.
And it's not just Europe. In the United States, multi-culturalism
is beginning to backfire in a most remarkable manner. Taking a cue out
of the multi-culturalist's notebook, white university students, who
have felt targeted by black, Native American and Latino "ethnic
studies programs," are beginning to take a renewed interest in
their own ethnicity, in their own racial and ethnic identities; all
this is being coupled with a growing revulsion against being targeted
constantly as the "bad guys" in the new multi-cultural chic.
This is especially true among white male students. George Will - no
liberal himself - warns that fascism is a "revenge movement;"
it "flourishes as a doctrine of vengeance"5
- and increasingly white males are in the mood for revenge.
By letting loose the demon of "diversity," and by telling
minorities to "take pride in their ethnicity" - even to the
extent of demeaning whites - liberals have unwittingly released a monster
which in the end may very well devour them. By legitimizing "ethnicity"
and "cultural pride" as political vehicles for America's minority
communities, liberals have cleared the way for majority whites to seize
upon these same vehicles in order to defend themselves from what they
deem to be minority excess.
When liberals defend Khalid Muhammad's (and ipso facto, the Nation
of Islam's) anti-Semitism, when they invite him to speak at their universities,
when they do nothing to stop the manufacture of minority myths which
demonize the Jews, when they allow black, Latino and Native American
faculty members to freely "deconstruct" history in their classrooms
in the name of "academic freedom," then what they have unwittingly
done is to clear the way for fascist apologists to "reconstruct"
the Holocaust as a myth perpetrated by the Jews, and to re-legitimize
anti-Semitism and "white pride" in the majority community
- after all, if minority blacks can use anti-Semitism to create "cultural
pride" and "ethnic identity," why can't majority whites
do the same?
Yes, fascism is alive and well - and its spreading! And liberals largely
have themselves to blame!
