Democrats Promote Fascist Policies – Santa Cruz Sentinel
President Biden’s assertion that people who oppose him (Republicans) are “semi-fascists” is completely retrograde. The policies of the German National Socialists and Italian Fascists were more aligned with the current crop of Democrats and Democratic Socialists.
History-based fascist policies included: socialized medicine, extremely high and complicated taxation (including the “inflation tax”), centralization (anti-state duties), nationalization of education, curricula massive social welfare, a compulsory union (German Labor Front), economics, anti-gun rights, one-party rule, “social justice”, high public borrowing, censorship and repression of opposition, racism, anti-capitalism, anti- individualism, anti-religion, price/wage/rent control, belligerent nationalism, anti-classical “liberalism”. And finally, they ruled by decree and not by legislative acts, disempowering local police in favor of a nationalized police force to oppose political opponents.
Most of these fascist policies fit the current Democrats to a T!
