    "Fascism s a radical, authoritarian nationalist political ideology. Fascists seek to organize a nation according to corporatist perspectives, values, and systems, including the political system and the economy.They advocate the creation of a totalitarian single-party state"
    -Turner, Henry Ashby. Reappraisals of Fascism. & Larsen, Stein. Who were the Fascists Fascists: social roots of European Fascism. p. 424."organized form of integrative radical nationalist authoritarianism"

    What party does this sound like?
    A few hints: This party believes that collective bargaining rights of citizens against a larger power, i.e. corporate perspectives, is unconstitutional, despite the fact that democracy gives individuals agency in government. For example the right to vote for representation, protest, OR create organizations to lobby their political interest. Read Federalist Paper# 10, written by James Madison, expresses the part about organizations to lobby their political interest.

    They have a major television network that produces propaganda for this party, denouncing their opponents as terrorists or communists. Unlike other networks, this particular network is not only bias, which any form of media will be, but INFORMS ITS VIEWERS WHO TO VOTE FOR.

    This party believe all members of the opposition party should be eliminated from politics, thus granting one party complete control over the government.

    Do these hints seem like fascism to you?


    Now its time for the answer to the question.

    If you said democrats/liberals, then you would be correct, if the question were asking which party is made of apathetic pussies, but it is not. The question is asking to determine which party is fascist. Therefore, the answer is... The Tea Party. I'm sorry to offend anyone on this message board, but you are contributing to fascism.

    Read, for yourself DO NOT have Glen Beck, Sara Palin or anyone else interpret these readings, literature from the mid -late 18th and 19th century, the period that spawned the philosophies shaping our government. Read Paine or Rousseau on the French Revolution, they make the same argument as the founding fathers. Read the Federalist and Anti-Federalist Papers, which are written by the Founding Fathers. If you do this you will understand the Tea Party's dedication to brutally raping the American way.

    There are so many because the Tea Party IS fascist. Do a little research instead of blindly following what some people say. You will find that your party is fascist. I am from a conservative libertarian family, raised to be conservative. However, I was not raised to blindly follow the words of TV personalities. I dare you to takes some time and read three pages of the documents tea party supporters use to convey their message, then examine the party's political actions, and the end result is that the Tea Party does not support liberty, freedom, and democracy, but fascism instead.

    You have no idea my stripe, philosophy, beliefs.... You ASSume. And of course, wrongly.
    There are so many because "The tea party is fascist OMG!!!" is the regurgitated talking point du jour lately. Just because it's parroted and regurgitated thousands of times, does not make it true, Goebbels.

    Midnight Marauder, let me get this straight you are using a Goebbels, who was a fascist, furthermore a NAZI, to defend the position that the Tea Party is not fascist. Are you arguing for fascism or are you just a retard?

    Clearly Marauder realizes that he has made himself look like an idiot, and refuses to retort. Does anyone on the board want to try and argue how the Tea Party isn't fascist? I want one example where the Tea Party allows for individuals or groups of individuals, which are outside the corporate structure, to have agency.

    Odds are the number of Socialist, Communist, Marxist claims against Obama are far greater than one's suggesting the Republican Party has moved far right, and is emulating facist movements of the past.

    Not really, I'm saying they are. Someone please tell me how they are not. I want: a) a quotation from a leading figure of the tea party where they define democracy, liberty and/or freedom, i.e. do not simply list these concepts as their platform but discuss what one or more of these concepts means. b) an example where Tea Party politics demonstrate the concept(s) of democracy, liberty, and/or freedom. c) an explanation of why their actions are synonymous with democracy, liberty, and/or freedom.

    If my demands are not met then I will continue to denounce the tea party as fascist.

    Good point; one might note that anyone who doesn't toe the ideological line (see Scott Brown, or the number of RINO comments) is suspect. I wonder if Freedom Works has bought land to 'house' the dissidents.
