- Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights
Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of "need." The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners. - CIA Torture
- Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause
The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial , ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists. - Police killing blacks, blacks killing police
- Supremacy of the Military
Even when there are widespread domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized. - PNAC is alive and well
- Rampant Sexism
The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more rigid. Opposition to abortion is high, as is homophobia and anti-gay legislation and national policy. - Look around you!
- Controlled Mass Media
Sometimes the media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government regulation, or sympathetic media spokespeople and executives. Censorship, especially in war time, is very common.
- Obsession with National Security
Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.
- Religion and Government are Intertwined
Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the government's policies or actions. - What “Separation”?
- Corporate Power is Protected
The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite. - Wow, right here in America
- Labor Power is Suppressed
Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely, or are severely suppressed .
- Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts
Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression in the arts is openly attacked, and governments often refuse to fund the arts.
- Obsession with Crime and Punishment
Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forgo civil liberties in the name of patriotism. There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.
- Rampant Cronyism and Corruption
Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.
- Fraudulent Elections
Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections.

Our FASCIST Future?
Wow, just watched a movie that makes the “Interview” toilet trash in comparison. Of course, that is where SONY's assassination film belongs in the first place – flushed down the crapper, and flush twice as it is a long way to Seth Rogen's face...book! But a film worth watching is called “The Imitation Games” and all about the efforts of the British MI5 to break Hitler's “Enigma”, the German encryption code that once deciphered allowed for allied troops to put Hitler's “Project for the New Auschwitz Century” - a.k.a. PNAC - to rest for heaven's sake! So I went on-line and found the digital algorithm that was used by Alan Turing in efforts to duplicate the decoding made famous by this “Top Secret” project. Now there exists many rudimentary algorithms that try very hard to duplicate the “code” breaking, but most fall short as it is very complicated and based on serious mathematical permutations. Sure you can today download a “Turing” App, which may be OK for playing around, but don't take the results seriously. So once I had the “Turing Algorithm”, that had remained “Top Secret” until most recently, well I linked into a Cray Super-Computer to see what kind of entertainment I could busy myself with on New Year's Eve, 2014. See, since I am an Alaskan resident, I have access to a super-computer located up at the University of Alaska in Fairbanks, paid for by the U.S. Taxpayers. Once linked in, I set-up the code for the decoding, just to see what it produced when certain words were used as inputs.
Input: George H W Bush generates FEDERAL...
Input: George H W Bush William Jefferson Clinton generates FEDERAL ASSOCIATION...
Input: George H W Bush William Jefferson Clinton George W Bush generates FEDERAL ASSOCIATION of SLAVERY CONTROL...
Input: George H W Bush William Jefferson Clinton George W Bush Barack Hussein Obama generates FEDERAL ASSOCIATION of NON SLAVERY CONTROLLING IDEOLOGIES...
So when Obama was input, it appeared to find a deviation away from the Bush/Clinton trend toward something of interest – which is very interesting. Now for the finale add as an input along with the above Hillary Rodham Clinton or John Ellis Bush. The decoder generates FEDERAL ASSOCIATION of SLAVERY CONTROLLING IDEOLOGIES SANTIFYING MISERY...which renders FASCISM from the 1st letter of each word? You get the same damn results for Hillary or Jebb, if either individual were elected as the next president. Now the odds that another Bush or Clinton would generate equal results, the odds of the “Enigma” generating this result is not a “coincidence” but could it be a “flaw” or a design to “Warn” us upon eminent danger? It means we are leaning towards a “FASCIST” form of government! But this is understandable, but surely not acceptable. See, when the world was stuck in that “Communist verses Capitalist” rut, many realized that one day one or the other would die off sooner then the other. When that occurred, it was realized that those under communism for so long no longer would tend to side towards capitalism – which resulted in the theory that once the Soviet Union started on that road towards “materialistic” behavoirs, it would mean “capitalism” as Americans enjoyed for so long would find also a death blow and another form of “Control” would be shoved down our...well guess what, our only recourse of course is towards “FASCISM”. Get the point, if we continue down this path, with more of the Bush-Clinton dysentery dynasty, we are doomed - as “Fascism” is coming to a gulag near you, once our creative neighborhoods! If this NATION entertains another Bush or Clinton, we are doomed. Obama was our saving grace, don't you get it. Yes, we elected a “Black Man” to show us the way out, as the dysentery dynasty of the Bush & Clintons, it is dangerous – enough is enough! When you take the time to analyze what is going on in this nation, with Congress, with politics – it is unadulterated FASCICM we are bargaining for and it is gaining momentum as we serenade ourselves with gutless politians bent on, well “FASCISM”. Take the “Britt Test”, to evaluate just how close this nation is to established FASCISM:
And the kids are asking, “Daddy are we there yet”?
