A commenter notes that I am an anti-fascist. Truth by told, I’m almost an antifa.
Robert’s a pretty damn solid anti-Fascist, it’s one of his best traits.
I don’t even know why, but I totally hate the fascists’ guts. My immediate reaction to them when I think of them that they should just simply be killed outright, but then I think again since we have some fascist commenters on here, and I don’t want to kill them. But that’s my gut feeling.
Fascists keep trying to sell this Left Fascism stuff to me like 3rd Positionism or National Bolshevism, but all that stuff just leaves me cold or even gives me the shivers. I don’t even know why I dislike it. I think it’s visceral. A lot of it has to do with WW 2, but not all of it. I’m willing to bury the hatchet with these guys.
I’m not some ideological Left nut on the issue, and I don’t automatically hate everything that some Left idiot sticks a fascist label onto. A lot of stuff Left dipshits call fascism is actually reasonable (opposition to illegal immigration, etc.).
Honest, I keep trying to find some “fascist” movement that I could get behind if they might be reasonable and palatable, but I never seem to find one. But I keep looking, because I don’t want to write them off altogether. It’s hard to believe that 100% of fascist movements suck, but I’m starting to think maybe that’s the case. It’s possible that the movement just sucks at the base core element, it’s very ideological rock bottom base itself.
Also there is something deeply wrong with the fascists who keep trying to recruit me to “Left fascism.” I’m polite and friendly to them because, well, I’m not Jewish, and these are “Left fascist” types anyway, so they are not out to kill me as a Leftist.
But there is something terribly wrong with their whole anti-Semitic, tribal, racist, blood and soil, and frankly profoundly reactionary worldview. It smells like barbarism to me. I thought the Left was supposed to be about washing away all the detritus of barbarism?
So we have a long history of “fascism” as a species, so what? We’ve been glorified Cavemen most of our time on Earth. The Left Project is social engineering, to create a new man, and leave all the barbaric life of Old behind. Leave that stuff for the museums and history books. We are moving along now, you know? Remember? There’s a reason we are called progressives. It has the word progress in it, you know? As in moving forwards? Not backwards? Tribal, conservative, racist, anti-Semitic, blood and soil BS can’t possibly be a forward-looking ideology for mankind. I just can’t see it, sorry.
