Alt Left: How the US Staged Fascist Coups in Many Countries the World Over in the Last 70 Years

After World War, the Cold War was started and the murderous Dulles Brothers Installed the Policy known as Containment. This was implemented between 1946-48. As part of this policy, the US overthrew nationalist, social democratic, and even liberal democratically elected governments all over the world as part of the “War on Communism.” We replaced them with rightwing dictatorships. Although it is arguable, in general all rightwing  authoritarian regimes or dictatorships are probably fascist. Rightwing dictatorship = fascism.

These regimes were found most of Central America in Guatemala after 1954, in El Salvador and Honduras since forever, and in Nicaragua under the Somozas.

They were found in all of South America at one time or another. We can see them in the generals after 1964 in Brazil, the democratic facade duopoly regimes in Venezuela in Colombia (especially after 1947 and again in 1964, Ecuador, Peru until the generals’ revolt in 1968, Bolivia under Banzer after 1953, Paraguay under Strausser, Argentina and Uruguay under the generals in the late 80’s and early 90’s, and Pinochet in Chile.

They were also seen in the Caribbean in Cuba under Bautista, the Dominican Republic under Trujillo, and Haiti under the Duvaliers.

In Southeast Asia, they were found in Thieu in South Vietnam, Sihanouk in Cambodia, the monarchy in Laos, the military regimes in Thailand, Suharto in Indonesia, the Sultan in Brunei, Marcos in the Philippines, and Taiwan under Chiang Kai Chek.

In Northeast Asia, a regime of this type was found in South Korea from 1947-on.

They were found South Asia with Pakistan under Generals like Zia, in Central Asia in the Shah of Iran, and in a sense, the Arab World with Saddam (Saddam was installed by the CIA), King Hassan in Morocco, the Gulf monarchies, and Jordan. Earlier, they were found in the monarchies in Libya and Egypt that were overthrown by Arab nationalists. Also, Israel played this sort of role with a democratic facade.

We also found them in the Near East in the military regimes in Turkey (especially Turgut Ozul) and for a while in Greece under the colonels in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s.

NATO formed the backbone of a “rightwing dictatorship” in the background of Western Europe (especially Italy), where Operation Gladio NATO intelligence essentially ran most of those countries as a Deep State behind the scenes. These regimes were found in Spain under Franco and in Portugal under Salazar along with its colonies.

These regimes were not so much in evidence in Africa except in South Africa and Rhodesia and most prominently, Mobutu in Zaire and Samuel Doe in Liberia.

The fascist forms of these rightwing dictatorships varied, most being nonracist fascism but a few being racist fascists (Turkey), and others being Mussolinists (Suharto in Indonesia with his “pangesila”)

  1. Robert, where is your content from WordPress now that your WP was removed? I’m interested in taking a look at stuff like your “Major and Minor” races of mankind and all the anthropology stuff you posted, those pieces were pure gold. Where’s all your old stuff, or is it gone forever?

    1. Only half the articles made it over. But all of the others are accessible on the Wayback machine for sure. It archived everything. I guess I could go get them off Wayback machine and republish them for you all to read.

    2. Go to major and minor research and see what’s still up. Everything should be there and the dead links can be taken to Wayback Machine anyway.

        1. LOL I’m able to work with that site. I just posted The Major and Minor Races of Man. I plan to repost all the others too. Since you want this stuff so much, do you think you could donate to the site.

          Regular commenters are supposed to donate minimum $10. We’re not really enforcing it anymore, but people who make 50+ comments, we are going to start asking them. Also people who are requesting me to do a lot of work for them will also be asked to donate at least $10. You guys are making me do lots of work. You might as well try to pay me a bit for my labor.

          Neither you nor they are obligated to donate $10, but if you have the money and you won’t donate it, I think you’re being a dick. On the other hand, I’ll let you stay on the site and I will probably even shut up about the fact that you are being a dick.

          Also if you have a poverty excuse that you can’t even afford $10, believe me, I understand! Just write me an email explaining your circumstances, and I will let you off the hook. However, if you come into money later on, you should probably donate the $10 minimum.

          Donation is only a requirement (otherwise you’re being a dick) if you actually have $10 to spare and you refuse to donate it. Otherwise, I get the poverty excuse, trust me. We are leftwingers here. We love the workers and the poor.
