THIS MACHINE KILLS FASCISTS
- Sticker on Woody Guthrie's guitar, the
intention that heartfelt words in a pleasantly
edgy folk song softens the soul of the worst
Everybody seems to be
obsessed with fascism these days. You know,
how those evil heteropatriarchal imperialists just have too damned
much power. Errgh!
By contrast they seem to be enamored with socialism, and so many seem to feel
that even Jesus was a socialist. You know, how much he wanted to
help the poor and at the same time rip a new asshole on every rich person
Woo-hoo! You go Jesus! Fighting for the downtrodden and
For everyone to get on board with making sure everyone is
equally in every single area of life, it really requires...
Remember, the term fascist comes from the fasces,
a bundle of rods around an axe denoting institutionalized hegemonic
strength, indeed a biblically ordained seven-fold dominion
— check out the fourth chapter of the book of Genesis for more.
Fascism technically refers to the nationalistically directed
administration of a region's social and commercial activity.
Yale professor Jason Stanley recently wrote a somewhat well-received
book about its manifestation in today's Trumpworld, How Fascism
Works. Reading through it you'd have confirmed what you'd
thought all along: President Trump is the worst fascist on the
Stanley methodically highlights all the ways Trump and his
supporters are merely American fascists, mindlessly executing unjust
power-trips through every strata of society. Annnd of course the
most guilty are older whiter angrier stupider males. (Mr. Stanley
exempted of course, because he has been sufficiently enlightened and
proves it by writing prodigiously about it.)
His catalog of fascistic tendencies includes a pronounced emphasis
by the reigning fascist on law and
order — except how does Mr. Stanley expect to most
rigorously implement his
enlightened ideas? He says fascists appeal to a "mythic
past" — except what historical precedents does he
promote to advance his cause without having a "mythic past"
himself? He states fascists will portray themselves as victims to
engender sympathy — except how it is he is not
doing the same making the case that the fascists are victimizing
him, and quite mercilessly he whines!
There are a dozen different inane declarations Stanley makes, and
they are not inane because they aren't true, they're inane because
he claims they only apply to the fascists! He takes perfectly fine
things, rural values and sexual morals and
healthy inquiry among the others, twists them into
perversities, and then applies them to the propaganda and policy of
the autocrat. I mean, it wasn't that hard, really. He wrote his book
after Trump became president, so he could prooftext like a mad
If Mr. Stanley and his legion of cohorts got their way — essentially
ensconcing the gloriously utopian ideals of socialism fully into the
public endowment — they must be just as fascistic as those they
revile. Every civic leader is a fascistic hegemon, and Mr. Stanley is
just as much one himself.
What is goofier is that Mr. Stanley insists that he does
not have the truth, even bleating that ridiculously typical trope
"Anyone who says they have the truth is dangerous!"
Really? Then what, precisely, is Mr. Stanley saying when
he speaks? What is the substance of that? If what
isn't truth, why should we listen to him? He sanctimoniously virtue
signals his stature beyond those unattractive truth claims, then
claims to know unassailable truths we should all embrace.
The reality here is that all these young-blooded broad-minded googly-eyed
fascists are living in a postmodernist fog where they think they can
reject truth because it is all so much power-grabbing, yet at the
very same time tell others that their truth is the one to
which they must conform — nope, no rank exertion of oppressive power there, no.
Remember that fine Oscar-winning film Gladiator?
The main character, Maximus played by Russell Crowe,
was not even the most interesting one. He was certainly
a quite compelling and deeply sympathetic protagonist, but the
most riveting character was the one played by
Joaquin Phoenix, Commodus, the psychopathic tyrant who sought
the people's affections even in his awkwardly
The first of two classic lines in the film comes from him.
"Am I not merciful?!" he furiously screams into the
ear of his sister. Doesn't the entrenched autocrat
desperately want to feel justified in his
institutionalized repressive behavior?
The second comes from Maximus, who sarcastically
"Are you not entertained?" after putting
on quite a show albeit an extraordinarily bloody
one. Later, however, Commodus feels the need to
prove his metal in the arena and pitifully wails
similar much more sincere sentiments to
the colosseum crowd he wishes to arouse in his
Sounds as much like a stridently progressive Ivy
League scholar as it does a pathologically insecure
Every assigned leader in a System position
does this, every one of them Caesars and
every one fascists by definition. Their jobs are well-defined
because every one of us is indeed one of two kinds
of slaves, there is no other. The first is the one
enslaved to his or her own sin, as such by default Caesar must do business with them — could
be priest or minister, could be banker or
bureaucrat, could be that overbearing father/mother
figure whose immersion in the System and its
protocols is so calcified that the ravenous
codependent lifestyle is all one knows.
Or, an individual is a slave to that second thing,
to that second Person, the Holy Spirit
God as Counselor to lead one with His
forgiveness, His mercy, His charity, His
righteousness, His salvation, His lovingkindness.
You are a slave.
The question is: to whom are you enslaved?
Do you know?
A meme capturing the fancy of many conservative-minded folk out
there is the "NPC." NPC is the acronym for "Non-Playing Character,"
referring to the anthromorphs in a video game whose actions are
dictated by the computer as opposed to another live participant
controlling them in multi-player mode. Essentially they are the
CGI-generated figures there on the screen you can blow away and score points along the way.
The point of the NPC is that it is an incisively profound metaphor
for so many out there who simply do whatever
the "computer" tells them to think or do or say. The
computer is essentially the World System. Typically they
blither things like "Trump is a fascist," which is why the NPC is
frequently pictured blurting "Orange man bad." They are so
There are a few who know precisely why "Trump is a fascist" does
indeed have a great deal of veracity. It is just the NPCers don't
because they're hypnotically entranced to say it by World Operatives
convincing them the socialist paradise is juuust within their
reach and that it certainly does not involve acts of
violence on behalf of their beloved fascist leaders as they
trudge to the demonstration eagerly stretching their jowls to
prepare for the inevitable confrontation.
The whole whirlwind is just another of the hundred avenues along
which the officially protracted rebellion metastasizes.
Take a gander at the third chapter of Ezekiel. God repeats a number
of times how rebellious Israel has been and that is the reason she
is enduring her exile. How many times He wants Ezekiel to share that
truth with them — in the most dramatic ways! He even supernaturally
transports him to the place where people need to hear it!
I think about that whole episode
and note that the instrument of Israel's judgment a hundred years
before was Assyria, notorious
for its cruel and vicious — shall I say it — fascist law enforcement.
The more amazing thing is God loved the Assyrian people
just as much. Look at the book of Jonah, the one with the story
of the guy swallowed by the fish. That's what everyone thinks about,
but the theme of the book is how God wants Jonah to tell Assyrians
about Him, so they'd turn and be His. Wow.
God loves the worst fascists.
This is the stuff of The Kingdom.
The stuff of the World is designed, arranged, propelled, and fomented by the Society.
It isn't that we're on the path to socialism —
firmly in place...
and because you need an authoritarian administrator in place to
effectuate it, it means we really do have fascism firmly,
intractably, comprehensively in place. All around us, here in
the United States, right now. Shock: Donald Trump actually has one of the
smaller roles in the whole marionette cabaret.
Democracy is a showcased
fantasy ruse; the reality is the stratospheric roller coaster — rebellion retribution rebellion retribution
— again check out that fourth chapter of Genesis, it already tells us everything we need
to know about Cain and his
ordained work ministering to a reprobate populace. Jason Stanley is
merely a crack intelligence officer from a top System office,
doing his job exceptionally well.
The Resistance feels sooo good.
It is extraordinarily violent, however, and eternal souls are in
You don't have to be in that maelstrom...
There is The Kingdom, right there next to you. And there in that place
far, far away from the System...
Christ is Freedom, The Joy in the midst of all that.
I had intended to end this piece right there but I
can't help but add one more thing. I posted this
officially yesterday, but I just have add this, I
just have to.
Today on the Christian radio show host Roger Marsh
was speaking about the festering social blight having to do
with how lonely we all are and how much we long for
community and what all the demographic numbers there
are that go with it and all the rest of it.
The book he mostly referenced was Them
written by Ben Sasse, a U.S. Senator from Nebraska
who has been climbing in popularity for his brazenly
earthy homespun take on things. What struck me about
it was recalling the subtitle of Jason Stanley's
book: "The Politics of Us and Them."
Tomes and tomes and tomes are written about the
pandemic scratching and clawing to find some common
ground, to victoriously attain that method for us
all to get along. These kinds of things have been
around for eons, and they ultimately don't say very
much. In this country they're just Americanist blabs
that certainly inspire people to remain in their
heinous immoralities in the name of achieving some
The Bible tells us an entirely different story, one
that even the most religiously minded people reject
in droves. It says we're all hopelessly evil and
there is nothing we can do about it. We're alienated
from one another because each of us is pretty much
consumed with murderous impulses, and it's worse when we
it with the deceit and fraud required for the
zealous attempt to rationalize what's going on in our grotesquely charred
hearts. We can try really really really hard
to smile and pat each other on the back and
talk about the weather as if agreeing there's a 75%
chance of rain tonight makes it all good.
there is something Jesus has already done
about it, afforded to each one of us out of His
agape, but many of the most hifalutin Christianly
oriented people don't even get that. They may have
all the right Jesus language down, but so inured to
their System obligations they are incessantly
crushed and crippled by their overwhelming burdens.
They cry in the depths of their souls "I can never
be good enough but I must keep trying!"
In fact the main reason socialists spew what they
spew is because their insecurities drive them into
the most rabid virtue signaling. "Let me
be the one to rescue you. Put me in a
position of power and I'll do good things
for you even if it means taking from some to give to you." Yesterday I caught just a minute of
C-SPAN's television coverage of the House
proceedings and right there was U.S. Representative John
Garamendi showing a placard with a quote Franklin
Roosevelt shared to lobby for the New Deal. It was
something like "We must take from those who have and
give it to those who are needy." He proudly spoke
about it as if it were a core American value.
Marx and Engels are partying in their graves right
The members of the Society of Jesus are having a
riotous celebration in their rectories right now,
No, Jesus said something very different than this.
He said those who have will be given more, and those
who don't will have whatever it is they do have
taken from them. The servant who put in the covered
hole whatever it was he was given to invest was
excoriated by Jesus, simply because it is one of the
most contemptibly disrespectful acts to take the
blessing God has given you and fearfully hide it.
Thing is, World Ops have taken what their Superior
has told them and succeeded in getting people to
secure positions of power by telling their
constituents, "Don't do anything, be needy, let me
take care of you." Sounds quite a bit like Cain's
words, in a very profound sense: "Am I by brother's
keeper? If so, I will go build that city to show you I
The fascist does indeed have the duly authorized
power as much as he humbly screeches "AM I NOT
And on the altar of human sacrifice you go.
At least you'll all be there together getting along
with one another just fine.
I attended a talk Jason Stanley gave at a college nearby. It is
from that talk I gleaned much of the information about his work.
Here is one of the main ways churches
in the U.S. actually do Rome's bidding even if they think they aren't.
I also have a page with some humble recommendations for
making your worship community ungrafted to the World System.
Here is a homepage
piece that elaborates a bit on the absurdity of postmodernism, the
philosophy ravenously embraced by World devotees.
Here is a page with a rough
sketch of modern human sacrifice. Here
is a rough sketch of the modern culture war that the socialists
and fascists claim to be waging against one another, when in
reality they are on the same side working industriously for
Here is a description of the role
and responsibilities of the duly authorized individual appropriately
and endearingly titled "Superior General" assigned the job of
administering the affairs of people comfortably residing outside
of the Kingdom. Here's
a home page piece with a bit more on the overbearing but often
tremendously subtle influence of the Society.
Jesus does say in John 15:15 "I no longer call you slaves, but
friends." Make sure you read the context, because just before He
explains that should you decide to belong to Him, He does expect you, your branch, to be grafted
into Him, His vine. Kingdom dwellers are still connected to Him in a special
and irrevocable way.
Check out the book of Romans to get a good read on how each
individual is a slave either to Caesar or to God. Pay special
attention to the sixth chapter for the most detail about how
enslaved you are no matter what you think.
