Letters by a modern St. Ferdinand III about cults

Gab@StFerdinandIII - https://unstabbinated.substack.com/

Plenty of cults exist - every cult has its 'religious dogma', its idols, its 'prophets', its 'science', its 'proof' and its intolerant liturgy of demands.  Cults everywhere:  Corona, 'The Science' or Scientism, Islam, the State, the cult of Gender Fascism, Marxism, Darwin and Evolution, Globaloneywarming, Changing Climate, Abortion...

Creeping Fascism and [un] Free Speech

Fascism can take many forms.

by StFerdIII



Fascism is an abused word, with wrong connotations. Most people equate fascism with extreme 'right wing' politics. This is of course wrong. Fascism is similar to and derived from statism, and extreme left-wing ideology. This is true whether you discuss Hitlerism, Mussolinism, or even Islam, and compare it with their very close relation – Communism. One hallmark of fascism is the destruction of free speech. In a fascist society any speech not regulated and approved by the state is disavowed.

In modern socialist societies, top-heavy with massive government and needless programs, fascistic tendencies are obvious. Governments tend to like things which increase their power and popularity – more taxes, a friendly media, good public image – and oppose centers of independence which devalue or destabilise power and subservience. In all fascist states one of the first actions taken by the ruling gang is to wipe out any independent groups which can thwart the fascist will. Churches, the middle class, business associations, foreign trade, social groups, all these and more are either outlawed, reformd to support the gang or party in power, or coopted.

Robert Paxton is his book 'Anatomy of Fascism' which is a good read for anyone interested in European variants of this age old social disease, defines fascism as '...a form of political behavior marked by obsessive preoccupation with community decline, humiliation, or victimhood and by compensatory cults of unity, energy and purity, in which a mass-based party of committed nationalist militants, working in uneasy but effective collaboration with traditional elites, abandons democratic liberties and pursues with redemptive violence and without ethical or legal restraints goals of internal cleansing and external expansion.'

This aptly describes Islam and Communist movements as well. A key to the fascist movement is the pursuance of Paxton's 'redemptive violence....without legal restraints'. This includes the state's right to destroy all aspects of free speech. All fascist movements ranging from Leninism to Islam, censor free speech. There is no debate or wide ranging discussion. An individual simply supports the state and the party which governs it.

So it is no surprise when Muslims in Western state – acting in concert with their militant Islamic fascist doctrine – take umbrage with criticism and sue the criticasters. No Muslim country after all bothers to ensure freedom of speech. Criticisms of Islam are verboten. Even in Turkey, where Western pro-Muslim fetishers worship at the Turkish idol of Islamic modernity [oh Holy Turkey, thou art so modern!], journalists and those exercising free thought are routinely jailed and tortured.

Nothing reveals a fascist mind more than its desire to limit speech. Nothing reveals a fascist state more than when a government through various organs, decides that some speech is permissible and some is not. Critical of 'fascist' Bush, stupid Americans, greedy Jews and dumb Christians? Go ahead and talk, please talk and elaborate more. Desirous to criticise Islamic fascism, Multi-culturalism, the poverty of 'Native Indian' culture and history; Black culture, Gays, or Rosie O'Donnell – hey hold on! No sorry we can't allow that. That my friend is unacceptable.

The double standard is Orwellian. Here we have governments in the West – a supposedly 'free' set of states – setting up Human Rights Commissions and Human Rights charters. These grandly sounding names are of course canards. They are government agencies. They review 'hate' cases for free. These cases can be brought to their attention by any citizen. Said citizen does not need to pay for the process. He can simply write the Commission, lodge a complaint, explain why, and expect that the vast resources of the state will help him prosecute his target. That is if he is the right sort of person which the state wishes to protect. Minorities, gays, Blacks, Muslims and Natives can apply. No one else need bother.

So if a Gay bashes Christians and hurts their feelings that is okay. If a moron is anti-semitic and postulates that all Jews should die, that is fine. If a Black suggests that all whites are racists and that the white race is a cancer, that is all well and good. But if someone publishes any piece, including articles, books, or cartoons, criticising Muslims, Islam, or any other government protected species, than that will be punishable.

Welcome to Orwell's twisted world where words have no meaning.

In this Orwellian world, these Human Rights Commissions are of course completely unconcerned with rights per se. If they were they might take an interest in cases in the real world, in which a human right has been violated. Human rights stem from natural law, something that the ignoramuses on these government agencies would not know about. Natural law is originally a Christian concept and was fused into early conservative philosophy. Natural law rights include the right to be free, have free speech, own property and have safety of self and family. Natural law rights flow from God, protected by institutions and charters of a free society.

The middling idiots on the various Human Rights Commissions which now populate the Western world, would not know what Natural Law means. They in fact would oppose such an idea. For these Orwellian midgets, the law is the State. The State will determine who gets or does not get various rights. It is the state after all which is the highest expression of order and compliance. If this sounds faintly fascistic, it is because fascism above all else, extols order, state and cultish control, and of course submission. Islam is well named.

When Ezra Levant a former Canadian publisher is ordered to appear before a Human Rights Tribunal, because an extremist 'Canadian' [ahem] Imam takes exception with his magazine publishing the Danish cartoons in Canada, we have a problem.

When Mark Steyn a Canadian author and his magazine are sued by a Canadian based, and tax payer funded, Muslim group for publishing an article quoting Muslim Imams predicting the eventual triumph of Islam across the world thanks to demography and the Muslim baby boom, we have a problem.

When various talk-radio hosts are sued by Islamic groups for hate speech, because they dare criticise Islamo-fascism and dare to quote from Muslim sources to support their points of view, we have a problem.

When Europeans pass laws prohibiting any criticism of Islam, we have a problem.

When governments and their mindless lackeys in 'Rights' Commissions and various governmental departments start to limit free speech, civilisation has a problem.

Fascism can take many forms. Limiting free speech is a hallmark of the fascist tendency. Don't argue just obey! You the unthinking citizen-slave should just pay your taxes, follow orders, submit to authority and shut the hell up. Who are YOU to criticise Islam, government immigration policy, the goverment funding of mosques and Muslim groups, or the state's 'right' to brainwash, propagandize or rewrite history!

You knave, you peon, you hoi-polloi, just follow what the government wants, and obey its multi-cult fetish philosophy. If you do so, they won't punish you or try to destroy you..........Limiting free speech is just another step towards establishing an unfree society of serfs and knaves or worse – a society soon dominated by Muslims, 'famous' of course for their tolerance and propensity to freedom.
