I have two sons, ages 10 and 12; like most parents, I couldn’t be more proud of my kids, and I cherish every moment I have with them. I work non-stop, often 16+ hour days, and I do my best to still make time to spend with my family (sleep is overrated). My boys attend a Christian school, and they are both getting to the ages in their education where they are having to do a fair amount of research for their assignments. When I was their age, we had encyclopedias as our main source of information; now, our kids have the modern-day equivalent, Wikipedia. This is where we run into a huge problem. Wikipedia is a lunatic leftist by every measure; they don’t just lean left, they have fully fallen into the socialist left-wing agenda, and it’s no secret.
Let’s take the term fascism as an example. Most everyone talks about fascism as a far-right political ideology. I disagree with this statement and I want to tell you why using Wikipedia.
Here are some of the bullet points I pulled from Wikipedia regarding Fascism:
Fascism is a far-right, authoritarian, ultranationalist political ideology and movement, characterized by a dictatorial leader, centralized autocracy, militarism, forcible suppression of opposition, belief in a natural social hierarchy, subordination of individual interests for the perceived good of the nation and race, and strong regimentation of society and the economy.
A military citizenship arose in which all citizens were involved with the military in some manner. The war resulted in the rise of a powerful state capable of mobilizing millions of people to serve on the front lines and providing logistics to support them, as well as having unprecedented authority to intervene in the lives of citizens.
Fascists often advocate for the establishment of a totalitarian one-party state, and for a dirigiste economy, with the principal goal of achieving autarky (national economic self-sufficiency) through protectionist and economic interventionist policies. Fascism’s extreme authoritarianism and nationalism often manifests as belief in racial purity or a master race, usually blended with some variant of racism or bigotry against a demonized “Other,” such as Jews.
Now I need to start off with a very important point regarding fascism; in Europe, fascism may be considered right-wing, but it’s not actually “right-wing” by American political standards. If you look at the quote above from Wikipedia’s definition of fascism, does this look like modern-day right-wing politics in America?
When does the American right-wing push for authoritarian, dictatorial leadership, centralized autocracy, militarism, forcible suppression of opposition, belief in social hierarchy, subordination of individual interests for the perceived good of the nation and race, etc.? This is precisely the goal of the American LEFT. J6 anyone? How about the Twitter files, censorship, the FBI, and Russiagate sound?…
