Fascist Anyone? Guess Who’s a Fascist?

One of my brothers posted this TEST on Facebook.  I was going to answer, but since he won’t speak to me already,  I thought it best not to upset him anymore.  So, take the TEST, and see if you agree with my guess.

“Take the following test. Read these 14 characteristics and guess the leader I am describing:

1. Powerful Nationalism
2. Identification of enemies as a unifying cause.
3. Supremacy of the Military
4. Rampant Sexism
5. Controlled Mass Media
6. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights
7. Obsession with National Security
8. Religion and Government are intertwined
9. Corporate Power is Protected
10. Labor power is supressed
11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts
12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment
13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption
14. Fradulent Elections

The answer:

“Political scientist Dr. Lawrence Britt wrote an article about fascism (“Fascism Anyone?,” Free Inquiry, Spring 2003, page 20). Studying the fascist regimes of Hitler (Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Franco (Spain), Suharto (Indonesia), and Pinochet (Chile), Dr. Britt found they all had 14 elements in common. He calls these the identifying characteristics of fascism. “

Happy Friday everyone!”

My guess: George Washington:

  1. Yup – he needed America to become strong and self reliant, not rely on Great Britain for any of our needs.
  2. Yup – he united every Colonist to rise up, take up arms and fight for our Country
  3. Yup – Duh, you think George figured we needed military supremacy to win the war?
  4. Sorry, he were old school, women didn’t fight, they loaded the guns and took care of the children – fortunately, times have changed around the world.
  5. Well, there wasn’t any, but I would bet if there was a newspaper that condemned our fight for Independence, George  would have shut it down.
  6. Doesn’t really apply, but he was fighting for our human rights, and we needed to fight anyone that was against us.  We fought an unconventional war, hid behind trees and shot and ran to another position; I’m sure the World viewed us as having distain for Human Rights, we didn’t fight according to the standards at the time – – –
  7. Yup – was George obsessed with our security, we went to War for our security.
  8. Yup – God appeared everywhere.  He truly believed that we needed God’s help to win the war, and to be part of every aspect of our government. God is in Every document that America wrote; from Day One.
  9. Not too many corporations, but he did seek financial help  from wealthy businessman.
  10. Not too sure how this might apply, we did ask for people to stop working and take up arms, we also started conscription, so, we showed military service was more important than staying at home and working.
  11. No, George was really interested in those area’s.  Not all Fascists are exactly the same.
  12. Not sure what this means, did George believe in punishment that fits the crime, yes.
  13. Rampant, I think George relied upon people he knew and could trust. ( I think my little brother was thinking about all our current politicians).
  14. Does this mean that there are fraudulent elections, or does it mean paranoid about the possibility of this occurring?  I think all government think about stopping voter fraud and political corruption – but not in George’s case, he didn’t want to become President, but agreed to when he was convinced that his country needed him.

So, do you agree with my guess?

I'm all about people. Love to read and re-think about Politics and how it impacts people in their daily lives. I offer my opinion, just as anyone should, for the belief if we all talk about what matters to us, we will find a solution we can agree upon.
