American Fascist Movement

I'm having a hard time deciding whether or not the website of the American Fascist Movement is meant to be a joke. If it is real, then it presents an incredibly watered-down, warm-and-fuzzy version of fascism. But since the site mainly consists of old (untranslated) speeches by Franco, as well as samples of really bad marching band music from the '30s, I'm suspecting that it's all some kind of joke. The site is registered to 'Danny Duce', which must be a play on 'Il Duce'. If it is real, then I guess we can be thankful that it's probably not going to inspire many people to convert to fascism.

Are you sure it's not Il Bona Duce? That would explain the Danny part. I know Lori Partridge was a Marxist-Leninist, and Keith was a Pedestrian, but I don't think Il Danny was a fascist. Mr. Kinkaid, sheah. He'd be the fascist, if we're placing bets.

I doubt this is a joke. I've been dealing with national socialists, neo-nazis, fake skinheads and all other kinds of people like this for years. They tend to be borderline retarded and take themselves very seriously, despite the fact that everyone is laughing at them. They inevitably make the rest of us look bad.

Are you saying that Danny Bonaduce is retarded?

The kid who played drums, maybe. the lazy-lidded little sister who banged the tambourine, without a doubt. I think she got one too many drumstix upside the head.

Obviously fake. Just a bunch of pathetic Fascist wannabees.

REAL, that is.

Cripes, Big Gary. I looked at that link for five minutes before I realized who it's for. I thought you were aiming us to some paramilitary cabal bent on world conquest. Then I thought: you are.

Is that the one with Danny Bonaduce?

Gary, in the future you should give everyone a 'not safe for work' or 'disturbing content' warning before linking to a site like that. Scared the life out of me when I opened that up.

Sorry, Alex, I guess it would have been more appropriate to preface that with some kind of disclaimer like, "Sane people may find this objectionable."

Well, I'm over the shock now, but my cat is still hiding beneath the sink too frightened to come out.

It suprises you that there are idiots running around saying htat facisism is great? Look at
http://www.protestwarrior.com/videos/answer_infiltrated.php for what really goes on behind the doors of some of these groups, the type of people who are fighting against "a ... process initiated by the ultra right-wing foreign policy team in the White House and the Pentagon who seek to overthrow the Cuban government"

Thank you, Drunk Stepdad, for that plug for an even more pathetic bunch of Fascist wannabees (who, alas, happen to be neighbors of mine) and their unbelievably childish and annoying "Protest Warrior" front group.

I have to tell you, I NEVER get tired of that same old joke about Republicans being fascist.
*yawn*

Chadds, what makes you think it's a joke?
Posted by Big Gary C  in  Dallas, Texas  on  Tue Feb 08, 2005  at  01:37 PM
Ha! - See? THAT's funny (really, this time).
Posted by Chadds Ford Prefect  on  Tue Feb 08, 2005  at  01:58 PM
Yeah, calling Republicans fascists is about as funny as calling elephants pachyderms or calling granite an igneous rock.

Big G, Rush and Bill call themselves "moderates". I wonder what groovy drugs those two are smoking.

I'm not 100% in line with Protest Warrior. But I gotta hand it to a group that gets the anti-capatalist cuban loving socalists in such a tisy. I just love when the left wingers try to silence them by ripping down their signs, and threatening them with violence. Quite a facist thing to do, isn't it?
Posted by Drunk Stepdad  on  Tue Feb 08, 2005  at  09:08 PM
The "Protest Wrrriors" certainly do their best to provoke legitimate activists, but the real protesters seldom take the bait.
The ripping down signs and so forth happens mostly in their imagination.
If they have pictures of that happening on their website (I'm not curious enough to look), they probably staged it themselves.
By the way, despite what they say, their primary target is not leftists, it's antiwar activists.

The REAL Fascist Movement for the US can be found at http://www.fascistmovement.com. The AFM is watered down crap.

You people are all blinded by continous liberal brain washing! True Fascism no longer exists as an organized political movement. True Fascism was a product Mussolini's ideology (and company) and is gone forever. He screwed things up by going to war and associating himself with that nut Hitler who practiced a warped form of Fascism called Nazi-ism. True Fascism only remains in ones heart!

Do you know who the greatest murderer of all times was? The American President harry Truman who in a millionth of a second killed over 150,000 innocent civilians and wounded and left to die a slow painfuil death hundreds aof thousands more! The US is not a Democracy it's a Repubblic run by greedy Senators, not much different thatn the pre-Empire Roman Republic, and your freedom here is based on how much $$ is in you pocket, not on the constitution! Bottom line! VIVA IL FASCISMO!
