Clearly, they are a collection of people.
That "collection of people", according to the Supreme Court's ruling, is a "person".

Correction for the NON-reader. I posted EDUCATORS...see, that isn't "educatION"...can you see the difference in those big giant words???

Reading history will be tough but if you do you will find that Fascists attacked educaTORS.. DUH! JUST LIKE THE REPUBLICANS AND TEABAGGERS DO!

and yes symbolism...like "hope and change" and "yes we can"
and unions are corporations


liberals = progressives = fascists
See above for the difference between the word "educatOR" and educaTION"....


"""fascist were pro-union...they were against private unions ""


LOL! Make up your mind!


Facists, just like Republicans and Teabaggers, hate unions because they give the average working AMERICAN power....Fascists, just like REPUBLICANS and Teabaggers, do NOT want the average American to have power or wealth because you can't dominate a country where average citizens have power.



Fascists were AGAINST abortion just like Republicans and Teabaggers because it is a form of CONTROL.


"""and yes symbolism...like "hope and change" and "yes we can"


No, they were for FORCED symbolism just like Repugs and TeaBAGGERS...FORCE people to say silly PLedges to prove their loyalty, FORCE people to wear pins....we're not talking slogans....but FORCED symbolism...like standing , making an arm motion when the anthem is played and vilifying those who do not fall in line....



Sorry, but lack of knowledge of history and facts doesn't make your misguided argument that Liberals are fascists...the Repugs are PROUD of their similarities.

So, banning/outlawing trade unions, strong military, ultra-nationalism, one race, one religion, "God", anti-secularism, support for corporations over the people, support for the rich and the elite over the poor and against the minorities, anti-immigration are progressive ideas?

Where in the world do you live?

Then perhaps you should read up on real history before giving me Glen Becks opinion. Hitler only got 33% of the vote, in order to form a government the RIGHT WOING CORPORATIONS, Thyssen, Krupp etc. had their attorney Prescott Bush, negotiation the backing of the Right Wing Partys they controlled. In return Hitler had to crush his own peoples army, the SA and purge the socialists and labor leaders within his party.

Fritz Thyssen was the equivalent of the Koch Brothers and of course the Bush famil was what it still is.

Group rights preclude individual rights.

Sinclair lewis is often given credit for saying "Fascism will come to America wrapped in a flag and carrying a bible....but he didn't.

Halford E. Luccock, in Keeping Life Out of Confusion (1938): When and if fascism comes to America it will not be labeled "made in Germany"; it will not be marked with a swastika; it will not even be called fascism; it will be called, of course, "Americanism."

Someone in 1971 remarked about Lewis: "Sinclair Lewis aptly predicted in It Can't Happen Here that if fascism came to America it would come wrapped in the flag and whistling 'The Star Spangled Banner.'"


But the idea is the same....and ACCURATE.


Now, since the Repugs think all liberals and Democrats don't follow the bible and we hate the flag...that leaves the Repugs to carry the bible and they already have wrapped themselves in the flag(pin)
