Mr. Trump, Tear down those Fascist Statues!

September 24, 2017

We at Watching the Watchdogs do our best to follow developing trends in American culture, and in light of recent events surrounding the removal of Confederate statues and other symbols around the country, we believe that half-measures are not enough. The time is ripe for pulling down hate-filled iconography wherever it rears its ugly head.

Thanks to an informative Wikipedia entry, our eyes have been opened to a haunting menace that, when examined closely, explains so much of the strife that is tearing our great nation apart. The root of the problem is the fascis.

Merriam-Webster defines the fascis as “a bundle of rods and among them an ax with projecting blade borne before ancient Roman magistrates as a badge of authority.” One need look no further than the Roman Empire to trace back to the origins of many of the evils that plague the world to this day and fasces were the symbol of that power.

Americans of a certain age will remember that the fascis was the symbol of Benito Mussolini’s thuggish dictatorship and is the root of the very word fascism itself!

Here we see the arch-fiend himself, while Mrs. Mussolini schleps his personal fascis like some pitiful propagandistic caddie. She assumes her rightful place, three paces behind her husband, while fanning the Duce with a palm frond. Love. Honor. Obey.

Below are the Mussolini’s personal flag, on the left and the flag of his Blackshirt goons on the right.

Mussolini came to power in Italy in 1922 and was Hitler’s idol and mentor. When Hitler became the German Chancellor a decade later it wasn’t long before the Italian fascis and the Nazi swastika were paraded through the streets, side-by-side. Fascism and Nazism have been linked in infamy ever since.

With the exception of a relatively tiny group of cognitive troglodytes, there are few thinking people who would walk about sporting a swastika today, and certainly no government organizations would openly align themselves with Hitler’s evil hakenkreuz.

And yet, unbelievably, Mussolini’s icon of hate sneeringly flaunts its presence from within the most sacred cathedrals of American freedom.

Ensconced within the phallocentric obelisk in the District of Columbia that is the Washington Monument, we find the former slave owner himself, leaning on a fascis for support, as the symbol of his alleged moral superiority and privilege.

An identical effigy stands in the Virginia Capitol in Richmond, the very capital of the hated Confederacy to which the arch-criminal-traitors Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson pledged their undying allegiance! Coincidence??

Perched high atop the dome of the United States Capitol building is a cynically named statue of Freedom, literally surrounded by Fascist iconography. Somewhere in darkest depths of Hell, Il Duce is having hearty laugh.

And gazing gleefully down the National Mall at this mockery of all we hold dear, is the Stalin-esque statue of Abraham Lincoln, resting each hand on a fascis, skulking within the confines of the memorial that bears his name.

Think people! This Fascist imagery is on our very money! IT MUST GO…

Think of the children.

Behold! The seals of the United States Tax Court AND the National Guard Bureau! Fascism’s dark shadow has even polluted our much-beloved tax system and tainted the honor of our modern-day Minutepersons.

Was the suffering and sacrifice at Lexington and Concord all for this?

And while the Mile-High potheads of Colorado pretend to a progressiveness they obviously clandestinely despise,  they show their true nature at the highest levels.

Don’t even get us started on the satanic All-Seeing-Eye. Where Fascists roam with impunity, can Shriners lurk far behind, with their smirking little cars, their RED fezzes and Illuminati-funded children’s hospitals?

Even the great Borough of Brooklyn, in which one-in-four citizens are Jewish, lies under the yoke of Mussolini’s malignant tumor.

Perhaps most shocking of all, the lintel above the door to the Oval Office is besmirched by Fascism’s blood-stained bludgeon. Is nothing sacred?

(Cast not the first stone… your candidates passed through this unholy portal every day of their administrations too.)

Naturally, there will be hate-filled trolls who will leap to the defense of the fasces. “Culture, not calumny!” is their rallying cry, and some will be duped by their litanies of revisionist histories and junk science. “Even the Boy Scouts of America once embraced the swastika, and they’re not Nazis.”

BSA Swastika

And the even more laughable, “You cannot judge historical beliefs by today’s standards!”

The hell you can’t. A hate sign sign is a hate sign is a hate sign. They knew what they meant.

Besides, this is the same BSA that openly declared that “all avowed homosexuals” lacked the morals to be Scouts or Scout Leaders and actively banned them from the paramilitary organization for a decade-and-a-half.

The Boy Scouts looked toward the swastika and the swastika looked toward the fascis.

“Seig Heil, Kamerad!”

And so, we at Watching the Watchdogs have determined that the blight of Fascism must be blotted from America’s public spaces and institutions once and for all. Let the haters remove their hate-filled iconography to some hateful Museum of Hate, if they must, but removed they shall be!

We will be creating an online petition at Change.org and other important vectors of social change forthwith, as well as a GoFundMe site to allow for the transportation of Antifascist warriors to-and-from critical rallies and protests.

Other funds will be set aside as prizes for a “Best Chant” and “Pithiest Placard Platitude” contest. Details to follow.

We also firmly believe that the National Agents of Truth at the Southern Poverty Law Center will soon turn their litigious wrath and enormous cash reserves toward the eradication of this unspeakable horror, just as they have with their lucrative anti-Confederate campaign.

President Trump, some claim that you must be a faithful Watching the Watchdogs reader. We beseech you to dip deeply into your pool of righteous rightness and lead the charge to cleanse our nation of the hateful images that have brought so much suffering to so many for so long.

Mr. Trump, tear down these hate-filled statues!
