The best lack all conviction while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

W.B. Yates

The Second Coming

I have invented a new word. I hope it will eventually become a word of a year. A Y2012 perhaps? Fasheism- fascism with good intentions. Sort of the one with a feminine touch (no sexism, here, I'll explain later). Malice out of goodness in heart. Atrocity for your own sake. Death to make you happy and safe. Inquisition. Hypocrisy. Moronic Evil.

What are we going to do with Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, etc? Do you recognize the question? This is the most popular question nowadays in the US. Not in Europe though. Sounds rather strange. Why don't the Europeans debate that on their talkshows? We do, they don't. It is only when some of ours appears they follow the lead. But sometimes they react like that MP George Galloway, the Lion from Glasgow who gave our senators quite a thrashing when he came to talk to them in Congress in the Y2005 (I am not sure about the exact date). I watched the interaction between then senator Norm Coleman and that man and one of them was a man and another was ..a senator from the US. We have a new species here-senators and House people and they are anything but human. The Lion returned to Glasgow to the crowd of supporters and Norm Coleman, the unfortunate, lost his seat to Al Franken. I hope Al stays human.

So why don't the Europeans debate that question? It is because the know that lie cannot lead to the truth. They know that such question was posted out before. It was debated in the Nazi Germany after conquering most of Europe and part of the Soviet Union. It was openly discussed in the Nazi newspapers: what we will do to them now?

Oh no, the German media did not call their troops occupiers. They called them liberators. They said that the noble German soldier brought the New Order, Ordnung, to the barbaric people of the East. They wrote that those Slavs, Greeks or even French who would embrace that new order would eventually become happy in serving the interests of the German Empire. They wrote that as soon as those nations get rid of the bad influence of Jews and other agents of decay they would flourish (up to a certain point, of course) under the gentle but severe ruling from Berlin. They also wrote that the rogue elements of those conquered nations who for some reason would resist the transformation would be labeled partisanen, terrorists, enemy combatants and as such if captured would not have a POW status. Moreover, their families would be severely punished. Not many people know that French officers who joined the Free France or fought against Germany in the Russian air force were risking execution if captured; also many of their relatives in France suffered deadly consequences. Not many people know that ALL Russian civilians who took up arms because of the German atrocities were subject to collective punishment: burning their villages with people in them, summary executions, public hanging even public torture. Of course, it was for the good of those occupied; that's how the new masters were demonstrating their tough love.

So the Europeans have the reference point. Fascism can happen anywhere, said Slavomir Mrojeck, but Germans were the classics. That's why when in Europe they hear that hypocritical rant they cringe and do not participate. They learned the lesson of feeling superior. They remember the 'roasted meat of the white brothers' as Alexander Block, the Russian poet predicted; they remember the Russian armies surrounding Berlin and Russian parade on Nov. 7 1945 when their banners, the banners of the superpeople were thrown down at the Lenin's Mausoleum. They paid dearly for arrogance. Now they are smarter.

Not us. We practice fasheism. We paw and paw the people we invaded, killed their leaders, burned their towns, bombed their weddings. Our behavior resembles the behavior of a cat who plays with the half-dead mouse before eating it. Hillary Clinton is 'pleased' with the way Karzai wants to fight corruption. Hear, hear! Heinrich Himmler is pleased with the way Pierre Laval wants to fight the Le Resistance. Come to think of it, in the current Afghanistan corruption is the only normal thing happening. If you have a government installed by the occupier buying out its minions is the perfect way to live and for them- to take bribes is the perfect way to stay a part of the society. What would we do if there was a foreign-installed government in Washington DC?

We call them corrupt. They didn't ask for our invasion. Now we call them names. And hey, media plays on it. Everything for the superiority Americana. We bring the Ordnung now to the barbarians and those of them who do not like it--they are terrorists, they must not be considered as humans. So when our new President who had not lost a humble feeling of being human wants a 9/11 trial to take place, a real trial- the only thing which differs us from animals-he immediately has to suck to the howling monkeys and announce that 'the public will be happy if the accused get the death penalty.To Hell with the Magna Carta and Roman Law principles! In one phrase our former professor of the Constitutional Law buried the whole thing and we are up to the Brave New World.

But maybe he knows what he says? Maybe he tested us and we came out too light? Isn't it true that we have forgotten everything? We forgot the judicial coup of the Y2000. We forgot that 9/11 could be prevented. We forgot the 'little goat' President. We forgot that right after 9/11 Bush prevented any proper investigation by announcing it to be an act of war. We forgot how quickly was the crime scene cleaned. We forgot the European statements that Al- Qaeda never existed. We forgot the Truthers (BTW, where are all of them now?) We forgot how in the Y2003 Bush did not even blink to send troops to Iraq right after the Columbia tragedy. We forgot the young teenage Iraqi boy shown on MTV a day before invasion (we knew the day!), playing music right before the 'Shock and Awe.' We forgot the grandson of Saddam Hussein killed without mercy. We forgot mountains of victims. We forgot how we were shown the invasion on TV the same way Hitler forced his citizens to watch the propaganda documentaries. But at least there they were told to watch. We did it voluntarily. We forgot and we are helped to continue forgetting. Haled Sheikh Mohammed does not have a name anymore. He is HSM now. If we execute him we will 'dismantle the HSM'. It sounds like decommissioning a robot.

So what are we to expect in NY? Tea-party crowds marching on Manhattan with the demands for the death sentence? Michelle Bachmann waving a flag at the Ground Zero? Obama performing a special prayer to Jesus in the White House to prove that he is not a Moslem after all? GOP town meetings with Sarah Palin there adopting resolutions demanding no mercy? Cheney coming out of a woodwork with his vampire grin? Will anyone remember the justice? Will anyone mention that the actual truth is more important than anything. Will anyone honor the victims of 9/11 by the professional investigation? Will anyone be reasonable?

So far the hopes are scarce. Major Hasan had killed 13 people and immediately Sarah and Co. announced that to be a terrorist act. Any mentioning that Ft Hood was a place of mass killings before is shunned. Moreover, the issue of profiling is coming back and the prominent Moslem figures of the US have to comfort the US public on TV that Moslems are not 'that bad'. Hey, people why never before we had that? Even in the times of the worst riots and bigotry we never had any black leaders coming out on TV and comforting the public by saying that 'Negroes are not that dangerous.' Imagine Rev. Sharpton in that role. Moslems seem to be deprived even of the dignity to say 'F&^k you.' That's fasheism- not only we conduct rape but we do not want to hear even a slightest complaint from the rape victim. We present the rape as an act of love. Those 13 people in reality are not the victims of terrorism --they are the casualties of the war in Iraq;only now they show us the coffins while before they didn't. In a normal army the supervisors of Major Hasan should be dishonorably discharged for the lack of professionalism: they bluntly ignored the unfortunate deterioration of the man under their command. In our atmosphere of fasheism- we get a Congressional (!) investigation with notorious Joe, the Lover-Lieberman at the helm. Good luck in that department. Another circle of rape/love--fasheism--style.

Rape/love. The current House Healthcare Bill has a Nuremberg provision in it, actually several. The statement about forbidding of the usage of the federal money for abortions automatically singles out women as a subjects of special legislative(!) restrictions. That's a Nazi law. Hitler and Stalin are the sponsors of it, make no mistake. Not only in both totalitarian societies abortion was forbidden but as both of those societies had socialized medicine that meant total restriction of the state funding. BTW, Hitler also forbade Jewish doctors to practice among pure Germans. Just a side effect, you know. Stalin did not have financial leverages-so he just bluntly ordered to put any doctor who performed an abortion t to jail for 10 years. Tell that to congressman Stupak. Let him hang the portraits of both his predecessors on the wall of his office. Let those colleagues of his who drafted the draconian anti-immigrant provisions in that Bill also hang those portraits.
