Defining the characteristics of Fascism
Fascism as anti-Democratic and as a form of tyranny
1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism
2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights.
3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause -- racial, ethnic, or religious minorities, liberals; communists, socialists, etc.
4. Supremacy of the military/avid militarism; abortion.
5. Rampant sexism: male dominated divorce; abortion, homosexual and women’s rights are suppressed.
6. Religion and government are intertwined.
7. Corporate power is protected.
8. Labor power is suppressed. Labor unions are either eliminated entirely.
9. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption.
10. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts; open hostility to higher education and academia.
11. Fraudulent Elections; literally removing locally elected officials from towns and cities, install puppet leaders (town managers.)
Number 3 really has the posters flaming Karen Janbaz as their unifying cause. They seem to be enamored with number 5 as well.
Doubtful if they will recognize that their behavior has become fascist.
Keep on talking chunky monkey!

you are rabid anti-Semitic and anti-Christian. You support a military nuclear capable Iran, the destruction of Israel and think old people should be done away with because they are a drain on society.

All of these views you have expressed over and over again
And the downside to all this is ?
Israel stole all the land. They should be quietly removed to camps again.
Old people are a drain in society. That ain't news.

Facts are just hard for some to face.

London and Brighton are not so far from me.
I know three bar staff from three separate pubs (not gay pubs) that go to those parades.

Christianity started with 12 guys ant their prophet, goups always start out small and grown over time.

We attract more people everyday and I think you are a shining example of that . YOU spend more of your time on an atheist forum than you do in church, doing charity work or talking with your fellow Chirstians. How about that! It would seem you are our biggest fan.

Fools? We don't spend our time speaking to our imagineary friends. We consider that to be foolish.

Again, there is a reason you are and have always been a fringe group. The reason? You are wacko. Good luck on your quest to change the minds of 80% of America.

We arent trying to change anyone's mind.

We want them to think for themselves.

We arent going after certian number of people or $$$ like religion does.

Its FREE to be an atheist!

Oh believe me we are thinking for ourselves and our conclusions just drive you crazy.

If you think being a Christian means you aren't free then you have no idea what being a Christian means.

We're more like 20% of the population, retard.

And O'Reilly? Seriously? That douche? He is under contractual obligation to lie-- as such, he cannot tell the truth under high financial penalties.

Or so it appears; that would at least explain why he never-ever says anything factual.

In America atheist fall between 5%-9% with Oregon having the highest percentage per state capita. In Australia atheist range from 10%-20% per capita. Parts of Europe and then up to 50% of Russia identify themselves as confirmed atheist.

----------

O'Reilly gives his opinion which you may or may not agree with, he also has people of different opinions on his show, he is paid because he has a loyal following which value his opinion. That also follows through to his numerous NYT best sellers, books which most have been turned into movies all have been critically acclaimed and profitable. You call him derogatory names but your one voice negative out of many who respect his work. Since his show has started if memory serves me correct he has been #1 on his time slot for cable news program, which is like 15 years straight. He is a strong supporter of the Roman Catholic Church perhaps that is where you have the greatest disagreement with him since he also has pointed out the systematic 'War on Christmas' numerous times on his show?

The statement you made that he lies is highly debatable since he has a research team which analyses the factual veracity of his content prior to any airing of material. I have watched his program when he would make a correction on air usually with his talking points segment where apparently he made a statement of fact when there was a update to information that he wasn't aware of prior to show's air.

Another profitable and interesting show O'Reilly does is the tour he and Dennis Miller engage in which travels all across America. Whatever you may think about Bill O'Reilly he is a Harvard graduate and has carved a niche for himself in the very competitive world of t.v. journalism and he been incredibly successful.

What are your accomplishments?
