Pretty-boy Democrat Presidential hopeful John Edwards has a blog. I am not sure who is allowed to post on it but someone has a very interesting post there. I imagine that it could get deleted so I will reproduce it in full:

Progressive Populists Unite!

2/14/2007 at 5:44 PM EST

In the late 19th century a wonderful movement emerged in our great nation. A populist movement, that eventually merged with the Democratic Party in the 1896 election with William Jennings Bryan as its figurehead. This was largely a movement of agrarian radicals in the South and Midwest, but its principles of economic justice, anti-corporatism, and political accountability still remain in the American psyche. Also during this time, groups like the Farmers Alliance (which was known for its strong inclusive stance on race) and the Knights of Labor were formed.

This all occurred during the time of the Gilded Age. Well, it appears we are in the New Gilded Age, an age where the rich and poor grow further apart. An age where it seems more difficult for working families and middle-class families to have some sense of economic security. Those progressive populists of the 1880s and 1890s help to change the national consciousness. We need a similar change right now in America. John Edwards is the candidate who can bring that change right now. 21st century progressive populists need to unite behind his campaign now!


So what is wrong with that? Only the fact that the "Progressives" of around a century ago whom the writer praises were proto-Fascists. They were war-mongering antisemites, lovers of Aryans, oppressors of blacks, believed in government regulation of just about everything etc.

Weighing the national character: "One hears much admiration from politicians of the American 'national character,' by which seems to be meant the aggregate of prevailing values of the majority of the population. I gather that Americans tend to regard their national character as comprising such things as freedom, independence, individualism, and self-reliance. One thinks of Daniel Boone or Marlboro Man. In fact we no longer have these qualities and probably never will again. Generally we now embody their opposites. Modern society has become a hive of largely conformist, closely regulated and generally helpless employees who depend on others for nearly everything. ... What then is the national character today? I think we are first an obedient people. We submit."

Save the Mandeans: "The war in Iraq has let loose extreme supremacists who seek to murder anyone not of their faith. Iraq is being torn apart by religious wars in which the supremacists are killing not only those of a different sect of Islam but also Christians and other religious minorities. A little known ancient religion in Iraq is in danger of being totally exterminated: Mandaeanism. Mandaeans date back to New Testament times as a branch of the Gnostic movement related to early Christianity. The Mandaeans regard John the Baptist as their great teacher. According to the article, Who Are the Mandaens? by Julie Abadirad, they lived "in the lands of the lower Euphrates, the lower Tigris , the rivers that surround the Shatt-al-Arab, and in the adjacent Iranian Province of Khuzistan (once called Arabistan)." Portuguese monks called them Christians of Saint John because of their baptismal rites, although the Mandaeans are not Christians."

Muslim girl lost in poker game: "A teenage girl in southern Pakistan, whose late father lost her in a poker game when she was two years old, has asked authorities to save her from being handed over to a middle-aged relative. Rasheeda, 17, said she has filed applications with the police and a local councillor asking them to prevent Lal Haider, 45, from taking her to his home. Her mother, Nooran said her husband racked up a debt of 10,000 rupees ($190) to Haider playing cards. "My husband didn't have money to pay, and instead he told Lal Haider that he could take Rasheeda when she grows up," she said. Despite being paid his money last year, she said Haider still insisted the girl should be given to him because of tribal customs."



"Why should the German be interested in the liberation of the Jew, if the Jew is not interested in the liberation of the German?... We recognize in Judaism, therefore, a general anti-social element of the present time... In the final analysis, the emancipation of the Jews is the emancipation of mankind from Judaism.... Indeed, in North America, the practical domination of Judaism over the Christian world has achieved as its unambiguous and normal expression that the preaching of the Gospel itself and the Christian ministry have become articles of trade... Money is the jealous god of Israel, in face of which no other god may exist". Who said that? Hitler? No. It was Karl Marx. See also here and here.

The Big Lie of the late 20th century was that Nazism was Rightist. It was in fact typical of the Leftism of its day. It was only to the Right of Stalin's Communism. The very word "Nazi" is a German abbreviation for "National Socialist" (Nationalsozialistisch) and the full name of Hitler's political party (translated) was "The National Socialist German Workers' Party".
