Fascism in the open
The stranglehold that the Left have on American education strives to ensure that no part of history that might embarrass the Left becomes generally known. The slogan in the graphic above would never have been used except that a knowledge of Benito Mussolini has been thoroughly anaesthetized. Mussolini invented the word Fascism to convey exactly what Mrs Clinton is conveying. He was a scholarly man who knew his history and he knew that the symbol of authority in ancient Rome was a bundle of rods called a Fasces borne by the lictors. The image was that the bundle was much stronger than any single rod it contains. In historical terms, then, Mrs Clinton is quite explicitly a Fascist. She has chosen as her theme the central message of Italian Fascism.
And in their intolerance of dissent, the Left are getting close to another great Fascist slogan: Mussolini ha sempre ragione (Mussolini is always right).
