You Might Be a Semi-Fascist ...

Updated: Aug 30, 2022

Last week, President Biden coined the term semi-fascist. Unfortunately, no one has been able to define the term. Even CNN's fawning Don Lemon got frustrated with Karine Jean-Pierre, the president's spokesperson, when she couldn't provide one.


So, as a public service, and with apologies to Jeff Foxworthy, here is our attempt to help:

If you use the FBI to invade the home of your primary political opponent - you might be a semi-fascist.


If you hire 87,000 more armed federal tax agents to investigate and intimidate fellow citizens - you might be a semi-fascist.


If you believe, as did Mussolini (the OF), that everything should be within the State, nothing should be against the State, nothing should be outside the State (as most Democrats do) - you might be a semi-fascist.


If you relish imposing draconian controls over people based loosely on the Crisis du Jour - you might be a semi-fascist.


If you pretend otherwise, but actually like inflation, because it gives you an excuse to centralize more power - you might be a semi-fascist.


If you use federal law enforcement to "warn" social media companies to be "on the lookout" for "misinformation" to suppress right before an election - you might be a semi-fascist.


If you leverage one isolated incident of vandalism of the Capitol to crack down on your political opponents - you might be a semi-fascist. (see "Can You Name This Event?")


If you co-opt the mainstream press such that they get editorial approval from the Senate majority leader - you might be a semi-fascist.


If you distort medical science to further your social agenda - you might be a semi-fascist.


If you change election rules to make elections less secure - you might be a semi-fascist.


If you love destroying the lives of anyone who disagrees with you through doxxing and cancellation - you might be a semi-fascist.


If you freeze the bank accounts of people who simply donate to a peaceful cause they believe in - you might be a (Canadian) semi-fascist.


If you ignore the constitution and effectively rob the defenseless poor to forgive the debts of your current and potential supporters - you might be a semi-fascist.


If, with a straight face, you employ Big Lies* like "we are not in a recession" and "men can give birth" - you might be a semi-fascist.


If you are obsessively focused on race - you might be a semi-fascist.


If you insist every child should be sent to a state-run school to be politically and socially indoctrinated - you might be a semi-fascist.


If you don't jail violent criminals, but you do jail political dissidents - you might be a semi-fascist.


If you want to run citizens out of the state you govern just because they disagree with you - you might be a semi-fascist (right, Kathy?)


If you love Planned Parenthood and its eugenicist origins - you might be a semi-fascist.


If, like the "Squad," you are virulently anti-Israel - you might be a semi-fascist.


If you constantly try to "other" anyone who disagrees with you by labeling them "extremists" ... or "semi-fascists" - YOU might be the semi-fascist.


(...and you might even drop the semi)






* This is Nazi propaganda leader Joseph Goebbels himself describing the "Big Lie":


"The ... secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness ... follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous."
