Innuendo Studios explains "White Fascism": when race is defined by what it is not



This is a pretty disturbing topic, but this 22-minute animated slide-show from Innuendo Studios deserves a watch.  It is called “Endnote 2: White Fascism”.


The film takes the position that the top of the triangular pyramid in fascism is whoever wants to be in power because they were in power before.  So the “in group” in a fascist system is defined by what it is not.

That explains the “one drop rule” for mixed race babies in the US, but it also explains the totally irrational idea that “Jews” are not white.  In fact, in the Middle East, most people (Jews and Muslims alike) are and look Caucasian. But “white fascism” as the video explains, defines whiteness by what it is not, and that changes with time as the quest for power gets narrower.

The film does not get into the notion that one's personal tastes in an intimate partner need have political implications (the body fascism idea), even though white fascism condemns intermarriage. However some social justice warriors believe that personal body fascism leads to political fascism. 

At the end, the film examines whether the Trump administration is fascist -- and is this a matter of intent? 

I can remember this as a boy, that many of the terms being thrown around by my elders did add up as making logical or consistent sense.
   
You can have an effective conservative YouTube channel and discuss "conservative" ideas without sounding "fascist" by simply not attacking anyone or any other groups.  Discuss the principles only, not the people. Stay away from "them" below "us", from the tribalism.
