Fierce, funny, and controversial, Jonah Goldberg’s 1 New York Times bestseller traces fascism back to its surprising roots–in liberalism. Calling someone a fascist is the fastest way to shut them up, defining their views as beyond the political pale. But who are the real fascists in our midst?
Liberal Fascism – Wikipédia, a enciclopédia livre
Liberal Fascism offers a startling new perspective on ggoldberg theories and practices that define fascist politics. Replacing conveniently manufactured myths with surprising and enlightening research, Jonah Goldberg reminds us that the original fascists were really on the left, and that liberals from Woodrow Wilson to FDR to Hillary Clinton have advocated policies and principles remarkably similar to those of Hitler’s National Socialism and Mussolini’s Fascism.
They believed in free health care and guaranteed jobs. They confiscated inherited wealth and spent vast sums on public education. They purged the church from public policy, promoted a new form of pagan spirituality, and inserted the authority of the state into every nook and cranny of daily life. The Nazis declared war on smoking, supported abortion, euthanasia, and gun control. They loathed the free market, provided generous pensions for the elderly, and maintained a strict racial quota system in their universities—where campus speech esqjerda were all the rage.
The Nazis led the world ffascismo organic farming and alternative medicine. Hitler was a strict vegetarian, and Himmler was an animal rights activist. Yet it is hard to deny that modern progressivism and classical fascism shared the same intellectual roots.

German Jews were rounded up inand Jews in Italy were rounded up in A few writers will casually mention, in parenthetical asides, that until Italy passed its race laws there were actually Jews serving in the Italian government and the Fascist Party.
But such inconvenient facts are usually skipped over as quickly as possible. More likely, your understanding of these issues comes from such sources as the Oscar—winning film Life Is Beautiful2 which can be summarized as follows: Fascism arrived in Italy and, a few months later, so did the Nazis, who carted off the Jews.
As for Mussolini, he was a bombastic, goofy—looking, but highly effective dictator who made the trains run on time. All of this amounts to playing the movie backward. A full sixteen years elapsed between the March on Rome and the passage of Italy’s race laws. Throughout the s and well into the s, fascism meant something very different from Auschwitz and Nuremberg.
Before Hitler, in fact, it never occurred to anyone that fascism had anything to do with anti—Semitism. Indeed, Mussolini was supported not only by the chief rabbi of Rome but by a substantial portion of the Italian Jewish community and the world Jewish community. Moreover, Jews were overrepresented in the Italian Fascist movement from its founding in until they were kicked out in Race did help turn the tables of American public opinion on Fascism.
But it had nothing to do with the Jews. When Mussolini invaded Ethiopia, Americans finally started to turn on him. It was the first war of conquest by a Western European nation in over a decade, and Americans were distinctly unamused, particularly liberals and blacks.
Still, it was a slow process. The Chicago Tribune initially fawcismo the invasion, as did reporters like Herbert Matthews. Others claimed it would be hypocritical to condemn it. And more than a few prominent Americans continued to support him, although quietly. The poet Wallace Stevens, for example, stayed pro—Fascist. That’s not to say he didn’t have a good ride. In the journalist Isaac F. He has been of great service to Italy at home.

In it established Casa Italiana, a center for the study of Italian culture and a lecture venue goldberv prominent Italian scholars. From to there were more than a hundred articles written on Mussolini in American publications and only fifteen on Stalin. The New York Tribune was vexed to answer the question: Was Mussolini Garibaldi or Caesar? Farrell, the head of U.
Hollywood moguls, noting his obvious theatrical gifts, hoped to make Mussolini a star of the big screen, and he appeared in The Eternal Citystarring Lionel Barrymore. The film recounts the battles between communists and Fascists for control of Italy, and— mirabile dictu —Hollywood takes the side of the Fascists.
Lowell Thomas—the legendary American journalist who had made Lawrence of Arabia famous—worked closely on the film and provided fawning commentary throughout. Mussolini was portrayed as a heroic strongman and national savior. He stands like a modern Caesar! Ernest Hemingway was skeptical of Mussolini almost from the start. Some on the so—called Old Right, like the libertarian Albert J. Nock, saw Fascism as just another kind of statism.
Interestingly, the hard left had almost nothing to say about Italian Fascism for most of its first decade. While liberals were split into various unstable factions, the American left remained largely oblivious to Fascism until the Great Depression. When the left did finally start attacking Mussolini in earnest—largely on orders from Moscow—they lumped him in essentially the same category as Franklin Roosevelt, the socialist Norman Thomas, and the progressive Robert La Follette.
But first it seems worth asking, how was this possible? It was time for man to lay aside the anachronisms of natural law, traditional religion, constitutional liberty, capitalism, and the like and rise to the responsibility of remaking the world in his own image. God was long dead, and it was long overdue for men to take His place. This was in every significant way a project of the left as we understand the term today, a fact understood by Mussolini, his admirers, and his detractors.
The other two names were inspired by now-forgotten heroes of anarchist—socialism, Amilcare Cipriani and Andrea Costa. He discussed them in the evening with his friends and his eyes filled with light. Mussolini was a congenital rabble—rouser. At the age of ten, young Benito led a demonstration against his school for serving bad food.
In high school he called himself a socialist, and at the age of eighteen, while working as a substitute teacher, he became the secretary of a socialist organization and began his career as a left—wing journalist. From the Hardcover edition.
