Happy holidays, you fascists!

December 22, 2010

We here at The Catholic Fascist have taken some heat over the supposed misuse of the term “fascist.” (We think our “about us” page explains our usage quite nicely.) Our buddies and mentors over at The American Catholic have often been at the forefront of this quibble-fest, arguing that essentially any use of the terms “fascist” or “fascism” analogously is inappropriate. Sinful, even.

Until today! TAC’s chief ranter Joe Hargrave has finally come around and has decided to start throwing the word “fascist” around a little more liberally. In this post, he rightly condemns everyone who will not utter the words “Merry Christmas” at this holy time of year as a FASCIST! That’s right — Christians and non-Christians alike are fascists if they have a problem with the words “Merry Christmas.” And he is absolutely right.

So kudos to Joe for always speaking the truth, and now, for finally speaking our language! Holiday Birthday-of-the-White-Male-Imperial-Christ blessings upon Joe, The American Catholic, and to all of our readers, now and forever! The government shall be upon his shoulders, so let’s make that gov’t as small as possible in the new year, fellow patriots!

“No one should doubt that the gunpowder against the infidels is like incense to the Lord.” – Oviedo, 16th c.

Chris Hedges has it right: Christian fascists are growing stronger. But, sadly, not strong enough among our Roman Catholic brethren. Despite some valiant attempts, like our friends at The American Catholic, the Roman Catholic blogosphere remains insufficiently committed to the task of whiteness witness called for during the Second Vatican Council and the duty of spreading American ideals of freedom, capitalism, and unmatched power. Vatican II got so, so many things wrong. But its statement of the Catholic layman’s duty to fight for Catholic truth in the secular sphere could not be more correct.

And today’s United States of America — overrun as it is with radical feminists, whiny liberals, demasculinized “men,” Middle Eastern terrorists, queer homosexualists, greedy pornographers, burnt out drug addicts, lazy deadbeats, and more — needs Christ’s One True Church more than ever. The Catholic Fascist sees its mission as speaking the One Truth into an ambivalent Roman Catholic blogosphere. Our Holy Father is on a mission to purge the Church of its “filth,” and we aim to proclaim and contribute to this cleansing in a way fitting to Internet-connected lay Catholic men.

A note about the blog’s title. Certain minority factions of the Catholic blogosphere have taken to calling conservative Catholics — that is to say TRUE Catholics — “fascists,” a move that is not merely hateful but ignorant of history. Everyone knows that fascists have historically been liberals. Our blog title is not meant to concede that we are “fascists” in the historical sense but to proudly reclaim the word ironically as we boast of the conservative Gospel of Jesus Christ. If promoting the truth is considered “fascist” by the Catholic Left, so be it. Catholic fascists we are.
