this machine by Satansgoalie this machine by Satansgoalie
this piece was inspired by a couple of things.

first, it's obvious that there is something going on in this country. people have long since picked sides and many will do anything to demonize and smear the other. as of right now our side is unable to beat the powers that be with force. our side is simply out maned and out gunned. however, we have a weapon that is better that guns. we have the internet and we have video cameras. exposing these corrupt officials and holding them accountable in front of the entire country via sites like youtube is the one thing they probably fear most...and it's working. which would explain the recent push to regulate the internet.

second, the phrase "this machine kills fascist" comes from one of america's greatest song writers, woody guthrie. he traveled around this country during the great depression writing songs that would become american classics. he is well known to have popularized the phrase during this time due to the fact that the phrase was often painted on his guitar. [link]

so, while thinking of the current state of this country and listening to mr. guthrie i was inspired and came up with this.

enjoy...or not. whatever....

oh, btw...you'll be able to get this on a shirt soon over at my zazzle store.

Fascist is probably the single most misused word on the internet.

well, if you want to get technical, a fasc(ist) is just someone who supports or follows the ideals of fasc(ism). but that's not what you mean is it?

Okay, then what to you constitutes as fascism? Not what a quick jog to Wikipedia says.

Well, the way it was explained to me when I was in school was that it's a political philosophy that puts the "state's" needs above those of the individual. Everything from business, economics and social interactions are controlled by a centralized government and ruled over by a dictator. In most instances any opposition is forcibly suppressed...

So, I guess since that's what I was taught in school and it happens to be the general consensus, I'd say that's what constitutes as fascism... 

by the way, have you heard of Woody Guthrie or his guitar?

Well, that's quite a bit different than a power mad cop, abusing his power. That's just not fascism so much as being a colossal asshole. Not that its any more acceptable.
I know enough about him, to know that he was a folk singer, who to much fanfare, spoke out against the Nazis, and that Peter, Paul and Mary covered one of his more famous songs. Because I do remember their cover. Heard it a lot growing up, as my dad was really into them.

I would change it to say "This machine kills fascists, especially if you get it smashed and destroyed 7 times a year, end up in a dirty cell on a 3 month hunger strike and nearly die, instead of sitting behind a computer and blogging about fascism" (But that's what i'm doing, right?)

I say you have to put your life and limb at considerable risk before you get the badge of "fascism fighter."

Americans don't seem to be willing to do that.......

Actually, the Internet is the Bane of Fascism; it is what allows the Images of Corruption to be spread, and No, WE are neither 'outmanned' nor 'outgunned'.... Notice how the commies have given up on 'gun control'? they saw that by continuing to push that issue, they were headed down the road to civil war, which they would lose.
