Rob Schneider Tells Chris Stigall: We Are Sliding Very Fast Towards Fascism
CBS News Philly ^ | May 2, 2014 10:20 AM | Chris Stigall

Posted on 05/03/2014 12:16:28 PM PDT by Candor7

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Chris Stigall spoke with comedian Rob Schneider on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT about the struggle comedians face in today’s current political environment. Schneider struck on ominous tone when discussing the path he sees the country on.

“Democracies don’t end well. We are sliding very fast towards fascism. It’s an ugly kind of thing. There’s this kind of mob mentality that we have to be careful of,” he said.

He believes comedians are pressured toward one side of the political spectrum.

“There’s a polarization that’s happening…I do think you look can look at government and go, ‘Wow, it is out of control now,’ and if you do criticize or tend to be not directly along a liberal stand, you can get murdered,” Schneider commented.

Schneider was very critical of the President’s handling of the economy and he feels certain policies are impacting businesses.

“There’s not one segment of business under the Obama administration that hasn’t been hurt…he attacks for-profit schools, which is totally an elitist thing from a guy that went to Harvard. I think for free, by the way,” Schneider said.

He was also critical of the media for being overly influenced by the government and not standing up for the American people.

“We don’t really have freedom of the press. It’s owned by about eight different companies, and it doesn’t really express or help the average American,” Schneider stated.

If we were really sliding to fascism, don’t you think someone would be complaining/fighting it?

Excerpt from Wikipedia:

In 2013, Schneider announced that he would no longer support the Democratic Party, citing California’s heavy regulations and calling the state’s economy a disaster. He became a member of the Republican Party and endorsed assemblyman Tim Donnelly for governor.In 2013, Schneider announced that he would no longer support the Democratic Party, citing California’s heavy regulations and calling the state’s economy a disaster.

There are many rich powerful people who would profit from the elimination of the United States of America.
If we are going to save the Republic we need to take over information and discredit the State Run Media. We also need to shine a light on those wealthy men who want to destroy America and make them lepers.

Fascism sneaks upon a society quietly, claiming it is the ultimate good. Of course it turns out to be the ultimate bad. No one recognizes it until it’s too late. Who’s going to save us this time?

No one ever complains during the slide into fascism. (None dare call it treason??) After all, who wants to appear alarmist or extremist? Who is willing to kill a judge or police officer or politician who abuses their power at this stage?

No one fights fascism until it is too late. After all, who’s willing to look back at Tim McVeigh and think, “Hmmm. Maybe he was really a visionary.”

The corporations, banks, and media are benefitting greatly from the slide into fascism so they won’t complain. No one cares what the working class thinks. And the poor think that the entitlement train will roll forever, not realizing that once we are in full fascism, their services as the people who break the economy will not be needed anymore and they’ll be reclassified as “useless eaters”.

I’m guessing you missed all those TEA party groups, the folks at the Bundy ranch in NV, the surge in talk radio, the surge in gun sales, the push against all the scandals, etc

the only thing we haven’t seen yet is politically motivated assassinations in the streets

once 0bamacare starts deducting from paychecks of people that are already going check to check... that’s when it’ll get exciting

Fascism has been here for years. I really took off with King Obama. During his run for a second term most of us know he would win. We could see how the communists Democratic empire of which the MSM was the integer part of the plan. Many of us seen that maybe with Romney the plan would take a hit. We knew that it was a choice between the Romney haters and the reality that if King Obama got another term America was finished for generations. Most of us realized that King Obama is a communists black Muslim and would place such devastation to our economy, foreign relations supporting radical Muslims, and brainwashing Americans that we would evolve into a police state. It is here, and damn little to stop it.

That’s because fascism is the softer sell than communism. Fascism gives the pretense of private ownership. Yes you can own your own home but we(the state) are going to tell you how to live in it. Yes you can own your own business or factory but we’re going to control the production process and dictate what your to pay your employees and what, if anything, what you’re going to pay yourself.

The problem with fighters is that it’s not clear cut good vs. evil. Plenty of the people who are anti-government tend to go a little far, and get pretty alienating in how they operate. Tim McVeigh went way too far. Plenty of people not happy with how government is working would be easily as much, if not more, scared of people like him ever being close to a position of power.

Then there’s the fact that Anarchy is prospectively far more a nightmare than the current situation we have now.

In a way its kind of strange that comedians seem to be a growing voice for freedom at this point.

Louis CK has gone to war over common core. He says “My kids used to like math. Now it just makes them cry.”

Fascism: A form of socialism that seeks to advance the dialectic through state control of the means of production by regulation of the producers as opposed to equity ownership by the state.

America has been a fascist state since 1933. FDR was an admirer of Mussolini up until his invasion of France in 1940. Most of the "New Deal" programs that we live under today are fascist in origin.

America has endured over 80 years of fascism. Few of our leaders have even recognized the reality and none have dared to attack the core programs. Our largest "private sector" enterprises work symbiotically with the state. They are after all, too big to fail. Fascists also enjoy nearly complete of the means of propaganda and can use it to manipulate public opinion and crush any opposition that emerges.

Obama may want to be a more pure Marxist but for the purpose of wielding power, fascism works just fine for him.

That's debatable. There have been an awful lot of suspicious deaths lately of people who spoke out against Obama, or who were suspected of knowing something that would bring him down.

People are beginning to get it. Liberal fascism is here...

Jonah Goldberg, son of Lucianne and National Review editor, wrote a book in 2007 with that title.

From page 1:

[George] Carlin: When fascism comes to America, it will not be in brown and black shirts. It will not be with jack-boots. It will be Nike sneakers and Smiley shirts. Smiley-smiley. Fascism — Germany lost the Second World War. Fascism won it. Believe me, my friend.

Millions of people still think it can't ever happen here. They didn't hear it on the television so it can't be true. All you have to do is open your eyes to the growing power the government has over our lives. Small town police departments have military hardware to use against small town residents. We are video recorded and listened to every time we leave our house or talk on a phone. Federal agencies are being used to attack the political opposition. Hitler didn't take control of Germany in one night, it took time. I can't look at the evidence and see more freedom in our future.

Good stuff, Creek! Everyone needs to do this at every opportunity. Fascism, is a leftist construct used to push a feudal-socialist order where, the elites will be unaffected. They propose to assume the position of the neo-feudal Lords and all of their useful (LIbEral)idiots will suffer the same fate as everyone else.

Satan's greatest feat was convincing people he doesn't exist.

America was finished for generations either way. This is part of democracy going down. If Obama wasn't there plenty of left wing elements in federal and state government and the judiciary would take it down anyway. Romney is meek when confronted and would have had very little impact on the whole process.

Thank you for proving my point. How many American children today will grow up to be slaves to our nation’s debt? A government-funded day care center in a federal building is just one of those debts.

That’d be a bit of a stretch anytime, anywhere. McVeigh was crazy baby killer, like the IRA etc.

You shouldn’t have been. People need to wise up to the fact that the fascism is coming and there’s nothing we can do to stop it. Both political parties are infested with Progressives. Our children are indoctrinated in it from age 4. They just have to maintain status quo until the children of the Cold War era are too old to resist.

The secret to surviving fascism is to make sure that you are on the side of the fascists. The point I was making is that we aren’t at a place where we can fight it and know that justice is on our side, but we’re too far gone down the road to just bitch about it.
