Banks and the new fascism

There are many who read this site that have a solid understanding of the actual meaning of fascism, as opposed to merely referring to a group you don’t like as ANFINO does, or just referring to use of force against people who are no threat to anyone except in an ideological sense. I hope you will weigh in on these four items and explain how this is, or is not actually fascism.

1. Pro-Trump Covfefe Coffee Brand Canceled by Chase Bank

Covfefe Coffee, founded in 2018, brands itself as “Coffee For Deplorables By Deplorables.” The company, which says their goal is to “provide proud to Americans access to world-class coffee without having to fund your political and cultural opponents,” was informed via email on Wednesday that they would no longer be able to use their payment processing service because payments were “for one or more of the activities prohibited by” their terms of service.

“Unfortunately, you will no longer be able to use WePay Payments to accept additional payments,” the email continued. “Any pending payments will be canceled and you won’t be able to withdraw funds at this time.”

Back in the old days this would be both theft, and fraud on the part of Chase Bank.

2. Then we have these two clips from last week:

And if we dip into the past slightly…

3. Patreon bans Robert Spencer, claims Mastercard made them do it

4. Shopify Permanently Bans Trump’s Official Online Stores

Hard to say exactly why Shopify banned all trump stores. Could it be because President Trump tried to end slave labour camps in China by bringing jobs back to the USA where working conditions are the best? Or certainly better than a Uighur slave labour camp. One thing is fore sure. Its not cause of his stance on Global Warming since the owner of Spotify’s new Rockcliffe Park house has electrically heated walkways and driveways. That has to be worth a few Carbon credits and Gore’s CO2 casinos.

And once we open up that can-o-worms we find an enormous number of once private companies that have denied service to people who’s views interfered with the neo-Marxist agenda. As I understand it, that is fascism.

I look forward to any discussion on that definition.

    • I think the entire “left” is made up of unwitting useful idiots and nobody expects them to win any wars against a bunch of right-wing, gun-range-owning, Republican rednecks who would blow them all to hell if it ever came down to it. No, I think the point is only to weaken and disrupt the West so as to allow China to emerge as the new world leader upon the ashes of the obviously-failed, obviously inferior, so-called “Western Democracies”. “Tut-tut-tut” they will say as they show our flaming cities on the evening news. “See what happens when there’s too much freedom?”.

      “How lucky we are to live in a sensible, well-thought-out, effective, communist dictatorship. The ‘democracies’ spend all their time fighting amongst themselves and never get anything done. Democracy is proven to not work… It’s a fact!”

      What do they care who “wins”? They just don’t ever again want to see John Kerry coming at them with his big finger wagging at them over the effing Uighurs… Time for Sahib and Bwana to leave the stage as far as they’re concerned…

        • Yes! They most certainly could lose absolutely everything and it could happen really quickly and fairly easily. That’s been the gun that’s been aimed at their heads for years. One quick week of protests and the whole country could reject the communist government and put them all in jail like the Egyptian people did with the Muslim Brotherhood. Just like that. It’s a very real fear so making the US look bad is a real necessity for them. They have to do it… It’s worth their bloody lives… The same is true with Iran and North Korea, to name a few…

          And if there is actual civil war the West will lose big time no matter who “wins”. War is the worst possible thing and would just turn our lives into garbage and our countries into dumps…
          But from the Chinese perspective, it wouldn’t matter who “wins” only the fact that there is war would matter and we’d look plenty bad enough because of it…

  1. I don’t think that “facism” as we understand it is very well defined but in my opinion it is about devotion to an all-encompassing political entity that places “our” group far ahead of all the other groups and then feels justified in bullying the “others” around in order to benefit “us” with no restraint or empathy toward the other, like Mussolini invading Ethiopia and Libya. A few hundred years ago that was considered normal and could even earn you the title, “The Great”, but it was past its due date by the 1930s in most people’s opinions.

    The religion of Islam, by the way, perfectly ticks all the boxes for my definition of “fascism”, and so do AOC and her Democrat Bolsheviks.

    • You described what the left wants us to think if Fascism, in reality it is a branch of Marxism that allows private property but the government regulations say what you can do with that property.

      • Yes, Benito Mussolini was a Marxist, and NAZI is the national “socialist” party. But I would say that the word “fascist” is more than a theoretical economic system. There is also a Machiavellian attitude that goes with it and tends to make them downright mean. Fascists tend to think that there is nothing they aren’t allowed to do in the name of furthering their own cause. I don’t think of there being “nice fascists”…

        Both Hitler and Mussolini, as well as the Japanese Emperor, believed that it was just fine and dandy to invade another country if you really wanted to and you had the firepower… I would call that “fascist”…

        Anyway, I’m certainly not the last word on defining words like “fascist” and “hegemony” and “exceptionalism”…lol

  2. What Fascism is not:

    Fascism (/?fæ??z?m/) is a form of far-right, authoritarian ultranationalism characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition and strong regimentation of society and of the economy which came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe. › wiki › Fascism
    Fascism – Wikipedia

    (We always knew Wikipedia was no good.) Incidentally, isn’t it time Yucki came back from her break?

    This far-right description came from the left’s propagandization, since Hitler, to successfully banish this collective ideology from its own rightful residence in popular understanding.

    On the other hand the word seems to mean whatever leftist academics want it to mean today:
    Usually, this will be some concoction that does not include my own understanding, which is that a fascist state is created when big business is better off with big government than it is without it. This contrasts the normal, successful country model where the small and medium-sized business animal flourishes because government is small.

    It is my humble observation that once government starts to lobby and partner with big business, with the goal of enhancing its own power, that a fascistic entity begins to form.

    Further, to discount the “ultranationalist” component in the Wikipedia entry above, I submit that the United States I grew up near was a very patriotic country, and that there is a linguistic slight-of-hand at play that attempts to substitute the disparaging term “ultranationalist” with the term Patriotic.

    In my final analysis it all comes to to the size of government.

  3. 1. Wepay have in section 7 of their terms and conditions, a long list of prohibited activities.
    From Adult sex services to Financial Services to Telecom services to Travel services.

    Political parties: “Quasi-governmental / supra-National Organizations, including International Monetary Fund, Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development, Organization of American States, Peace Corps, United Nations, foreign economic and social development services, governments, and embassies, missions and consulates”

    If Wepay have deemed Covfefe is a political front, then it is for the merchant to show this is untrue and that they are genuinely and fairly exploiting a market by acting solely as legitimate traders riding a feel-good accelerant for their drug, caffeine.

    “Drugs or drug paraphernalia
    Marijuana dispensaries and related products or services
    Personal enhancement products or nutraceuticals – vitamins, supplements, herbals, weight loss programs
    Pharmaceuticals, internet pharmacies
    Pseudo pharmaceuticals”

    I doubt if Starcucks ever used Wepay.

  4. 2. Using every electronic means of surveillance. The American Bank, cameras and mobile phones etc. Edward Snowden was right.

    “In a ruling handed down on Wednesday, the US court of appeals for the ninth circuit said the warrantless telephone dragnet that secretly collected millions of Americans’ telephone records violated the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and may well have been unconstitutional.

    Snowden, who fled to Russia in the aftermath of the 2013 disclosures and still faces US espionage charges, said on Twitter that the ruling was a vindication of his decision to go public with evidence of the National Security Agency’s domestic eavesdropping operation.”

    And it makes it easy for foreign governments just to copy the keys of these real domestic terrorists. For in the hands of Communist or Fascist socialisms, centralized power is absolute.

    The American Constitution: the enemy of many governments.

  5. Ten cent is ccp and owns a chunk of spotify: ( from rolling stone)
    “65 percent of Spotify was owned by just six parties: the firm’s co-founders, Daniel Ek and Martin Lorentzon (30.6 percent of ordinary shares between them); Tencent Holdings Ltd. (9.1 percent); “

  6. Before the Fascist regimes that are listed above, was the Holy Roman Empire. Now we wait and see how this will shift to the bible believing Christians of the world. Bible says in the last days, if you don’t take the mark of the beast (romes mark of authority is Sunday worship, according to rome itself) you will not be able to buy and sell.
