Texas Teabagger head is a fascist.

He promoted a fascist party.

A tea party leader in Texas is defending his promotion of the American Fascist Party as something he thought was "pro-Constitution, pro-America."

James Ives, who was listed as the president of the Greater Fort Bend County Tea Party in 2011, confirmed to The Texas Tribune on Monday that he had made a promotional video for the American Fascist Party and advocated tea party principles on a Fascist Party message board.

In the video, a man who looks like Ives sits in front of a Fascist Party logo wearing a uniform with yellow shoulder patches. Another photo shows a uniformed man sitting in front of a fascist cross. The blog that inspired Norwegian mass shooter Anders Behring Breivik describes fascist solar crosses as "symbolic representations buried deep in the regions of the brain where the primal responses to stimuli are rage, awe, and fear."

1. One wonders how he reconciles the fascist idea of state control of the economy...

with his supposed Tea Party principles of "smaller government". Fascism, like Marxist-Leninist Soviet Communism, is the epitome of a "statist" political philosophy.

3. Pick and choose

Just like everything else they do. They pick and choose the parts of the Bible they like. They love the Tea Party but ignore what the real tea party was all about. They love the tea party but refuse to see the people behind it that are working against what they really want.

2. Well, fascism is certainly constitutional.

Hence the problem... just because the Constitution allows something doesn't necessarily mean that thing should be done.

Of course, modern economies are so multinational or even trans-national, that business-friendly fascism becomes anti-American.

But, of course, I'm sure the invisible hand of the free market will fix that somehow.
