Henry Wallace Statement About American Fascists

Their final objective toward which all their deceit is directed is to capture political power so that, using the power of the state and the power of the market simultaneously, they may keep the common man in eternal subjection. – Henry Agard Wallace

The Dangers Of American Fascism | Henry Agard Wallace

Henry A. Wallace

An article in the New York Times, April 9, 1944.
From Henry A. Wallace, Democracy Reborn (New York, 1944), edited by Russell Lord, p. 259.

On returning from my trip to the West in February, I received a request from The New York Times to write a piece answering the following questions:
What is a fascist?
How many fascists have we?
How dangerous are they?
A fascist is one whose lust for money or power is combined with such an intensity of intolerance toward those of other races, parties, classes, religions, cultures, regions or nations as to make him ruthless in his use of deceit or violence to attain his ends. The supreme god of a fascist, to which his ends are directed, may be money or power; may be a race or a class; may be a military, clique or an economic group; or may be a culture, religion, or a political party.

On this trip to the West Coast, I propose to talk about America Tomorrow. Today I shall speak about what America wants. Later on at San Francisco and Seattle I shall discuss what America can have and how America can get it. We want many different things and some of these are in conflict with others. But let me point out right at the start that the sum total of what we Americans can have is immense. Only a few years ago, when the President said we wanted fifty thousand warplanes a year, some people thought he was being visionary. Today we know that the production of a hundred thousand warplanes a year is a hard reality. So I tell you we can have twice as much far civilian living after the war as we ever had before the war, and you know that is no dream: There are limits, but they are much higher than most people even yet realize.

Discover Where Corporations are Getting Taxpayer Handouts Across the United States

Before you subscribe to the notion that you and your fellow Americans are a bunch of filthy beggars, please consider the data provided here. It’s been thirty years since the passage of nafta. A once thriving US economy has been outsourced to other countries and there seems to be no end to the demagoguery.

Please take some time and see where your money is really going. They like to use the terms “entitled” and “entitlement”. Well, social security is an entitlement as we pay for it and we are all entitled to much more than we are getting from people who claim to claim to love this country so much.
