What They Are

From a speech given to the Yale political union by Justin Raimondo.

The neoconservative foreign policy project – succinctly summed up by the president as the goal of "ending tyranny in our world" – is closer, in theory and in practice, to the spirit of Marxism than to anything vaguely resembling conservatism, or, indeed, any ideology born on American soil. That is entirely appropriate, of course, since the leftist roots of neoconservatism are well known, and it is clear that, as much as they talk about patriotism and "pro-Americanism," their real roots spring from a bulb planted not by Jefferson, but by Trotsky.

Well said.

I would say that the necons are much closer to Lenin than Marx. More succintly they are closer to fascists. Which components of fascism do they possess?

Corporatism? Check.
Belligerent Militant Nationalism? Check.
Disgust w/ liberal democracy?
Control of public discourse to subvert critical thinking by the citizenry? Check.

The neocons are quasi-fascists.
