Zimbabwe internet shut down amid chaos

Zimbabweans faced a “total internet shutdown” after a violent crackdown on people protesting against a dramatic rise in fuel prices.

Badly injured people streamed into a hospital in the capital Harare after alleged assaults by security forces.

“Our country is going through one of the most trying periods in its history,” the Zimbabwe Catholic Bishops’ Conference said in a statement lamenting the government’s “intolerant handling of dissent” and its failure to halt economic collapse.

Well, fascism is characterised by authoritarian control of the populace. And so, of course, is Marxism. 

Notwithstanding, it should be Emmerson Mnangagwa these days, rather than Mugabe. 

Notwithstanding, why should we be surprised ? This is just another milestone on Zimbabwe's relentless drive down the road to total bankruptcy and failure. Within 5 years, Zimbabwe will be mentioned in the same tones as Yemen and Sudan.

The only difference between Marxism/Communism and Fascism is its scale, Marxism is an international movement, that's why Corbyn and co like immigrants; while Fascism is a National movement, both are undemocratic, authoritarian and anti-capitalist.

Hmmm.. interesting thought. I'll bear that in mind. 

Meanwhile.. back in Zimbabwe.... the country is still being run into the ground.

Even Hitler said he took his cues from Marx, and Mussolini's government is a great example of this.

Well, Emmerson Mnangagwa doesn't seem to be taking cues from any of the above. He just wants to redistribute land from white farmers to black people. 

Oh.. and destroy his country.

I actually don't fear that system becoming entrenched in America because those who would impose it can only depend on some of the sheep to willingly accept their new "laws".  The rest will disperse and raise so much hell that they'd only be able to control major urban areas.  Kind of like has happened in Afghanistan.

This happened while Mnangagwa is in Russia.

It looks like Chiwenga setting things up for a coup.
