Fascist Frank

Today is 15 March 2013.

Friends:  Beware the Ides of March!

I refuse to defame Francis of Assisi by calling the new "pope" Francis.  In these pages he shall be either "Frank," "Bergo," or "Bergoglio."

Much is made of his "humble" concern for the poor.  However, as a good reactionary, he wishes the poor to remain poor, fawning over him for the scraps of charity he condescends to toss to their filthy selves.

Bergo made this crystal clear in the 1960s and 1970s.  First, in his opposition to Liberation Theology, which struggled to give the poor valid opportunities to overthrow the neo-fascist South American military-political-economic structures which repressed and exploited them.

Second, in his reaction to the so-called "Dirty War" of the 1970s, when the neo-fascist military juntas in Argentina and Chile conducted wide-spread campaigns of kidnapping, torture, and murder to preserve themselves in power.  As head of the Jesuit order in Argentina, not a word was heard from Bergo, even when his supposedly-beloved poor, and fellow Jesuits, were the targets.

Prepare yourself for a reactionary pseudo-Christian fist in a velvet glove.
