Fascist always promise to restore order, protect private property and promote prosperity…

Muslim Brotherhood was founded in Egypt in 1928 by Hassan al-Banna, and its methodology has spread to youth and impoverished blue collar and peasants of the Egyptian society, adapting a module of deep community reach similar to the Nazi organization Nationalsozialistische Volkswohlfahrt (NSV), as it grew in popularity.

NSPW was a social welfare organization during the Third Reich. The NSV was established in 1931 as a local welfare organization; on 3 May 1933, shortly after the Nazi Party took power in Weimar Germany, Hitler turned it into a party organization of the NSDAP.

The main offices were in Berlin. The structure of the NSV was based on the Nazi Party model, with local, county (Kreis) and district (Gau) administrations.

The origins of fascism lay in a promise to protect people. In the case of European fascist movements it dates back to the late 19th and early 20th centuries, a rush of globalisation destroyed communities, professions and cultural norms while generating a wave of immigration.

Right-wing nationalist movements promising to protect people from the pernicious influence of foreigners and markets arose, and frightened, disoriented and displaced people responded. These early fascist movements disrupted political life in some countries.

The fascists also appeal to people’s desire for social security, solidarity and protection from economic/colonial/religious threat. Fascist always promise to restore order, protect private property and promote prosperity and shield society from economic downturns and disruption.

Fascists stressed that wealth entailed responsibilities as well as privileges, and should be administered for the benefits of the nation while maintaining a common enemy or insisting on driving the society according to their ways and villainize their opponents.

Similar to the India’s right-wing RSS racial purity narrative and the Muslim Brotherhood’s Political purity narrative, Hitler’s National Socialist German Workers’ Party (NSDAP) promised to serve the entire German people, but the German fascist vision of ‘the people’ did not include Jews and other “undesirables”.

They promised to create a “people’s community” (Volksgemeinschaft) that would overcome the country’s divisions. The fascists also pledged to fight the depression and contrasted its activism on behalf of the people’s welfare with the meekness and austerity of the government and the socialists.

By the 1932 elections, these appeals to protect the German people helped the Nazis become the largest political party, and the one with the broadest socioeconomic base.

This kind of thing is clear if you follow the money, IRGC members are prioritized in Iran’s State Budget, benefits, jobs and education, same like the practices Muslim Brotherhood did in Egypt and GCC countries where they favored the party members in giving jobs and education.

RSS is also engaged in the charity where they gave aid and support to Hindutva exclusively.

US-based Muslim Brotherhood wing, Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) engaged in the political process of smearing political opposition and voting in extreme political figures into the legislative branch of the US government.

I will conclude with the statement, “selective charity and/or charity with ulterior motives is not an act of kindness, its an evil deception”.
