A lot of people think right-wingers aren't capable of being amusing at all. Not true. Mussolini looked hilarious swinging from that lamppost.
What is patriotism but love of the good things we ate in our childhood? I have said elsewhere that the loyalty to Uncle Sam is the loyalty to doughnuts and ham and sweet potatoes and the loyalty to the German Vaterland is the loyalty to Pfannkuchen and Christmas Stollen. As for international understanding, I feel that macaroni has done more for our appreciation of Italy than Mussolini... in food, as in death, we feel the essential brotherhood of mankind.lin yutang
When Mussolini decided on war he did not take my advice or that of any other Army chief. In August 1939 the Duce had not been so sure about the invincibility of the Germans, and he told us that he had sought to persuade Hitler not to act.pietro badoglio
Io ho conquistato all'Italia un impero e Mussolini l'ha buttato via.pietro badoglio
(A Mussolini) Vostra Eccellenza può contare ora e sempre sulla mia completa e assoluta devozione.pietro badoglio
I've been in contact with Marshal Badoglio. We agree that Italy must be saved from the abyss toward which Fascism is driving her. If we depose Mussolini, however, the new government should do nothing drastic to upset Hitler until we can secretly negotiate an armistice with the Allies.ugo cavallero
If we had allowed things to drift, everything would have gone from bad to worse. Nasser would have become a kind of Moslem Mussolini, and our friends in Iraq, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and even Iran would gradually have been brought down. His efforts would have spread westwards, and Libya and North Africa would have been brought under his control.anthony eden
Mussolini was the greatest political leader of the century.gianfranco fini
[On Mussolini as the greatest political leader of the century] The answer is in the things I've done in the last years. I don't think the same anymore, I would be schyzophrenic.gianfranco fini
We know that England is crying for a leader, and that leader has emerged in the person of the greatest Englishman I have ever known, Sir Oswald Mosley ... When the history of Europe comes to be written I can assure you that his name will not be second to either Mussolini or Hitler.william joyce
I have never met anyone who wasn't against war. Even Hitler and Mussolini were, according to themselves.david low
We are not imitating Hitler and Mussolini. They are imitating us. They have just discovered what we knew for centuries: that a corporate, collectivist system pays.toshio shiratori
Hitler decided that Mussolini must be freed from the Italian Partisans because Benito was his friend and had acted in good faith.otto skorzeny
In his book Modern Times, the historian Paul Johnson referred to Hitler, Stalin, and Mussolini as the three devils of the twentieth century. Interestingly, Nietzshean dogma influenced each of them.ravi zacharias
Mussolini never killed anyone, he just sent dissenters abroad for vacation.Silvio Berlusconi
Obviously the government of [Mussolini's] time, out of fear that German power might lead to complete victory, preferred to ally itself with Hitler 's Germany rather than opposing it … The racial laws were the worst fault of Mussolini as a leader, who in so many other ways did well.Silvio Berlusconi
Your liberators tell you that that your suppressors are Wilhelm , Nikolaus, Pope Gregory the Twenty Eighth, Morgan , Krupp or Ford . And your "liberators" are called Mussolini , Napoleon , Hitler and Stalin . I tell you: "Only you yourself can be your liberator!"wilhelm reich
Maxim Gorki, supposedly citing a quote from Trotsky, told some journalists in 1924: "From Mussolini's governmental actions I have got to know his energy and I admire him, but I prefer Trotsky's opinion: Mussolini has made a revolution, he is our best student."
We are not imitating Hitler and Mussolini. They are imitating us. They have just discovered what we knew for centuries: that a corporate, collectivist system pays.

Fascism is the cult of organised murder , invented by the arch-enemies of society . It tends to destroy civilization and revert man to his most barbarous state. Mussolini and Hitler might well be called the devils of an age, for they are playing hell with civilization.Marcus Garvey
Hitler showed surprising loyalty to Mussolini, but it never extended to trusting him.A(rthur) H(enry) Reginald Buller
There is now doubt in our minds that Nasser, whether he likes it or not, is now effectively in Russian hands, just as Mussolini was in Hitler's. It would be as ineffective to show weakness to Nasser now in order to placate him as it was to show weakness to Mussolini.anthony eden
We were the first Fascists, when we had 100,000 disciplined men, and were training children, Mussolini was still an unknown. Mussolini copied our Fascism.Marcus Garvey
