Anybody have this lying around? I think someone mentioned that it's in Ur-Fascism, but I can't seem to find the exact quote right now.

It's a short essay you can find the full version on google, it should be the first result for ur-fascism.
Here's the quote:
Followers must feel humiliated by the ostentatious wealth and force of their
enemies. When I was a boy I was taught to think of Englishmen as the five-meal people.
They ate more frequently than the poor but sober Italians. Jews are rich and help each
other through a secret web of mutual assistance. However, the followers must be
convinced that they can overwhelm the enemies. Thus, by a continuous shifting of
rhetorical focus, the enemies are at the same time too strong and too weak. Fascist
governments are condemned to lose wars because they are constitutionally incapable of
objectively evaluating the force of the enemy.
