Fritzsche and others describe fascism as a militant form of right-wing populism. This mobilization strategy involves Corporatism, Corporativism, or the Corporative State all terms that refer to state action to partner with key business leaders, often in ways chosen to minimize the power of labor unions. Mussolini, for example, capitalized on fear of an imminent Socialist revolution, finding ways to unite Labor and Capital, to Labor's ultimate detriment. In 1926 he created the National Council of Corporations, divided into guilds of employers and employees, tasked with managing 22 sectors of the economy.
I seem to remember that Hitler, et al DIDN'T bother to rebuild countries his military had defeated and then allow them to vote. No, he mined them for slaves.

The following is an article by Scott McConnell in the American Conservative magazine: Hunger for Dictatorship
It talks about what he describes as the "brownshirting of American conservatism." He states that current conservative government officials aren't fascists (though they may display "tendencies"); however, he points out that there is a constituency for an American fascism "with a democratic face."
This observation is on point, I believe. I've had encounters with such people. They advocate nuclear wars and invasions against all countries that oppose us,

Fascism is basically a collective of corporations who are loyal to the every word of the directing government.
This is just juvenile name calling by a bunch of sore losers (some of whom are pretending to be conservatives)
