A fascist is merely a violent activist.

No, I just brought it up, because so often, you see them out acting angry, same with BLM, and many other protestors on the more left-leaning side of the spectrum. How about the pussy hat brigade? Those were some nasty women ... wasn't that the poem? It seems that was all about being an angry woman. There's that anger thing.

What about every time some conservative speaker comes to speak and angry protestors show up and get the speech shut down. That's anger and it leads to fascistic action, no matter how much those people claim to be acting against what they perceive to be fascism.

It is still anger that's moving them. It doesn't matter than no one is forced to go see those speakers, and you actually have to pay to attend ... they are so angry about those people's mere presence they they actively angrily try to prevent those people from speaking.

That is fascism in action, and it's the very thing this person is talking about in his Op-Ed.

Reminds me of George C Scott.

Free speech is the enemy of Facism. Look for those trying to shut down the free exchange of ideas and the voices of the oppressed and it will lead you right to the Facists. Those who favor restricting feee speech and support censorship are the enemies of liberty.

because it doesn't exist on the political scale/spectrum, a "fascist" is neither left nor right, but by definition a "radical authoritarian nationalist" with dictatorship powers

"fascism" is anti-liberalism, anti-communism and anti-conservatism, which is why the ideology has been adopted by the far/extreme right (on a political scale) but not inherently "rightist" or "leftist"

another reason why horseshoe theory is complete nonsense


Fascism arose in Europe as a response to Bolshevism. I agree it's anti-liberalism, anti-communism, I don't know about anti-conservatism. If you like communism, everyone else looks fascist.

"horseshoe theory is complete nonsense" Yes, nevertheless it is what most people at ATS seem to believe. There is no difference between the two. I think they just perceive both as authoritarian systems and are against that.

It's hard for me to believe that I'm agreeing with you, but see with enough time you can find common ground with just about anyone.

Thank you for the lesson!!!
