    The left are fascist themselves, it's no surprise they fail to call it out.
    I can lend you a dictionary if you want? You seem to fail to understand the word.

    Your post is of course correct, but N&CA has become awash with the usual bandwagon of cretins again, as is routine, so your post won't get much love. The intelligence of many people on this site is very, very low so please don't expect anything good.
    It's a worry. not that people agree with me, but that the rise of the far right will only embolden them. I can see this whole thing becoming a self-propelling and violent cycle.

    Churchill said it, after Ialta or somewhere else with Stalin: ''I've seen the future of fascism, they call themselves anti-fascist'. Perfectly sensible, the Soviet political system could only be implemented through a dictatorship. Never bothered the far left, did it?
    In the West this type of thing has almost always been on the fringes though. I'm not even talking about specific ideologies. These people aren't necessarily Trotskists or Stalinists, they're deluded middle of the road liberals that are happy to throw secularism and democracy under the bus.

    Funny enough I'm just reading " Liberal Fascism....the secret history of the left". by Jonah Goldberg.
    Very enlightening and highly recommended.😊

    I've not heard of that. Thanks for the tip!

    I'm very much of the left myself, it's a bad time for us.
