    Stopping fascism is never, by definition, fascist. Taking fascist votes away is not fascist, the same way banning neo nazi parties is not fascist.
    Stopping free expression of any kind is fascist. Your relative interpretation (or anyone's for that matter) of what makes a party or political figure 'fascist' is subjective. Your ban on free expression is objectively fascistic.

    If someone wants to run for election on fascist ideals, that is their right. To take this away is authoritarian and reprehensible.

    Banning parties that are against democracy and preach hate is not fascist; it is not a right to run for election on fascist ideals. You forget, Hitler was elected. So might Trump, Le Pen, etc. Wasn't Hitler 'authoritarian and reprehensible'? Opposing him and people like him is not 'authoritarian and reprehensible'

    Can someone please answer my original question; are normal people really so racist, or are the far right people using duplicate accounts or something?

    I can't believe 9 million people exist in the world who would think like that. If there are... well, its pretty bad if thats the case

    No, it is not 'right' to run for election on fascist ideals. This doesn't mean we shouldn't allow it. Bare in mind NSDAP used many justifiably illegal techniques in their election campaigns, such as public violence through the SA, and consequently NSDAP should have been barred from the Reichstag. The difference is that NSDAP should have been banned for their illegal actions. You want to disenfranchise the right wing based on their ideas. No idea, no matter how fascistic should be criminalised, and no fascist should be denied election if they do not break the law.

    Let's consider that you were right; that banning people and parties from the electoral system was the morally responsible thing to do. You must face the reality that suppression of an ideology will only ever lead to its increased popularity. When we deny fascists a platform, this only legitimises their views and brews resentment.

    That's ridiculous, and it will lead to another Hitler

    I get what you are saying, but it in no way legitimises their views, but I guess it does brew resentment.
