The growing fascism in continental Europe, Trump's America, and Japan, is once again a growing threat to the world.

Brexit Britain should seek to reconsider its old alliances in view of this deteriorating situation.

Always the same: economy struggling and country in a bad place, "others" are blamed (in Italy's case, immigrants and corrupt politicians), so we need a "strong leader" to make us great again!
These people always assume the fascist leader will remain on their side when they have unlimited power, which ofc they never do. Why should they?
Will be interesting to see how far they go as Italy is in a bad place, usually fascist parties peak below a majority.

Okay. I dunno how this is a threat to the rest of the world, seems more like Italian citizens supporting their own oppression by means of a dictatorial government that they elected democratically. Though, to be fair, I'm going off the headline and not the video, which I have yet to watch cus I just feel like commenting now.

We should investigate other "formerly" fascist countries such as Japan.

Interestingly, the government in Italy is both left wing and right wing. The Leauge is centre right, but M5s is interestingly left in that it is environmentalist pro same sex marraige. Similar situation in Austria, a right wing party in coalition with the environmentalist greens.

Hardly surprising; a lot of Europe is fascist or qasi-fascist. Most in the EU, I should add, and some want to join the EU. Ukraine is the worst offender, glorifies Nazi collaborators as do the Baltics, Hungary is qasi-fascist, as is Poland. Fun fact, the EU was actually a fascist idea from Oswald Mosely who wanted a "United", Federal Europe. Glad we're leaving the EU.

If it's not for money, it's a bit rich for such an admirer and supporter of the ongoing Chinese Communist dictatorship to worry so much about fascism. Too busy to watch the vid. There was more freedom in Nazi Germany than in the Soviet Union.

As for what goes on in our patch in comparison, they're not yet gripped by the McCarthyite atmosphere where a career can go down the plug for publicly expressing a 'wrong' thought or opinion on a range of issues, surely they are not having cases of the police getting in touch because of something on Twitter. Or as many issues with speakers at Uni campuses. If they are, it will be at a lower rate. Much more worried about fascism in the UK, to be honest.

Yeah fascism is a lot more open in Eastern Europe. Greece has a lot of fascism too.

Mosely actually rejected the idea of federal Europe, instead wanting it to be one political unit (which the EU isn't and won't be).

+ the 5k from the italy communist

Makes 22k roughly which means the hard right are roughly 4x smaller, and this is just what i could find in 15 mins of looking and not counting any of the supporters of the hard left NGOs that ferry illegal immigrants into itally
