Calling one’s political opponents fascist demean the term. Fascism becomes a dirty word. It looses it’s meaning. To fight our enemies we need to know who our enemies are first.
The murders in Flordia was an attack on the lgbt community by reactionary religious fanaticism. The murder of Jo Cox MP was the murder of a mother and a democratic servant of the people. I find that a lot of people online are debating side issues but the main questions are drowned out in this debate. Who did theses crimes and why did they commit these crimes? They committed these crimes because they believed they have the right to impose their views no matter what.
ISIS are fascist and neo Nazis are fascists too. They hate democracy and I believe that democracy is sacred. As World War 2 showed fascism must be confronted.
