Did you even READ what that definition that you posted said. You could have put Republican or NeoCon in the place of Fascism and in more cases than not it would be a perfect fit.
racism - check
intolerant - check [gays, immigration, "science", world view]
xenophobia - check [immigration, Muslims]
jingoism [chauvinistic patriotism] - check
anti-Semitism - semi-check [can't decide if Jews are worse that Muslims]

Thanks for making my point.
