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]
Now if you want to talk about the Republicans prior to Nixon/Ford, that is a different story but with the death of Buckley, they are gone forever, replaced by, well...
Thanks for making my point.
You really made me laugh with that post. Yes, I found it funny because it sounded more like the ravings of a very paranoid person. Bush nor any of his administration is building crematoriums and gas chambers to execute any race of persons. I'd venture to assume you may be referring to the detainment of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay. Club Gitmo is hardly a mass murdering concentration camp that houses innocent victims.
You called Bush and his administration RACIST? I'm calling you on that one, dude. He has/had the most diverse cabinet of any President. Condeleeza Rice, Colin Powell, Alberto Gonzales, etc. It was a Republican administration who oversaw the nomination of Clarence Thomas to the Supreme Court, a nominee liberals demonized and trumped up charges against by bringing another black (Anita Hill) to make charges against him. Your own democratic party is imploding because of the racist, bigoted comments made by Obama's good friend and mentor, Rev. Wright AND comments made by Ferraro, a Clinton hack. It is the democratic party who consistently commits racist offenses but YOU call Republicans racist? Was it not a very popular democratic president that built 'concentration camps' and jailed innocent AMERICAN CITIZENS because they happened to have Japanese blood in their veins? What do you call THAT?
And most conservatives, such as myself, are intolerant of BULLSHIT science, not science. We are intolerant of ILLEGAL immigrants, not immigrants. And what about gays? What's wrong with expecting marriage standards to remain as 1 man, 1 woman? That's the way it has been since the beginning, so, why would you seek to change it, now? Bedroom business should remain so.
Anti-Semitism??? Give me a break. America has aligned itself with Israel since it became a nation, a nation the Arabic world doesn't think should exist, and our alignment with Israel is the sore subject with all Arab nations.
Your argument is weak and you're out of paintballs on this one.
