Another fun quote from the right:

If Fascism Ever Comes to America, It Will Come in the Name of Liberalism

Liberalism has historically allowed fascism to flourish. Look at Germany. Fascism is a disease that must be stamped out IMMEDIATELY or it will fester and rot. America is in its death throes.

So when is Sweden, Japan, New Zealand and Canada going to start being "fascist"? How can we take you seriously when places that are incredibly more liberal than the US aren't going through the "death throes" that you're claiming should have happened years ago? Has Liberalism really "allowed" fascism to flourish or is it that the far right response to liberalism is fascism? Watch this video of a conference where Nazis praise Trump, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1o6-bi3jlxk

Why do you think fascists feel more accepted on the right side of the political spectrum?
