Reader comment on item: Fascism's Legacy: Liberalism

Submitted by Stefan Patejak (United States), Apr 9, 2008 at 13:28

If communism is fascism and the New Deal was fascism, doesn't World War II become nothing more than a struggle between rival groups of fascists? Doesn't the Vietnam War become a conflict between the fascist North Vietnamese and the fascist Lyndon Johnson, who was in turn opposed by the fascist new left?

Since Wilson's administration came before the rise of Mussolini, wouldn't it make more sense to call the whole movement Wilsonianism? Since Zionism puts it's primary emphases on the Jewish people and the Jewish state isn't it also a form of fascism? (After all, if Herzl was primarily concerned with individual Jews, he could have sponsored a movement to have them immigrate to America.)

Heil Hillary!
