Haven't read the thread but:

1) Fascism is a far-right position. It's hilarious that you're going after the leftist administration claiming fascism.

2) Actually, there is no 2. Obama's administration is by no means fascism. However, the GOP platform is damn close.

I don't think you understand fascism. Calling it a far-right position is outright false.

How? Nanuq posted a pretty good criteria for fascism. Now, you may be right here in a sense. I am a bit mistaken. Fascism isn't as far right as say, libertarianism (anarchy).

And you think that all that, with vast overarching governmental powers - an incestuous government/corporate/religious relationship is a far-right ideology? Maybe it's your basic understanding of the left vs right paradigm that's lacking?

The truth is that Facism takes tenets from both the Far Left and Far Right and makes it's own unique form of government. It has elements of socialism and extreme capitalistic nationalism, both generally accepted as conflicting ideologies.

I think that your understanding of the Nolan Chart may be a bit skewed.

And fascism is definitely far right ideology.
