    Calling Nazis "fascists" is over simplification and factually wrong.
    Are you are also saying that calling the US republic a democracy an over simplification and factually wrong?

    Soon hes going to bet you $10K that you cant prove him wrong. He of course will not pay when you do. By my calculations he owes about 1.2 million to various posters by now

    I think he is just another version of that conservative poster, same stuff over and over again.

    Possibly but as his syntax is rather odd sometimes (not as bad as his early posts) I think we are looking at someone east of the Ukraine

    No, not really, they are fascists and nazi's at the same time. Fascism is:

    radical (check for the nazi's)

    right wing (check for the nazi's)

    authoritarian (check for the nazi's)

    ultra nationalist (check for the nazi's)

    characterized by:

    dictatorial power (check for the nazi's)

    forcible oppression of opposition (check for the nazi's)

    strong regimentation in society and economy (check for the nazi's)

    one party states (check for the nazi's)

    against liberal democracy (check for the nazi's)

    dictators (check for the nazi's)

    anti progressive (check for the nazi's)

    It is absolutely factually right to say that nazi's were fascists but they were also more than just regular fascists, they were also virulently anti-semitic and had a leader who had delusions of grandeur. But it was still fascism plus.

    Well it was almost exactly the same same point...those 70-80 years are just a blink of the eye since slavery has existed for about one million years.
