  •  Definitely more fascist than Stalinist (4.00)
    I mean, sure, in this case I guess there isn't that huge of a difference, in that they hate free speech. But I think the difference is that they aren't appealing to ideals, the way a Stalinist would, but rather to nationalism. Especially since they're echoing the conviction of the Nazis that liberals stabbed the country in the back (also the conviction of the Right that that's what doomed Vietnam). Although it's probably better to say Stalinist so as not to invoke Godwin's Law. Wait, oops.
