    Adolf Hitler, Mussolini, ...

    I think that's the ilk being referred to in the article.

    You know, rightwing nuts with weapons willing to assassinate public figures and stomp on people's heads. That's what's in our swamp.

    Until we break the corporate virtual monopoly on what we hear and see, we keep losing, don't matter what we do.

      took over.
      Dubya definitely qualifying as one.
      Karl Rove.  So it's unclear of what we should be afraid of now.

      I'd say that fascism can take many forms and not necessarily of the Nazi strain.

      Corporate Fascism could be more of a plutocratic endeavor and could employ very sophisticated methods to keep the people in line.

      Violence could be sublimated into new forms that avoid the nasty nihilism of the Third Reich.

      I am not at all convinced we would see the rise of classic totalitarianism.

      Palin, Christine O'Donnell, Rand Paul, Mike Huckabee, etc.  Some of them seem to have the potential to be really bad actors perhaps along the lines of the Hitler, Mussolini continuum.
