Someone just sent me an email which was one of those tirades against Moslems and it started me thinking . . .
There is a definition of fascism which reads . . .
"All fascist movements emphasize a belligerent and virulent form of nationalism along with a fear of foreign people . . ."
Hitler used this fact when his fascist Nazi regime stirred the whole German nation into a hatred of all Gypsies, Jews, Negroes and mentally ill people – and they killed millions of them.
Right-wing Nationalist movements all have fascist beliefs and their members put stuff onto the internet with the specific intention of frightening you and me.
We have to be careful if we decide to listen to the views stated by these emails. If we do we walk a fine line and if we step over that fine line, we step into Fascism.
The problem isn’t as simple as Nationalist organisations would have us believe.
