The world has already heard the types of promises made by a madman who seeks control through death and destruction.

This political ideology and mass movement that dominated many parts of central, southern, and eastern Europe between 1919 and 1945 and that also had adherents in western Europe, the United StatesSouth AfricaJapan, Latin America, and the Middle East.

Europe’s first fascist leader was Benito Mussolini,. He took the name of his party from the Latin word fasces, which referred to a bundle of elm or birch rods usually containing an ax and used as a symbol of penal authority in ancient Rome. Although fascist parties and movements differed significantly from one another, they had many characteristics in common, including extreme militaristic nationalismcontempt for electoral democracy and political and cultural liberalism, a belief in natural social hierarchy and the rule of elites, and the desire to create a Volksgemeinschaft German: “people’s community in which individual interests would be subordinated to the good of the nation.

At the end of World War II, the major European fascist parties were broken up, and in some countries such as Italy and West Germany they were officially banned.

Beginning in the late 1940s, however, many fascist-oriented parties and movements were founded in Europe as well as in Latin America and South Africa. Although some European “neofascist” groups attracted large followings, especially in Italy and France, none were as influential as the major fascist parties of the interwar period.

I have personally heard and felt the result of these horrible words In Spanish and most recently in English. Years ago they were in Italian and German. Same hatred, different language.
