Fascism is something not desirable

“Noting the similarities in tactics and even uniform between Mussolini’s Blackshirts and Antifa’s street warriors, many conservatives reveled in the irony. The so-called “anti-fascists,” they argued, were actually fascists. But they aren’t fascists, and conservatives’ giggling to the contrary demonstrates the PC trap. Some Antifa members are anarchists; others are Communists. All are very bad fellows. But they are not fascists. By describing them as such, conservatives have accepted the radicals’ premise that fascism uniquely threatens the peace and body politic. As Orwell observed, “The word Fascism has now no meaning except in so far as it signifies ‘something not desirable.’ ” And that is precisely how the radicals want it.”
