The modern home of fascism is the liberal / progressive democrat party.
From : http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=fascism. I’m not usually a fan of referencing the urban Dictionary, but in this case it is dead-bang accurate — except for the definition of “taint”, which I left the link intact for because I liked it.

The only official definition of Fascism comes from Benito Mussolini, the founder of fascism, in which he outlines three principles of a fascist philosophy.
1.”Everything in the state”. The government is supreme and the country is all-encompasing, and all within it must conform to the ruling body, often a dictator.
2.”Nothing outside the state”. The country must grow and the implied goal of any fascist nation is to rule the world, and have every human submit to the government.
3.”Nothing against the state”. Any type of questioning the government is not to be tolerated. If you do not see things our way, you are wrong. If you do not agree with the government, you cannot be allowed to live and taint the minds of the rest of the good citizens.
The use of militarism was implied only as a means to accomplish one of the three above principles, mainly to keep the people and rest of the world in line. Fascist countries are known for their harmony and lack of internal strife. There are no conflicting parties or elections in fascist countries.

So… With regard to that definition, which is accurate, it is clear that the modern liberal progressive democrat is the fascist, with the modern liberal progressive republican a close second.
The fact that a person believes that the Federal government doesn’t have the power to take a person’s wealth by force and redistribute it to those who refuse to work, doesn’t make that person a “fascist”.
People like Bill Nye, who think that “climate deniers” should go to prison? That’s a fascist!
The progressive Antifa (“anti-fascist action”) movement, which “fights” the threat of fascism by committing violence in the streets like Nazi brownshirts? Pure FASCISTS!
The third pillar of fascism, “‘Nothing against the state’. Any type of questioning the government is not to be tolerated.” Um, HELLO?!?!? democrats! Crybaby democrats whined and moaned about George W. Bush the whole time he was in office. He took it quietly. Barack Obama on the other hand, weaponized the IRS against his detractors. FASCIST! So far, other than Trump tweeting his displeasure, he is just taking it.
If you seriously think that Donald Trump is a fascist, then you are an unrepentant idiot who seriously has no clue.
