The definition of “Fascism” is the merger of Business and Government.
You’re attempting to taint civil protest by calling the protests against Trump’s illegitimate Presidency “Fascism”.
Not only is that a total misuse of the term, it’s self-evidently WRONG.
The Founding Fathers rebelled against British Rule.
Were they also “Fascists”?
BTW, we’ve seen a lot of “I’m a life-long Democrat, but” lately.
It goes right along with “I’m an Independent but” (insert Right Wing quote supporting Trump).
