Fantastic

Very prescient. The criticism that we can’t equate what happened in the 20s and 30s in Europe to now is a false equivalent. Every single fascist uprising was unique. Of course America’s situation isn’t “exactly the same”. That’s not what the hosts are saying. They’re saying that there are similarities between the rise of fascism then and now. Of course American fascism won’t be swastikas and iron crosses. It’s whatever they can use to advance their cause in the situation they find themselves in. The rise of American fascism will be American because if they used French fascist symbolism or Italian fascist history then American conservatives who would become converts to fascism wouldn’t be able to relate to that history without slowly being exposed to that history. It’s why American fascism is guided by things like Qanon and the alt-right rabbit hole. Anyways sorry I just wanted to say that. Great podcast!
