Uh huh, but Franco was obviously cool, right?Which speech? I've heard one that she gave in Spain and that was scary AF.
How about you look up the "Brothers of Italy".
EVERY report about her is that she's far right. I'll let you google and pick your 'poison', as it were, on which report to read from.
She's praised Mussolini - and if that's not fascist then you really, REALLY don't know what fascism is.
This woman is a danger to a lot of people and I'd rather be on the side of those who opposed her, kind'a like those who opposed Mussolini and Hitler.
Yeah, because spending 3 1/2 years defending yourself against a fake Russian collusion claim makes it super fucking easy to focus on the country, dipshit.They're both horrible leaders who should never have been elected. They both are too concerned for their ego's and their 'appearances' to focus on the country they were supposed to lead.
So you're saying that Trudeau is a fascist.Which means you're full of it because fascism is NOT left.
What does fascism mean in simple terms?
noun. Britannica Dictionary definition of FASCISM. [noncount] 1. or Fascism : a way of organizing a society in which a government ruled by a dictator controls the lives of the people and in which people are not allowed to disagree with the government.
She just reinforces what I knew all along , it isn’t Trump Derangement Syndrome it is really Conservative Derangement Syndrome .Actually she posted that before Harry quoted it. I just found it funny that she insisted Trudeau is not right-wing and then proceeded to post a definition of fascism that describes Trudeau to a "T".

It's true that as a person trudeau is a fascist. He hasn't exactly hidden it, he's expressed his admiration for totalitarian regimes, his family was great friends with Castro. He viciously attacks anyone who speaks against him or his messages, etc. etcBlah, blah, blah yourself.......Trudeau has done a hell of a lot more than the truckers thing to prove he's a fascist.
Everyone who whines about fascist Hitler and Mussolini. Never hear them cry about Franco who ruled Spain until his death in 1973 or 1974. Think about that a moment. Almost 30 years after the end of WW2 there was still a fascist state in Europe that nobody was warring against. Why not?Franco? If you mean Francisco Franco, who the hell thinks he's cool?

So you're saying you have no problems with Facists as long as they don't do anything outside of their own country "Overmuch"? So - your problem isn't with fascism, it's with how it may or may not affect your personal life.Mostly because Franco didn't do anything major outside of Spain to warrant people's attention overmuch.
Saddam Hussain didn’t do much except fight with his immediate neighbours being Iran and Kuwait outside his own borders, and he didn’t even fight with them at the same time.
The difference is that Spain didn’t have anything that America actually needed.
Saddam in Iraq was ‘convenient’ in that he wasn’t a Saud or from Saudi Arabia, and he wasn’t an angel (none of them are), so America could justify steppingI think Saddam was more your 'run of the mill' dictator, if you want to speak in general terms, especially if you look at others in the ME.
Oh? Re people in Europe being surprised…about dictators in Europe.That doesn't mean he wasn't a terrible fucking human being and he needed to be gotten rid of, but it's like "oh he's from Iraq, okay" and his being a dictatorship wasn't a surprise.
Europe isn’t as Lily White in its history as they might want the world to believe.Throw it to somewhere in Europe and it'd shock people.
Islam is currently ass-backwards, but the Middle East was also a centre of learning at one point…. The origin of our numerical system that most of the world is still using, etc….then Allah…. but it’s really only being the last hundred years where it has really gone to shit…. depending on who you talk to you exempting the European opinion regarding the Crusades.IMO it's all along the lines of "Europe should know better" while "The ME is backwards thus this shit is expected."
Spain wasn’t an oil exporter, so Meh… horrible fucking people rise to the top of the power structure time after time after time. European royalty we’re probably not the most benevolent folks to become royalty.But also true, Spain didn't have anything ANYONE needed after WWII, and Franco keeping his country semi-neutral allowed him a 'pass' as it were. But Franco is like any dictator or fascist; horrible fucking people, should not be allowed power and should be gotten rid of ASAP.
BecauseThe problem is a lot of them now throw out 'elections' as if that helps makes them legitimate (it doesn't) and, IMO, it keeps the rest of the world from stepping in beyond diplomatic condemnations and sanctions. Which unfortunately means we get to sit back and watch that country's society turn to shit.
Even Saddam wasn't seen as a "threat" beyond the Gulf War, until Bush's people lied about WMD's
Yes, I agree that Kuwait’s oil fields where a significant resource to American at that point.and used that as the excuse to go in and take him out (not that this helped, either).
The Middle East even in the 50s and 60s was a very different world than it is now in Burka-Burka-Stan (before the last month of protests anyway which will be interesting to see which way the wind blows afterwards).But then the ME is a whole other world, you could say, and how things were/are done there need to be carefully considered.
