No. Not at all. (Obama might be)

Definitely. He wants a strong national identity, heavily regulate the borders, reduce civil liberties, continue the drug war, aggressive military action, make the country "self sufficient", and to top it all off, he thinks he's the best thing to ever happen to this country. The guy's a perfect example of a fascist.

Like the article says, the only main fascist attribute he's missing is actively calling for violence. But he's still got some time to make more comments and he already suggested that the black protestor that got beat up at his rally deserved it so.... Maybe it's not far off

I would say calling for someone to be, "roughed up a little," is actively calling for violence.

I think their threshold for violence is a little past that though. I agree, he's on the path, but I think they're looking for more along the lines of "violently achieve the goals" kind of rhetoric.

Yes, it may be a little light on that level. But overall, if it looks like a duck, and it walks like a duck, and it quacks like a duck.....

I said no. He's a fake candidate.

So you said no only because you don't take him seriously as a candidate at all? Surely you can still decide whether or not he has the attributes of a facist...
