Call fascism what it is

AUTHOR’S NOTE: This blog post is not an endorsement of any presidential candidate by the author of this blog post.

At an event in Iowa, Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke compared Donald Trump’s rhetoric degrading immigrants to this country to the rhetoric used by infamous former German dictator Adolf Hitler to degrade Jewish people and others despised by Hitler:

I have absolutely no problem with the idea of Democratic presidential candidates making valid comparisons between Trump and other fascist dictators like Hitler, Mussolini, etc.. In fact, I think that it’s absolutely vital that Democrats call fascism what it is and actively oppose all 14 points of fascism.
