98. Fascism
Edited on Wed Aug-05-09 03:38 PM by Hansel
a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism , regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism.

I don't think that people disagreeing with your viewpoint are leaning toward fascism. Forcibly suppressing opposition is pretty much what these mobs are doing. No one is saying they can't have a voice. We are saying they can't stop us from having one. This is a lot different than your interpretation of the concerns.
