1. It's good to remember but there have been many dead in our present time, especially

in Myanmar where the brown-skinned Buddho-fascists have driven 850,000 Rohingya Muslims
into Bangladesh* plus additional Rohingya Hindus. The worst aspects of fascism survive today,
in many places and in many ways. It appears that learning is optional.

2. Really

You had to add brown skinned Buddhists to your derogatory description of fascists?

3. That's to remind you that white supremacists/Christo-fascists don't have a lock on violence.

4. You could have just said

Buddho-fascist. No reason to add the “brown skin” descriptor unless you have some agenda I’m not aware of.

5. Thanks for your input. The only agenda I have is to increase awareness that fascism is

not the provenance of any single ethnic or religious group.

6. No matter how you couch it

It's still a bigoted comment

7. You're certainly free to make your own judgments. My limitation is that I don't know a

better/more productive way to express myself. All I ask is that you remember this exchange the next time you
read, hear, write or speak the words "white supremacist". I try not to use the language of ethnic bigotry but
sometimes it does describe how I feel about murderous destructive groups so I am capable of being a bigot.
Thanks for giving me more to think about.
