Trump is OK because they called Reagan a fascist too?!?!

I vaguely recall Reagan being called a Fascist because of how he handled student demonstrators on state campuses. I don't recall it being a common label. Yet someone on Diane Rehm this morning was defending Trump with that meme.

1. Every republican for the last 40 years has been called a fascist by someone.

Everyone seems to agree that Nazis and Fascists are bad, so it's become a quick and easy (and usually lazy) way to say that someone is bad without having to go through all the trouble of really explaining why.

3. Then when the wolf actually does come calling, no one pays attention to the warning.

2. Oh yeah. Fascism is an ideology conservatives love.

Some have even made statements that Hitler and Mousilinni had some good things about them. I've heard this personally from several powerful political folks. My relatives fought the above criminal killers and would roll over in their graves to hear the BS some people say. Fascism will come bearing a cross and a vision to protect the people who matter. As opposed to those who don't.
