Somebody in the World has a Fascist Agenda

I've had it up to here with these people. I want my language back.
According to the American Heritage Dictionary, fascism is "a system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, stringent socioeconomic controls, suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism."
If one considers motive, means, and opportunity, it is much more likely that the Bush administration is guilty of fascism than a bunch of guys in caves in Afghanistan or wherever.
For sixty years the United States has stood solidly behind and given unflinching support to Zionism and the State of Israel. Recently people who oppose our position have begun to explore ways take more direct action against us. I'm not saying we've been wrong. I'm saying that it's just a tiny bit disingenuous for us to act like we've never given anybody in the Muslim world the least bit of provocation. Apart from destroying Iraq for no apparent reason, what is the last positive thing we did for them?
Terrorism is a very real issue in the world. It should not be used as a pretext for transforming our republic into a police state.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the President is said to be trying to push through more of the same judicial nominees before he loses control of the Congress.

Update: See Keith Olbermann's response to Rummy's questionable assessment of reality.

Exactly!! This administration is taking advice from Goerring (leading people who don't want war in Iraq into one by convincing them that they have been attacked by Iraq) and naming their the beginning of the invasion shock and awe, the name the Nazis used for the bombing of London, and rounding up Muslims and locking them away and chummying up to some of the churches just like Hitler and Mussolini did, and they dare to try to point the other way?

Shame of them.
