James Hudnall of Breitbart's BigJournalism, has done an excellent four part series on fascism. One of the left's most often used ruse is to associate the right with fascism when, in fact, the opposite is true. Fascism's roots stem from the leftward leaning socialists, hence the National Socialist Party name.
