How ignorant are progressives to call themselves "liberal" and conservatives "fascists"?

The democrat party is the the party of corporatism (tax-payer funded bailouts and public ownership of industry), nationalized healthcare, censorship, hatred, and racism... yet the indoctrinated minions of this new nationalistic brand of socialism have been trained to call republicans "fascists",... show more The democrat party is the the party of corporatism (tax-payer funded bailouts and public ownership of industry), nationalized healthcare, censorship, hatred, and racism... yet the indoctrinated minions of this new nationalistic brand of socialism have been trained to call republicans "fascists", "racists", and "Nazis" without having the slightest clue what these words in their historic context mean.

The modern progressive who calls himself "liberal" has no right to that word at all. A classic liberal believed in small government, self-determination, civil disobedience, and the individual over the state. The modern progressive democrat wants NONE of that. They push for something quite the opposite of that. What the modern progressive MOST resembles is the National Socialist of 1930s "progressive" Germany.

Do today's progressives have the slightest clue that they, not their opponents, were yesteryear's fascistic-leaning national socialists?
