    "Isn't it funny that most Fascist regimes were "Left?"" - Bernie This curious 'fact' of your escaped both leftists and Fascists in the age of Fascism. ALL Fascist governments of the 20th century were bitterly opposed to 'leftists', 'socialists' and 'communists.' Anyone the least familiar with the age, the writings of Fascists, and of leftists is well aware that the Fascists defined themselves as right and leftists were opposed to them. I do not know where the insane idea that Fascists were leftists comes from. Ignorance and propaganda are the prime suspects. Were this 40 years ago we might have suspected a bad batch of LSD. I suggest you look into the Italian Fascists and their embrace of Revisionist Jews such as Irgun. Clearly Jabotinisky was not a Fascist, but he certainly was from the 'right'. And he was celebrated by Mussolini while he was opposed to, and by, Israeli 'leftists' such as Ben Gurion. If Fascist were 'leftist' then it is a reality which totally escaped both the 'left' and the 'right' in the period between 1920 and World War II.
