Convenient you had that swastika lying around

So the right wing nut jobs wish to infuse fascism into the discussion, Nazi German fascism in particular? What exactly were the hallmarks of German Fascism?

Intense nationalism.
Aggressive, warlike militarism.
Empire building.
The total cooperation of government and corporate profiteers.
The right of the government to hold people without charge on the suspicion that they are "the enemy"
The cleansing of the homeland of all "illegitimate" outsiders, including gays, Jews, non-whites, liberals, intellectuals.
The adherence of all to one majority, white supremacist dogma.

Sound familiar? Careful painting that swastika folks, lest you tar yourself with your own brush.
