Kevin Passmore’s definition of fascism has ten characteristics split across five main areas. Donald matches or partially matches all of the characteristics.
In 1994 I learned a set of characteristics that apply to authentic fascists and under what conditions they can come into power.

Alabama Republicans choose homophobic, racist, Islamophobic Roy Moore to run for the US Senate.
