Defining the far right isn’t really that hard when you’ve got a list of things they believe to compare them to.

In 1994 I learned a set of characteristics that apply to authentic fascists and under what conditions they can come into power. Based on this definition, I said Donald was a fascist before the 2016 election. Since he’s been in office, the evidence in support of that contention has grown much stronger.
