Classic Authoritarian mentality. First they say "because you insulted me I'm going to use my power against you because I can." Then in the very next breath they'll lament.... "Why can't we all just get along?"

And, actually, Fascism refers to a collusion between private corporations and government to subdue a populous and reduce them to subserviant chattle, like the Federal government. This is just plain old-fashioned socialism. Not a specified derivation thereof.... for clarification purposes only.
