On Opposing Fascists

(This is a reaction to a discussion of the French elections over on Crooked Timber.)

This discussion is so much a reprise of the arguments that led up to a Trump victory. “He can’t possibly win,” “He isn’t so bad,” “They’re both the same.” etc., etc., etc.

And then he did, he is, and they are not.

Fight the fascists. Fight them with all your heart and mind and soul. Remember that what is at stake is the peace of Europe and the world itself.

Le Pen is a real threat. There is no time to get slack until after the election and even then. . .

Thank you. It is discouraging to me how divided the opponents of fascism are, and it's good to see someone who is willing to fight.
