If the Prime Minister, the Deputy Prime Minister, several members of cabinet and many caucus members had fascist backgrounds, would that be a matter of legitimate public interest?
If the government appointed dozens of “former” fascists to key government posts, would that be a matter of concern?
If the government was steadily implementing a fascist agenda, clearly drawn from the policies of fascist parties, should the public be informed?
If you answered yes to all three questions, would you answer the same if I substituted the phrase “Christian fundamentalist” for “fascist”?
It’s easy to see where I am leading here.
If I substituted the word Marxist, for fascist or Christian fundamentalist would you still answer yes to all three questions?
If not, why not?
