The answer is no.
“Björn Höcke is public enemy number one in present-day Germany. At least that’s what German media suggest. Höcke is a leading exponent of the “völkisch” wing of Alternative for Germany (AfD), the country’s radical right-wing populist party. And Höcke is a fascist. That’s what a German provincial court ruled a couple of months ago. Yet this did not prevent voters in Thuringia, Höcke’s home state, from supporting the AfD in this fall’s regional election. …
To be sure, the radical right of the 21st century are highly xenophobic and, more often than not, also racist. Yet unlike yesterday’s fascists, today’s radical right-wing leaders — from Marine Le Pen to Matteo Salvini — propagate neither territorial expansion nor anything close to the racial laws of the 1930s, which marked the beginning of a policy of mass murder. There is a distinction between yesterday’s fascism and today’s radical right-wing populism. Calling the likes of Björn Höcke a “fascist” cannot but dilute the meaning of fascism, which is a slippery slope.”
In the 21st century, the conflict in our times is internal to states and it is vertical between populists and nationalists and cosmopolitan liberal elites in metropolitan areas over issues like mass immigration, multiculturalism, transgenderism and political correctness.
In the 20th century, the conflict was external and was horizontal between states over the settlement of World War I. Mussolini wanted to create a new Italian Empire in Africa. Hitler wanted to overturn the Treaty of Versailles, destroy the Soviet Union and create a new German Empire in Eastern Europe. The British, French and Americans defended the liberal world order.
