Fascism is largely the ideology in which an authoritarian and nationalistic right-wing system of government and social organization accrues power. Questions may not be about applying the term to current politicians.

Per a prior Meta discussion (Should we allow questions where we are attempting to apply the term "fascist" to a modern political figure?) a moderator posted this

No, we should not allow this.
When we post questions about the political positions of individual people, then we should do so by asking for actual positions on specific issues. We should not ask whether or not abstract labels apply.

Questions can be about historical usage or various usages of the word itself. Questions like

Is [this modern politician] a fascist?

are subject to closure as off-topic.
