Alright I need some help with words, is "fascist" really the right word to use here? For example, if I were to call the leftists fascist, people would just laugh at me.

I mean, fascist may be the right word on a definition level, but there must be a better word to use.

The only people who would laugh, at this point, at the idea of the Left being fascist are the leftists themselves. They are too blinded by their indoctrination to see that their safe spaces, political correctness, and shutting down of debate all over the US in universities and lower level education effectively make them fascists. They seek to bully, eradicate, beat and bludgeon all speech that doesn't completely agree with their narrow views. This, my friends, will not do.

Njaea, I'm not so sure about that. The thing is that people have a very firm idea of what fascism is, and that the left is the very opposite of fascism. So outright saying "the left are fascists" will/might lead to people just writing you off as crazy without ever thinking about it. To them, it sounds just as absurd as saying something along the lines of "the blacks are actually KKK members".

What I want to do is to say the same thing, but in a different way. Perhaps by calling the left oppressive or some other word. Just something that wouldn't make every day average people immediately stop listening.

You know, I don't know what the right word is to describe them, fascist doesn't sound right though. But the statement "You're not allowed to say anything that they don't agree with" is certainly true. Or was. They persecute you under the guise of political correctness and do everything they can to destroy you personally. However, I feel\hope there is a huge backlash coming which is why I think Trump is so popular.

You're not allowed to say anything that they don't agree with

I think normal people are quite capable of identifying this phenomenon, even if it has to be pointed out to them.

"Fascism" refers specifically to the Italian Fascism devised by Mussolini, in a lesser sense also to its Spanish and Croatian counterparts and German national socialism.

A better term may be "Authoritarian" or "Autocrat", but that's not what Danzig said in the interview.

Fascist is fitting as it gives context to what methods Democrats use to push their narrative. Glenn Danzig isn't a brilliant political thinker or anything but just has a sort of common opinion that common people can understand. When it comes to speaking to common people the less semantics or complications you use the better.
