Its authoritarian, its censorship, its propaganda, its underhanded political manipulation, however it is not fascism.

Words mean things, fascism doesn't just mean "bad."

It is a specific form of government, that includes far more than just state control of media.

Please god stop raping the fuck out of the English language.

Ive got a very basic understanding of the word fascism, and ive looked into it more than most people probably would have. Which is why i would love it if they had explained what it was rather than just saying "this is what it isnt".

"Book burning" alone is a pretty good image of fascism which is why i can see its application in the case of the ops, and also in the case of the regressive left.

I guess it is more than that when it describes a mode of government, but it doesnt mean 'anything less than a full government model' is a prohibited use of the term fascist.

"Good thing Le Pen was defeated, so the Muslims can culturally enrich women with Sharia Law, and all its rapes, stonings, acid attacks, and genital mutilations!"

From my understanding:

1) 4chan isn't blocked in France. That's a rumor/fake news.

2) France has had a policy on political blackout before their elections for quite some time.

3) Nothing that juicy was in the leaks other than maybe an offshore account. Nothing people didn't already assume or that offcolor for a politician/banker.

4) Le Pen lacked appeal to many people because of her family and affiliations.

5) Since when have the French not surrendered to invaders?

It's not the result I hopeed for, but ffs don't be like the American leftists about this. Learn from mistakes and come back stronger.

Iirc, they turned off the internet in large parts of Britain and the US to keep some Wikileaks files from being published... Successfully, it seems.

The leaks didn't reveal anything terrible. They were incredibly banal. Nothing like the Hillary leaks that showed her contempt for the Democratic base, her subterfuge against the Sanders campaign, and her complete subservience to the interests of Wall St. and big business. That, plus her lack of campaigning, is what lost her the rust belt.
