1. They have not been voted in - they are a junior partner
in a multi party coalition.
2. They are a mere political party - no longer a powerful,
attractive, and superficially plausible ideology.

Read before flaming: I am quite aware that the fascists were a
political movement, not a military coup.

the ideology that made that political movement possible is dead,
