Assad supporters don’t want to acknowledge their rightward thrust to fascism

Assad supporters, even the most ardent, take great umbrage at being called Assadists. Would they prefer being called fascists? If they really do want peace on earth & their Assadism is based on ignorance that’s just swell but it doesn’t change the fact that they’re marching with fascists, nationalists, anti-Semites, Islamophobes & are part of ushering in massive defeats for freedom struggles around the world.

If you don’t understand Syria, don’t take a position in support of Assad. The road to hell is paved less with good intentions & more with those who jumped on the bandwagon to be trendy.
