„Fascism is a deformity of capitalism.“

—  Walter Rodney Guyanese politician, activist and historian 1942 - 1980
Context: Fascism is a deformity of capitalism. It heightens the imperialist tendency towards domination which is inherent in capitalism, and it safeguards the principle of private property. At the same time, fascism immeasurably strengthens the institutional racism already bred by capitalism, whether it be against Jews (as in Hitler’s case) or against African peoples (as in the ideology of Portugal’s Salazar and the leaders of South Africa). Fascism reverses the political gains of the bourgeois democratic system such as free elections, equality before the law, parliaments; and it also extolls authoritarianism and the reactionary union of the church with the state. In Portugal and Spain, it was the Catholic church—in South Africa, it was the Dutch Reformed church. p. 310.

„No, fascism is not a power standing above class, nor government of the petty bourgeoisie or the lumpen-proletariat over finance capital. Fascism is the power of finance capital itself.“

„Capital punishment is the most premeditated of murders“

—  Albert Camus French author and journalist 1913 - 1960
Context: Capital punishment is the most premeditated of murders, to which no criminal’s deed, however calculated, can be compared. For there to be an equivalency, the death penalty would have to punish a criminal who had warned his victim of the date on which he would inflict a horrible death on him and who, from that moment onward, had confined him at his mercy for months. Such a monster is not to be encountered in private life.

„When the United States gets fascism, it will call it anti-fascism.“

—  Huey Long American politician, Governor of Louisiana, and United States Senator 1893 - 1935
Originally reported by Robert Cantrell. But years later Cantrell told Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. that that was his own summary of his conversation with Long, not Long's exact words. See They Never Said It by Paul F. Boller and John H. George (1990) https://books.google.com/books?id=6zfnCwAAQBAJ&pg=PA94&dq=when+fascism+comes+to+america,+it+will+be+called+anti-fascism&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjo0sSQ0_TRAhWmwVQKHQ85C9M4KBDoAQguMAQ#v=onepage&q=when%20fascism%20comes%20to%20america%2C%20it%20will%20be%20called%20anti-fascism&f=false. Variant: When the United States gets fascism, it will call it 100 percent Americanism.
