I think that those on today's far left, and the violent behaviour that they perpetuate, is falsely labelled as Liberalism, and should be seen as fascism.

What people are calling Liberalism today, is not actual Liberalism. People don't understand the theory of the ideologies, and just think that, due to the fact that it supports the minority groups, and fights for their rights, that it is Liberalism. This"Liberalism" is some kind of twisted, hybrid version, that uses violence to silence the ideas of those whom oppose them.

I think that their concern and support for the minorities is a good thing, and it gives me hope for the future.

I would call myself a Liberal, and I agree with the fight and support of the minorities, and those that are wrongly treated as secondhand citizens. Yet, infringing on Freedom of Speech, and the opinion of the individuals in such an aggressive manner is not Liberalism. It is, indeed, some hybrid between the two ideologies, with the authoritative and militant approach of the far Right.
