Right. So you have never actually watched CNN or Fox news?
Fascism is an authoritarian political ideology (generally tied to a mass movement) that considers individual and other societal interests subordinate to the interests of the state. Fascists seek to forge a type of national unity, usually based on (but not limited to) ethnic, cultural, racial, religious attributes. Various scholars attribute different characteristics to fascism, but the following elements are usually seen as its integral parts: nationalism, statism, militarism, totalitarianism, anti-communism, corporatism, populism, collectivism, and opposition to economic and political liberalism.[1][2][3][4][5][6]
That is what fox news and the neocon's advocate in the name of protecting us. Reagan and most of the conservatives of his administration would call this an abomination, but it's done in his name.
Communism is an ideology that seeks to establish a classless, stateless social organization based on common ownership of the means of production. It is usually considered a branch of the broader socialist movement that draws on the various political and intellectual movements that trace their origins back to the work of Karl Marx.
Where a watered down version of this is what you see in lesser form advocated by CNN, it is what the left wing radicals advocate. They differ in what they want to justify it with, but it comes to the same thing in the end. A loss of liberty.

And to be honest, from the time of my first federal election I was eligable to vote, in 1992, until the current George Bush got elected, I was about as right wing as they came. Actually seeing the effects of the way Bush rules the country has had me question and change almost every assumption I had up to that point. That is the reason for the radicalization. And if you're comfortable with our government openly claiming the right to torture U.S. citizens in the name of protecting those citizens, I'd have to think you are among the conservative radicals. No disrespect intended.
