He is but this has nothing to do with history, it's just rambling about how "great" Stalin is.

We need to ban all tankies. Stalin was an ardent gaybasher. The gulags were filled with LGBT people.

This part is interesting:

The Panthers sought to run their organization in the city with as little official oversight as possible, and they struggled to reconcile this with their dependent position on the Algerian state. Meanwhile, the Algerian government sought to assert its sovereignty over the newly independent country and likewise struggled to come to terms with the tensions between its own nationalist and internationalist projects. Both groups also struggled to address contradictions within their movements, especially between their tendencies to reassert hierarchies and authority and their desire to be free of earlier forms of them.

Fascists often co-opt leftist talking points and goals. In general, they take advantage of disillusionment with society and turn it towards an interesting fusion of liberalism and reaction. This is how working class, women, and other dis-empowered groups are persuaded.

This article focuses mainly on the BUF, but one of the most prominent post-war Nazis was a woman named Savitri Devi who used to work as a spy in India. Her beliefs are, strange to say the least. She believed Hitler to be a literal divine messiah akin to the avatar of Vishnu, Kalki.

However, from reading about her you'll find that she's very intelligent and articulate, a lot more than the average fascist. In another world, I could easily see her being a prominent feminist or post-colonial thinker. She already was a very strong advocate for environmentalism and animal rights in a time where neither cause was well known.
