TC: "...what sort of fascist are you? One from the 'left' or 'right'?"

You've very nearly touched on a deep truth.

The political Left-Right spectrum is best envisioned as being bent into a circle.

The extremists on the far side, as you've hinted, are essentially indistinguishable.

This easy adjustment of the political spectrum mental model from linear to circular helps to clarify things immensely. The new Axis of Extremist Lunacy is a very useful construct. It also clarifies that the Moderates, both Left and Right, can be united against the loons.
