There seems to be a recent effort to dilute the term "facist" because it's being used (not unreasonably) to describe the far right. See also; edgelords trying to make out that because the Nazi party was called the 'National Socialist Party' that therefore socialism == nazis.

I will admit though, that for someone living under an authoritarian regime, it doesn't really matter if it's a left- or right-wing system, when the police are busy kicking the shit out of you.
