Former South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy, who chaired the House Select Committee on Benghazi, re-categorized fascism as a 'center' party after Giorgia Meloni won election in Italy.

Special Report with Bret Baier discussed the election of Giorgia Meloni, and the Republicans focused on attacking the media for not giving her enough props.

Baier turned to Gowdy and said the media could have hailed her for being the first female PM in Italy but instead chose to focus on her political beliefs. (Because we take women seriously, maybe?)

Gowdy, now a Fox News host, agreed and was upset that the New York Times focused on the "hard right" anti-immigrant and anti-gay beliefs of
Meloni's "Brothers of Italy" Party.

Gowdy then consciously pivoted to protect the MAGA cult from similar comparisons.

"I guess what I'm wondering is if you're winning elections. If you are what the people want, at what point does that become the center? Who gets to say what is far-right or hard-right?" Gowdy said.

A political party's stated beliefs are what categorizes them as either far-right, or center-left, conservative or progressive. Gowdy knows this all too well.

Gowdy then claimed Kamala Harris's role as Vice President of the United States is historic too, but just as extreme as a racist, homophobe.

"Look, Kamala Harris is historic she is every bit to the left as the new Italian prime minister is to the right... She's never called hard left or far left," Gowdy said.

That's because Harris isn't hard left.

This is an insane proposition coming from a former US Congressman who is trying to normalize the heinous nature and history of fascism.

How extreme has the GOP become?

You'd expect Charlie Kirk to make this type of statement, not Trey Gowdy.

If enough Americans want to rename the Republican Party, the Nazi party, then suddenly, that makes them a neutral political party?

Got it.
