American Fascist.

"The American fascist would prefer not to use violence. His method is to poison the channels of public information. With a fascist the problem is never how best to present the truth to the public but how best to use the news to deceive the public. . ." 
– Former Vice President Henry A. Wallace, the New York Times, April 9, 1944

fas-cism n. A system of government that exercises a dictatorship of the extreme right, typically through the merging of state and business leadership,together with belligerent nationalism." (The American Heritage Dictionary 1983) 

This was the generally accepted definition of fascism before the right and people like JD started rewriting its history)
