The evangelicalism thing would be funny if socialism was entirely the works of marx and hasn't been expanded upon (and also put more simply) by many people since then.
Also people quoting Orwell for anti-socialist reasons is always hillarious, Orwell was a fucking socialist, just not an authoritarian stalinist.
He was on watch lists and fought with anarchists against the fascists in the spanish civil war.
Fascism is interesting, it takes ideas from socialism, many fascists were socialists to begin with, to argue there is no link between some socialist ideals and fascism is disingenuous, but it's also disingenuous to remove any links between fascism and capitalism, monarchism, nationalism etc.
Socialism aims to produce equality through the seizing of the means of production for the workers, fascism argues that capitalism hates the workers, but also argues for strict classes, but that the main organisation of society should be the nation, not the people, and that the nation is beyond class distinctions.
Basically it twists socialist/revolutionary terms and discourse as a way of keeping elements ot the status quo intact.
Theres a reason why fascism rises in times of austerity much like socialism, it's the final tactic of the bourgeoisie to preserve their privelege, by trying to co-opt the working classes into a reactionary police state, and fighting against class consciousness to produce proletarians who acts against their own self interest (i.e. socialism).
Thats why the Nazis got support from people who would otherwise have been left wingers, and why they eventually killed and purged those left wing elements from themselves once they'd consolidated power.
While Mussolini had once been a member of the Socialist party (banished from the party for his rampant support of World War I), Hitler fought leftists from the first. Thus it is not without irony, that in the name for his party Hitler used “socialist,” (Nazi = National Socialist) conceding to the engrained consciousness the German masses had for leftist ideals. It should be noted that fascism supported the community ideal, but not the grass-roots power of direct community democracy as Socialism demands, but the obideance and unity of the community to vanguard of the Nation. Further, orthodox fascism constantly parrots the Communist lexicon of working class struggle, etc, for reasons of populism. Neo-fascism, on the other hand, disdains any trace of Socialist/Communist terminology in thier labels, and instead appeals to new populist roots: the modern aspirations of many workers to be wealthly, to be stronger than others, etc.
Fascism championed corporate economics, which operated on an anarcho-syndicalist model in reverse: associations of bosses in particular industries determine working conditions, prices, etc. In this form of corporatism, bosses dictate everything from working hours to minimum wages, without goverment interference. The fascist corporate model differs from the more moderate corporatist model by eradicating all forms of regulatory control that protect workers (so-called "consumers"), the environment, price fixing, insider trading, and destroying all independent workers' organisations. In fascism, the corporate parliament either replaces the representative bodies of government or reduces them to a sham and the state freely intervenes in the activity of companies, either by bestowing favouritism, or handing them over to the control of rivals.
