The fascist American left
Joe Biden's labeling of Trump-supporters as "semi-fascist" is yet another example of the strategy of "projection" — accusing the opponents of the progressive left of the very things the left is guilty of. In point of fact, today's American left has become explicitly fascist.

Mussolini's pamphlet The Doctrine of Fascism (1932), the 25-point program (1920) of the German Workers Party (which was soon renamed the National Socialist German Workers Party) and the 1919 Manifesto of Mussolini's new Fascist Party in Italy[.]
