Fascism is an authoritarian and nationalistic right-wing system of government and social organization; (in general use) extreme right-wing, authoritarian, or intolerant views or practice.
Kelsang Gyatso uses religion to justify hate.
Kelsang Gyatso claims his politics is a pure religion that sermonizes his dramatic hate speech spewed from his protest rallies, prolific Internet attacks and his creation of a Buddha named Shugden. For example, his organization over and over calls the Dalai Lama a Nazi, Marxist, dictator, murderer, hypocrite, human rights abuser, traitor, evil, Muslim, cruel, pig, liar, false Dalai Lama, spiritual con man, one of biggest scams of the century, corrupt politician and CIA agent. False claims designed to gain power and wealth.
Kelsang Gyatso invented a 'new tradition' religion for his authoritarian view to demean those outside his cult, claim that Tibetan Buddhism is corrupt and dismiss Tibet's independence from China.
This fascism like all others is a travesty.
Saddest consequence...misleading his followers and clergy into wasting their precious lives. When they leave NKT, many are told that they are going to hell.
Fascism sounds harsh. Like most behaviors, there is a range. Kelsang Gyatso does not send in the tanks. Rather, he sends his clergy and teachers to limit us using his organizational powers, Internet attacks and threats. His tradition is indeed right-wing, authoritarian and intolerant...all at taxpayer expense.
Consider the contract that must be signed to become a teacher in training.
And the dismissal of and litigation threat against a senior teacher.
