Who's lynching whom?

I'm having so much trouble lately with the terminology of Britain's enlightened and civilized political debate.

Help me out here.

Is a "fascist lynch mob" a mob of fascists who want to lynch people who disagree with them? or is it a bunch of open minded people who want to string up fascists for being closed minded?

And how do you tell the difference?

So hard to keep score.

Well, coming from the 'enlightened' quarters (ie, liberals) as a subjective term, it usually means people like you and me.

Objectively, it means a bunch of lentil-smoking hippies who've had their day and are only making everybody miserable by trying to prolong it with bullyboy tactics of intimidation etc.

Does this mean you've been upgraded to a member of the fascist lynch mob?
