I don't know if its fascist as just a typical bully mentality. Two
bullies in a playground won't face off against each other, they will
find the weakest kid on the playground and make sport of him. I suppose
if you look at it in a "Lord of the Flies" way, you could make that
association, and I'm sure there's plenty of schoolyard bullies that
wound up leading the Reich.
