I think you are either misunderstanding my posts or have some unusual definitions of conservatism or fascism. Perhaps you are reducing conservatism to religion and social views? Or understand conservatism or fascism to be whatever Republicans are doing?
Monarchies and theocracies are conservative. I’m not sure why do you think I believe otherwise. Sure, they have leaders, but it’s not the same as the fascist Leader. A king claims divine rule or noble ancestors, a dictator claims might makes right, a religious leader claims to follow the will of God/gods. But a fascist leader claims to embody the will of the people and the fascist ideals (like the cult of action without thinking). Kings and dictators want you to pay taxes and know your place. Religious rulers want you to obey the rules of their religion. A fascist leader wants you to be a fascist and obey their commands without thinking.
I also never said that conservatives (people with many conservative ideas) are opposed to fascism, but that conservatism is opposed to it. Conservatism and fascism are at odds with each other. But fascism is not opposed to people with conservative ideas, it tries to attract and draw them in. It often looks attractive to them, so many of them do not oppose it. It’s designed to appeal to masses, in big part to conservatives. It uses syncretism, appeals to past, agrees with some conservative ideas. But then it promotes fascist ideas in those people. Ideas of change, revolution, struggle against “decadence” of the existing order. Ideas of violence, fight, heroism in death for the leader. Those ideas are not conservative.
Uprooting an established parliamentary democracy in favor of a new leader (not previous king who was temporarily in exile or something, but a new ruler) is a revolution. Revolution is not a conservative act by definition. Revolutionaries might have some conservative views, but they also need to have some kind of revolutionary views. Otherwise, they wouldn’t do it.
And it’s worth remembering that people can follow multiple ideologies at the same time, even opposing ones. It doesn’t have to make sense to others. Just because someone has some conservative and some revolutionary views, doesn’t mean that conservatism is revolutionary.
