Therein lies the problem. The political spectrum in the US is skewed so far towards the right that most Americans are either full-on fascists or “moderate conservatives.” Wanting basic protections for immigrants/LGBT/POC, as well as common-sense restrictions on semi-automatic handguns and rifles is considered “far-left” by US standards.

You REALLY do not appear to have virtually any clue about what the word fascist actually means, at all, here—nor that the overwhelming 80-90% majority of the American population, nation-wide, are not fascists.
When looking at the actual, full-on reality of the situation, the only people who sincerely believe in such demonstrably false, fanatical demagoguery are people who are either hardcore, rhetoric-vomiting old-school boomer liberals/progressives and radicals (along with gen xers and older millennials of the sort whose ideological view line up with that of Rage Against the Machine), anarchists, tankies, other communists, Marxists, and far-left libertarian and authoritarian radicals. I strongly suspect that one of these political positions represents yours, though if not, feel free to inform me.
That aside, I must say that I’m somewhat sorry if this seems like a dramatic shift in tone on my end, yet hearing you proclaim such absurd and blatantly false talking points is beyond anything that shouldn’t be first met with anything other than outwardly indifferent dismissal.
