What's the furthest to the right your country has been?

Angel Davis

A couple of weeks ago, I made a "what's the furthest to the left" your country has been. Now, let's do the opposite: in the entire history of your nation, how far to the right has it been. For me, the answer is pretty obvious, with the murderous Pinoshit scumbag. So, how about you guys?

Not sure about nationally, but regionally in the first third of the 20th century Western Canada had an experience of far-right nativist populism, including anti-Semitism as an organising force, and an active eugenics program.

Well this in modern history I guess but it depends how you classify 'right wing' if we go back to the time of Kings and feudalism.

Tbh, in a traditional sense, a monarchy probably is more right wing than Thatcher, but she's probably more identified with the right than say, any other king the UK had

The furthest right we've been was with our first prime minister, who drank so much that he had to sit down or lean on chairs whenever he was having his pictures taken so that he wouldn't stumble around the place. Aside from him, its been constant centrism from what I can tell.

The US was probably the most right wing at its founding, though the Trump administration still has a chance to take that spot, this tax cut gets him at least 3/5ths of the way there.

Him alongside Nixon are my two picks for american presidents I hate the most. Nixon mostly due to my bias (he pretty much orchestrated the 1973 coup, along Kissinger) and Reagan, not only for being extremely neolib, but also for sucking Pinoshit's dick

Laureano Gomez the colombian nazi, and that's not exageration he literally was ambassador in germany during the rise of hitler, and expressed his liking for him and for franco, he belived that people were stupid, and any power to them would result in evil communism. And he got to power in a retarded way, there was literally two candidates and the other one retired for fear of his safety, and laureano got into power because of that, his first action was to suspend the courts, and reduce civil liberty, he then created a secret police that killed every progressive liberal and communist, after that he created a constitutional assembly that would modify the constitution to be more like nazi germany, in the middle of that assembly it seems that god himself saw him, and that he was literally a nazi, and sent him a heart attack, in the confusion a general overthrew him and banished him to spain

We had an unsurprisingly incompetent military dictatorship, which the local reactionaries still want back every once in a while. But now, after the """leftist""" party that hogged the label accross the entire society was smeared past the ground and into the Earth's core, things are looking bad for next year's election. There's a chance we'll elect someone far worse than Trump in every regard.

Definitely Andrew "old hickory" Jackson

former general who defeated the British in New Orleans
massively expanded the powers of the president
genocides the Indians
owned a plantation full of slaves (Just a few miles from my house actually)
marched the Indians down the trail of tears
massive right wing populist
had drinking parties on the white house lawn when he got elected
anyone who talked smack about him, his wife, or the job he was doing was challenged to a fuel
Jackson always won

He is basically what Trump babies wish Trump could be but the Donald is just too incompetent and retarded to pull it off.

You could choose any time since WW1 for the US but the 1968 election is a point of no return. The Vietnam war was widely unpopular but both parties put up pro war candidates, although Nixon lied about his pro war stance. Red scare conspiracy theories had become orthodoxy in American politics and a police riot took place on the floor of the Democratic convention. A wave of assassinations took out figures that could be charitably described as left wing and the military simply continued its mass murder campaign in Indochina, totally free from civilian oversight.

Right now. The starkly Christian and conservative party is consciously ignoring the rise of fash, because it works as their muscle now, and a tent party comprised of fash and neoliberals acts as fake opposition. Also they are almost surely going to be reelected because they mix fash rhetorics with social security the neoliberals in power have ignored.

Thank you neoliberals, who having lost the election are now basically dead, and they're perceived by the majority of the society as "the commies". Basically, I live in a country where succdems are called "the commies" on a regular basis and the fash party has called for them to be banned.

Before that, of course in the feudal times. Between the wars, we had openly anti-Semitic and fash parties, but they have never been in power.

'How far to the right a country is' is very ambiguous, but I'm gonna define it as the prevalence of class consciousness under capitalism.
Defined this way, in Finland, things might be worst right now, or they might have been a couple of years ago. It's the usual story. Things are discussed in terms of rich and poor, as opposed to capital and labour, the 'left' has nothing to offer but gay marriage and calling everybody racist, and the only people with worker appeal are reactionary idealists.

What I meant by "how far to the right" was that I was referring to a government of a country, and how far right it performed/acted regarding economics, social issues, etc. But your definition is nice aswell

1964 military coup
Massive repressions to the media, censorship, mass abductions of civilians suspected of being communists, torture, murders, and numerous american-led death squads spread throughout all of South America
At one point, the use of lethal weapons against riots was approved
All south american military regimes were bad, but I still think we had it worse, mainly because of how shady and secret everything was, there is people missing to this day

Easton Bailey

Not to mention how it forever killed any kind of leftist organization in the country, the left had a extremely intimate relationship with the military, mainly because of common nationalistic goals of economic independence and the wish to free the country from the american sphere of influence
After the coup, numerous purges to the command structure eliminated any leftist presence in the armed forces, and to this day the left and the armed forces have this hostile feelings between them, even if there is some leftists there
And what are you supposed to do when the entire country's armed forces want to see you dead?
