OEA teacher warns of dangers coming from the Right

The People's World, which publishes the "news and views" of the Communist Party USA (not that there's anything wrong with that), reports from Tulsa on a new coalition formed to combat "ultra-right anti-labor legislative efforts" in Oklahoma. The paper quotes a teacher from the Oklahoma Education Association who warned of the dangers coming from the Right today: 
Too often we've made references to fascism as a knee-jerk reaction, but we are truly up against fascistic thought ... When we're saying, "Business would be just fine if they didn't have labor unions, in order for business to be successful you have to ... deny the right of workers," that's a huge step toward a type of social system that very much resembles fascism.
