I can't see a direct parallel with the Fascists and Nazis. Clearly they won the day in Italy and Germany (and, by default, Austria) and I think it's the reaction of other Countries to the events that followed that attracts the appeasement label.
The likes of Moseley rallying Fascist support in Britain was largely contained and he had relatively few followers. Consequently there was no need for concern about overthrow of the Government and the whole thing was a public order matter. Freedom of thought and speech was preserved throughout. Our embedded Muslims, on the other hand, are not that small a proportion and maybe we need to think in terms of what Italy and Germany should have been doing to contain matters. Even that isn't simple in the case of Germany because they had the horrors and depravations of the Treaty of Versailles to consider.
Nevertheless, I think he's right about the Muslims being seen as a new Proletariat to be protected by socialism and liberalism. This, of course, takes us in to territory that's been covered in numerous other Threads. Certainly, Australia can't ignore this, having Indonesia and, arguably, Malaysia on its doorstep.
