Fascism does not involve throwing Molotov cocktails at government officials; quite the contrary, fascism advocates an authoritarian hierarchical government, in which government officials hold all power and any explosive-tossing rebels would be immediately executed.

Thus, eco-fascism would entail the totalitarian government enforcement of radical ecological principles: it would thus be a crime to, say, wear fur, eat meat or not recycle, and in a truly fascist state, it would also be illegal to speak out against this. People on the fringes of the green movement who would love to see this happen can, quite justifiably if not without hyperbole, be called eco-fascists.
