Do such people actually know what Fascism is? Have they studied it?

Unfortunately, Fascism has an undeserved bad reputation. Regardless of this reputation, Fascism is a very sensible economic and social ideology. First and foremost, Fascism is an economic system in which a nation’s government plays a central role in monitoring all banking,
trade, production, and labor activity which takes place within the nation.

Such monitoring is done for the sole purpose of safeguarding & advancing the nation and its people. Under Fascism, the government will not approve of a business activity unless that business has a positive impact on the nation as a whole and the people of the nation - this is the axiom which determines everything within the economic aspect of Fascism.
In other words, the government asks, "Is XYZ Enterprises good for our nation and our people? If yes, it’s approved. If no, It’s not approved. When they ask, is it good? they mean, “Is XYZ Enterprises good for the workers, do they pay a fair wage, do they produce a product or provide a service which advances our nation & our people technologically,
morally, spiritually, health-wise, etc???”

For example, a pornography company would not be allowed because pornography
corrupts people generally and exploits & degrades women particularly

Also, “free” trade agreements (such as what the U.S. has with China) would never be
allowed because such trade agreements result in companies sending jobs overseas (where labor is dirt cheap). Such an activity, of course, would undermine a nation’s labor class. This is entirely unacceptable and thus not allowed under a Fascist economic model.
