Your attitude to strangers is typically fascist.
No chap. Fascism is a nationalistic politico-economic system that places emphasis on a permanent wartime economy where citizens are mobilized under a one party state.

My attitude to strangers depends on the stranger, but is usually welcoming and honest.

However, if someone walks into my house and shits on the carpet, I will be rather uncivil to them.

When that person continues to behave in a manner suggesting they're just here to fuck you and everyone else off, then I think it's perfectly logical to call them out as the flaccid muppet they are.

You assume illogically that the deviant should act normally if they wish to be accepted. Typically, fascist attitudes are deviant.
Actually the opposite, I clearly stated that if the deviant examined his deviation from the norm and found it to be reasonable, logical and backed by empirical evidence then he should keep it. Did you not actually read my post?

remain deviant with no qualms,
Clear enough? Posting something a person did not say or imply to demolish their argument or point is called straw manning.

I dismiss you as irrelevant, kindly stay dismissed.
