In 2005 Paulo Di Canio admitted to being a fascist. Due to this and making a fascist salute for the third time in a year, he was suspended. I believe everyone has a right to believe what they want and have their own views but some beliefs are best to be kept to yourself.
His views are certainly fascist. If his views reflect those of national socialism then he is a fascist. Fascism is the union of the state with corporations, and those seem to be his views. I mean giving the seig heil salute? Come on. That's all the proof you need to show fascism.
Paole Di Canio himself has proclaimed and admitted to being a fascist. He did this in 2005. Publicly he got in trouble with authorities for using a salute commonly used by fascist groups. Finally, he is known to look up to and emulate a proclaimed fascist, Benito Mussolini. These, among others, clearly demonstrate that Paole Di Canio is indeed a fascist.
He was having an appearance with the media and the people attending with him, were not happy with his views and he was called out to be a fascist. He did not like this type of interaction and showed his true color. He didn't hide his ideals or thoughts from anyone.
