Keep it warm. Even if it’s gone underground, it will sprout again.

Conservatives have shepherded Fascism through its dark night of the soul. Having had its butt whipped during World War Two, it was not, unfortunately, dispelled completely. Discredited, yes. Rendered clawless, kind of. Muzzled, more or less. Extirpated from the human political vocabulary and excreted into History’s lavatory? Certainly not.
