Having defined a certain category to be The Evil, anything that feels bad can be squeezed into that concept. For example, the word “fascism” often refers to any political position the user of the word happens to dislike. This usage of the word is unfortunate not only because it's often unfair, but also because it makes it harder to criticize actual fascism. The same principle applies to words such as "nazism", "marxism" and "cultural marxism".

This is an abstraction of categorism.
