Not really a prediction but more of a definition. In 1944, former Vice President Henry Wallace wrote, "The Danger of American Fascism" for The New York Times.

The piece contains little gems such as this:

"They claim to be super-patriots, but they would destroy every liberty guaranteed by the Constitution. They demand free enterprise, but are the spokesmen for monopoly and vested interest. Their final objective toward which all their deceit is directed is to capture political power so that, using the power of the state and the power of the market simultaneously, they may keep the common man in eternal subjection."

Hmm, I wonder who that sounds like?
