The Mexican Fascist Party (Partido Fascista Mexicano) was a political party that was formed in Mexico in 1922 that was officially based upon Italian Fascism.[1][2] The party was founded by Gustavo Sáenz de Sicilia.[3] It was formed largely in opposition to effects of the Mexican Revolution by urban and rural middle class supporters who opposed socialism and agrarian reform who saw fascism as an alternative.[4] The party's base of supporters were largely conservative, Catholic, and antirevolutionary.[5] The party was viewed with dismay by Italian Fascists, with the Italian ambassador in 1923 stating that "This party was not anything else than a bad imitation of ours, and did not possess the causes of origin and the finalities of it. It, in fact, assumed the aspect of a political movement tending to gather in the whole country old conservative and Catholic forces dispersed by the revolution, and to form, in this way, a party clearly opposed to the actual government."[6]
