Naturally they can exist - but they are not fascist.  They may act 
reprehensively to their fellow citizens - but they are not a danger 
to the inhabitants of the "advanced" countries - in fact they are 
normally allied to the ruling classes of such countires.  Fascism is 
specifically related to dealing with the reds in the "advanced" 
countries - specifically for controlling working class polticos.
