„The fascists of the future will be called anti-fascists.“

—  Winston S. Churchill Prime Minister of the United Kingdom 1874 - 1965

According to research, it has been attributed to Churchill since the 21st century. A similar variation has been attributed to Huey Long a year after he expired, but it’s unclear if he said it either.

The Swiss author François Bondy attributed a similar quote to Ignazio Silone: This reminded me of what Ignazio Silone said in 1945 soon after he returned to Italy from his Zurich exile: "The Fascism of tomorrow will never say 'I am Fascism.' It will say: 'I am anti-Fascism.'" Alternatively quoted as: When I met him in Geneva on the day of his scheduled return home after the long exile in Switzerland, Silone said abruptly: "If at a future moment fascism will return, it will not be so stupid as to say: 'I am fascism.' It will say: 'I am antifascism.'" Source: François Bondy (1976), "European Notebook", Encounter, vol. 47, p. 51.
