The Horrifying thought that keeps coming back to me.....It will be called "Americanism"

Last edited Mon Oct 1, 2018, 03:59 PM - Edit history (1)

Doturd so wants to be just like his hero, Putin, that he (with willing, compromised, and traitorous Republicans) will advance a Fascist Dictatorship to America.
Beware. With a Democratic takeover of the House in 36 days, how soon after could Martial Law be declared?

This has been a long time coming for Republicans.

Excellent article about the underpinnings of what we are witnessing today:

This November, vote like your life depends on it....because it does.

5. I still can't believe they think Qanon is a thing.

Even though most of the world has recognized it as 100% grade a bullshit.

4. I actually find the article compelling :

In 1944, an article called “American Fascism” appeared in the New York Times, written by then vice president Henry Wallace. “A fascist,” wrote Wallace, “is one whose lust for money or power is combined with such an intensity of intolerance toward those of other races, parties, classes, religions, cultures, regions or nations as to make him ruthless in his use of deceit or violence to attain his ends.”

Wallace predicted that American fascism would only become “really dangerous” if a “purposeful coalition” arose between crony capitalists, “poisoners of public information” and “the KKK type of demagoguery”.
