Vox: "Don't call all American white supremacists "Nazis." Their ideology of hate is homegrown."

Using the term distances us from our history and reality.

“Nazi” feels like a foreign import, something that was defeated long ago. But the white supremacy that descended on Charlottesville — and that has a sequel rally planned for this weekend, in Washington, DC — is not some distant threat. It’s a homegrown ideology, and it’s one that we are far from defeating.

The Post-Star (Glens Falls, NY): "Letter to the editor: Let Trump be known as the fake president"

Editor:

The Fake President: This POTUS has made a dangerous decision to “brand” any opposing element as “fake news,” even the real news and real FBI/Justice Department intelligence. He has even gone as far as to rewrite the facts of what he said during his latest meeting with his supreme leader Putin in our national transcripts. These are not the actions of the real president of the United States, they are the actions of a compromised puppet of the KGB. They are the actions of a cruel dictator “wannabe” who has respect for no one or no thing except himself and his own interests. So let's go ahead and concede to allow this reckless abomination to continue to use his new brand — fake!

Trump was not elected by the populous; he won by Electoral College and was most likely assisted by Russia — fake election/fake results/fake president. He started with a fake inaugural crowd size. He has fake wealth, fake good health, fake full head of blonde hair, fake skin tone, fake teeth, fake relationship with his spouse, fake friends, allies and lawyers; fake loyalties, fake empathy, fake promises, fake leadership abilities. He's not even been able to fire a single individual from the White House to their face; fake courage, fake strength and fake convictions.

Yes! Let this “brand” follow him into history as we will all surely one day look back and see this disruptive beguiling man-baby as “The ‘Fake’ President.”
