“When fascism comes to America, it will come wrapped in the flag and waving a cross.” Sinclair Lewis
Trump waved the proverbial cross, claiming he’s a Christian. He’s not. And at CPAC this year, the video of him wrapping himself around the American Flag went viral. The irony is staggering. The irony here is downright scary.
The Holocaust Museum in D.C. lists the early warning signs of looming fascism: Powerful and continuing nationalism. Disdain for human rights. Identification of enemies as a unifying cause. Supremacy of the military. Rampant sexism. Controlled mass media. Obsession with national security. Religion and government intertwined. Corporate power protested. Labor power suppressed. Disdain for intellectuals & the arts. Obsession with crime & punishment. Rampant cronyism & corruption. Fraudulent elections. Recognize any warning signs in Trump? You should.
He’s denigrated and attempted to control the press. Trump TV (FOX) is obsessively lies for him and tries to stifle sources that criticize him. He uses his position to take revenge on his rivals. He handpicked the man standing between him and the Mueller evidence and that handpicked man stepped in and pronounced Trump clear of committing any criminal offense, including obstruction of justice. Convenient.
As for collusion, the evidence right before our very eyes should be more than enough to establish guilt. Trump thinks it’s not a crime if you do it right out in the open. Trump thinks it can’t be a crime if you do it while rich and the President. As for the Mueller report? All we have is just more spin and brainwashing from the Trump propaganda team. Trump’s own apologist and lawyer, Rudy Guilianni, said the infamous, “Truth isn’t truth.” Trump, himself, told his followers: “Just remember. What you’re seeing and reading is not what’s happening.” And now, Trump’s claiming “complete and total exoneration.
