Youre right, I dont call him a fascist. Hes certainly anti-democratic, and I say so in the book, but I dont call him a fascist because he isnt violent. If he ends up declaring an emergency at the border over immigration, then I might change my position. Theres a long history of fascists using emergencies to create fear and conflict, so thats a potential red line. If Trump does that, then he really is a bully with an army.
But I do think his approach to the free press, to democratic institutions, to the independent judiciary, is extremely dangerous and anti-democratic. And his general disdain for the rule of law is genuinely alarming. Sean Illing
I have to push back here, because I think youre wrong on the point about violence. In addition to denouncing the free press, in addition to threatening to jail political opponents, in addition to undermining rule of law, Trump has actually incited political violence at his rallies, and hes created an atmosphere in which violence is far more likely.
It seems to me hes checked nearly all the fascist boxes.

This from a cow who waltzed with a Korean dictator known to strap people to cannons.
One of the ridiculous spectacles of my life was seeing Notsobright herself wearing a leather Air Force A2 jacket.
Worse than 1/2 bright.
I still remember her photo being kissed by Hachim Thachi (KLA Kosovo terrorist leader) and in the company of Weasley Clark.
Albright is a traitor. Needs to be fully exposed and her continuing propaganda ended.
Vox sounds like one of the front organizations instigated by Russia to sow discord in the USA. Notice how Democrats are attracted to these outlets.
That’s right - defending the citizens of the republic is now fascism.
If you don’t let illegal immigrants invade your country - you’re a fascist.
If you don’t submit to communism you’re a fascist.
If you don’t turn over your guns to prove you won’t be violent - you’re a fascist.
If you actually use the banks and commerce to silence opposing viewpoints to communism you’re stopping bullying.
If you use force and threats of violence (maxine waters, Obama, antifa, hillary, Pelosi) and, y’know, actually shoot republican elected officials you’re a hero.
There’s a long history of facists taking extreme action to repel the Left because “respectable” politicians did nothing but watch their societies be overrun with sewage. Pinochet and Franco come to mind.
Advice from a forgettable figure in our recent past.
The congealing of centralized global-government-corporate power (fascism) is the antithesis of a little ‘r’ republic, and republican values.
“This from a cow who waltzed with a Korean dictator known to strap people to cannons.”
I see that “Half-bright” is still half bright.....while she was at the State Department, they did nothing to reign in North Korea except run and cower at Kim Mentality Ill’s threats.
So sayeth a woman with an unbroken record of failure, misjudgments, and just plain ineptness.
If you are a decent human being than you are pure evil and not even worthy of life to these savages.
VOX...wipe, then flush.
Always the same error
We are not a democracy, We are a Republic
Our president stands with the patriotic citizens of our country and of the world. In2 short years he has turned the history of the world away from globalism and toward nationalism. He recognizes that the nation state is the strongest and most democratic governmental structure. Wars happen when global visions are forced on independent nation states.Stalin was a globalist. Hitler was a globalist. Obama was a globalist. Stalin sought to destroy the Balkan states. Hitler sought to destroy Europe. Obama sought the destruction of the USA.
