Is the Author too stupid to realize that Trump calling some people animals isn’t fascism?
Firstly, the fact that the Author has called Trump a Fascist, is garnering quite the viewership and hasn’t faced any negative repercussions, is evidence we don’t live in a fascist state.
Secondly, has he not heard the chant “No Trump, No KKK, No fascist USA!”
If there were any American Stupidity, it would be that some Americans far too readily hurl the accusation of fascism at Trump whenever possible. If anything, this predilection towards calling people fascists actually muddies the waters with regards to real fascism a la “the progressive who cried fascist.”
And notice how there is very little analysis on the policies themselves.
What would the author suggest we do about illegal immigration? About people trying to enter the border without following procedure? If it is permissible, how many illegal immigrants should be allowed in? 1 million a year? Ten million? And what of the people who follow due process only to watch people slip through the cracks and be defended by “sanctuary cities?”
Does it matter that 80% of Central American women crossing the border are raped? Are we okay to let these people in without any kind of scrutiny?
Sure, Trump called them animals, though when that Migrant Caravan stormed the border, illegal parents were using their children as human shields.
Sure, children are being separated from their parents which is horrific, but this is what happens any time a parent commits a bad enough crime on US soil.
Rather than call Trump a fascist for every comment or tweet he makes, let’s focus on policies and programs that make the world a better place.
Countries can’t exist without borders, and I’m not sure the author is ready to accept that.
