1. Heavily Continuous Nationalism
Fascist push patriots slogans, symbols, songs, carrying a cross and Flags everywhere. He promises America will be the greatest nation the world has ever seen. Wail ignoring much of Climate Change, LGBTQ, Economy, Civil Rights, etc.
2. Human Rights
For fear of enemies, fascist regimes often ignore human right like torture, summary executions,assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.
Donald likes waterboarding.
3. Identification of Enemies
Facist rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial, ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc. Like Muslims banning or deporting Mexicans immigration and many smaller minorities. Even animals and natural environment rights everywhere..
4. Obsession with National Security and militarily.. A facist nation is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized. Trump has about eight countries being bombed.
5. Rampant Sexism
Under facist, gender roles are made more rigid. Opposition to abortion, homophobia and anti-gay legislation A Women's March on Washington, ended at the steps of the Supreme Court cause of Trump.
6. Over control of Mass media Trump claims the media is 90℅ fake news and media is the enemy. Other tight censorship, especially in war time. Everyone has the right to the 1st amendment, so dose Trump. Even when most want to shut him the hell up.
7. Fear is a motivational tool by the government over the masses.Trump uses fear support for his unconstitutional ban on Muslims, whether US nationals or not, from entering the country. His campaign was run using peoples' fear of the "other"-- immigrants, Muslims, black people, Latinx, LGBT, poor people, etc-- by saying that we are the cause of America's downfall.
8. Religion and Government
Government fascist tool Religion to manipulate public opinion. About 90℅ of wars are predominantly religious countries. The Alt right is a combination
9. Corperatism Protected
A fascist nation put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite. Donald is no politican, yet a business man, with 4 bankruptcy and a world record of Lawsuits to line his pockets. Trump allowed Pipelines through Native lands, violating federal treaties and a sovereign nation.Trump always puts corporate interests ahead of American interests,
10. Intellectuals and the Arts
Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, academia and arts.
Trump tries to unionized my artist.
I or a professor or an academic will be censored or can be arrested. Free expression is openly attacked, Trump often refuse to funds to arts and humanitarianism organization
I'm looking at President Obama. He said a lot of nice things, but he had a horrible human rights record. Also, did you see the 2016 Democratic National Convention? It was a very nationalistic, bloody-minded, warmongering, jingoistic event. Military general after military general was invited to speak. All the while, entire delegations were censored, kicked out and a huge protest erupted from the socialist wing of the DNC. This was after the rigged primaries in Nevada, New Mexico. Don't forget what the Dems did to Flint's water supply. Democrats were the "good guys" last decade, but not anymore.
I'll buy that Trump is a corporatist and was a crooked businessman. I'll buy that he says a lot of things to pander to the masses. But name one human rights abuse he's actually done. Name one war he's started or escalated. In fact, if anything, he's normalized relations with Russia--the second most powerful nuclear power in the world behind the US. And the Dems want to keep war with Russia going.
I know the GOP started this spin game decades ago. But the Dems started playing the game too late just when the GOP emerged with a new face: one bent on freedom of speech and avoiding war. It's hard to beat that message.
Here's where democrats have lost ALL their political capital ; One look at Chicago tells us ALL we need to know about REAL Fascism , violent crime , organised community crime , political corruption , people in the streets , too much entitlement spending , isolation from national politics , an absolutely polluted education system , gun confiscation , incredible debt , campus to street violence .
Only thing missing are the brown shirts !
So everyone Agees, Trump is a facist.
That was the easiest thread yet.
Actually, for all of Trump's failures, I see the left as fascist. Brainwashing young minds in colleges and universities, trampling on the ideals of freedom of speech, banning books, bullying any who disagree.
Sorry, the left is currently more of an enemy than Trump.
One thing from the vas majority on this site fails to acknowledge, US lives in a Fascism nation.
Trump actions speaks louder than words about Fascism.
I suppose it must depend on how you defineit. I heard a woman speak the other day. She was 3 when they fled Hitler's Germany. She said pretty much what I just did. The left, right now, resembles the fascist tactics at the outset of their takeover of Germany.
I was on the Canadian national swim team completing in the USSR 1973. Then went back when it change to Russia 2002 to teaching sandsculpture. America today feels like old USSR. Funny how history repeat itself on different parts of the Globe. Wish US could go back in time and relearn what they forgot.
Somethings are better other things are worst.
You try escaping the US. One guy tried to burn his US passport 3times, no go. They will collect from you for the national debt, one way or another in your debtors society. When 90 million baby boomers go to collect their pensions, well! They will treat you like their monopoly Mafia family.
Nazis, white nationalists the KKK and whatever other name they choose to use have aligned themselves very closely with Mr. Trump, a disturbed racist megalomaniac who could care less about the USA:
To have Obama or Trump comparisons to Hitler is outrageous.
Hitler unleashed a war aimed at achieving global domination that resulted in the deaths of tens of millions over six years conflict. That would take more lives and destroy more land and property around the globe than any previous war.
Although over the slower course of the pass 30 and adding it up. US worldwide wars has also cost 10s of millions of lives. The Cost more financial in destructions of land, property, refugees, and poverty which is the greatest killer. All round the globe these wars have cost more than any previous wars. US has fought in 22 major wars in the pass 20 years. Just to name a few.
Iran (1980, 1987-1988), Libya (1981, 1986, 1989, 2011), Lebanon (1983), Kuwait (1991), Iraq (1991-2011, 2014-), Somalia (1992-1993, 2007-), Bosnia (1995), Saudi Opinion., Iraq (1991-2011, 2014-), Somalia (1992-1993, 2007-), Bosnia (1995), Saudi Arabia (1991, 1996), Afghanistan (1998, 2001-), Sudan (1998),
A world war happens every 80 years. The people allowed Hitler's war. Trump has all the making to create a 3rd world war. Can Americans stop him?
So far , Trumps done nothing but attempt to pull out of Obama / Clinton/ Bush catastrophes all over the middle east . Bring political correctness in diplomacy to it's knees , and stop the proliferation of nukes on the Korean peninsula and with Iran .
Yes ......., that's real warmongering .
Since Mikhail Gorbachev took the evil out of his empire and reached arms agreements with Ronald Reagan.
Since U.S. President Donald Trump, headline puts it, is Making America Nuclear again. Reverting to the old way of gaining nuclear stockpiling. Trump says, we have nukes, why don't we use them?
Trump dose more to promote the nuclear arms race then anyone.
What is the sense of pretending to prevent fires, when you start most of them.
With exactly two world wars, 25 years apart, as the only available data points in 10,000 years, where do you get the idea that world wars happen every 80 years?
It's better to rephrase world war to empire social crises every 80 years. Many different empires cycles in history have 4 generation on one 80 year cycle of life in a social crises. Like a cycle of 4 season.
America history of cycle goes back to 1618. America Has Been at War 93% of the Time – 222 out of 239 Years – Since 1776. A world war is when many nation are at war, right now we are considered at world war. America lose of 160,000 men in world war 1 would not fit in the 80 year cycle like 1,200,000 deaths in the American Civil war. Before that the American Revolution was a global war that Fought twice as long as the civil war 1775 -1783.American colonists: the Thirty Years War (1618 to 1648); the three English Civil Wars (1642-1651)
I remember Steve Banon bringing up this history cycle and many did not like it. Plus the ban-on the Muslims too.
You might consider that there is a world war going on - no one else does. You might even consider that the American revolution, with 3 countries involved, as a world wide war, but again, no one else does.
I can understand why no one liked it when Banon brought it up - it has no basis in reality.
Don't like Banon either, yet the idea mades sense. This lead me to authors William Strauss and Neil Howe, describes recurring generation cycle in American history. They laid the groundwork for their theory in their 1991 book Generations,a and in 1997 book The Fourth Turning, US as a series of generational biographies going back to 1584.
If you want to totally denied these these strings of 80 major cycle in America, then your head is stuck in the sand and denier of Trump follows this pattern to the T. US currently bombing Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Syria, and Yemen. In 2016 alone, the country dropped an estimated 26,172 bombs in seven countries, (including Pakistan and Afghanistan), according to the Council of Foreign Relations. You got 3 continents on fire not counting the greater killer, firearms. Within the definition of a world war , just the real big one is building up.
Since Europe started the only world wars we know of, I'd worry about Europe. Even during the height of the Cold War the US and USSR weren't ignorant enough to try that.
Good point. If we remove the area known as "Germany" from the face of the earth will we have no more world wars? Or does that little island in the Pacific count as starting one as it wasn't teamed with "Germany" when it began to fight?
The closest the world has ever been owned by the wealthy Globalist in world history, was over the Second world war. Lead by Rothschilds money suppliers of both sides of the war.
Vas majority of European or American are basically good people. Why blame them other then them allowing heirachary empires to enslaved them.
Follow the ultimate evil of money and you will find the source majority of the problems.
Nothing wrong with capitalism, when mix with socialism it's the best system to date. We will some day find something better than this.
Globalist Corperationism, NWO is the ultimate evil.
Sometimes on this site I feel so alone or crazy.
If you Don't believe me, how about believe George Carlin.
The owners of this country don't want you to know. I'm talking about the real owners now, the real owners, the big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don't. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations. They’ve long since bought and paid for the senate, the congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pockets and they own all the big media companies so they control just about all of the news and information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying, lobbying, to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else, but I'll tell you what they don’t want: They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them. Thats against their interests. Thats right. They don’t want people who are smart enough to sit around a kitchen table to figure out how badly they’re getting f*cked by a system that threw them overboard 30 f*cking years ago. They don’t want that. You know what they want? They want obedient workers. Obedient workers. People who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork, and just dumb enough to passively accept all these increasingly sh*ttier jobs with the lower pay, the longer hours, the reduced benefits, the end of overtime and the vanishing pension that disappears the minute you go to collect it, and now they’re coming for your Social Security money. They want your retirement money. They want it back so they can give it to their criminal friends on Wall Street, and you know something? They’ll get it. They’ll get it all from you, sooner or later, 'cause they own this f*cking place. It's a big club, and you ain’t in it. You and I are not in the big club. And by the way, it's the same big club they use to beat you over the head with all day long when they tell you what to believe. All day long beating you over the head in their media telling you what to believe, what to think and what to buy. The table is tilted folks. The game is rigged, and nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care.
Good honest hard-working people -- white collar, blue collar, it doesn’t matter what color shirt you have on -- good honest hard-working people continue -- these are people of modest means -- continue to elect these rich c*cks*ckers who don’t give a f*ck about them. They don’t give a f*ck about you. They don’t give a f*ck about you. They don't care about you at all -- at all -- at all. And nobody seems to notice, nobody seems to care. That's what the owners count on;
We may have just assumed you consumed too much wine .
I am not like most who are over stress and have to take drugs of some kind to cope with life.
When the game is rigged, I am always still one step ahead with dreams on deadlines and health.
Don't run to the military tanks to be saved. They are trained on a zombie apocalypse mission and will stomp you out like a zombie. Try some organic wine to prepare for a better sane plan, my friend.
Actually ,I prefer micro-brew beers but thanks. You do have to love the conversations of George Carlin's , He was almost always hilarious !
Same thing for Jesus, still parts of their great ideas live on.
Now there you go spoiling it all ..................Carlin and Jesus in the same thought .
I've learn alot of sound perspective from Carlin. Jesus was so vague and with too many wrong translations. Nobody really even knew what Jesus look like.
If your backup plan is Jesus for the zombie Apocalypse, you will need more than luck.
I got plans to live life well for every second of it on green earth, not the snytheic style.
Here is something more in depth.
I don't defend Obama, every Presidents from J. Kennedy onward has gotten generally worst for war and the economy. Nobody notices because majority don't really care. Politican are not good guys, although Jimmy Carter was generally nice.
Out of over a 1000 artist/Corperation contracts. I have been screwed over only 3 different times in 40 years. Once by a Canadian Mafia and the other was MafiaTrump. So I know personally he is bad to the bone.
Give you one Trump human rights abuse? Lol.
I included breaking international laws, natures laws, breaking the Constitution and breaking native treaties. Environment and human rights over Fossil energy and fracking oil. He breaks a range of issues, the US moved backward on human rights at home and abroad. A world record amount of lawsuit against Trump. Trump has targeted refugees and immigrants, wail a record 65 million refugees each year roam worldwide. Calling them criminals and security threats; emboldened racist politics by equivocating on white nationalism; and consistently championed anti-Muslim ideas and policies. His administration has embraced policies that will roll back access to reproductive health care for women; championed health insurance changes that would leave many more Americans without access to affordable health care; and undermined police accountability for abuse. Trump has also expressed disdain for independent media and for federal courts that have blocked some of his actions. And he has repeatedly coddled autocratic leaders and showed little interest or leadership in pressing for the respect of human rights abroad.
Build an unrealistic wall boomed to fail or be paid .
Paris accord 193 countries to 1 Trump.
Now move to wars
Now bombing 7 countries.
Trump revamp the nuclear arms race since Regan. Revamp drug wars, trade wars and tariffs wars a good reason to put back US into deep depression like it did before.
The individuals most likely to suffer abuse in the United States—including members of racial and ethnic minorities, immigrants, children, the poor, and prisoners—are often least able to defend their rights in court or via the political process. Many vulnerable groups endured renewed attacks on their rights during the year. Other longstanding US laws and practices—particularly related to criminal and juvenile justice, immigration, and national security—continued to violate internationally recognized human rights.
A surge in immigration arrests of people living in the US. With harsh Criminal Sentencing.On any given day in the US, there are 2.3 million people in state and federal prisons and jails, the world’s largest reported incarcerated populations. Trump administration had given no indication of support.
Black men (per capita) are incarcerated at nearly six times the rate of white men. An unarmed black person is five times as likely to be killed by police as an unarmed white person. The Trump patterns and practices of excessive force and constitutional violations. “Back the Blue Act,” which would severely restrict civilians’ rights to sue police officers who unlawfully injure them.
He intent to re-escalate the “war on drugs” and de-emphasize bipartisan public health approaches to drug policy.
To you, he is a nice guy, helping the little guy. Not!!!
