This article claims that Donald Trump is a fascist!

http://www.salon.com/2017/01/21/congratulations-america-you-did-it-an-actual-fascist-is-now-your-official-president/

The following quote is from the news article:

Begin quote

Donald Trump, a serial liar, narcissist, failed businessman, political con artist, adulterer, professed grabber of women’s genitals without their permission, man who does not read, ignoramus, admirer and fan of despots and dictators, encourager of vigilante violence against innocent people, actor in a porn video, person who does not pay his employees, member of the Vladimir Putin fan club, racist landlord, preferred candidate of neo-Nazis and other fringe racists, professional wrestling villain, and candidate who incites violence against his political opponents, is now the 45th president of the United States of America.

Donald Trump is also a fascist authoritarian in the American mold and leader of the world’s most powerful and influential “democracy.”

Throughout the 2016 presidential campaign, the American news media desperately avoided using such language to describe Donald Trump. They did this because of material self-interest and advertising revenues, as well as an inability to accept how Trump had gamed obsolete journalistic norms of “fairness,” “balance” and “objectivity.”

In doing so, the American news media facilitated Trump’s rise to power. They labeled Trump as a “populist” who was “unconventional.” The American news media kept suggesting that Trump would “pivot” for the general election in order to win more “mainstream” and “centrist” voters. There were some bold voices who said that Trump had “authoritarian tendencies.” But very few commentators had the courage to plainly state that Donald Trump was a fascist — even though the evidence was growing then and is now insurmountable.

End quote

So what is wrong with being a “fascist”? The Nazis were “facists”.  A person can’t get any worse than being a fascist!

    Salon is not a news-reporting web site — it’s a web site that publishes political commentary.

  2. Funny I just read that today….The Donald is going to be charged with every slanderous and hating remarks in the book.
    I find it interesting how the public, because of their inabilities to bring change with their prior choices have to put the blame on someone.
    Obama was there for 8 years touting “change”…..didn’t happen so now the blame is put on Trump and he’s only been there two weeks. So far Trump is cleaning house and tightening things up a bit and to me that is a good thing.
    Anyone who can be called a Holocaust Denier can’t be all bad.
