Addendum: A Fascist pretending not to be a fascist but acting like one – Part Deux

…Continued from Reflections and Stuff

...(the ones liking his doctrine and the ones without the courage, being afraid of this man, to try and go against him and with it, lose their standing and receive nothing but public scorn)

He is the smartest and the “bestest”, who went to the “bestest” schools, had the “bestest” teachers, uses the bestest words, and simply has the “bestest” brain. An incredible brain. A brain like few have seen. An intelligence few possess. Never seen before. A stable genius. He alone will make us great again. We should feel lucky to know him.

Fascism, as defined in Merriam-Webster is “a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.”

A central autocratic government with an authoritarian leader …mmm… Remember, severe economic regimentation does not need to be as in “state owned, or state controlled”. The simple fact that deregulation has and is still taking place walks us straight to this little man’s economic empire. It is precisely this deregulation that lets the empire do what the empire does best. Without much control. Without much opposition.

As for social regimentation, the mere fact to accuse most networks, newspapers, and social media channels as “fake News” bringers, the infiltration of the different classes, races, genders …. tells us what we need to know. What little man believes and wants becomes the norm. This takes us to the “forcible suppression of opposition” where one man and his followers tirelessly put out statements, tweets, and such to discredit anything and everything, and everyone, not playing by their book.

When criticism becomes muffled, when important people are forced to leave, when Justice is threatened, and when the mere mortals are silenced and shoved aside, I say, again, Houston, we have a problem.

And when we start feeling that we seem to live in an alternate universe where “alternate explanations and statements” are the norm, and little man does manage to purge all that be dissenters, let it be said … no, it needs to be said ….

Houston, We are in trouble.

What do you think of this?
