      Fascism Has Come To America.

      Fascism, which millions of Americans fought and hundreds of thousands died fighting against in World War II is alive and well in the USA today.

      It isn't the fascism of Italy's Mussolini or Germany's Hitler (at least not yet), but it accomplishes the same ends of delivering unbridled power and obscene wealth to the few, who are loyal to and willingly enable the greed and avarice of their avatar leader, whether the enablers are in the Congress, the business world or the media.

      Fascism has creeped into America since the end of WWII, slowly and stealthily eroding democracy by complicating or suppressing the voting process, chipping away at the economic gains of the middle class and demonizing the unions that made them possible, and as always; using racism and bigotry to divide and conquer the electorate by scapegoating black or brown people to convince the ignorant whites that "blacks are the enemy," and only a strong "law and order" authoritarian leader can control their "criminality."

      It is no accident that black people who were brutally exploited as slaves for over 200 years in America, became the convict labor of the chain gangs after the Civil War in the South, followed by "Jim Crow laws" that prevailed after the "Separate but Equal" decision of the Supreme Court in "Plessy vs Ferguson," and even today, one in three black males is imprisoned, and only one in seventeen whites are jailed for the same offenses.

      For those who thought that we have a Constitution which provides a "separation of powers," and "checks and balances" on the executive branch, think again. The Republican controlled Congress is Donald Trump's rubber stamp, and has not, and will not hold him to account for ethical or legal violations.

      Consider his ties to Putin, which have been further disclosed by the Michael Flynn scandal. We know there are further contacts that were made by Trump surrogates to Putin's operatives prior to the election, but the GOP Congress, which rushed to judgement on Hillary Clinton's non-role in the Benghazi incident, refuses to appoint a special committee to investigate the Trump/Putin connections!


      Consider Donald Trump's refusal to release his tax returns or to divest himself of his businesses, and once again the Republican Congress cowardly looks the other way, and one of it's so called leaders, Paul Ryan, as much as says Trump's businesses are no concern of his!

      And then there has been the incipient growth of the right wing media, led by Hate-Talk radio and demagogues like Rush Limbaugh for years, and then reinforced, if not surpassed, by the fascist duo of Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes in the creation of Fox "News."

      In addition, we now have the former head of the racist trash called, "Breitbart" as Trump's chief "advisor,"and there are an endless amount of Trump trolls, who viciously attack his critics on social media, be it Facebook or Twitter.

      And Corporate America has fallen in line with fascism as they see greater profits by cooperating with Trump, who hypocritically has appointed a Goldman-Sachs head, Steve Mnuchin, whose credentials for greed and depravity were well established in the economic collapse of 2008, as his new Secretary of the Treasury. Remember when Trump denounced Hillary for taking a fee from Goldman-Sachs for a speech, and yet now Trump is surrounded by G-S executives for "economic advice."


      American democracy is in jeopardy as is the economic well being of all Americans and their civil and political liberties.

      Marches and organizing to resist the Trump menace is all well and good, but if we can't remove the Republican enablers of this deranged would-be dictator, from Congress and the state government positions, we will not be able to stop the continued growth of fascism in America.

      So for now, resist, march, voice your opinions on media of all sorts and send letters and calls to Congress to let them know how you feel, but in the end it's the vote that counts.

      If you don't show up on election day in 2018, the tipping point for fascism in America could be reached, and thereafter Trump and the Republican Party will find ways to further disable the democratic process to insure their irreversible control of our government!

          This post is a typical diversionary tactic. Diverting from the issue. Trump won, get over it.

          In our "democracy" it is commonplace for about 1/2 of the people to be unhappy with the winner of the election for President. HOWEVER, we must accept that there is always a winner, and a looser. In the best interest of our nation, and in the best interest of ALL OF US we must come together and respect the outcome of the election, and respect OUR President. To make war against our President with all kinds of phony allegations, fooling the multitudes who are uninformed sheep, is making war against America. THAT IS WHAT IS GOING ON!!!

          Donald Trump is the President of these United States of America. He won, GET OVER IT!!!!!

              Great post, organizer! "Fascism" may have come to the USA, yet it shall not take root, because intrinsically that's not who we are as a people.

              I see people walking and talking in a united front and I'm proud of the attributes born of adversity!

              Our thoughts will take us anywhere we choose to go, or keep us from arriving. We need to mature and level up spiritually, because believe it or not this is not a physical, mental or emotional battle; it's a fight for our rights and the rights of our country that can only thrive and arrive from an inner spiritual awareness.

              As Michelle Obama said "When they go low; we go high!" Together we are a strong, powerful, determined and forward looking people and country. It s not a question of our country failing us; the question is will we fail our country! The solution is "Impeachment." This should be our mantra!

              Namaste

                  Yes Fascism is alive and well in America... It is alive in the recent movement that wants to silence our duly elected President by burning and looting rather than at the ballot box. Or shutting down free speech at the Universities.

                  Rather than work to present ideas and candidates, they work to disrupt what our elected authorities are trying to accomplish and for what they were elected to change. These are the fascists!

                      "and even today, one in three black males is imprisoned, and only one in seventeen whites are jailed for the same offenses."

                      BTW: your statistics on black-white incarceration are garbage. Blacks are in prison for the same reasons as whites. THEY'RE DOING THE TIME BECAUSE THEY DID THE CRIME!


                      Congress is Donald Trump's rubber stamp, and has not, and will not hold him to account for ethical or legal violations.

                      ...and those violations are...


                      Consider his ties to Putin, which have been further disclosed by the Michael Flynn scandal.

                      What ties? The Flynn 'scandal' is that he lied to the VP. PERIOD!

                      "We know there are further contacts that were made by Trump surrogates to Putin's operatives prior to the election, but the GOP Congress, which rushed to judgement on Hillary Clinton's non-role in the Benghazi incident...

                      It's not unlawful for anyone to talk to "the Russians".


                      "Consider Donald Trump's refusal to release his tax returns or to divest himself of his businesses,..."

                      Trump is not involved in the management of ANY business.

                      Consider that BHO has never released his school transcripts, which would have proved that he was not Constitutionally, eligible to be POTUS.


                      "And then there has been the incipient growth of the right wing media, led by Hate-Talk radio and demagogues like Rush Limbaugh..."

                      Oh how you hate the fact that there is any right wing news. It was so much better when only left wing views were aired.

                      BTW: your statistics on black-white incarceration are garbage. Blacks are in prison for the same reasons as whites. THEY'RE DOING THE TIME BECAUSE THEY DID THE CRIME!

                          Let me help you there on one thing that sticks in your craw ( as you brought it up twice )

                          NO , more blacks are in prison as they can't afford lawyers to get them a dropped , or lowered sentence...

                          READ what was said about incarceration " one in seventeen whites are jailed for the same offense"....

                          If you understood English you'd know that your response doesn't match the point....

                          Sorry
