We keep being told that bringing out the term “Fascist” is inappropriate and inaccurate when talking about the Trump administration.
I am sorry but it would be impossible to find a person who sends up more red flags than Steven Miller? Don’t let the suit and tie fool you… this is a contemporary version of a Brown Shirt.
When you hear that Trump’s executive power shouldn’t be subject to judicial review… when we are being told that Trump’s decisions are not open to question… then you are looking at a Fascist, a totalitarian, or a supporter of autocracy, a proponent of despotism, however you wish to describe it. The fact that Trump publicly thanked this man for how he represented the President on all the talk shows should tell you everything you need to know.
This guy is one step from telling us that we should make Trump Emperor for Life. He is easily the scariest man to have appeared in the administration since Steve Bannon. Another Joseph Goebbels point man for the Great Leader.
We are a Constitutional Democratic Republic. A nation of laws. When you have a spokesperson trying to maintain that a President’s actions cannot be subject to judicial oversight, you are hearing the verbal justification for a totalitarian takeover of the government. This is the beginning of a Cult of the Personality, the justification for dictatorship. No one must question the absolute power of the leader.
If there are any genuine Conservatives left in our government, they should be quaking in fear. They should be asking at what point do they step up and start resisting this threat to the democracy they say they care about so much?
These are not just people who have a different political agenda from us. It isn’t just their ideas and policies. These people are a type that is seen throughout history. The fanatical, true believer. This is precisely the kind of person who would send a family off to the camps and not think twice about it.
We cannot allow these people to prevail. Resist.
