Democracy, Fascism, and Donald Trump

The dark night of fascism is about to descend on America. Or at least so a full-page from “refusefascism.org” in today’s New York Times proclaims.

The ad is signed by the likes of Bill Ayers, who co-founded the Weather Underground–a group of 1960’s radicals who engaged in such neo-fascist behavior as blowing things up and robbing Brinks trucks (murdering three people in the process); Alice Walker, the Pulitzer-Prize-winning author; Niles Eldridge, a very distinguished biologist and paleontologist; and a bunch of people I’ve never heard of including a “performance artist” with the interesting name of Dread Scott.

    So a bunch of lefties, one of whom is a convicted terrorist who tried to overthrow democracy are concerned that their preferred form facism was overthrown using a democratic process?

    I have to hand it to the neo-fascists (democrats). They burn their midnight oil to come up with slogans for opposition without end. Their key is that it must project onto others their true internal beliefs hoping their target is glue while they always pretend to be rubber. Specious logic amongst the under educated public means these slogans might stick to enough weak minds to trigger trouble.
