‘Like a Mussolini Rally’: Scarborough in Hysterics Over Trump’s Pennsylvania Speech

A fundamental rule of modern American politics is that every Trump rally produces an equal, opposite media panic.

The Red Guards – Los Angeles have been among those groups promoting violent responses to political issues and in a blog post to commemorate the Socialist International Women’s Day, called for the creation of a “Women’s Guerrilla Defense Unit” to combat the “patriarchal dictatorship of the bourgeoisie” that currently exists in the group’s mind.
