    Why not include actual documentation to prove your point regarding both parties! More specifically the Democratic Party.

    One of Trump's picks for SCOTUS is Amy Coney Barrett. Right out of Atwood's "The Handmaid's Tale."

    I don't recall Bill Barr being part of this discussion, but he is acting as Trump's personal lawyer as well as a right wing culture warrior and member of Opus Dei. His recent speeches are chilling! https://www.rawstory.com/2020/09/bill-barr-shows-his-true-colors-and-theyre-terrifying/

    I don't agree. Anyone within the borders of the U.S.A. is afforded the same legal rights as U.S. citizens. https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/1201

    The problem with the cages is that Obama's and Trump's policies on immigration are entirely different. The cages are only meant as a 72 hour hold and no longer. Trump has used the cages to separate children and infants from their parents and most of those children have disappeared with no record of where they are. Kidnapping is a federal offense!

    According to his ex wife he a kept copy of Mein Kampf on his night stand. This must be it. https://www.amazon.com/Kampf-Donald-Trump-Adolf-Hitler-ebook/dp/B01M28ONYR

    My reason for characterizing Trump as an authoritarian fascist is based on factual historical documentation. I recommended a few scholars in a previous post which includes Hannah Arendt who writes about banalizing evil in her important work “The Origins of Totalitarianism.” Also “Mein Kampf is important reading as to how “the big lie” is constructed. I have never once likened Trump to Hitler, but it is obvious that Trump has read Hitler, Goebbels and other writings that have informed his ideology. Should we not be outraged seeing children and adults locked in cages like animals? Infants and children taken from their parents and have disappeared without a trace! All because of Trump’s anti immigration policy!

    The Democratic Party leadership has been far too soft over the years which many observers have characterized it as battered wives syndrome. Dems need to grow a pair and stop compromising with bullies! To your point, Dems need to call it authoritarian fascism in no uncertain terms. Some will balk, but there are some that will wake up. I suggest reading Dr. Timothy Snyder, Hannah Arendt, Kershaw, Milton Mayer and perhaps Mein Kampf. Trump is using the fascist playbook to his advantage.

    I don't appreciate nor is it welcome for anyone to dictate how I should think or feel! Moreover, you missed my point entirely!

    Obviously you haven’t a clue as to what Barr is up to. Acting attorney for Trump which is unethical. I always throw in an extra comment that is related.

    Bill Bar will prosecute Trump's adversaries as requested by Trump. https://www.rawstory.com/2020/09/justice-department-opens-criminal-case-against-john-bolton-over-unflattering-tell-all-book/

    Was it any different during the Inquisition, Crusades and Holy Wars? I think not! It is always about the higher cause and sacrifice to it.
  13. An opinion or observation of madness

    Trump and his cronies have no rules. Bill Barr is allowing that to happen. https://www.rawstory.com/2020/09/the-media-and-robert-mueller-keep-making-the-same-mistakes-with-trump-columnist/

    Pat Robertson (700 Club) put the theocratic agenda front and center when he ran for president back in the late 80's. Frank Shaeffer's son Frank has become an outspoken critic of the theocratic right wing. He has become an atheist.
