You've GOT To Be Kidding!

Reader comment on item: There's a Name for Trump's Brand of Politics: Neo-fascism

Submitted by yonason (United States), Apr 7, 2016 at 16:00

"Liberals agree. Carl Bernstein of Watergate fame called Trump "a new kind of fascist in our culture" and someone with an "authoritarian demagogic point of view." Hillary Clinton portrays Trump pursuing 'a demagogic path" that relies on xenophobia, paranoia, prejudice, and nationalism "to really stir people up'."

You think Clinton's moral assessments of others are worth quoting??!! They, and Obama have nothing but contempt for America or it's Constitution.

You judge Trump by hearsay and his facial expressions? That's all you have? That is the crudest form of ad hominem attack.

"Liberals" (Leftists) have done plenty to make us worry, but you don't attack their behavior to the same degree. You want us to believe that Trump is bad because of his style of presentation, and because of what Left Wing lunatics say about him?

There are things about Trump that I don't like, but if he's as bad as you say, then there isn't a single candidate worth electing, and we are all in deep trouble. All Dems are worse, as are most top Republicans.

Sorry Dr. Pipes, but if this is all the "evidence" you have against him ... I am very VERY disappointed.

How about you re-read the article and note the more substantial evidence, especially the quotes at the beginning?
