Trump is NOT a fascist by any stretch of imagination

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

Submitted by Satya (United States), Apr 8, 2016 at 10:52

... What this article ... missed mentioning ... it does not mention that in the past several times (before he was Presidential candidate) disavowed Ku Klux Klan. While his statements on protesters is mentioned several times, little was mentioned how protesters were deliberately disruptive and even violent.

This is not to say Trump has no blame for playing to gallery on issues such as Ku Klux Klan and even answering in kind to protesters but this kind of one sided portrayal is undesirable and unhealthy to our democracy. Trump daughter Ivanka married a jew and not just converted to Jewish religion but closely follow Judaism in practice.

You should look at the person from the past and that is where you will know where his convictions lie. Trump is anywhere close to being fascist by any stretch of imagination. In fact, our establishment politicians who work with weapons industry that creates rife around the world to sell weapons and bring miseries to millions, our pharmaceutical industry which is leaving millions without affordable medicines, our medical industry which selfishly grab the hard earnings of the people through expensive medical care, there are silent fascists that are hollowing our humanity.
