Noises coming from Donald's Rump

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

Submitted by David Farer (Israel), Apr 24, 2016 at 09:22

Yes, Holy Brother, I agree that he talks like that. I am annoyed that he causes me to say some unflattering things, that he coarsens the general level of discourse, and that this IS indeed the way Duce and others spoke. The major distinction between Rump and Duce is, however, that European Fascists had and often have organizations of Black Shirts, Brown Shirts, and shirts of other colors. Rump has nothing like that; a bunch of loudmouth jerks just show up and bother people. Rump seems to have little or no organization behind him. Should he enter the White House, an event I do not anticipate, it would just disintegrate into chaos. Hitler and Mussolini had organizations in place with which to run operations.
