Yes, Neo-Fascist Donald, But Obama Was That

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

Submitted by Sofa Sogood (United States), Apr 8, 2016 at 01:32

I agree with you about Trump, although his approach is only a more obvious example of what Obama has actually done -- which Obama has attempted pretend to deny and dismiss as "right-wing" propaganda.

On each point that is threatened by Trump, there is at least one example of what Obama has already done. There are many examples -- Sen. Menendez persecution for objecting to the Iran deal for just one -- the IRS -- but too many to list. Obama has set the example of the American Neo-Fascist President -- he just does a lot of it "from behind" -- as much as he can get away with. Donald is "out there" and not hiding any of it, because Obama opened the door for the Donalds and Bernies and Hillarys to follow.

But we all knew it would wind up here way back in 2008 when he was elected. It was clear and plain for all who wanted to -- to see coming.
