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

Submitted by Michael Carax (Netherlands), Feb 28, 2017 at 08:46

I believe the person and the politics are intertwined – cannot be separated. That's just me. Any gesture or comment a politician makes can be twisted or massaged so it makes the politician look bad. I don't believe Trump is an "evil" man, or a neo-Fascist. And I don't think the official definition describes Trump accurately... there is a lot more to it... considering the parapolitics that influences the process. I'm not sure I know what most people even mean by "evil" anyway. Does he practice or advocate it? I don't think so. I just don't see the evidence unless you take a hand gesture and a lot of the stupid comments he has made seriously. He certainly is no better or worse than the "evil" Hillary.

I'm glad he won because he is a thorn in the side of the establishment (even though he has already caved in on certain issues). What I really see in America now is one tyranny being replaced with another. The system remains rigged. The police-surveillance state remains. etc. And you cannot separate a Muslim from Islam when it comes down to the nitty gritty. That has been my experience in Europe so far.
