Link 8/9/2019 5 White Supremacism
The reemergence of white supremacist terrorists is a byproduct of decades of Republican rhetoric and divisive campaigning, similar to Reagan Era panics that framed society as beset by a moral, supernatural war.

Link 8/1/2019 5 RNC goes Boom
The Republican Christianity Ronald Reagan inspired that dominates politics and society came from occult theories by a guy named Manly P. Hall about America that involved Atlantis, ancient conspiracies, and hokey short stories written by one of Edgar Allan Poe's best friends.

Link 7/24/2019 6 RNC goes Boom
These Republicans are saying national security doesn't matter, government integrity doesn't matter, loyalty doesn't matter - they're saying that victory is the only thing that matters and that, I'm sorry to say, is the textbook definition of fascism.

So, we need to talk about Russian interference, US intelligence, the Iranian Coup of 1953, the myth of American exceptionalism, and why we address any of our problems and actually get better. 1

Evangelicals supporting Trump is a result of sections of American Christianity being radicalized into white identity groups for decades they're living in the End Times by leaders and politicians who want to mobilize their support. Amen to that! (irony intended) -dbciii

Sometimes I get really caught up in wondering whether all the humor originating from Trump's mistakes and ridiculousness actually keeps us from grasping how truly terrifying our current situation is.

how Nazis used a strain of angry, white-identity Christianity and transferred reverence of Jesus to Adolf Hitler

Watching coverage of the D-Day ceremony and itís so obvious that all the pageantry, the flyovers, the colors, the flags, the pomp and circumstance, disguise reality.

Hereís what you learn studying fascism: itís never actually popular.

I'm studying fascism for a project right now and it's making me completely reconsider how I look at it and our political moment. Excellent insight! I submit that the Founders' concerns for the rise of tyranny were focused on exactly what @JYSexton describes here. -dbciii

it's necessary to take a wider look at why people are so frustrated by journalists and why it's absolutely necessary to want them to do better

Trump has put us in alignment with Putin and Kim Jong Un, dictators who murder and oppress their peoples. He was able to do it because no one thought it could ever happen, but this is where we are and god help us if we don't open our eyes.

Trump's behavior with Pelosi completely reflects the cycle of abuse that myself and other survivors have endured.

our outdated concepts of masculinity are helping these people radicalize like ISIS.

All right. Letís talk about the Warren story. The headline is written the way it is because it attracts the most attention possible

So much of this current climate is wrapped up in male insecurity and Fox and Trump and Republicans are playing those insecurities for profit and power. Makes me want to read @jysexton's bookÖ -dbciii

These are the people who told everyone who was concerned about rising fascism and the decline of duty and ethics that they were worried about slippery slopes and being hysterical. They believed Trump might be abnormal, but not particularly dangerous.

What's getting lost in the coverage of a Trump supporter calling for the shooting of immigrants last night is that Trump crowds have been doing this for years and that they're always just saying the thing Trump leads them to.

What we see now is simply an evolution of the blatant racism that riddled the country in the past

So much of what's wrong is grounded in how greed and lust for personal power overrides duty and a sense of right and wrong. Excellent assessment. The concept of "of, by, and for" the people is replaced by "Me,me, me" -dbciii

Trump & Republicans have ok'd campaign accepting/relying on foreign interference. Reason enough to impeach.

Even if Republicans don't believe his campaign worked with Russia to get Donald Trump elected (they did), aren't they the least bit concerned that Russia wanted Trump to be president so badly?

Impeachment is a constitutional requirement and we have no idea what would happen

Long and short: there was collusion, there was obstruction, Donald Trump needs to be removed from office. Immediately.
