I believe this will be a defining period for America. We've been educated on authoritarianism... we fought and killed the Nazi's... we've grown as a tolerant society, recognizing our faults, and bettering ourselves in expanding equality, and practicing empathy.... And now here we are.... An authoritarian president using Nazi tactics.... Now we see what the heart of America is really made of.

One party has allowed its most virulent members to gain power and infect America's brain and heart. This is a dis-ease incubating for awhile now, and we are at the next stage in the disease. The darkness that started in American brains now darkens their heart.

The [German] conservative elite got much more than they had bargained for with their willingness to turn political power over to the Nazis. ...But the conservatives had made Hitler and the Nazis salonfähig, as one says in German. Colloquially in English, that means “acceptable in polite society.” ...That is where we are today with Donald Trump. Trump is not a fascist or a neo-Nazi, as some have claimed.. [Those in his party] are the people who are making Trump salonfähig.

The real issue is not whether Trump is a modern-day Hitler or Mussolini. The problem lies deeper: with the social and political mores that have made possible his crude nativism and contempt for social progress. ...In America today, the major threats do not come from abroad. They lie within, from those who claim to believe in democracy yet undermine its substance by deploying great wealth in the political process and devaluing the diversity of American society. And the danger comes especially from those who perhaps should know better, but make anti-democratic, radical conservatives salonfähig. That is the real lesson to be taken from Weimar Germany.

Weimar America? Forget Trump. It's the people who paved the way for him who seem uncomfortably familiar to an expert on pre-Nazi Germany.

Media (not just Fox) for years now has promoted irrational thought, promoting false equivalency, black/white (bifurcated) thinking, and sensationalism over substance. Profits uber alles. "It may not be good for America, but it's damn good for CBS." Media was stunned, but they got exactly what they helped promote, and now they see that they need to fight back.... or be silenced. Truth and rationality needs to win.

I think it shows us exactly what this is really about for Stevie:

“The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for a while,” Mr. Bannon said during a telephone call.

Should be?

Well, your alt right wet dreams are not the same as our reality - are they now pumpkin?

Speaking of triggered...

Bring it you sloppy bucket of ego fail and Stalin swill

Even the press is voicing the viewpoints of the opposition. Then it's even more worrysome that the government wants to keep them quiet. Silencingthe opposition is one of the tools of a totalitarian regime
