I read a very good book recently on American style Fascism which has been on the rise:
American Nightmare: Facing the Challenge of Fascism by Henry A.
Giroux makes some very succinct observations with regards to American style Fascism in this video interview if you not capable of reading books:
Finding Joy Amidst Fascism & Violence | Russell Brand, Henry Giroux & Brad Evans
There is a big difference between people right and people on the left. People on the right want to worship a STRONG leader. Contrary to the
projections of the people on the right the left has no leaders. Everyone on the left is equal. With no one in charge it takes forever to get
anything done. This is because what gets done needs to be argue about and compromised about until everyone doesn't like the resulting policy that is
As I said, there is no leadership on the left. It's just chaos. This is why I find it so amusing when people on the right make criticisms of AOC or
Nancy Pelosi as if the people on the left are like the people on the right. People on the left really do not care who is charge as long as policy
decisions match the left wing agenda or represents it in some way.
I find people on the right to more narrow minded. They don't just chose a leader. They idolize and worship a leader as if the leader were God on
Earth. I am amazed by every mistake Trump makes and people who support Trump never say anything bad about Trump. Trump could be throwing babies up
in the air and catching them on a bayonet and still these Trump supporters would be licking Trump's boot.
Take the foreign policy disaster of killing General Salami. It was an unbelievable act of recklessness by president Trump. It's just sheer luck and
absolutely amazing we are not dropping bombs on Iran right now. The Iranian hardliners did an amazing job saving face without cause Trump to reduce
Iran back to the stone age like what was done with Syria.
Yet in spite of this insanely reckless behavior Trump supporters not only do not criticize Trump but actually praise him for his reckless actions.
It's just amazing. I was a big Clinton supporter but when he lied under oath about having sex with Monica I thought the Republicans were justified in
impeaching Bill. I would hope we can agree people on both sides of the aisle need to hold politicians accountable for their dumb or illegal actions.
But not the Trump supporters. There's nothing but boot licking. Hey, maybe I'm completely wrong and Trump is some kind foreign policy genius. The
whole killing of General Salami was some kind of 3D chess move where the Iraqi parliament is now providing Trump political cover to end the endless
war in the Middle East and withdraw all the US troops out of Iraq:
Al Jazeera: Iraqi parliament calls
for expulsion of foreign troops
"Iraq's parliament has passed a resolution calling on the government to expel foreign troops from the country as Iran-US tensions escalate following
the killing of a top Iranian military commander and Iraqi armed group leader in a US strike in Baghdad."
The way I see if the Iraqis don't want us in their country then it's time for us to leave!
I will say here publicly right now if Trump is somehow successful in ending the endless war and withdrawing US troops from Iraqi that I will public
announce my support for Trump and vote for him in 2020. Besides ending the endless war I would do the same if he made Medicare for all available to
people under 65. Those are the two issues that would get my vote.
I know many of you on ATS hate me and my opinions. All I ask is please keep it civil by keeping me out of it and just criticize my opinion or what I
am saying. I find ad hominem attacks to be incredibly boring and predictable. If you respect me I will respect you but you can roast anything I am
