Let’s be blunt about it: President Donald Trump is inspiring fascism in America. And it is terribly important that we name it.
What he says, and what he does, is making this evident to most people, especially fascists themselves. This is not just true since the violence in the recent demonstrations in Charlottesville, Va. It has been increasingly true since the days of Trump’s candidacy, as he has encouraged the forces in America that promote racism, ethnic hatred, violence and white supremacy.
