In 1995, the brilliant novelist, and semiotician Umberto Eco wrote "There is in our future a TV or Internet populism, in which the emotional response of a selected group of citizens can be presented and accepted as the Voice of the People." Discussing fascism, specifically Ur-Fascism, Eco wrote "Mussolini did not have any philosophy: he had only rhetoric." Followers of Trump have claimed to be representing the people, and no one has accused the President-elect of having any of that philosophy stuff. But he scores well on the rhetoric count. Why I wouldn't be surprised to find a Trump supporter paraphrasing Goering “When I hear talk of philosophy coming from the establishment or media, I reach for my gun” Contrary to fringe nonsense, neither Presidents Bush or Obama were dictators nor tyrants, and I do not expect the President-elect to become one. I do however, believe the President-elect to be a pushing a populist, fascisti message that appeals to those that considers themselves to be representative of the so-called middle class. This segment of the American electorate feels left out and invisible, left behind and abandoned; and it is angry and frustrated, and during the 2016 campaign, it was often "vicious and violent." In a Letter to the Editor found online, a reader wrote of President-elect Trump "He has accomplished more before he is sworn in than any president-elect in recent memory." Maybe this reader watches FOX New's Bill O'Reilly, who has declared the the War on Christmas to be over? And not to worry, Mr. O'Reilly has also informed the people, that the President-elect is on the case of the War on Christmas: the war "That Had To Be Lost To Be Won. I do not expect the President-elect to become a dictator or a tyrant because, I believe our system of government is rigged against dictators and tyrants, and while the President-elect may Tweet Unfair! Unfair ... as he is wont to do, we have that dusty old document, written and ratified by a bunch of old, dead, white men to thank for this fact. Oh, the irony! Irony abounds, and I miss Umberto Eco. In this new un-pc world Donald J.Trump is ushering in, Eco would have written precious gems of "words that count."
