    it means your comment is about as empty as your head.

    I noted you didn't actually respond to my reply to your idiotic post.

    I have not seen any posts that addressed the OP in an educated fashion. Lots of "What about" posts and even some birther stuff, but nothing that challenges attacking the free press not being a tenet of fascism. Nothing about the government attacking the free press as being appropriate that contains serious content. All I see is angry trumpers lamely trying to defend our fake news promoting Liar in Chief who is desperate to neutralize the free press from reporting his moronic behavior and the constant lies he spews.
    So, is neutralizing the free press a tenet of fascism or not?

    Did Trump say Congress should investigate the press? On the other hand, Congress is already investigating Facebook and youTube.

    Stalinists use the press for propaganda organs, and that's exactly the arrangement we currently have between the DNC and the fake media.

    Responding to the press is not neutralizing it. Again show me when the goons start ripping up the press rooms, or the cyber-goons start destroying the press websites then you can bitch about fascism.

    Saying "the press sucks and is biased" is not neutralizing it.

    Any criticism of liberals is a crime against humanity.

    so you are saying:

    obama did not use the IRS against conservatives (or at least his admin)
    fast n furious is a lie
    he never said "you didn't build that" which he meant to say it's a "cooperative effort" but came out "your success is dependant on someone else"
    never ordered soldiers to stand down or watched beghazi unfold

    before i go on - i want to make sure of what you're saying or at least trying to.

    They have been too used to being the only game in town, and to having non-progressives back down when confronted.

    opinions are not lies, they are opinions. I understand that the corrupt media is desperate to find a way to bring Trump down, but with every try they only make themselves look like idiots.

    Now, if you want to talk about lying to the public.

    "if you like your plan you can keep it"
    "the average family will save $2500 per year"
    "I did not have sex with that woman, Miss Lewinsky"
    "I never sent classified material over my personal e-mail"
    "mine will be the most transparent administration in history"

    need I continue?
