    The word gets tossed around here a ton from both sides, neither side really knows what a "fascist is, so I present the definition according to Webster. Now, which of our two corrupt parties actually ARE fascists by definition?

    2. 2: a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial controlearly instances of army fascism and brutality — J. W. Aldridge

    play\fa-ˈshi-stik also -ˈsi-\ adjective, often capitalized

    The popularity of Trump answers that.

    True that he wasn't elected by the popular vote and that most of the US is against him but he's still popular among a minority. Trump is openly fascist as are some of his staff. The rest will soon be.

    Yep. See also "the Nazis", "the traitors", and "those who must be eliminated".

    Always immediately following :lalala:

    I'm in the "we're stuck in a silly hyperbolic loop in which the memories of millions who suffered are being insulted by simplistic partisan rhetoric" camp.

    Well I can see both in Number one to the part about Race. With the democrats, "exalting RACE above all else, I can see the republicans exalting NATION above all else, but only for looks. Those in government are pretty lazy to do much more then secure them selves a pay check, but i digress. I think.
