Donald Trump is rampaging since the GOP Senators gave him immunity from impeachment and other acts of censure.

"The Republican Party is betraying democracy, and these are historical times. Someone has got to push back."

The acquittal from impeachment may have created a trap for Donald Trump which will cause him to indulge in even more unsavory acts which even the most obsequious GOP lawmakers cannot tolerate if indeed there are any such GOP lawmkers with balls and backbone.

Time is running out and there is a possibility that Donald Trump will have shot so many holes in his feet by November that only the most doltish of his howling mob could vote for him.

  • Americans are running out of time to stop President Donald Trump's authoritarian slide, experts warned.
  • "There need to be mass protests," a Yale philosophy professor and expert on fascism told Insider. "The Republican Party is betraying democracy, and these are historical times. Someone has got to push back."
  • Since he was acquitted in the GOP-controlled Senate earlier this month, the president has overseen a White House purge of impeachment witnesses, and the attorney general has intervened in the trial of a Trump associate.
  • Republicans have mostly sat back, with at least one senator conceding that Trump's behavior did not seem to have changed because of impeachment.
  • "There is absolutely no reason for him to stop pushing. It goes against both his personality and his experience," Cas Mudde, a political scientist at the University of Georgia, told Insider.

If Americans are concerned that President Donald Trump and Republicans are moving the US toward becoming a one-party, authoritarian state, they are running out of time to stop them, experts warned.

Trump has exhibited autocratic impulses since his 2016 campaign and from the moment he entered the White House.

The president has attacked virtually every democratic institution in the US when he's felt its actions were unfavorable to his agenda or public appearance. Meanwhile, he pushed traditional US allies away while openly embracing many of the world's most repressive leaders.

These trends have raised concern among top experts on authoritarianism, fascism, and democracy, but they've often said that the robust political system in the US, with its checks and balances and constitutional norms, has prevented Trump from becoming a full-blown authoritarian and doing whatever he wants.

That's what happens when a failed apprentice becomes POTUS in an operatic political comedy with obese sycophant, horned helmets and spears.

The Trump administration is a bunch of obese, corrupt, obsequious, drama queens led by a barking clown.

Oh shut your fucking drama queen face.

If things were 1/10th as bad as you bedwetting pussies say they are, you'd already be in the gulag.

The O. P. should have been around to be a Jacobin in the French Revolution...they were all as bat shit crazy as AOC...and they all wound up cutting each others heads off trying to decide which one was the most dedicated Socialist.

History repeats itself, because human nature doesn't change....there are a pack of fools in each new generation and they call themselves Socialists. Some like "The Bern", and Fidel Castro, never change----most learn and grow up.

“Mass Protests” for liberals is a dog whistle for violence.

Oh this is rich... WITH FUCKING IRONY...

IF I'M CONCERNED??????

Sure as fuck I'm concerned.. But not because of DJTrump.. Almost every recent "democrat socialist" revolution has ended in immense suffering and tragedy... WHY????????

Because it's about the POWER to enact their agenda.. It starts OUT Democrat, but as the economy crashes and the money becomes worthless, and the DISSIDENTS are rounded up and silenced, these "democratic socialists" need MORE POWER... The power to fix their OWN MESS... Because they have NO CLUE how to make good on all the free stuff and promises. And INSTEAD, take one healthy economy after another into RUINS... Zimbabwe, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Cuba and on and on....

THAT is THE authoritarian threat. You CAN NOT DO what most of the Dem party candidate clowns want to do without INCREASING the scope and POWER of the govt... THAT --- is the path to Authoritarianism...

NOT -- cutting regulations, lowering taxes, making better trade deals...

YOU'RE RIGHT --- you mental midget.. There's a certain "authoritarian threat" but all YOU found here was :"projection of guilt" by a couple fucking PHILOSOPHY majors that have the DERANGEMENT SYNDROME bad... And as Democrats are legendary of doing --- they blame their COMPETITION of doing exactly what THEY are doing...
