Aptly and eloquently summed up.Trump and Trumpism similarly embody the 14 common factors of fascism identified by the great writer Umberto Eco in his 1995 essay, Ur Fascism
- A cult of traditionalism.
- A rejection of modernism (cultural, rather than technological).
- A cult of action for its own sake and a distrust of intellectualism.
- A framing of disagreement or opposition as treasonous.
- A fear of difference. … Fascism is racist by definition.
- An appeal to a frustrated middle class—either due to economic or political pressures from both above and below.
- An obsession with the plots and machinations of the movement's identified enemies.
- A requirement that said enemies be simultaneously seen as omnipotent and weak, conniving and cowardly.
- A rejection of pacifism. Life is permanent warfare.
- Contempt for weakness.
- A cult of heroism.
- A selective populism, relying on chauvinist definitions of "the people" that it claims to speak for.
- A heavy usage of Newspeak—impoverished vocabulary, elementary syntax and a resistance to complex and critical reasoning.
It's the court cases. Former President Trump had his [checks] 64 days in court, everyone else is entitled to their day, singular. So he had 64 shots.
Well, was a cringe worthy trawl but listened to the whole thing months ago and there's no denying that Trump was feebly trying to coerce Raffensperger into "finding" him over 11,000 votes. That's fraud, plain and simple, much like the MAGA crowd.You think an hour-plus of Trump in his own words is fantasy island? That’s progress!

And how many members of the select committee will be under Oath?
Then I don't believe a word they say. Just look at the dems statements about Ray Epps. We heard all kinds of responses. But while under Oath, we only heard one reply over and over again: "I can't respond to that." "I can't respond to that." "I can't respond to that."Are they testifying? No?
Misinterpreting someone is a mistake and democrats should be ashamed of themselves. There were potentially hundreds of thousands of fraudulent votes in Georgia in 2020 and some bozo thinks there could not possibly be at least 12,000 of them proven invalid?
Live testimony from Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, target ofTrump’s infamous request to “find” him enough votes:
"All I want to do is this: I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have... Fellas, I need 11,000 votes, give me a break."
