Is America becoming a fascist country?

Trump says immigrants are poisoning the blood of America.  That is a line and a major theme right out of Adolf Hitler’s playbook.

Are the American people leaning toward authoritarian rule?

After the elections in November 1932, Adolf Hitler had a solid base but less support than Donald Trump has today.

In the meantime, one of the leading candidates for Speaker of the House is Jim Jordan (Rep.-Ohio), a nihilist Trump supporter who is currently defying a Congressional subpoena.

Trump has urged the House to elect Jordan. Representative Liz Cheney (Rep.-Wyoming), who served on the January 6 Committee, says Jordan knew more about Trump’s plans for the insurrection on January 6 than anyone else in the House.

The hour is getting late for American democracy.

Those who believe in the rule of law and American democracy must all speak out, shout out, and denounce the violent rhetoric and illegal actions of Trump’s fascist movement. And stand up, stepping out of the shadows, to defend American democracy. And act, publicly announcing their names and positions and declaring to the world that they are the authors of their actions.

The hour is growing late.
