    You know, I’d laugh if it wasn’t so depressing how many will believe it yet not research fascism or reflect on how much fun they had skipping that topic in school.

    Edit: while advocating for a fascist government.

      The Republican use of the “fascist” accusation is entirely about muddying the waters to imply it’s just meaningless political noise. Same way “fake news” followed people rightfully pointing out that conservatives were getting actual fake news.

      It’s always projection. Always.

      And a lot of the ones projecting know damn well what they’re doing: accuse your enemy of doing the things you’re doing (or planning to do).

      I wouldn’t be surprised if the Trump campaign released an ad campaign tomorrow that looked like this with no hint of irony:

    Facist. Because a jury of 12 voted unanimously to convict him, on every single charge. Quite a conspiracy the Biden admin engineered there. /s

      Well, Biden, Hunter and his laptop, Hillary and her Comet Pizza, along with the Deep State ™, all engineered this so that the jury was selected from an area where the scene of the crime was. It simply isn’t fair that Ronald McDonald could not have it moved to a location where it’s nearly 100% magabrains, getting all of their “news” from Faux, that would be on the jury!

    Convicted Felon and Sex Offender Treason Trump shamelessly slanders our great country in 40-minute rant amid wild scenes outside his Manhattan home

    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    Donald Trump gave a rambling speech at Trump Tower on Friday, blasting the US as a “fascist state,” as political pundits ponder the fallout from his historic conviction – which he has already vowed to appeal.

    Trump became the first US president to be criminally convicted on Thursday, but said he would “continue to fight” the decision.

    Speaking to the press and assembled supporters on Friday, Trump claimed witnesses were “literally crucified” in his case as he slammed the judge yet again as being “highly conflicted” and a “tyrant.”

    Family members including his daughter, Ivanka, son Barron, and former first lady, Melania, were reportedly present at Trump Tower on Friday.

    The family is understood to have later gone to his club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

    A jury found Trump guilty on 34 counts of falsifying business records as part of an election conspiracy that involved covering up a $130,000 payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels, whose story of an affair threatened to derail his 2016 presidential campaign.


    The original article contains 181 words, the summary contains 168 words. Saved 7%. I’m a bot and I’m open source!

    He’s not wrong. Someone enabling fascism is just as guilty as the fascist. Fascism can never rise in power without a weak liberal party enabling them.

      Except no that’s now how culpability works under any system, there’s a reason every country on earth views being an accessory to a crime as lesser than committing it yourself.

    & Adolf Hitler was calling Churchill “a firebrand” & a threat to Europe.

    Gaslighting is something that machiavellians do.
