Conservatives have worried about an Obama dictatorship for years. Mostly because he’s not white. Trump, on the other hand, exhibits all the tell-tale signs (attacking journalists, etc.) of a fascist authoritarian strongman who will use any means necessary to hold onto power. You’ve been warned, America. He admires Putin for a reason. Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola, Jimmy Dore, and Alonzo Bodden, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“You saw in my title, ‘The Trump Election Crisis.’ It is named after the Cuban Missile Crisis, because an authoritarian fascist has been nominated by a major political party for the first time in our country’s history. As a result, America is in its most dangerous and frightening period since the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Like the Cuban Missile Crisis, there could be Severe, imminent consequences if Trump gets elected. First is our relationships with other countries and other leaders. Then, ISIS, which is on the decline, will likely become an actual threat, because of what Trump has said about Muslims. Not to mention the potential stock market crash, like we saw in Europe after Brexit.
There are numerous threats, but the biggest one is the elephant in the room that the media won’t talk about, fascism. You see people on the right, all the time, who think their “freedoms” are being infringed, you know, because Michelle Obama wants our kids to eat a few damn vegetables, because Liberals would like to see the rich pay their fair share of taxes and because transgendered people can pee in whatever bathroom they choose. Now, even though tea-baggers think those things will destroy our democracy as we know it, they’re completely behind a candidate who may actually destroy democracy as we know it. Donald Trump told a CBS’ Miami affiliate, WFOR news station yesterday that he believes the First Amendment provides ‘too much protection’ for free speech. He’s threatening our actual freedoms.”*
