Why American Fascism Never Dies

Great replacement theory is hardcore fascism.
Not even Trumpian fascism-with-a-wink-and-a-nudge, but more like Goebbels-and-Himmler level, we’re-going-to-annihilate-you fascism. It is seriously, seriously disturbing and grotesque stuff. It is the kind of rhetoric which presages real genocides — from Armenia to the Balkans to Rwanda to, yes, Nazi Germany. It is a very, very bad harbinger and sign that a political party and side is now descending to the bottom-most levels of fascism.

All this POS needs is a thread with his name in it... ::) You realize you're basically promoting him, right? Not only there's no such thing as 'bad publicity'; for people like that, it's actually the preferred kind.

He's got an average nighttime audience of 4.3 million viewers, I doubt the 10 people that frequent this forum will make a difference there.

You don't fight fascism by pretending it doesn't exist.

Those millions come from friends and families.

Plus, following your logic, this isn't much of a "fight against fascism", either. :P

Frankly I'm scared shitless at the direction this country is taking.

The right wing is fully embracing authoritarianism and I don't know how you go about unringing that Bell.

“Unless you are willing to make these people feel economic pain, there’s no serious way to fight back against it. Google, Apple, Delta, they’re not going to stop beating up on Georgia for passing common-sense voter integrity measures just because we complain about it. Harvard University Endowment has a zero percent tax rate. Maybe it’s time to tax the endowment? Seize the endowment, actually penalize these endowments for being on the wrong side of some of these culture war issues.”

I mean they can take themselves out an they want, but the violence is unacceptable.


Sept. 30, 2021: A man wearing a U.S. flag bandana threw an incendiary device into the Travis County Democratic Party's East Sixth Street office early Wednesday, Austin Fire Department officials said.

Austin firefighters and police responded to the office at about 2 a.m. Thursday after receiving a 911 call about the fire. Neighbors were able to put out the flames with a fire extinguisher before firefighters arrived, Austin Fire Capt. Brandon Jennings said.

Investigators watched footage from security cameras that the Travis County Democrats installed last year after a similar attack, said Kate Naranjo, Travis County Democratic Party chair.

You mean you aren't peasants being dragged off to the gulag if they catch you with your mask off?

His lawyers actually got him out of a slander charge by arguing no reasonable person would believe what he says, yet his viewers eat that shit up.

Just read U.S. District Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil's opinion, leaning heavily on the arguments of Fox's lawyers: The "'general tenor' of the show should then inform a viewer that [Carlson] is not 'stating actual facts' about the topics he discusses and is instead engaging in 'exaggeration' and 'non-literal commentary.' "

She wrote: "Fox persuasively argues, that given Mr. Carlson's reputation, any reasonable viewer 'arrive[s] with an appropriate amount of skepticism' about the statement he makes."

maybe she needs to know if Fox has these "reasonable viewers" though.
