    Like Trump right with the forced patriotism and police state mentality, I thought conservatives were all about small government?

      POTUS calling for the dismissal of private sector employees sounds very fascist to me.
      from wiki: fascism as an ideology is also hard to define. Originally, "fascism" referred to a political movement that was linked with corporatism and existed in Italy from 1922 to 1943 under the leadership of Benito Mussolini.

      and then there's this: Trump’s is both conservative and totalitarian. But in a new Yahoo News profile, Trump makes an alarming proposal that echoes the practice of making Jews in Europe wear yellow badges.
      Look at what he told Yahoo’s Hunter Walker, after insisting that “we’re going to have to do certain things that were frankly unthinkable a year ago” to monitor Muslims in America.

        What are you talking about? There is a huge difference between nationalism and fascist nationalism. Every country that survives has a nationalistic population.

        Fascism is things like the minimum wage and Obamacare.

            To those who trust Youtube bloggers as much as (or more than) academic and journalistic experts, here's a treat from Twin Peaks: The Return.


            If you saw the original show in 1990, you may recall the camera often zoomed in on a soap opera, Invitation to Love, playing on the townspeople's tv sets. David Lynch updated that motif for the 21st century. Now many of us are watching idiots on corners of the web who only half know what they're talking about but will rant on and on with so many words that it convinces some people they've got expertise and insight.

Everything ('cept the TimeFactor and dt-10) is modded, with much help from folks at Harmony Central. Thanks everybody!

              yeah, not so much.

              This sounds like Trump. A whole lot like Trump:

              wiki:
              Fascists believe that liberal democracy is obsolete, and they regard the complete mobilization of society under a totalitarian one-party state as necessary to prepare a nation for armed conflict and to respond effectively to economic difficulties. Such a state is led by a strong leader—such as a dictator and a martial government composed of the members of the governing fascist party—to forge national unity and maintain a stable and orderly society. Fascism rejects assertions that violence is automatically negative in nature and views political violence, war, and imperialism as means that can achieve national rejuvenation.

                That sounds like BLM and Antifa.

                Just saying.

                And my comment is about the internal government control of private business. Affirmative action was also fascist.

                You need to look past the wiki "cliff notes" explanation and dig a little deeper, son.

                      Nope. Not playing 20 questions. I just love to get into this whole Fascist thing though. I first got into trying to understand it when I became a big WWII history buff in the early 1970's.

                      A lot of people don't know that, although fascist regimes have been around for a long time, it was Mussolini who coined the phrase.

                      And, most importantly, those that are wearing masks as screaming from the streets that they are "anti-fascists" are, themselves the fascists.By definition.

                          I didn't realize the bill has been officially shelved. (http://www.npr.org/2017/09/26/553712...are-vote-again ) That's nice. But don't worry Trump fans, Republicans promise a very detailed paper tomorrow about their tax reform proposals. I'm sure every bit of it will be understood by our genius president, and it will bring all kinds of winning.

                            Keep on bringing the hate, I love it.

                            When's the Civil War going to start, good thing the rednecks kept their guns. How many guns do you think the progressive left has.

                            This will be so much fun. I'm surprised there's been no gunfire yet at the rallies.
