FAR-RIGHT POPULISM MORE COMMON, MORE DANGEROUS, THAN NEO-FASCISM. WE'LL GET FASCISM WHEN DEMOCRACY IS REJECTED AND VIOLENCE EMBRACED

There have been salutes, and a whiff of violence but with a television huckster, a phony billionaire, immorality, a textbook egomaniac 'tapping into' popular resentments and insecurities, and with an entire national political party — out of ambition or blind party loyalty, or simply out of fear — falling into line behind him."

"To be a fascist in America, you have to be on a website talking about how the presidential system is controlled by the Zionist Occupied Government,"

One thing for sure, HE'S NOBODY'S SAVIOR!

... if Donald Trump isn't a fascist, what is he?

Well, he's a right-wing populist. And while fascists are rare in 2015, right-wing populists are not. In fact, it's kind of weird that America hasn't had a real one before now. The UK has the UK Independence Party (UKIP); France has Marine Le Pen and the Front National; Germany has Alternative for Germany (AfD) and the anti-Muslim Pegida movement; Sweden has the Sweden Democrats; the Netherlands has the Party for Freedom and its leader, Geert Wilders.

These parties have a lot in common with Trump. They're fiercely anti-immigration and particularly critical of Islam, couching their bigotry as a reasonable precaution and stoking fear about homegrown terrorism. They draw support away from more establishmentarian, business-friendly right-wing parties. They tend to be led by individual, charismatic figures without whom they'd be substantially weakened. They tend to be more sympathetic to welfare programs and the safety net than traditional conservatives, much as Trump has vocally defended Social Security against more traditional candidates like Chris Christie who would cut it.

But they are not fascists. They still believe in democracy, and they want traditional liberal democratic protections for their white base. "They're still at bottom democrats rather than fascists," Feldman says. "I think the fitting term is 'illiberal democrats.' They would give full democratic rights for white Christians, or perhaps Jews, but exclude the outgroups of the 21st century: mostly Muslims but also Mexicans. It's really prejudice against them. We're congratulating ourselves to say that anyone who engages in that prejudice is fascist."

What's up with all the capitals in the header? Desperate cry for attention? Better pay per word? Any other reason? Genuinely curious, please respond.

Sounds like Omar or Rashida Tlaib to me. But are they populists? Maybe to the Muslim community. Certainly they aren’t Trump supporters.

You fail because you refuse to see the truth.

Look at a newspaper. Headlines are generally in caps. It stands out and looks right too. Be sure to ask the Times editor too.

You are all so triggered.

The pattern is to pick at the source, the writer, some ideology, now the typesetting, any little thing you can say you know about the person who posted, it doesn’t even matter how small, just any little thing at all for a laugh or a taunt.

Anti intellectual far right tries to equate thinking with emasculation. This observation is held widely. —references omitted because fuck you

That you think Trump is your savior, I knew that was coming.

By "newspaper", do you mean your link? I looked. Unlike your title, the case in the given quote is all proper (probably the only thing that's proper in there). So, I'll add another question to the list:
- What's up with all the capitals in the header? Desperate cry for attention? Better pay per word? Any other reason?
- Why would you send me to a source which contradicts your claim?
Genuinely curious, please respond.

You know time and time again these lone killers have no network of support, no imam that radicalized them. No donors that financed their violent endeavorers, no organization the actively recruit people like them for such purposes. And time and time again the Scumbag Lying Media and the Party they depend on, says the group of mass killers that do have such support systems back and encouraging them as "Lone Killers" with mental problems.

Why is that?

Also has it escaped the grasp of the Liberals the killer hated our Conservative President?

I wouldn't rule out he was radicalized by Leftists to kill these people so they could blame Trump. Even though his manifesto says he hates Trump.
