    So neo-nazism and facism is the fault of people who want the opposite of that?

    No. Fuck that noise. The fault is of racists, bigots and dumb, selfish fucks.

    Eh, perspective matters. From the malcontent's perspective, this is as much about the working poor lashing out at the bourgeoisie (currently embodies by silicon valley, technocrats, and the tenured intelligentsia) as anything else.

    Are those people bigoted? Hell yes! They've just been kept "in line" by the unions they either belonged to or aspired for the past several generations.

    Welcome (back) to populism!

    Sounds a bit premature. The racist haven't achieved any reversals yet.

    And you have to remember. You had a black president for 8 years. That means a majority of voters thought a black guy was qualified for president twice. The first time without knowing how he'd be in action and just listening to his campaign promises, and the second time after having seen him in action for 4 years.

    You really think that you can somehow revert this decidedly non-racist stance in the public? Do you really think that any perceived or actual racism in Trump was really the reason he won? That a guy who let his daughter marry a Jew would somehow propel Anti-Semitism in the US?
    You have build up a racist boogeyman out of Trump with quite likely very little basis in fact. What do you do when there is a really an openly racist person that is endorsed by the KKK and applauds this endorsement is trying to get elected? Will you still have ammunition left, or will people think you're just again crying wolf?


    Trump seems to be a narcissistic asshole that has no experience whatsoever in governmental positions, and has basically already revealed to be pretty ignorant of what kind of work and responsibilities would lie ahead from him. That he, as an established businessmen relying on the existing system would be willing to actually change this system is highly questionable. But revert decades of social progress that were reaffirmed by the last 2 presidential elections?

    Stay vigilant, yes, but don't forget to be critical of yourself and don't take your own wisdom for granted and absolute.

    The Left has stared into the Abyss. The lack of self-awareness will reach epic proportions.

    This is my prediction for the next four years.

    Well, hopefully this would fall into the "misdemeanors" that could trigger an impeachment. But then you still need to get 2/3 of the Senate to oust him. It'll depend on if Trump rubber stamps legislation or not.

    You... you don't actually know what fascist means... do you?

    Here's a hint: Trump.

    He likely does understand what fascist means and no, that doesn't apply to the current US system of government.
    Hop on in, this rabbit hole is deep.

    Get a clue and stand in line. I didn't say it did. I intimated that Trump was a fascist.

    Give it time. You'll figure it out.
