    Yes Kzach, still not fascism. It's OK that you don't know what fascism means, but at some point I hope you read up on it.
    I like hats.

    Yeah, maybe not fascism. Trump doesn't have any ethos beyond Trump. More like Papa Doc Duvalier.
    We've always been at war with Eastasia.

    I think Trump would like to become a despot and govern simply by his own will and caprice.

    Who doesn't? We all want our needs to be immediately satisfied. Most of us just grow up and learn it doesn't work like that. Generally because we aren't from uber rich families and we learn rather quickly that our needs can't be satisfied immediately and endlessly.
    Signature too big and pornographic. Next offense will be a ban.

    I am starting to wonder if you aren't heading towards communism rather than fascism. Like Trump isn't going to play and sneaky switch-a-roo once his dictatorship is established and join his new allies.

    He really doesn't seem to care what methods he uses so long as he end up on top.

    He's more likely to end up as the communist dictator of Australia than here in the U.S.

    As I saw somewhere recently, Trump is unmoored from principle. He has objectives, and pursues them with whatever works best, with no underlying political principle guiding. As such, you can pick a subset of his actions and paint him with whichever political brush you want.

    This jus why it's a mistake to assume a political agenda for Trump. He had none, or rather, he had whichever works right then. This is similar to the "seriously, not literally" bit. If you listen to what Trump tells you he's doing and assume he'll take something close to that, you'll do much better at guessing what's coming than assuming that because he said X that means he agrees with the political or policy platform that X is associated with. Statement X is just currently expedient, there's no loyalty to that agenda.

    Which is why I've always said he's a Democrat.

    Trump wants his people to "sit at attention" when he speaks, like they do for Kim Jong-Un.

    Maybe executing a few of them using anti-aircraft guns would do the trick.

    Ah, I remember the good ole days when Ovi argued about the research showing Republicans had authoritarian tendencies, and I was willing to consider the idea that it was overstated. Those innocent days of early 2016.

    Seriously, an exercise for Trump supporters/apologists/Republicans: Can you name an instance where Trump has praised the governmental functions of a democracy? Best I can come up with off the top of my head is when he decided he wanted a military parade like the ones in France.

    Fuck you, cunt! I was gonna post that!



    Guess what his mentor is doing now? https://news.sky.com/story/vladimir-...ember-11404581

    Truth doesn't matter anymore: https://thinkprogress.org/trump-lied...-d1a52029dbcb/

    Oh, and is everyone aware that Russia gave NK nuclear physicists and engineers and plans to build their arsenal? And bypassed UN sanctions to supply materials? And that the only thing that actually happened at this Trumpilstiltskin-Kimjongpsycho summit, was that the war games, that Russia and China want stopped, are going to be stopped?

    Fuck me, nothing suss about that, eh?
