'The View’ Pushes Panic That ‘Trump Could Turn America Into a Fascist Country’
These brainless old hens show vividly that they are just scratching around in the dust and have no clue about their subject. Both Mussolini and Hitler were energetic socialists. Where are Trump's socialist tendencies?
It was Obama who tried to do an end-run around Congress with "a pen and a phone". That pen and phone created a whole host of regulations -- which Trump is now busily abolishing. So who is the Fascist again?
Once again we have that good ol' Leftist projection: Blaming on others what is true of themselves. Freud would understand.
Note: To protect myself from the speech police, I should note that I don't claim the ladies ARE old hens. Their behaviour just reminds me of old hens scratching for minutiae in the dirt
The women of The View, Tuesday, eagerly promoted the idea that a fascist Donald Trump might bring a dictatorial reign to America. Promoting ex-Secretary of State Madeleine Albright’s new book, the ABC show’s announcer panicked: “Why is former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright warning that President Trump could turn America into a fascist country?”
Previewing Albright’s appearance on the show, the announcer hyped: “Still ahead, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright on why she says Donald Trump is the most anti-democratic president in American history.”
Co-host Sara Haines uncritically promoted the threat of fascism under Trump:
We want to talk about your book. So Fascism: A Warning. You write, “Some may view this book and its title as alarmist, good.” That's your quote. Coming from you, that should scare a lot of people. Are you actually afraid that America could become a fascist nation?
Trump has been president for over a year and the 2018 midterms are still scheduled for November 6, 2018. If you believe the media, the Republicans are headed for an electoral wipe out. So, it’s a little hard to see where the fascism comes in.
Albright vaguely explained how her book, which mentions Hitler and Mussolini, compares to current politics: “I'm worried about some of the steps that take place and the reason I wrote the book is really historical in terms of what happens in other countries.”
Joy Behar helpfully announced “attack on the press” and “lying” as examples of Trump’s connection to fascism. However, on January 5, 2016, Behar admitted that Ted Kennedy abandoning a woman to drown and Bill Clinton lying about sexual abuse don’t matter to her:
People have to understand, it's policy. Teddy Kennedy. Remember Chappaquiddick?.... A girl drowns and he abandons her and she drowned and women still voted for Teddy Kennedy. Why? Because he voted for women's rights. That's why. That's the bottom line of it in my opinion. I mean, I don't like either one of them, to tell you the truth, Teddy or Bill. They're both dogs as far as I'm concerned. But I still will vote for Bill Clinton because he votes in my favor.
So maybe her concerns about “fascism” ring a little hollow
