Right Wing / Left Wing Authoritarianism

Recommended Posts

I see lots of comments from @BSUTOP25 and others about authoritarians on the right and the left....

The fact is the United States has always been a center right country.  True Socialist positions like sole provider healthcare can’t even gain traction in the Democratic Party much less the general election.   Other countries ban guns we argue about laws to restrict access by the mentally ill.  Salary caps like seen in the USA Sports leagues would be illegal in Europe.  Many “Democrats” in the US would be part of the Center Right German Free Democratic Party.   

The reality is the US is a long way from left wing authoritarianism.  Under Trump the same can’t be said of right wing authoritarianism.   We are dangerously close to becoming a right wing authoritarian state.   

Trumps authoritarian behaviors have always been present.  Since the purge of restraining cabinet members like Mattis, Kelly and Tillerson and the impeachment acquittal his authoritarian actions have escalated.   It is a fallacy to say others have done the same:  

No one has fired inspector generals investigating corruption in their admin.

No one has fired US Attorney’s investigating associates

No one has leveraged US aid as a bribe to foreign governments to investigate political rivals.

No one has used phony emergency orders to contravene Congress’s power of the purse

No one has pardoned someone for obstructing behavior about themselves

No one has dramatically over charged the government for using their personal assets 
 

The US is rapidly descending into a fascist state.  That isn’t hyperbole it is a statement of fact.

That rabbit is a bit large given her support level don’t you think.   A cockroach might be more analagous.

Haha.  Pretty funny.   You do know if Trump wasn’t such a significant authoritarian threat I would consider vote for her.  Of course, if Trump wasn’t such an authoritarian threat Amash would be running instead of her.

Btw, are you surprised Amash decided not to run for his Congressional seat?   I was hoping he could run and win as a Libertarian.

Since Amash will be unemployed perhaps he might take the Attorney General job.   He might be one of the few that could restore confidence in the DOJ after Holder and Barr.

Btw you claim Commie and Facist is too far but insinuating someone is a pedophile is somehow not crossing the line?

Insinuating and calling something out for what it is are too different things.

Can you just quote once you knucklehead?

Amash would never serve under a creepy racist pedophile. He has principles.
