The rise of Trump, and to a lesser extent Ted Cruz, is remarkably similar to the rise of Hitler and Mussolini. An authoritarian, racist, autocratic, totalitarian, religious bigot, fascist appealing to an angry electorate. Trumps over-the-top behavior resembles Silvio Berlusconi. So do his “policies.”
This begs the question: “What are these people so angry about that they’d support someone like Trump or Cruz?” The answer is simple: they don’t know. They just like being pissed. It gives them a convenient excuse for blaming all their problems on others rather than facing up to the fact that it is they themselves who are to blame.
Problem is, no one ever makes good decisions when angry.
When Fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.
