We have seen this game played before.


Graphic mine

Trump era 2020 is full on danger zone for democracy and the rule of law. We have seen this game played before. They think they have got enough control of all the various levers of power to go full on totalitarian. I reckon that they are underestimating the free will of the majority of the American people. They are going to do everything they can to ensure fascism wins through nefarious measures. But if history tells us anything at all is that fascism always fails in the end, but it needs to be stopped NOW, while we are in the danger zone, rather than if we enter the end zone... that will take much longer to fix, many more deaths and bloody violence on the streets, and all of that is exhausting to even think about.

2. "I was born in Cuba under Castro, so I know what a dictator looks like."

I was born in Cuba under Castro, so I know what a dictator looks like. Donald Trump is on his way, and we have to stop him.

Nací en Cuba bajo Castro, así que sé cómo es un dictador. Donald Trump está en camino y tenemos que detenerlo

This should be playing on TV/internet/radio and printed in Spanish language newspapers all over Miami and in Texas and in South Carolina (12% hispanic) and in New York and in ….


'We're not gonna be manipulated.' Cracks form in Trump's Cuban-American base

"From the passenger seat of a Mercedes-Benz idling in the heart of America’s Cuban exile community, George Marrero explained Saturday why he would not vote again for President Donald Trump.

“This country has been abused for the last four years,” the retired Coral Gables police officer said while waiting for the start of a Cubanos con Biden caravan in the majority-Cuban city of Hialeah. “[Democratic presidential nominee] Joe Biden is going to bring back — like he’s said — the soul of America. It’s been lost.”

Amid evidence that Trump has significantly expanded his support among Miami-Dade’s traditionally conservative Cuban exile community, a counter-movement is afoot to show that there are thousands of Cuban-Americans in Florida who believe the president does not have their best interests at heart....

“I used to be middle class. Now I’m down at the bottom,” she said. “I was born in Cuba under Castro, so I know what a dictator looks like. Donald Trump is on his way, and we have to stop him.“

3. Withholding federal funds

In an ironic twist, Trump and Barr seem to be in favor of defending the police September 21, 2020
Today started off with Attorney General William Barr designating New York City, Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington, as “Jurisdictions Permitting Violence and Destruction of Property.” His statement responded to Trump’s September 2 memorandum calling for a review of funding to “state and local governments that are permitting anarchy, violence, and destruction in American cities.”
