"Journalists must not get away with sugar coating this. This is the face of evil."

Democrats, read this article and PUSH BACK.... How? COUNTER RALLY through impeachment. Americans are waiting for LEADERSHIP, not mamby pamby do nothings. (Warren said "impeach!" and her polls have gone up ever since. Think about that).

A Fascist Trump Rally In Greenville

Scholars say the rally — where Trump supporters chanted “Send her back!” about Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar — is an escalation in America’s slide toward fascism.

...The Dawsons’ vision of mass deportation didn’t feel like much of a fringe position at Wednesday’s “Keep America Great” rally in Greenville. When the president took the stage, he reupped his call for four Democratic congresswomen of color, all four of whom are American, to “go back” to the countries they came from.

When the president attacked Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) — who came to this country as a Somali refugee before becoming a citizen — thousands of people inside the arena broke into a chant of “Send her back!” It was an arresting scene: a predominantly white crowd of thousands, many in red “Make America Great Again” hats, encouraging a receptive president to illegally deport one of his political opponents, who is a black, Muslim American woman.

To scholars of fascism — who have been ringing the alarm bells since Trump began his climb to power in 2015 — the rally in Greenville felt like an escalation. Like the U.S. just made another leap toward outright fascism.

“I am not easily shocked. But we are facing an emergency,” tweeted Jason Stanley, a Yale University philosophy professor and author of the book “How Fascism Works.”

“Journalists must not get away with sugar coating this,” Stanley wrote. “This is the face of evil.”
