OMalley: The GOP Was Hijacked By The Fascist Campaign Of Donald Trump.'

Thursday on “The Alan Colmes Show,” Alan spoke with former Maryland Governor and Democratic candidate for President Martin O’Malley, who said the Russian hacking of the DNC is the “most under-reported story of the general election.”

Gov. O’Malley, who has been trying to bring attention to the hacking controversy since the Democratic National Convention, said the country is facing a constitutional crisis and is glad Republicans like Sen. Lindsey Graham are standing up to the Putin regime. Gov. O’Malley also told Alan why he thinks the Republican party has been hijacked and his concerns over the number of military personnel who have been picked to join the Trump administration:

GOV. O’MALLEY: I do not believe that the party of Abraham Lincoln and Ronald Reagan is totally dead. It has been hijacked by the fascist campaign of Donald Trump. But it is still within our power to stop that fascist campaign, whether it’s electoral votes success from actually creating a repressive regime, or one that undermines the security of the United States. So I think there is still time, and I think our institutions can rise to this, and I’m counting on the Republican party rising to this occasion.

COLMES: Why do you call it a fascist campaign?

GOV. O’MALLEY: I think by any classic definition, let’s walk through a few of the common denominators of fascism. Number one, the fascist appeals, the first goal is to make the majority feel that their greatness is being stolen or robbed, or taken from them by a religious or ethnic minority. Secondly, the appeal toward an ethnic, or in our case a white, militarist nationalism, which is also the hallmark of this Trump campaign. You look at the numbers now in his administration of white generals who are being put into positions in the past we have put kind of a healthy separation and thought they were best headed by civilians and people not directly in military service.'
