Gotta say this. It's not much of a thread topic in its simplicity.

I think it's important to use framing as a weapon in political communications.

Here's my frame:

It's not the Republican Party. It's not the Trump Party. It's the American Fascist Party.

People might be enamored with Trump, and there's nothing that can be done about that.

But they may not be enamored with fascism.

It's important to separate Trump from the method of governing he's proposing.

It's not important to frame the GOP as a Trump Cult. That gets us nowhere. But "fascism"? That's a different matter.

The Dems MUST stop reacting to a Trumpian narrative and make its own. It's fascism that's the issue.

And please, media pundits, stars, and anchors. STOP framing Trump's Administration as a would-be MONARCHY. That's not helpful. He's not a would-be king. He's a would-be fascist DICTATOR. There's a big difference between the two frames. Stop being gentle about Trump's coup. Stop with the "king" shit. That's not what's happening.
