LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Fascism on rise in United States

Arizona Immigration Customs & Enforcement separated 1,400 migrant children from their parents. Arizona ICE lost the children.

World War II historian Robert Paxton says fascism is “a form of political behavior marked by obsessive preoccupation with community decline, humiliation, or victimhood and by compensatory cults of unity, energy, and purity, in which a mass-based party of committed nationalist militants, working in uneasy but effective collaboration with traditional elites, ABANDONS DEMOCRATIC LIBERTIES and pursues with redemptive violence and WITHOUT ETHICAL OR LEGAL RESTRAINTS goals of internal cleansing and external expansion”.

Emphasis mine.

If you are for ethics, democracy, the rule of law, you must be anti-fascist.
Jewish people, those who have historically insisted nothing can be compared to the Holocaust, are comparing Trump’s USA to Hitler’s Germany.

Do you hear the alarm clock here?

People of that rising fascist party need to decide if it is more important to be ethical human beings than to be party loyalists. Trump voters, conservatives, right-wingers, registered Republicans, what will you do?
