Trump’s Authoritarian Agenda Facing Real Pushback From Protesters

Trump protest (30750992850)

Nothing backs up faster than a politician facing an angry mob of voters who are fed up and not going to take it anymore.

Just weeks into the Trump Administration, frantic cries of fascism and authoritarianism are flying out of every corner of the Internet. What isn’t being pointed out loudly is that everything Trump is doing has been part of the GOP’s shadow agenda since, and before, the days of the New Deal.

Republican policies have been fascist for quite some time, albeit cleverly disguised as ‘conservatism.’ All that was missing for them to be exposed, was a candidate clever enough to trick voters into confusing fascism with populism. They found it in Trump. And now that it’s here, reality is waking up the electorate by the millions.

Raise your hand if you think America’s problem is that we have too much income and health care security in retirement.” 

Jared Bernstein

A simple internet search defines fascism as, “An authoritarian and nationalistic right-wing system of government and social organization.” The words dictatorship, xenophobia, racism, isolationism, and autocracy are also closely associated with fascism.

People who claim to be loyal Republicans, who also love their Medicare and Social Security, might just be the biggest chumps of all. Both of those programs are rooted in socialism. Yes, that same socialism that they were brainwashed into thinking was worse than the plague.

Fighting The Cruelty Of Conservatism

Dismantling Medicare and Social Security have been part of the hidden, and not-so-hidden, target of Republicans for decades. Now that the GOP has complete control of the government, the floodgates of bullshit have been opened.

As the LA Times reports,

Republicans and conservatives have plotted for decades to turn this flow of cash over to Wall Street via privatization. Financial firms would skim billions off the top, administrative costs would soar, and to make up for the diversion benefits would shrink. The promoters of these schemes can’t tell the truth about this, of course, so they talk about “reforming,” “revamping,” and “overhauling,” as though they’re dressing a crumbling old house with a new coat of paint.

As gullible Americans become convinced that immigrants and terrorists are ruining their lives, the politicians filling their ears with lies will be ripping their safety net out from under them. But it’s not too late to stop the bait-and-switch scam of ruthless conservatism.

There is a silver lining emerging from Trump’s alternative fact, fascist Republican, authoritarian administration. People of all party labels are waking up and protesting. It may not fully shut down all Trumpism, but it is making a difference.
