The big headlines of the current news cycle include Trump calling his political advasaries vermin (echoing Hitler and Mussolini), and his behind the scenes plan to rid the government of all civil servants and replace them with loyalists who will do whatever he wants.
This comes in the wake of Trump mocking the brutal attack on the husband of a political rival Trump has rhetorically attacked many times before, calling for the execution of a top general over charges of not obeying his presidential will, and encouraging police to shoot shoplifters on the spot, not to mention January 6th. There is of course, so much more I could mention but I'd be here all day.
My question is to anyone who would even consider voting for Trump, regardless of whether it's for Trump or against Biden (or whoever became the democratic nominee)...
Do you believe Trump is a fascist and/or an authoritarian? Yes or No?
This is not a Trump vs Biden thread so please save your whataboutisms. This is a very simple question, you either see this, or on some level you believe Trump actually cares about things like democracy, the rule of law, the strength of US institutions, etc. Which is it? And if not, perhaps you can enlighten the rest of us as to how his words/actions are being so badly taken out of context. But if you're going to go that route, please answer the question first.
