Who would have believed that this populism could harness virulent nationalism and slide so easily into fascism?? Who could believe it?
A short while ago these same senators that voted to acquit Trump were cringing for cover and having to be escorted from the Capitol by armed secret service to protect them from a mob, incited by Trump, seeking blood and seeking to overturn a legitimate election.
They were threatened by Trump that if they did not support him he would orchestrate his boot-boys to vote them out of office.
These senators have received death-threats. Their families have been threatened.
Is this what democracy looks and sounds like in America today? Ruled by the mob and not by law and order? Ruled by a fascist dictator who sits in the wings and deploys his bully-boys to do his will?
Is this what the Republican party now stands for?
Was this what draining the swamp was all about?
So now lies, fear and hate rule and morality goes out the window.
