Chris Riddell Cartoon sums up the tragedy of America’s slide into fascism.

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.

      1. Yes – idiot – and a partisan vote does not prove anything. The evidence is overwhelming. Russia did interfere in the American election of Trump. Trump does have a host of Russian business interactions and know connections. You should read more Moshe you make yourself sound daft.

      2. Correct – a partisan vote does not prove anything – idiot. Evidence – bunk. Totally and publicly refuted – shit for brains, you continue with the Russia-gate lies.

      3. The Russian government interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election with the goals of harming the campaign of Hillary Clinton, boosting the candidacy of Donald Trump, and increasing political and social discord in the United States.,discord%20in%20the%20United%20States.
        You need to stop reading right-wing propaganda.
        The Trump team were in cahoots with the Russians to undermine Clinton. Read the article.

      4. You can’t help the indoctrinated. You believe anything from a right-wing propaganda machine. Of course Hilary would seek to undermine her own campaign. Makes great sens.

      5. . Republican senators fear internal party challenges from Trumpists in their states, and they fear a base that is now the obedient creature of Donald Trump. Their only way out, they think, is to acquit a man they surely know – must know – is guilty as charged.

      6. He would wouldn’t he? He was employed by Trump – who later threatened to sack him for not coming up with enough evidence. Stinks.

      7. What was the Second Impeachment of Donald Trump? Shakespeare gave us the answer in his Scottish Play more than 400 years ago………………………………………………………………………….

        It was a walking shadow, a poor player
        That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
        And then is heard no more. It is a tale
        Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
        Signifying nothing.

I'd like to hear from you...
