Leaving public because over the next four years this will either be proven entirely wrong, or horrifyingly correct. I hope for the former.

That is quite a subject line. "Trump is a fascist." Some might call it inflammatory, harsh, even premature.

I believe it is timely, and accurate.

There are a few terms that often get incorrectly thrown around in political discourse, and I usually hate seeing them. "Treason" is one. Treason is a crime with a specific definition in our Constitution, but often the term is thrown around against anyone we disagree with. "Obama/Bush/Clinton should be tried for treason!" cry conservatives and liberals alike, displaying nothing more than their misconception of what treason actually means. "Nazi" is another often misused word, as is "Hitler," and "fascism."

Yet I just called Trump a fascist above. Am I contradicting myself?

My case for Trump as a fascist. )
