Many of us have been in a state of shock since the idea of “Muslim IDs” was attributed to Donald Trump by Yahoo Politics reporter, Hunter Walker. The reaction to the purely and blatantly fascist plan has been as extreme as the differences between the parties. Many want to know if this is the moment that “Fascism comes to America, wrapped in the flag, and carrying a cross” however, “did he really say that?” is the only real question here. Without that answer, this is just another debate which falls squarely under Godwin’s Law.
If he did say this, then he is actually pushing fascism and needs a new mini-mustache so that his own party is forced to admit that they are KNOWINGLY supporting the kind of destructive governance and hatred that the Nazis implemented. If he is just stupid, er, not aware of what these “ideas” that means they (the sick minded GOP haters that want him elected) are knowingly supporting a man that is so politically inept he will be running this country as the Fourth Reich before he can say “OOPS.”
If he did not agree with these things — if this was simply a reporter twisting his words — then the reaction to these abysmally fearful, destructive, and reactionary ideas were a little, and I do mean a little, over the top. Luckily it appears that the reaction to this situation was justified.
As was written by Sinclair Lewis, in the book It Can’t Happen Here:
But he saw too that in America the struggle was befogged by the fact that the worst Fascists were they who disowned the word ‘Fascism’ and preached enslavement to Capitalism under the style of Constitutional and Traditional Native American Liberty.
