Much like mindless lemmings, some but not all trump supporters follow blindly as they chant “make America great again.” What do these people think made America great at one time? What made America less great before his presidency? Blinded by prejudice, indifference and hate these supporters cannot see just how far they are being goose-stepped away from freedom and democracy. A professor from Berkley University in California compared trump to infamous dictators from the past; Hitler, Mussolini, Franco. There are common denominators; first was blaming a certain ethic group for a countries problems, second is speaking of “the great yesterday.” IE… “Make America great again…” In terms of rationality, many use “alternative facts” to state their case. Or much like his views on climate change, they just use denial as their argument. Even when you have proof, it is considered “rigged” or part of some conspiracy by the Democrats/Liberals. There is no way to reason with people of this mentality! Under the facades of; national security, betrayal, and more jobs for workers… Legalized US citizens are being detained, a woman who stood up against a potential unlawful order was fired and Mother Earth is being stripped of her rights to survive.

In Hitler’s Germany, it was the brown shirts who committed violence. In Trump’s America it is the opposition which creates violence. They gleefully trash the streets of Berkeley, then blame Milo, or Trump, or the patriarchy.
No justice, no peace has always been a threat.
