When the word fascist is used in print, it always refers to supposed foreign enemies of the state.The term is never used to refer to Americans in high office no matter how egregious or brutal their crimes have been. By avoiding the use of the word fascism, MSM analysis fails our democracy -- we as citizens can’t look at Trump and judge him by historical standards. His actions may be outrageous and deplorable, but we remain oblivious to the pattern of a fascist leader that he exhibits. Fascism may be encouraged by someone with the right combination of charisma and viciousness, but in the end it becomes a social illness that moves whole populations towards war and genocide. Getting past this simplistic use of the term for enemy leaders, there are some aspects of fascism that fit Trump quite exactly. “Eternal Fascism” is especially revealing.
