“As [Mussolini] was consolidating his power, he said, ‘if you pluck a chicken one feather at a time, nobody notices.’ We need to be concerned about the feather-plucking that is going on in the US! These tendencies run contrary to everything the United States of America stands for and yet the President embraces them in order to maintain his power. The media needs to be taking this conduct more seriously, instead, many outlets jump from story to story without connecting them to the broader story of Trump's brand of authoritarianism.When it comes to the American people, stay vigilant and never let Trump convince you that any of this is normal. Make sure your friends are aware of the dangers Trump poses to democracy and that it's not hyperbole. If nobody notices President Trump's feather-plucking in the midst of the chaotic news cycles that serve him, he wins."
