This past weekend, the nation learned just how dangerous Donald Trump really is!
We saw violence and bullyism at public events by racists and nativists who were being rough, assaulting demonstrators at Trump rallies, and journalists being harassed by Trump aides, and Trump said he would support paying the legal fees of a 78 year old man who gave a sucker punch to someone being removed by police from a rally.
Trump blamed Bernie Sanders supporters, and called Sanders a Communist, and said he would send his supporters to disrupt Sanders’ s rallies. He would not tone down the rhetoric or tell his followers to avoid violence, and would not take responsibility for the hostile atmosphere his rhetoric and oratory has caused!
This display by Trump and his followers shows clear cut evidence of Fascist tactics, and it is clear to anyone who wished to keep his or her eyes open, that Donald Trump is a dangerous authoritarian figure who threatens the maintenance of civil order and democracy in America!
Trump is more dangerous than George C. Wallace was, or Pat Buchanan, or David Duke ever was, as he has millions of followers who are deaf, dumb or blind about the dangers of Trump becoming President.
It seems that Trump is someone who could, if a major untoward event occurred, such as a terrorist strike or the collapse of the stock market, convince enough Americans to elect him President, although if there is no such horrible event, the odds of a Trump victory are miniscule!
We cannot afford to have a demagogue, who could be a threat to the nation at large, ever reach the White House, and all efforts must be made to oppose Trump vigorously, before he gains power and threatens our way of life!
