Signs that the dspot is making his move

http://www.salon.com/2016/11/20/autocratic-for-the-people-as-donald-trumps-populist-wave-recedes-an-...

 

"So what do we look for? NBC News chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel noted that autocrats have several tells. Engel said we should look for attacks on religious minorities and immigrants; scapegoating the media; attacks against “un-American” behavior; use of the words “traitor” and “cancer” to characterize dissenters; and then large-scale rallies by Trump loyalists, followed by populist “referendums” to circumvent Congress, and so forth.

Whatever you might be thinking to the contrary, it can absolutely happen here. Trump’s election is self-evident proof."

Yes signs it has started are the bigots, racists and hate mongers carrying out more attacks and discrinatory actions against minorities and 'those others'.

It has been signalled that it is alright by Trump with his hate filled speaches and it is even flowing across the border into Canada as those crimes are up here too.

Well, duh, ba. That is what the guy said--it COULD happen here. With the fact that he got elected and has chumps like carrying his water and liking every thing he says , it really could happen here.

BA, should people that believe the government has the power to force a person into a private contract complain about an authoritarian government?

Hey Sam, these "smart/truther" liberals are high functioning hypocrites for sure.  The dumb liberals just want the free stuff and resort to name calling and that`s about the extent of them, but those that are smart enough to claim they want freedom, yet are reduced to a blubbering puddle after Hillary lost, just beat everything. Trump should be progressive enough for everyone, assuming you ain`t a Mexican or making out like a bandit in the free trade scam.

 

I think that`s what`s got liberals worried, we started fighting fire with fire.  In the past we`d have a GOP candidate that messed up lighting the candles as a confirmation alter boy...so "oh no! you can`t have him, he didn`t light the candles from right to left!".  Well things are so deperate that we overlook the hot ex-wives, tang grabbing and stuff like that, we elected someone that`ll get the job done.  The plane is about to crash because for 8 years we had commie as president and had to give him every ridiculous chance in the world to succeed, now we just need a danged good pilot to figure how we`re going to get over the mountains on one engine.

Re: Signs that the dspot is making his move

Lets see, the person you voted for is part of a couple that has spent decades in pursuit of political power, has built vast wealth brokering that power, has built a politically  connected network that spans the globe and protects them from any investigation, and your worried about trump becoming a despot?  How disconnected from reality is that?

Re: Signs that the dspot is making his move

Lets see, the person who won the prize has no experience in politics, no plan on what he will do, is a racist, bigot, misogynist, hate filled person selling fear of 'those others' and thinks bombs and nuclear weapons are the answer to wars on the other side of the world.

 

Now what can go wrong there?

Hillary is a warmonger, the favorite of the neo cons, the neolibs and the military industrial complex.  Get in touch with reality.
