DONALD TRUMP: A FASCIST?
Ken Kastle is a parishioner with me at our church St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church in Abington, PA. He writes a blog called “Looking at Things Through My Eyes.” Mr. Kastle has had a long career in education and often views his politics as I do, so I often find his blog posts compelling. You can fund his blog here. Below is one of the posts to his blog, enjoy!
In a December 8, 2015 article by Henry Giroux published in Truth-Out.org, Giroux presents a strong argument that the content of Donald Trump’s candidacy for the U.S. presidency consists of “a blatant appeal to fascist ideology,” and his proposals are based in the fundamental principles of totalitarianism. Giroux draws vivid parallels between Trump and the fascist demagogues of the past such as Hitler, Mussolini, Pinochet, and others of that ilk.
This article should serve as a wake-up call for America’s electorate to recognize the content of Trump’s proposals for what they are–a call for a totalitarian state reminiscent of Hitler’s Germany–and to demand that the other candidates and the media call out Trump’s candidacy for the anti-democratic movement it is.
