The Republican Party reveals its fascist leadership in how Republicans vote in Congress and in the states controlled by Republicans.
Actions are more powerful than lies and misinformation, because those action are facts that cannot be denied except by liars. And fascism has always succeeded due to BIG LIES and the dangerous fools that believe them.
Adolf Hitler in Germany, Benito Mussolini in Italy, Francisco Franco in Spain and Juan Perón in Argentina were the most well-known fascist leaders of the 20th century.
Hitler’s enablers murdered more than 16-million people, not counting troops that died fighting Nazi fascism.
In Italy, from 1920 to 1922, Mussolini’s armed fascist squads faced minimal interference from the police or army as they roamed the country causing property damage and killing an estimated 2,000 political opponents.
In Spain, historical analysis and investigations estimate the number of executions by Franco facist regime during this time to be between 100,000 and 200,000 dead.
In Argentine, under fascist leadership, up to 30,000 people “disappeared” by the state during Peron’s “Dirty War,” a period during which the country’s military dictatorship turned against its own people.
And all of these estimates may be much higher.
In the 21st century, the fascist leaders in the Repulibican party are: Traitor Trump, Republican governors Ron DeSantis, Greg Abbot and all the other Republican governors signing state laws that restrict the people’s individual freedoms for abortion, who to marry, how to have sex, the choice to wear condoms while having sex with a willing partner of legal age, restricting the ability to vote unless you are a fascist supporter, et al. These American fascists even want to make it illegal for raped children of any age from having abortions. They’ll throw the child and her parents in prison, but not the rapist.
How many Americans will be murdered, and how many lives ruined, by our Republican fascist leaders if they end up leading the United States?
Historian Heather Cox Richardson writes today about some recent votes in Congress that defined what Republicans are against.
Republicans believe that states should control which rights are protected inside their borders. They do not believe in abortion rights. They do not believe in the right to have access to contraception. They do not believe in marriage equality. They do not believe that women have the right to cross state lines if they are pregnant. (How Will states enforce that last belief? By administering pregnancy tests to every woman under 50 who is attempting to leave a state where abortion is illegal?)
What do they believe in? Not freedom or liberty, since they legislate constraints on private action. They do believe in censorship, bans on behavior in the privacy of your bedroom, bans on topics that may be discussed in the classroom. Republicans want to restore a mythical world of white…
