    I have a feeling that Trump would win a Republican primary even if he is indicted. The nuts keep selecting the worst candidates in primaries.

    People who like fascist DeSantis and Trump are just not very bright, they don't think things through very well, they just sort of do what they are told, and live in constant fear.

    I pity them honestly, to be so scared about someone or a party ruling them and upsetting their way of thinking is just too much for them to bare.

    Most of them live by the "ME FIRST" creed, they are selfish and unable to see the bigger picture.


    Pity, pity pity.

    First I thought it was just a typo, but you have been misspelling the same word pretty consistently.

    Just not very bright?

    Just a fast typer Grammar Nazi! - but being German you would know what a fascist is - and should be able to warn people off from one.

    DeSantis is a budding fascist.

    I think you are completely wrong on DeSantis. The hysterical throwing around of words like fascist without sufficient basis in fact is part of a wider problem of a lack of education.

    A little light reading on spelling.....

    Well as you can't vote and never will be, I guess you can take those opinions back to Germany and vote out fascists like him there.

    He ignores the rule of law, and the US Constitution, I get that you like his discriminatory practices about children's educational materials, but he has no clue how to properly govern - ask Floridians what happened when he tried to pull funding from Disney witch would force TAX payers to foot the bill.

    Ron DeFascistis is a budding dictator - I mean he is removing the REQUIREMENT that teachers have degrees.....WTF is that?

    Sorry to ruin your talking points with facts though...

    Don't fall into another cult of personality, that shows mental weakness.

    We will see how popular he is in Florida when he is up for re-election.

    Whether I will eventually vote in the US remains to be seen.

    The historian you quoted is clearly very far left.

    I get that the left doesn't like him and his policies. That doesn't make him a fascist.

    I hear he strongly prefers some faces to other faces, so he really is a facist.

    They only let the rich folks in who will pour in big money. The rest are just used and abused to incite against Dems.

    That's the truth. Screw the poor, the homeless, the domestic violence victims, the Vets, the mentally ill, the ones being discriminated against, and those who can't afford healthcare and medication.

    An anti-gay bigot who wants to rule by his personal beliefs. He likes horrible leaders like Hungary's, and coddled a criminal traitor Trump until he decided he wanted more power too. He might be smarter than Trump, but he's not much better.

    He's a far right dictator though...the US should never go down that path. Do the people of Hungary even have free speech?? Popularity is the problem with him and Trump.

    Britannica article on fascism:

    fascism - Conservative economic programs | Britannica

    There is some overlap with modern Trumpism, but what we're seeing today is different in many respects from historical fascism from the 20th centry Europe -- as one would expect. Here are the most salient points of overlap that I see:

    * opposition to parliamentary democracy
    * opposition to political and cultural liberalism
    * totalitarian ambitions
    * the "new man"
    * extreme nationalism
    * scapegoating
    * populism
    * revolutionary image
    * antiurbanism
    * sexism and misogny

    And? What does that have to do with anything? Just because people like Anti-Gay or racist leaders doesn't mean I want one as our President.
