They say I have the most loyal people… I could stand in the middle of 5th avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn’t lose any voters, okay? It’s like incredible. — Donald Trump
This is what fascists do. They kill people in the open, and then they get away with it, because enough people align with the racist, xenophobic, and nationalistic views of the murderer. And they just think it’s “incredible.”
Fascists murder people through policy. It happens slowly, but in the open. Those with enough historical intuition can see that this is the rhetoric that leads to Gulags, mass deportations, and genocides.
It can’t happen here.
