I do think that in the alternate universe that looked probable in February - continued broad-based economic growth and a socialist opponent intent on tearing up the system - Trump is romping at this point.
‘Biden is to Socialism as Grump is to White Supremacy.


ohhhh, wait..........

The latest Trump tweet says, "Corrupt Joe is shot."

I suppose only crazy people would see any suggestive language there, eh?

I guess there just is no Republican Party anymore. Just the Coward Party that will not dare to say a word as the White Supremacist in the WH trashes the US both literally and figuratively on a daily basis.

And suggests to his Nazi followers that Biden should be taken out. It is starting to look like Trump would foment civil war if his poll numbers keep tanking.

Yup, only crazy people would. When you're looking for something, you see it everywhere.

That is why Trump’s base is so dangerous.

They will sit in a council meeting, totally accepting that smoking is not allowed because it may prejudice the health of others, while they rant that wearing a mask in the same room so as not to prejudice the health of others is an outrageous affront on their freedom of choice.

And, I think, it's time to repaint The White House. You know, that great Rolling Stones song..

If the media simply reports what Trump and his cronies do it will always seem biased.

That is simply because he is trashing the country. How can you spin that?
The point is - Trump is bad enough as he is. He is indeed an unsavory, selfish, boorish character. There is no need to dehumanize and demonize him as a creature utterly incapable of doing anything good. Or (mis)interpret every single thing that he says or does, even politically or socially irrelevant ones. Like, that monster Trump gets two scoops of icecream, everyone else gets one. Yes, that was also national news. I'm just taking a little harmless example. There are others that clearly belong more to the area of character assassination.

That is what I find disconcerting, not criticism of Trump. And the main reason is because it resembles communist and/or fascist propaganda more than I'll be ever ready to digest.

Just like in 2016, I'm finding myself in an impossible situation where you are not sure who you detest more - Trump or his most ardent and craziest opponents in the media.

Who are those ardent, crazy opponents in the media?

Do you mean that he is incapable doing anything good? Or that everyone knows it, so there is no need to keep saying it?
Or that he is capable of doing something good?

If you really want to see some fascist propaganda you just have to wait for Trump’s next tweet, it seems.

Of course I think he is capable of doing good things. For example, I lean towards non-interventionism, and his record in that area is better than I expected.

You don't see the crazy opponents in the media? But there are some demented people there. People you know you wouldn't want to meet in real life and have a chat with. One day someone will write a book on that subject. I can name names with examples, if that is necessary...you can make a really solid case there.

When I talk about communist/fascist propaganda I refer to the methods, not the ideology. And the main method is to dehumanize and demonize, hit the character rather than policies. In sports terms you are not going after the ball, you are going after the player, and sports fans will say it is not fair.
