    “When fascism comes to America, it will come wrapped in the flag and waving a cross.”

    The above quotation has been attributed to author Sinclair Lewis. He didn’t write it, but he did write something similar in his 1935 novel “It Can’t Happen Here”: “But he saw too that in America the struggle was befogged by the fact that the worst Fascists were they who disowned the word ‘Fascism’ and preached enslavement to Capitalism under the style of Constitutional and Traditional Native American Liberty.”

    Today we are seeing signs of exactly what Lewis warned us against, as exemplified by Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. For those who aren’t sure what fascism is, here’s a short review.

    Fascism puts loyalty to the nation above all else, even above religious faith. Christianity and other faiths become tools of the government, used to guarantee submission. The military is supreme, and national security is an obsession. If individual rights interfere with this obsession, those rights are sacrificed.

    ...If any of this sounds familiar, it should. The right-wing has been promoting fascist principles for decades....

    Donald Trump Praises Man He Once Called A Neo-Nazi

    In 2000, Trump called Pat Buchanan a neo-Nazi. In 2015, he’s singing his praises.
