Trump Is Catastrophic No Matter What His Stance on Globalism Is

Jason Y: OK, one choice is taking up Ron Paul anti-globalism, which would reduce him to Jimmy Carter uselessness, or just lie and actually be a globalist, and a massively militaristic one at that.

Why is it down to globalism versus anti-globalism? Leaving that aside altogether, looking at his Cabinet appointment shows him to be an ultra-rightwing fanatical reactionary. Look at those Cabinet appointments. That’s all you need to know right there. Those are some of the scariest people I have ever seen in my government.

Actually, the truth is that he is an out and out fascist. That’s no exaggeration. It is absolutely correct. People have been calling the Republicans fascists since the election theft of 2000, and I think they were onto something. That is, they were moving more and more in that direction.

The Republicans are now about as evil as a typical brutal and corrupt Latin American ultraright fascist oligarchy. This is exactly what they remind me of. I look at them and I think of the oligarchical Right in Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Venezuela, Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Ecuador, Peru, Argentina, Bolivia and Paraguay.  The only thing missing is overt coup attempts and death squads. To be more precise, they remind me of the Right in Venezuela, but comparisons to Chile, Paraguay, Bolivia, Brazil, Honduras, Haiti and Ecuador are not far off base.

The leaders of the Latin American Right pretty much deserved to get killed based on how they act. I do not blame the Left down there for killing those people. They very much deserve it. Look at how they act!

They have an extreme hatred for democracy, and basically their attitude is that they will not tolerate the Left being in power for one day. And when the Left gets in, they will try everything in the book, legal, illegal and in between, to get rid of them. There is nothing too low for them. If they have to tell 10 million lies, they will do it. If they have to steal elections, then they will do it. If they have assassinate leftwingers, they will do it. If they have to destroy the whole economy, they will do it. If they have to riot in the streets, they will do it. If they have to run death squads, then they will do it. If they have to mount coups, military or legislative, than they will do it. The ends justifies the means, and it’s “whatever it takes to get rid of the Left, damn morality.”

    Trump would be the first fascist without a core of street activists which even Oswald Moseley had. Why, he’s not even as authoritarian as Putin, who indeed has NASHI and other fascist-like groups.

    But of course the question remains, will Trump be a good authoritarian or a bad authoritarian? Much of the answer depends on the issues Ian Welsh
    places under consideration.

    “Republicans?” You mean like Graham, McCain and other warmongering Russophobes who are out to undermine Trump? Like Paul Ryan who are out to undermine his protectionist leanings? Yeah, they’re evil. Let’s hope
    Trump is an authentic opponent of them.
    Right now it does come to globalism vs anti-globalism. And the chief list of suspects who would be violent against Trump and his coterie are minority-liberal globalists.

    Like Welsh says, crying over Caeserism is like crying over physics.
    Like a Welsh commentor says

    “Much of the agitprop on Trump is proof positive he’s one of the good guys. Anyone who can terrify Hollywood, the DNC, RNC and globalist elite – is my kinda guy.”

    Republicans have always had unofficial street activists. I mean, in my area, look how many people went to Chick-fil-a restaurants during that whole gay bashing thing. Not to mention in other comments, I mentioned these unoffical punks harass outspoken liberals on college campuses etc..

    “Much of the agitprop on Trump is proof positive he’s one of the good guys. Anyone who can terrify Hollywood, the DNC, RNC and globalist elite – is my kinda guy.”

    It’s all a scam to get into power. The next move, and it’s already happening, is turning into a Super Ronald Reagan.

  3. A Muslim Pakistani would be an expert on this, huh?

    Sorry, I lived in India and I am dubious Tulio.

    I wonder what Dota and Bay Area guy would make of this post. Dots made a post on their website a few weeks ago that debunked any claim to Trump being a fascist.

      iirc BAG said Trump was a crypto-neocon and that basically the alt right was retarded for thinking otherwise.
      That would probably mean they deny he’s a fascist other than supporting ‘Israeli fascism’.

    • Christopher, new policy is all regular commenters have to donate. $10 and you comment forever. If that is a problem for you, email me and let me know. You have been around here for quite some time though, so it would be sad to see you go.

    Has anyone seen the movie Gangs of New York? The whole hateful climate sort of reminded me of now. Remember the one scene where the Irish are getting off the ship and some hecklers throw something hard at them and it hits an old woman’s head.

    Any progressive who flirted with how great a Trump presidency would be should take a look at what he wants to do with the education department.

    It’s essentially creating an Obamacare system for the public schools. Vouchers for parents, but undoubtly with few cost controls….parents will be so cut-throat to get their kids into the “good” schools prices will be high and profitable, possibly excluding some poor and rural students from an education all together.

    I really was pretty bummed and sat this election out. I half-think I should’ve voted for Hillary.
