Arming teachers doesn’t protect students, it turns schools into one-stop shopping for would-be school shooters.
In 1994 I learned a set of characteristics that apply to authentic fascists and under what conditions they can come into power. Based on this definition, I said Donald was a fascist before the 2016 election. Since he’s been in office, the evidence in support of that contention has grown much stronger.
January 2018 saw 155 examples of horrible behavior, with the biggest increases coming in the categories of belittling and mocking people and immigrant-hating, with smaller increases in authoritarianism, propaganda, and attacking equal protection under the law.
Forget “presidential,” Donald’s State of the Union address met the most categories of horrible words and deeds (22 out of 51 tracked) of anything Donald has done since I started tracking his horrible behavior last July.
Our patriarchal culture, where power is vested in men, leads to men using sexual harassment and assault as a weapon to control women. As women rightfully take more power from men, this dynamic will slowly change.
That Donald is a racist has been obvious to anyone paying attention. His referring to Africa and Haiti as “shitholes” is merely the latest evidence.
“Waaah, I’m so discriminated against…” says lawsuit by conservative white male former Google engineers
A new lawsuit against Google by former employee and self-described “conservative white male” James Damore boils down to toddler’s tantrum: “I don’t wanna share my privileges with women and minorities.”
December saw 138 examples of horrible behavior, with the biggest increases coming in the categories of sexual harassment/assault, race baiting, splitting up immigrant families, attacking equal protection under the law, and demagoguery.
Donald’s personal moral failures are legion. So are the similar failures of others in his Administration. Over 25% of the 570 examples of appalling behavior I recorded between July 1 and November 30, 2017 exhibited at least one moral failure.
Which should drive Donald from office, the Russia investigation or the women who accuse him of sexual assault?
“Me too” is driving a wave of change across the country. If Donald’s accusers force him from office, that wave will turn into a tsunami.
