Fascist movement forming in U.S.

Massive cultural and ethnic changes are happening in America and the broader world. And despite baseless claims to the contrary, our global climate is in turmoil. If these changes scare you, that’s OK. How we choose to tackle these challenges will determine our future course.

Most Americans still have confidence in our constitutional republic. We want to strengthen and improve our government so that it better serves the needs of the majority while protecting the minority. Some of us - those who fear these cultural and ethnic shifts — have chosen a different path. We in the majority need to admit that this path is called fascism.

The Merriam-Webster definition of fascism: “A political … movement … that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.”

I challenge any supporter of our current dictator and his regime (the Republican Party) to explain how this is not a fascist movement.

Fascist states are neither nice nor prosperous places to live. Because I love my family, my country, and this beautiful world that we share, I choose our constitutional republic.
