Midnight Meme Of The Day!

>


-by Noah

Dear America (even you, Republikooks),

Do the points in this meme sound harrowingly familiar? Do they make you think of anyone in particular?

You can put a name to fascism in America now. Donald J. Trump has made fascism synonymous with his own name. We can't say that one of his former wives, Ivana, didn't warn us when she mentioned his bedtime reading of Hitler books. Have you had enough yet?

I don't need to go through each item on the list. They all describe the current republican form of dream government. I'll just point out one of Trump's most recent expressions of Republican fascist desires, a controlled media. You know how they always bitch about the so-called "liberal media." A couple of days ago, Herr Trump had this to say on the topic:
It's frankly disgusting that the press is able to write whatever it wants to write. People should look into it.
Trump then threatened to take NBC off the air by revoking NBC's license to broadcast. Too bad it doesn't work that way, moron! The networks are corporations. I thought you didn't like regulations for corporations. Obviously, you appointed an FCC head without you knowing the first thing about the FCC, but what else is new? You know nothing about the Constitution either.

By the way, Mr. Orange Fascist Lunatic, someone did look into the idea of a free press. His name was Thomas Jefferson. Like all presidents, he often got irked by the media, but he had a much more mature and sane response. Here's something he had to say about it. It seems very apropos right now.
...were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the later.
So, SeƱor Trumpanzee, it's obvious that Jefferson was a bigger man than you will ever be. You are being, as Bill Maher would say, a whiney little bitch. To that I might add a big Fuck You and I would remind you that Constitution Avenue is lined with many lamp posts.

Great meme although very depressing. It lays out rather succinctly what we are facing aa country.

"They all describe the current republican form of dream government"

With the possible exception of the media thing, it also perfectly describes the form of dream government that the democraps have been affirming for the past 35 years.

Tribalism much, Noah?

Memes are what the Internet was made for, aeh? A hoary tradition that must be met:
Fascism Creeps.

It sneaks in the backdoor.

TTB, it didn't have to sneak in. We elected it in 1968 and have affirmed it every 2 years since.

At this point, nobody of age has known anything different. Wouldn't know what to do with an altruistic/socialist government if one accidentally bit them on the balls.
