I used to refer to it as 'creeping' fascism, but the only creep here is occupying the oval office. We are experiencing an administration embracing the worst qualities of fascism and, with the help of a corrupt AG, is launching us into autocracy.
The Nation magazine's Ken Klippenstein has been doing great work in covering this abuse of power, and is our guest today. Last week he wrote about how the DHS is going around the law to arrest journalists and legal protest observers in addition to their abduction of protesters off the streets of Portland. And his latest piece addresses the vilification of anti-fascists pushing back against Trump's authoritarian actions and proclivities. Scary times, indeed.
