Andy Borowitz, New Yorker: Donald J. Trump will skip the 2024 campaign and go straight to claiming that he won, the former reality-show host has confirmed.

With liberal humor like this, it is no wonder Greg Gutfeld has the highest rated late night show or that SNL ratings are down about 50% year over year.

Liberals used to understand comedy, now you can't even meme. It is probably due to your adoption of authoritarianism. Now, your comedy is the same as the former East Germany.

One of the problems American Fascists have is a whole hell of a lot of people laugh at them. They want what they can never have. You know what it is. Aretha Franklin sang about it. MAGAnutz deeply crave it, although it will forever elude them. Instead, risible looms that they are, they get mocked. Sad!

from Wikipedia:
Fascism (/f ... z'm/) is a form of far-right, authoritarian ultranationalism characterized by (1) dictatorial power, (2) forcible suppression of opposition, and (3)strong regimentation of society and of the economy, which came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe.

On #1, I don't think anyone on the right supports that. If anything, we are trying to take back power from the government by limiting Biden's ability to rule by executive order. I would characterize a forced medical procedure, forcing landlords to house people for free, and shutting down businesses they don't like as distinctly Leftist policies and 100% dictatorial.

On #2, this exactly describes what the Left tried to do with Trump using FB, Twitter, and phony impeachments to try to stop him from running again. I would also throw in the perversion of the justice department with the fake Trump-Russia collusion nonsense.

On #3, this again is very much a Leftist thing. The Left is constantly trying to reshape the society and language. Same goes with the economy with them trying to shut down all the business that they don't like - such as mom and pop shops in favor of Amazon and CostCo.

I think you need a new term - because Fascist is clearly not correct. Fascism applied very well to the Progressive Left, but not whatsoever to the Right or Trump Supporters.

I think for the Left, I would define you are Neo-Fascist with the one difference being that you are not nationalistic. In fact, you hate the US as country or ideal and worship foreigners. So, you are not exactly Hitler-ish in your beliefs, but it is pretty damn close.

In 2016, I and a few lonely voices were telling people that a fascist Trump would try a fascist coup to stay in power. No psychic abilities were needed to get that one right. A coup was in the nature of the beast. What history heavily suggested would happen.

The coup didn't quite come off so now we are at the fascist stage of killing people to make sure the next one does. If history remains a guide they have already made lists. SKEPTICAL has his list.

Sure, I'd have to be fascist also after identifying you as one. It's one of your little fascist tricks. I think that day before last I was communist. But the actual words don't matter. What matters is trying to obscure what you are.

We look at your behavior to know you, which has been nihilistic in extreme. I've been reading your posts and those of people like you for a long time; and reading about you in other media and watching you on TV. I can't tell what you believe in. Except that you want to hurt your enemies.

I recall a time, and not that long ago, when I was SKEPTICAL of the notion of Republican voter suppression. What native-born American would actually want to keep me from voting?

But it all proved to be real. And so now suppression didn't quite work and you fascists have gone onto outright vote cancellation.

You fascists will start killing people in numbers when, after the next election is REALLY rigged, an outraged majority refuses to accept a Trump or DeSantis.

You fascists, as fascists do, don't believe in the right or the ability of others to also have their way.

You forget how the Left worshipped Obama? The difference is that Trumpers would prefer we scale back the government by 75% so the power of a president is severely limited. You, and the rest of the Progressives, want the opposite.

"What do you think 1/6"

It was an ineffective riot - no different than the hundreds that occurred in 2020 by Antifa or BLM - the only difference was the location.

"and the voting suppression"

What voter suppression? You want to force people to have a vaccine passport to buy groceries yet you don't want to have someone show an ID to vote. It is nonsensical.

Hey Skeptical, this is the last time I'll address your Fascist ass.

You are a fat freaking Fascist and there's nothing you are going to post that will change that except by typing, "I'm sorry for being a Fascist, I am going to rethink how I view myself in comparison to others and make some moral changes."

Stop being a fat freaking Fascist you Fascist.

I don't remember anyone casting a statue of Obama in gold for attendees to a political conference to worship. I don't remember anyone driving around with a dozen or so Obama flags on their car. I don't remember any Obama boat parades or people with homes covered in Obama signs and flags.

Remember all the televised cabinet meetings where the Obama cabinet took turns giving him a public tongue bath? Me neither.

The Terrorist L'Orange's administration kicked off 2017 by literally sending Spicy out to blatantly lie to the public about the size of the inauguration to satiate his ego.

Trumpism is a death cult.

How the heck do right wingers keep up with the daily outrage? Is there like an advent calendar for outrage they use? I know they get confused often as Bellringer foolishly brings up 1619 which is a two month old outrage and CRT which is a waning outrage.

Hannah Jones was forced to admit that her 1619 wasn't really a historical account - it was left-wing advocacy. When called out she and the NYT stealth edited out some of the most egregious stuff and when subjected to calm criticisms she played the race card.

But hey, Yasir Arafat won the Nobel Peace Prize so that proves he was really a peace-loving individual.

The only way this makes sense is if slavery is such an existential part of America, that if you hate slavery it means you hate America.

Is that what you're arguing, BellRinger? To hate America's history of slavery and racial oppression, is to hate America itself.
