MAKING AMERICA HATE AGAIN

NEW UPDATED VERSION PUBLISHED MARCH 2018…

The first version of this book, published weeks before the 2016 presidential election covered how the Trump campaign mirrored the rhetoric of fascist campaigns in Italy and Germany. In that version published prior to the election I differed with the majority of pundits who predicted Trump would be defeated, and more accurately perceived and explained the situation and why it occurred.

This updated version adds to the original version an examination of the first 400 days of the Trump presidency and examines the resistance as well.

It is available at http://www.amazon.com/dp/1985001136

What the book is about:

Some seventy years after the defeat of fascism in Europe, the United States elected Donald Trump. As president Trump has ordered the deportation of millions of immigrants, attacked freedom of the press and stated that those who marched along side Neo-nazi’s and white supremacist rally were “fine young men”.

How is it possible that the nation that responded to fascism in World War Two by proclaiming “we have nothing to fear, but fear itself” could give rise to this?

This well documented text examines historic similarities between Trump and earlier anti-democratic movements, explores why so much of the electorate voted for him despite his hateful rhetoric, looks at Trumps actions since taking office, contemplates what a Trump presidency could mean for the future and explores the resistance to the Trump agenda.

I invite you leave a comment or question relevant to a discussion of the book below:

Republicans denounce Palin as irrelevant following anti-immigration rant

On ABC’s “This Week” several Republicans commented on Palins’ statement that the unsecured border crisis was  the last straw, and that it’s now time for impeachment.

But the Republicans interviewed all seemed dismissive of Palin and seemed determined disassociate the GOP from their former Vice Presidential candidate.

Ana Navarro, a GOP strategist pointed out that the Central American children were not sneaking across the border as Palin implied, but were instead seeking out border patrol agents and turning themselves in. A statement that exposed Palin’s claim that an “unsecured border” as the source of the current crisis was false with regard to most of the Central American children arriving in the U.S.

Navarros’ comment followed a segment on the same program by House Judiciary Chairman Robert Goodlatte (R. Virginia). Goodlatte, a conservative Republican, ridiculed Palin’s call for impeachment saying impeachment was not being considered because Obama had committed no criminal act that could justify impeachment.

Even Bill Kristol, whose conservative publication “The Weekly Standard,” had once run a glowing profile of Palin to bolster her reputation as a Vice Presidential candidate during the 2008 election campaign, stated that “no responsible Republican official has called for impeachment,” agreeing, in essence, that the Democrats would welcome an effort to impeach because it would be likely to enhance prospects for Democratic candidates in the 2014 congressional races.

Republican strategist Ana Navarro best summed up the mood of Republicans toward Palin saying “Nobody of responsibility, nobody in leadership, nobody of relevance has
talked about impeachment.”

With Palin now declared irrelevant by members of her own party the only question that remains is whether or not tea party types still have enough clout to force GOP to impeach. My guess is they do not.
