Pretty much 100% accurate.

Only 80% accurate. 20% off for not mentioning that conservatives scare too easily to be taken seriously when it comes to safety. Seems like they're demanding a nanny government tbf.

"The lefties are evil because they are fond of gov owned hospitals and such but plz won't the president protect me and stamp out all of those who aren't exactly like me. Brown is a scary color and gays make me feel funny. Hold me Mr. President. I'm cold and afraid."

More like it's a dog whistle to white supremacists over the the Charlottesville incident probably to gain favor with Trump.

I tend to brush off a lot of right wing nonsense by making fun of it, but it's actually kinda scary. I'm convinced the next 5-10 years will see a considerable rise in fascist tendencies.

I don't see a sea change coming any time soon. We're gonna keep going in this **** direction for several more years. Same with Danish politics, even though it's not as unhinged as American politics. A left wing Danish politician recently caused a lot of controversy and backfire from other Danish politicians by warning of rising fascist political leanings (and an increasingly fascist view of humans and human rights) in Danish politics, but I think he's right to sound the alarm.

As opposed to the last 5-10 years? ****

Thankfully the Nazis scared the **** out of the world so modern fascists have to be much more circumspect but yeah it's not so good right now.

Maybe I'm a pessimist, but I expect an escalation.

I'd like to think the Western world is at least somewhat cognizant of what fascism is and what it means that no matter how bad it gets there is still a fascist glass ceiling where the public will eventually go, "Whoa whoa whoa this is actually starting to sound like some Hitler **** let's take a step back", so there's only so far this can go. At least I'd like to think so. But then I thought Trump could never get elected.

Conservatives: Democracy is so fragile, guys, we really have to be careful that we're not doing things that can set us down the wrong path before it escalates to something uncontrollable.

Also conservatives: Come on guys, Trump doesn't really mean what he says and even if he did, our institutions are designed to keep him from turning our country into a fascist nightmare.

EDIT: Just for the sake of balance, the left contributed to Trump's power by letting Obama unreasonably expand the executive branch. Let's compromise and slaughter every single one of our politicians.
