Trump’s Fasism vs Populism

Lately, I’ve been hearing some Trump supports claim that Trump is not “Fascist”, but is rather a “Populist”. This is because the word  Fascist has negative connotations that bring to mind such terrible dictators as Mussolini and even Hitler.  Populist brings forth such popular and good leaders as Franklin Roosevelt.

However, fascists are sometimes also populists. It is not a binary, one or the other, black or white, one or zero kind of choice. Hither and Mussolini were both populists, at least in their rhetoric. Both addressed large groups of loud screaming fans who thought their hero was sent to save their nations, or at least save them.  Their appeal was more of a pseudo-populism rather than a real-populism in that their words did not match their deeds.

So too is Trump a blend of fascist as well as pseudo-populism. Trump has a history of going out and saying whatever he thinks will get the crowd’s attention, as though this were just a scene in an unreality TV Show.

To be a both a fascist a populist, or pseudo-populist, is not mutually exclusive.

There’s a REASON Trump is “Fact Checked” more often than Hillary

The trump campaign staff is out complaining that Trump was “fact checked more” than Hillary in the first debate, as though he was being unfairly picked upon.

However, there’s a reason Trump was fact checked more; he lied more.
