Don Veto Trumpleone has said, in not-so veiled threats, that efforts to impeach or un-elect him will be met with right wing violence. These "get-tough" warning are consistent with his history of promoting violence against his political enemies and economic adversaries. Trump and his backers have shaped their 2020 campaign to vilify the S-word (socialism) when it comes to the Democrats. They promote the false and fascist notion that socialism is taking over the Democratic Party. Realistically, Bernie and AOC are the only ones in the House's 435 members to identify as a socialist. 57% of the Democratic Party's voters prefer socialism to capitalism. But, DNC leadership hates the S-word and does nothing to promote it.
The MSM and DNC smear progressive Democrats' calls for decent policies like Medicare for All and the Green New Deal. Any threat from the left is nothing compared to the assault weapon-wielding right-wing militias and other armed and brutish white-nationalists who thrill to Trump. Bernie and AOC don't call for workers to seize control of the means of production, distribution, communication, and investment. They don't advocate the dismantlement of the Pentagon System or the nationalization of the leading financial institutions.
When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross. Yet, when the MSM discusses Trump's "get tough" statement on CNN the word "Fascist" never comes up instead we hear "the unhinged ramblings of a big dummy drunk on power" or "authoritarian and dangerous" or "mild and reasonable".
52% of Americans who are or lean Republican would support postponing the 2020 election to ensure that only eligible citizens could vote if it was proposed by President Trump. Believe the autocrat and worry.
