The Authoritarian Playbook

Great video.  A must view.

Points out precisely the danger we are in. Don’t remain in blissful ignorance, people. He has the ignorant in his pocket.  They are a minority in our country.  They believe his every word, and they watch FOX NEWS AND FRIENDS. This channel is a spokesperson and “state-sponsored” news media that spews distortion of the truth or makes up its own “truth.”  They shout out their message to make sure they are heard.  They do not speak quietly.  Their purpose is to preach the views of the person occupying the White House.

If truth is spoken, quiet voices are all that is needed for emphasis.  All the authoritarians and dictators in the world have used shouting to get their message across.  They shout with anger and bully their listeners to come over and embrace their views and dictates.

Military force is usually used.  Did you know that the person living in the White House, has instructed that surplus military weaponry be distributed to the state and local police departments?  This includes vehicles and other equipment.

Don’t be mistaken, folks, tRump is slowly, but surely decimating our democracy and using divisive methods, creating a vacuum which will allow him and his cohorts to swoop in and take over our country.  Rule of law and rights guaranteed by our Constitution have  been distorted and/or dismissed, to please the ultra-right and a certain religious minority.

Don’t let him win. Keep up the #resistance. Keep calling the elected officials who are not representing us; they are representing their own interests and making backroom deals for their monetary benefit – not ours.

The opinions stated above are my own.
