Paranoid Fascists

It’s pretty clear that a subset of Trump supporters have crossed over to paranoid fascism–though is there any other kind? (boldface mine):

Anger and hostility were the most overwhelming sentiments at a Trump rally in Cincinnati last week, a deep sense of frustration, an us-versus-them mentality, and a belief that they are part of an unstoppable and underestimated movement….

And if Trump doesn’t win, some are even openly talking about violent rebellion and assassination, as fantastical and unhinged as that may seem.

If she’s in office, I hope we can start a coup. She should be in prison or shot. That’s how I feel about it,” Dan Bowman, a 50-year-old contractor, said of Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee. “We’re going to have a revolution and take them out of office if that’s what it takes. There’s going to be a lot of bloodshed. But that’s what it’s going to take. . . . I would do whatever I can for my country.”

…“Trump said to watch you precincts. I’m going to go, for sure,” said Steve Webb, a 61-year-old carpenter from Fairfield, Ohio.

“I’ll look for . . . well, it’s called racial profiling. Mexicans. Syrians. People who can’t speak American,” he said. “I’m going to go right up behind them. I’ll do everything legally. I want to see if they are accountable. I’m not going to do anything illegal. I’m going to make them a little bit nervous.” [actually, voter intimidation is illegal]

…Joe Cecil, a 39-year-old restaurant manager, said he has never voted before but is newly inspired by Trump.

“If people are offended by the sexual stuff, what do they think is going to happen when Muslims come here, implement Sharia law, and start raping our women?” he asks….

“This is my prediction: Trump is going to win the popular vote by a landslide, and the Electoral College will elect Hillary, because of all the corruption,” he said. “Maybe it’ll all work and restore my faith in humanity. But I doubt it.”

How this is not a mass communicable psychotic break escapes me.

I blame campus leftists*. Or something.

*Not really.

    The fear of women being raped by mohammedans is justified, just look op Rotherham child sexual abuse and go from there.

  2. Ah. Yes. Those evil dark men will come and shove their evil dirty brutish defiling selves onto our pure white women.

    Sexism, racism and antisemitism all are intertwined in a fear/hate deathgrip, centered around protecting women from being raped by (the wrong kind of) people/evil heathens. Because it’s okay if a rich elite white grandfather gropes white women, but darkies? HEAVENS NO!

    You resort to a straw man argument and do not respond to the facts. Typical.
