Take Authoritarians Seriously

Hitler set out what he was going to do in Mein Kampf, and yet he was dismissed as a crank. When someone of an anti-democratic, authoritarian temperament tells you they are going to do something outrageous, you take them seriously.

Look for a Reichstag Fire moment sooner or later. That will be the end of democracy and of our republic, handed over by naive idiots who whistled past the graveyard that was the promise to ban Muslims, to crush health care, to destabilize alliances, to threaten press freedoms, and to arrest or beat up protestors (that is certainly coming – hey, he’s only bee in office ten days, so four out of five ain’t bad!)

Take him seriously not literally“: And they think Liberals are naive . . .

The GOP owns this. They are democracides.
