EtcetEraThread We've Reached Peak Nazi - Jonathan Pie
Reason User banned (3 days): Disingenuous arguing. Ignores Trump's repeated and documented calls for political violence.
I can right now, on this board, call Donald Trump a flaming pile of shit that I can't wait to see out of office so he can be prosecuted and hopefully jailed for all sorts of corrupt bullshit, without fear. His economic policies are aimed at strongarming for the sake of achieving free trade. He's certainly a capitalist with a tinge of protectionism. Fortunately our amazing constitution basically prevents a single party state, so we can forgo that aspect of fascism. He's not a supporter of political violence. The immigration rhetoric certainly has tinges of it, but the actual policies are way more complex to call one thing or another.I'm a market socialist with a degree in political economy (aka marxism), I certainly get the difference between Marx and Stalin. The poster I replied to made claims about fascism to equate nazism, which are similar but different, just like Marxism and Stalinism. That's why I picked Stalinism isntead of Trotskyism ;) I think the direct correlation between alt-right and Neo-Nazis is incredibly nuanced, due to the overuse and overlabeling of both terms. But until I see actual Fascist tenents being proposed as law, it's hard for me to label the guy as such. Trump is a giant piece of shit, but I really don't think he's a Nazi or even a Nazi supporter. I don't really think he's a Fascist either.
