The ‘Fascist’ Left in America

It’s hard to find a self-respecting liberal these days who doesn’t denounce Donald Trump as “a fascist.” if you Google “fascist” the first thing that pops on the screen is a photo of Mr. Trump.

Those in the media or the university professors or Democratic pundits who don’t call him a fascist resort to over-the-top sneering terms like “racist,” “repellent,” and even “Nazi.” After Mr. Trump’s call for a moratorium on Muslim immigration, here were a few of the choice words for those tolerant people on the left:

“He is running for president as a fascist demagogue.” – Martin O’Malley, Democratic presidential candidate.

“Trump literally wants to write racism into our law books” — Huma Abedin, aide to Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton.

“It is … entirely fair to call him a mendacious racist.” – Ben Smith, editor-in-chief, Buzzfeed.

“America’s modern Mussolini.” -Dana Milbank, The Washington Post.
