Mehdi Hasan: “For a lot of people, calling Donald Trump a ‘fascist’ was just ad hominem, a lazy political insult. It was the liberal who cried wolf. And yet, look what happened the moment he took office.”

Mehdi Hasan: It’s Time We Use The F-Word: Fascism | All In | MSNBC


  1. Said he won’t accept the election results unless he wins.
    Using law enforcement as his personal secret police.
    Installed cronies to get the people who committed crimes on his behalf out of jail.
    Blasting out propaganda as state-sponsored news.

    Congratulations America! You’ve unlocked the in-game Fascism Achievement.

    1. Ali DW LOL, I’m not going to because it would just roll off of you. Look it up if you want I really don’t care.

    2. @T. R. Campbell ah, so you don’t have any evidence then. I see. Typical of your cult. Make baseless claims and refuse to provide evidence.

    1. Absolutely. And people who think Trump will peacefully transfer power should have their heads checked.

    1. Trump supporters are in their comment sections talking about harming any person of color they see

    2. @Arzell Rodgers Yes, the Stupido Americano is not Fake News either. I admit I did not realize it was still about the confederacy omg.

  2. Trump, his collaborators and other minions should start up their legal defense or make escape plans. There will be trials. There will be recalls. There will be sentences. There will be Justice.
    There will be dancing in the streets.

  3. People scream they don’t want socialism!!!!welcome to fascism. No doubt about it trump is a fascist.

    1. No doubt about it Democrats are nothing but Racists!! There favorite organization is the klu Klux Klan they formed!

    2. @Vincent Graham go to a KKK rally and call them Democrats. I dare you.
      Stop pretending that the platform switch never happened

    3. @Vincent Graham Hey Vincent, the GREAT SWITCH happened about a hundred y ears ago. Whereya been?

  4. Really, these Americans must give credit to Hong Kong police for their effective control of Hong Kong protesters, Hong Kong had better sense of freedom than USA which is becoming more facist and racist ..

    1. I don’t know if I whollly agree with that but I entirely agree the I S should stop lecturing others on national security and human rights. Fix their own problems and shut up.

  5. Send Doctors, Nurses and all that is needed to Florida, Texas , the American South,! Where is the Trump response “person, man,women…..


  6. I’ve been saying the “F” word for the last 3.5 years. This guy is good. Hope he gets a job on MSNBC

    1. Mehdi Hasan is a celebrated journalist who currently works for the Intercept. Amazing interviewer. He is waaaay too good for MSNBC. They would never hire him because he criticizes neoliberalism constantly.

  7. It’s only a matter of time that feds will use bullets on protesters! Moscow’s Mitch flooded the courts w judges, that pledged loyalty to trump….might be the beginning of the end of democracy?

  8. Trump is not coming up with this himself it is his advisers that are working behind him they are the real criminals

    1. And, where do you think Trump’s advisors came up with their ideas . . .? Those not so “little green men” in Portland, Chicago and elsewhere are all part of Putin’s playbook.

    1. Welcome to dictatorship. You could blame the racism in America who voted for him. You have not seen anything yet.

  9. These are the first steps to militarization of the whole country. Absolutely no regard for an constitution.

  10. Fascism is alive, well and thriving in the USA. It’s no longer hyperbole to refer to it as such.

  11. If only people could remember the lessons of the past, history wouldn’t have to keep repeating itself.
    In1933, A.H. became the Chancellor of Germany. Afterwards, he and his Na.zi party immediately assumed dictatorial powers over the German people. That very same year, the Na.zis opened their first concentration camp. In a time span of less than five years, Germany went from a democracy, to a dictatorship. That’s how fast it can happen. And if anyone thinks that it can’t happen here, then you are sadly mistaken. If you could travel back in time to Germany in 1933, and ask the German people what they thought of Adolf at that time, they would have sounded very similar to Trump cultists today.  “A.H. is the chosen one. Only he knows what’s best for Germany. He will make Germany great again!!!!”  They didn’t realize how tragically wrong they were, until after Germany laid in ruins, and more 60 than million lives had been lost. All because they traded in their democracy for a dictator.

    “If you can get people to believe in absurdities, then you can get them to commit atrocities.”
    — Voltaire

    “The best political weapon is the weapon of terror. Cruelty commands respect. Men may hate us. But, we don’t ask for their love; only for their fear.”

    At the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, Benjamin Franklin was asked a question as he left Independence Hall on the final day of deliberation. In the notes of Dr. James McHenry, one of Maryland’s delegates to the Convention, a lady asked Dr. Franklin: “Well Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?”

    Benjamin Franklin replied: “A republic….if you can keep it.”

    So…will we keep are constitutional republic, or will we lose it, and see it replaced with a monarchy? Will we still have a democracy, or will we be ruled by a tyrant without boundaries?  These are the questions that will be on the ballot box in 2020. Because Trump and Republicans are telling us that we can no longer keep it. They are basically giving the Constitution, and the American people the middle finger. It is my sincere hope, that we as a people, return that middle finger to them on election day 2020. 💙

    “If there is one fact we really can prove, from the history that we really do know, it is that despotism can be a development, often a late development and very often indeed the end of societies that have been highly democratic. A despotism may almost be defined as a tired democracy. As fatigue falls on a community, the citizens are less inclined for that eternal vigilance which has truly been called the price of liberty; and they prefer to arm only one single sentinel to watch the city while they sleep.” 
    ― G.K. Chesterton, The Everlasting Man

    “The actions of government, we are told, bear down only on imprudent souls who provoke them. The man who resigns himself and keeps silent is always safe. Reassured by this worthless and specious argument, we do not protest against the oppressors. Instead we find fault with the victims. Nobody knows how to be brave even prudentially. Everyone stays silent, keeping his head low in the self-deceiving hope of disarming the powers that be by his silence. People give despotism free access, flattering themselves they will be treated with consideration. Eyes to the ground, each person walks in silence the narrow path leading him safely to the tomb.” 
    ― Benjamin Constant, Principles of Politics Applicable to All Governments

    This election is a choice between Trump/tyranny, or America.
    Make a decision…

  12. Finally call it like it is Fascist is exactly what AMERICA is now. We fought the second world ear against this

  13. “They don’t wanna ask.”
    Trump sounds like he needs a cognitive test again. Or a shot of lysol.
