    I am not an expert, but sh*t even I can see the parallels. I also heard that Bunker Baby wears a diaper but nobody wants to change the Sh*tty thing.

  3. We have to remain in the streets, going to a general strike when trump steals the election.

    • Paldeus Jaco | June 4, 2020 at 8:51 PM | Reply

      By the way. Just like the outrage and cries over that black man being murdered by those that are suppose to be better than that…Trump has lost his re-election with that cringe worthy photo-op at the church. I guess that saying will always be true, give em enough rope to hang himself.

    • Michele Kett | June 4, 2020 at 10:04 PM | Reply

      He won’t if you get out and vote.

    • Erika Johnson | June 4, 2020 at 10:09 PM | Reply

      Did the CIA say there were WMDs
      In Iraq ?

    • There is 1 protest that is
      1 Billion times more important than all the rest Combined.
      It happens in NOVEMBER 👍
      NOT JUST IN 2020.
      But every 2 yrs , locale & other elections happen & if your not there , YOU GET NO SAY .
      VOTE BIDEN !
      VOTE ALWAYS 💪 !
      This how we show our strength & defeat those who hate & would destroy our chance for DEMOCRACY !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • @Lead Gen Magic; he has to, he cannot afford to be exposed.

  4. I smell the stench of Steven Miller allover this.

  5. “When fascism comes to America, IT will be wrapped in a flag and carrying a Bible.”  You’ve probably heard some variation on this quote: “When fascism comes to America, it will come wrapped in the flag and waving a cross,” possibly attributed to Sinclair Lewis or Huey Long. There’s no evidence that either men said it but the point is true nonetheless.
    America has been a Fascist state for many years.
    American fascism was always directed at the 3rd world though.
    We murdered 20-30 million people in various conflicts both directly and indirectly since the end of WW2.
    We toppled 26 governments and attempted 40 more regime changes.(Most of which were democratically elected)
    And we currently support 70% of the planets dictatorships.
    Before WW2 we killed thousands of people in central America in the Banana Wars. Wars fought so that our food companies could dominate the region. 
    It was foolish to believe that our fascism wouldn’t turn inward on our own people someday.
    Especially as our American empire collapses and America becomes a joke and untrustworthy ally.

    • Unfortunately you got it right!!

    • Steve Silva | June 4, 2020 at 4:19 PM | Reply

      Nothing like the loyalty of a true American.

    • @Steve Silva Hahaha, that’s funny. Anyone who is willing to admit his country’s lumps as well as its victories is a true American and a good thinking citizen. America is not without fault. Someone who chastises another for a point of view that does not glorify the country, well, THAT patriotism is questionable.

      Here’s the chance to prove that the Constitution is a valid document and that you will not allow a Facist to take away your country. This the time, predicted by the Hindu and Mayan in their messages. Stay strong, don’t yield, Trump cannot hide his ambition and will be destroyed by his own behaviour and those who support him.

  6. You are putting “hope” on the next administration while they are working on no more next administration ever.

    • Tattletale RED | June 4, 2020 at 9:34 PM | Reply

      Unfortunately you are Correct
      There will not be any more elections if trump can stop it
      But in a way, he is a blessing to Exposing all the Rats in the White House
      As Nothing is a Coincidence

      The problem is, He got Caught in his Own Rat Traps
      By eating too much of his own Cheze 😩

  7. I’m from the UK but I’m impressed with MSNBC – interesting perspectives

    “When the looting starts the shooting starts”. “Dominate”, the dictionary defines this word as “Supremacy”. These words comes straight out of a KKK meeting.

    “That was when they suspended the Constitution. They said it would be temporary. There wasn’t even any rioting in the streets. People stayed home at night, watching television, looking for some direction. There wasn’t even an enemy you could put your finger on.”

    ― Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale

    Everything is on the table for the GOP in the election: voter misinformation, voter intimidation, voter suppression, gerrymandering, purging voter rolls, trashing mail-in ballots from certain districts, etc etc etc.

    • The only way they can win is to cheat. Free and fair elections participated in by all rightfully eligible voters would throw the bums out. The majority of Americans despise fascism and fascists.

      As we listen to the Trump campaign over the next 5 months I think we’ll (continue) to see classic nazi propaganda techniques in use between 1930 and 1945

      + Propaganda should appeal to the heart, not the intellect.
      + It should be understandable by the least educated members of society.
      + It should contain one central message, to be repeated over and over.
      + Pictures and drawings, even crude sketches, speak louder than words, and the fewer words the better.
      + The views of the opposition should be denounced categorically, never entertained.
      + A big lie is more effective than several small ones. It should be repeated shamelessly. Even once exposed, it still carries a ‘force of credibility’, a lingering doubt that at least some aspect of it might still be true.
      + *Accuse your opponents of what you yourself are doing*
      + Focus should be kept on fighting a single enemy; all other enemies should be linked with a single great one.
      + Face-to-face meetings with the public are the most effective way to promote a political agenda.
      + A political campaign should be led by one charismatic figure with strong, inflexible convictions.

      Poll marshals, sending letters asking for proof of residency (posting it to a bogus address) criminal who don’t pay their fines can’t vote, it goes on and on by the Republicans

    • + Establish a ministry to publicize the government’s aims and ideals and popularize its programs and the reasons for them. It should disseminate “enlightened expert propaganda… to focus the public mind on crucial points of policy, and regiment a vast, heterogeneous mass of voters to clear understanding and intelligent action.”
      + Dominate the communications media to marginalize any opposing view.
      + Enlist celebrities, authorities, and trusted group leaders, who control the opinions of their followers.
      + Actively create circumstances that engage the public by dramatizing issues, personalities, and events, sometimes by highlighting a particularly compelling detail.
      + Psychological insights, especially Freud’s, should be integrated into any propaganda campaign.
      BlackSquare50+ People will always need food and shelter, crave entertainment and community, be influenced by fashion and style, and respond to strong leadership, and will always be receptive to propaganda appealing to these basic interests.

      I believe that this episode of control over you will bring everyone who values the Constitution and America out to vote. Trump is unable to hide his ambition and is too self-centred to understand the effect of his behaviour on the people. He, like Caligula is brining about the fall of the old American political control, for one that obeys the Constitution and returns you to Democracy.

  11. Johnny Walters | June 4, 2020 at 2:03 PM | Reply

    Trump actually called a US Constitutional Clause – “YOUR PHONY EMOLUMENTS CLAUSE”, & he is the President???? SMH.

  12. The moment Brown children were ripped from their parents and jailed in cages EVERYONE knew all they needed to know about this man’s racism and the cruelty and evil he is capable of.

    Seeing faceless troops on the steps where MLK delivered his ‘I Have a Dream’ speech was a metaphor for Trump’s America. If you think ‘it can’t happen here’ wake up – it can.

    Why hasn’t Congress intervened 🤨in Trumps power play display of constitutional abuse 🤨

    Hes just one afraid old man…He knows what he is and now his scared stiff

    • A scared, cornered demagogue with millions of armed followers and control of the police and military, and courts…

      Sure, piece of cake.


  16. I hope we aren’t picking on poor old Bunkerbaby!!!

    Well – he is getting advice from a dictator called Putin: “send in the military, Donald, control your people with force – this is how I do it and it works!”

    “What is next in a Fasicist Grab?” Well, King Trump’s Agenda is at the point of using the Military and Police against the People. Checkmark. And, Barr is aspiring to being the Hermann Goring of the New Reich.

  19. Donovan Hughes | June 4, 2020 at 6:02 PM | Reply

    Its extremely likely that Republicans will steal the election

    • YES ! I believe the coup is in place, especially since Barr reminded us that Winners write history, as he laughed in the face of America.

    The constitution?😝
    This is about preservation of racism and sexism.
