Letter: Is Half Our Country Really Fascist? | Letters
According to our current president, all of us who did not vote for him in the 2020 elections are “semi-fascists”. Other than voting for Trump, what else are we so guilty of that Biden would call us fascists? And what exactly is a fascist?
Fascism is a form of government that keeps supreme power over everyone under its iron fist. It is led by a powerful leader who uses the military and state agencies to ensure there is no political opposition. Those who resist are arrested and often not heard from again. This powerful leader also insists on and obtains full cooperation from the media; in fact, it’s as if he actually owns them. Freedom of religion and speech is not allowed, nor are their citizens allowed to assemble. There are always very severe repercussions for anyone who violates these and all other practices.
It is obvious that fascist regimes are the opposite of democratic republics which uphold individual rights, freedom of speech, freedom of religion and the freedom to assemble and have honest elections. The best example of fascism is Germany under Hitler and Italy under Mussolini. According to World 101 (Historical Background), “fascist leaders usually claim to support everyone, but in reality their regimes often align themselves with powerful business interests.” Hey! Which of our two national parties does this look like?

It seems that we cannot hold President Biden responsible for this false and hurtful characterization. As we all know, he has ever more advanced symptoms of senility. At 10:00 a.m., he couldn’t remember what he had had for breakfast. But I harbor contempt for those perverted, willful idiots who lurk in the dark and call 70 million Americans fascists just because we exercised our right to vote for someone they can’t help but fear and hate.
November 2022 and 2024 can’t come soon enough! In the meantime, we must continue to fight these radical extremists behind the scenes as they attempt to destroy our Constitution and our great country.
