Like Brexit campaigners, Trump borrowed heavily from the SJW movement. His central narrative was one of manufactured victimhood, he puts a lot of emphasis on the need to build safe spaces (his fanciful wall) to protect fragile Americans, and he fully embraces post truth politics.

I'm amazed so many people fell for it.

You betrayed the white working and middle classes who make up the backbone of our societies. You kicked us into the dirt, mocked us, scorned us, belittled us, demonised us and blamed us for all the worlds ills. And now we are biting back, first with Brexit, now with Trump. And you absolutely ****ing deserve it.
Stop feeling sorry for yourself, this is pathetic. I love how you think this is some big anti establishment move, as if Donald ****ing Trump is going to be the champion of the poor, or Rupert Murdoch's Brexit will bring your prosperity. You deserve everything you're going to get.

Trump is just a power hungry man. He thinks that running a country is the same way as running a business.

Let's face it, there are a lot of hidden racist people in the world - Brexit and Trump are the tip of the ice burg as people are now not afraid to voice their opinions. If the most powerful man in America is racist, so can they.

Yes I do :indiff: Are you telling me the US isn't becoming more nationalistic and authoritarian? The Republican nominee just won the election, and the republicans are far more authoritarian than the democrats... Just look at their views on LGBTs and abortions.

First Brexit, and now Amerexit. I think we can safely say that the average working class white is vehemently against the established elite.

While I understand that sentiment to a certain degree, it does not mean that the alternative MAD option is a better option. It could very well make things 100 times worse for them.

She does, but I'm not sure you do.

Here's the meaning for you, Hun:

fascism ˈfaʃɪz(ə)m/ noun an authoritarian and nationalistic right-wing system of government and social organization. synonyms: authoritarianism, totalitarianism, dictatorship, despotism, autocracy, absolute rule, Nazism, rightism, militarism; etc

Please show us evidence of his racism?
You're kidding me right?

He wants to build a wall to keep Mexicans out, he wants no other Muslims to enter the country, he has constantly campaigned that immigration is the reason why Americans can’t get jobs (as opposed to the fact that they are unqualified). It's the most blatant act of racism and stereotyping we have seen. No other country is taking such extreme measures.

How is it authoritarian/totalitarian/dictatorship when he won the vote fair and square :lol:

There isn't just one party. There isn't a totalitarian government. People chose him.

Well, it's basically just an anti establishment move. That is all it is.

This definition is way too simplistic.
Trump never said he would abolish democracy. There is no paramilitary group supporting Trump and he has no real party behind him.

Real Fascist party (Jobbik in Hungary):



Party members have uniforms and look like a military group, in ordered ranks. You don't have this with Trump. He is a populist demagogue, not a Fascist.

I agree with trump is nationalistic. But saying Republicans are authoritarian and Democrats arent is far to simply, and its simple narratives that the whole election was based on. What you are looking for is 'conservative'. Views on abortions are nothing to do with authoritarian views, its to do with ethics. The Republicans have a conservative view on ethics.
