Fascism in the US

With freedom in the US now a thing of the past and an unchecked executive along with the propaganda depts running full steam, I have been wondering a lot lately when our democracy will take the last step over the edge into fascism. We've teetered on the brink many times in the past 100 yrs, but I don't know if things have been this well aligned before. Anyway, here are a few sights to scare the shit outta any real freedom loving American.

The fourteen points of fascism. Links galore and chilling to say the least.

A rational revolution looks the rise of nationalism and racial violence post WWI through WWII.

Finally from common dreams:

Vice President Wallace's answer to those questions was published in The New York Times on April 9, 1944, at the height of the war against the Axis powers of Germany and Japan.

"The really dangerous American fascists," Wallace wrote, "are not those who are hooked up directly or indirectly with the Axis. The FBI has its finger on those. The dangerous American fascist is the man who wants to do in the United States in an American way what Hitler did in Germany in a Prussian way. The American fascist would prefer not to use violence. His method is to poison the channels of public information. With a fascist the problem is never how best to present the truth to the public but how best to use the news to deceive the public into giving the fascist and his group more money or more power."
