I read somewhere that fascist violence doesn’t begin with uniformed military turning their guns on the people. Instead, it begins with violence by civilians against their neighbors, on behalf of the government. Back in 2017 I thought we might get past the first Trump term before we saw fascist violence on behalf of the Trump regime, and I was wrong.
Case in point, a pro-Trump pro-law-enforcement vigilante has murdered two people in Wisconsin. And right wing media are rallying to support the murderer.
