    Christian Fascism

    In 2015, conservative evangelical Christian Franklin Graham spoke out largely against an X-Men comic. His complaint: The comic revealed the mutant character, Ice-Man was gay, and he had previously kept his homosexuality in the closet out of fear he'd ruin his reputation. Graham argued the...

    The one where Trump doesn't understand the 1st Amendment

    https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/918112884630093825 Can't imagine why anyone would think the orange goon is a fascist. Good luck convincing the Supreme Court that there's an "I say it's fake news" provision in the First Amendment.

    Spanish Civil War: A Primer On Fascism

    I think if we all did a microhistory of the Spanish Civil War, 1936 to 1939, we would have a far better framework for analyzing issues today. Why? The whole 20th century's conflict history quickly becomes unwieldy, if you have no background in it. "The Guns of August", about WWI, is a BIG...

    Got Fascism?

    With bigotry and hatred on the rise in the United States and politicians like Donald Trump giving everyone the nightmares of an American Hitler and Nazi Party, revisiting history offers us kernels of wisdom in resisting such extremism. In April 1940, the Nazis invaded Norway and occupied the...

    Mussolini-Style Corporatism, aka Fascism, on the Rise in the US

    One of the distressing things about politics in the US is the way words have either been stripped of their meaning or become so contested as to undermine the ability to communicate and analyze. It’s hard to get to a conversation when you and your interlocutors don’t have the same understanding...
