Congress has to impeach Trump: the message that fascism will not be tolerated has to be sent

Posted on

I am pleased that Congress is continuing with its plans to impeach Trump.

We knew where Trump was heading. It was always towards totalitarian fascism. Search around early 2017 on Google and you will find plenty of articles predicting this. Zoe Williams, in the  Guardian,was just one to say so, based on the work of Hannah Arendt.

Arendt was also right about Trump. All that was required for his messaging to succeed was a mass of indifference to fascist communication.

That communication  happened. So too did the radicalisation of sufficient people to lead to his insurrection.

And the time has come for lines in the sand to be drawn; to say enough. Congress is doing that. It’s the right thing to do.
