"Ours is the age of the strongman, of heads of state who destroy democracy use masculinity as a tool of political legitimacy, and promise law and order rule – and then legitimize lawless behavior by financial, sexual, and other predators." - Strongmen Mussolini To The Present by Ruth Ben-Ghiat

Democracy dies when violence kills the rule of law.

Violence and demonization of immigrants

Ben-Ghiat makes a convincing argument for including Trump when laying out the specifics of his corruption... It is in fact aberrant to see a son-in-law enriching himself at taxpayer expense, or to watch the Trump Organization’s coffers fill, golf outing by golf outing, with the aid of the Secret Service.

As Ben-Ghiat shows, such self-enrichment is more in line with a Gaddafi or a Mussolini than a transparent or accountable democratic leader. Trump’s violence, too, is laid out chillingly: “In the tradition of the fascists, Trump uses his rallies to train his followers to see violence in a positive light,” she writes of his frequent exhortations to violence and demonization of immigrants at these spectacles." - Washington Post

Trump incites violence like other Strongmen explains Ruth Ben-Ghiat.

What Putin and Trump have in common

From Mussolini to Putin, authoritarian demagogues of the past century have followed a blueprint that has been unnervingly replicated by Trump as President of the United States. These so-called "strongmen" use masculinity as a symbol of strength, emphasize "law and order" while simultaneously legitimizing lawbreaking, and prioritize self-interest over the public good. They systematically weaken critical institutions and erode political norms, employ propaganda, corruption and violence to achieve their goals and maintain control, and ultimately evade a peaceful transfer of power. - Texas Public Radio

TakeAway: Protect democracy and the rule of law. Vote for Democrats.
