It is my contention that what Trump, Cruz and others really represent at this juncture is the danger of a large, organized far-right party in the U.S. This would be something never before seen in this country. If one thinks about the hyperbolic anti-Muslim attacks by Trump, especially, what we are really seeing is Hitlerian language, now being put into policy proposals ("Ban all Muslims").
Better than forming a third party, Lucus advises, is for traditional Republican conservatives to work to directly oppose Trumpism in America. This is something they have been reluctant to do for fear of -- yes -- splitting the party.
Better than any of these solutions is for the media to stop pandering to Trumpism and all its diatribes. What the media is doing amounts to an assault on the American system of tolerance for all religions. This we simply cannot have.
In coming days I plan to concentrate and focus on how the media itself is promoting Trumpism and how the media can be opposed. Therein, I believe, will lie the best method of opposing nascent fascism in this great land.
