You don’t have to be a history professor to see that the world is headed down a path of fascism. Brexit and the election of Donald Trump have shocked the world, and sent political scholars into a state of panic, as they know too well where this leads historically. Progressives have sadly lost a lot of ground in 2016, and an examination of the political landscape reveals that things aren’t likely to get any better in 2017. Below is a list of indicators that suggest that the West is heading down a dark path towards textbook fascism and right-wing extremism.

  1. Increasing popularity of far right, populist political candidates such as Donald Trump, Nigel Farage, Marine Le Pen and Geert Wilders
  2. Increasing Islamaphobia throughout Europe and North America
  3. Increasing anti globalization sentiment and opposition to international governing institutions such as the UN and EU
  4. Growing opposition to common-sense free trade deals such as the TPP and TTIP
  5. Increasing protectionism, and favoritism of national companies
  6. Increasingly conservative views on immigration and a desire to turn down desperate refugees
  7. Growing admiration within the West for Putin’s fascist regime
  8. Increasing militarism and support for the second amendment
  9. An increasingly callus disregard for political correctness
  10. Increasingly blunt and bigoted views on race and gender

Together, these indicators paint a bleak picture for the future of the West, and suggest that we as progressives have a serious fight on our hands. And as the West crumbles under the weight of extremist demagogues, bigotry and nationalism, the looming threat of Russia is only growing. It seems likely that in order to regain lost ground and restore progressivism, we are going to have to be more savvy than ever in the new year, going outside of politics and seeking more sophisticated and subversive methods of fighting our enemies. The future of the planet depends on our ability to fight this growing movement towards fascism, and I encourage every progressive reading this to search deep inside themselves and pray for the strength and courage to do what it takes, as without us the planet is surely doomed to centuries of darkness and despair.

When fascism comes to AmeriKKKa, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying “The Art of the Deal.”

I listened as you called my President a Muslim.
I listened as you called him and his family a pack of monkeys.
I listened as you said he wasn’t born here.
I watched as you blocked every single path to progress that you could.
I saw the pictures you made of him as Hitler.
I watched you shut down the government and hurt the entire nation, twice.
I watched you turn your backs on every opportunity to open a worthwhile dialog.
I watched you say that you would not even listen to any choice for Supreme Court no matter who the nominee was.
I listened as you openly said that you will oppose him at every turn.
I watched as you did just that.
I listened.
I watched.
I paid attention.
Now, I’m being called on to be tolerant.
To move forward.
To denounce protesters.
To “Get over it.”
To accept this…
I will not.
I will do my part to make sure, this great American mistake, becomes the embarrassing footnote of our history that it deserves to be.
I will do this as quickly as possible, every chance I get.
I will do my part to limit the damage that this man can do to my country.
I will watch his every move and point out every single mistake and misdeed in a loud and proud voice.
I will let you know in a loud voice every time this man backs away from a promise he made to you.
The people who voted for him. Yes you, the ones who sold their souls and prayed for him to win.
I will do this so that you never forget.
And you will hear me.
You will see it in my eyes when I look at you.
You will hear it in my voice when I talk to you.
You will know that I know who you are.
You will know that I know what you are.
Do not call for my tolerance. I’ve tolerated all I can.
Now it’s your turn to tolerate the ridicule.
Be aware, make no mistake about it, every single thing that goes wrong in our country from this day forward is now Trump’s fault just as much as you thought it was Obama’s.
I find it unreasonable for you to expect from me, what you were entirely unwilling to give.

This is a recurring problem here. Certain people think or suspect that Accredited Times is some kind of sarcasm, or speaking in modern language, troll sanctuary where cynical individuals entertain themselves by writing outrageous things and hoping that someone (either conservative or liberal) will fall for their linguistic exercises. I have no idea where this idea could come from and why we get such comments here.

I, for one, deeply resent ANY suspicion about my progressive credentials! I am sure that this is stance of all progressive commenters and article writers on this invaluable resource designed to fight racism, sexism, and oppression!

P.S. MDB – may be it is worth placing a disclaimer somewhere on these pages (in LARGE RED LETTERS so everyone knows it is true) so that some mentally disABLED readers finally understand that Accredited Times is not some kind of joke. I might write the disclaimer after I return from my visit to a more progressive area of the US.

I mean, how can anyone even think to joke about important and serious topics such as racism, sexism, etc.

Man accredited times writers memories are short. The far right and republican party did not support trump at all and were trying to do qnything they could to push him out.

Trump is a racist. Republicans are racist. Therefore, Republicans supported Trump, whether they admitted or not — just like they support David Duke.

Keep lying TrueDat. Republican electors en masse deserted and betrayed their constituents and voted for Trump on December 19, 2016

So thankful Obummer leaving office.

What a useless windbag, selling out our future by putting us at a mininum 8,000,000,000,000 more dollars in debt. Any country GDP would look better if you pumped additional printed money i to it each year onthe national credit card. Thanks for making us debt slaves Obummer.

How is this bad??? Most of that debt is held by American bankers. So it’s as if we owed debt to ourselves.

Do you know that runaway deficits were started by alt-right heroes Bush (added 5.8 tn to deficit) and Reagan? Or that information never enters your parents’ basement???

Black Lives Matter

This is such a great point. Reagan and Bush frittered away the money on useless foreign wars and military spending. Obama, in contrast, made INVESTMENTS in a free Syria and programs like the Lockheed F-35.

Exactly! While Bush spent our hard-earned money on frivolous wars and supporting his military-industrial complex buddies, Obama made community investments in Obamacare (I am sure TrueDat has Obamacare through his parents), Syria, Afghanistan, Guantanamo, and certain companies such as Lockheed-Martin

What a moron! Russia hasn’t printed trillions of rubles out of thin air, and guess what? Putin is Evil. This is confirmed by every accredited newspaper and news channel you care to mention. Syria doesn’t even have a Rothschild-franchise Central Bank, for Kali’s sake! And guess what? Assad is the second Hitler! Don’t you even read The Guardian???

I think this is a poor attempt at sarcasm by an Alt-right troll. Money printing is basically the only thing Putin did right. For example, they printed a trillion rubles in Dec 2015

MDB, you said to “pray for the strength and courage to do what it takes.” I think that you have mentioned Moloch or Molech a few times. Is there a prescribed way to pray to Molech, or can you pray to him the same as Christians pray to their god? (I wouldn’t want to pray the wrong way and make Molech mad.) My idea is that if one god can’t answer my prayer, I can try others till I finally find the right god who can do something.

Black Lives Matter

Sugarlock, I’m so glad you’ve made the decision to worship Molech. I don’t want to answer for MDB, so I’ll let him fill you in on the details, but Molech worship is an empowering experience. I find that it fits very well with my Islamic world view.

Maybe confused you and MDB, with regard to Molech-worship. Incidentally, I started hugging trees after one of your comments, and I sometimes hear them crying because of CO2, just like you said.

Black Lives Matter

You are now becoming more in tune with Mother Earth, just like the most enlightened progressives (Obama, Hillary, Al Sharpton, Al Gore, etc.). Here is a pretty standard Molech sacrifice ritual — my mentor George got me involved, and I’ve been hooked ever since:

This ceremony involves some of the most powerful and successful people in the United States. That’s how you know it works.

Why can’t we just pray directly to Obama? “Yes we can” is a guarantee that your prayer will be answered.

Black Lives Matter

Personally, I believe in a “holy trinity” — Allah, Molech, and Obama. So I try to pray to Obama every chance I get.

Its bad because the banks privatize profit and make losses public debts by various means. Havent you seen that or are you just unaware.

Its also bad because increasing the money supply increases inflation which is primarily a tax on the poor and middle class. Havent you seen that the bankers never get hurt its always ends up dumped on the middle class.

Imagine you re playing monopoly and everyone except one person has the same amount of money starting out, but the one person is a banker. With the help of the government this banker is able to create and borrow as much money as they want. Soon they are buying up everything and making people raise their prices (when reselling property).

TrueDat, It looks like you finally got your GED. Or did you copy and paste this from somebody else’s writing?

Black Lives Matter

Where did you get this anti-government/anti-banker nonsense? Are you seriously saying that bankers like Lloyd Blankfein are bad? Blankfein supported Obama. That means he is a progressive and is good. Most other bankers also supported Obama. That means they are also progressive and good. Stop reading conspiracy kook websites and stick to accredited news sources.

And wiki on Boko Haram an islamic group:

I would call boko haram an islamic terrorist group but its practically obvious a terrorist when you say islamic, at least thes days.

To understand muslims in world today, picture a large fire ant mound that has been kicked. The angry ants swarm and look for things to bite. The colony begins to spread out and populate by spreading and creating new mounds. Just like the way you try to exterminate the ants because they can hurt you are children with their bites, governments today look to “Treat” the problem of growing islamic ants.

Ortho can you help us out with some Muslim spray.
