Watch this five-minute video on our slide into fascism. You don’t think it could happen here? Or in Hungary? Or in Turkey? Or in Italy? Or in Germany? Each time, built around a strongman with a fanatical following?
Oh! And how about The Proud Boys? Whose leader — banned from Twitter — was last week “invited to speak at a popular Republican institution not despite his extremism but because of it. His invitation to the Metropolitan Republican Club [in New York], scholars of fascism said, shows Republicans’ increasing ease with what is essentially the militant, fascist wing of their party — an especially unnerving development, given Proud Boys’ penchant for violence. . . .” (Violence did in fact ensue.)
“. . . The next day Proud Boys in Portland, Oregon, joined with another violent far-right gang, Patriot Prayer, to assault leftist protesters there. On Oct. 6, Proud Boys in Providence, Rhode Island, attacked counterprotesters at a Resist Marxism demonstration . . .”
And really: watch that video.
[For these with PRKR, the company lost a lawsuit in Germany and the stock tanked. But a bigger German lawsuit remains, and an even bigger one here in America. No question: the stock could be zero. But I’m not taking any tax losses yet. One of those lawsuits could still work out.]

If Patrick Henry thought that taxation without representation was bad, he should see how bad it is with representation.~The Old Farmer's Almanac
