A Very Short List Of People Who Were Not Fascists
Well, fear not. A very quick googling of political pundits reveals these people who spend a lot of time thinking about such things as fascism and haywire American politics--most of them, anyway--don't think Donald Trump is a fascist. It turns out there are very narrow criteria that determine whether someone or something is fascist. These criteria are too unpleasant to inventory here, but Trump does not seem to fit the bill. Most of the time.
A more comforting and more accessible inventory might be a very short list of people who were not fascists. You and I can review this list and relax. Surely if these people weren't fascist, Donald Trump is not.
