The sinking GOP Establishment now resorts to calling Donald Trump a “fascist.” We explore the nature and history of fascism, and marvel at the desperation behind the accusation. Are Beltway Elites aware of the immigration policies of Eisenhower, Truman and FDR? Now that Karl Rove and Bill Kristol appear to be throwing lifelines to the Ben Carson campaign, are GOP insiders feeling remorse for their recent attacks on Carson? Did they take him down too soon for their purposes? Meanwhile, as Trump increases his lead in the polls and draws enormous crowds across America, the GOP Consultant Class consoles itself with the meme that “voters aren’t paying attention yet.” But will such veiled insults to GOP voters only prolong their misguided state of denial? And is it fair for the media to characterize Trump as a “bully” even as he absorbs more “incoming” attacks than all the other candidates combined? Are GOP Elites secretly hoping for Hillary as president? With music and listener calls.
