"Ethnonationalists" Are You F@#king Kidding?
When the picture shows a thug with a pistol on his belt and the Klan logo on his shirt, he's not an "ethnonationalist." He's a racist and worse.
Ethno-nationalism was at the heart of Hitler's National Socialist Party. It was the Nazi creed. And just because it's spreading across the United States there's no excuse for an obscure name to mask this disease - it's full-bore fascism in all its permutations. It's anti-black. It's anti-Latino. It's anti-Asian. It's anti-Semitic. It's anti-Muslim. It's misogynist as all get out. It's angry and it's violent. It's deliberately ominous and threatening.
So, CBC, it's time you called a spade a shovel. These assholes, a significant component of Donald Trump's base, are fascists. They're latter day American nazis and they have evil designs on their country.
And if you want to see how this fascism blends seamlessly with Christian fundamentalism, Christo-fascism, check this out.
