In 2019,Time Magazine ran this story by Olivia B. Waxman on the origins,meaning & implications of fascism. If millions of Americans support the 21st century version of this movement, they should definitely understand it. #Fascists #TrumpCult 1/38

When Benito Mussolini debuted the Fasci Italiani di Combattimento, the precursor to his fascist party, on Mar. 23, 1919, in Milan, he wasn’t inventing the idea of violent authoritarianism. But he put a name on a new and terrible breed of it. #Fascism #TrumpCult 2/38 Image
Under his leadership, squads of militants attacked,beat &killed fellow Italians;later, once he had become the authoritarian ruler of Italy,he oversaw brutality in Ethiopia,an alliance with Hitler & the persecution of Italy’s Jewish population and others, among other crimes. 3/38 Image

“Around this time 12 years ago, as investments from Barack Obama's Recovery Act started reaching communities nationwide, Republicans who opposed the economic package started showing up at ribbon-cutting ceremonies.”3/20 #RepublicanHypocrisy
