| Photo from Washington DC Tours | There seems to be a concerningly thriving trend within American political discourse to label any opposition as Fascist. As current generations have become farther and farther removed from the authentic Fascist regimes of the past, activists have become increasingly vocal in their classification of any politician, short of an anarchist, as a Fascist corrupting the soul of The United States as we know it. These designations are not only both historically misleading and objectively incorrect but also an unbelievably unproductive talking point that only serves to plunge America into a deeper political divide. Fascism is defined by Merriam Webster as “a politica
(AP PHOTO/PATRICK SEMANSKY) Photo From The American Prospect Both the Republican and Democratic Parties have failed communities of color in various ways that either alienate them or take them for granted. No one has tried to stop the Democratic Party power grab and Republicans have disappointed millions of voters by failing to provide an adequate alternative. In the wake of the death of George Floyd, we have reached a turning point. The relationship between the public and established institutions has become strained, challenged, and rebuked by the people.

FDR’s administration covered up the atrocities — keeping information, which was courageously smuggled to them, under wraps for over three months — allowing two million Jews to die before making their knowledge public in mid-November, 1942. Once they announced what they knew to the public, the media had no interest in the story. Tablet Magazine writes, “The country’s two leading newspapers [the New York Times and the Washington Post] ran a few paragraphs from the wire services, burying
For too long the Democratic Party has been the only party holding the microphone in conversations about the environment. Climate change has surpassed merely an issue of importance to voters to become a national and global threat. Two-thirds of voters agree that the federal government does too little to combat climate change. However, a much smaller fraction of our party agrees. This dichotomy represents a two-pronged threat wherein the GOP will suffer at the ballot box, and bad policy will be enacted in its absence if the party continues to cede this issue to the Democratic Party.
