Authoritarian Check List
Taken from the writings of well known dictators, here is a check list of steps to be taken to destroy a democracy and substitute authoritarian rule. These are fascist guidelines.
- The first was a disdain for elites of any kind and the blaming today of the so-called “deep state”.
- A well-orchestrated propaganda machine. ( Fox, OAN, Breightbart, Twitter, Facebook, Newsmax etc ) and discrediting traditional media.
- Putting into place all the apparatus of a police state in which the tasks of surveillance. (patriot act, gitmo etc) 1
- War! ( Traitorous ProudBoys, Qanon threaten violence war on fellow American citizens resemble Hitler's brown shirts. )
- Republicans formalize embrace of American Fascism-January 13, 2021. 3
I add to this the more contemorianias tool used by many on the right, religion. We have elected officials such as Marco Rubio of Florida, using his fake Christian values as cover for very un-Christian support for the overthrow of our nation. Those are not Christians, those are people who use the cloak of religion as a weapon against American values.
Whitehead and Perry argue that Christian nationalism merely uses the Bible to impose its conservative political agenda.2
On another page I will itemize the specific steps already instituted by Trump/GOP with the cooperation or silence of Republican leadership.
