… And in conversation with Andy Zee, Spokesperson for Revolution Books, and Co-Initiator of Refuse Fascism
“By placing Trump in transnational and transhistorical perspective, Stanley sees patterns that others miss. . . . By calling Trump a ‘fascist’—a word that strikes many Americans as alien and extreme — Stanley is trying to spark public alarm. He doesn’t want Americans to respond to Trump’s racist, authoritarian offensives by moving their moral goal posts. The greater danger, he suggests, isn’t hyperbole, it’s normalization. And twenty months into Trump’s presidency, the evidence is mounting that he’s right.”
