Krugman on fascism, American style
He discusses how Dump pardoning Arpaio is a direct expression for this style of racist fascism. It's a blatant statement that whites are the superior race and are entitled to abuse other races as inferior to justify horrible practices. It's also a statement that the rule of law can be ignored and anyone convicted in the Russian scandal will also be pardoned. Meanwhile there are the Repugnantans who may not be racist or fascist but indeed go along with it to get what they want. But make no mistake: They are collaborators in fascism and history will remember them as such.
