So, when Bernie Sanders talks about corporate ownership of the electoral process, the right response is, why the fuck isn’t he talking about the rise of fascism in the US?

And when Repubs line up behind him, and as they go ahead with their nominating process, even though they are educated people and understand what they’re nominating, shouldn’t someone be publicly saying that this may be the single most significant thing any of them do in their entire lives.
Shouldn’t there be a Wikipedia page where the names of all Trump endorsers are listed? These are matters of public record. These people should feel that in the future there will be no chance of spinning their way out of responsibility. […]
A lot of things become clearer if we decide to talk the truth, and not pretend this is a normal election. No matter how hard you try, you can’t make Donald Trump into Mitt Romney. And that’s exactly what the Republican Party, in its dying Weimar gasps, is trying to do.

What story does that remind you of?
