The Authoritarian Rot That Produced This President Is Present in the Republican Party at All Levels


<b>The Authoritarian Rot That Produced This President Is Present in the Republican Party at All Levels</b>Need proof? Look at Kentucky and Wisconsin.

When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross. I guess we should start this week's tour in Kentucky, where the Republican majority in the state legislature is making all kinds of noises about how, as far as they're all concerned, the wrong person got elected governor on Tuesday. Matt Bevin refused to concede to Attorney General Andy Beshear, who led by roughly 5,100 votes when all the precincts were counted. "There's less than one-half of 1%, as I understand, separating the governor and the attorney general," Stivers said. "We will follow the letter of the law and what various processes determine", Stivers, R-Manchester, said based on his staff's research. And, if you need further proof, take a jaunt with us up to Wisconsin, where the voters had the audacity to vote in Tony Evers, a Democrat, and turn out Scott Walker, the goggle-eyed homunculus hired by Koch Industries to manage that particular midwest subsidiary. Ever since Evers was inaugurated, his agriculture secretary was a man named Scott Pfaff. This week, the Republican majority in the state legislature fired him. Their excuse was that Pfaff had put in place new manure storage rules that would hurt the state's farmers. (This ignores the fact that the largest manure storage unit in Wisconsin is the building in which they work in Madison, but we digress.) The state's Democrats -and Evers- believe that the reason was even more heartless than that.
