Donald Trump and the F word

No longer amusing -- we need to acknowledge Trump is a fascist.

His latest idiocy is a proposal to prevent all Muslims from entering, or re-entering, the United States.

Fascism is corporatism bred with nationalism gone insane. And that's what we've got in the Republican front-runner.

I write about this xenopobic strain of the US political culture in JIHADI: A LOVE STORY. Truth is, yet again, stranger than fiction.

As an American citizen abroad, I should like to point out that the Donald's Nazi-esque restriction would mean I would be exiled under a Trump administration for exercising my First Amendment rights to worship as I choose. No, I am not making this up.

Fuck you, Mr. Trump.
