Dont Be Fooled: Existing  Extremism Is Not Trump but GOP Establishment

By Tim Libretti

Trump has effectively functioned as a smoke screen for the remarkably consistent orchestration of a Republican scorched earth policy at the state level

That Donald Trump is a misogynist and a bigot who has routinely mistreated his workers, undermined unions, engaged in trade practices hostile to American industry and workers and overall cultivated the worst and most divisive instincts in Americans is without dispute. His behavior and demeanor have inspired debate as to whether the term fascist can be fairly applied to him, and more than a few pundits have agreed that Trumps political ways do deserve the label.

.

If you argue he needs to be stopped, youll get no argument from this author.

.

The facts are, though, that he is likely to lose the election and that he does not occupy a political office from which to inflict his extreme, possibly even fascist, political program that would surely wreak great damage on U.S. society in terms of undermining democracy and turning back the clock on progress the country has made in crawling toward a more economically, socially, environmentally, and politically just and humane nation.

.

But while so much energy in this political season goes to keeping Trump out of office and focusing on his extremism, as if its anomalous and unusual, the real GOP extremist agenda rolls on across the country.

.

Trump has effectively functioned as a smoke screen, or as cloud cover, for the remarkably consistent orchestration of a Republican scorched earth policy at the state level. The Trump effect has succeeded in distracting us from this reality. Some Republican politicians have nimbly and strategically tried to distance themselves from Trump or walked a tightrope, making that fine distinction between voting for him and endorsing him. Paul Ryan has been chief among these political gymnasts, and yet as I write on November 5, he is campaigning with Mike Pence in Wisconsin trying to turn the state for Trump.

.

This is because the GOP establishment is not different from Trump in terms of many of the extremist policies he supports and certainly in terms of the agenda of undermining unions, making life harder for the working classes in America, furthering the interests of the already wealthy and corporations, making healthcare less accessible, slashing taxes which will result in cutting funding for vital and basic services and schools, and no doubt fostering bigotry. The difference is that GOP leaders like Bruce Rauner, Rick Snyder, Scott Walker, Sam Brownback, and Paul Ryan, among many others, are actually in office, in positions of political power, carrying out or trying to carry out the Trump agenda in actuality. Former Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal also once held this office and, according to even conservative political observers, similarly scorched the earth of Louisiana before he left office, leaving the state in shambles because of the excessive tax cuts he implemented.

When is the last time you heard about Flint, Michigan in the news? Exactly.
