It sure feels like it. Over the past decade it seems there has been a dramatic rise in fear and hate- against blacks, against hispanics, against jews, against muslims, the liberal/communist/marcist/socialist/obamalover
Rationality has gone out the window.
I really don’t know what else to say. I had thought, or at least hoed, my country was better then this. I am disturbed and disgusted by what I see, what I read…
And I really wonder what next step this will be taken to if Obama wins reelection.
and as a final note- as someone who has family that fled Nazi germany, those on the right that insist the Nazis were socialists, because they had the word in their party name, and who infer Obama is of this stripe- would do well to read, and understand, history.

Fascists seek rejuvenation of their nation …where its individuals are united together as one people in national identity by suprapersonal connections of ancestry, culture, and blood…
Fascism seeks to purify the nation of foreign influences that are deemed to be causing degeneration of the nation or of not fitting into the national culture. Fascism promotes political violence and war, as forms of direct action that create national regeneration, spirit and vitality. Fascism opposes multiple ideologies: conservatism, liberalism, and two major forms of socialism—communism and social democracy.Fascism claims to represent a synthesis of cohesive ideas previously divided between traditional political ideologies. To achieve its goals, the fascist state purges forces, ideas, people, and systems deemed to be the cause of decadence and degeneration.
