Trump fascism worth fighting

For an anti-establishmentarian who claims to support the Constitution, Trump is remarkably anti-Constitution when it comes to the favorite tactic of some police: asset forfeiture.

That the cops can seize your money, your car, even your home, without you having been convicted of any crime is fascism, straight up. But Trump claims to love it. To the point of threatening to “destroy” the career of Texas state senator Konni Burton, a Republican Tea Party organizer, who is fighting the practice.

Replied Burton: “Requiring the government to secure a criminal conviction before permanently taking property from citizens is simply commonsense.”

Even, why should a criminal’s family be put on the street for something he did? It’s time for Mr. Law-n-Order to come clean about who he really is.
