Is Trumpism This Generation's Version of the Confederacy?

Is Trumpism This Generation's Version of the Confederacy?

Todayís Republican Party, under the control of Trumpism, is every bit as real a threat to the survival of our republic as was the Confederacy in the 1860s.

Itís emerged from similar conditions and reflects a nearly identical worldview grounded in the fear of losing white supremacy. Itís based in the American South, as was the Confederacy.

The media needs to wake the hell up. The American government, the American people, and the Democratic Party must see the Trumpist Republican Party for the threat it is.

The FBI and intelligence agencies need to bring the seditionists within it to ground. Democrats must loudly call out its naked embrace of racism and fascism and make clear where this will lead if unchecked.

Every day that goes by without action brings us closer to the new Republican Partyís goal: tearing apart democracy in America and transforming this country into this generationís version of the Confederacy, complete with its own Lost Cause mythology.
