What do they think it means that we have elected a president who has surrounded himself with the likes of Steve Bannon, an avowed white suprema…

Neo-Nazis are not ‘very fine people’So it has come to this. The president of the United States defends some of the most vile, hateful people in the world, referring to them as “very fine people.” People trading brownshirts for polos and white robes for khakis, many of whom would be happy to send the president’s own Jewish grandchildren to the gas chambers.Howard …

Two out of three of these enemies, of course, have been essentially vanquished by the good old USA. The third, Russia, is much weaker than it once was but remains…
