The flexing of all this hard power by our corporate ruling class in the name of Trump hysteria is already making lots of people who are traditional liberals from Thomas Frank to Glenn Greenwald to Tulsi Gabbard extremely uncomfortable. The Blumpf threat was wildly exaggerated.
We thought he was a joke. He sat in the Oval Office eating McDonald’s and drinking Diet Coke, tweeting empty threats, yelling at the “shows” on television. Even when Black Lives Matter and Antifa rioted for months all across the country, Trump the “fascist” did nothing. Is there anything more “authoritarian” than the power these unaccountable corporate elites wield to censor and cancel people for having a different opinion or their pathetic little minions who relish destroying the lives of ordinary people?
In the end, they couldn’t resist revealing themselves and showing Trump who is boss. Love him or hate him, Blumpf was the president and he was relatively powerless compared to this cabal of elites.
