Hyperbole

I suppose it’s fair to say that I like hyperbole as much as the next man. In fact, Lyn has started to take the piss at how I tend to accuse anyone I dislike of being a fascist. Yet, scarily, I’m afraid to say things have reached a point where such accusations are no longer hyperbole, or a reaction to anyone whose views I find vaguely illiberal. Fascism is indeed returning: we are seeing it in brazil.  In America, I’ve seen reports of devious schemes to bar African Americans from voting. Trump also seems to be trying to generate a  personality cult around him, so that his  supporters believe what he says over any other source. That is exactly what Hitler did. Things are becoming very, very dangerous. It’s no longer  hyperbole – fascism has returned.
