Even though Donald Trump is now out of office, the danger that he may return to power as head of a cult-like fascist movement is growing by the day,.Late news reports show that two thirds of Republican voters believe his "Stolen Election" Big Lie which threatens the heart of our democracy.

For another urgent warning about the threat that Donald Trump's and his GOP supporters' "Stolen Election" Big Lie poses to our democracy, see also an interview with Michigan Secretary of State and election law expert Jocelyn Benson:

Unbelievably, the Biden administration is also refusing to cancel an inhuman, fascist-style border mass deportation policy that Trump instituted based on the Big Lie that Mexican and Central American immigrants risk infecting American with Covid-19.

Tump's "Stolen Election" Big Lie is hardly the first fascist style Big Lie. In his 2020 book;

A BRIEF HISTORY OF FASCIST LIES,

author Frederico Finchelstein describes the danger of Trump's immigration lies as follows:

"Fascism acts from below, but it is legitimized from above. When the Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro openly denigrates Afro-Brazilians or when American president Donald J. Trump talks about Mexicans as "rapists" or an "invasion" arriving in "caravans" they legitimize fascist thinking in some of their political followers. Racist lies, in turn, proliferate in public discourse."

The history of racist and other political BIg Lies in enabling the rise of fascism in Europe in the 1920's and 1930's should raise even more alarms over the apparent willingness of the Biden administration to continue relying on Trump's cynical, despicable Big Lie that immigrants entering the US at the Mexican border risk bringing Covid-19 to America. But that exactly what President Biden's DHS chief, Alejandro Mayorkas, is doing by following Trump's practice of using Title 42 as a pretext to engage in mass deportations of hundreds of thousands of people at the southern border in violation of due process and basic human rights.
