Trump Using Secret Police to Shoot and Arrest Protesters?
I became fascinated with the books written by Soviet dissidents like Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn just as I graduated from high school.
Solzhenitsyn authored my favorite book of the genre titled “One day in the life of Ivan Denisovich,” which is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand what it’s really like, the genuine horror to have lived in that fascist, authoritarian state.
A country that you literally could be arrested by the ‘secret police’ at any moment and instantly condemned to life in prison, even death for slightest infraction real or imagined.
I wouldn’t have imagined 40 years later that my beloved country would descend into an authoritarian state, where anyone could be scooped up off the streets or shot by secret police roaming America without identification or warrants.
The simple surveillance of protesters by the FBI from 1967-1973 helped create the backlash that forced the end of the Vietnam War. Had secret police been used by Nixon and J. Edger Hoover back during the Vietnam peace protests, both men would have been forced to resign. Trump and his sycophant Kakistocracy must be checked; we are not and never will be a police state.
This use of secret police blowing up all over the internet and will be one of the lead stories right through the election. Does Trump's actually think his new proactive 'Law and Order' stance of using secret police and suspending the United States Constitution and Bill of Rights will help actually make America great again?
