The Trump Threat

Is not that he wins and suspends habeas corpus and due process and libel law and allows wide scale police brutality….

Cuz, he ain’t going to win.  And if he did there’d be a lot of status and virtue in opposing him and we’d all find we do have strong checks and balances in ways that haven’t been obvious for, take your pick, 8 or 16 years.

No, the threat is the left will make up an exception for the reactionary goonsmanship that responds to Trump’s reactionary movement because they are not, ya know…. morally equivalent.

And thus bakes this mob rule into the cake, which would probably provoke a counter-counter reaction on the right….

I agree, that’s a bit of a danger and more so than anything Trump or the Trumpists can actually do.
