While some idiots go around monkey-howling about advisory agencies that would help media outlets identify dangerous misinformation, but with no actual regulatory power, they want us to look away while their white supremacist hero, now proven to be totally disrespectful of democratic elections and our Constitution, has vowed to take true authoritarian measures if America is stupid enough to return him to power. trump has vowed to: - move the FCC to direct presidential control. What can be fucking worse for free speech and democracy than a proven narcissist corrupt titty baby with the power to shut down media outlets who happen to upset him? - move the FTC to direct presidential control. A perfect setup that would be for an obvious crook, to have the power to ignore antitrust and consumer protection laws, to favor his own greedy interests and to punish those who disagree with his corruptions. - impound funds that Congress has authorized, to deny funding for programs he doesn't like. - strip employment protections from Federal civil servants, to make it easier to remove them if he feels they stand in the way of his authoritarianism. - get rid of law enforcement personnel who investigate corruption. - get rid of intelligence agents who work against his dictatorial allies. - remove independence from the Department of Justice, to make that department his own personal agenda enforcement agency and to focus the FBI upon his own chosen targets.
