"All right-wing authoritarian movements always do this. It's how they come to power. They drive chaos through policies of cynicism, nihilism, and then they promise to restore order with easy scapegoats." -Steve Schmidt on the GOP's authoritarian turn. @SteveSchmidtSES

Rachel refences Kagan's observation that we're collectively underestimating the authoritarian threat of the GOP and asks Schmidt what the opposite of that underestimation is. He replies, rightfully, that it is confrontation. 1/2

I think the main problem of underestimation stems from the feckless response of the MSM. Rachel is doing a superb job of confronting the threat but she can do much more by openly critiquing the tepid response of most of the MSM who continue to ignore this neo-fascist movement.2/2
