The justice's unprecedented and certainly unprovoked attack shows just how comfortable those in Washington are with destroying the man, even if they destroy the nation in the process. Hiatt's column gave Justice Ginsburg cover for shattering judicial canons. Oddly enough, it was Trump's temperament, not hers, that Hiatt questioned.
Here we have a woman in her dotage acting bizarrely unjudicial, and Hiatt blamed the victim:
As the idea of a President Trump has evolved from laughable to unlikely to oh-my-god-this-might-actually-happen, a debate has raged in Washington.
The debate is not over the man’s fitness for office — few people privately will make the case that Donald Trump is qualified or temperamentally suitable to be commander in chief — but over how much damage he might do.
Some say that Trump could be more disruptive than any previous leader, including propelling the nation toward fascism.There is an irony in the fascist meme that the Washington Post pushes; it even got Mike Godwin of Godwin's Law fame to say it is OK to call Trump "Hitler." The irony is, the media spreading unfounded fears of the opposition party is part of any fascist plan.
I am not saying there is a fascist plan behind the Hillary Clinton forces, but I am saying if we were honest about politics in this country, we would acknowledge that the 21st century Democratic Party is the closest we have come to a fascist regime. Certainly the abuses of power -- from the FBI to the IRS -- should alarm one and all. Black Lives Matter is quickly devolving into shock troops. Already police are on their heels in municipality upon municipality, not wanting to deal with the physical intimidation of BLM mobs nor the legal intimidation of the DOJ's Civil Rights Division. Hiatt calls Trump a fascist ("some say...") while ignoring the very disturbing developments of this regime.
As a country we are splitting because those in power in Washington are corrupt. All of them. Left-wing media, right-wing media, the lobbyists, Congress, the White House, the bureaucracy, and now, of course, the Supreme Court. Americans have lost faith in these institutions, and for good reason.
When someone like Hiatt calls Trump a fascist, I realize it is the cry of a powerful man who sees his own power in peril. This election is looking more like the "Lord of the Rings" by the hour. The corrosive nature of power has seldom been so vividly on display as it is right now.
