Orwell’s anticipation of the ‘nationalism’ of Donald Trump

Donald Trump is not a fascist. But he clearly espouses and believes in the kind of 'nationalist' thinking Orwell warned against over 70 years ago: a 'power hunger, tempered by self-deception.'

The endorsement of Donald Trump is a sad commentary on how much the Republican Party's hatred and fear of Hillary Clinton and the Democrats has unhinged their ability to see where the true danger to the Republic lies in the coming election. Photograph courtesy of YouTube
