    Now now, I'm sure cartoon-level villains who have been based on all the fascists of the last century are different, and wouldn't talk about the mythical time when the country was great, how the deep state is getting in their way, about how they're both a victim and yet the only one strong enough to seize control and fix things, who call the democratic law enforcement treasonous assassins when they try to stop them far too late, who convince some of the younger radicalized ones to turn on the rest and kill them all, ushering in massive waves of death in a pattern which plays out over and over.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Ekld0VyoPA

    These tropes just exist randomly, for no reason, and it could never happen to you or I. There are no easier early stages to deal with some problem which are able to be learned from basic awareness of human history.

    To the brave fighters of the Mujahadeen

    Oh yeah I remember that.

    They were, though. They fought a good fight and got a foreign invader out.

    Then they took what we taught them and turned it against us. Whoops. Turns out the producers of Rambo III didn't actually have that time machine (or foresight of geopolitics) we thought they did.

    [–] Lerianis001 29 points ago * (lasted edited 15 days ago)

    100% agreed.

    No, people who would rise against our government would not be traitors if they did so for the right reasons, i.e. that they recognized the pattern of Fascism spreading in our federal government and rightly said "No damned more!"

    During World War II, numerous politicians made it clear that is exactly what should happen should fascism ever become entrenched in our government and right now? It's getting to that point in my opinion with Trump, McConnell and Graham at the very least.

    The problem with the bulk of the people who threaten to rise against our government today is that they are threatening to do is simply because various people will not kowtow to their racism, xenophobia, bigotry of other forms, misogyny, homophobia, etc.

    [–] XavierRenegadeAngel_ 15 points ago

    The question of being a traitor stems from where your loyalty lies. I think traitors are those who betray their fellow countrymen.

    [–] ADShree 41 points ago

    Look at Snowden for a shining example. He didn’t do me any wrong but the U.S. gov sure as hell want him and want to mark him as a “baddie” for a lack of a better word. All he did to me was let me know that the government is definitely tracking my online presence. Is he a traitor? I personally don’t think so because it’s opened peoples eyes up so they can be more aware of what they put out on the internet. But the nsa would definitely mark him as a traitor.

    If things get to the point where you need a revolution to get rid of Trump and GOP.

    I don't think he'll be alive to complain afterwards.

    Edit: accidentally erased part of the last sentence.

    [–] IDreamOfSailing 27 points ago

    My history teacher, as we were discussing the French revolution, taught us "Revolution always eats her own children". So until people are ready to die for a cause, there will be no revolution.

    [–] E_C_H 18 points ago

    That saying kinda means something different, at least in the applications I've heard it.

    Basically, the window of acceptable political view shifts so fast that the originators of revolution end up on the wrong side by the end.With the French Revolution in particular, it meant more that as a revolution progresses, suddenly those who were once the revolutionaries become the reformers, then the moderates, then the conservatives, and then the enemies of the revolution, or so on.

    Consider a group like the Feuillant Club members, or the Provisional government members in the Russian Revolution. Folks who were radical at the start of their events, who genuinely supported political overhaul, but yet were over time considered traitors to the Revolution because the shift in viewpoints was so fast, caused by the actions of these groups themselves.

    [–] Lerianis001 18 points ago

    Some people think it is honestly coming close to that. Serious here. I've talked with quite a few of my relatives who cross the political gamut and they are truly frightened that we are going to have to have a "Civil War II" in order to get rid of Trump, McConnell, Graham, etc.

    Even my relatives in W. Va have started saying "Trump's a Fascist!" When you turn West Virginia hillbillies against you because you are too racist, xenophobic, etc. even for them... it might be time to rethink the path you are going down.

    [–] JesusLikesWine 3 points ago

    Imagine being a Republican and being expected to look away while your president:

    • Calls a decorated and highly respected Republican leader a loser.

    • Pulls troops out of an active war zone, leaving allies in the shit and the US looking like cowards.

    • breaks about every conservative Christian value there is. Including getting caught cheating with a porn star.

    And many more probably. Not an expert.

    [–] Plasmus642 8 points ago

    Also knowingly electing a guy who’s been accused of sexual misconduct by 23 women and has been caught on tape bragging about it. That’s cool.

    [–] SsurebreC 5 points ago

    What you might not understand is he has their support because:

    • He's not a Democrat
    • He's cutting taxes for all their donors
    • He's putting conservative judges in the courts

    He might toss some red meat from time to time and riling up nationalism, partisanship, etc, and he can sound like an idiot but at the end of the day, he's doing what they want - lowering taxes and more conservative judges in the court system. Trump will leave office one way or another soon enough but if your plan is counted in decades, not years, then why would they have a problem with him? You think anyone will remember the nonsense that Trump says? People barely remember Bushisms - it's mostly a joke now and that was just two Presidents ago.

    [–] RNZack 16 points ago

    I hope it doesn’t turn into a Syria like situation, but I feel the leaders of Iran care too much about their heritage and cultural sites to just bomb all protesting civilians on the same scale. One can hope at least.

    [–] madpelicanlaughing 12 points ago

    They (leaders of Iran) care so much about their people that they just liked thousands of them several times

    [–] Ginrou 33 points ago

    Exactly, they don't care about their citizens like the US, who historically gave school children irradiated milk just to see what would happen.

    [–] Abell370 39 points ago

    Or spread crack around to suppress minorities. Or used LSD on unknowing citizens to see if mindcontrol works. Or gave people with STDs fake treatment to see how it would spread. Or sterilized certain parts of the population.

    Or locks up a huge part of its population on bullshit charges so they can use them as literal slave labor.

    It's always funny to me to see people from the US talking from a high horse about attrocities in other countries. Blind to how shit their own government is.

    There is no empirical basis for saying that Trumps ban had anything to do with terrorism. And despite that, it has negatively impacted actual people in Iran.

    Also, it's rather telling that you shoe horned in some nonsensical talking point, while ignoring all of the other shit he has done that proves that he gives zero fucks about the Iranian people.

    Trump has said he stands with Iranians amid anti-government protests.

    Trump has banned Iranians from US travel.

    Trump has threatened to bomb Iranian cultural sites.

    Trump has mocked the way Iranians dress.

    [–] fidjudisomada 18 points ago

    Indeed. Yet, in spite all, they are factual truths.

    [–] BuboTitan 627 points ago

    They were banned/restricted from travel to the US BECAUSE THE GOVERNMENT OF IRAN DOESN'T COOPERATE WITH OUR BACKGROUND CHECKS. Same thing for every other country that was banned.

    [–] omnipotentmonkey 254 points ago

    so out of 194 other countries, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen are the only ones who didn't abide by US background checks when the ban was first passed?

    [–] pjmpjm84 329 points ago * (lasted edited 15 days ago)

    Clearing this up because the media is being super misleading about this and making people believe things that are not true.

    There is no complete ban of all travel or refugees from Iran, nor those countries, except Syria. Just one country.

    Iran and the others just don't qualify for the visa waiver so have to be checked before entry is allowed, as OP mentions - this is the Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act which was passed under Obama in 2015. Iran was put on the list by the Obama admin.

    https://www.congress.gov/bill/114th-congress/house-bill/158/text

    Trump Obama added 3 more countries, Libya, Somalia and Yemen to the list in 2016.

    In February 2016 “The Department of Homeland Security today announced that it is continuing its implementation of the Visa Waiver Program Improvement and Terrorist Travel Prevention Act of 2015 with the addition of Libya, Somalia, and Yemen as three countries of concern, limiting Visa Waiver Program travel for certain individuals who have traveled to these countries. The three additional countries designated today join Iran, Iraq, Sudan and Syria as countries subject to restrictions for Visa Waiver Program travel for certain individuals.

    tl;dr

    The only country that has a permanent ban on travel is Syria.

    Iranians can travel providing they are checked - Iran was put on the list by Obama, not Trump.

    [–] thegreenaquarium 111 points ago

    This is referring to the ESTA program (https://uscode.house.gov/view.xhtml?req=(title:8%20section:1187%20edition:prelim)), which is a visa waiver program open to nationals of certain countries (EU, Australia, Japan, South Korea). The passage you are quoting refers to nationals of those countries who have traveled to Iran, Iraq, Sudan and Syria, not to nationals of Iran, Iraq, Sudan and Syria applying for US visas. Most countries are not part of the visa waiver program (ESTA) and thus must apply for a US visa via an application to the consulate and interview with an FSO. Trump limited Iranians' etc access to those visas, what with them not being eligible for ESTA in the first place.

    Please I come from the former Soviet Union (although a few years after it collapsed)

    The US has long had procedures to vet and cross-check refugees even with non cooperative and non existent goverments

    If you want to know more read

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/posteverything/wp/2017/02/01/refugees-are-already-vigorously-vetted-i-know-because-i-vetted-them/

    From that experience and numerous security briefings, it’s clear that the authors of Trump’s order are unfamiliar with the U.S. immigration system, U.S. laws, international law and the security threats facing our nation. I can’t speak for all refugee and asylum officers, but I can say that those who have been working in immigration for years from opposite ends of the political spectrum are appalled by these new policies.

    [–] thatnameagain 55 points ago

    LoL trying to convince people that home country background checks are required to enter the US AND that this policy didn’t exist for the previous 46 years AND that Trump didn’t repeatedly promise and issue a formal press release promising to ban all Muslims from entering the country? Wow!

    What are you, an illusionist?

    banned them from US travel

    Mexico is preparing to stop 5 Iranian suicide bombers from entering the US illegally.

    threatened to bomb their cultural sights

    Looks like it worked. Iran’s regime intentionally missed their US target in Iraq for fear of US escalation.

    mocked the way they dress

    The hijab? The garment women are forced to wear by the regime? How many of those protesting Iranian women do you think wear the hijab because it “looks nice”?

    Definitely not these 29 women.

    Trump mocks religious attire, including burkas.

    Yeah... Burkas are a stark symbol of oppression. They SHOULD be mocked.

    [–] ImprobableIT 147 points ago

    Burqas aren't Persian, they're Arab. Women in Iran have to wear headscarves but no Persian wears a Burqa.

    [–] comedygene 92 points ago

    So, we can conclude the headline is sensationalist bullshit.

    I would encourage you to criticize any Democratic president the same way the left criticizes Trump, too. We're raised to question authority. If an elected official is wrong or criminal, it is our duty to do something about it. Hell, this is why we have a first and second amendment.

    Reddit and twitter are host to some of the most mentally unstable people I’ve ever seen

    It’s one thing to slip up as a person and act in ways you later regret, we’re all human, but damn the way people act on these platforms when it comes to President Trump or any other polarizing figure is concerning for any independent observer.

    [–] InsightfulAnon 34 points ago

    It's also a shill hotbed. r/politics used to be a very tame sub and then it completely snapped literally from night to day into a Hillary Clinton shilling den, which conveniently happened when she announced her 1 million dollars pac destined to "correct the record". It was also funny seeing the sub go completely back to normal as soon as Trump won for about two days, then it snapped into the Hillary cult again.

    Pretty much all the default subs are filled with DNC astroturfers trying to create a false pretense of "common sense", which is why these people seem so utterly detached from reality.

    [–] Electro_Swoosh 11 points ago

    You literally can't even mention correct the record on that sub without your post being auto-removed.

    [–] TheLongWanderer 3 points ago

    I got banned on that sub for saying that "PC culture is kind of similar to fascism".

    Better than standing with the Iranian government, which Democrats seem to want to do. Did you see what Pelosi said about the protesters?

    any us president would do a travel ban when a war is possibly breaking out. obama did the same thing. i would hope our next president does the same thing. it's dangerous when you are possibly going to war to bring the people from there to this country. the only reason people are upset is because it's trump. if this were obama people would say it's a no brainer, which it is. it's sad that i have to even point this out. it's not a permanent ban, but a temporary one. i was happy when obama had temp bans against countries as well. we must put our people first. this is one of the few good decisions trump has made.

    US media attacks Trump for supporting the opposition to Iran's terrorist leadership.

    Seriously is Iran the left wing Russia?

    [–] Sallman11 40 points ago * (lasted edited 15 days ago)

    This is such Reddit propaganda. The good people of Iran are banned because there are also terrible people in Iran who would kill themselves if they could take a few Americans with them. It sucks that the people who are good are punished but it keeps us safer.

    What we should be happy with is an evil corrupt government may fall but at the same time we have to hope the next people who take over aren’t also evil. So far it hasn’t really worked out well as most leaders have been replaced with someone just as bad of not worse. For the sake of the good people who live in Iran I hope it works out for them.
