Democrats are screaming about “fascism” ever since the election of President Donald Trump, but remain completely silent when a political candidate for governor announces that they’ve figured out a way to ban a certain type of gun by decree, completely circumventing anything resembling democratic process.
[Former U.S. Congresswoman Gwen] Graham pledged to ban assault weapons sales using a little-known state law.
“I have found a public safety statute that allows the governor, whoever she may be, to sign an executive order for public safety reasons banning that sale of military-style assault weapons,” Graham said.
In other words, she plans on banning the sale of scary-looking rifles by executive fiat, probably because she knows that despite the recent capitulation of the state’s legislature on a handful of gun control measures, a ban just isn’t going to get enough votes to pass.
Graham has basically said screw the legislative process and plans to govern with a phone and pen, kind of like President Obama did.
Yet Trump is the fascist dictator?
Of course it is not fascism when the left does it.
