Rubio and Bush advisors call Trump a fascist

Advisors to the Bush and Rubio campaign called Donald Trump a fascist.

"Trump is a fascist. And that's not a term I use loosely or often. But he's earned it," tweeted Max Boot, a conservative fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations who is advising Marco Rubio.

"Forced federal registration of US citizens, based on religious identity, is fascism. Period. Nothing else to call it," Jeb Bush national security adviser John Noonan wrote on Twitter.

CNN took full advantage of these quotes to write an article entitled "Why some conservative say Trump talk is fascist." These people are handing ammunition to the liberal media.

These people are no conservatives. This is the liberal republican establishment base ripping into Trump in a way they would never, ever attack Democrats. They are collaborating in the Great Lie that Trump wants a registry of Muslims, which he has repeatedly denied. It's like the other Great Lie that Trump is against "Hispanic immigrants" when he is against illegal aliens.  But Rubio and Bush don't know the difference.

If they want to label someone as a dictator, they don't have to look far:

o A president who rewrites laws without the input of Congress (ObamaCare, multiple times);

o A president who, acting without legislation, legalizes millions of illegal aliens;

o A president who spies on all American citizens without cause;

o A president who tries to force young girls to shower with boys;

o A president who tries to create treaties without getting Senate ratification;

o A president who uses the IRS to oppress political opponents;

o A president who tries to force employers to pay for abortions.

And that's just what I thought of in under a minute. But Max Boot, who should receive a maximum booting for going nuclear on a candidate who could well be the Republican nominee, and John Noonan, who has a much less funnier name but is no less culpable, are directing their over the top fire at Trump, not Democrats. They're acting just like Mitt Romney did, tough on his conservative primary opponents, and like a lamb against Obama.

For the record, conservative talk show host Steve Deace, who has endorsed Ted Cruz, also criticized Trump for his "religious registry". Again, the only problem is, Trump did not endorse one.
