The Fascist America That Kamala Promises, by Jack Cashill

Kamala Harris has never demonstrated much sensitivity towards individual rights. From Jack Cashill at americanthinker.com:

I do not use the term “fascist” lightly, but when even the liberal Los Angeles Times opens an article with a paragraph like the one that follows, I think fascist is apt:
