The end of hyperbole

hyperbole /hī-pûrˈbə-lē/ noun
A rhetorical figure which produces a vivid impression by extravagant and obvious exaggeration

For a long time people have accused other people of being fascists and talked about fascism in a way which was clearly hyperbolic and offensive to people who suffered at the hands of actual fascists.

What is happening in Portland is the moment when it stops being hyperbolic to talk about fascism: there is a very real chance that this is the beginning of a fascist regime in the US. If you are not terrified by what Trump is doing and what his ambitions are you are not paying attention.

Be afraid, be very afraid.
