about

Part of the lyric is taken from an old 1940's poster entitled 'The early warning signs of fascism"

lyrics

Powerful and continuous nationalism
Building a wall as a solution to immigration
obsession with national security
Banning certain religions and groups from entering this nation
Disdain for intellectuals and the arts
Ignoring climate change and scientific teachings
Demonization of the media
Banning mainstream news from press briefings

These are not just random lines, but a caution and a call to action
These are the warning signs of fascism

Religion and government intertwined
Enacting bigotry and hatred by far right Christian groups into policy
Rampart sexism
Controlling a woman’s reproductive choices while belittling woman for all to see
Widespread cronyism and corruption
Appointing leaders of largest oil companies and banks to the cabinet posts
Fraudulent elections
Encouraging Russian hacking of the democrats while attempting to suppress the vote

These are not just figments of your mind, but a caution and a call to action
These are the warning signs of fascism

Disdain for human rights
having a history of sending out racist dog whistles, hiring white supremicists as advisors
Obsession with crime and punishment
Telling the public that crime is at a 40 year high, another lie to stoke racist fires
Labor power suppressed
Taking away healthcare from the poor while the rich take as much as they can take
Identification of enemies as a unifying cause
Consistently tweeting that the free press is the enemy of the people and the news is fake

These are not just random lines, but a caution and a call to action
These are the warning signs of fascism
