The auditions have begun for the new avatar for the Koch-Kremlin cadre. Once you know the fascist playbook, it reduces the power of these extremist cult members. They are trying to be more extreme than Trump, who moved the Overton Window so far, he is now their center. They’ve normalized fascism.
I am hoping that if enough of us become scholars of how fascism works that we expose these cons for who and what they are - enablers of evil - before they gain another ounce of power.
The majority of Americans reject these strongmen and women. We have to stick together. Knowledge is armor against the fascist creep.

Bette Dangerous is a reader-funded magazine. Thank you to all monthly, annual, and founding members. Thank you, as well, to those who support my work with coffee tips and who buy my ebooks. My reflection, Confessions of a ‘Fox Blonde’ was recently published in Byline Supplement. In a review of my latest ebook, the erotic novella Fox Undercover, author Greg Olear called it “The Big Sleep 2.0” except with “not so much sleep happening.”
Fox Undercover can be purchased here.
