Here Comes Fascism!

Among the other horrors of the Dictator in Chief's speech to the CIA on the day after his inauguration, Trump openly declared that he has a "running war with the media" and tried to get the CIA to join the ranks.

"The president just tried to rally CIA workforce around the idea that media is the enemy. Let that sink in," wrote Mark Mazzetti, a Washington investigations editor at The New York Times. 
Trump himself called it a "war," further ratcheting up his extreme anti-media rhetoric from the campaign trail. 
"As you know, I have a running war with the media. They are among the most dishonest human beings on Earth," Trump said.

Again, this is fascism 101 shit right here. And don't try to tell me it's an empty threat or "lock room talk" or whatever the hell bullshit excuse. Because:

Four more journalists get felony charges after covering inauguration unrest.

Four more journalists have been charged with felonies after being arrested while covering the unrest around Donald Trump’s inauguration, meaning that at least six media workers are facing up to 10 years in prison and a $25,000 fine if convicted. 
A documentary producer, a photojournalist, a live-streamer and a freelance reporter were each charged with the most serious level of offense under Washington DC’s law against rioting, after being caught up in the police action against demonstrators. 

And:

Trump Won’t Remove Press From White House, But Says He Will Pick Who Gets In

I'm going to keep saying it. Trump is a fascist. He is implementing fascism. We now live under a fascist regime.
