Hollywood icon Barbra Streisand just completely lost it when she claimed that President Donald Trump is “pursuing the path towards fascism.”
Streisand took to Twitter on Monday afternoon to post an Esquire article that mentions comments made by Jesse Jackson and the late John Lewis in 2016 about the dangers of a Trump presidency.
“Donald Trump and his Administration are now pursuing the path towards fascism,” Streisand, 78, captioned the tweet.

“They’re trying to take us back to another period, trying to make it harder and more difficult for people to participate in the democratic process, and we must not allow it,” Lewis was quoted as saying in the article. “We’ve got to win this election. We’ve got to win, I’m telling you.”
The article goes on to claim that because people did not follow this advice, the United States is now comparable to life under former Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet’s military junta:
Not enough people listened. Not enough people heard. And now, the day they warned us about is here… The great modern conservative project turned itself, by those same tiny degrees, into an authoritarian opposition to a democratic republic and all its institutions. Steadily, it abandoned decency, civility, science, reason, and simple humanity. And here we are, at the day Jackson and Lewis warned us about because they had learned clairvoyance under fire when that project began.
A crippled nation, literally a sick nation, watching Pinochet tactics in the streets, watching a feckless (or worse) administration* taking actions that actively make the public health situation worse, watching a brutal (or worse) administration* brutalize mothers in Portland and promising to bring those tactics to a number of American cities in advance of a national election, with all that implies and entails.
Streisand has long been showing that she remains one among those who dislike President Trump. Earlier this year, she dramatically warned that America could be “extinguished” if Trump wins re-election in November.
“Every day, he takes another swipe at the pillars of our democracy, but we cannot allow him to irrevocably change this country,” Streisand wrote in a piece for Variety back in March. “The ‘beacon of hope’ that is America could be extinguished if he’s given another four years.”

Nothing Trump could ever do could please this woman, except his passing. What a hateful woman Babs is/has become…
Barbra needs her basement where she hides out between Paranoid Public appearances.
Another one to join Clinton in the woods.
Don and Babs deserve each other – uneducated Yanks! 🤔 😱
Few people even know what Fascism even is. I’m certain this birdbrain has no clue about the political-science of evil fascism. I’d bet she thinks she’s smart (Dunning Kruger Syndrome).
FYI.. fascism is a political movement by Muscolini, based on a book (By Gentile). The marketing of his movement is to use the fascicle, a type of tool (axe) where the handle is made strong due to bundling of smaller twigs. Thus by sticking together, the Italians could be strong. Roughly translated it is similar to “one for all, and all for one” and E Pluribus Unum.
Hitler loved the cool italian uniforms and concept, so he copied some parts for his version of fascism. The italian version of the manifesto for fascism is very illuminating. In it, Mussolini called for such things as voting rights for women. A work week of 45 hours, and voting for those 18 and up (vs 25).
Reportedly, there was not much genocidal anti-semitism in Naziism at the begining. For various reasons, it eventually revealed its evil, and or evolved to become even more monstrous with time.
Wonder if Bolin is getting tired of her?..Or he’s staying with her, because he has no where to go…
I wonder if Barbara Streisand remembers the concerts she did at Trump’s Taj Mahal when she invited her friend Donald on stage during her performance ? I do along with Cher’s concerts there ! Isn’t it funny what changes happen after someone changes parties and runs for President ?
Thank You, Dawn.
Aaa: The best comment, I’ve ever read! Kudos to you!!!
ya know, babs, I used to have so much respect for you – buying your records, watching your tv specials, seeing you on broadway, going to the movies to see your films, also buying your films, buying books about your life. Now, I’m embarrassed to admit I ever heard of you. How can you not see it is the socialist democrats who are heading to communism/fascism/marxism/whatever-ism? We – republicans, conservatists, independents, are trying to stop y-o-u and your party from destroying our country. Look what y-o-u-r people, paid for by soros, the dnc, the clintons, et al, are doing in Portland, Michigan, NYC, Florida, etc. That is anarchy, insurrection, terrorism, and criminal. Shame on you, Streisand – you used to represent all that America is. Now, I just wish you would leave America and go some place else where you will be happy; after all, you have the constitutional freedom to do that.
Anyone interested in 3 boxes of Streisand albums, CDs, vhs, DVDs, books – leave me a msg.
China doesn’t want to listen to her and neither does Israel…
Barbara if you don’t like it here in the States then by all means move to China I am sure you will be welcomed with open arms, but keep you mouth shut or you will be welcomed into a jail.
Really if you cans still sing go belt out tunes cause the is what you were good at and thank God if you believe in him for the gift you once had and ask him to help you recognize the constituiton again and recognize to up hold the law and not help support the looting riots etc etc and also you had better hope those rioters never approach your door and you call the police for help ! hummmm will they come , if Califorinia keeps up their so called defunding you will not hav. any to come to your door will you? You need mental help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
She’s craving for attention…
Barbra threatened to leave the USA if another conservative won the presidency years ago.
Did she ? No !!! Barbra didn’t even go out on a boat in the Pacific. She’s all TALK, as are many.
Besides, who cares if they move elsewhere, anyway ? Maybe their family. ( Maybe not )
I think i have been watching Baboon Barbara,s leftist animals take down and destroy our pillars of democracy. She has become another Biden Junior. Demented.
Babs is very mentally unstable, and needs to be locked in a rubber room for the safety of all
Yes, and if that happened, THEN she would leave America and go to Australia or another country where she could be free.
Remember the movie “The Way We Were”? She would she our Constitutional Republic fundamentally changed to a Marxist socialist state.
What else do you expect from the whackadoodle that used to be a frequent “overnight” guest at the Clinton White House?
I love how these FASCIST libs–who are continually seeking to SILENCE and DEMONIZE anybody who dares disagree with them–are always calling the other side “Fascist.” A CLEAR case of that mentally-ill practice of projection here!
What are you scared of Barbara? You don’t want to see our country follow the Constitution and you appearantly have never learned the things that made this country, the greatest on this earth. You have been blessed with great talents in singing and acting so why not thank God for that and quit acting like a horse’sass; Our do you have some more liberal dirt and corruption you want to hide and you see Trump as a block to your greed and stupidity.
When the riots get to her neighborhood and her mansion gets burned down, she’ll be singing a different tune – literally!
Barbara Streisand must have done too many drugs. Her mind is gone. Exactly what is President Trump doing that would make her say that? While the left-media fails to cover the ongoing violent looting and rioting. While the leftists in big tech continue to censor conservatives and Republicans. But then that’s what is in the marxist playbook, accuse your enemies of what you yourself are doing.
