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.”

Barbra needs her basement where she hides out between Paranoid Public appearances.
Yes, and if that happened, THEN she would leave America and go to Australia or another country where she could be free.
When the riots get to her neighborhood and her mansion gets burned down, she'll be singing a different tune - literally!
Thank You, Dawn.
Another one to join Clinton in the woods.
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.
Don and Babs deserve each other - uneducated Yanks! 🤔 😱
China doesn't want to listen to her and neither does Israel...
