    Now if only people like Andy Ngo were just as concerned about Authoritarianism when it's coming from people in positions of political power. Seems like the Right only cares about Authoritarianism when it's coming from random citizens.

    Trump said it should be illegal to burn the American flag, which goes against freedom of speech. He got caught trying to cheat in the 2020 election with the Ukraine Scandal, now he's talking about using an Executive Order to prevent his political opponent from running for president. He also encouraged people to commit voter fraud, while ironically using the fear of voter fraud as justification to sabotage the post office.

    This is one of the big differences between the Left and the Right. When Leftists act authoritarian, it's always just some random dipshits with no real political power. But when Rightists act authoritarian, it's often elected officials that have huge support on the Right. This is because the Left as a political school is based on Democracy, while the Right is based on an opposition to Democracy.
