Having read with great interest Professor Leonard Piekoff's 1982 book The Ominous Parallels it has been clear, at least to me, the United States of America has in fact been trending towards a more state controlled fascistic economic and political system for many years. While one can make the observation and assertion, with some validity, that the liberal left bears some responsibility for this trend, given todays political reality it is virtually impossible to not recognize the political right is pushing America towards fascism at an almost breakneck speed.
Republican (presumptive) presidential nominee Donald J. Trump (Drumpf) is the natural result of the rightwing's long march towards acceptance of fascism in America. Certainly the signs are many, for anyone truly interested and paying attention to both history and the current political environment that has lead to the rise of Trump.
Take the time to read the following linked article, Our Memorial Day collision course with fascism: Donald Trump and the new American militarism. While anyone may question a few specifics, the conclusions drawn by the author are spot on. An excellent read at the end of a solemn Memorial Day weekend.
