The Great Equivalency

A Response to the Apologist George Will

George Will, in a recent article equating Trumps lies with all politicians’ political behavior, falls into the “false equivalency” trap.

This was done because the corporatists thought that Germany was headed to communism and that between communism and fascism they were equal threats; they chose fascism.
