[See NewsBusters for more.] MSNBC's Brian Williams was joined by author and professor Timothy Snyder on Friday night where Williams used his guest's 2017 book On Tyranny to argue that the United States under President Trump is slipping into authoritarianism. Williams' proof? Military parades and federal law enforcement in Portland.
Williams praised Snyder's allegedly prophetic book, "Your book enumerates so much of what we've seen, and I should hasten to add before we saw it, buildings with the leaders' name on them, military parades and on and on, it also enumerates the sight we have now seen in Portland, Oregon, militarized, all but anonymous, camouflaged federal agents, in quotes, when they first went to work grabbing people into unmarked vehicles, I know that got your attention."
