“Fascism” is just one of many loaded words that seems to be thrown around too much these days. Whether or not the label can be rightly applied to anyone in the American political sphere, it is undeniable that totalitarian tendencies do rear their head in some aspects of civilian life.

Isn’t it good to be back? The summer has finally simmered down, you’ve moved into your new place, and you’re ready to tackle a new semester. But while you’re thinking about how excited you are to see your friends and maybe even hit up Five Points a few times, let’s get real for a second: do you know why you’re here? If you’re not sure, you should probably drop out.
A new semester is starting up across campus, and just like every August, a million things may look the same, but a million things are different.
With all the turmoil surrounding allegations of racism in the Trump White House, the ever-truthful Sarah Huckabee Sanders held a press conference Tuesday afternoon that seemed to set the record straight. Specifically, she addressed news of former aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman saying she recorded Trump saying the n-word.
The second Unite the Right rally, which took place in Washington, D.C. this August, was a dismal failure for far-right organizations across the country. The tiny group of two dozen marchers was vastly outnumbered by counter-protesters, to the point that some counter-protesters never even saw any white nationalists.
In the wake of the shocking death of Maryland football player Jordan McNair, South Carolina coach Will Muschamp came out strongly against the handling of the incident based on a report put out by ESPN. The report, detailing an allegedly toxic environment at Maryland and the culpability of head coach DJ Durkin in the tragic death of McNair, utilized many anonymous sources, something Muschamp took issue with.
The power is finally back on in Puerto Rico – well, sort of. 11 months after Hurricanes Irma and Maria struck the island and knocked out power to the majority of its residents and killed roughly 1,400 American citizens, power has been restored to the last customers of PREPA, Puerto Rico’s government run power company.
On Sunday and Monday, Apple, Facebook, Google, Spotify and even Pinterest made moves against conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ content hosted on their platforms. Apple removed five of Jones’ six podcasts, Facebook banned four of Jones’ pages, YouTube (owned by Google) deleted Jones’ channel, Spotify removed one of his podcasts and Pinterest banned his account. Jones and his supporters, somewhat predictably, were outraged.
“Impeachment” seems to be the word of the hour, even if it only means the indictment of charges against the president and not necessarily his removal from office. Trump’s entire presidency, including the Russian interference with our elections, his incessant need to alienate our allies and his love of foreign dictators comes across like a fictional television show or dystopian novel.
With only a few weeks left of summer, students are starting to think about all the details that go into starting the semester at a large university. With that comes the daunting task of figuring out how to cobble together tuition with newly-won scholarships, loans and grants. All that to understand what comes out-of-pocket.
Nobody knew trade could be so complicated!
The Fourth of July has come and passed and children are still separated from their families. Much has been said about how the policy of tearing families apart, and detaining young children in what can only be described as cages is an affront to the ideals of our nation. The whole business is utterly cruel. While the policy itself has been suspended by the Trump administration and a deadline for the return of the children has been set by the courts, the fact that it even happened in the first place is ridiculous. Former first ladies, Holocaust survivors and international leaders have all harshly criticized the policy, and their concerns resonate with a majority of Americans.
If you've checked your student email account in the last few weeks – it’s summer break, so you probably didn’t – and happened to peek into your “Clutter” inbox, you were greeted by a little email from Student Health Services. When I first saw the email myself, I was puzzled, and the opening line seemed to echo my confusion. “What is happening?", it said in an unnecessarily bold font.
The Trump administration’s handling of this month’s immigration scandal involving detaining children and separating them from their parents was nothing short of abysmal. Never mind that the executive order ending the practice spelled the word “separation” wrong, the president also changed his position on the topic fourteen times before signing the executive order that he originally denied was possible.
Finances are always a sore subject — especially among college students. For many of us, our budgets are pretty tight with very little money to spare at the end of each month. (If I had a nickel for every time I said I was “having sleep for dinner” instead of paying for a meal, I probably wouldn’t ever have to do that again). Keeping up with regular bills (rent, insurance, groceries, etc.) is difficult as is; having to deal with random, irregular expenses can be a nightmare.
Mark Sanford was no stranger to elections, but, for the first time in his career, he suffered a defeat because of something it once would have been hard to accuse him of — not being conservative enough.
Look out, South Carolina! A new candidate for governor will change the face of our state. This person is a maverick, never afraid to stand up to the establishment in Columbia and is in touch with the working class, despite being a very white and affluent native. If you vote for this suit-clad individual, they will reduce the size of government, along with your taxes, and promise to kowtow to the Trump administration you most likely voted for in 2016!
America and capitalism are so closely intertwined in the popular mind that the two are basically synonymous. McDonald’s and Walmart are national symbols just as much as the Statue of Liberty and Mt. Rushmore.
This year’s G7 summit is over and did not go well for the President. The meeting of leaders of world powers has been marked by Trump’s roundly-denounced recommendation that Russia be allowed to attend the summit, as well as French President Emanuel Macron’s suggestion that the nations convene a G6 summit without the United States.
You are not reading this in a print edition of The Daily Gamecock. Chances are you're not even reading it on a desktop. Nope, you're probably on a phone, laptop or tablet. You were probably brought here by a tweet or a Facebook post. That's the reality of media in 2018.
