Why Professor Marcus Krebs of Nensingen fears fascism in America – V+ –

US Election Campaign: Marcus Krebs has lived in the US for over 30 years. VOL.AT spoke via video call with the political scientist and head of the “International Affairs” Institute at the University of Georgia in Athens.

As revealed in a detailed interview by Professor Marcus Krebs, president of the University of Georgia's Institute of International Affairs, American politics faces important decisions.

In an interview with VOL.AT, Professor Krebs provided deep insights into the current political developments in the United States, affecting both domestic and foreign policy.

Donald Trump and he is portrayed as a “victim”.

Professor Krebs describes Trump as a polarizing figure who retains a strong following despite controversial events such as the Capitol storm. He explains: “They also see Trump as a victim. He plays this role in all his channels.” Krebs also points to Trump's ability to identify with marginalized groups and use his victimhood to rally support.

Democrats and Joe Biden: Challenges and Opportunities

For Democrats, the conversation centers on Joe Biden. Professor Krebs looks at Biden's presidency from an international perspective and highlights challenges such as the immigration issue and Biden's stance on Israel and Gaza.

Social media and campaign strategies

Another central topic of the interview was social media and its role in American politics. Prof. Krebs criticizes the influence of social media on political opinion formation and information: “That's a big problem. It's kind of paradoxical. We've never had more access to information, and we've never been more ignorant than at this moment. .”

Attitudes in universities

Finally, Professor Krebs sheds light on the state of mind among students at the University of Georgia. He talks about the growing disillusionment and pessimism among students about the political situation and possible future developments.

Is Donald Trump “a man of the people”?

Professor Krebs elaborates on the continued presence and influence of Donald Trump in the Republican Party. Despite his polarizing nature, Trump retains a significant following, he insists. Krebs explains: “Trump has managed to present himself as a 'man of the people,' despite coming from a very privileged position.” This contradiction highlights the complexity of Trump's political appeal.

Another aspect Krebs highlights is Trump's ability to communicate his messages. “He knows how to speak directly to his followers through social media, without traditional media as an intermediary,” says Krepas. This direct communication style helped Trump maintain and mobilize a loyal base.

Future prospects under Trump's influence

Professor Krebs is thoughtful about the future of the Republican Party and American politics under Trump's influence. He notes: “The question is whether Trump's style of politics will be the norm or whether the party can break away from it.” The uncertainty reflects divisions within the party and the difficulty of shaping a future beyond Trump's shadow. If Donald Trump takes office for a second term, there will be plenty of legitimate reasons to worry. “I've lived in America for over 30 years and it's scary how many people say the word fascism without batting an eyelid.”
