New York Times Accidentally Compares Trump to FDR

In a shocking development, the New York Times has come out with an editorial denouncing President Trump and urging a vote for Biden.

I won't weary you with the usual cavalcade of lies and identity politics. But the editorial begins with the notable phrase, "Donald Trump’s re-election campaign poses the greatest threat to American democracy since World War II."

Okay, what does that mean?

Lefties like to compare everything to WW2, the last good war. Global warming is the worst crisis since WW2. We must mobilize to meet it like WW2. But at least the analogy is comprehensible. 

What does, "Donald Trump’s re-election campaign poses the greatest threat to American democracy since World War II" even mean?

Is Trump's reelection campaign Hitler, Imperial Japan? But they posed a physical threat, not a threat to "democracy", barring a conquest or invasion. Is that what the Times means? Who knows.

Is the Times referencing the Japanese detentions? FDR's crackdown on political opponents?

How did WW2 pose a threat to "American democracy"?

Elections did go on.

Is the Times suggesting that Trump is FDR? That's the only reasonbable explanation. Probably not what the paper had in mind, but, especially in its woke reincarnation, the Times just runs on rhetoric, without having any idea of what it's talking about or what the rhetoric even means.
