This just in: Growing up, I wondered how someone like Hitler was able to rise to power. It seemed unlikely that everyone would just stand around and do nothing.
Now I understand. I understand because Trump is our very own version of Hitler. He’s consolidating his power.
And…we just stand around doing nothing.
Now I know that the term “Hitler” is a bit overused but I think it’s appropriate for Trump. Yes, there are some differences. Trump hasn’t invaded Poland, yet. Trump has not killed 6 million Jews.
However, if you view the “Hitler” reference as someone that a nation’s leader, is highly corrupt, extremely nationalistic, preaches populist propaganda, blames other (specifically, non-whites and non-Christians) for the country’s problems….then Trump is very Hitler.
Within the last couple of weeks, China granted Trump’s daughter “5 valuable trademarks”. China also agreed to finance $500,000,000 of a Trump resort in Indonesia. Then…in what Trump calls an unrelated event, he lifts sanctions on a China telecom company that was spying on the United States. He gives no reason for this other than “saving jobs in China.”
People have marvelled that Trump’s claim of being able to stand on 5th Ave. in New York and shooting a person would not cost him votes. Turns out this is true. Why? Because racists see him as their legitimizer. He makes their hate real and mainstream. He hates along with them and for this…they will forgive anything.
If Trump did a press conference and spoke for the heart about the evils of racism, that would cost him more votes than if he had every third person in Congress hung.
He got into office, not on his policies but on the promise that he would purge the country of non-white and and non-Christian people.
I could right a book about the corruption but that has already been done; several times.
He’s openly racist.
He’s openly corrupt.
We all know this. In fact, everyone in the world knows this.
And, we stand by and do nothing.
Up, up and away…
