America’s Hitler 2: Electric Boogaloo

Mole’s passionate excoriation of our retard-in-chief should need no further explanation or context, but when one breaks out the Hitler comparisons, there are still many Americans who would cry “foul!” And no, he wasn’t trying to compare our current situation in the U.S. with the full-fledged Third Reich and its sprawling international complex of death camps. He was trying to warn you about how it all starts.

To that end, here are the facts:

  • Prior to usurping the presidency, Donald Trump was a slumlord, a proudly public racist and a fraud. Remember when the current king of crying “harassment!” spent an entire year harassing President Obama with that racist birth certificate bullshit? Of course, you do. Those of you who do not hail from the East Coast: Google Trump’s public statements (and full-page newspaper ad buy) regarding the Central Park Five after they were exonerated by DNA evidence. Better yet, read the recent book published by his niece, Mary, then get back to me and try to defend his status as a human being, let alone a president.
  • 175,000 Covid-19 fatalities and counting – it’ll all go away like a miracle!
  • On John McCain: “I like people who weren’t captured.” On the late John Lewis: “He didn’t come to my inauguration. Nobody has done more for Black Americans than I have. He should have come.” On Q-Anon: “I’ve heard these are people that love our country.
  • Russia’s dictator elevated Trump to the presidency, not the American voters. Period. Still unsure what to think about this because Mueller was a little too “polite” in the wording of his findings? Then take a look at the 1,000 page report issued this week from a Republican-led Senate committee.
  • Trump threw our entire intelligence community under the bus on an international stage and sided instead with…you guessed it, PUTIN.
  • Babies in cages.
  • All of our former alliances across the globe have been squandered in favor of courting dictators. And, ahem – here’s a direct quote from Orangina: “Kim Jong-Un is the head of the country – and he’s the strong head, don’t let anyone think any different. He speaks and his people sit up in attention. I want my people to do the same.”
  • A bald-faced attempt to rig the upcoming election by rigging it himself, screaming that it’s rigged before it even happens, knee-capping the postal service to suppress the vote and threatening to send armed goons to polling places to intimidate brown people. This is happening RIGHT NOW. Oh, and nobody’s done a goddamn thing about Russia yet. Not a thing.
  • Speaking of Russia, they put bounties on our troops to encourage Taliban members to kill them. Our “law and order” (translation: FASCIST) president refuses to address this with his puppet master because he would rather our soldiers DIE than offend his man crush in the Kremlin.
  • William Barr publicly and deliberately mischaracterized the findings of the Mueller report, then proceeded to fire (or attempt to fire) every U.S. attorney working on cases involving Trump or his criminal associates. Trump’s big fat lap dog also choreographed the tear-gassing of peaceful protestors using the military to facilitate a bullshit photo op.
  • “There were very fine people on both sides.” Charlottesville, 2017.
  • When directly questioned about Putin’s brutality to his own people (most recently on the poisoning of Russia’s most prominent dissident), Trump’s go-to answer is “we’re not very innocent, either”. Very true, Asshole – and you’ve done more than anyone to ensure that’s a fitting motto for the United States.
  • None of the above matters one iota to approximately 40% of the American citizenry. That means that 4 out of 10 people I encounter on a daily basis are cowardly, racist authoritarian sycophants. I, for one, would rather die than live in such a selfish, fucked up society. If that sounds like an overreaction, then I demand that you stop quoting Patrick Henry immediately.

Throughout my life, I’ve often pondered the mass insanity of the German populace in the early 1930’s. The most common excuse heard from “decent” Germans after the war was that they “didn’t know it would be so bad” or that “it was just the way things were”. Sorry, Assholes, but that doesn’t cut the mustard for me. I currently view Trumpists in the exact same way, even those who share my last name. I will not accept “we didn’t know” because the facts are screaming in their faces. They just REFUSE to see it. For that, I detest each and every one of them. Not a very enlightened view, I know, but it’s how I feel. I cannot take “the high road” since anything short of pure venom falls on willfully deaf ears in 21st Century America. This is my home and they have destroyed it and I will never forgive anyone who had a part in this.

God bless America.

  1. I heard a fellow on television say that he was in the Trump club no matter what. It’s like any other club – you have to act like the other members and talk like the other members and if you do, you’ll always have a position and status. That’s why Trump’s behavior … they can ignore – it’s not about him anymore. It’s about sticking with their gang.

  2. None of the above matters one iota to approximately 40% of the American…Brilliantly written, above even the bar I have come to expect from you. I have tried to “talk and actually listen” to Trump supports…not in an attempt to persuade them otherwise, but to try to comprehend what’s in their minds. I’ve given up. They don’t make any sense. Or, they parrot what they hear on the RWPM…Right Wing Propaganda Machine, and are fully uncapable of thinking for themselves. “Yea,but what about those Bengazi emails? 4 people died!…” And on it goes…Outrageously sick and pathetic. But this is what happens after a few generations of “dumbing down” the population…

  3. My wife had never registered to vote. Last week she did.

    Unfortunately, where we live, our votes, blue on blue, won’t impact the nation much, if at all. But it’s nice to know she has become so riled up that she must make her opinions known — if only by a single vote.

    I’ve heard it said that for Blue to truly change the country, that we must move out of the fringe at the sea and into the core of the country. Once there, we should calmly advocate for the truth. But, who wants to move to Iowa or Kansas?
