Trump Lets Loose His Brownshirts

April 22, 2020

Slide1

Just like Hitler’s fanatics, the white nationalist thugs are out in force (literally) sporting semi-automatic weapons and wearing MAGA gear. Members of the neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement, the neo-fascist street gang The Proud Boys, and white supremacist pseudo-militia groups such as Patriot Front, have been identified as organizers and leaders of the protests “against the Democrat-driven unconstitutional lockdown,” as they call it. Fueled by Agent Orange’s demands to “liberate” Democratic states enforcing ‘shelter in place’, these groups have not only been inciting general protests, but also accosting and vilifying medical workers who are trying to treat victims of COVID-19 infection, along with their other patients. This disgusting behavior is exactly what we have been expecting from this would-be dictator and his violent bully-boys.

The Death of an Ideal … the Disgrace of a Country

November 9, 2016

When Adolph Hitler was elected Chancellor of Germany in 1933, many human ideals died. His reign of terror lasted for less than 12 years, yet many millions of lives were lost and the humanistic and political repercussions still echo today. Although Germany has recovered much of its former luster as a nation of strength and intelligence, there still remains the taint of the Third Reich.

Hitler had his Brown Shirts and the support of many German citizens who made hate their primary agendas. Donald Trump has the white supremacist groups, including the KKK and American Nazi Party, who support his election. While it is doubtful that he can do the same damage to the world, the essential principles remain the same.

Make no mistake: I believe that Hillary Clinton was also a potential presidential disgrace. She is a privileged, smug, self-entitled, corrupt, cynical representative of a “business as usual” governmental process. But she is not a maniac who would deliberately lead her country into a battle of religious and ethnic bigotry that could lead to another world war—one that could involve nuclear weapons.

There are many ideals that died today. Religious, racial and sexual tolerance. Human equality. The quest for a peaceful solution to human problems rather than the radical methods that Trump has espoused during his campaign. And more.

Throughout the world, this will be seen as a very similar disgrace as to what Germany experienced during and after the Hitler regime. I can only hope that the following decades do not bewail the same aftermaths in America with the rise to power of Donald Trump.
