“A people that elect corrupt politicians, imposters, thieves and traitors are not victims… but accomplices.” Misattributed to Orwell.
“Those who now call themselves conservatives are either liberals, fascists or the accomplices of fascists,” Orwell wrote in “Rudyard Kipling.”
These two sentences call to me.
The first one presuppose that people are responsables of theirs votes. It evokes Trump for em.
The second one is harsh but more and more true. Warning: here " liberals " must be taken in its European economic acceptation, not its modern US sense. May be libertarians would give a better idea.
A French Newspaper says that : " According to a poll released this week, conducted jointly by the Washington Post and the University of Maryland, 25 percent of Americans say it is “probably” or “definitely” true that the FBI was behind the January 6, 2021 attack on the US Capitol."
Biden is a conservative. Jan 6th conspirators runs deep within the republican party, law makers and the military. Instead of exposing them and informing the public of the problem, Biden calls for unity
When he denies having read Hitler it shows how he doesn’t listen to people around him. He has been told Hitler said it, what else does he need to know? He knows it’s a ridiculous thing to say, that blood is not poisoned, that DNA makeup doesn’t alter ideas and values, but he keeps saying it. Only one reason, it gets votes.
Biden presenting himself and the Democratic Party as defenders of democracy is utterly fraudulent and calling out trump while committed to a genocide in gaza and the spread of a regional war is utterly contemptible.
You haven’t actually studied much politics have you?
Yes, one man can make a world of difference.
Of course, this particular con-man is enabled by an awful lot of deep pocketed White Christian Supremacists and corporate oligarchs that don’t give a damned about anything but enriching themselves.
But none of that bothers you.
You are insulted because Biden makes comparisons with trump & Hitler.
Those comparisons are driven by what The Criminal Defendant Trump is saying.
Oh and I love ya gotta love his denial,
and I never read ‘Mein Kampf,’” Trump said.
I had to laugh at that, it’s common knowledge The Criminal Defendant Trump, hates reading, in fact it’s questionable that he can read past the 8th grade reading proficiency standards. There’s always audiobook and of course there’s his trusted advisor his “brain-trust” Stephen Miller.
Stephen Miller is credited with shaping the racist and draconian immigration policies of President Trump, which include the zero-tolerance policy, also known as family separation, the Muslim ban and ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Miller has also “purged” government agencies of civil servants who are not entirely loyal to his extremist agenda, according to a report in Vanity Fair. …
… Through the conscious use of fearmongering and xenophobia, Miller implements policies which demonize immigrants, regardless of their immigration status, in an apparent effort to halt all forms of immigration to the United States.
In response to seeing photos of children being separated from their parents at the U.S. border with Mexico as a result of the zero-tolerance policy, an external White House adviser, in a Vanity Fair report, said, “Stephen actually enjoys seeing those pictures at the border.” According to Miller, the administration’s decision to institute the policy was “a simple decision.” …
… During this time, Miller influenced the editorial direction of the highly trafficked conservative website Breitbart.com, sharing white nationalist and anti-immigrant propaganda with their editors in an effort to buoy Trump’s run, according to leaked emails reviewed by Hatewatch**.** His role in the campaign included crafting then-candidate Trump’s nativist immigration platform, writing campaign speeches as well as being the opening speaker during rallies.
At a June 16, 2016, campaign rally in Dallas, Miller’s speech made clear the campaign then-candidate Trump was going to run and foreshadowed the nativist policies Miller and the administration would eventually pursue. …
Hmmm, I am concerned about the MAGA crowd’s increasing comfort with totalitarian leadership and excitement with the thought of destroying American norms and the concept of pluralism - which America is founded on (regardless of how imperfect in execution).
MAGA crowd doesn’t want to think, they have a binary mental all or nothing - me above others.
It’s those rationalists and patriotic American who remain invested to Democratic ideals and in our principles of pluralism, and who want to work within a government of checks and balances (even if imperfect). Those are the one’s who need to take this seriously.
Those are the one’s this message is for!
Besides anything less then calling out the Criminal Defendant Trump’s traitorous anti-American beliefs and speech - and pointing out that he definitely embraces Hitler’s thinking, whether he learned about it through an educational cartoon, or someone reading to him, or a ghost writer like Stephen Miller.
Here’s a couple blasts from the past. The Criminal Defendant Trump’s ghost writer is every bit as scary as these 2019 observations:
… In response to the news that Miller was pushing for more extremist officials to run Immigration and Customs Enforcement, an agency under DHS, Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar tweeted: “Stephen Miller is a white nationalist. The fact that he still has influence on policy and political appointments is an outrage.” Some of Omar’s critics took the moment as an opportunity to make a peculiar attack: Donald Trump Jr., Breitbart writers, and New York Representative Lee Zeldin condemned her as an anti-Semite for calling a Jewish member of the Trump administration a white nationalist. But as Wisconsin Representative Mark Pocan pointed out, none did so when he levied the very same charge against Miller last year.
Omar, of course, isn’t alone here. Even those close to Miller have made the same observation. Miller’s own uncle has said his draconian policies would have doomed their Jewish refugee ancestors to death in pogroms. …
