See Trump Grousing That Term Limits Forced His Role Model Out of Power

Michael Bloomberg is a progressive authoritarian who is probably best known nowadays for his fanatical jihad against the Second Amendment. As Mayor of New York, he took petty tyranny to cartoonish extremes; his other jihads have targeted cigarettes, salt, trans fats, soda, soup, food donations, baby formula, escalators, earbuds, Styrofoam, sparklers, and even soda drinking in Mexico. See Gizmodo for more things Bloomberg unnecessarily banned. The political strategy that allowed him to take power in New York entailed switching from the Democratic to the Republican Party. Afterward, he renounced membership in the GOP. Does that remind you of any other New Yorkers?

Speaking of Trump, here is The Donald praising his local prototype Bloomberg, and griping that he was eventually forced out of office by term limits:

Unsurprisingly, considering that he has reversed himself within the past year on virtually everything, Trump now says he likes term limits — for Congress, anyway. But if he won’t except the election results when the election hasn’t even happened yet, imagine how hard it would be to pry him out of the White House. The 22nd Amendment could be in for as rough a ride as the First.

The Awesome Power of Ignorance

The massive power of the Red Army could not conquer America, nor could the Soviet Union’s nuclear arsenal. Ignorance, however, is a more potent force:

A new study found that millennials and the youngest generation (Generation Z) are unfamiliar with past Communist leaders, underestimate the number of people killed under Communism, and support the collectivist ideas of Bernie Sanders.

The cluelessness has reached extremes that would be impossible to parody.

More than a quarter of Americans (26 percent) and almost a full third of millennials (32 percent) said that more people were killed under George W. Bush than Joseph Stalin.

In terms of tyrant body count, Joseph Stalin is second only to his fellow communist Mao Zedong.

Under Stalin, the Soviet Union suffered an estimated 56 to 62 million “unnatural deaths,” with 34 to 49 million directly linked to the dictator. Under Bush, 6,648 U.S. service members died, and the number of Iraqis who died has been variously estimated at 112,114, 122,644, 151,000, and even 655,000. Even the highest number for Bush is roughly 700,000, while the lowest for Stalin would be 34 million.

Deaths in the Soviet Union were a price paid to secure Stalin’s grip on absolute power. Deaths in Iraq were a price paid in an attempt to forestall terror attacks, and to depose a genocidal dictator who had killed as many as half a million.

Already these facts are slipping away into irrelevance, as schools focus on teaching children about white privilege, recycling, and the imaginary menace of anthropogenic global warming.

As a result of this deliberately induced ignorance,

Only half of millennials (55 percent) said Communism was and still is a problem, while a full 80 percent of Baby Boomers said so, along with 91 percent of elderly Americans.

Given a choice between freedom and wealth on one hand versus tyranny and poverty on the other, young people have been taught to prefer the latter:

Younger Americans proved less likely to agree with the capitalist ideas of Milton Friedman than with Bernie Sanders. Only 55 percent of Generation Z and 58 percent of millennials agreed with Friedman, while 71 percent of Generation Z and the same percentage of millennials agreed with Sanders.

Founding Father of communist tyranny Vladimir Lenin gloated:

“Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.”

Leftists have had far more than 4 years to run American education, as well as the media.

A shrinking minority of us know that communism killed 100 million people.

The Kelly–Gingrich Donnybrook

It’s hard to say where the pieces will land when Trump has finished blowing all things right of center to bits on November 8, but good guesses are that Megyn Kelly won’t be working for Fox News after her contract expires next year, and Trump surrogate Newt Gingrich will lay low awhile before he is seen in public:

See the full interview here.

Remember when Democrats excused the felonies Bill Clinton committed on the grounds that they were related to sex and therefore irrelevant? Newt Gingrich, who like Trump is well known for ruthlessly discarding wives and like both Trump and Clinton for cheating on them, finished his term as Speaker of the House the month before Clinton was impeached.

If the “binders full of women” crapola was able to help sink Romney, imagine the mileage Democrats will get out of Trump and his collaborators for elections to come.

Meanwhile Trump, who isn’t even trying to win, has already moved on to the next scam.

Vagina Monologues Found to Be Insufficiently Politically Correct

Sooner or later, totalitarian ideologies always eat themselves, having worked up an insatiable appetite by devouring everything else. For example, you might think that nothing could be more politically correct than feminazi Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues. However, the vulgar moonbat play now qualifies as thoughtcrime:

The Vagina Monologues is “antiquated” because it suggests “that in order to be a woman, you must have a vagina,” an American University student has claimed.

Kendall Baron, a junior and a staffer at the Women’s Initiative, criticized the famous feminist play in an email first obtained by Campus Reform. The play “represents a binary representation of gender,” she wrote redundantly.

The phrase is redundant because gender is by definition binary. If you are XX, you are female and have a vagina. If you are XY, you are male and do not. There are no other options except in grotesque realms of deformity.

American University isn’t the only place The Vagina Monologues has fallen out of favor. Mount Holyoke College won’t perform it because it “is not inclusive of transgender students.” At Columbia University/Barnard College, white women were banned from taking part in a performance.

In a desperate attempt to stay relevant, Ensler protests that she “never defined a woman as a person with a vagina.” That is, despite her play being such a famous example of feminist expression, it is not about women; rather, it is about people with vaginas. But she ensnares herself by admitting that the play excludes women who do not have vaginas, like Bruce Jenner.

Plum Position

What do you mean there are no jobs in the Obama economy? Big Government may smother private sector jobs, but it creates jobs of its own, which are more remunerative and are free of the burden of having to offer some value to society in return for a fat paycheck and lavish benefits. Look how much you can get just for blathering about the importance of not hiring white people:


Whoa: up to $146,570 per year to start, plus all those extravagant federal government bennies, and it isn’t even a supervisory position. No college degree is required. However, only current EPA employees are eligible.

Here’s what diversity and inclusion program specialists do on the rare occasions they aren’t on vacation, taking a 2-hour coffee break, or gawping at porn:

– Independently design, lead and conduct analyses for the Office of Research and Development (ORD) programs which include conducting management reviews and special analyses on short and long range administrative plans;

– Establish and oversee the implementation of ORD’s diversity strategy which includes conducting management reviews and special analyses on existing recruitment, retention, outreach and developmental programs that address diversity and inclusion;

– Initiate collaborative efforts between Minority Academic Institutions and EPA Special Emphasis Program Managers to establish an ORD diversity and inclusion advisory body.

Why shouldn’t a useless agency hire useless employees? Why shouldn’t a government with theoretically infinite access to wealth whose creators haven’t even been born yet pay outlandish salaries?

Top that, private sector!

Content to Let GOP Crash With Him, Trump Calls It Quits on Major Fundraising With 2 Weeks to Go

The Trump campaign confirms that it is crashing — and that it will take the GOP with it:

Trump’s campaign said Tuesday that it has scheduled no more big-money fundraising events to benefit the Republican Party, another sign of the GOP nominee’s struggling campaign and a serious blow to the party’s get-out-the-vote operations with less than two weeks to go until Election Day.

The consequences of halting major fundraisers will compound the challenges facing a candidate and a party already straining to match Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s much larger and better-financed operation.

Remember when Trump told us he was a multibillionaire and would be funding his own campaign? All lies, fortunately for Hillary.

Steven Mnuchin [formerly of Trump fans’ boogeyman Goldman Sachs and Soros Fund Management], Trump’s national finance chairman, said in an interview with The Washington Post on Tuesday that Trump Victory, a joint fundraising committee between the party and the campaign, held its last formal fundraiser on Oct. 19.

“We’ve kind of wound down,” Mnuchin said, referring to formal fundraisers.

Meanwhile the Shrillary campaign continues to rake in the big bucks it takes to win an election:

While Clinton is headlining her last fundraiser Tuesday night, outside Miami, her campaign has scheduled 41 other events between now and Nov. 3 featuring high-profile surrogates such as her daughter, Chelsea, running mate Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) and the entertainer Cher, according to a schedule sent to donors over the weekend.

So what is Trump doing rather than raising funds to keep afloat the party he commandeered?

Trump … is scheduled to leave the campaign trail on Wednesday to attend the official grand opening of his new Trump-branded hotel on Washington’s Pennsylvania Avenue. “I always said I’m getting to Pennsylvania Avenue one way or another,” he quipped as employees behind him laughed.

Trump’s political supporters probably aren’t laughing as hard — since the joke is on them.

Trump’s campaign is continuing to bring in donations that will boost the party, but the lack of a formal fundraising schedule effectively turns off one of the main spigots to the RNC. The national party collected $40 million through Trump Victory as of Sept. 30. The RNC has relied on the funds to help pay for hundreds of field staffers deployed across the country as part of its national ground operation, which is working to turn out voters to support the entire Republican ticket.

That entire Republican ticket is going to get hurt, in part because Trump is toxic, and in part because

there may be a handful of more high-dollar fundraisers in coming days featuring Trump surrogates, including his son Donald Jr., according to people familiar with the internal discussions. But Mnuchin said “there is virtually nothing planned.”

GOP Establishment weenies who actively collaborated (Reince Priebus) or passively went along (Paul Ryan) with Trump’s hostile takeover of the party rather than even attempting to put a stop to it at the convention are now left with egg unhurriedly oozing down their slack-jawed faces. Who knows? Maybe a miracle will occur and they will evolve spines in time to put up resistance to President Shrillary.

Crafty Trump got his publicity; the GOP got screwed.

Canadian Professor: To Paddle in a Canoe Is to Indulge in Genocide, Theft, and White Privilege

To the explosively growing list of what must be shunned to maintain ideological purity we can now add paddling around in a canoe:

According to Misao Dean, Professor of English at the University of Victoria, the canoe can be a symbol of colonialism, imperialism and genocide due to history. She also accused the canoers of cultural appropriation because they are primarily white men and have a privileged place in society.

In a radio interview for CBC Radio, which wasn’t picked [up] by the Internet until several months later, she claimed “we have a whole set of narratives that make the canoe into a kind of morally untouchable symbol, something that seems natural, that seems ordinary, and seems to promote values that we ascribe to.”

“But I think if you look a little further that narrative obscures or erases another narrative—and that narrative is about, to be blunt, it’s about theft and genocide”, the professor said.

Dean went on to accuse canoes of frequently getting paddled by white men, the most odious people imaginable for a liberal academic. She also denounced canoe-paddlers as “frequently highly educated people” — a odd condemnation coming from a supposed educator.

CBC Radio host Jim Brown then asked a question: “Should we look at the canoe as a non-controversial symbol or should we look at it as a symbol of colonialism?”

To which the academic replied: “Absolutely a symbol of colonialism. It seems to me that this narrative we tell ourselves about the canoe about how canoeing makes us in touch with nature, how canoeing makes us in some way guiltless of the terrible things that the Canadian government and Canadians in general did to First Nations people.”

Political correctness is now so repressive that even Justin Trudeau — arguably the quintessential moonbat — can be accused of thought crime:

Berkeley Students Demand Caucasian-Free Spaces and Safe Spaces for Cross-Dressers

Here is how some Affirmative Action admissions to Berkeley spend their time rather than attempting to learn:

Left-wing students at the University of California, Berkeley are protesting again. This time, however, these students are calling for “safe spaces” for transgendered people, as well as “spaces of color” at the University (which they already have).

The protesters are also harassing white students trying to study, barring their path across a key bridge while allowing students of color safe passage.

The protest, which began last Friday, blocked Berkeley’s Sather Gate, disrupted studying students in the Student Union, and blocked traffic at the intersection of Telegraph and Bancroft in front of campus.

In video of the protest, the so-called anti-racism protesters were seen denying passage across the bridge to white students — shouting “go around” — while happily allowing students of color to pass through.

After blocking the bridge, the protesting students moved towards the front of campus to occupy the front of the student store, because they felt it interfered with their “safe spaces”.

The store was served with eviction notices denouncing it for generating profit and threatening that “community action will continue to escalate” if it doesn’t vacate the premises immediately. The demand was justified as “one step in an ongoing process to remedy the historical devaluation of students of color and LGBTQIA+ students.” Seriously.

No matter how much the authorities promote sexual perversion and transsexual freakishness, LGBTXYZPDQ militants will never constitute more than a tiny percentage of the population. But imagine how harmonious this country will be when liberals achieve their holy grail of a nationwide white minority.

Syrian “Refugee” With Four Wives and Almost Two Dozen Children Could Be Making $391,392/Year Off Welfare

Why work for a living when colonizing Europe instead is so much easier and more remunerative?

A Syrian refugee who claims social benefits in Germany with his four wives and 22 children has sparked debates on social media, after the German press brought his story into spotlight.

The man in question, Ghazia A. (the surname is not disclosed) fled Syria in 2015 and headed to Germany via Turkey, accompanied by his four wives and 23 children.

One daughter has left Germany.

Ghazia had to choose one of the women as an “official” wife in order for him and the rest of the family to claim social benefits, the German magazine BILD reported.

Those social benefits are lavish in the extreme:

The story was first broke by the German media outlet Rhein-Zeitung earlier this year. After being published by the respective news outlets, people on social media voiced discontent over the entire family getting social benefits. …

Reacting to the case, a German financial manager released his calculation of what the German state is paying to the entire family annually. On the website of the Employers’ Association he estimated that the refugees are getting roughly 360,000 Euro per year.

That comes to about $391,392. Not bad considering that he has not worked since his arrival.

Germany welcomed some one million refugees in 2015, according to official estimates.

Meanwhile, the German fertility rate is 1.5 children per woman. The replacement rate is 2.1.

The population is being replaced by Muslims imported from the Third World, who do not bring job skills but do bring a hostile alien culture that they have shown no intention of giving up for the sake of assimilation.

An entire nation is committing suicide in the middle of Europe.

The supply of colonists is endless.

ObamaCare Is Forcing Healthcare Premiums Through Stratosphere

Here is what was promised, from an Obama speech on June 6, 2009:

“This week, I conveyed to Congress my belief that any health care reform must be built around fundamental reforms that lower costs, improve quality and coverage, and also protect consumer choice. That means if you like the plan you have, you can keep it. If you like the doctor you have, you can keep your doctor, too. The only change you’ll see are falling costs as our reforms take hold.”

Here is what was delivered:

Premiums will go up sharply next year under President Barack Obama’s health care law, and many consumers will be down to just one insurer, the administration confirmed Monday. …

Before taxpayer-provided subsidies, premiums for a midlevel benchmark plan will increase an average of 25 percent across the 39 states served by the federally run online market, according to a report from the Department of Health and Human Services. …

“Consumers will be faced this year with not only big premium increases but also with a declining number of insurers participating, and that will lead to a tumultuous open enrollment period,” said Larry Levitt, who tracks the health care law for the nonpartisan Kaiser Family Foundation. …

In some states, the premium increases are striking. In Arizona, unsubsidized premiums for a hypothetical 27-year-old buying a benchmark “second-lowest cost silver plan” will jump by 116 percent, from $196 to $422, according to the administration report.

Only the cognitively dysfunctional ever believed that letting leftist bureaucrats gain a stranglehold over the health insurance industry would lower costs. The point was always to force the healthy to pick up the bills for the unhealthy, and ultimately to cause the entire system to collapse so that Big Government could step in to fix the problem it caused by imposing “single payer” — i.e., a full-blown Marxist approach that will inevitably result in severe rationing of healthcare.

If Republicans had nominated anyone vaguely resembling a serious presidential candidate, ObamaCare alone would have handed them the White House on a platter.

Global Warming Theory Debunked: A Record 11 Straight Years Without Cat 3 Hurricane Hitting USA

The USA was hit with four major hurricanes in 2005. In those days, our ears rang from the shrill screams of warmists promising that the hurricanes would become ever more ferocious and numerous if we did not submit to their agenda. Since then, the levels of CO2 in the atmosphere have continued to climb. According to global warming theory, we should be experiencing more severe hurricanes than ever. Yet despite Matthew and Sandy coming close to qualifying, we haven’t had any at all:

[Monday] marks the completion of a record-breaking 11 years without a major hurricane striking the U.S. mainland, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

“I can confirm that as of October 24, 2016, it will be a complete 11 years since a major hurricane has struck the United States, as defined by the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale of being a Category 3 or higher,” meteorologist Dennis Feltgen, spokesman for NOAA’s National Hurricane Center (NHC), told …

Category 3 and higher hurricanes are characterized by sustained wind speeds of 111 mph or more and strong storm surges that are capable of causing “devastating” or “catastrophic” damage.

The current 11-year stretch with no major hurricane striking the United States is the longest since record-keeping began, according to NOAA data going back to 1851.

Sooner or later, carbon emissions or no carbon emissions, another category 3 hurricane will hit the United States. When it does, leftists will shriek that it was caused by global warming driven by CO2, resulting from insufficient taxation and regulation. People will take them seriously.

No worries, moonbats. One will hit eventually.

College Students Taught That Capitalism Is to Blame for Poverty

Nothing in the history of the world has lifted more people out of poverty than capitalism. The solution to poverty is not collectivism, authoritarianism, generosity, or pious thoughts; it is wealth creation. Nothing competes with the free market for wealth creation — just as nothing competes with modern academia for poisoning young minds with corrosive lies:

Students in a sociology class at Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) are required to read a textbook that blames poverty on capitalism and claims that teaching American exceptionalism has “racist overtones.”

The textbook, titled In Conflict and Order: Understanding Society, is required reading for a Principles of Sociology class (S161) at IPFW taught by Robert Pettit, which qualifies as a 3-credit general education requirement and is an introductory course for sociology majors.

Not only does the book tell readers that teaching American exceptionalism has “racist overtones,” but [it] also insists that America’s emphasis on equality is inconsistent with its practices, and even claims that “the basic tenet of capitalism—who gets what is determined by private profit rather than by collective need—explains the persistence of poverty.”

To paraphrase Marx: from each according to their ability, to the government according to the collective need. Enslaving the entire population worked in the Soviet Union — for a while, sort of.

If you like what’s going on in Venezuela right now, you will love the future the liberal intelligentsia has planned for us.

Breitbart Worked With Left-Wing Activist to Bring Down Conservatives on Behalf of Trump

A statist, authoritarian populist progressive like Donald Trump has far more in common with liberals than with conservatives. So it shouldn’t surprise anyone that his enablers have collaborated with one of the same dirty tricksters whose shenanigans on behalf of the Shrillary campaign Project Veritas has brought to light:

A liberal activist and organizer coordinated with reporters from the conservative news site Breitbart during the primaries to cover his disruptions of events for candidates such as Sen. Marco Rubio.

Breitbart is right-wing. Whether it is conservative in any meaningful sense is increasingly open to dispute.

Aaron Black, an associate with Democracy Partners and a former Occupy Wall Street organizer, worked with the pro-Trump site Breitbart, tipping it off about his stunts, exchanging raw video and coordinating coverage, according to a source with direct knowledge of the situation.

Black boasts in a Project Veritas video of organizing protests that led to a Chicago Trump rally getting canceled in March. But he doesn’t always work against Trump.

According to the source, Black coordinated with Breitbart via email, phone and in person, including when he dressed up as a robot and trolled Marco Rubio’s events. The relationship was described as very friendly. An article subsequently published on Breitbart featured video footage of a physical confrontation between Black and Rubio’s New Hampshire campaign chairman.

“He worked directly with Breitbart’s political team on the ground in the primary states to sabotage Marco Rubio & Ted Cruz, and elect Trump as nominee of [the Republican] party,” the source told POLITICO. “[Black] was coordinating with [Breitbart’s] top staff to rabble rouse against Rubio at rallies.”

The “binary choice” B.S. we constantly have rammed down our throats by Trump supporters obviously did not apply back when Breitbart was pushing Trump at the expense of conservatives.

Rubio was likely a common foe for both liberals and Breitbart. As hacked WikiLeaks emails from the Clinton campaign recently revealed, the Clinton campaign feared going up against Rubio in the general election.

Rubio would be winning in a landslide right now. Instead, Shrillary is — and Breitbart chairman Steve Bannon is well-positioned to exploit his position as the Trump campaign CEO to advance his media ambitions.

Australia’s Gun Buy-Back Fails

The willful stupidity of authoritarians who would deny us the fundamental right of self-defense in the name of fighting crime is staggering:

Australia on Friday announced a gun amnesty for next year after a criminal intelligence report estimated there were 260,000 illegal firearms in the country. …

“The amnesty will provide an opportunity for those individuals who, for whatever reason are in possession of an unregistered firearm, to hand it in without fear of being prosecuted,” Justice Minister Michael Keenan told reporters in Melbourne.

“While Australia has some of the strongest [i.e., most repressive] firearm controls in the world, illicit firearms remain the weapon of choice for criminals.”

Firearms are especially useful tools for criminals when they can be relatively sure that their victims will be unarmed, which is why there is no chance of Australia’s desperate amnesty having any positive results.

Unsurprisingly, Australia’s tyrannical gun ban has had very little effect on crime, and despite claims to the contrary, it has not put an end to mass shootings.

Disarming law-abiding citizens does not reduce crime, for reasons that should be obvious. Those who pretend otherwise soon end up making fools of themselves.

Bernadette La Hengst and Nick Nuttall Save the World From Climate Countermoonbattery With a Song

Shrillary and Trump aren’t the only forceful arguments in favor of SMOD. This is what countermoonbats are up against:

This line from the song sums up the mentality of climate commies nicely: “Sharing your things instead of producing.” By “sharing,” leftists generally mean “have them confiscated so we can redistribute them.” That there will be nothing to redistribute after they have prevented everyone from producing never occurs to them until afterward, as we are currently witnessing in Venezuela.

Nick Nuttall does more than prance and sing to keep countermoonbats at bay. He is a UN spokesweenie who has taken a conspicuous role in keeping global warming fraudfests free of skeptical journalists:

If you are a journalist unwilling to be absorbed into the Global Warming Borg, you are most definitely not welcome to report on the upcoming United Nations Climate Change Conference next month in Morocco. For proof of this hostility towards such independent journalists, you need only listen to the incredibly condescending and dismissive tone of the UN spokesperson for that conference, Nick Nuttall, as he is interviewed by the As It Happens host, Carol Off, on CBC Radio.

“Unborn Lives Matter” Determined to Be Bigotry


If you looked at the graphic above, you are obligated to rinse with eye bleach immediately. It is a thoughtcrime, according to the Pashas of Political Correctness who dictate the parameters of permissible thought from their positions in academia. Their righteous fist has come down upon the DePaul College Republicans in Chicago for distributing the image on promotional flyers:

According to University President Rev. Dennis H. Holtschneider, the club was forbidden from using the flyers because they were “bigotry…under the cover of free speech,” meant to “provoke” members of the Black Lives Matter movement.

That is to say, the flyers were considered to blaspheme against the holy (to moonbats) ultra-left BLM movement.

DePaul College Republicans Vice President John Minster told Campus Reform that his group wanted to use the “Unborn Lives Matter” flyers to draw members to their club meetings, but had to submit the design to the Office of Student Involvement for approval. …

Holtschneider not only declined to approve the flyers, but sent a letter to the entire university body explaining that the pro-life posters constituted “bigotry” and were not considered free speech.

At last someone is learning something. Today’s lesson: the word “bigotry” is a cudgel used for silencing dissident points of view.

Incredibly, Doltschneider denounced the pro-life flyers for being “inconsistent with Catholic values.”

Again we see that supposedly Catholic institutions of higher learning couldn’t be much less Catholic if they officially dedicated themselves to the Devil.

Anti-Christian LGBT Blitzkrieg Closes Down Sweet Cakes by Melissa

Cheer up, Gary Johnson. Hardly anyone is voting for you despite the weakest competition ever, but at least Sweet Cakes by Melissa has been destroyed:

After years of court battles, the Christian-owned bakery Sweet Cakes by Melissa is closing its doors.

The Oregon-based company was targeted by LGBT activists when owners Aaron and Melissa Klein said they wouldn’t bake a cake for a gay wedding because of their Christian beliefs.

The subsequent legal battled crippled the bakery. The Kleins had been operating out of their home for the last few years. But now they’ve announced on their Facebook page, “We have closed Sweet Cakes. We appreciate everyone’s continued prayer and support!”

They lost their business to anti-Christian repression, but they didn’t betray their beliefs, so unlike some, they get to keep their souls.

Left-wing authoritarians like Johnson would spin this tragedy as a big win against the boogeyman “discrimination.” LGBT activists must be whooping with triumph. But this is not about discrimination, and militant perverts are expendable tools. For those who impose it, tyranny is its own reward. The victory is particularly sweet when it comes at the expense of tyranny’s historic enemy, Christianity.

Trump-Supporting Dilbert Creator Says He Will Assassinate Trump if He Acts “Hitler-ish”

Dilbert creator and Trump supporter Scott Adams may have made the weirdest case yet in defense of The Donald. The one thing Marx got right is that history repeats itself, first as tragedy, then as farce. If the fascist dictators who rose to power in Europe in the 1930s are the tragedy, Trump would be the corresponding farce. But Adams assures us that despite the obvious similarities in terms of state-micromanaged economics, authoritarianism, suppression of dissent, cult of personality, contempt for rule of law, scapegoating minorities, et cetera, Trump is nothing like Hitler. Here is how he guarantees it:

If Trump gets elected, and he does anything that looks even slightly Hitler-ish in office, I will join the resistance movement and help kill him. That’s an easy promise to make, and I hope my fellow citizens would use their Second Amendment rights to rise up and help me kill any Hitler-type person who rose to the top job in this country, no matter who it is.

Soopermexican isn’t impressed by the threat:

I’m thinking a dude who [uses] words like “Hitler-ish” probably [doesn’t] have what it takes to take on the federal government and take out a despotic president. Hey you remember when Trump said he’d make the military commit crimes against humanity, and if they refused, he’d FORCE them to? Yeah, just a reminder.

If that wasn’t “Hitler-ish,” what would be?

Just to be on the safe side, instead of suing the women who complain about him molesting them, Trump’s first act after taking power ought to be locking up Scott Adams, on the one in a billion chance that the cartoonist isn’t just making a cartoon of himself.
