Trump: The real threat to America

Donald Trump: Sieg Heil?
Donald Trump: Sieg Heil?

“America First” is what Donald Trump claims.

“When I am president, it will always be America first,” he says.

Trump, as most of us with an IQ of that above an average plant, knows Trump lies just about every time he opens his mouth.

He also invokes a statement that Nazi sympathizers in the 1930s used to promote their views of life and a style of government they promoted.

“America über alles” the Nazi lovers liked to say back then.

When Trump says “America first,” he is really saying “me first.”  Trump is a megalomaniac of immense proportions, a con artist extreme and, in our opinion, a growing threat to the America that most of us know and love.

He represents the worst of human conditions:  Hate, greed and an unbridled lust for power over everything he touches.

He is a monster in our midst, a terrorist of the first order and a true enemy of America.

Republicans who tried, reluctantly, to embrace him as their nominee for President, now run for cover from his antics.  With each new pronouncement, Trump emerges as a killer clown, Batman’s Joker and an American fuhrer.

Americans often are slow to see the monster in their midst but seem to be waking up to Trump’s madness.  A recent rally in Richmond, Virginia, drew a small crowd.  The enthusiasm of Trump cultists is fading.

Trump’s “America first” is a white, racist America.

We saw the results of the “America first” movement in the 1930s, complete with media baron William Randolph Hearst who used the slogan to praise the “liberty loving people” of Nazi Germany.

Hearst called President Franklin Roosevelt “un-American to the core” and compared the New Deal to communism.

In 1940, supporters of Hearst formed the America First Committee, which honored Charles Lindbergh, an enthusiast of fascism who proudly wore a medal presented to him by Herman Goering “in the name of the Fuehrer.”

Eric Fauchway, professor of history at the University of California, writes in today’s Washington Post:

The general idea of “America First” remains the same: The United States should arm itself against foreign threats and stay within carefully defined borders, using the might of the state only to defend a very specific, rather white idea of “America” that excludes certain racial and religious minorities. Then, as now, the phrase offered strength through cowardice. Defeating this defeatism was essential to victory over dictatorships in the 20th century, and it is essential to preserving the institutions of democracy today.

Donald Trump shouts loud and hard about “threats” to America.

He fails to admit that he is the biggest threat of all.

  1. It’s quickly becoming clear to a growing electorate that the orange man Donald Trump is an intellectually deficient racist pig and an egomaniacal madman.

    Believe me, OK!

  2. I have to say this is the most enjoyable election cycle I have ever experienced. And I am very glad we have free speech in this country. Trump is saying things that people take personally and get people angry, and that is what great free speech is all about…to challenge people and get them to respond, even if that makes people uncomfortable and upset.

  3. Is Trump the problem or merely the symptom of the problem? Trump didn’t just declare himself King. 85% of the Republican party supports him. They support his policies, the racist ones in particular, and are willing to ignore all of his shortcomings in order to see those policies enforced.

    They are entirely likely to get their asses collectively whupped in the next election, but that will not settle the issue. The toxic collection of unreconstructed confederates, bible-thumping religious demagogues, right-wing anarchists and states rights nullifiers are not going anywhere.

    They are heavily armed and dangerous. I am not confident that peace and tranquility are in our future. We are in the end-times of a slow-motion insurrection that has been going on since Reagan declared that the big problem with the US was the government.

    The next 5 months are going to be brutal.
