Donald Trump is like a real life version of The Manchurian Candidate except born in America and likely not brainwashed and paid by outside forces to run for office. And depending on what side they're on, the mainstream and liberal media showcase facts that he is a racist, misogynist, LGBTphobic, xenophobic, anti-poor, islamophobic bigot who has no political experience and should not become president, while Conservative media says "oh you're just taking it all out of context he never said that!" (after we see LIVE VIDEO PROOF that he did,) or even some of their correspondents denounce his Republican status, denounce his American status, (usually if the source is Libertarian,) and urge you to vote for anyone else or even not vote at all. While the Alt-Cons of the internet swear up and down that he's the absolute best choice we could possibly have, anybody who disagrees is an SJW "cuck" or hippie letting people walk all over them, and some even admit he is a bigot and praise him for it. Some of them even black, female or in Milo Yiannopoulos' case, gay! Isn't that like a Mexican voting for Bush? Or the Christian joining the Tali Ban? Just dumb really.
But beyond the severe misogyny, the unapologetic racism and islamophobia, the casual LGBTphobia, his views on the poor and how he thinks anybody of brown skin is an illegal immigrant only here to sell drugs and rape people, the thing I'm most afraid of when it comes to Trump is the probability of him starting a new axis of evil. I'm serious about this.
Now of course there is the possibility of Trump just being a bad president and each and every consecutive decision he makes getting vetoed, or he gets impeached on his first catastrophic decision, or maybe there could be the more cartoon like possibility of someone in congress paying an assassin to murder him just to further force him out of the oval office permanently. (that last one isn't very likely though,) if we're lucky he could turn out to be George W. Bush with a broader vocabulary. Which would still be awful but at least not s apocalyptic. There could be an extremely slim chance of him playing his own voter base for fools, and doing none of what he promised as well. Which would make him a conservative Democrat in conservative Republican's clothing. But the likelihood of him being the worst president since W, biggest threat to social justice since McCarthy and most tyrannical force since Hitler, are still much broader possibilities if he becomes president.
Let's just start with the Hitller comparisons. Like how he wants to build a wall across the Mexican border and seal out an entire portion of the continent, all because of the drug lords and rapists and other violent stereotypes. Which Trump claimed Mexico is bringing to the country rather than their best. And, he wants to ID Muslims and even kick them out of the country simply because of the terrorists. Doesn't all that xenophobia seem familiar? Here's a history lesson from Yad Vashem.
"The Rise of the Nazis to Power in GermanyHitler and the Nazi Party rose to power due to the social and political circumstances that characterized the interwar period in Germany. Many Germans could not concede their country’s defeat in World War I, arguing that “backstabbing” and weakness in the rear had paralyzed and, eventually, caused the front to collapse. The Jews, they claimed, had done much to spread defeatism and thus destroy the German army. Democracy in the Weimar Republic, they argued, was a form of governance that had been imposed on Germany and was unsuited to the German nature and way of life. They construed the terms of the Versailles peace treaty and the steep compensation payments that it entailed as revenge by the victors and a glaring injustice. This frustration, together with intransigent resistance and warnings about the surging menace of Communism, created fertile soil for the growth of radical right-wing groups in Germany, spawning entities such as the Nazi Party.
In 1925, a transitory economic upturn and a promising political dialogue brought relative calm into sight. However, the severe international economic crisis that erupted in 1929 carried the instability to new heights.
In 1919, Adolf Hitler, a released soldier wounded in WWI, joined a small and insignificant group called theNational Socialist Party. He became the group’s leader and formulated the racial and antisemitic principles in its charter. In 1923 party activists led a revolt and tried to seize power in Munich, but failed. Hitler was imprisoned, during which time he wrote his venomous book Mein Kampf (My Struggle), in which he expressed his ideas about racial theory and Nazi global dominion. Hitler realized that he must employ legitimate democratic means in his struggle to seize power. However, he and his associates left no doubt about their belief in democratic freedoms as mere tools with which power might be attained. After his release Hitler reorganized the party.
In the 1924 Reichstag elections, the Nazi Party received three percent of the votes cast and was represented in the parliament by fourteen delegates. In the 1928 elections, its support declined; the party was able to send only twelve delegates to the legislature. The turnaround came in 1930, the first elections after the economic crisis began. Surprisingly, the Nazis received 18.3 percent of the vote and sent 107 delegates to the Reichstag, the German Parliament. In July 1932, with 230 mandates, they became the largest faction in the House — a political force that made an impact and acceded to power legitimately. President Paul von Hindenburg gave Hitler the mandate to form a government, and Hitler became Chancellor on January 30, 1933.
The Beginning of the Persecution of Jews in GermanyIn the 1930s, Germany’s Jews – some 500,000 people – made up less than one percent (0.8%) of the German population. Most considered themselves loyal patriots, linked to the German way of life by language and culture. They excelled in science, literature, the arts, and economic enterprise. 24% of Germany’s Nobel Prize winners were Jewish. However, conversion, intermarriage, and declining birth rates, led some to believe that Jewish life was doomed to disappear from the German scene altogether.
The paradox was that Nazi ideology stemmed from Germany and the German people, among whom Jews eagerly wanted to acculturate. Indeed, there was a widespread belief amongst many Jews in the illusion that the role they played within industry and trade and their contributions to the German economy would prevent the Germans from completely excluding them.
Nazi anti-Jewish policy functioned on two primary levels: legal measures to expel the Jews from society and strip them of their rights and property while simultaneously engaging in campaigns of incitement, abuse, terror and violence of varying proportions. There was one goal: to make the Jews leave Germany.
On March 9, 1933, several weeks after Hitler assumed power, organized attacks on Jews broke out across Germany. Two weeks later, the Dachau concentration camp, situated near Munich, opened. Dachau became a place of internment for Communists, Socialists, German liberals and anyone considered an enemy of the Reich. It became the model for the network of concentration camps that would be established later by the Nazis. Within a few months, democracy was obliterated in Germany, and the country became a centralized, single-party police state.
On April 1, 1933, a general boycott against German Jews was declared, in which SA members stood outside Jewish-owned stores and businesses in order to prevent customers from entering.
Approximately one week later, a law concerning the rehabilitation of the professional civil service was passed. The purpose of the legislation was to purge the civil service of officials of Jewish origin and those deemed disloyal to the regime. It was the first racial law that attempted to isolate Jews and oust them from German life. The first laws banished Jews from the civil service, judicial system, public medicine, and the German army (then being reorganized). Ceremonial public book burnings took place throughout Germany. Many books were torched solely because their authors were Jews. The exclusion of Jews from German cultural life was highly visible, ousting their considerable contribution to the German press, literature, theater, and music.
In September 1935 the “Nuremberg Laws” were passed, stripping the Jews of their citizenship and forbidding intermarriage between Jews and non-Jews. Jews were banned from universities; Jewish actors were dismissed from theaters; Jewish authors’ works were rejected by publishers; and Jewish journalists were hard-pressed to find newspapers that would publish their writings. Famous artists and scientists played an important role in this campaign of dispossession and party labeling of literature, art, and science. Some scientists and physicians were involved in the theoretical underpinnings of the racial doctrine."
Do you really want that to happen to Latinos and Muslims? And if you do, do you think that anybody brown should die and suffer for the actions of terrorists even if they are of no relation to the terrorists? I'd almost feel sorry for you if you do want every Muslim to be punished over ISIS and every Latino to be shut out of the country because of The Latin Kings. That's like shutting out white people because of the KKK or IDing blacks because of the Boko Haram. It would be STUPID.
What about Donald Trump's rise? He popularized the birther movement when Barack Obama first started running for president asking him for his birth certificate, swearing up and down that he's a Kenyan Muslim, he built a movement on hate and xenophobia and leached off the anger of the racist end of blue collar workers sick and tired of the current establishment, rose to power based solely on threats and xenophobic rants fueled by xenophobic rage, beat out actual politicians (and one doctor) to become the Republican nominee, and if he wins, will basically be an angry ranting raving tyrant with no political history until now bordering out any foreigners and IDing an entire religion to segregate. Hmm. Doesn't that seem familiar? This is from The US Holocaust Memorial Museum.
"In the early 1930s, the mood in Germany was grim. The worldwide economic depression had hit the country especially hard, and millions of people were out of work. Still fresh in the minds of many was Germany's humiliating defeat fifteen years earlier during World War I, and Germans lacked confidence in their weak government, known as the Weimar Republic. These conditions provided the chance for the rise of a new leader, Adolf Hitler, and his party, the National Socialist German Workers' Party, or Nazi party for short.
Hitler was a powerful and spellbinding speaker who attracted a wide following of Germans desperate for change. He promised the disenchanted a better life and a new and glorious Germany. The Nazis appealed especially to the unemployed, young people, and members of the lower middle class (small store owners, office employees, craftsmen, and farmers).
The party's rise to power was rapid. Before the economic depression struck, the Nazis were practically unknown, winning only 3 percent of the vote to the Reichstag (German parliament) in elections in 1924. In the 1932 elections, the Nazis won 33 percent of the votes, more than any other party. In January 1933 Hitler was appointed chancellor, the head of the German government, and many Germans believed that they had found a savior for their nation
KEY DATESJUNE 28, 1919
TREATY OF VERSAILLES ENDS WORLD WAR I
In the Treaty of Versailles, which followed German defeat in World War I, the victorious powers (the United States, Great Britain, France, and other allied states) impose severe terms on Germany. Germany, under threat of invasion, is forced to sign the treaty. Among other provisions, Germany accepts responsibility for the war and agrees to make huge payments (known as reparations), limit its military to 100,000 troops, and transfer territory to its neighbors. The terms of the treaty lead to widespread political discontent in Germany. Adolf Hitler gains support by promising to overturn them.
OCTOBER 24, 1929
STOCK MARKET CRASH IN NEW YORK
The plummet in the value of stocks that is associated with the New York stock market crash brings a rash of business bankruptcies. Widespread unemployment occurs in the United States. The "Great Depression," as it is called, sparks a worldwide economic crisis. In Germany, six million are unemployed by June 1932. Economic distress contributes to a meteoric rise in the support for the Nazi party. As a result, the Nazi party wins the votes of almost 40 of the electorate in the Reichstag (German parliament) elections of July 1932. The Nazi party becomes at this point the largest party in the German parliament.
NOVEMBER 6, 1932
NAZIS LOSE SUPPORT IN PARLIAMENTARY ELECTIONS
In the Reichstag (German parliament) elections of November 1932, the Nazis lose almost two million votes from the previous elections of July. They win only 33 percent of the vote. It seems clear that the Nazis will not gain a majority in democratic elections, and Adolf Hitler agrees to a coalition with conservatives. After months of negotiations, the president of Germany, Paul von Hindenburg, will appoint Hitler chancellor of Germany in a government seemingly dominated by conservatives on January 30, 1933."
And what about how Kim Jong Un likes him and how Trump seems willing to work with him. And how Trump might be in cahoots with Putin even encouraged Russian hackers to hack into Hillary's Email. Let's not forget how North Korea is totalitarian and isolated, and how Russia is politically corrupt to the point where the countries they annexed are trying to leave them. Hmm! Sounds familiar doesn't it? This is from The US Holocaust Memorial Museum.
"There were two major alliances during World War II: the Axis and the Allies.
The three principal partners in the Axis alliance were Germany, Italy, and Japan. These three countries recognized German domination over most of continental Europe; Italian domination over the Mediterranean Sea; and Japanese domination over East Asia and the Pacific. The Allied Powers were led by Great Britain, the United States, and the Soviet Union
Although the Axis partners never developed institutions to coordinate foreign or military policy as the Allies did, the Axis partners had two common interests: 1) territorial expansion and foundation of empires based on military conquest and the overthrow of the post-World War I international order; and 2) the destruction or neutralization of Soviet Communism.
On November 1, 1936, Germany and Italy, reflecting their common interest in destabilizing the European order, announced a Rome-Berlin Axis one week after signing a treaty of friendship. Nearly a month later, on November 25, 1936, Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan signed the so-called Anti-Comintern Pact directed at the Soviet Union. Italy joined the Anti-Comintern Pact on November 6, 1937. On May 22, 1939, Germany and Italy signed the so-called Pact of Steel, formalizing the Axis alliance with military provisions. Finally, on September 27, 1940, Germany, Italy, and Japan signed the Tripartite Pact, which became known as the Axis alliance.
Even before the Tripartite Pact, two of the three Axis powers had initiated conflicts that would become theaters of war in World War II. On July 7, 1937, Japan invaded China to initiate the war in the Pacific. The German invasion of Poland on September 1, 1939, unleashed the European war. Italy entered World War II on the Axis side on June 10, 1940, as the defeat of France became apparent.
Other Countries Join the Axis Alliance
In July 1940, just weeks after the defeat of France, Hitler decided that Nazi Germany would attack the Soviet Union the following spring. In order to secure raw materials, transit rights for German troops, and troop contributions for the invasion from sympathetic powers, Germany began to cajole and pressure the southeast European states to join the Axis. Nazi Germany offered economic aid to Slovakia and military protection and Soviet territory to Romania, while warning Hungary that recent German support for Hungarian annexations of Czechoslovak and Romanian territory might change to the benefit of Slovakia and Romania.
Italy’s failed effort to conquer Greece in the late autumn and winter of 1940-1941 exacerbated German concerns about securing their southeastern flank in the Balkans. Greek entry into the war and victories in northern Greece and Albania allowed the British to open a Balkan front against the Axis in Greece that might threaten Romania’s oil fields, which were vital to Nazi Germany’s invasion plans. To subdue Greece and move the British off the European mainland, Nazi Germany now required troop transport through Yugoslavia and Bulgaria.
After the Italo-Greek front opened on October 28, 1940, German pressure on Hungary and the Balkan States intensified. Hoping for preferential economic treatment, mindful of recent German support for annexation of northern Transylvania, and eager for future Axis support for acquiring the remainder of Transylvania, Hungary joined the Axis on November 20, 1940.
Having already requested and received a German military mission in October 1940, the Romanians joined on November 23, 1940. They hoped that loyal support for a German invasion of the Soviet Union and faithful oil deliveries would destroy the Soviet threat, return the provinces annexed by the Soviet Union in June 1940, and win German support for the return of northern Transylvania. Both politically and economically dependent on Germany for its very existence as an “independent” state, Slovakia followed suit on November 24.
Bulgaria, whose leaders were reluctant to get involved in a war with the Soviet Union, and Yugoslavia, which was nominally an ally of Greece, stalled, resisting German pressure. After the Germans offered Greek territory in Thrace and exempted it from participation in the invasion of the Soviet Union, Bulgaria joined the Axis on March 1, 1941.
When the Germans agreed to settle for Yugoslav neutrality in the war against Greece, without demanding transit rights for Axis troops, Yugoslavia reluctantly joined the Axis on March 25, 1941. Two days later, Serbian military officers overthrew the government that had signed the Tripartite Pact. After the subsequent invasion and dismemberment of Yugoslavia by Germany, Italy, Hungary, and Bulgaria in April, the newly established and so-called Independent State of Croatia joined the Axis on June 15, 1941.
On June 26, 1941, four days after the Axis invasion of the Soviet Union, Finland, seeking to regain territory lost during the 1939-1940 Winter War, entered the war against the USSR as a “co-belligerent.” Finland never signed the Tripartite Pact.
After Japan’s surprise attack on the United States fleet anchored at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii on December 7, 1941, and the declaration of war on the United States by Germany and the European Axis powers within a week, the Atlantic and Pacific wars became a truly world war.
Defeat of the Axis Powers
The Allied Powers, led by Great Britain, the United States, and the Soviet Union, defeated the Axis in World War II.
Italy was the first Axis partner to give up: it surrendered to the Allies on September 8, 1943, six weeks after leaders of the Italian Fascist Party deposed Fascist leader and Italian dictator Benito Mussolini.
On August 23, 1944, following the overthrow of dictator Marshal Ion Antonescu, Romania switched sides: Romanian troops fought alongside Soviet troops for the remainder of the war.
After the Soviets rejected its offer of an armistice, Bulgaria surrendered on September 8, 1944, as the Communist-led Fatherland Front seized power from the Axis government in a coup and then declared war on Nazi Germany.
On September 19, 1944, Finland signed an armistice with the Soviet Union.
The German occupation of Hungary in March 1944 succeeded in its primary purpose: to prevent the Hungarian leaders from deserting the Axis as the Romanians would later do. Hungary never surrendered; the war ended for Hungary only when Soviet troops drove the last pro-Axis Hungarian troops and police units and the members of the Arrow Cross government across Hungary’s western border into Austria in early April 1945.
Slovakia, which German troops occupied in the summer of 1944 to suppress the Slovak uprising, remained in the Axis as a puppet state until the Soviets captured the capital, Bratislava, in early April 1945.
Fanatical remnants of the Croat Ustasa remained in Croatia until Tito’s Partisans captured or drove them across the border into German-occupied Slovenia and Austria itself in the last days of April 1945.
On May 7, 1945, seven days after Hitler committed suicide, Nazi Germany surrendered unconditionally to the Allies. Japan fought on alone, surrendering formally on September 2, 1945."
So at the very very worst case scenario, Donald Trump could very well form a brand new axis of evil with North Korea and Vladimir Putin.
Donald Trump's role would be like Hitler. The ranting raving tyrant with bad hair swooped to his left, isolating the country, IDing an entire religion that will likely get killed if they retaliate, kicking out several races just for looking illegal in his eyes, ruining our PR and polluting the environment, and dealing with two of the most evil dictators in the world. I wouldn't put it past Trump if he starts torturing immigrants and Muslims worse than the patriot act and trying to extort money out of Mexico to make them pay for the wall. Which they've said they won't.
Kim Jong Un's roll will be that of Hirohito's. His country is isolated, anyone who criticizes him gets murdered, and if Trump helps him "bring peace to Korea" that would mean North Korea invading South Korea and destroying them. Sure Korea would become united, but under totalitarian dictatorship, communism and tyranny. It would suck to be in Korea. With a little bit of our help. More on that later.
Vladimir Putin would be Mussolini. The middle man. Helping out America and (if they can comply) North Korea in our tyranny, and not doing that much except keeping all the countries that want to leave captive to Russia. No matter how much they protest. Even tear gassing r shooting anybody who fights back. Except this time, Trump will be the financial wing Mussolini was, and Putin would focus more on annexing like Hitler. So Trump, Putin and Kim Jong would basically share all three roles depending on what they do exactly.
Trump could sign a partnership with Putin and Kim Jong to form an alliance. Within this alliance, he could use some of his own money and our hard earned tax dollars to fund whatever North Korea and Russia need, such as nuclear weapon development, negotiations to invade other countries and annex them, inhumane tests on humans and animals, propaganda programs to boost PR locally to keep the public brainwahsed and obedient, and other governmental programs that would spell victory for them, and bloodshed for anybody around them. Kim Jong could "bring peace to Korea" by invading South Korea by force like I said, bombing the fuck out of them and eventually taking them over as millions try desperately to flee the country and not get killed during the waves of despicable bloodshed, before North Korea takes measures to bomb and invade Japan, Vietnam, Singapore, China and any country he may not like or who does not trust him or what would make Korea larger. Some of our money could go to Putin as well, who could nuke any neighboring country that says boo to Putin, and also invade and annex foreign lands much like Kim Jong would be doing. Not to mention hold the countries that were already annexed by Russia hostage despite how they all want independence. As Russia ad North Korea grow bigger and bigger, (if successful in some invasions,) they will eventually meet neck and neck. We could start World War III with the Middle East, and do to that entire continent what the terrorist organizations have been doing to western countries like us, only for the terrorists to retaliate harder than ever with more suicide bombers and spies who can blow up entire blocks and major buildings this time as revenge and not just because we think differently from them. It would be a war without a single good guy to root for! Who could you cheer? The Tali Ban or The Nazis? Should you root for the evil terrorist organizations that give Islam a bad name, or the reincarnation of the Nazi party headed by rich American Hitler, and backed up by a bond villain and a crazy North Korean otaku Hitler?
Chaos would ensue, blood would splatter everywhere, towns and city districts across the Middle East, Asia, Northeast Europe and North America would be blown to smithereens by suicide bombers, murderers, terrorists, neo-Nazis, the KKK insurgents, Middle Eastern insurgents, Russian troops, American troops, American gangs and North Korean militias, panic will abound as hardly single nook or cranny would be safe to hide in for long, the air, sea and sky will be polluted in nuclear fallout, smog, pollution and the splattered guts of human citizens as well as the terrorists and troops, landmarks would be defaced, buildings would be in shambles with millions of unrecognizable dead bodies scattered about the wreckage, and since Trump would be played a fool by both Kim Jong and Putin, eventually either one of them could very easily assassinate him on live TV and take us over, as they too would bomb the west coast and take celebrities hostage to brainwash them into allies! And should their invasions become successful enough that they meet neck and neck or even just start gaining power at all, either one of them could turn on each other and have a civil war within this disastrous world war! It would be an international catastrophe that would make The Iraq War and Vietnam War both look like an episode of Dora The Explorer. IS THIS WHAT WE REALLY WANT?
And should they fail in their invasions, they will suck more, and more, and more, and more and fucking more of our money and Trump's money like a god damned vacuum, until eventually the stock market crashes, we go in the red harder than the end of George W. Bush's second term, the partnership could end, and we would go to war with Russia and North Korea as well as the Middle East, with hardly a single country that would want to be our allies because we partnered with the wrong dictators, and because we picked the copper headed Hitler like bigoted blowhard reality show star "Get rich quick" ponzi scheming celebutante over the more qualified Democrat lady, the Green Party lady with more experience at being a female nominee, and the questionable Libertarian guy. Meaning that we would be fucked. HARD. We would be nuked faster than a pop tart in a microwave. No matter how many armed forces we have. Because most of the world would ditch us and send our troops we have stationed over there packing, because Trump would have won the election and Trump would have partnered with Putin and Kim Jong in the first place! We would be like a quadriplegic man covered in head cheese in the middle of a zombie infested shopping mall. In the dark. DO YOU WANT THAT?
Again, that's still the worst possible case scenario. And that is what I'm most afraid of when it comes to Donald J. Trump becoming our 45th president of the United States.
Our political choices this election is pretty damned fucked up. Sure there's Hillary, and sure she could be the first female POTUS ever, but her nomination was rigged, her running mate is a bit of a douche, and she's only been a progressive (or portrayed the role of one) ever since Bernie Sanders (my first pick) started talking. We have Jill Stein, who I am voting for, (unless Bernie's somehow on the ballot in my state despite Hillary's nomination,) but I do have to admit her ideas are outlandish and she too is fooled by Putin. Sure Gary Johnson isn't a Republican and he certainly isn't Trump, but his politics sound pretty damned Repub. And it's estimated that despite such an even louder outcry for a third party, America is still closed minded to third party and moderate or truly progressive voices VS the neo-liberal pretend progressives of the Democrats and the increasingly more bigoted Republicans. We're basically between a rock, a hard place, a hard place with a crack in it so you can get a little bit of sun, and the detonation button that would cause the apocalypse. That rock is Clinton, that hard place is Johnson, that crack is Stein, and that button is Trump.
Just, please. Whatever you do. VOTE FOR ANYBODY BUT TRUMP! I'll gladly vote for that Norwegian metal star Gylve Fenris Nagell over Trump.
