A Grudging Acceptance – Trump Channels Goebbels

“Great Trump Speech, America First… couldn't have said it better!” – David Duke, former KKK Grand Wizard

“… laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is; I believe that. It’s not anything they can control.”- Donald Trump, White America’s current Grand Wizard

“I've heard this sort of speech a lot in the last 15 years and trust me, it doesn't sound any better in Russian.” – Gary Kasparov, Russian Chess Grandmaster and Political Activist

Fascism comes to America in Chinese polyester and piss-poor hair plugs.

“America’s long national nightmare” has begun. The Republican National Convention has concluded, and we patriotic Americans suffered through a sad and shocking spectacle of Aryan power and desires, delivered from and to an overwrought, angry assemblage of enraged, screaming, alabaster-hued, pasty, monochromatic faces, unlike anything witnessed since the years of the Nuremberg Rallies. The GOP (aka KKK) formally nominated our first openly bigoted and openly totalitarian presidential candidate, and he regaled in the unbridled adoration and unquestioning devotion of his obedient sheep. 

Trump’s acceptance speech was full of the kind of perverse and perilous prevarication expected by someone who kept copies of Adolph Hitler’s speeches in his nightstand (should you doubt the veracity of this blog - http://www.businessinsider.com/donald-trumps-ex-wife-once-said-he-kept-a-book-of-hitlers-speeches-by-his-bed-2015-8) and was full of hatred, racism, division, lies, anti-Americanism, xenophobia, authoritarianism, and more than anything else, irredeemable and acute self-worship.


“I Am Your Voice… I Alone Can Fix it.” – Donald Trump, Lord and Savior

This historic oration (historic, of course, as in terms of events like the Ice Age and the asteroid that slew the dinosaurs, not historic as in the American Revolution or the first moon walk) was a dangerous and offensive exercise in narcissistic deception and fabrication, firmly built on a foundation of proven and time-tested, wrathful Fascist rhetoric.

Trump pushed all the traditional Fascist buttons and articulated (if one can “articulate” purely monosyllabically) its ignorant and igneous ideology – the militarism, the fear-mongering, the provocation of unfounded fury, the dystopian doom and gloom, the demonization of the other -  foreigners, immigrants, Muslims, non-whites, non-Christians - the intense isolationism, the extreme nationalism and the artificial appeal to the everyday working man, those whom Trump and his monyed compadres regularly bilk to build their fortunes.

He vociferously, vituperously and vengefully presented a series of flagrantly false facts and figures, painting a grey, grim and gruesome portrait of a completely non-existent America, overrun with “others” of darker skin-tones, divergent faiths and destructively disloyal allegiances, who are raping, pillaging and murdering their way through Mayberrys and Pleasantvilles from the mountains to the prairies, to the oceans white with foam and plastic six-pack rings, infiltrating and annihilating our culture, forcing onto us their deviant views and values and, of most importance, pilfering all of our best jobs.

As is the conventional Fascist custom, Trump maliciously and mercilessly scapegoated those who, in reality, have the least among us, and placed blame squarely on their overburdened and stooped shoulders for any trials and tribulations "real" Americans may currently be enduring. And in response to all these harrowing and frequently fictional woes of the white privileged, he proffered not a plan, not a position, not a platform, but a person – a single dictatorial figure to whom we must surrender our will and blindly place our unwavering trust – heil Trump! “I alone can fix it.”

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” - Joseph Goebbels, Third Reich, Minister of Propaganda

“And here, at our convention, there will be no lies. We will honor the American people with the truth, and nothing else.” – Chancellor Trump

"Fact-checking Trumps's garbage truck of lies: His speech... riddled with fiction and conspiracies." - Salon

Sadly, and inexplicably, tens of millions of our fellow Americans march willingly, and even gleefully, to Donald Trump’s totalitarian drum beat.  We’ve heard this song before.

“Oh Fatherland, Fatherland,
Show us the sign
Your children have waited to see
The morning will come
When the world is mine
Tomorrow belongs
Tomorrow belongs
Tomorrow belongs
To me!” – Fred Ebb
