There was no collusion, you are getting sleepy…….

“It would not be impossible to prove with sufficient repetition and a psychological understanding of the people concerned that a square is in fact a circle. They are mere words, and words can be molded until they clothe ideas and disguise.” – Joseph Goebbels

Seemingly everyday “our” President tweets to his minions something along the lines of his tweet this morning “The single greatest Witch Hunt in American history continues. There was no collusion, everybody including the Dems knows there was no collusion, & yet on and on it goes. Russia & the world is laughing at the stupidity they are witnessing. Republicans should finally take control!” Why does he attempt to pound away at this you ask? Well read the quote above and maybe, just maybe you will understand.

For any of you youngsters unfamiliar with Joseph Goebbels, he was Adolf Hitler’s and the Nazi Party’s Minister of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda. If you spend any amount of time reading about both Adolf Hitler and Joseph Goebbels you will find eerie similarities between these two men and “our” current President. It is seriously chilling.

I am convinced the similarities between Trump, Hitler and Goebbels has less to do with intent and everything to do with simply the type of men they are and were. Power hungry. egocentric and insecure, very insecure. 65% of us know Trump is lying but like Hitler, Trump’s mental abilities, ethics and morals prevent him from knowing the difference between telling the truth and telling us what he has convinced himself of.

In his book The Art of the Deal Trump states; “The final key to the way I promote is bravado. I play to people’s fantasies. People may not always think big themselves, but they can still get very excited by those who do. That’s why a little hyperbole never hurts. People want to believe that something is the biggest and the greatest and the most spectacular. I call it truthful hyperbole. It’s an innocent form of exaggeration—and a very effective form of promotion.” Pair this thought with one from Joseph Goebbels; “That propaganda is good which leads to success, and that is bad which fails to achieve the desired result. It is not propaganda’s task to be intelligent, its task is to lead to success.”

What’s the difference? One seems warm and fuzzy, the other cold and heartless but the reality is this, they are the same thought, with the same goal and desired end result, just in a different candy cover. I don’t think Trump has set his sights on becoming the next Adolf Hitler they are simply physiologically, mentally and emotionally the same person.

Trump certainly appeals too, promotes and encourages the type of Aryanism that Hitler ascribed too. Hell it’s what got him elected, and makes-up 99.9% of his deplorable base. He can’t murder six million European Jews but he can build a wall and issue a travel ban. Comparable? It would hardly seem so but I guess it depends on whose sandals you are walking in. Preventing Syrian refugees from entering our country could certainly be considered a death sentence. Forcing Mexican citizens to ride in the back of an enclosed panel truck so that they can work in the California tomato fields becomes a deadly excursion for many as well. Remember, warm and fuzzy, cold and heartless.

“If the day should ever come when we must go, if some day we are compelled to leave the scene of history, we will slam the door so hard that the universe will shake and mankind will stand back in stupefaction.” – Joseph Goebbels

I wrote my Senators today and told them that “Trump will go down as the most deceitful, destructive and corrupt United States President in modern history making Richard Nixon look like a bumbling novice in the world of crooked politics and you and your allies in the Republican party will be held responsible for allowing him to desecrate this great country.” I placed the blame on them but in reality the blame is to be shared by many. We all had a hand in creating this monster. We were asleep and allowed our government to operate on auto-pilot. Hopefully we have learned our lesson, found our voice and will look beyond our 401-K’s and deeper into the future. We will look through the eyes of our children and grandchildren and act on what they will see rather than what we want tomorrow.

 “We shall go down in history as the greatest statesmen of all time, or as the greatest criminals” – Joseph Goebbels

    Well thought out and written. This post says what most of us in the US are thinking and afraid of. Perhaps by contacting our own congress people we can in someway change the situation we find our self in. Hugs

  2. Seems the GOP congress, in its appointments/legislation are burning the bridges as they withdraw in the defeat they see coming at them — getting all they can before it is over before their mean, soulless, money grubbing, lawlessness and crimes catch up with them. How else to explain how they purposely (it seems) are alienating 75% of the American people? It just doesn’t make rational sense. It’s like they say to themselves, What’s the most evil thing we can do today? and then try to do it.

    They are waking up people, however, to realize how fragile what’s left of our democracy is. I hope it’s not too late.

    Early last year, my wife stumbled upon an online Japanese documentary/current affairs program comparing Hitler before he came to power and Trump, including some of their speeches. The speeches were dubbed over in Japanese, and apparently, when translated, the content and rhetoric was very similar, except Hitler’s were more passionately presented. It certainly made my wife uneasy.

  4. I get the comparisons, I really do. Perhaps I’m a victim of the Dotard’s hypnotism, but he seems entirely inept to me — without a plan (except for getting/staying wealthier), without the ability to understand what’s going on in a room. Hitler, for all his evil, could at least be said to have been intelligent. Were Hitler or Goebbels ever described as “buffoonish” or having childlike temper-tantrums?

    This is the primary difference I see. Those men had *goals* and *plans* and methods to carry out their plans to reach their goals. Trump just seems like an incompetent, increasingly mentally impaired braggart who’s never once had to suffer the consequence of an action.
