The Rise of Orange Hitler
In 1925 Hitler wrote Mein Kampf which laid out his plans for Germany. He made no secret of what he planned to do. He filled his speeches with the need for war and the need to exterminate Jews. Germans just ignored this, and voted for him anyway. They treated him as a clown. He could not possibly be serious.
Why did they vote him into office? The good German citizens had nearly all been indoctrinated by the Catholic and Protestant churches on the magic power of faith. Truth does not matter. What does matter is what you wish to be so. Then all that is required is sufficient faith to make it so.
In the USA in 2016, Orange Hitler too was completely open about his hatred of Hispanics, blacks, Muslims, gays, Jews, the disabled and women. The media pretended not to notice the 21 women accusing him of sexual assault. A 13-year old virgin had accused him of tying her to a bed and gang raping her with his buddy, Jeffrey Epstein. He confessed to multiple counts of sexual assault on tape. The American people pretended not to hear the confession. They pretended the problem was him using the rude word pussy instead of the confession.
Orange Hitler said I love war, including nuclear war. Though he said it on tape, the American media reported it only once. A fruitcake presidential candidate planned to blow up the world and this was not newsworthy? He said What is the point of having nuclear weapons if you don’t use them?
Orange Hitler many times announced he was a climate change denier, apparently because he was confused between climate and weather. He installed a fellow denier as VP (Vice President) and as head of the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and has his chief strategist. According to science, this is a pretty good way of ending life on earth. Yet his plan to end vertebrate life on earth hardly made a ripple on the news. Americans never discussed it online. Climate change is too depressing. Americans had faith without evidence that it must be some spectacular hoax, a completely secret conspiracy of all scientists on earth.
Why did they vote for him? Unlike other developed nations the good American citizens had nearly all been indoctrinated by the Catholic and Protestant churches on the magic power of faith. Truth does not matter. What does matter is what you want to be so. Then all that is required is sufficient faith to make it so.
Pundits claimed that once Orange Hitler faced the actualities of governing, he would give up his extreme, crazy ideas. Again this was just wishful thinking. His choices for cabinet are even more extreme than he is.
Americans just ignored the evidence he was more dangerous than Hitler, and voted for him anyway. They treated him as a clown. He could not possibly be serious.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:69)
