The predominant question in German
history lessons about Hitler and the holocaust was: How could this happen? The younger post-war generation held their elders to account, for standing by and letting this happen.
Now we are watching our own generation’s rise of a dictator, politics of ignorance and hate and a utterly unbelievable decline of reason.
A different Republican president would be a political defeat. This is not about left or right or politics, this is about the foundations of our society. Never been so scared
Today the graves of President Lincoln et al are rumbling. Never in the history of my life time has a presidential win affected people like this one. What does this say for the situation when the people (and the media) can’t even have something nice to say to welcome him. All that’s talked about is the way he talked through the campaign to people, his plans to deport people, penalize women who want abortions, defacing women, shouting obscenities, and so much more. Last night just before he won, I watched his HQ, with his voters chanting ‘Lock her up’. What kind of society do you think will come from such antagonizing? Who the hell talks like that and gets away with it? I’ll tell you who, cult leaders brainwash the people to talk like that. Hitler did that. The lost and foresaken who vote for those people because they believe naively that this new order is going to breed new life in the system. Not realizing it’s the devil in disguise.
