On the American Front
Democrats and small “d” democrats, even in the Republican Party, have consistently underrated the political genius of Donald Trump.
He is a master entertainer and storyteller, with an incredible ability to capture and retain public attention. He has been an unending supply of gold and ratings for the cable news channels.
Americans are endlessly fascinated with Donald Trump.
He has demonstrated a genius for corrupting all around him and who come in contact with him not seen since Adolf Hitler.
He is a master propagandist who puts the Nazi’s Josef Goebbels to shame.
Look at his achievements.
He has singlehandedly turned the Republican Party into an instrument of his own will.
He has so terrified the Democrats that they have been afraid to hold him accountable under the law.
He and his supporters so scared House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that she blocked any broad impeachment inquiry for years, before finally allowing a narrow inquiry limited to Ukraine to proceed.
He has so intimidated President Joe Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland that they have refused to indict him for his many apparent crimes in office, and to indict any of his co-conspirators in these crimes, including an insurrection aimed at overthrowing the 2020 election and the constitution.
Trump is an incredible genius who has achieved impunity.
He is a man above the law.
And his co-conspirators have also been granted impunity.
They too are above the law.
He has created a powerful cult following of tens of millions of people who believe he should be above the law, and who react with threats of violence and actual violence to any attempts to hold him accountable before the law.
Trump is a true genius who has created and leads a fascist movement which may soon control the House and the Senate of tbe United States.
Trump so controls the Republican Party that many if not most of the candidates for the House and Senate in 2022 support the Big Lie that he won the 2020 presidential election which he claims–without a scintilla of evidence–
Joe Biden stole through massive fraud.
Donald Trump has brilliantly succeeded is erasing the concept of factual truth, and spun an alternate universe of lies and distortions that is totally unmoored from facts and reality.
He has mastered the Big Lie as a tool for destroying the public’s belief in the concept of truth.
He is an absolute genius, a brilliant demagogue who may be elected again as the fascist president of the United States.
His political talents exceed those of Adolf Hitler.
Indeed, Donald Trump is an extraordinary political genius.
It is high time that we fully recognize that genius, and the mortal threat to American democracy that it represents.
