You may have heard that Donald Trump is literally Hitler. Of course, in the parlance of our times, literally literally means figuratively. Words don’t mean what they mean anymore, they mean whatever the barely literate liberal arts gender studies major with filthy rich parents who’s lecturing you about your “privilege” wants them to mean. Up is down, down is up. Up-up-down-down-left-right-left-right-b-a-start will leave most people scratching their heads (but try typing it right now if you need some comic relief). Far-left “anti-fascist” extremists are liberals, liberals are conservatives, and conservatives are, well, literally Hitler. Not only is this heinously disrespectful to Hitler’s victims, it’s also just plain insane.
We are living in a batshit crazy time.
University students hold protests against free speech and liberty. Universities themselves have become safe space daycare centres for overgrown babies prone to tantrums when they don’t get their way.
Using the wrong pronouns is a crime, but Christians can’t choose who they bake cakes for.
We’ve gone from ending the “stigma” around mental illness to actively celebrating it. Did you succumb to mental illness? That’s stunning and brave! What’s your diagnosis? Put it in your social media profile!
People’s lives are routinely ruined for having wrong opinions™, and it doesn’t matter who they are; famous scientists, CEOs, or just an Average Joe like me. We’re all equally vulnerable to the wrath of the politically correct totalitarians that have all the klout these days.
The leaders of our nations are more interested in virtue signalling to the world how tolerant and “progressive” they are than doing their duty to serve and protect their citizens’ interests.
Weak-minded people engage in choreographed
riots protests against capitalism, “conservatives” or just “white people”, funded by a billionaire misanthrope who helped the Nazis. Apparently they don’t understand irony. These groups pop up out of nowhere and then fizzle out just as quickly once their purpose has been served.
The biggest purveyor of fake news is the mainstream media, a behemoth twisted and ruined by decades of mergers and acquisitions, now fully controlled by a handful of billionaires but masquerading as a free and independent press. Then, like all sociopaths do, they DARVO the crap out of their opposition.
The internet is under attack. Once free, decentralized and open, it’s now firmly in the grip of just two companies; Google and Facebook, who have become the gatekeepers of basically everything. And their power and influence grows every day. (Anti)social media is literally (not figuratively) the worst thing to happen to humanity. Worse, control of the domain name system was handed over the to UN. If you think the UN is looking out for the good of the world, you probably think having Saudi Arabia on the human rights council is totally reasonable too.
Most people have lost the ability to think for themselves and analyze information (if they ever had it). They just accept whatever Buzzfeed or CBC tells them and have feelings about it but never thoughts. Don’t believe me? Next time someone expresses a strong emotional opinion about something like, “Donald Trump is a racist!”, ask them what evidence they’ve seen that led them to that conclusion. If you’re lucky you’ll get a blank stare, if you’re not, you’ll be accused of harassment.
Oh, and in case you think it’s an accident that everyone is tossing these accusations around, think again. It’s a narrative that’s been carefully crafted by the usual suspects.
Read up on Saul Alinsky.
People are being manipulated on a grand scale. Two years ago, Donald Trump was a cultural icon, the eccentric billionaire real estate mogul turned entertainer. The very worst anyone (except Rosie O’Donnell) felt about him was indifference. Overnight he was turned into enemy number one by a media machine doing the bidding of its masters. By some miracle, he still won (yes, he really did. By the way, did you know Lincoln only won 40% of the popular vote?). And no, the miracle wasn’t the fucking Russians.
I like Trump. As a rational, reasonable person I will change my mind if he ever gives me a reason to. I am not partisan. I’ve voted for the Liberal Party, the Conservative Party, and even the NDP (just once, in a weak moment). If I was American, I would have voted for Obama in 2008 AND 2012. In 2013 I would have been regretting my mistake.
I also don’t care if you don’t like Trump. I just wish you could articulate why in terms that don’t involve repeating hysterical nonsense and your very own alternative facts.
By the way, anyone who compares you to Hitler because they disagree with you and want you to shut up is literally* Stalin. Also, Donald Trump is clearly not even figuratively Hitler.
