I've found today this quote by Joseph Goebbels, later Nazi minister for propaganda from 1928 when he was just a plain member of the parliament; there are too many things in common with Trump in it to just shrug it away lightly.

We are an anti-parliamentarian party that for good reasons rejects the Weimar constitution and its republican institutions. We oppose a fake democracy that treats the intelligent and the foolish, the industrious and the lazy, in the same way. We see in the present system of majorities and organized irresponsibility the main cause of our steadily increasing miseries.

So why do we want to be in the Reichstag?

We enter the Reichstag to arm ourselves with the weapons of democracy. If democracy is foolish enough to give us free railway passes and salaries, that is its problem. It does not concern us. Any way of bringing about the revolution is fine by us.

If we succeed in getting sixty or seventy of our party’s agitators and organizers elected to the various parliaments, the state itself will pay for our fighting organization. That is amusing and entertaining enough to be worth trying.

Will we be corrupted by joining parliament? Not likely. Do you think us such miserable revolutionaries that you fear that the thick red carpets and the well-upholstered sleeping halls will make us forget our historical mission?

Is our entry into the Reichstag the beginning of a compromise? Do you really think that we who have stood before you a hundred or a thousand times preaching faith in a new Germany, who have smilingly faced death dozens of times from the red mob, who have joined you in battling every form of resistance whether of official or nonofficial nature, who have bent before no command or terror, do you really think that we would lay down our weapons in exchange for a railroad pass?
If we only wanted to become representatives, we would not be National Socialists, but German National Party members or Social Democrats. We do not beg for votes. We demand conviction, devotion, passion! A vote is only a tool for us as well as for you. We will march into the marble halls of parliament, bringing with us the revolutionary will of the broad masses from which we came, called by fate and forming fate. We do not want to join this pile of manure. We are coming to shovel it out.

Do not believe that parliament is our goal. We have shown the enemy our nature from the podiums of our mass meetings and in the enormous demonstrations of our brown army. We will show it as well in the leaden atmosphere of parliament. We are coming neither as friends or neutrals. We come as enemies! As the wolf attacks the sheep, so come we. You are not among your friends any longer! You will not enjoy having us among you!

Fascists always show their base nature. It’s the reason they can’t endure a civilized society and its rules. I hope the second time around we’ll be smarter about recognizing them.

Well or just how Karl Stiefvater put it in his most recent blog post:

we’ve been talking about whether Trump is Hitler for a while now. i just realized that the question is sorta moot – there is a much more relevant and threatening situation in front of us that deserves more attention:

whether or not Trump is a Hitler – one thing is certain – his supporters are nazis.

his supporters are objectively insane. they justify any crime; they embrace any horror; they dismiss any truth and believe any ridiculous lie – that enable them to believe in their own superiority and inflict suffering on they people they’ve decided are inferior.

whether or not Trump builds gas chambers is irrelevant; the horror of the nazis is already upon us.

Trump hired a lawyer to support him on the impeachment stuff; it is no other than Pam Bondi.

Pam Bondi, former general attorney of Florida, openly considered joining a New York law suit against Trump University in 2013. Shortly after that "And justice for all" received a 25000 US$ donation by the Trump organisation. This organisation supported Bondis electional campaign back then. So Bondi never joined the law suit; later she claimed that she landed the donation weeks before she considered joining the law suit. CREW in 2016 complained against the donation; it was found to be unlawful, so she payed a fine.

Trump himself denied that the donation was connected to the law suit, but instead was issued to show his appreceation of her performance as attorney general.

It does not hurt either, that she's young enough, beautiful and blonde a little bit like Ivana was.

I have to laugh at Rs on twitter who are acting so smug. The next one that says they won I will reply back to with 'what race were you watching'.

If true, this is encouraging, in that he's actually willing to leave office at some point.


I'd love to see him decide that being president is too much hassle and leave to do this.
Of course, he shouldn't be off the hook for his crimes, but him leaving voluntarily would at least relieve some of the stress.

Especially if he leaves early to be on a reality show instead of being president. Can you just IMAGINE the look on the face of your local red hat? :)

I imagine they'd probably be watching religiously, lol. He'll continue to tweet venom, and probably become a right wing pundit for Fox or Breitbart or someone.
He may decide being prez isn't fun anymore, but he's as addicted to MAGAt Euro as he is to Adderall.

Hey, I would not mind. Let them drool to the donnie show until he dies, as long as not somewhere where he can do actual damage to the country and planet. Besides, as soon as he leaves he is open to all sorts of fun legal stuff so it would be a joy to observe the drama from afar.

They can do a reality show and call it "The Prisoner".
