Best Trump comparison

Re: Best Trump comparison

What is truly scary are the numbers of people in your country that think Trump is on the right track.

But I guess there were a lot of followers of McCArthy too as well as Mussolini and Hitler.

It is after they get power and start wielding the club that the 'followers' or at least some of them start to see the problem but then find it is too late.

 

Too many are too young to remember what MacCarthy did to your country and do not understand history can repeat itself.

Sweeping generalizations are risky but that never fazes anyone here.

 

What I wonder about is the inherent tragedy within the reigning moral assumptions of our day.

 

Perhaps John Galt is our exemplar or perhaps 30 years of unfettered wild west financial capitalism has elevated many sociopathic and psychopathic personalities to where they wield most of the power in our society.

 

Of course the appeal of a Trump is exactly the inverse of that- the resentment against all the politicians and bureaucrats and other Lilliputians who hold great men down.

It amazes me that you on the left are more concerned about who the right picks and have no concern what so ever what kind of trash is on your team. Do your job first and the when the two go head to head make your case. MIckey Mouse would be a better choice than your current options.

As much as anything the countervailing power that took McCarthy down was Murrow and the CBS new group.

 

They had a lot of cred then, owing to their WWII days.

 

The only group with much power to move opinion is Fox and it is smaller, more concentrated. There's essentially no counterbalance.

 

Be very afraid, seriously.

 

Likewise on the old Indianapolic Times that took down D.C. Stephenson and the Indiana Klan. Today there would be powerful voices claiming that the rape and murder charges against him were part of the vast MSM left wing conspiracy.

 

In those days (at least enough) preachers took to the pulpit to denouce him and that was enough to doom an organization that claimed to be Christian. Not sure how many megachurch preachers are going to endanger their standing with their personality cults.

Thought you said you wanted Trump to be the nominee. Now you sound like the RNC.
