Fascism is becoming a reality as I write these words. Much of the rhetoric from many Trump supporters is the language of an Ultranationalist. I never thought I would have to learn that word in my lifetime. Honestly, I had no idea this word existed until today.
To: Trump Supporters
If you are a Trump supporter, you won’t like what I have to say about you. I don’t like saying it any more than I like these observations being accurate. Please know that I’m providing this information to people you love so they can help you break the spell Trump has put on you.
I suspect that you will read this and discount every word. If you’ve made it this far, I’m impressed. If you open your mind and read through this article, you might walk away free of the spell Trump has put upon you. I hope to see you on the other side.
Our Shared Reality
We have become jaded by the continuous onslaught of misinformation from the Trump administration. It’s astonishing to see Trump sink lower and lower on the morality totem pole every day. It appears that he is in competition with himself to see how low he can go.
We can’t allow this reality to become our normal; WE ARE BETTER THAN THIS!
I’ve written two articles in the past, Fascism, a Warning, and Fascism, another Warning. Unfortunately, many of the warnings I wrote about have come to pass. I wouldn’t say I like writing these articles, but I must write and hope that I open some eyes.
👁 Please open your eyes! 👁
Born In The USA
I was born in the USA. I love the United States.
I said the pledge of allegiance every day before school, and it didn’t bother me. I want to remember that I owe a debt of gratitude to the Republic. As I grew older, I developed a healthy fear of the pledge of allegiance for fear of Nationalism taking root in our country.
Americans are not required to say the pledge of allegiance, and for a good reason, if someone forces us to pledge, the meaning is lost.
We Americans are a good people, and we know we must do the right thing, which means we balance our love of country with a healthy fear of losing it. I know that my fellow Americans on the continent to the North and the south agree with the good people of the United States.
“I pledge allegiance to my Flag and the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
Did you know that Francis Bellamy was a socialist? Did you know that Francis aligned with Jesus and considered Jesus to be a socialist when he was alive?
It’s difficult to understand why Trump supporters decry schools that don’t say the pledge. It’s baffling that some Christians align with a Nationalist, which goes directly against the teachings of Jesus. Nationalists don’t like to share; Jesus said to give everything and, most importantly, give love to EVERYONE.
Do these values sound like Nationalist values?
Conspiracy Theory Enthusiast
If I were a conspiracy theorist, like Donald J. Trump, I would theorize that a Trump Republican cabal is behind the madness. I love this picture, it really says it all, kudos to the artist.
I know that many Trump supporters are doing anything and everything they can to win. I know they value winning above all else, and they will take the Republic down with them given the chance.
People emulate their leaders; this is a scientific fact, we are heading in the wrong direction. Trump signed up for the job purely because he is an egomaniac. Trump is there to aggrandize himself and tell everyone he did it.
Trump, you did it, can we please move on to the next episode? I’m tired of this episode; it’s running way too long, and the game remote isn’t working. 🎮 💀
Trump suffers from Egomania. Trump does everything to win, and everything to make himself look good.
Egomania is psychiatric term used to describe excessive preoccupation with one’s ego, identity or self and applies the same preoccupation to anyone who follows one’s own ungoverned impulses, is possessed by delusions of personal greatness & grandeur and feels a lack of appreciation.
In acknowledgment to humans being humans, many of our leaders are narcissists. It takes a next level ego to believe you can lead not hundreds but hundreds of millions of people to a better future. Many people cannot relate to the hubris required to fill the role of President of the United States. Maybe about 25% of us can relate to that level of hubris, but many more want to have a beer and a steak, watch some sports, and avoid dying from the Coronavirus.
It doesn’t matter if there is a cabal. It doesn’t matter if they think they will win; we will stop the Trump administration.
Fox News is Propaganda
A friend posted a video this morning. It is propaganda from the propaganda machine Fox News. Pam Bondi blatantly lies to Fox News listeners at 0:32 in this video. Pam says that Kyle Rittenhouse is protecting his state. This statement is a lie meant to instill fear in Fox News viewers.
Kyle Rittenhouse is from Illinois, not Wisconsin.
Also of note, Bondi is a Trump loyalist and lied to you at the Republican National Convention.
This video honestly floors me; it’s intensely apparent that these brainwashers use fear tactics to control you. Trump and his accomplices have cultivated a culture of fear designed to manipulate you. Pundits paint a doomsday view of the world every day. Lies and Scary Things™ are assaulting your senses, so you’ll buy more products. Advertisers are spending a lot of money to control you; Fox News has manipulated you to buy guns and get ready for civil war. Do you want a civil war? I don’t; I love you as a fellow citizen.
I could spend months cataloging Fox News lies and propaganda. We all know Fox News is a propaganda arm of the Trump administration. Sadly, there are only two fact checks against Fox News on Politifact. I’m guessing the editors started fact-checking then gave up when they saw the mountain of work in front of them.
Beyond the lies, Fox News is a producer of fear. The media we consume every day gets people emotional, on purpose, for profit. We are targets with big red dollar signs on our heads, ready for the fleecing. 🐏🐑
Trump is a Propaganda Machine
Donald J. Trump is a pathological liar. It is a proven fact that he constantly lies. Trump has mentioned fake news over 500 times on Twitter alone. I can’t imagine how many times he has said it in total, but it’s a lot.
Propaganda is communication that is used primarily to influence an audience and further an agenda, which may not be objective and may be presenting facts selectively to encourage a particular synthesis or perception, or using loaded language to produce an emotional rather than a rational response to the information that is presented.
Misinformed citizens are dangerous, and citizens are having a hard time finding the truth. When one person wields the truth, the truth corrupts absolutely. If everything is fake news, then what is the truth? Do followers of Trump and his administration believe they are arbiters of truth? Are we to believe everything they say and disregard all information? Some people think they do not need to wear a mask because Trump wanted to lie about the virus to prevent panic. People are drinking bleach, and Trump is making it socially acceptable to kill people with lies.
People are dying in large numbers, and at the current count, over 200,000 people are dead. The number dead is set to reach over 400,000 by January. I am very motivated to say something, I’ve been sitting here writing all evening and into the night. I can’t rest until November 3rd, there is too much at stake. Lives are at stake.
My uncle passed away on September 7th, COVID-19 killed him. My sister, a Nurse Practitioner, confirmed this fact. I attribute his death to Trump; he killed him with his lies. If you haven’t tuned into recent politics, Trump supporters say horrible things like those reviewed by this doctor.
Lies are profound, especially when they come from the mouth of The President of the United States of America. 🇺🇲
How have we sunk so low that many of us allow a man of no character to run our country in the mud?
Please sit up, please stand up, please do something, it’s time to pay attention.
Trump Stacks the Deck
Trump only lets loyal people into his circus. Loyalty, money, and a willingness to do anything to win is the ante on his table.
Trump is running the U.S. government like a mob. He has henchmen all around him doing his bidding. Most, if not all, of these henchmen, are corrupt. Here are a couple of noteworthy goons for posterity. It only takes a few minutes to realize we’re getting played.
Louis Dejoy – Postmaster General of the United States of America
Louis DeJoy, the Postmaster General of the United States of America, is a letter card for Trump. Louis is a Republican Party fundraiser who helped fund George W. Bush’s 2004 re-election campaign. Louis banned overtime for postal employees in June 2016 to save money. I’m okay with that move, but not removing machinery from post offices right before an election.
Former Head of the EPA
Scott Pruitt, the former corrupt EPA head, sued the EPA before becoming head of the EPA. Yes, he’s that corrupt. Scotty boy stole your money. No big deal; he’s back to lobbying so he can steal more of your money.
Nationalism is Gross
If Nationalism as an idea was a person, would you like them? Do you align with these values as a human on planet earth? 🌎
- I believe I am superior because I live within specific coordinates on a circle in space.
- If you’re not with me, you’re against me.
- I don’t care if I hurt people of another nation.
- I’ll do anything to improve the status of my country.
- I’ll indoctrinate people and make them believe the same way as I do.
It’s sad that some of us feel the need to make speeches about why Nationalism is a Bad Thing ™.
It is a bad thing, it always has been, and it is dangerous.
We must be honest with ourselves. We have a horrific history, but we have a chance to make amends. We the people need to face facts and do better.
“Independence is my happiness, and I view things as they are, without regard to place or person; my country is the world, and my religion is to do good.“— Thomas Paine
About 25% of eligible voters in the United States have lost their way. We need to help them come back to their senses. We do not need to be a schoolyard bully, and we don’t need to be friendly with dictators.
Our forefathers show us that we are noble and freedom-loving people. We crave freedom, and we know that freedom is not free. We love our country, we love our family, we love our neighbors, and we love the world. We want everyone to have a taste of our individual self-determination.
We must fight for our country; we must use our voices; we must take responsibility for the future of our country and its children.
Fear, Hate, Lies, and Division
The President of the United States of America is demanding patriotic education. In other words, he wants to control the minds of the people.
Let that sink in.
The following paragraph was taken from a description of the Adolf Hitler School.
Overall the curriculum at the AHS represented an outright rejection of previous educational ideas since it was anti-traditional, anti-knowledge, anti-Gymnasium, and anti-parent in disposition.
This passage from Wikipedia paints a picture for you if you didn’t already have one in your head. It’s scary stuff, and people are acting like all this is normal. It’s NOT NORMAL, and WE ARE BETTER THAN THIS!!!
If you support Trump right now, and you made it this far, I implore you to read my articles. I urge you to fact check me and let me know where I’m wrong. Please seek to understand what’s happening in our country and realize that our way of life will disappear if we don’t act now. We cannot let people believe any of this is normal; we must fight back and make our voices heard; we need to turn it up to eleven!
Trump will not commit to giving up power when he loses the election. We know that President Trump won’t commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses the election.
It’s time for you to start talking to your friends about this. It’s time for you to speak to your family about this.
It’s time to raise your voice and help Save The Republic right now.
