It is very revealing that this pathetic Trump apologist tries to lessen the outrageous nature of Trump’s “Big Lie” propaganda and multiple attempts to keep himself in power after losing the 2020 election … by “ironically” pointing out that Jan. 6th was not up to the “fascist” standards of Hitler’s “Reichstag Fire” in 1933.
For that matter the Brazilian fanatics who copied Trump’s plans, directly appealing to the military to take power there and put Trump’s co-thinker Bolsonaro in power … also fell short of the full “fascist standard.”
Actually, the Reichstag Fire occurred after Hitler was “legally” appointed Chancellor in Germany, whereas Trump lost his election and all legal appeals. Nevertheless Trump and apparently some of his apologists apparently dream of “Making America Great Again” … “by any means necessary.”
Our Trump cultists and some other MAGAnuts seem terribly unhappy with legal processes. Some of course just hope Trump runs again and “legally” wins against the not especially popular Democrat Biden or against some other equally uncharismatic politician in 2024. This is actually not impossible …
But clearly other crazy elements are openly talking about “civil war,” searching for a more violent way to “Make America Great Again.” These are even willing to overthrow our Constitution and laws — as Trump already suggested might be necessary.
Don’t be a sucker for lunatic provocateurs who would happily bring this country over the abyss …
