Destroying thousands of families, and taking away the parents of American citizens? Well, that all depends on how crazy everyone else is willing to get.

I can think of a labor pool ready and willing to do that job.
Militias.

A bunch of conservatives with guns ready to do Herr Trump's bidding. Shocking

Even Ammon Bundy offered an alliance with the natives. Granted, culture can change quickly under the right context, but at this point most militia groups are a hell of a lot more sympathetic towards Standing Rock than they are towards the federal government.

Ah the old "I'll give you these goods worth $24 for this useless island" tactic. To be fair it also worked against France and Russia.

All that is required for evil to triumph is a low voter turnout.

But it seems right now that the only actual differences between Trump and Hitler are that Trump was never a painter and he didn't lose the first time he tried

Actually there are quite stark differences between Hitler and Trump.


[*]Hitler never had a whiff of scandal about him


Geli Raubal would beg to disagree. For more comprehensive list of scandals check Kershaw or Ullrich.

Quote: [*]Hitler was competent and could apply himself


But he didn't know how to delegate power which put strain on him during war.

Quote: [*]Hitler came from lowly a background and worked his way up


Lowly is questionable. It was more like a middle class if I recall correctly.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

True, he didn't get elected by republican votes alone. He had help from apathetic democrats -- who either didn't bother to vote, went third party (which is just a fail) or actually felt -- "I hate Hillary so much I'll just vote for Trump -- I don't give a fuck and won't bother to watch."

Then the next morning "what the fuck?! He won?! Let's get organized and protest this."

Facepalm

All it took in some states 1 or 2% (yes I'm looking at you Michigan, Wisconsin and Florida)....to change history.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

The bbc reports that one of the reasons for his victory and why pollsters got it wrong was the hidden female vote which apparently was one of the keys to victory for the beast, allegedly female voters for trump didn't want to admit that they were planning to vote for him to pollsters because they were embarrassed that's from a republican pollster btw so there it is girls the trump victory was all the woman's fault... Mmm kinda reminds me of something.

And complacent ones, too.

RE: President Trump: How The F**k Did It Happen?
Missed reading a lot of posts, and too late to read them now, so this comment may have been made before.

Hearing his words after the meeting with Obama I thought back onto Ttump's tone shift just before and after the election and then after today's meeting - more subdued is one description.

Could it be that Mr Trump had suddenly realised he might win, then had won and has now come to realise that he has a new, 24/7/365 x 4, job with hundreds of aspects of which he has little or no knowledge or experience - where he will be soooo dependent on advice from his cabinet? People he has partly picked for their support in his campaign it seems. Good qualifications?

I would lay odds on his first thought, on passing the magic 270, was, "Oh, shit, what have I done?"

Tomorrow is precious, don't ruin it by fouling up today.

He just looked like he was totally out of his depth. He rolled every word over 3 times in his mouth before permitting it to come out. He was completely awestruck and looked scared. That won't last though - the king will rule and become the god of all - be he benevolent or vengeful, you will pray to him. Love or hate, it doesn't matter.
