    Default They hanged Mussolini from a lamp post...

    If it was good enough for Il Duce, it ought to be good enough for Il Douche.

    And maybe mr. barr as well. The question really has now become "just how far are we willing to let this ****ole go?"

    Didn't happen until Italy had been invaded by both the Allies and the Germans. It can't happen here!

    Rome at least had the excuse of lead in the drinking water... poisoning the aristocrats, not just the hapless Flint types.

    I'm really disturbed by liberals adopting the sort of violent rhetoric the right has been using. Why sink to their level?

    Yes, because we know from our resident right wingers that they can grasp a dandelion seed and float across a field and disappear over the horizon.

    They need only one smear suggesting a left wing lie, to justify all of Trump's thousands of lies.

    They need only one smear of Kamala Harris, to justify Trump's many molestations of women.

    That said, I was kind of hoping that Trump would get hit by lightning on the 4th. It would have been a lifetime of surreal.

    I was quite sure you would get banned on that one.

    I wasn't referring to conservatives on this forum, I was referring to our current president.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/10/u...y-clinton.html
    WILMINGTON, N.C. — Donald J. Trump on Tuesday appeared to raise the possibility that gun rights supporters could take matters into their own hands if Hillary Clinton is elected president and appoints judges who favor stricter gun control measures.
    Repeating his contention that Mrs. Clinton wanted to abolish the right to bear arms, Mr. Trump warned at a rally here that it would be “a horrible day” if Mrs. Clinton were elected and got to appoint a tiebreaking Supreme Court justice.
    “If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks,” Mr. Trump said, as the crowd began to boo. He quickly added: “Although the Second Amendment people — maybe there is, I don’t know.”

    No equation of the dead Duce's fate and our current president, please. As Michelle Obama said, we should go high. Not to mention the OP is the kind of thing the Secret Service might glom on to.

    Yup.


    I wonder how [redacted] is going to justify forcible rape on a minor child?


    Will the evangelicals clamor to stop her abortion because she is bearing the Messiah, The Chosen One, here to guide us along the path to eternal want and dissolute, wastrel cruelty?





    Probably.

    Saw an article today. That, natch, I can't find. Looks like the cops went in on Saturday AM forcibly. Broke down his doors on East 71st with either crowbars or a battering ram.

    Not fooling around. That's some expensive mahogany they trashed.

    Although anyone who has read the forum at all realizes I'm not a fan of Mr Trump, he's not nearly as bad as Mussolini.

    I do like this quote attributed to him, probably falsely: "It is not impossible to govern the Italians, merely useless."

    I'm not so sure I agree. Circumstances differed. While our checks and balances are imperfect, they tend to keep Trump moderately at bay. Our press is freer than Italy's at the time Mussolini's censorship was in full swing and thoroughly controlled by the Fascists. We should recall that Mussolini's rise to power was preceded by his time as a columnist. Like Trump, he switched philosophies first being a "socialist" but then. see sawing to facism. He was well aware that reducing the role of the free press was one of his most important missions. Almost all of his behaviors find a mirror in Trump. The real difference can be said to be a matter of degrees, but one can easily speculate that with more power, Trump would devolve to more Draconian and authoritarian rule.

    The differences are not so much between the men but rather about the time, place and context. It's impossible to say with assurance just how far Trump would go had he freer reign, but he doesn't, at least not yet. The parallels are inescapable.

    Oh, I don't disagree. Given a free hand and enough power, Trump might be as bad, or maybe even worse. With Narcissistic Personality Disorder and a vestigial conscience at best, the potential is certainly there for some very, very bad behavior. What he does in cases where he can get away with it is instructive; child abuse as official federal policy, to mention only one example. Two things restrain him - the institutions of the United States; separation of powers, a reasonably functional democracy, a free press, etc. - and his utter blithering incompetence; no attention span, ignorance of history, horrible management skills, and a raging out-of-control case of Dunning-Kruger. There's also Trump's lack of convictions or political philosophy. Mussolini believed in something beyond the greater glory of Benito; as far as I can tell, Mr. Trump mostly doesn't. Aside from a desire to look grand and glorious, and a visceral hatred of immigrants, (probably related to his pathological fear of contamination) there isn't much there.

    But again, he hasn't been nearly as bad as Mussolini.

    You wouldn't use the word 'assassination', now would you? It was more mob justice, vigilantism. Not 'lynching', because that word carries heavy meaning in the USA.
