Developing Story: Trump As Threat to Society

While the title above may at first blush appear histrionic, it is actually a theme introduced in today's Washington Post by the writer Michael Gerson.  I am grateful for this column as it gives examples of Trump's typical verbal diatribes and how very inappropriate they are for a President or a Presidential candidate.

There was also a release yesterday of a statement from a relative of Anne Frank, who herself was in a concentration camp apparently.  This statement gave a clear, credible and telling comparison of Trump to Hitler.  Comparing people to Hitler has become almost a cliche.  Sadly, in this case the comparison is apt.

I will have more on this very important topic soon.

'You don't need to successfully ignite a world war, acquire authority, or even kill many people in order to be a fascist,' writes Justin Mueller. That said, if we laugh too much at Donald Trump, the result will not be one little bit funny. (Image: DonkeyHotey/flickr/cc via Common Dreams)
