6. That is the desirable environment of a Fascist.

Truth becomes irrelevant, and even dangerous. It gets replaced by a bunch of lies repeated over and over again. Correcting the lies becomes so tiresome and pointless that everybody gives up and gives in.

...thatís a great phrase, Iíll have to use it. Not knowing for a second where it originated. The likelihood that djt has read Goebbles...zero. Odds of miller reading it...guaranteed.

I'm not sure Dotard even knows that bookstores exist and they say he doesn't read much at all. He may keep them laying around to stay "connected" to Fred.

31. Agree that he has them but I doubt that he's read them and I'm sure he can't quote them...



I think he's got the retention of a gnat. The only reason he said that is because he heard someone else say that in the hallway on the way in. Just imagine that phrase in Stephen Miller's voice and it sounds so much more calculated. From Trump - its just the noise that comes out of his mouth as the wind whistles through his empty head.

8. On Dehumanization - -

 

'Less Than Human': The Psychology Of Cruelty

During the Holocaust, Nazis referred to Jews as rats. Hutus involved in the Rwanda genocide called Tutsis cockroaches. Slave owners throughout history considered slaves subhuman animals. In Less Than Human, David Livingstone Smith argues that it's important to define and describe dehumanization, because it's what opens the door for cruelty and genocide.

"We all know, despite what we see in the movies," Smith tells NPR's Neal Conan, "that it's very difficult, psychologically, to kill another human being up close and in cold blood, or to inflict atrocities on them." So, when it does happen, it can be helpful to understand what it is that allows human beings "to overcome the very deep and natural inhibitions they have against treating other people like game animals or vermin or dangerous predators."

. . .

When the Nazis described Jews as Untermenschen, or subhumans, they didn't mean it metaphorically, says Smith. "They didn't mean they were like subhumans. They meant they were literally subhuman."

. . .

Then, within the human category, there has historically been a hierarchy. In the 18th century, white Europeans ó the architects of the theory ó "modestly placed themselves at the very pinnacle." The lower edges of the category merged with the apes, according to their thinking.

So "sub-Saharan Africans and Native Americans were denizens of the bottom of the human category," when they were even granted human status. Mostly, they were seen as "soulless animals." And that dramatic dehumanization made it possible for great atrocities to take place.

https://www.npr.org/2011/03/29/134956180/criminals-see-their-victims-as-less-than-human

----------------------------------------------------

I would like to point out that it's very hard to go to war and kill people if we haven't dehumanized them -- gooks, japs, jerries, and so forth.

15. This is an exaggeration. I know things are very bad...

...but Heinrich Himmler was sui generis. Comparing anyone to him is absurd. But if you had said Rudolf Hess, or Martin Borrmann, you'd be at least in the ballpark of plausibility...

11. It is becoming increasingly scary for all PoCs. Also more difficult

to convince oneself that this is not politically and morally normal. Helps to remember we are better than the Putin puppet who kept, according to what his first wife told her divorce attorney, a copy of Mein Kampf in his bedside cabinet.

12. As someone said..that is the language of genocide.



Did you know, the McKinley and Teddy Roosevelt Administration used those terms towards the Filipinos when we brought "democracy" to the Philippines in 1900.

Mass slaughter was the result. We also tortured and waterboarded them.
In 1900.

See: The Imperial Cruise, by James Bradley.

They were dehumanized with words like "redskin", "savages" etc.

21. So he finally shows his true heart-

This proves where Trump's slimy lizard heart lies-with the Nazi regime. He is one sick boogie! He is not fit to wash the feet of these tired immigrants who merely wish to come to a land where they aren't afraid of the crime. I think they would best stay in Mexico. This country is no longer a place where they can feel safe.
