The Parallels are not a coincidence... they are a feature


Graphic mine

One feels a bit of Churchill might be in order...

I have thought carefully in these last days whether it was part of my duty to consider entering negotiations with That Man… I am convinced that every man of you would rise up and tear me from my place if I were for one moment to contemplate parley or surrender. If this long island story of ours is to end at last, let it end only when each one of us lies choking in his own blood upon the ground.

As in fuck off if you think we will ever give in to the tyranny of fascism... Whatever the cost we cannot such horror to stand...

Upon this battle depends the survival of Christian civilisation... The whole fury and might of the enemy must very soon be turned on us now... if we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age… Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that… men will still say, 'This was their finest hour.'

Of course they did not fail, and they did not fight just for a great orange turd to fuck it all over 75 years later. He cannot be allowed to continue this madness...

1. Churchill went against the grain.

“Yet in the most mean, cowardly, hypocritical way the British ruling class did all they could to hand Spain over to Franco and the Nazis. Why? Because they were pro-Fascist, was the obvious answer.”
― George Orwell, Fighting in Spain

Thankfully, not all. Great OP, Soph0571!

3. With orbs wide open

Nigel Hamilton's FDR at war trilogy blew my mind with things I never knew. The British Empire was fading - dissolving. Churchill was a great spiritual leader but his military strategies ended in disaster after disaster. FDR controlled Allied strategy globally. Canadian PM MacKenzie King was a close FDR friend. Morgenthau an FDR neighbor. MacArthur shook down Philippine President for 500k.

Hitler is old socks. A greater tell might be Trump contemporary strongman cabal because none of them like democracy - it's bad for incumbents.

5. The only way this fascist rollout can be stopped is with Action. Not law talk. Only law enforcement.

The law in action. Not in recitation.

7. After the gold rush

BY MARIE BRENNER
SEPTEMBER 1990

... John Walter works for the Trump Organization, and when he visits Donald in his office, Ivana told a friend, he clicks his heels and says, “Heil Hitler” ...

Ivana .. told her lawyer .. that from time to time her husband reads a book of Hitler’s collected speeches, My New Order, which he keeps in a cabinet by his bed. Kennedy now guards a copy of My New Order in a closet at his office, as if it were a grenade ...

“Did your cousin John give you the Hitler speeches?” I asked Trump ...

“Actually, it was my friend Marty Davis from Paramount who gave me a copy of Mein Kampf, and he’s a Jew.” (“I did give him a book about Hitler,” Marty Davis said. “But it was My New Order, Hitler’s speeches, not Mein Kampf. I thought he would find it interesting. I am his friend, but I’m not Jewish”) ...

8. Trump's copy of Hitler's speeches may be the only book he's ever liked.
