No class, no integrity, no intellect, no clue.
American democracy is fragile, and unless care is taken it could follow the path of Nazi Germany in the 1930s.
Mixed in with many softer comments, that was the somewhat jaw-dropping bottom line of Barack Obama last night as, in a Q&A session before the Economic Club of Chicago, the Chicagoan who used to be president dropped a bit of red meat to a hometown crowd that likely is a lot closer to him than the man whose name never was mentioned: President Donald Trump.
The danger is “grow(ing) complacent,” Obama said. “We have to tend to this garden of democracy or else things could fall apart quickly.”
That’s what happened in Germany in the 1930s, which despite the democracy of the Weimar Republic and centuries of high-level cultural and scientific achievements, Adolph Hitler rose to dominate, Obama noted. “Sixty million people died…So, you’ve got to pay attention. And vote.”
Hey, if Trump is Literally Hitler™ as the empty suit is implying, then can we say that Obama is Literally Stalin™ now? ‘Cause it’s a damned sight closer to objective truth than pResident Shitstain’s cheap little smear is.
Why, oh why won’t the miserable little ball of nothing just dry up and blow away already?
