Parallels

Sometimes being under the weather has its advantages.  Such as catching up on some reading.

About two weeks ago I began reading Markus Zusak’s “The Book Thief”.  I’m not through reading it yet but there is a scene in the story that has resonated with me since I read it, which I want to share here.

For anyone not familiar with the subject matter of “The Book Thief”, it revolves around a young girl living in Nazi Germany.  The scene I wish to share is on page 105.  It is 1940 and the Hubermann family has gathered for the yearly celebration of Hitler’s birthday.  The characters involved are Hans Hubermann (the father), Hans Junior (his adult son) and Liesel, the young girl.  Understand that Hans Junior is a Nazi and his father is not.

“You’ve never cared about this country,” said Hans Junior.  “Not enough, anyway.”

Papa’s eyes started corroding.  It did not stop Hans Junior.  He looked now for some reason at the girl.  With her three books standing upright on the table, as if in conversation, Liesel was silently mouthing the words as she read from one of them.  “And what trash is this girl reading?  She should be reading ‘Mein Kampf’“.

Liesel looked up.

“Don’t worry, Liesel,” Papa said.  “Just keep reading.  He doesn’t know what he’s saying.”

But Hans Junior wasn’t finished.  He stepped closer and said, “You’re either for the Fuhrer or against him–and I can see that you’re against him.  You always have been.”  Liesel watched Hans Junior in the face, fixated on the thinness of his lips and the rocky line of his bottom teeth.  “It’s pathetic–how a man can stand by and do nothing as a whole nation cleans out the garbage and makes itself great.”

After I read this scene it took me two days to get back to reading the book.

The parallels between Nazi Germany and America in 2017 in this scene alone struck me.  “You’re either for him or against him”.  If I had a dollar for each time someone has said that phrase to me in 2017, I’d be sitting on a beach somewhere reading this book.  “…a whole nation cleans out the garbage and makes itself great”.  Sounds familiar.

What “cleaning out the garbage…to make itself great” meant in Nazi Germany under ASSHOLE Hitler:  Jews, Gypsies, Poles, Slavs, Jehovah Witnesses, clergy, Communists, Socialists, prostitutes, drunks, disabled, gays and anyone else they felt wasn’t worthy.

What “cleaning out the garbage…to make itself great–again” means in America 2017 under ASSHOLE Trump:  Muslims, disabled, gays, transgenders, women, refugees, Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, the NFL, generally people of any color, the DREAMers, climate change, NATO, anyone who causes a “problem” for him (Comey, Yates, etc.) and anyone who doesn’t agree with what he says or wants.  Especially on Twitter.

Considering this book was published twelve years ago, maybe the author is psychic.  Or are there truly that many parallels between the ASSHOLE who once ruled and ruined Germany and the ASSHOLE who is now trying to rule and ruin America?

I Can’t Be The Only One

I can’t be the only one who truly believes ASSHOLE has dementia, can I?

There have been so many clues it should be obvious to all of us.

First of all, who doesn’t think it’s odd that Trumpette (Ivanka) seems to appear out of nowhere wherever ASSHOLE happens to be.  She attends meetings she has no business being at (the G20 and most recently ASSHOLE’S debt ceiling meeting with members of the House and Senate).  She even just “popped in” on a NYT interview and brought her kid along.  Nobody seems to know what her role in the White House is.  Some say she’s ASSHOLE’S “personal assistant”.  To many that means “caregiver”.

Aside from the fact that he is about as coherent as a drunken sailor when he speaks, repeats himself constantly (count how many “verys” he says in the first clip of the video below) and can’t read papers or concentrate long (some claim he doesn’t even know how to read), take a look at the many other detailed incidents that more than certainly point to dementia:

 

Wouldn’t it be appropriate for the “President” to be in on the briefing?  Maybe there’s a good reason why he wasn’t in on it.  Possibly because he had no clue what was going on? Is he sleeping under that damn hat?

 

 

Per the journalist ASSHOLE was allegedly sleeping.  Could be.  Or maybe he was just in a dementia daze.  If it weren’t for May, he’d probably still be sitting there!

 

 

My favorite one from this video is when he misses the fucking car!  If it were a snake it would’ve bit him!

We could take a few other things into consideration in these situations.  We all know ASSHOLE is far from being the brightest bulb in the pack.  But to miss a huge limo right in front of you? There is also the possibility he’s doing drugs.  It is well-known that he likes to “shoot the snow” once in a while.  More than likely it is dementia.  If you compare a current video of him talking to one of him talking thirty years ago, there is quite a difference.

We may never know.  For now what we do know is that there is a lot not right in ASSHOLEland.
