Apropos de rien, the closest French word to TFA's name is trompe, which means "deceived."

Also, that man's head is literally shaped like an egg.

*sigh* These shiatstains are everywhere. It should not be a surprise when they pop their ugly, little heads out of the fetid swamps they festered in. The best we can hope for is that they won't succeed in other countries like they have here.

FTFA: he described woke culture as a plot to make "white, heterosexual, Catholic" men feel "so full of guilt" that they willingly abandon their "culture and civilization."

Deport him to Algeria. He can talk to them about saving their "culture and civilization."

He's not spreading these lies in a vacuum. France, a nation of very few Maquis and a lot of collaborators, spent many decades teaching the opposite to their children and sanitizing its history. They are not the first or last country to highlight feel good national myths at the expense of harsh truths. But you set the stage for aholes like this to double down on the lies down the line when you do that.

Garza and the Supermutants: Here in the US, it'll be a Smart Trump who does us in.


There is a line of reasoning which says that smart authoritarian strongmen are rare, because the breadth of knowledge, level of self-discipline, and accurate knowledge of your own flaws necessary to be a "wise" leader are in direct opposition to the absolute self-confidence and decisiveness necessary to hijack human psychology and be a convincing authoritarian leader.

Of course, rare doesn't mean impossible, but all of the examples I can think of from the 20th century were career military officers who rose to power in military juntas, which is a very different mindset than media personalities who run for office because they decide they know everything.

Now, if you're worried about a slightly-smarter Trump, (which, you have to admit is a very low bar,) then yeah, that's pretty scary.

The Venn diagram of the "immigrants are going to destroy us all" group and the "the Nazis weren't so bad, really" group is basically just a circle.

Perhaps, a grand wall to keep the vermin at bay.  Or, better yet.  A line of defenses.  A Maginot Line, if you will.   No immigrant would look down those defenses and dare enter nor feel welcomed in our great county, no?

And Germany will pay it, yes?

Americans got Trump into office.  If tens of millions of Americans can get so easily duped into voting for the Orange Man because of a few "Russian Facebook memes" then the country is headed for far, far worse than even Trump.

They have plenty of parties, it's not a 2 Party State.  They'll be fine.

If he's really running and he somehow wins, they have ways to blunt his power politically.

After a few years of neo-liberal policies from Macron, the pendulum is just swinging back a bit.  Probably not much to worry about.

Christ the embedded twitter link if him casually muzzle sweeping the reporters at a...trade show? before directly pointing it at someone.

His whole shtick could have been stopped there by someone pushing the muzzle up and punching him in the face.

Bingo. If Trump were any smarter, he wouldn't be Trump. The upside of democratic norms has always been far more consistent than continuing to defile them on the off chance he becomes dictator for life. His entire life has been about farking up and breaking shiat due to a combination of insatiable greed and unfathomable ignorance then letting his enablers clean up the mess.

All attempts at being a smarter Trump have been bogged down playing stupid in order to survive in today's GOP. It isn't a smarter Trumpian candidate that scares me, it's a Trumpian candidate with smarter enablers. Unfortunately, many enablers were able to cut their teeth during the Trump presidency and will be much more ready and able to facilitate their boss's stupidity right out of the gate if given the chance.

I'd be fairly surprised if Hitler had more than average intelligence (no idea how dumb Trump is), his inner circle wasn't exactly chosen for intelligence (I don't think he insisted on hiring only those dumber than himself, but you'd have to be pretty dumb to be an early Nazi).  The most common description of him was "that ridiculous little man".

If it hadn't been for that little time out they gave him (Weimar Germany always went easily on right wing terrorists, but don't even think of being a leftist) and the time to make some serious plans, there is little reason to think Hitler would be all that more successful than Trump (or maybe just his rise would have taken longer, and the Army would have been more ready).

I'm surprised that we don't have more psychopathic leaders like that: the ones that have zero contingency plans (well, Hitler's stated contingency plan was always suicide.  But then you'd have to believe his speeches).  If they don't realize they'll find out after farking around, then expect a nationwide finding out.  That type of thing allows for a bit brighter candle than Trump to still pull off the strut, and still fafo.

I'm thinking of someone like Nero: Evil and conceited, not a genius but clever and possessed of a good survival sense. Sure, he was driven out and forced to commit suicide after 14 years, but that's a relatively long reign for a Roman emperor.
