The biggest difference I see with Trump compared to the rise of Hitler, is that Hitler very methodically used misinformation and propaganda. Trump doesn't have to. We have a culture of America that no longer cares about information; they demonize higher education, they scoff at science, fact checking is a liberal device, and sourcing your argument is mocked, they have created their own bubble to which they live in. The GOP has been wooing and catering this portion of society so long that it's just gotten out of control. Trump has pounced on this and spoon fed this culture, that and our 24 hr news media have given him free advertising. He could lie to their faces and it doesn't matter, he has lied to their faces and they don't care. He's basically called them "poorly educated" and they are completely unfazed.

This is undeniably a monster the GOP has created, by having to cater to this crowd in order to get their numbers. It's like having a pet dragon; they're cute when they're small, but you kept feeding it and now it's fully grown. There is absolutely no way to control it, as friendly and innocuous as it may appear it's extremely dangerous because just the slightest sneeze could kill you. It's dangerous because there is no way of predicting what it will do, it answers to no one.

Ease up. He's tired from trashing an Australian MP's office today.

This is my feeling as well. He will fare very poorly among pretty much every minority demographic in addition to women and young voters. Even if people on the left are lukewarm toward Hillary, they will turn out in droves out of sheer disgust with Trump.

I just think he's that easily predictable. I think he's going to continue to manipulate the media so as to stop turning away reasonable voters in disgust. It's entirely unpredictable, and something we should genuinely fear for once (despite all the shit the media tries to make you to fear).

I must confess I don't either. This thread is weirdly passive-aggressive sometimes. I get the sense some people here don't like other people here!

The discourse is too hot to handle.
