MAGATS are proud of Donald Trump. Very Proud Indeed.

I’ve put this up a few times and thought it was worth posting again.

MAGATS are not sad, affronted or lacking in self respect, they are proud. Very proud.

They proud that facts and experts don’t matter to them anymore. They are proud of their leader who tells it like it is, no matter what anyone else says. Тhey are proud of the lies they hold self evident come hell or high water. They are proud to be white, proud of the privilage, and proud to defend it any place, any time. They want their country back, a country that never existed.

MAGATS are totalitarians, nothing more, nothing less. They don’t give a shit if they get want.

The Origins of Totalitarianism
By Hannah Arendt
(excerpts)

The ideal subject of totalitarian rule is not the convinced Nazi or the convinced Communist, but people for whom the distinction between fact and fiction and the distinction between true and false no longer exist.

One could make people believe the most fantastic statements one day, and trust that if the next day they were given irrefutable proof of the falsehood, they would admire the leaders for their clever tactics.

Mass propaganda discovered that its audience was ready at all times to believe the worst, no matter how absurd, and did not particularly object to being deceived because it held every statement to be a lie anyhow.

Trump is so clever he drives liberals nuts. They lie, we lie, who cares? He says what we want to hear: Our way or the highway. We are very very proud of him.

2. They don't care.

They want what they want. To hell with the rest of the world. To hell with anyone who stands in the way. Get with the program or get out.

4. We are cleaved in two, irreparablely.

 

This cannot go on forever. It's swiftly becoming as dangerous a friction as a head on collision between matter and antimatter.

No guarantee either side will survive.

5. Actually not.

When the American Army entered Germany they could not find a single Nazi. Not even those in the Party were Nazis. They knew it was lies. They didn’t care before, now they cared a lot. It was all just one big horrible lie. Now there was a new New Order. Time to get with the Program.

8. Hitler didn't need Nazis.

 

The general population of Germany served his agenda just fine on their own.

11. The Historical context was very different (after WW I).

And the Great Depression didn't help. They exploited that with illusions of grandeur.

9. They are a shrinking minority of a minority (of voters).

Those attending are getting paid to be there.

He lies about everything. His base is not growing.
