The president's base seems to think destroying our democracy is funny, entertaining.

they are enjoying watching a reality show, they are living a reality show
unfortunately real lives will suffer.

we were watching a film with a section on WWI. American Soldiers are climbing out of the trench to attack. One man relaxes and slides back down into the trench. The class laughed. After it was over, the Teacher (who had stormed the beach in Normandy) told us that the Soldier in the film had been shot in the forehead.

"If you've ever wondered what you would have done in 1930s Germany or during the civil rights movement, congratulations: you're doing it now."

I think we need to suspend Godwin's Law temporarily.
