America's Agitator

Donald Trump Is the World's Most Dangerous Man


snip//

Donald Trump is the leader of a new, hate-filled authoritarian movement. Nothing would be more harmful to the idea of the West and world peace than if he were to be elected president. George W. Bush's America would seem like a place of logic and reason in comparison.

Trump Wants A Ruthless America

"Believe me, I'll change things. And again, we're going to be so respected. I don't want to use the word 'feared,'" he told the audience. But that is precisely what Trump wants: to be feared. His bid for the White House, long ridiculed, is a fight for a ruthless, brutal America. Behind his campaign slogan "Make America great again!" is the vision of a country that no longer cares about international treaties, ethnic minorities or established standards of decency.

The Rest of the Story.. Good Article!http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/donald-trump-is-the-most-dangerous-man-in-the-world-a-1075060.html

16. If you reeely don't get it, I'll explain it: There is a small sub-sector of scary movies where

the virtuous heroine is alone in the house. She receives a phone call where the caller hangs up. A series of threatening phone calls ensue, and she calls the cops. They start investigating. The caller tells her things about herself that terrifies her because he seems to know things about her. Finally, the cops tell her that the threatening calls are coming from inside the house. In other words, the dangerous psycho is actually in the house with her, ramping up the terror and danger.

14. Hetzer: rabble-rouser, malicious agitator

Good word. Particularly if it's commonly understood as "malicious agitator."
