Thread Name: BS: Trump
Subject: RE: BS: Trump
"Jim, I disagreed strongly with almost all of Mrs Thatcher's policies, but as a leader and Conservative politician she was without parallel."
Not a question of her 'policies' - she was a self-declared fascist - it doesn't get much simpler than that.
Hitler was reckoned to be a 'good leader' - he was certainly idolised by a lorra-lorra people - it's where he led/she led them is what counts, not that they were good at it.
We know very little about Trump's 'policies' - his election campaign is based on hate-filled rhetoric and the hostile response to it is well-deserved and a relief.
I have little time for U.S. politics, but the thing I admire about the country is its cosmopolitan makeup- consisting of people who originated form all corners of the world - settlers, immigrants and refugees from persecution all coming together to make the richest and most powerful nation on the planet.
Trump has risen to prominence by preaching hatred of such people - basically, basically an attack on the people who went into the making of America.
You talk about genetic reliability - Trump's background shows him to come from merely one of the many hundreds of different nations that make up the country he is trying to take over.
Let's hope for many, many thousands more people out on the streets putting a stop to this looming disaster - neither the politicians or big-business can be trusted to.
