Trump Using Language of the 3rd Reich

    LTI - Lingua Tertii Imnperii, Victor Klemperer, was a Professor of Literature at the Dresden University of Technology who lived in Dresden throughout WW2.  He wrote "The Language of the Third Reich: A Philologist's Notebook" post-WW2.  He also kept a daily diary of the Nazi years in which he made observations of the use and progression of demagogic propaganda produced by the Nazis in Germany as the nation sank into destruction.

    There are many, many examples of how Donald Trump has used lies, self praise, deflection, attacks and diabolically black or celestially white descriptions to indoctrinate his cult, in a fashion similar to the LTI.

    Below is an analysis of of one Tweet Trump made yesterday, with Klemperer's description of Nazi propaganda which he noted in his diary in February, 1938.

    Trump, yesterday, see also link:

    It is up to the States to distribute the vaccines once brought to the designated areas by the Federal Government. We have not only developed the vaccines, including putting up money to move the process along quickly, but gotten them to the states. Biden failed with Swine Flu!

    Klemperer, from LTI, Wikipedia:

    February 19, 1938 - ...the basic principle of the whole language of the Third Reich became apparent to me: a bad conscience; its triad: defending oneself, praising oneself, accusing - never a moment of calm testimony.

    Breakdown analysis of the triad:


    Trump - "It is up to the States to distribute the vaccines once brought to the designated areas by the Federal Government."

    LTI - "defending oneself"


    Trump - "We have not only developed the vaccines, including putting up money to move the process along quickly, but gotten them to the states."

    LTI - "praising oneself"


    Trump - "Biden failed with Swine Flu!"

    LTI - "accusing"


    Now . . . Four

    One of his untergebene gave "him" a gun in the bunker so he could shoot himself...

    We can only be so damn lucky...



    Looks like Josh Hawley will contest the electoral college vote on January 6th

    Edit to change Josh Hawkeye to Josh Hawley

    Spellcheck wanted Harley this time.

    Is he the team leader of the Avengers?

    I saw "seditious" trending on Twitter all by its lonesome without a hashtag, I click on that to find it is mostly because of Josh Hawley; it's kind of amazing how many people think to use that word when refering to him!

    I think spellcheck helped and I didn't catch it.



    White trash hillbilly senator from the great state of Miz-ur- ree!

    Politico says will be basically much ado about nothing, giving them a little more time for hootin and hollerin is all

    NEW: HAWLEY's challenge to at least one state's presidential electors will prolong the Jan. 6 process of certifying Biden's win. But it's extremely unlikely to do more than delay and give Trump's allies a chance to vent and force a vote.

    I'd like to say, though, that according to (racist, mho) rules of the day, we wouldn't dare do this kind of joking if it involved  persons of another skin color. Those with darker skin tone must instead always be addressed with dignity no matter how goofy or stupid they are.

    Has there ever been a black Senator as crackpot as apparatchiks Kelly, Perdue, Josh or Rand? I can't recall any.

    Even GOP fave Clarence Thomas is not as nutjob as his "if Jews had guns blah Holocaust" white wife Ginni.

    Your rule doesn't exist

    Trump said Obama wasn't born in the United States

    Obama was called a liar during a State of the Union address

    Gingrich said Obama was not a real President.

    The New York Post had cartoon that depicted Obama as a monkey shot by police

    The Squad was told to go back to where they came from

    Representative Fredricka Wilson was called a lightweight and a liar.

    It was said the Kamala Harris got to advance by working on her back.


    I don't see reluctance of members of Congress, WH officials, or media to make "jokes"



    And all you'll get is the chirping of crickets
    from the person you've responded to here.


    Twitter's police left this one alone; they didn't put a "disputed" warning on it. That make me laugh!

    some perspective:

    Over 3,000 Americans dying from COVID daily, Israel will complete vaccination of it's entire population in 3 1/4 months, and Trump Warp Speed will take over 5 years at the current rate. If he was reelected, we'd be having another surge next winter.

    For the "it's the state's fault cult" Trump clearly doesn't give a crap about the virus or the sick, dead or dying, we need a national plan, not blame shifting and Trump stoking riots to steal the election.

    Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,

    Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,

    To the last syllable of recorded time;

    And all our yesterdays have lighted fools

    The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!

    Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,

    That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,

    And then is heard no more. It is a tale

    Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,

    Signifying nothing.

    Nunes and Jordan will come to regret the cowbells hung around their necks.

    Just sharing a popular photoshop meme if you haven't seen it, I've seen it many times:

    I'm betting on #6 on Miles' list:

    meanwhile political people are noticing:


    I think #3 is the only one he hasn't done yet.
