He Doesn’t Deserve This, Does He?
If you missed it, here is the link to Part 1 of this diary I posted this evening
A Glutton for Punishment
An Entirely Plausible Imaginary Scenario
Former Arizona Star editorial cartoonist David Fitzsimmons has an interesting article on his substack which is worth reading in full — What proud Aryan paints his face orange? An account of America when Trump defeated FDR in 1932
Donald Trump’s candidacy for President of the United States is being supported by the likes of Father Charles Coughlin.
At the time 30-million listeners were tuning into Father Coughlin a notorious Nazi apologist to listen to his weekly radio rants blaming the nation’s financial woes on the Jews. When Father Coughlin suggested Donald Trump would make a fine President and that he should run in the 1932 race for the White House against New York Governor Franklin Delano Roosevelt Trump took the bait and announced his candidacy, railing against “The Globalists” and “The Communists” and when Trump was asked about Father Coughlin’s anti-Semitic rants he always declined to rebuke the virulent views of his vocal supporter.
In addition, Trump’s refusal to criticize the newly elected leader of Germany, Adolf Hitler, who had promised to make Germany great again, mystified the American press. During his campaign Trump gave campaign speeches to German American clubs called “Bundts” in which he praised Hitler for Germany’s economic and political rebound from chaos, and he attacked the alliance of the western democracies and the League of Nations as wasteful expenses. Trump began echoing Hitler, promising to make American great again. The phrase caught on and became his campaign slogan.
After Trump is elected President in 1932 during the depths of the Great Depression, fast forward several years and read what happens until it is 1940 and Nazi Germany is in firm control of most of Europe and poised to invade Great Britain.
What happens next is entirely predictable.
Yesterday it was reported President Trump’s newly appointed Minister of Propaganda, Tucker Carlson, had flown to Berlin.
Some speculated it was to congratulate the Führer on behalf of the American President, on his coming defeat and conquest of Great Britain. Others speculated Carlson was there to interview Hitler and to inform the Führer that President Trump “who was looking forward to a fourth term”, was offering a deal, a deal to sign a historic pact agreeing to a New World Order.
At the same hour Carlson landed in Germany polling by CBS radio revealed that Senator Biden, who supported funding the Democrat’s robust military aid package in defense of Great Britain, was pulling ahead of the incumbent President. With England likely to fall under the iron boot of the Nazis within months, the American Presidential Election was only days away.
