In Search Of A ‘Reichstag Fire’ Moment

Recent situations have shown that Trump’s presidency is not as popular as some bloggers and writers would have you believe…..

Trump has had purges, would be scandals, bad press and a meltdown over Twitter, massive protests…….he needs an occurrence to get his presidency on track……

He, Trump, needs something that can change the road that his presidency is traveling…..a little of my now famous historical perspective would fit nicely…….

Given his serious unpopularity, an incident for illegal power grab is increasingly a dangerous possibility.

Donald Trump and his top Islamophobe nomenklatura gathered at the White House, now led by the militant crusader Stephen Bannon, are on a desperate lookout for their “Reichstag Fire” and their favourite propaganda outlet, Fox News, is franticly searching for it – even in Canada.

“Reichstag Fire” was an arson attack on the Reichstag, the German parliament, in Berlin on February 27, 1933. The incident was soon abused by Adolf Hitler and his gang to demand a suspension of civil liberties in systematic preparation for his putsch for total fascist power.

Please if any of the Right wing bloggers read this…I am NOT calling Trump a fascist….only that he needs something like the “fire” to sway the people to his visions.

  1. Let’s hope if he finds his “fire” he doesn’t drive the country to have a fire sale. It’s late and I want to call him every name in the book.. whatever book that is.

    1. The “Book” you are looking for is The Bible and The Bible says that we are to place ourselves willingly under those appointed to lead us because it is God who decides who are to be the leaders and they are in office for our own good. That is what The Bible Teaches and that is the only “Book” that counts!

    1. Accusations again? Read the whole thing….I said he was looking for a situation that could break the bullshit he is getting….I made a point to say that it was the only thing I could think of at the time…thanx for that

  2. Normally I like to tussle over Trump and his gang of thugs, but this has deteriorated into the surreal…have a nice day.

  3. One of the most famous saints of “Christian” historical importance was a man named Thomas Aquinas, who stated, “Beware the man of one book.” Sounds as if he knew exactly what he was talking about….

    The whole world is in conflict because of the belief that one possesses the ‘only’ version of truth.

    To paraphrase Will S., the world is much more than is contained in one philosophy…..

    Don’t worry about the Fire; if they really think they need one, they’ll manufacture it…. Worked so well on 9/11/01, people are still buying into it….

    gigoid, the dubious

    1. “Knowledge is no guarantee of good behavior, but ignorance is a virtual guarantee of bad behavior.”

      GB Shaw said…”Beware of false knowledge; it is more dangerous than ignorance.”

      I believe Pope was right…”A little learning is a dangerous thing.”

      I have shot my wad…LOL chuq

      1. LOL… Okay, one last shot… “Giving every man a vote has no more made men wise and free than Christianity has made them good.” — H.L. Mencken
