IS TRUMP THE PRECURSOR TO BIG
Is it possible that George Orwell’s dystopian novel “1984” is slowly becoming a reality? A few days ago in “Ramblings 2018 (13) I spoke of Trump setting up his own “Ministry of Truth” and introducing “Newspeak”. This was my conclusion after reading that at a rally in Kansas City he told the audience “Stick with us. Don’t believe the crap you see from these people, the fake news. … What you’re seeing and what you’re reading is not what’s happening.” This is about as close to Orwellian as you can get.
It is almost incomprehensible how Trump praises the dictators of the world and reviles his friends and allies. That is until you look at it from the point that Trump is enthralled by so called strong leaders, men who subjugate and terrorize their own people. Mayhaps it is the bully within screaming to get out and run wild. Trump lacks humanity or empathy, people mean nothing to him.
His latest proclamation is his threat to shut the government down if he doesn’t get the money to build his version of the “Berlin Wall” across the border with Mexico. This is not a president it is a spoiled brat who, when he cannot get his way resorts to childish threats.
Donald J. Trump is a master of the chaotic he seems to thrive on creating dissention and ambiguity with the right hand not knowing what the left is doing. It is established that he tries to run the country like one of his businesses where he allows no disagreement and considers himself to be the greatest deal maker ever created. His Hubris knows no bounds.
Because Trumps’ supporters think that he and only he speaks the truth they are harassing and threatening media reporters at his rallies the Ministry of Truth is slowly gaining ground. Trump is laying the ground work and “1984” might be “2024” or sooner. It is well established that Trump is an invertebrate liar who has difficulty distinguishing fake from real. His rampage against the “News Media” is indicative of a would be pompous “Tin Pot Dictator” who cannot accept criticism in any form what so ever. He is the little boy who when things don’t go his way picks up his marbles and goes home.
