Donald Trump and his demons: Why the assault on democracy will get worse

Donald Trump is an authoritarian and an autocrat. For him and others of such ilk, violence is political currency in the form of raw power. Autocrats and authoritarians such as Trump are de facto crime bosses who just happen to be leaders of their respective countries.

As such, Donald Trump uses violence in an effort to intimidate his enemies and control the public. Trump also uses violence to control his allies, servants and other supporters.

Trump’s most recent threats of violence are part of a much larger campaign of stochastic terrorism which began with his presidential campaign in 2015 and continue to the present.

Trump, his spokespeople, conservative media and other agents have repeatedly slurred leaders and members of the Democratic Party as being traitors who should be put in prison or even executed. Trump’s impeachment has amplified those threats of violence.

Trump’s regime has also targeted nonwhite people — especially immigrants and refugees— with violent threats.

The Trump regime’s campaign of stochastic terrorism has been horribly effective. Hate crimes and other racially motivated violence against nonwhites, Muslims and Jews have reached record highs during Trump’s time in office. Mosques and Jewish temples have been attacked by white supremacist terrorists who are encouraged by the Trump regime and its leadership role in the racist and nativist global right.

At the link above they give a lot of examples and other information.  Worth a read.   Hugs

    • Hello Brian. I agree. Look at the damage he has done world wide in just three years. Also look how many spin offs he has inspired. Hugs

      • Spin offs is the right word… Politicians being stupid they tend to imitate each other… (eg. Boris Judas Johnson) 🙂

  2. Quite simply … he brings out the worst in people. Thoughts/feelings/opinions that have been repressed for years (because that’s what living in a civilized society means) have been allowed … yea, encouraged(!) … to come out into the open. Even when he’s gone, it will probably take years to quash down the ugliness and return to some sort of humane living.
