Goebbels, Goering, Hess, Himmler and Eichman are some of the names you’ll hear if you were to ask the question “who admired Adolf Hitler?” Those names all sound familiar because they are some of the worst humanity has ever had to offer. Lunacy tends to mesh with lunacy. If you knew nothing of Adolf Hilter other than these men were his friends and closest confidants, you would still be able to conclude that Hitler was a sadistic bastard just from the company he kept.
Donald Trump reminds a lot of people of Adolf Hitler. His rise to power comes with a political revolution built on hate, fear and lies. His followers are racist, misogynist, xenophobic a**holes with a propensity for violence. His ideas to “make America great” include outlawing an entire religion until we can “figure this out.” Hitler rose the same way. His followers were of the same ilk. When he figured out the “final solution” it was already too late for millions of innocent people. In short, Donald Trump’s candidacy is as frightening as it is ludicrous.
Trump already has the endorsement of a team of certifiable idiots, including Dennis Rodman and Sarah Palin, but now even they seem mild when compared to Trump’s newest fan, North Korea’s own evil dictator and human rights violator extraordinaire, Kim Jong-Un. Yes, you read that right. The Supreme Leader of North Korea, America’s sworn enemy, has endorsed Donald Trump for president and urges all Americans to cast their vote for him.
An editorial in The DPRK Today, a state-run and Jong-Un sanctioned newspaper, calls Donald Trump a “wise politician” and “far-sighted candidate” who could unite the Korean peninsula. How? Well, that’s simple: Trump has said that he doesn’t believe the United States should get involved if North Korea, a nuclear dictatorship run by a madman, were to invade South Korea, a democratic republic looking to mind its own business and stay separate from the long-estranged north:
Yes do it, now … Who knew that the slogan ‘Yankee Go Home’ would come true like this? The day when the ‘Yankee Go Home’ slogan becomes real would be the day of Korean Unification.”
By “Korean unification” they, of course, mean the North Korean invasion of the south and the subsequent destruction and imprisonment of an entire nation of free people. With a “great leader” like Donald Trump at the helm, North Korea sees an opportunity to sit at a negotiating table with the United States once again. Not because they’ve evolved or their position on human rights or their nuclear program has changed, but because they figure the guy sitting across from them is a sellout.
The North Koreans even took their endorsement a step further by making fun of “Dull Hillary”:
The president that US citizens must vote for is not that dull Hillary – who claimed to adapt the Iranian model to resolve nuclear issues on the Korean Peninsula – but Trump, who spoke of holding direct conversation with North Korea.”
The “Iranian model” is unappealing to the North Koreans because of the hell the Iranian economy went through as the rest of the world lost patience with them and the shell of its former self their nuclear program turned into. Kim Jong-Un would much rather see Trump at his dinner table so they can talk about how big their peckers are while they torture some commoners.
Over the top? Maybe. Apologize for it? Not gonna happen. Maybe after the American people serve Trump an electoral embarrassment the likes of which Barry Goldwater would laugh at he can go spend some time with his new BFF.
