Donald Trump has become quite a spectacle in mainstream media as the 2016 Presidential Campaign has progressed. It’s clear that, although he’s a racist, sexist, narcissistic asshole, he’s extremely entertaining to watch. No one can deny laughing at all those hilarious memes about him. No one can deny laughing at anything he’s ever said or done, or at what people have said to and about him. But we’ve lost sight of the reality of the situation.
People are so often surprised in history class as they learn about Adolf Hitler’s rise to power, after which he executed the persecution of 10,000,000 innocent human beings. How did he do that? How could anyone let him do that? How was he able to brainwash a nation? How is it possible that such a terrible man so easily came to be the leader of Germany? How is it possible that people so willingly turned a blind eye to the heinous crimes he committed? How? they ask. How?
He did exactly what Trump is doing now. He persuaded the masses, through his hateful speech, that a certain group was to blame for all their nation’s problems. He instilled fear and loathing in huge quantities of people with his bias and prejudice. He treated his inferiors with injustice, an act only those not yet brainwashed by his words and actions would see as malevolent. He gained a following, which soon grew to be an entire country, and began his malicious conquest.
Donald Trump is dangerous, though many people do not seem to realize the seriousness of it. He is the present-day Adolf Hitler. People might laugh it off as a joke, might say, “Oh, he’s not going to become president.” Open your eyes, America. History repeats itself far too often. He may be fun to watch, fun to listen to as he parades himself like an idiot, but it’s not funny anymore. His words have sparked violence amongst his supporters at rallies. He has said outrageously hateful things to people, words you would never want to be said to your child or significant other.
This is a man with no remorse for his words or actions. This is a man who simply does not care for the consequences he may face for them. This is a man who will willingly commit villainous acts and not give a fuck about what others might think. This man is dangerous. Allow me to repeat: Donald Trump is dangerous.
Please do not let this man become the president of our country.
