IN AMERICA: It usually starts small

Mr. Trump complaining that the news he doesn’t like must be slanted started out slowly.

A comment here and a comment there. Just a touch of complaining at the beginning of his campaign.

(Some may even have cheered this practice. I mean, really, who hasn’t wanted to tell someone off when they say something you don’t want to hear?)

And as the campaign went on he started to complain a bit more. And then a bit more.

And now that he’s the President he complains almost constantly. So much so that it’s now normal to have him make the most utterly outrageous statements concerning the media and we all just sit by and let him rant...

I wrote this column with a great deal of understanding of how a dictatorship starts. My mom grew up and lived through Hitler’s Nazi Germany, and as a child I heard stories that you didn’t read in our history books. I sat at the dinner table after we had eaten and Mom would talk about the Nazi party members intimidating anyone that didn’t agree with them ... how my grandfather was accosted over and over for not spouting the party doctrine that was broadcast over the airwaves. And how the news media was your enemy.

That is an excellent article.

How nations get dictators. First they get elected. Then they start complaining about the press. Members of the press either end up in jail or disappear. Soon the press is afraid to print anything except good news about him. Now the public either believes the press or are too afraid to say anything bad about him. When it is time for the next election the leader comes up with some reason to cancel the election. And bingo you have a dictator. Trump is well on his way. I get more afraid for the future of America every day.

Well if you would have read Sundays op-ed you would have learned that Thomas Jefferson said the same thing about the press in 1807. How do you explain the fact that the press and other media say the same thing about each other ? The best way to get a dictatorship is to disarm the public, and it's the Democrats who are trying to do that. grin

Prepared to "take aim" at those now in power, laying the groundwork for a fascist totalitarian state?

As I'm sure you're aware chuck, first rule of engagement - know your enemy.

It is not those in power who want a fascist state, it is the left.

Did ya miss the memo chuck? Hell's gatekeeper occupies the Oval Office. "Christian" fascists have his ear. You've got some serious catching up to do man.

With eyesight like that you'd best stick to playin' "...mean pinball." Chances are your own foot would be first to go defending the Republic.

He did nail the left right on the head. Of course Pete is the same guy that wrote an editorial complaining that the taxpayers of the school district were not paying for his health insurance even though he was living with a teacher.

Don't know, not sure if he has written about that. Do no the school district (taxpayers) was not required to cover him because NY does not recognize common law marriage.

Of course, now (under King Andy) the taxpayers are required to pay for coverage of live in same sex couples, married or not. Ironic isn't it.

one would think that a 'successful' business owner would not only pay for his own healthcare but also his employees healthcare

wonder if he reduced the number of his employees so he would not have to cover his employees under obamacare?

NYS pays the most for education and ranks at the bottom

remember it is all about the students 'teachers' and their over generous benefits

So Pete Mitchell complains about Trump and his opinion on the media while at the same time Mitchell is in the media giving his biased opinions on matters that go against what he believes. Mitchell is just another hypocritical liberal sore loser.

Pete being a typical liberal I doubt he pays for any health insurance for his employees.

We eat at Eddie O'Brien's anyways. Better food. Better service. No Pete Mitchell.
