It's Impossible to Exaggerate the Evil Qualities of Your Enemies

"No, no, no! It's impossible to exaggerate the formidable qualities of the Jew as an enemy." - Adolf Hitler

It didn't surprise me at all that Trump's enemies refer to him as a fascist and Nazi and racist and sexist - and an evil monster who is going to start a nuclear war! If you have enemies you have to create an exaggerated evil profile of them (look how those evil powerful Russians interfered with our elections and threw the election to Trump!). Just exaggerate how evil and monstrous they are even if they're not evil and monstrous at all and watch how many people fall for it.

No one makes enemies of the Amish or the Salvation Army.

You can't make an enemy of someone who is weak or harmless. You have to turn them into an evil, powerful monster hellbent on destroying you! It's the archetype of the horror story - good attacked by evil!

I've met a couple of black men who think the Klan still exists and one blamed his failures in life on them. I also knew a religious fanatic, rabidly anti-Catholic, who thought the Pope had sent assassins to kill him because he was writing a book exposing the evil of the Church. He, not surprisingly, was a loser. A demented one.

Look at the way some deluded people refer to Black-Run America (what are they going to do when Obama leaves office?) or how some refer to ZOG (Zionist-Occupied Government) or even believe Jews rule the world.

I suppose some people have to find someone to blame their problems on. It is, after all, the first defense of children - projection, scapegoating, call it what you will. "All these problems are your fault!"

I read an article recently how one woman didn't want to raise boys in "Trump's America." I thought, good thing because you'd make a lousy mother anyway. Honestly, "Trump's America"? What astonishing power Trump has to change the entire county so fast! And he's not even President yet! And of course this crazy woman was blaming everything on him. "It's not my fault! I'm innocent! It's someone else's fault!"

Remember the way that the dimbulb Duyba Shrub claimed Saddam Hussein had Weapons of Mass Destruction and was going to nuke the U.S.? The fact that none of it was true is irrelevant. Gotta exaggerate the evil qualities of some third-rate tinhorn dictator (whose country had a GNP of one billion)! Claim he's going to denonate an atomic bomb in the U.S. and you can start a war to rub out your enemies before they rub you out!

Paranoia must be inborn in a lot of people. Just claim some monsters are after them and just them throw hissy fits.

Good thing I have a conscience because if I didn't I could probably cause all kinds of trouble.

Eph 6:12

When people go off into 'da Joos' or 'da people with different colored skin' or 'da people with different genetlia'...they probably have no concept of Satan and the fallen angels.

This was well said. We always have to make our enemies big and bad and powerful or else we just sound pathetic and weak ourselves.

We also have to dehumanize them. That's where things get really scary, because once we designate someone as sub-human, we grant ourselves moral permission to do anything we want to them.

A few points of order and correction.

Saddam Hussein definitely DID have WMD's. We know this because our allies sold them to him, and he used them on the Kurds. Fact is that Dubya was a rare visionary that had the smarts to see that murderous moslem goon for what he was. Had Chamberlain had the courage Dubya did, WW2 might well have been averted because Hitler would have been offed the same way Saddam was.

If you recall, Bob - at the start of Gulf War 2, endless convoys of trucks drove past stunned UN inspectors that were tasked with examining military sites suspected of containing WMD's. Do you know what was on those trucks? If so - please share.

America set Saddam up - it is only right that they took him out. Unfortunately there's a mountain of moslem trash building in Iran now too. This time, you Americans would be well advised to take your military direction from Glen Filthie!

Under the Filthie Doctrine, Iran would be bombed FORWARD into the Stone Age! Afterward - any surviving assets would be handed off to cronies and allies - but the USA would walk away and not waste blood and treasure in 'nation building'. That was the only mistake Dubya actually made - assuming the mud flaps could govern themselves and run a civilized country. Fact is, I don't care how many moslems gotta die to fuel up my Hummer - HAR HAR HAR! There are far too many of them as it is and any excuse to cull them is a good one.

No, he didn't and Dubya has already gone down in history as a catastrophe.

Glen Filthie said...

Nerve gas doesn't count, Bob? So what was going on at those sites the United wasn't allowed to inspect? What was on those endless convoys that didn't even slow down for the peace keepers?

Compared to Obama or Hillary, yes, even Dubya is a saint!

Glen Filthie:" Nerve gas doesn't count, Bob?"

We knew both Iraq and Iran had mustard gas, they used them against each other in the Iran-Iraq war. But that wasn't what the civilian populations of the West were terrorised with ( by our own politicians) . Saddam had 'weapons of mass destruction' that could hit a European country. That was a lie. Not least because there would be a number of western armed forces in between a launch site in Iraq and it's destination.

APL said...

" Saddam was a Moslem. "

There is little evidence he was apracticing Moslem, other than at the end when he tried to rally Moslem anti Western sentiment to his cause, by being seen in the Mosque. His administration was quite secular, I think 'Bagdad Ali' was either an Yazidi, or some Christian sect.

Much the same could be said of Gaddafi's regieme in Libiya. With the hat trick of Syria, why would the US pimp it's arms and armed forces out to destroy the three secular reigmes in the middle east? Who benefits?

Turns out Baghdad Ali was not Yazidi nor Christian, but Shia Moslem. Still believe Iraq under Hussain's Baath party was essentially secular.

He wasn't that stupid. Or haven't you seen picture of Donald Rumsfeld shaking hands with Saddam Hussein? He was our ally until Shrub fucked up everything.

I didn't Canada leading the charge over there.

BW: "He was our ally until Shrub fucked up everything."

He was certainly our ally while he was attacking Iran. Not so much when he knocked over Kuwait.

I read reports that Rumsfeild might have given Hussain a nod and a wink that K8 was an Ok target. But haven't bothered looking into that, tbh.

That sort of thing came from the left, people like George Galloway, who at the time I was not prepared to accord any credibility.

Galloway can sound quite sane, on a good day, these days.
