Ranting and Raving

LOVINGSTON, VIRGINIA – The public spectacle continues…   There are so many ways to look at it, we scarcely know whether to laugh or gasp. A week ago, President Trump took the sound and fury up a notch by way of his Twitter account:

The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!

Here at the Diary, we offer no news. And no opinions. We just try to make sense of it all. We do so by comparing what’s going on today to other events, other people, and other times.

Analogy is all we have to go on. And so far, the best match we have found for Mr. Trump is former Argentine President Juan Perón. A colorful, larger-than-life rascal, Perón “took on the Establishment” south of the Río de la Plata.

Perón didn’t have Twitter. He didn’t have “fake news.” All he had were old-fashioned speeches and old-fashioned lies. He railed against the rich, the landowners and the church.

And he ranted against the newspapers, the bankers  and the universities. The plain people loved it. Perón spoke for them. He stood up to the old elite. But he didn’t drain the swamp. He didn’t even drain the sink.

Instead, he took over the Establishment’s power and used it for himself. Whatever dirty deeds Perón ascribed to the old elite, his new elite committed even dirtier ones.
