Dilbert creator and Trump supporter Scott Adams may have made the weirdest case yet in defense of The Donald. The one thing Marx got right is that history repeats itself, first as tragedy, then as farce. If the fascist dictators who rose to power in Europe in the 1930s are the tragedy, Trump would be the corresponding farce. But Adams assures us that despite the obvious similarities in terms of state-micromanaged economics, authoritarianism, suppression of dissent, cult of personality, contempt for rule of law, scapegoating minorities, et cetera, Trump is nothing like Hitler. Here is how he guarantees it:
If Trump gets elected, and he does anything that looks even slightly Hitler-ish in office, I will join the resistance movement and help kill him. That’s an easy promise to make, and I hope my fellow citizens would use their Second Amendment rights to rise up and help me kill any Hitler-type person who rose to the top job in this country, no matter who it is.
Soopermexican isn’t impressed by the threat:
I’m thinking a dude who use words like “Hitler-ish” probably [doesn’t] have what it takes to take on the federal government and take out a despotic president. Hey you remember when Trump said he’d make the military commit crimes against humanity, and if they refused, he’d FORCE them to? Yeah, just a reminder.
If that wasn’t “Hitler-ish,” what would be?
Just to be on the safe side, instead of suing the women who complain about him molesting them, Trump’s first act on taking power ought to be locking up Scott Adams, on the one in a billion chance that the cartoonist isn’t just making a cartoon of himself.
