There is a dark, foreboding feeling sinking in across the country as the coronation of Mein Trumpf nears in seven weeks. The Swamp has been drained and refilled with authentic neo-fascists and the very bankers that the Trum-pets reviled pre-election. Even they will feel betrayed soon.
One of my favorite reads lately has been Sarah Kendzior, who has been giving interviews and lectures on the nature of contemporary fascism, and the “Great Orange Beast” himself. You can find her website and follow her on Twitter Here:
Kendzior points out a few quotes from Trump and Steve Bannon that should shake all Americans to the core:
A president-elect who wants to strip our country down for parts
“Listen to what Trump said already back in 2014. Here is what he said about his desired outcome for the United States:
“You know what solves it? When the economy crashes, when the country goes to total hell and everything is a disaster. Then you’ll have a [chuckles], you know, you’ll have riots to go back to where we used to be when we were great.”
“Trump’s vision for the United States is echoed in that of his chief strategist, Steve Bannon, a man who even the very right-wing Glenn Beck describes as a dangerous, sociopathic racist. In 2016, a reporter from the Daily Beast recalled this conversation with Bannon:
“I’m a Leninist,” Bannon proudly proclaimed.
Shocked, I asked him what he meant.
“Lenin,” he answered, “wanted to destroy the state, and that’s my goal too. I want to bring everything crashing down, and destroy all of today’s establishment.”
Back to Covert Book Report:
With that said, I feel it important to mention a conversation I had with a man last week. He said his son had been a Secret Service agent who had recently left the service, took a pay cut and became a fireman.
“He saw the writing on the wall and got out before the election”.
Me: Well what does he think about Trump?
“He believes that the various militia groups may be used by Trump as street enforcers”
Me: Like the storm troopers in Germany? The S.A.?
“Absolutely, and I’m worried about it too”.
Now let’s be clear about this; we are not talking about foggy conspiracy theory, we are talking about a man who just left the Secret Service. This guy had his ear to the wall so-to-speak.
I doubt this is the concern of a single individual that was close to the circles of power.
This smacks of serious insider talk, a possible harbinger of something to come.
