My Endorsement for President of the United States

Posted June 5th, 2016 @ 10:11am in #Trump #clinton2016


I’ve decided to come off the sidelines and endorse a candidate for President of the United States. 

I’ll start by reminding readers that my politics don’t align with any of the candidates. My interest in the race has been limited to Trump’s extraordinary persuasion skills. But lately Hillary Clinton has moved into the persuasion game – and away from boring facts and policies – with great success. Let’s talk about that.

This past week we saw Clinton pair the idea of President Trump with nuclear disaster, racism, Hitler, the Holocaust, and whatever else makes you tremble in fear. 

That is good persuasion if you can pull it off because fear is a strong motivator. It is also a sharp pivot from Clinton’s prior approach of talking about her mastery of policy details, her experience, and her gender. Trump took her so-called “woman card” and turned it into a liability. So Clinton wisely pivoted. Her new scare tactics are solid-gold persuasion. I wouldn’t be surprised if you see Clinton’s numbers versus Trump improve in June, at least temporarily, until Trump finds a counter-move.

The only downside I can see to the new approach is that it is likely to trigger a race war in the United States. And I would be a top-ten assassination target in that scenario because once you define Trump as Hitler, you also give citizens moral permission to kill him. And obviously it would be okay to kill anyone who actively supports a genocidal dictator, including anyone who wrote about his persuasion skills in positive terms. (I’m called an “apologist” on Twitter, or sometimes just Joseph Goebbels). 

If Clinton successfully pairs Trump with Hitler in your mind – as she is doing – and loses anyway, about a quarter of the country will think it is morally justified to assassinate their own leader. I too would feel that way if an actual Hitler came to power in this country. I would join the resistance and try to take out the Hitler-like leader. You should do the same. No one wants an actual President Hitler.

So I’ve decided to endorse Hillary Clinton for President, for my personal safety. Trump supporters don’t have any bad feelings about patriotic Americans such as myself, so I’ll be safe from that crowd. But Clinton supporters have convinced me – and here I am being 100% serious – that my safety is at risk if I am seen as supportive of Trump. So I’m taking the safe way out and endorsing Hillary Clinton for president.

As I have often said, I have no psychic powers and I don’t know which candidate would be the best president. But I do know which outcome is most likely to get me killed by my fellow citizens. So for safety reason, I’m on team Clinton.

My prediction remains that Trump will win in a landslide based on his superior persuasion skills. But don’t blame me for anything President Trump does in office because I endorse Clinton.

The rest of you are on your own. Good luck.

 
I think Scott Adams got lost in the pretzel-logic world of his cartoons. 

1. Did Clinton explicitly "pair the idea of President Trump with...Hitler"? or the Holocaust? Not in her latest speech, as far as I can tell.

http://time.com/4355797/hillary-clinton-donald-trump-foreign-policy-speech-transcript/

1a. She did call Trump "temperamentally unfit" to be President and pointed numerous instances of his lack of understanding about current events and policies. Most adults who've been paying attention would agree with her. 

1b. Although I've just skimmed the speech, I can't see where she implied that a President Trump would be a dictator. 

2. Clinton's speech wasn't a great departure from her earlier speeches, as far as I can tell. She did contrast her knowledge of and experience in foreign and domestic policy with Trump's deficiencies in those areas, and did so to great effect. She did touch on Trump being thin-skinned and rash. 

3. If Clinton's numbers do go up in June, it may be in part because she gave a great speech that exposed Trump as a rambling, know-nothing, hate-filled ranter. Any rise in popularity may also be due to an apparent shortage in Trump's campaign funds for the next month or so. 

Scott next loses his tenuous grasp on reality. 

4. "The only downside I can see to the new approach is that it is likely to trigger a race war in the United States."

Wait, what? 

How did Scott jump from Hillary supposedly fear-mongering about Trump all the way to an imminent race war?!?!? Does Scott seriously think that people are going to start killing each other if someone says that Trump is temperamentally unfit to be POTUS? Are non-whites supposed to start fighting with whites over Trump's thinning scalp?

5. "And I would be a top-ten assassination target in that scenario because once you define Trump as Hitler, you also give citizens moral permission to kill him. And obviously it would be okay to kill anyone who actively supports a genocidal dictator, including anyone who wrote about his persuasion skills in positive terms..."

{#Roflol}{#Roflol}{#Roflol}{#Roflol}{#Roflol}{#Roflol}{#Roflol}{#Roflol}{#Roflol}{#Roflol}

Yes, that's absolutely right. I think America is going to be taken over by a right-wing dictator, so I'm going to jump into a race war. And a cartoonist whose cultural influence definitely peaked a while ago is on my Top Ten List of Assassination Targets just because he admires Trump's "persuasion skills."

5a. Who knew that Democrats were such vicious Red Guard types ready to kill at the bidding of Madame Hillary. Lynch the capitalist-lackey cartoonist! 

6. "Trump supporters don’t have any bad feelings about patriotic Americans such as myself, so I’ll be safe from that crowd."

They're never violent. All that hitting and punching and dragging of protesters during a Trump rally? All staged. They're practicing for the WWE. 

7. "As I have often said, I have no psychic powers and I don’t know which candidate would be the best president."
 
Scott, if you think you need psychic powers to figure that out, you're sorely lacking in other mental capacities.

I will do my level best to get you into the nicest re-indoctrination/labor camps when Chairman Hill assumes power.

No, he'd have to tear the disgusting dump down, because it is a disgrace as left behind by the last tenants, but he'll have it beautifully rebuilt (with lotsa, lotsa gilded kitsch) in no time. It'll be yuge and beautiful, 'cause he knows beautiful. In fact, no one knows beautiful like he does. Oh, and youse are gonna pay for it.

All this coarseness is largely masking the truth that the Trump campaign is entirely about coarseness. Take away the unmappable comb-over and the unstoppable mouth and the Freudian-rich debates about genitalia, and there is no Trump campaign. Donald Trump’s few forays into actual issues suggest he is startlingly unaware of how the presidency or even ordinary governance works.

 

 
I think if Trump were truly courageous he would legally rename himself "Genitalia Supreme".

Yes, see my reply to Lazy8 3 pages back.  Haven't changed my ideals on that, yet it no longer applies in today's world.  Now that ideal is seen as obstructionist and as angry old white man.

Who is advocating that today ?  Absolutely no one except the neocon poseurs of the #no trump group who only give it lip service because it suits their immediate needs, but in doing so is hypocritical.  They sold out long ago.

Got to play with the hand that is dealt.  I still haven't decided if I'm going to do any campaign work this year like I did for Romney, which regardless of the outcome, was a great learning experience.
