The only conclusion to form from this is that Trump, like the Conservative Parasites here in the UK, is a fan of The Big Lie – tell a falsehood loudly enough and often enough and people will believe you.
Hitler said he stole it from the UK. The Tories have stolen it back. It seems the Liberal Democrats contracted it (like a disease) during their Coalition with the Conservatives and now it seems Trump has developed it as well – possibly from the Nazis.
He seems to appreciate some of their other policies, after all.
This is a very interesting piece of analysis by Secular Talk’s Kyle Kulinski, of the replies given by a Trump supporter interviewed at the caucus by David Pakman. The man said he voted for Trump, because he wanted a national health care system in America, like that in Britain and Canada. Trump had said he supported this. Pakman pointed out that Bernie Sanders also said that he supported an NHS for America. The man also stated that he liked Trump because he was anti-establishment and showed leadership. He would make America great.
Kulinski shows how much the man’s views reflects the carefully constructed rhetoric of Trump, and his campaign strategy. Trump is winning the Republican electoral race, because he talks at a fourth grade level. While others have seen this as a handicap, showing how stupid Trump is, Kulinski states that it’s actually very clever. It boils everything down to punchy statement with a real emotional clout.
Trump is also winning because he’s extremely confident, much more so than his rivals. Few commentators on the electoral contests have recognised just how convincing and persuasive this is to voters. Trump tells people he’s winning, even when he isn’t, and so they believe him. When he says he’s got leadership, they swallow the line that he will be a great leader.
