Robert, it will be much more effective, strategically, to ‘tag’ Trump as “America’s Emperor”
Regarding Emperor Trump’s latest attack messaging against any TruthDigging or CommonDreams, I commented this to both those progressive web-sites, and to the NY “Times” on Julie Hirschfeld Davis and Maggie Haberman’s reporting today of:
“With ‘Spygate,’ Trump Shows How He Uses Conspiracy Theories to Erode Trust”:
Thank you, Julie and Maggie, for ‘teeing this up’ (which I thought was open to comments briefly last night) — because this is going to be an ‘easy one to resolve’ — although I’m not going to call it a “slam dunk” nor shoot my pheasant hunting partner in the face.
If faux-Emperor Trump is able to employ the vacuous, meaningless, divisive, and deceitful messaging terms, “Spygate” and “Deep State” effectively against ‘we the American people’ then he will win, and anything, including a sequel of Hitler’s Nazi Empire “Night of the Long Knives”, militarist action in the Middle East, or broader “aggressive wars” (as the Nuremberg tribunal defined the ultimate ‘war crime’), could well occur.
If, on the other hand, this provable; “Empire-builder” and “Empire-thinking” faux-Emperor Trump is recognized, diagnosed, understood, and bravely confronted as such by a brave and free citizenry of Americans with an accurate and effective “Competitive Strategy”, and the related ‘strategic narrative’ that in America we must “DUMP EMPEROR TRUMP” because “We can’t be an EMPIRE” — then our greatest crisis since the “Revolution Against Empire” in 1776 [Justin du Rivage] and our Civil War against an ‘economy of slavery’, will, likewise, have been resolved peacefully — and ‘we on both sides’ of the political divide, will win (by avoiding being ‘divided’ by an Emperor or Empire).
