So this is a thing that is happening, but maybe it shouldn’t be so surprising. After all, Jon Stewart warned us back in 2014.
Stewart makes a great point, among many. It’s funny how Republicans just love Putin’s dictatorial style, while they accuse Obama of wearing “mommy jeans.” But then whenever Obama actually does something, like pass health care reform, the President suddenly becomes “Dictator Obama” who jams unconstitutional legislation down the throats of the American public (by letting the Congress vote on it 50 times).
Where have I heard that before?
“Thus, by a continuous shifting of rhetorical focus, the enemies are at the same time too strong and too weak.”
Umberto Eco, from Eternal Fascism: Fourteen Ways of Looking at a Blackshirt
A story told a thousand times. Just like Schrodinger’s Immigrant — simultaneously a lazy welfare leech, and a job hoarder at the same time. How the Jews are, at once, a degenerate, filthy, inferior race, and the menacingly powerful puppetmasters controlling the world through the banking, media, and delicatessen industries. Obama the pansy-ass pussy bitch atheist, and also a dictatorial, menacing, all-powerful muslim! And Hillary the brain damaged feeble grandmother who can’t get into a van without help who is also controlling elements of the deep state within DOJ, SCOTUS, FBI, NSA and the DOD to overthrow Trump.
