Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
tbh we always knew he was agonna be a dictator. He was telling us that in the run-up to the election.

Medium - Sarah Benincasa - Welcome to the Dictator Playbook

When they tell you to rally behind President Trump because we've been hit by evil, remember how gleefully he painted the target.

If you are too young to remember how Bush and Cheney used an act of terror by Saudis and others to create a lie about Iraq, read about it. Trump didn't ban Saudis from coming here. There's a reason for that, and it's not because they didn't constitute the majority of 9/11 hijackers (spoiler: they did).

Friday's actions do not represent a sensible method to buy time to evaluate already-stringent visa procedures. They are grooming you the way a molester grooms a child. The molester tests boundaries first.

This is a test of your boundaries, my fellow American. How far can he push you before you speak up? Will you speak up? Will you fight back? You're not a child. You have some power. Band together with others and you have more.

Trump and Pence are following a well-worn playbook. What does it say?

Blame the immigrants; label dissenters and witnesses as threats; divide.

(And conquer. That's the best part, for guys like this.)
