Donald Trump says he will take NBC and other news outlets off the air if he wins in 2024

Even more specifically, I meant TFG probably thinks the actual wobbly lines in the sky exist. I have a strong suspicion his practical knowledge of the electromagnetic spectrum is somewhat lacking.

People, this is RIGHT OUT of Hitler’s playbook. Not unexpected from a man who supposedly keeps a copy of Mein Kampf on his bedside table. He MUST be stopped.

Maybe not long. Greasy fingers and firearms are a recipe for a “whoops.”

You think he’s actually going to carry that? That was for show. I promise as soon as they were off camera and out of sight, he handed that gun to an aide and said, “Get rid of this thing. Sell it or something.”

His campaign will protect him by getting a trigger lock. He’ll never figure out how to take that off. It’s the same way they protect him from OTC drugs: child safety gadgetry.

Maybe I’m mentally using this as a catch-all, but here’s #8 in the list in Umberto Eco’s Ur-Fascism:

by a continuous shifting of rhetorical focus, the enemies are at the same time too strong and too weak.


Here’s an example of how one non-Fox network held Trump’s feet to the fire back in 2016.

They’ve back tracked that he didn’t buy it, since he’s charged with felonies and all.

But really, when has he ever followed through and paid for something ever?

He can get away with saying he’s buying drinks/burgers/dinner for everyone and then walking out and the place will just charge the patrons directly. However, a firearm dealer isn’t going to take the PR statement and hand over the firearm. They’ll want the payment before they let the thing go. They’re not stupid.

Probably can’t be done in the US yet, but conservatives here in Korea played the long game, and could probably actually pull something similar off. In our case, choking off one broadcaster (TBS, probably only has 3 months of air left), changing the heads at two public broadcasters (KBS, MBC) and kick out the news crew, and privatizing two other public broadcasters (KBS2, EBS).

All with legal mechanisms put in place over the years.

As long as I get my huge annual bonus that I can use to buy citizenship in some tropical country when the crap hits the fan then it is all good. Don’t you people believe in (unfettered) capitalism?!

These people are hideous.

A “spectrum”? That’s like the woke, liberal, communist, trans, fascist, satanic rainbow, isn’t it?

Could be. For sure. Also, it may not matter to him. This is just like NATO is not paying their share, or like how the Brexiters would say the Europeople are making decisions for them and taking their money, etc. Or like how the birds are scrounging. Generating outrage is the key.
