To an overall interesting post by  [livejournal.com profile] carlyinrome that [livejournal.com profile] gillo   reposted, she added the link to an impressing and scary analysis, which could easily be dismissed as conspiracy theory, and some commenters did.

I don't, and here is why:

The comparison of Trump and Hitler is as well-known as it is obvious. But despite knowing all the facts mentioned in the article and being acutely aware of the parallels especially in recent days, it is really chilling to the bone reading it juxtaposed to the analysis Gillo linked to.


I'm so proud of all of those of you who fight, whether it be by marching, donating, sharing informations, engaging politically, contacting representatives, or organizing resistance.

To us outside the US there's not much we can do about it (yet). I have subscribed to the NYT and the WP, donated to Planned Parenthood and ACLU and will donate to the fund 'She Decides' that Lilianne Ploumen, the dutch minister for foreign trade and development co-operation launched (double-dutchess.livejournal.com/15399.html )

My two younger children (10 and 12) 'caught' me donating to ACLU on Monday and were a bit surprised that I donated when they so often hear that I can't afford to go watch a movie at the cinema every two weeks with them. When I told them what ACLU and Planned Parenthood are doing with the money, they insisted that they wanted to help, too, and gave me 10 € each for me to donate for them. Actually this is a theme you can see everywhere - even children are engaging, marching, scribbling signs, and I'm sure mine aren't the only ones donating from their allowance.

There might still be hope after all.
