What Beast To This Election Comes?

"Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, 

     and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity."

                               ( William Butler Yeats)

Historical Metaphors From An Unlearned Past:

1)  With the exception of Trump, all of the
     Republican candidates are reminiscent of
     Hitler & the General Staff after the defeat
          at Stalingrad ...
     "We are so fucked" ... wash, rinse ... repeat.
2)  Trump is Hitler after the fall of France,
      before The Battle of Britain ....
     "I'm winning ... I'm winning .... I will win!"
3)  Hillary is as Hitler was just prior to
      becoming Chancellor on 30 January 1933.

"Repeating our mistakes throughout history
doesn't mean that history repeats itself."
