The more I think about it, the more it makes sense that the natural inclination for MAGA to go full Nazi that is abated by Ivanka Trump being Jewish may be circumvented by Qanon.
Both Nazism and Qanon are based on a Blood Libel. (I’m not going to go into what those libels entail. You can look it up yourself.) In a sense, Nazism is a subset of Qanon because the many — but not all — of the targets of Qanon are Jewish. So, it would make a lot of sense that as the Qanon blackhole consumes the Republican Party, that many would-be American Nazis will simply hide behind Qanon to achieve their goals.
The reason this is extremely troubling is House Trump is going to throw everything it has at the 2020 election and get away with it. The press is going to lulz the brazen theft of the 2020 election and will be completely unprepared for when House Trump comes after THEM.
Once the media is purged at some point in Trump’s stolen second term, things will begin to move at a rapid clip. The press, for all its faults, has in its own tepid way, been one of the few institutions that has been a little bit of a check on the worst inclinations of House Trump.
With the press out of the way, there will be absolutely nothing to stop House Trump from using the existing ICE infrastructure to make their Qanon nightmares come true. A huge swath of people will be “implicated” as suspects in the batshit insane Qanon worldview and soon enough ICE camps will become Trumplandia death camps.
I know — I know — that right now that sounds hysterical. But given how Qanon gives the most extreme (and dumb) elements of MAGA an outlet for their rage against liberals (many of who are Jewish) it make sense that this is our future.
And, remember, once we have our own Qanon Night of the Long Knives and Qanon themed Kristallnacht, history will definitely appear to repeat itself. American civil society will implode and the darkness that has already fallen across the land will get pitch black.
If I was writing for VOX, I would give you some hope that this won’t happen. Or give you some practical guide to how you can survive this coming hellscape. But, sadly, I’m not smart enough.
I honestly don’t know.
Who is going to save us? The EU? Canada?
It seems to me that the only thing that might save us is the dead hand of demographics. There’s going to come a point when the base of Qanon-MAGA will drop dead en masse and that’s the point when House Trump’s grip on the country will finally grow weak enough that a Second Republic might, just might arise from the ashes of Trumplandia.
But right now, that seems rather delusional.
This is it. This is the end.
