The Great Dictator

Charlie Chaplin in The Great Dictator (1940)

The Protocols of the Elders of Zion was the companion text to Mein Kampf. However imagine the future. The Proud Boys and Oath Keepers, now pardoned, become the the black shirts, the SS. But who is their scapegoat? The Jews again? Certainly liberal Jewish philanthropists e.g. George Soros. Every anti-Christ requires its Christ. Every cult needs a leader, every leader an enemy. Will it be Jews or reporters? Trump has threatened retribution against the press, but will there be camps filled with emaciated journalists in black and white striped prison issue. Truth is the basic issue. Trump claims democracy is at issue. Biden and the democrats echo the same idea. Each claims they're being set up. Trump will make sure the truth wins out by putting all those who tell the truth in jail. This along with the cheering crowds of followers and  hortatory language is what is known as fascism.
