Trump is so evil we should give a bunch of astrologers the authority to remove him.

Did I say astrologers? I meant psychiatrists. :mrgreen:

Psychiatrist, Heal Thyself
By Theodore Dalrymple (himself a psychiatrist) in City Journal
...

Gartner argues that it is not only permissible for psychiatrists to diagnose President Trump, but also obligatory for them to do so, and that furthermore they should agitate for his removal from office on psychiatric or psychological grounds. “We live in a pre-fascist society,” explains the psychologist. “If you consider silence in the face of rising fascism to be unethical, then the only way to adhere to the A[merican] P[sychatric] A[ssociation] ethics [which states that psychiatrists should not diagnose public figures whom they have not personal examined] is to behave unethically . . . The German Psychiatric Association said nothing during the rise of Hitler. Should they be our moral role models? As a Jew, I was raised on the mantra ‘Never again,’ which means that it is a terrible sin to be silent in the face of rising fascism . . . In an effort to avoid ‘embarrassing the profession’ the APA has stained it with eternal shame.”

It's a pre-fascist society. Let me explain.

We didn't have brown shirts beating up hipsters to prevent them from entering polling locations yesterday, but every democrat wished for it.

Every democrat wanted hipsters to be forcibly prevented from voting?

Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

What is a pre-fascist society? I note that he doesn't say proto-fascist ... "pre" seems a bit weasel. I.e. neolithic Europe was a pre-democratic society. .. but hardly a proto one.

Also, see that we are now going to go the USSR route, where opposing the "correct" ideology gets you called mentally ill. As if having blackshirt Antifa in the streets isn't bad enough, we have commie shrinks in the psych wards. Any other totalitarian nightmare states that the anti-trumpers can get inspiration from (while claiming to be the good guys)?
