Up until the emergence of Donald Trump, I had a hard time understanding how a civilized, educated and advanced nation like Germany in the 1920s and 1930s could have allowed someone like Adolf Hitler to come to power. I now understand all to well. I recognize demagogues immediately, given what I’ve observed in Honduras. Demagogues can destroy a country’s most sacred institutions and overwhelm a society, and they tend to linger… It’s hard for the people, once they’ve realized the mistake they’ve made, to get rid of demagogues. Just look at Honduras and their idiot Mel Zelaya. The guy just won’t go away. The Donald makes Mel look positively sweet and appealing.
Oh, those damn demagogues
