Proof the Trump effect is in full effect: Friend of a former student tells historian to STFU (me)

Last edited Thu Oct 13, 2016, 11:03 AM - Edit history (1)

I was just told by a 15 year old trumper to, and I quote, "STFU" about the "putting Hillary in jail" comment because I told him to look up the world "gulag" and "concentration camp."

So, my response to being told to STFU:

Jailing opponents is what Mugabe does in Zimbabwe, Karimov did in Uzbekistan, Kim does in North Korea, Pinochet did in Chile, Norega did in Panama, Gaddafi did in Lybia, the Ayatollah does in Iran, Assad does in Syria, al-Bashar does in Sudan, Amin did in Uganda, Mswati does in Swaziland, Papa Doc and Baby Doc did in Haiti, Lee Syngman did in South Korea, Diem did in South Vietnan, Suharto and Sukarno did in Indonesia, Pol Pot did in Cambodia, Stalin did in Russia, Lushenko does in Belarus, Mao did in China, Chiang Kai-Shek did in China and Taiwan and Erdogan does currently in Turkey.

I would hope, (name redacted), you would learn your history and your world around instead of being an ignorant, snide, disgusting little disrespectful quisling.

4. Great response

but you'd need to add what the British and Americans did to anti-colonial and anti-imperialist leaders.
Noriega was an American puppet and so were Papa Doc and baby Doc. I needn't detail what the Brits did in their captured 'colonies' in Africa and indeed in the Caribbean. Churchill's then British Guiana coup is public knowledge as was Kennedy's involvement in that country.

The US attitude was "he may be an SOB, but he's our SOB."

You realize I could language like that in China and Malaysia in class and no one gets offended, but if I do in the US, I deal with overly sensitive parents are bible thumpers.

In all honest, I had more academic freedom in Communist China than I ever did in the US to teach my class as I saw fit. As long as the CIE scores were passing, the admin didn't care how I taught and they left me alone.

44. Aren't all authoritarians supported by intelligence agencies?

In a real democracy, transparency of reasons, transparency of actions are paramount.

In an authoritarian regime, you can do what you want, close the media channels, disappear or otherwise dispose of irritating voices. Transparency is like a black plastic bag - used to hide the abhorences.

In a quasi-democratic regime (the US and many of the western countries), you can more subtly dispose of irritants. You can use pressure (usually $s but sometimes xxx and more extreme tactics) to lean on possible factual outlets. In such a regime, transparency is only another phrase similar to: a chicken in every pot, all men are created equal, time for change, make amerika great again.

But white Europeans never really had problems with decimating native populations in more ways than one. Just look at what the Spanish, Dutch, French, English, and then the newly independent countries of the western hemisphere, including the Americans, did to the native populations of the western hemisphere.

40. In the area of Arizona where I taught before I went overseas, Circle K was the biggest employer.

 

And 65% of the population had a criminal record. I used to get odd looks when I told people I've never gotten even a parking ticket. "But it's so easy to get arrest by the po-lice." I would think "maybe for you. I don't do stupid things that would get the police called on me, unless reading a book in my bed at night or playing WOW on my computer is illegal now."

41. He deserved it, the little Hitler Youth clone.

I was in high school during most of the Clinton years, and remember how brainwashed, doctrinaire, and downright ugly some of the young Republicans were (I should note that at least two are now Democrats). Later, in college, a professor mentioned that the CIA had perfected the used of tv alpha and gamma waves to brainwash children - although, thankfully, it doesn't work with everyone.

Is it true? They're certainly not talking; but no one that has gone to high school in a Republican district can doubt this.

Kudos to you, Feeling the Bern.

26. Doesn't understand

You realize the kid doesn't know what "quisling" means, and won't look it up either. Truth is, he probably won't even get that far down before he stops reading.

That speaks to a point I have yet to find a way to express. I don't understand this current tendency for people to wear their ignorance like a badge of honor. It's the whole "you get to have your own opinion, but not your own facts" problem. If I hear "I'm not a scientist but..." one more time I'm gonna go postal. I strive to understand my opponents point, even when I disagree. But more and more I find my political opponents basically HAVE no point, just a position, and one they cannot begin to "defend" in any other manner than "because". And they have no intellectual "shame" in that at all. To a great degree they express it with pride.

Not being any of those, or the many other things I am not, does not render me incapable of recognizing the expertise of those in these fields, nor keep me from calling on those who do have expertise that I lack when in need of that expertise.

37. I'll bet that little jerk never heard of anyone on that list of dictators you fired back to him.

The trumper probably had not heard of most of those countries, either.

That student seems to be so typical of Trump supporters. They hear him spew his BS, later reinforced on Faux Snooze and the RW hate radio shows, and they think they're armed to the teeth with information and knowledge.

I've predicted that we would see the behavior that we're seeing at this stage of the campaign season. Lifelong Republicans would rather die than vote for Hillary, but they also know deep inside that Trump is totally unqualified and is the biggest jerk and crook to run for the office. But, they resort to listening to what they want to hear on the media to give them the rationale to vote for the Republican, and it's usually around Hillary being a crook. Classic case of deflection and projection. Trump knows his world is collapsing around him with his business practices being called out, with women coming out and accusing him of rape and sexual assault, and with his actual wealth being exposed as being a fraction of what he claims it is. So, he repeatedly calls Hillary a crook and his brainless minions latch on to it as their lifeline to continue to vote for the Republican candidate.

54. More history: Vidkun Quisling--

From wiki: The first use of the term quisling in reference to followers of Vidkun Quisling was made by Norwegian Labour Party politician Oscar Torp, in a 2 January 1933 newspaper interview. Further uses of the term were made by Aksel Sandemose, in a Dagbladet article in 1934, and by the newspaper Vestfold Arbeiderblad, in 1936.[4]

58. Trump loves the "poorly educated"

the uneducated and in this case the ill mannered child. His parents would probably be proud.

I once took care of a kid that age, he had broken his femur (that thigh bone) skiing. It was more than 30 years ago when he was stuck in skeletal traction in a hospital bed for weeks. He had a really foul mouth and threatened the staff. I took his wealthy father aside and had a little chat with him. He was so caught up in an ugly divorce I do not think he knew what a little monster he had. The behavior stopped. When it was time for him to go home, his parents were thinking about a trip "to save their marriage". They offered impressive money for any of the nurses or aides to stay with him....there were no takers.

60. Awesome! However, it'll probably take him 3 days to figure out what "quisling" means

61. Save that for your safe spaces and trigger warnings

intellectuals are weak!

A lot of Trumpers know it's wrong. They just don't care. They think a strong leader would do what he has to do to put certain people in their place.

It's not about Trump. It's about putting people in our place. Minorities, women, gays, liberals, intellectuals. A lot of uneducated folks have a deep seated hatred of people who know too much.

68. Well put.

 

Although I might have added "Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries" at the very end.

75. How many 15 year olds in America know who Quisling was?

For that matter, I'll bet less than 5% of Americans of any age know who Quisling was. I've been to Norway, have friends there and understand the language, so I got the reference right away, but somehow I doubt that makes me typical.
