5. Every successful tyrant or dictator who ever lived learned how to

do this trick. You make up an enemy that doesn't exist and get everyone who is not "the enemy" to hate the enemy. And then you move the enemy around. First they are outside the country, and then eventually, when the dictator needs to marginalize the opposition, the enemy is suddenly inside the country.

It's the fascist playbook.

By the way, they actually do love Trump, or how he makes them feel. They love Trump because of how powerful and acknowledged Trump makes them feel. I'd recommend picking up a good book about the Third Reich, or The Cult of Trump by Steven Hassan. Until the Red Army was burning down their homes, Nazi supporters loved Hitler; they thought he was put there by God. In fact, some of them never stopped loving Hitler, even when Germany was rubble.
