President Donald Trump might be a lot of things, but the one thing he is not is a tyrant. The Left have been telling us since Trump was elected that we are in the early days of a new Weimar Republic and it is only a matter of time before Trump goes the whole hog and seizes total power.
In this Guardian piece, he is compared to the Roman emperors Commodus, Nero and Tiberius. I do hope its author Jonathan Jones doesn’t meet Nero in the afterlife. I am pretty sure Nero would feel insulted to be likened to Trump, who on current form is a teddy bear in contrast to the bloodthirsty Nero, who liked to put heads on spikes.
Truly, Trump makes a crappy tyrant. Let’s just look at some of the policies he has tried to institute so far. First was the travel ban and an increase in vetting for travellers from high-risk countries, known as the Muslim ban by its demented opponents. As you would expect, this has been challenged in the courts and, to keep it simple, an altered travel ban still stands, while awaiting ultimate adjudication in the Supreme Court.
Second is DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), an unconstitutional executive order signed by Obama preventing action being taken against people who were brought to the United States illegally by their parents. Trump refused to renew this order, it was also challenged in the courts and a stay has been issued. ‘On Monday, the Supreme Court announced that it would not intervene to stay the lower court ruling temporarily blocking the implementation of President Trump’s termination of the Obama administration executive amnesty. Renewals of approximately 700,000 deportation waivers for illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children would have ended on March 5. Now, under the continued Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, those waivers will remain available. The Supreme Court did request that the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals “act expeditiously to decide this case”.’
Being a Tyrant Like No Other, he’s fired all the judges. I can’t find a link to that one, because it hasn’t happened. In fact I’m getting confused – it was Democrat President Franklin D Roosevelt (FDR) who threatened to pack the Supreme Court when he didn’t get his way. My bad!
Trump also had the run-in with people who are transgender, and said they could no longer serve in the military. He did this in that watertight constitutional fashion known as ‘tweeting’. Ultimately, he lost in the courts on this matter also. Trump – being a tyrant – ignored the ruling. No, that’s not true either. ‘The Department of Justice later took back any legal challenges it had issued against the courts’ rulings, which allowed the Pentagon to begin recruiting transgender military members.’ My bad again!
Still, Trump hates all the black people, and the gays, and the Muslims, depending on what day of the week it is and what crazy Left-wing outfit you are reading. So Trump has locked them all up, or something. Gosh, no, that’s not right; that was FDR again, who liked to lock up American citizens without trial.
In fact, this year marks the 76th anniversary of FDR’s authorisation of Executive Order 9066 in 1942. The order, which set in motion a mass internment of Japanese Americans, was signed and justified in the name of national security. It wreaked havoc in the Japanese American community, leading to the incarceration of more than 120,000 citizens.
But there is one final thing. No president can become a despot if the citizenship is armed. That is why Trump has been making moves against the Second Amendment. No, hang on – that’s the Left again.
Honestly, that Donald Trump – Worst Tyrant Ever.
