I’m Getting Nervous About An American Reichstag Fire #TheResistance

by Shelton Bumgarner

I am growing ever more concerned about what, exactly, is Donald Trump’s endgame. Really, all we need is one major terrorist attack on American soil and we’re screwed. It would allow Trump to do a major power grab in unprecedented ways. It was a fire at the Reichstag that allowed Hitler to consolidate power in a big way in 1933.

Really, if Trump attacked Iran, he might be able to have something akin to the same thing. But, regardless, there isn’t much we can do at this point. We just have to be aware that it’s possible. There are no easy answers, no easy solutions and we’ll have to see what happens in the days, weeks and years ahead.
