Sick of Hitler comparisons. Check.

Sick of Louis CK. Check.

Sick of Donald Trump. Check.

Sick of John McCain. CHECK.

But aside from all that--I'm not going to listen to anything a comedian tries to tell me about anything. What is going on with people thinking that comedians' opinions on politics should be taken seriously?

I mean, I know people have allowed themselves to be influenced by celebrity for a long time now, but it seems to be getting exponentially worse by the season.


Ronald Reagan.

Grease your answer up and GO!

Aren't you the one to be worried about? The faceless yes man that spouts out endless BSC because you don't understand your own world?

You folks act like you have a clue ...but you dont, you just subscribe to what is easy for you and yours.

Ok great you can say words

Unfortunately this made absolutely no sense and has nothing to do w the OP

Again nice word salad. I see Trumps manner of articulating is rubbing off on his followers

I did read the article. Thoroughly.

I wouldn't vote for Trump, but I am impressed by the foaming at the mouth hatred he gets from both sides these days. This hatred wasn't there before he became the Republican front runner. It will disappear after he is gone. These people didn't mind Trump when they were taking his campaign contributions. They didn't mind him when they were taking a paycheck from his entertainment venues. But when he is apparently closing in on the Republican nomination we are treated to daily reminders that he is a misogynist racist who now ranks right up there with Hitler.

Where was all this pertinent information before he became the Republican front runner? Apparently, Trump is worse than McCain or Romney, but he wasn't on anyone's radar in 2008 or 2012. Can we get a little heads up on the next misogynist, racist, Hitler wannabe before the 2020 elections?

The Church of Trump has become the new fad du jour for 2016.

And his followers have become such rabid angry little things...


It's quite sad to watch from the outside looking in.

I'm so sorry you're ignorant enough to drink the kook aid...well done


What"kookaid" is that?

You're just flinging insults and then are touchy when it's reciprocated (just like trump) and have yet to address or form a comprehensive rebuttal to anything

Then I suppose your issue is taking Louis C.K. at face value, here? Because he doesn't like someone who is going to write a screed every time any Republican becomes a front-runner. But that's the basis on which you dismissed everything he had to say, no?

I think Louis C.K. hit it on the head: for myriad reasons, no one took his candidacy seriously. In hindsight, that was quite a mistake. I think it was questionable to raise the Hitler comparison, but I do understand it, and many serious academics do as well. I suspect you're not a fan of Chomsky's political leanings, but this is pretty insightful:

CNN and MSNBC are in constant Trump and GOP mode......national and international news are both absent most of the day.....and of course there's FOX, but that's been dumbed down for years

My issue with Louis C.K.'s piece is twofold.

First, he is simply parroting what you can hear on CNN or MSNBC every half hour, or every 10th post on ATS. Trump is bad, people who vote for him are stupid and racist, etc., etc. Nothing new or insightful about that.

Second, I don't think Louis C.K. would have had any problem getting a check performing at one of Trump's casinos or his TV show before this election.

As for Mr. Chomsky's analysis (which I did read before you ask), no, I don't agree. It's really just more of the same: Trump voters are stupid, angry, low class, low intelligence, etc.

I confess, I am a conspiracy theorist. I believe Hillary Clinton has already been selected by the CFR and the Bilderbergers as the next President. The only hitch is that they still need to convince enough people to vote for her so that voter fraud won't be too obvious. They still need Americans to have the illusion of choice. For some reason, too many people are voting for Trump. The MSM keeps calling him a racist and saying that anyone who votes for him are racist, but he still keeps getting votes. The story of The Boy Who Cried Wolf comes to mind; people just aren't buying it like they used to.

Now, even the Republicans are trying to slow Trump's progress. Their problem is, if a Republican were to be elected, they would have to explain why their policies so closely match the Democrats. They can say they want to repeal Obamacare, or deport illegals, or build a wall, or whatever. But if they were in a position to actually do it and didn't, people might start to take note.

Hillary is the perfect choice for the CFR. She can carry out "liberal" agendas like gun control and larger government, while pursuing "conservative" goals like more war in the Middle East. She can play the gender card more masterfully than Obama played the race card. The problem is getting people to vote for Hillary. It's much easier to get them to vote against someone else out of fear.

Hence, Fear a Trump Presidency is the mantra from both sides of the aisle until November.

He talks about this balance but the balance has been out of whack for at least 20 years if not more. Here is the thing though, all of these people are attacking Trump not his policies. What does that tell you? Louis C.K. wants the status quo people are tired of that and want change which is what Donald Trump will do.

No matter what you think of the guy, if he gets inm things will change for the better. If you listen to all the candidates they all say I am going to do this or I am going to do that, Trump says we are going to do this and we are going to do that.

I'm a huge fan of Louis. But I have to say, all the JEWISH famous Hollywood types are barking about Trump

The KKK label really puts them in a panic. In fact most of the talking heads I see going after Trump with the most zeal, are either Israeli influenced or Jewish.

Not claiming conspiracy, just seeing a trend.

I particularly enjoy the condemnation of disrespecting others, such as John MCain, and then he continues to go on a similiar diatribe on Trump:



Trump is a messed up guy with a hole in his heart that he tries to fill with money and attention. He can never ever have enough of either and he’ll never stop trying. He’s sick. Which makes him really really interesting. And he pulls you towards him which somehow feels good or fascinatingly bad. He’s not a monster. He’s a sad man. But all this makes him horribly dangerous if he becomes president. Give him another TV show. Let him pay to put his name on buildings. But please stop voting for him. And please watch Horace and Pete.


The moral ineptitude shown by people such as Lois CK, who lambast others for lambasting others, is enough to understand the piece isn't written for any principled reason, but for political ones. Not to mention, the obligatory Hitler comparison. More fodder.
