This Song is for You, Hans

Hans hears “America First” and thinks “Deutschland über alles.“  And so do we all.

After today’s abomination of an inauguration speech, Aardvark takes cold comfort in this thought: a cleverer fascist would probably do a much better job of concealing his hand.

In addition, there’s the widespread revulsion that followed the speech.

That said, it CAN HAPPEN HERE. I don’t think it will, in the end, but it can.

We need our friends in Europe to keep on reminding us of the lessons of history.

And so, Hans, this song is for you.

P.S. To add to the footnote in my last post, here’s an additional shoutout to Aardvark’s readers in Israel, Ireland, and Canada.
