Sign of the ‘Times’

Okay, sport fans, according to Joe Biden the Donald is the reincarnation of Adolf Hitler, so if you value your freedoms, do not vote for Trump or you’ll be seeing storm troopers marching down Fifth Avenue. Biden gets his ideas from The New York Times, the paper that prints only news that fits its extreme lefty agenda, and opinions whose virtue signaling is valued above truth or fact. I rarely read the Times, but when I do I find it amusing because it’s such an obvious con as a newspaper: ultra-woke, pro-migrant, anti-Catholic, pro-minority, anti-cop, pro-criminal, antiwhite. Turning Trump into Hitler was a natural, except that the Führer managed to win two Iron Crosses in World War I before ruining the greatest country of Europe in World War II.

The Sulzbergers are longtime owners of the rag, and are of German-Jewish extraction, and most of the people they employ are of the Jewish faith, hence linking Trump to Hitler is a natural. Mind you, much of the propaganda and lies the Times spews out daily could match much of the Führer’s during his heyday. The last big one was a 5,000-word diatribe by a criminally verbose and obtuse Jewish lesbian, Anna Marks, naming the extreme heterosexual Taylor Swift as a fellow sapphic. It’s a wonder the Times has not yet declared Trump to be gay, but that’s only because the gay community would revolt. Trump’s heterosexuality suits the Times; men who like women are suspect to great crimes, Nazi-like crimes, white supremacist type of outrages—according to the paper, that is.

Never mind. Biden has been instructed that Trump and Hitler are one and the same, and is about to conduct his reelection campaign accordingly. What is great help to sleepy Joe is the fact that there seems to be no boundaries left-wing journalists won’t cross when writing about conservative politicians. But why bring in Hitler? Why not Stalin or Mao or Lenin? Okay, I get it, although Adolf killed far less people than Stalin and Mao, he did pick on the Jews rather hard, if you know what I mean. I lived under German occupation when I was 4 years old until I was 7. I had a German fräulein as a nanny, a wonderful Prussian 60-year-old with white hair who ordered about the German officers who had occupied our house like a sergeant major. Some might not like to read this, but the officers were gentlemen and treated us with respect. I have German blood from my father’s side, and I was and remain a Germanophile despite how Hollywood depicts my favorite people.

Just off the top of my head, here’s a news dispatch from a Riviera journal of around 1920: “Patients were haunted by what they had seen—Germans ransacking villages, bayoneting babies, shooting the infirm.” Now, this is a crock, and the first thing to appear once the German army had swept the Belgo-French lines aside. The Belgians are nice people who produce great french fries and molest children. The Germans have produced Goethe, Schiller, Beethoven, Hoderlin, and Bismarck and have never bayoneted babies, but such are the joys of propaganda in wartime. The big lie stuck, then Hitler and his Nazis cemented the original lie.

I am lucky to have a good friend in Count Leopold Bismarck, the great-grandson of Otto, who depicts all the good that is German in his personality and manner. In his unassertive way, he has influenced style and fashion in present-day London, his kindness and superb, unaffected manners being the embodiment of a gentleman. But of course you wouldn’t expect a know-nothing ignoramus like Biden to compare Trump to someone as intelligent, perceptive, and gracious as Bismarck. It had to be Hitler, or no cigar.
