I had the misfortune on the weekend of reading a Henderson column.
Oh dear. He clearly has no idea of history.
Let us go back to the rise of Nazi Germany. The Nazis put out a lot of propaganda on the jews. It did not work at first. In 1934 when They recommended people boycott retail stores owned by Jews most Germans ignored it and kept on shopping at said stores. There are photos of old women walking past burly SA thugs and shopping in such stores. The 'boycott' lasted one day. However by 1938 and when Kristallnacht eventuated most Germans ( according to both Gestapo and Sopade records) agreed Jews were a fifth column in Germany. One must remember that most people thought war was about to occur. So within four years there was a vast turnaround in attitudes. ( We might call it Goebbels's revenge who was humiliated in 1934).Thus it took 4 years for their propaganda to inculcate German culture.
Lets fast forward to Donald Trump. He e realises his lies will be seen for what they are so calls all the press fake news. He tries to subvert major institutions which are vital for democracy. ( See HERE and HERE for example)
Thus in 2020 most republican voters believe Trump lost the election because of voter fraud.
See any similarities. It is all too much for Henderson. He never was a true conservative merely a faux conservative.
Mo wonder he writes for the Australian.
The elevation of Trump to President has shown us all the faux conservatives, pseudo intellectuals who are too lazy and simply do not have the mind to understand simple but important concepts.
