There are now 100 days to go before the American election, and we find out whether we will be condemned to live in Donald Trump's nightmare world.
Or whether Hillary Clinton and her progressive army, will be able to bring down the man some of his crazed followers are now calling the God Emperor.
For it is as the Globe says, a choice between sanity and insanity.
The 2016 U.S. presidential race is not like elections past. It is not just a choice between right and left. The old borders are being redrawn by the parties, and by a restless, cranky electorate. No, the cleavage this year is different, and deeper. The line of demarcation is stark. It is no exaggeration to say that the choice in November is between sanity and insanity.
And that dangerous demagogue has never sounded so deranged.
For this is how he reacted to Hillary Clinton's fabulous convention...
Which made his convention look like a ratty dog and pony show.
Or a low budget Nuremberg rally.
With a stream of tweets each one crazier than the other.
A threat to beat up some of those who dared criticize him.
“I mean, the things that were said about me,” Trump told the crowd. “I was going to hit a number of those speakers so hard their heads would spin, they’d never recover!”
Including the former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
“I was going to hit one guy in particular, a very little guy. I was going to hit this guy so hard his head would spin. He wouldn’t know what the hell happened.”
And as if that wasn't insane enough, as his rabid followers chanted "lock her up," by vowing to stop being a "nice guy."
Trump on "lock her up" chant: "I'm starting to agree with you... I'm taking the gloves off" https://t.co/EHDJnAwZRx https://t.co/lzPgcPcXxQ— CNN (@CNN) July 29, 2016
Which should be enough to have that ghastly bully arrested, or confined to a mental institution.
But don't tell that to some of his crazed followers, for they really do believe he is the God Emperor.
Hundreds of posts in Reddit’s The_Donald forum ― where Donald Trump this week participated in a Q&A session ― refer to the Republican presidential nominee as “God Emperor.”
“We know he can’t literally be one,” wrote member NewJersey908, but the phrase whips people “into a frenzy saying that we literally want a dictator.”
For while some on that site might be attempting to be ironic, many are neo-nazis...
The site, which is more popular than the one dedicated to Pokemon Go, is filled with violent images of Hillary hate...
Which only makes sense since Trump's religious fanatic of a running mate is vowing to destroy women's rights.
“I’m pro-life and I don’t apologize for it,” he said during a town-hall meeting. “We’ll see Roe vs. Wade consigned to the ash heap of history where it belongs.”
“While we’re choosing a president for the next four years, this next president will make decisions that will impact our Supreme Court for the next 40,” Pence told supporters during the town hall. “Go tell your neighbors and your friends, for the sake of the rule of law, for the sake of sanctity of life, for the sake of our Second Amendment, for the sake of all our other God-given liberties, we must ensure the next president appointing justices to the Supreme Court is Donald Trump.”
As well as exterminating gay rights, and triggering a race war in America.
Which in turn only makes statements like this one even scarier.
For any progressive who might consider voting for Trump is as deranged as he is.
And just as dangerous...
Because it really is a choice between sanity and insanity.
The fate of the world really does hang in the balance.
And that dangerous fascist maniac must be defeated.
Before he destroys us all...
