The world looks aghast at the USA. The new president Trump is what nobody wanted to believe - as bad as he said he is. Or even worse.
He already stopped grants to science (people don't even know if they get paid at the end of month). After the White House webpages on climate change got deleted on the day of inauguration, now the EPA has to delete them, too. (Did you really think, after Trump asked for a list of scientist and staff, he will do nothing?)
The Department of Agriculture is also banned from speaking about scientific results - as are others.
Today Trump will announce the building of a great wall after already stopping a lot of immigration possibilities.
His Propaga... sorry, Speaker. His speaker already, on his first day, told blatant lies in the face of journalists, and talking about an "alternative" truth.No, that is not idiocy or incompetence or anything on that line. That is part of establishing a new "truth"!
Why can I say that? First, because nobody that is as dumb as all this looks gets into power.
Second because I am from Germany. We already had all that.
We had someone who said "Germany first! Make Germany great again!".
We had someone who only took from other countries and not giving anything back.
We had it that university departments where closed and new ones were established, that teached "Rassenkunde".
We had it that people from a certain background were harassed, regardless of their personal conduct.
We had it that scientific results were destroyed so that nobody could use them. Of course, that was before the time of the internet. You could not just delete websites that didn't fit into your ideology back then. You needed a bit of physical work for that.Don't say you weren't warned. You were. Several month ago. Don't feign ignorance.
Do not accept that your president decides what the truth is or who is from "a good race" or not.
