So... this happened.

[twitter.com]

And somehow, this is a viable political candidate who controls the RNC.

Okay, context and background.

The gesture is far and away most likely an impromptu ‘salute’ based on the long time Qanon slogan, ”Where we go one, we go all”.

Trump was dialing his adoption off Q BS up to “11” during this rally, to the point of, during his speech, even playing a version of the cult’s musical refrain, called, you guessed it, “Wwg1wga“ (there’s your creepy background music, Steve).

Seattle Times
”While speaking in Youngstown in support of J.D. Vance, whom he has endorsed as Ohio’s Republican nominee for the Senate, Trump delivered a dark address about the decline of the U.S. over music that was all but identical to a song called “Wwg1wga” — an abbreviation for the QAnon slogan, “Where we go one, we go all.”

As Trump spoke, scores of people in the crowd raised fingers in the air in an apparent reference to the “1” in what they thought was the song’s title.”




National Suicide Prevention Lifeline
As of July 16, 2022, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is now available by simply dialing 988. The previous number, 1-800-273-8255, will remain active.

I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

and your point is? impromptu or not the parallels are undeniable.

it was not a nazi salute like Blank says, but the point is that it is almost indistinguishable from a nazi salute. No pol in their right mind would try to elicit such a visual.

I think the B.S. he is spewing is worse than the "salute".

Its been a while since I've listened to his incoherent ramblings. Its amazing that the words keep coming yet have so little meaning.

They strike me as part and parcel.

He spews, and his audience salutes.

If he were just some Hyde Park crazy, he'd get a mere hand full of cheers and jeers while the bulk of the world moves on.

But that's not the case, and the supporters are getting pretty scary.

It's not a true Nazi salute, that's correct.

But it's not the religious 'there is only one way— God' thing either.

That one guy in the background on 45*'s left...

Big 'OOOOPS!' on his part.

It's a small consolation, but some of his rallies don't seem to pack them in quite as much.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Agreed, I saw a video on Twitter of mostly empty seats in the arena.

There is a difference between pointing the index finger and holding out the whole hand while shouting Heil. I can remember one college football crowd that did the single index finger to proclaim, "We're number one!" Still, these Trump crowds are creepy.

I don't pretend to know much about Qanon, although I have been hearing about them for -- what -- five or six years maybe? They seem to change their concerns and crazy obsessions about as often as the rest of us change sox. Did anybody ever claim to know who Q is? Is Q a group in the way that Anonymous is/was?

To Speedy et al: Is there some way to get photos of the Trump crowds from different angles, in order to show that the crowds as a whole are not very impressive? I would imagine that this could be done from half a mile away with a drone.

WAR IS PEACE
FREEDOM IS SLAVERY
IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH

FTFY.

But seriously, 45 was seriously spouting off some bat$h!t crazy stuff in the twitter video above. Straight out of the Orwellian playbook.

They're doing it to mean "Heil."

The finger is extended just to cloud the issue when they're called out for it.

That's how they do stuff.

They think it's clever.

I saw those same videos. They clearly showed an indoor venue at about 15-25% capacity. Vids that have now drifted into Twitter oblivion. They were once clever enough to book small rooms and overflow them, now Trump seems to insist on large venues they can longer fill (even when paid).

DeSantis is a bit smarter and would appear to have already snaked enough support from under Trump to insure they'll either be some sort of truce or all out GOP war. The latter would be my own preference. popcorn smiley

There is a nice symmetry to "fight fire with fire", but I'm not sure fighting "crazy with crazy" works.

It doesn't matter if it is literally a Nazi salute, or what the origin is. It's the same sort of collective mind giving oneself over to a cult leader, and it's dangerous.
