Who needs zombies when we have Republicans ... Because Trumpism is a cancer on the body politic, the treatment will require radical interventions

"Trump’s ... adherents are incapable of seeing that the man’s evil extends far beyond his intemperate tweets."

The zombie "I didn't vote for Trump" Trumpers will again fail to mentally absorb the fact that they did and will vote for Trump again because they prefer chaos violence over order and peace.

White supremacists and racists are coming out of the woodwork as Trump refuses to fall over after his political death.

Will this be the most racist era in US politics since the emancipation of non-whites?

Will Trump gain a wider following as his dementia worsens and nonsense becomes political currency?

... Unfortunately, the de-Stalinization that Khrushchev started in 1956 didn’t completely discredit the Soviet dictator. Indeed, according to recent polls, an astounding 70 percent of Russians approve of Stalin’s role in Soviet history.

Trump’s personality cult exerts a similar effect. His adherents are incapable of seeing that the man’s evil extends far beyond his intemperate tweets. No speech by Joe Biden is going to make any difference. Not even denunciations by former Trumpers — Michael Cohen, John Bolton, John Kelly — have done much of anything. Trump’s support only grew from 2016 to 2020.

So, what will it take to avoid the Stalin scenario? In an article about three historical parallels — Reconstruction, de-Nazification, and de-Baathification — I conclude that a mere speech won’t do the trick.

Because Trumpism is a cancer on the body politic, the treatment will require radical interventions, including the transformation of the Republican Party, a purge of Trumpists from government, and the indictment of the president and his top cronies as a criminal enterprise. To avoid a second Civil War, however, a second American Revolution would need to address the root causes of Trumpism, especially political corruption, deep-seated racism, and extreme economic inequality.

In this way, the leader can be properly stigmatized while the followers can be progressively de-zombified.

One thing is for certain: If the Biden administration doesn’t take firm and decisive action against the illegalities of the Trump team, if Biden doesn’t address the root causes of the zombification of half the electorate, the new president will be eaten alive. ...
