First, I will seek to purge the federal government…, 2016


First, I will seek to purge the federal government of officials appointed by my predecessor. Then I want to place tighter controls on the free press. This, of course, after dividing people, and blaming "others" for, well, everything.

Hmm, why does this sound eerily familiar? Wasn't there a 20th century leader who was democratically elected, then changed the government from democracy to dictatorship by first purging the government of anyone who wasn't loyal to him, and restricting the press? I can't think of who that was...

Oh well, no matter, that was a long time ago, and those kinds of things would never happen in a Western Democracy.
