“We’ve got a terrible situation with this great patriot, he’s out of control and we must save him from himself.” OSS Chief “Wild Bill” Donovan, on outspoken Gen. George S. Patton
Crazy thought, right? Well, just humor this thought for a second, those of you who believe in reincarnation (the rest of you guys in the skeptic’s corner can dismiss this article if you haven’t already).
From an observation of Donald Trump, he seems to find a strong personal affinity to Patton. The only one who may know, for sure, would be Trump himself, if he can remember his early childhood and what toys liked to play with, or games, and what or who he was drawn to.
Gen. George S. Patton, who died as a result of an automobile accident in 1945, was pilloried for his criticism of allied war leaders. He believed in reincarnation and loved poetry. He wrote some pretty great poetry himself, which was depicted in the movie “Patton.” Trump recites poetry in campaign speeches, most notably “The Snake.” Patton had a personality type very similar to Trump. He was outspoken, very blunt, but charismatic and a master tactician that was hell-bent on winning, sometimes to a fault. But it worked. He was the ONLY general the Germans feared in World War II.
What Patton was to tank warfare, Trump is to psychological warfare, which is the Clinton’s game. He knows the media, and it is unlikely any other candidate would have gotten this far without an intimate knowledge of the Clinton mind and understanding of their media manipulation.
Trump is a business man, but he understands war quite well. Trump’s greatness was long established before he entered politics and ran against the Chosen One, but now it has become a movement. His war, for now, is against the media that according to Wikileaks emails exposing collusion between the DNC and media chiefs, conspired to undermine any opposing candidate that faced Hillary.
Now these are just thoughts that occurred to yours truly while remembering Patton and noticing how much they looked alike, acted alike. Take from them what you will.
