If You Hire An Exterminator--Is This Why People Support Donald Trump?

I saw a post on a website explaining why people passionately support Trump. This was just a regular person, posting with passion. Put yourself in her world view and it all makes perfect sense. We're being invaded by--her metaphor is raccoons, though she makes clear that those "rabid, messy, mean raccoons" represent "illegal aliens," and tens of thousands of Muslim Refugees," or as she later says, "every Tom, Ricardo and Hasid." 

I hope I'm not violating her copyright by including some of it here: 

Here is the reason so many Americans have boarded the Trump Train, and why you have lost us :

“You’ve been on vacation for two weeks, you come home, and your basement is infested with raccoons. Hundreds of rabid, messy, mean raccoons have overtaken your basement. You want them gone immediately…You call the city and four different exterminators, but nobody could handle the job. There is this ONE guy however, who guarantees you he will get rid of them, so you hire him. You don’t care if the guy smells, you don’t care if the guy swears, you don’t care how many times he’s been married, you don’t care if he was friends with liberals,….you simply want those raccoons gone! 
You want your problem fixed! He’s the guy. He’s the best. Period.
Here’s why we want Trump: Yes he’s a bit of an ass, yes he’s an egomaniac, but we don’t care." 

She goes on to talk about how "The Republican Party is two-faced & gutless. Illegal aliens have been allowed to invade our nation. We want it all fixed! We don’t care that Trump is crude, we don’t care that he insults people, we don’t care that he had been friendly with Hillary, we don’t care that he has changed positions, we don’t care that he’s been married three times, we don’t care that he fights with Megan Kelly and Rosie O’Donnell, we don’t care that he is not PC. 
This country is weak, bankrupt, our enemies are making fun of us, we are being invaded by illegal aliens and bringing tens of thousands of Muslim refugees to America, while leaving Christians behind to be persecuted and beheaded .
We are becoming a nation of victims where every Tom, Ricardo and Hasid is part of a special group with special rights, to the point where we don’t even recognize the country we were born and raised in; “AND WE JUST WANT IT FIXED” and Trump is the only guy who seems to understand what WE THE PEOPLE WANT.
We’re sick of politicians. We’re sick OF THE TWO PARTIES .We just want this thing fixed. Trump may not be a saint, but he isn’t beholden to lobbyist money and he doesn’t have political correctness restraining him." 

She finishes with discussion of Trump's success, etc, and then says, "When he says he’ll fix it, we believe him because he is too much of an egotist to be proven wrong or looked at and called a liar.

 Oh yeah…I forgot…we don’t care if the guy has bad hair either. verifiable
We just want those raccoons gone. Out of your house. NOW !


This woman can write. She expresses herself in a clear and funny way. I'd say it's even witty. And to me, terrifying. 

And you know? I'll say it. I'll use my own metaphor; I'll take that risk: Her rant sounds like what Germans said about Hitler. "We don't care what he represents, he will make us great again. We don't care that he's the exterminator, we don't care that there is really maybe only one basement skinny, non-rabid raccoon in the entire city today, we don't care who else he may poison, or that his business is really a front for something else. We just want those raccoons gone." 

I know raccoons are a real problem. We had one in the crawlspace under our house--no wait, that was a possum, and she stank. The dogs did some barking, chased her into the yard, she played dead, we called them inside, and that was the end of our possum. We all survived. 

And you know? I guess I'm okay with this woman voting the way she chooses, along with several million others.

Just as long as the guy doesn't win. I don't want this exterminator at my house.
