Once he's sworn into office, could Trump unleash his very own, Republican Reichsmordwoche or "night of the long knives"? That was the week when Adolph Hitler purged his movement of potential threats, such as SA head Ernst Rhom.
The number murdered by the SS and Gestapo is unknown. 85 prominent Nazis were executed, possibly hundreds. A thousand others, Nazis and critics were arrested and taken away.
Flash forward to November, 2016. Republican House Speaker, Paul Ryan, showed up on TV Wednesday morning with knee pads on, swearing allegiance up and down to Donald Trump, who he praised for single-handedly winning the White House, the House and the Senate for the Republicans and promising that he would do whatever Donald wanted - anything. Anything.
The problem is that Trump whipped his followers into a foaming at the mouth frenzy and now they want blood, starting with the traitors in their own ranks.
As Barack Obama used to say, elections have consequences, and the new American right — let's call them that, because they loathe the old American right — is hungry for consequences to begin.
They want a reckoning for all those Republican traitors who repudiated Trump during the campaign (one of Trump's spokespeople told a reporter election night his boss has a long enemies list) and action on all those promises, particularly the big six: The Wall, Lock Up Hillary, Deport the Illegals, Seal off America to Muslims, Repeal Obamacare, and force companies to Bring Back Those Jobs from Overseas.
Coulter has helpfully organized Trump's first 100 days in office.
Day One, she says, Trump should "start building the wall." She then lists 98 more entries titled "continue building the wall."
Breitbart editor at large Peter Schweizer was warning on Thursday that Trump, who repeatedly denounced Hillary Clinton as a criminal, must make good on his promise to appoint a special Hillary prosecutor.
...Among other Trump promises less discussed today, but certain to be insisted upon by his base: defunding Planned Parenthood and getting rid of the Environmental Protection Agency; ordering heavy surveillance of U.S. mosques and closing some if need be; recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel; bringing back torture for detainees; "bombing the shit out of ISIS"; getting out of the Iran deal; imposing new taxes on imports; getting rid of gun-free zones at schools; reversing Obama's executive orders preventing deportation of some illegal immigrants; massive tax cuts; and repealing regulations curbing Wall Street greed and protecting consumers.
Trump has a well-deserved reputation for overselling, promising what he could not possibly deliver, milking Gullibillies and then leaving them holding the bag. He's made a lot of promises, promises of blood. His base is going to expect him to deliver. These are indeed interesting times.
