Trump And "The Strict Father Icon": Tough Guys "Win" By Toughness; Truth Is Inconsequential

Updated Compendium Of Pax Posts About Donald Trump

Update On Ivana Trump's Revelations Concerning Donald's Fondness For Hitler's Speeches 

Alan: Despite Trump's encouragement of the worst angels of our nature, I want him to win the Republican nomination thus revealing the terrified face of American conservatism.
Remember: If you're terrified, the terrorists won.
And you made their victory possible.

Dear C,

You've mentioned "the strict father icon" before.

Keen insight.

This time it took root.

Whether we are "religious," "spiritual" or "assiduously secular," we are in thrall to belief systems informed by our personal mythos.

But I must agree that it's remarkable that simply displaying the emotional strict father icon without any regard for the content of his speech (i.e., Trump's speech) (is enough for him to) remain the front runner in the Republican primary - that's a big surprise. I find that I don't have any sense of dismay for anything he says when I use that filter, He simply -- and consistently -- wants to appear bolder and tougher than anybody else in the field.

Dear C,

This is remarkable:

Trump: "I Could Stand In The Middle Of 5th Ave. And Shoot People And Wouldn't Lose Voters"

I'm again reminded of friend Fran's observation: 

Donald Trump: "Everything I'm About To Tell You Is A Lie." Supporters Cheer

Pax tecum,
