Peter Children Opinion: Trump’s mass hysteria is a dangerous cult

I am on my final glide path having covered that landscape called life, I now find my self surrounded with circumstances that are completely out of context to what once could be deemed normal.

Now there is no normal; normal no longer exists. It has been replaced with mass hysteria to the point never thought possible. Believe me it is very possible, it’s taking place right now. I am witnessing a once respected lawyer who enjoyed a place in his profession seldom reached. He was once consider a superstar in the courtroom… now in one felled swoop he himself destroyed a reputation that took a lifetime to assemble, turned to dust on the floor of the Senate by bluntly lying to the entire country with gibberish recorded on tape. Allen Dershowitz should have a guardian with him at all times. Now the newscasters are tearing his reputation apart brick by brick. I think the self-inflicted wounds will prove mortal to his life’s work. Why, why did he fall on his sword? He was trying to save Donald Trump from his just deserts thinking the mere weight of his once revered words would carry the ball over the goal line. Didn’t work, not even close. Today there’s blood in the floor in the Senate that is recorded in the annals of American history that will never wash off. With his own words he moved a lifetime of work to the wrong side of the page… a mere footnote to great mistakes.

During the Balkan war in the early nineties the Globe-Gazette called me in for a interview. A young girl drew the assignment and right off it was apparent she was out of her element. Nice girl, wrong assignment. When I asked her if she even knew where the Balkan’s were? She had a freshly earned degree in journalism from the “University of Iowa” and to show cause why she wasn’t familiar with her assignment that day and to further justify her ineptness of the subject, this is what she said to me; “Our instructor in journalism class told us to write at an 8th grade level.” Well now that answers a lot of questions that 30 years later fit that mold perfectly; the problem is it encompasses those sitting as judges in today’s Senate. Figures.

Throughout the history of this country there have been cults throughout the history of this country there have communes and cults that have shown the light on Charles Manson and Jim Jones. Jim Jones became infamous by having 240 people drink the Kool-Aid then fell dead along with himself. If you think it couldn’t happen again you’d be wrong….
