Game of Thrones author RR Martin on Trump presidency. "Winter is coming. I told you so."

If anybody understands the psyche of a megalomaniac clawing his way to power, using any means necessary, it is RR Martin.

If this man says that Donald Trump is a danger to this country, you can take that to the bank.

Well great I used to watch the "Game of Thrones" as an escape from reality, but now it's more like  fucking documentary of the future of this country.

Where are the dragons when you need them?

    The 1933 Scenario ls No Longer Hypothetical

    "Karl Marx’s famous maxim that history repeats itself, the first time as tragedy and the second time as farce, has itself been repeated too often, both in contexts where it fits and ones where it doesn’t. This time around, we damn well better hope it’s true. Farce, failure and incompetence are among the better possible outcomes of a Trump administration. The worse outcomes — which come more clearly into focus with every noxious new appointment, and every new report of a hate crime that the president-elect hasn’t heard about or blandly disavows — are almost too much to think about."

    If only this were a movie and not a metastasizing reality threatening the deepest values of our democracy, the welfare of every citizen, and our standing in a globalized world.

    ...Sadly, as 2016 comes to a close and the unprecedented results of this election continue to unfold these news stories and more make for a disturbing documentary that future generations will watch. I can hardly imagine what their reaction will be to this time in history as the events of today are told with the perspective of a time yet to be.

    But this documentary is made yet. It will include more than the horrifying realities making headlines today, it will also tell the response of the people to an unparalleled election and the actions of the President-elect.

    As much as I think about the present moment and how to respond to the daily barrage of shock and sadness as the values of this country are assaulted by the President-elect and the leaders of the Republican Party, I think about the story, the witness, we collectively owe to history and to the future generations who will ask about this time.

      The sad thing is we have to live through this part of history. As Americans we are so use to looking from the outside in. Now we are in. And shit just got real.

    It can happen here: But has it? The 1933 scenario is no longer hypothetical

    None of us could stop Donald Trump, and comparisons to 1933 no longer seem ludicrous. What do we do now?

    When I first watched Game of Thrones by my son's request, I was appalled. I didn't know what I was watching and thought is this a manual on how white people treat each other? As the show went on, I realized, it was fantasy from man who understood how things work in kingdoms. Still appalled. Even more so when I cheered when Ramsey's dogs ate him. I became one of the Game of Thrones characters. George Martin did that to me. Watch out for those story tellers. They can tap into your superhero, or you villain.

    Let me get his straight... The party that is arming Islamic State in Syria in order to overthrow Assad... The party that is trying to overthrow Assad in order to get pipeline transit rights to Qatar... The party that wants to pipe Qatari gas to Europe and destabilize Russia's economy... The party that is forcing Russia to enter the Mideast theater and risking global confrontation.... *That* party is apparently the party of peace. As opposed to the party that wants to get out of the Mideast altogether... *that* party is the war party?

    Up is down. Black is white. And apparently Summer must be coming,

    Michael Moore warned us too.

    But did we listen?
