Will President Trump Make The Purge A Reality?

What if The Purge was a movie made by time travelers who came back to warn us about the Presidency of Donald Trump? Is it too late to save our great nation?While I was watching The Purge, it never even crossed my mind, Modern Philosophers, that the film might have been made by time travelers who came back to warn Americans about the Presidency of Donald Trump!

Now that I’ve had some time to form Deep Thoughts on the subject, I’m beginning to think that this theory holds a lot of water.

And even if the flick wasn’t made for by Hollywood time travelers seeking to rewrite history, don’t you think there’s at least the possibility that President Trump would make The Purge a reality?

The man’s platform seems to be solidly built on hate speech, the vilifying of foreigners, and the promise of taking extreme measures to make this country great again.  Plus, we know that he takes great pride in his Reality TV accomplishments.

The America depicted in The Purge was supposedly set in the 2020s.  That would make it the second term of Trump’s stay at the White House.  Given what you’ve heard from Donald Trump so far, Modern Philosophers, can you see a future in which he signs The Purge into law?

Now that I’ve put the idea in your head like a brain worm, you know that you are giving it serious Deep Thought.

How very Trump-like of me…

Why waste the time and money (even though Trump swears we wouldn’t be paying for it!) on a giant border wall with Mexico when you can just wait until Purge Night to kill all the people who’ve come into this country illegally?

Will President Trump Make The Purge A Reaility? | The Return of the Modern PhilosopherWhat better way to make America great again than by allowing its citizens to exercise their right to bear arms and police the streets one night a year?  Why not give red blooded Americans the honor of deciding who’s the true menace to our patriotic society?

Let’s arm the masses, rev them up with angry speeches about who and what is ruining this country, and then set them free to do the bidding of their infallible master!

We can televise it all, President Trump will be the Executive Orders Producer, and the rating will be through the roof!  Better yet, they’ll be HUUUUUUUUUUUGE!

Once Americans get a taste of (blood) The Purge, they’ll want to keep (cleansing) our country great, and will insist (perhaps with a little prompting) that we get rid of term limits so that President Trump can remain in power indefinitely.

While I’m only making an ironic point on my blog, Modern Philosophers, don’t you fear the future in a country led by a man who knows nothing about diplomacy, and always seems to say the first (hateful) thing that comes to mind?

Right now, he’s only using words as weapons.  What happens when he’s given the keys to our nuclear arsenal and can replace words with nuclear missiles?

Is the idea of  The Purge becoming a reality under President Trump really so hard to fathom?  He knows how to work his followers into a fervor, and history has proven that such leaders are often big trouble for those on the receiving end of the hate speech.

Donald Trump was campaigning in Maine today, Modern Philosophers.

Will President Trump Make The Purge A Reality? | The Return of the Modern PhilosopherThere was a bitter chill in the air, as the temperature plummeted to 10 degrees after it was in the 50s yesterday.

Clearly, something wicked was in the air.

I spent the morning whistling the Imperial Theme because I sensed a great disturbance in the Force.

Trump was far too close for my liking.

Maybe this blog is just a collection of wild tales written by a man who has watched far too many movies.

Or just maybe, I’m on to something.  You need to decide if you are going to heed my creative and entertaining Philosophical warnings before it is too late, or if you are going to sit idly by and prepare for a future where it will be legal for your neighbors and complete strangers to murder you.

Instead of voting with your heart this year, vote with your sanity.

It might just save your life!

    Awesome, Mod Phil! Totally awesome!

  3. Again with the wry irony and call to action. Excellent piece, Austin. “Vote with your sanity,” brilliant.
    I wonder if you have already read this article–it’s super-long and fascinating. Also, it unfortunately heralds possibly only the beginning of an environment in which Trump-like narcissist can rise to power. Vote with our sanity, indeed. Every single one of us needs to get out and VOTE.
    Peace to you, sir.

    Brilliant piece of thinking! Have a fab weekend Awesome 😀

  5. I don’t think Trump’s voters will use their heart or their brains. Their votes will come from another orifice in the human body and I’m not talking about the mouth or nose. Also, Rubio or Cruz might also be up to support an annual purge for anyone who doesn’t think like them and that would be more than half of us. The only difference will be that Trump would turn his Purge into a reality show with him as the host and there would be no rules because he wouldn’t care if even his voters were snuffed as long as the ratings were high for that show.

      Did anyone else notice the commercial for the new Purge movie that ran during the debate last night? It was like they were reading my mind…and my blog!

      • I missed the debate and that commercial, because I don’t watch political debates leading up to an election. I usually wait until the next morning and then read about the debate from two or more fact checking sites. I enjoy discovering who lied the most. So far, Trump is the emperor of lies. He has broken the record for political lies and promises that he can’t deliver unless he is declared dictator for life with total control over the very air we breathe. No politician running for office can even touch the new record for lies and misinformation that Trump has already spouted from his toilet mouth.

      • Austin says:

        The Democratic debate was a nice change of pace as they actually discussed the issues…

      • I did get that—that the Democratic debate was tame and focused on the issues, and the GOP was a farce that duplicated the behavior of grade school bullies at recess. I think the Republican Party is in its death throws. What will replace it—a circus?

      • Austin says:

        Some reality TV show produced by Trump. 🙂

      • That’s exactly what it was. Trump was the director and the leading clown. The American people paid for the production. Trump is the emperor of con-men, that came along and took away P.
        T. Barnum’s crown, who once said, “There’s a sucker born every minute.” And Trump has collected decades of those sucker minutes.

  6. SD Gates says:

    There is an eery resemblance between Trumps children and the group of purgers who came banging on the steel door in the first Purge. Just saying. I think you might be closer to the truth than any of us want to admit or face.

  7. Shirley Corder says:

    I have never seen or heard of “the Purge” but even here in S.Africa, we are seeing plenty of your presidential “race”. We too have a similarly chaotic run-up to our elections. Major difference: Your people take to writing their feelings. Some of ours take to burning trucks, buses and schools. (And then have to complain they don’t have enough. No comment.) But we would never DARE write a post like this one. People making derogatory comments on Facebook are landing with court cases and threats of jail. So at least you have that on your side America. You can write openly! We’re praying you WILL vote with your sanity and not your hearts. We could do with your prayers too! Well written Austin,

  8. Of course Trump would launch a reality show simlar to The Purge. His history in business already shows he doesn’t care who he hurts ergonomically as long as he makes a profit and walks away with more money.

  9. Nickoma Duncan says:

    Complete insanity on this blog.

  10. I was scared before reading this. I’m terrified now.

  11. Ellen Hawley says:

    I’d laugh if I was sure it couldn’t happen.

  12. anonymous says:

    I’ve actually been watching all three the past day… the actual start of the purge happens on March 21st 2017!!!! So I’d say your not far off from your suspicions. We as Americans need to start preparing for the worst now….

    You will not be able to stay home, brother,
    You will not be able to plug in, turn on and drop out
    You will not be able to lose yourself on skag and skip
    Skip out for beer during commercials
    Because the revolution will not be televised
