    Nigel Farage warns Democrats: If you 'martyr' Donald Trump what follows 'could be ver

    “ Nigel Farage warns Democrats: If you 'martyr' Donald Trump what follows 'could be very sinister indeed'

    Donald Trump risks being made a martyr if the Democrats try to impeach or silence him, his friend Nigel Farage warns today.

    In his first interview since Trump supporters rioted in the Capitol Building in Washington, Mr Farage, who was in Washington on election day, warns that "if you take Trump out of the picture then what follows Trump could be very sinister indeed".

    Speaking to the Telegraph's Trump Card podcast, which you can listen to on the audio player above, he says: "If you take Trump out of the picture, you silence him completely. Then there is a real danger that somebody who is genuinely demagogic comes along."“

    Glad Farage is sticking his long nose into this

    Appease this wannabe demagogue, or an even worse one might come along. That's one approach, another is that Trump suffering no meaningful consequences at all for his actions will do much more to embolden any future authoritarian.
    There were reports (credible ones, I don't know) that some members of congress in the GOP voted to object to states certifying Biden because they were worried about future violence towards them or their families.
    It should go without saying, but none of this is the way to run a democracy.

      Farage is quite correct of course but those who oppose Trump have become so hysterical that they are going to everything necessary to create the next "Trump", but that iteration will be battle-hardened and know exactly what to expect.

      They need to confront the forces that created him and do something about the decline of the middle-class and the rise of China. Every civilisation needs it's defining narrative; they are killing it.

      But they won't.

        Nah, Trump is unique scumbag just like other well known political scumbags before him who caused a lot of damage - he should be taken out of equation (via jail route ideally).

          I wonder what could be more sinister than a mob storming the capital building looking for politicans to kill? I guess we wouldn't want that Nigel.

              Same mob only armed with their AR-15s and other legal weapons.

                He has a point, we are moving towards the situation that created Hitler and other despots. The people will be poor and disenfranchised.

                They need to change government behaviour.
                "If you didn't do anything that wasn't good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous."

                I want to see the hand of history on his collar.

                  He argues that Trump should be left alone because of that



                  If Hitler was put into jail for 20 years for his beer putch then a lot of bad things would not have happened, same thing here.

                    Alexei, when it comes to politics, to say you lack subtlety is the understatement of the year
