"The United States is extremely lucky that no honest, charismatic figure has arisen... ...Every charismatic figure is such an obvious crook that he destroys himself, like McCarthy or Nixon, or the evangelist preachers, If somebody comes along who is charismatic and honest, this country is in real trouble because of the frustration, disillusionment, the justified anger, and the absence of any coherent response. What are people supposed to think if someone says 'I have got an answer, we have an enemy'? There [Weimar Republic] it was the Jews. Here it will be the illegal immigrants and the blacks. We will be told that white males are a persecuted minority. We will be told we have to defend ourselves and the honour of the nation. Military forces will be exalted. People will be beaten up."
