A 93-Year-Old Prophecy Comes To Pass

A Brilliant Prophecy From 93 Years Ago.

H.L. Mencken (born 1880 - died 1956) was a journalist, satirist, critic, and Democrat. He wrote this editorial while working for the Baltimore Evening Sun, which appeared in the July 26, 1920 edition.

"As democracy is perfected, the office of the President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day, the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron."
---H.L. Mencken, The Baltimore Evening Sun, July 26, 1920

So it was written and so it has come to pass.

I love it, and I bet he had no idea that he was talking about his own party back then. Of course we all realize that back then the democratic party was far different than it is today but it was born out of that democratic party anyway.

The quote is true, but taken out of context. And on the political scene, this quote was accurately used to describe shrub bush. A most fitting tribute to that idiot that goobers revere so much.

Furthermore, Mencken was very confused by his elitism and anti-semitism, and even thought he claimed to be democratic, he was by all accounts a conservative thinker, so much so that libertarians try to claim his blather as their own
