Stephen King Nails Donald Trump’s Midterms Campaign Message

Stephen King Nails Donald Trump’s Midterms Campaign Message With Just 2 Words “Be afraid.”

Damn right, Be afraid of the swamp being drained, be afraid of the crooked politicians getting ousted, be afraid of the border wall, be afraid that Americans want to come first for a change!

  1. Fear is a great persuader. Both sides use it. King is trying to make it sound like it’s unique to Trump. He’s either naive or a liar. Maybe both.

  2. “The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear [, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown].” — H.P.L., in *Supernatural Horror in Literature*.

    Who *really* cares about what Stephen King can say ? He’s not a thinker and he’s not even a good writer.

    P.S. edit/fix : Besides, he just reuses the first sentence of an old commercial eyecatcher slogan for Cronenberg’s *The Fly* created from Georges Langelaan’s story, which was possibly used in the movie itself too (“Be afraid. Be very afraid.”). A mere warning in form of a call to primary fear instead of *reasons* : how clever !

    P.P.S. : Mr Gerry D., please excuse me for giving my 2 cents about such American a topic, but here, a few of us share the same reaction in front of similar attacks. 😉

  3. I hate King’s politics, but: not a good writer?

    M. Blumroch, he must lose something in translation!   He IS good, nay, great, IMHO!  Try a collection called Different Seasons

  4. It has been interesting to note that inside my twitter feed, the Stephen King recent tweet about how the migrants need to come here, and humanitarian Americans will ensure they are welcome, was met with hundreds of people replying -“Stephen, you are the guy with hundreds of millions of dollars. If this is important to you, be our guest and tear the wall around your Maine compound down. Then let many of them live with you.”

    That’s great. Regular people are finally discovering that limousine liberals don’t give a rat’s patootie about their fellow citizens because they don’t need to deal with the problems created the policies they advocate. Leftists are against walls, except for the ones around them.

  6. The new talking points went out. All media outlets are using that fear and lies line about Trump. The sad thing is half the country is too stupid to notice all of the media are repeating the same lines word for word.

    In my opinion, from what I know of him, King will be forgotten (except by specialists) when the names of HPL, Robert Bloch, Fritz Leiber Jr. and Richard Matheson (to name just a few) will still find readers. *Vita brevis*, thus I admit I will not give him another chance (2 or 3 novels I can’t even remember the names of, read circa 1995, are enough for me, plus 2 or 3 bad movies based upon his works). Seems to me as overestimed as Neil Gaiman is (except when the latter writes with Terry Pratchett).

    Now, I don’t want to start a literary war. 😉 If you please, let’s just agree, thanks to Mr 10 Cents witty word, on the high quality of *The Man Who Would Be King*, both short story and movie (where  Connery and Cain are exceptional). 😉

    Lovecraft, are you serious?!?  

    Gaiman….well, I did love American Gods,  but the concept more than his writing.

    Pratchett I will never cease to mourn. ARE WE HAVING FUN YET?

    The Man Who Would Be King  is the best movie ever made and my all time favorite!

    This title is in my top 25 of the best — too difficult to *rank* each of them individually at this level of excellence : Mankiewicz’s *Sleuth*, *All About Eve* and *The Barefoot Contessa*, Lewin’s *Pandora* and *The Moon and Sixpence*, Kurosawa’s *Dersu Uzala*, Schaffner’s *Patton*, Milius’ *Conan* and a few others. 😉

    I just remember a Kipling-like short story whose spirit is similar (not identical : similar, or analog) to the one in *The Man Who Would Be King*. It’s *The Kings of Orion* by this very John Buchan I tried in vain to promote here through a post before my understanding I did not belong here — it is included in *The Moon Endureth*, freely available at any good Gutenberg Project’s Web site.

    While I’m at it, there’s also a little known adventure movie whose spirit is rather Kipling-like : *The Wind and the Lion*, directed by John Milius… and, should this matter, you’ll see both Connery and Huston. 😉

    The other day I was watching Fox news around 11Am, and then I flipped to CNN. Both news stations had up the same banner graphic about the hardships  facing the people of the caravan. The banner contained the exact same size, exact same shape, and the exact same words. The only difference was how on the right side of the banner on CNN, the banner  read “CNN” and over on Fox, the right hand side of the banner read “FOX.”

    This is why I limit my Fox viewing to Hannity, Tucker and Judge Jeanine plus Greg Gutfield and Waters world. With the occasional viewing of Judge Jeannine and Laura I.

    The CIA has won over the world of journalism. Just as Bill Casey predicted to the CIA recruits over three decades ago.
