Genocide Watchis an organization that exists, according to its website, to "Predict, prevent, stop, and punish genocide and other forms of mass murder." Its purpose is to "build an international movement to prevent and stop genocide."
One of the pages on its website titled "10 Stages of Genocide," for which the organization's President Gregory H. Stanton, George Mason University Research Professor in Genocide Studies and Prevention, School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution, delineates the steps governments responsible for mass exterminations have traditionally followed.
These steps are not sequential and may occur simultaneously.
They are also preventable.
How many do we recognize playing out in Donald Trump's America today?
The first stage is classification.
According to Genocide Watch:
"All cultures have categories to distinguish people into 'us and them' by ethnicity, race, religion, or nationality: German and Jew, Hutu and Tutsi. Bipolar societies that lack mixed categories, such as Rwanda and Burundi, are the most likely to have genocide."
He claimed 40,000 Nigerians would never "go back to their huts" after coming here.
It's also no secret what he thinks of the media, which he smears with the label "fake news" and "enemy of the people" should it deign to report anything negative about what his administration is up to.
Trump refers to his political opponents as "globalists" who "want the globe to do well, frankly, not caring about our country."
Those "globalists," according to Trump, support "caravans" of "unknown Middle Easterners" en route from Central America to wreak havoc on American sovereignty.
When it comes to elections, says Trump, the "globalists" depend on millions of non-American "illegals" showing up in droves to vote.
