Then you miss the forest by staring at a tree.

It's a statement showing that one person desires great harm upon another person while a 3rd ignores the whole thing.  It's an allegory of our social circumstances mirroring those of Germany ~80 years ago.

Are we not seeing this very thing being played out right here in this thread?  Trump (first 3rd) wants someone to leave (second 3rd) while some in this thread imitate the Three Apes* (the final 3rd) as they ignore or rationalize away the first 3rd.

* - See no evil, here no evil, speak no evil. The willful ignorance of the indifferent.

I don't think I'm missing the point. I understand what the guy is trying to say and imply but I think he's going about it the wrong way.

Most comparisons of the US Government of 2019 to the German government of the 1930s are ridiculous because people who make these comparisons either dont understand how the government operates or are just chasing clout.

From what I've read pretty much everyone in the thread believes what Trump tweeted was bad. The argument happening is whether the tweets were racist or not. And if you look at opinion polling most Americans think Trump's tweets were bad too. 

Which makes them fall into either the first or last third.  But you are still looking at trees because you are trying to equate poll values to the proportionality of thirds rather than seeing the thirds as merely segments of a whole.

A whole broken into 3 segments can be considered thirds even if specific values of each third are not equal.  To be frank, it is this very pedantic analysis that you are doing right now that myself and others are having with KLAMarine. And it's a coverup to give the appearance of prudent skepticism, objectivity and impartiality when it's really a guise for being in the first or last third without overtly saying it.
