Analysis of Seigfried’s Comparison of Loki and Trump

Another awesome analysis of Karl Siegfried’s disgusting article comparing Loki to Trump. This author also notes his questionable credentials.

A Polytheistic Life

Okay, so I definitely responded in the comment section to this latest travesty of an article from Karl E.H. Siegfried, Column: Loki in the White House, where the author compares Trump to Loki, but I think I need to do a more in-depth analysis than the short overview I provided the other day. Fair warning – this is going to be long.

  1. When I saw the article on WH, I couldn’t even bring myself to read that unclean, profane, sacrilegious excrement of a column. Even before we look at the wrongness of comparison for religous reasons, it is obvious Trump is a stooge with half a brain cel, and Loki is beyond cunning and wily.

    I’m glad many have spoken out against it, but I just can’t bring myself to read that WH hosted steaming pile. 💩

    • i couldn’t either. I looked at it and went ‘nope.” i wade through enough pollution day to day both in our communities and in my day job. That’s why I’m so glad other people are tearing it apart. it’s a piece of steaming horse shit. I don’t think much more of its author
