Poor Richard's Print Shoppe



Clinton-Umbridge 2008



This one will not make sense to anyone who isn't familiar with a certain famous wizard and the books about him - which would be a total of perhaps 31 people on the entire planet at this point...

When I was first introduced to the character of Dolores Umbridge in "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," what struck me was her uncanny resemblance - ideological and tactical - to a certain infamous political figure in contemporary American politics. That politician is struggling, as you read this, to become Headmaster of the United States of America and to impose upon all of us a regimen of neo-fascistic edicts that would do the Senior Undersecretary to the Minister of Magic proud.

I, like many, was vastly disappointed to learn that Ms. Clinton had not been cast for the role of Umbridge in David Yates' film version of the book - she wouldn't even have had to act.

Oh well.

We can, however, draw the parallel - so as to bring into focus the pernicious nature of Clinton's sugar-coated fascism.
