“Trump Will Complete German Idealism”

Behold: the first time the name of Friedrich Hölderlin has ever been mentioned during a street protest in the United States. He throws in Fichte, Schelling, Kant, and Hegel for good measure.

Does anyone know what "city" he's referring to which is going to be raised? And what's that Schelling quote at the end?

  2. Trump is going to be so bummed if he hears about this. To think he chose “Make America Great Again” when he could have used “Make German Idealism Real.” What a missed opportunity!
