A Land Gone Mad

We know now that even the right wing FBI and all of our right wing intelligence services (because right wing is what they have always been) admit that the spies of a foreign dictator were major factors in the election of the man who criminally sits in the White House (well, except on the weekends, when we pay $3 million so he can play golf.)

Hey, so what?

In the entire history of this country, for almost two and a half centuries, if anything like this had happened, this man would be out of the White House and in jail by now, if he had not already faced execution.

But this time around?  Who cares?

We watched as Republicans shouted at the top of their voices about utterly made up crimes that Obama and Hillary had allegedly committed; which even if they had been real would have amounted to almost nothing compared to the high treason that Donald Trump has obviously, beyond the shadow of a doubt, committed.  We watched them demand impeachment and imprisonment over and over again.  Year after year, screams about Benghazi and e-mails, about how he was a Communist and a Muslim, and how she was eternally corrupt because she got paid to give a speech. And no one with a real voice would step forward to put a stop to this disgusting indecency.

The only real story in this country since the election of the criminal Reagan has been the abuse of this country's laws and standards by one party- the Republicans- to cheat and lie and bully their way into power.  Their entire account of history and reality has been nothing but a gigantic, savage distortion of reality, and no one thought it might be a good idea to stop them spreading it.

So, here is the result: a pathological liar, a corrupt criminal in his private life, and now in his use of his office to enrich his family, a traitor who is deliberately destroying our relationship with our allies, while doing anything that a certain foreign dictator wants, a sociopathic sadist who glories in his ability to inflict pain on people, and openly gloats that no one can stop him.  And he is our leader, because the Republican party decided that building a base of wretched, rage and greed filled, ignorant racists was the only way for the rich who are the Republicans' only real constituency to maintain control.

And it's all okay.  And when things go inevitably, disastrously wrong, as they did in the last Republican administration, we all know that the press will be right there to help them blame it on the Democrats.

Yesterday, while the Senate hearings that revealed just the briefest glimpse of Trump's treason went on, Trump himself was tweeting out lies about what was being said in front of the whole nation.  And today, one of CNN's paid political experts came on TV to declare several times that Trump was not lying at all, he was only speaking "Americanese," a language that only the real Americans out in the heartland could understand, not us Commie liberals.

I thought about that, and you know, he was right.  Trump's voters know exactly what he is saying; that it's party time now, time to take out their rage on the niggers and the spics, and the chinks and the kikes too.  That's a message that they can all get behind.  And who cares about a little treason, or even the inevitable depression and wars, when they come with a license to hate?

"...a license to hate."

There is the legacy of the Trump presidency in a nutshell. [emphasis on nut]

I think these investigations may be the beginning of the recovery from the madness which has been deepening for months now. We're finally finding out what happened. The majority of Republicans are so infected they're willing to follow Trump down the rabbit hole to unreality, but not all of them. And when this is over, the ones who drank the kool-aid will find they can't ever wash off the stain.

Trump's voters know exactly what he is saying; that it's party time now, time to take out their rage on the niggers and the spics, and the chinks and the kikes too. That's a message that they can all get behind.

Those who are starting to realize the Republicans want to take away their health insurance and who-knows-what-else are less willing to get behind it. Trump's approval rating is still dropping, down toward the irreducible 25% or so sludge at the bottom of the gene pool that believes in ghosts and faith healing and televangelists and fad diets. Our job is to make sure conservatism is always tarred with the depths they sank to when they embraced Trump's madness to gain power.

Infidel, I just did a short post on what I think is going to be the outcome of these "investigations."

I agree with you completely about what our job is. I just have no faith in our being allowed to do it.

Fake News = "I thought about that, and you know, he was right.  Trump's voters know exactly what he is saying; that it's party time now, time to take out their rage on the niggers and the spics, and the chinks and the kikes too."
It's only been 2 months so the rest of the rant could be Fake News, too.

THE WRATH OF THE AWAKENED SAXON
by Rudyard Kipling


It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late,
With long arrears to make good,
When the Saxon began to hate.

They were not easily moved,
They were icy -- willing to wait
Till every count should be proved,
Ere the Saxon began to hate.

Their voices were even and low.
Their eyes were level and straight.
There was neither sign nor show
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not preached to the crowd.
It was not taught by the state.
No man spoke it aloud
When the Saxon began to hate.

It was not suddently bred.
It will not swiftly abate.
Through the chilled years ahead,
When Time shall count from the date
That the Saxon began to hate.

I agree with almost all of what you said, except for this:

"The only real story in this country since the election of the criminal Reagan..."

I would trace the story back to the criminal Nixon.

Jerry Critter said...

Ed, what the Deplorables don't understand is that even after they take out their hate and anger on those "evil doers" that you list, their lives will still suck.

Jerry Critter said...

Kelly, have we had a republican president since Eisenhower that hasn't been a criminal?

Green Eagle said...

In fact, with the exception of Eisenhower, who was not a real Republican, I would argue that all Republican Presidents since Harding have been corrupt, and their criminal pandering to the rich has produced practically every disaster this country has experienced since 1920. Nixon did begin the movement to pack the Supreme Court with justices who cared about no one but the rich, but it was Reagan, with his crusade for deregulation, which was nothing but a campaign to legalize criminality by rich people, coupled with his efforts to normalize greed as an acceptable motive, that really sent the country down the path to where we are now. Anyway, just my observation.
