Us

Listen, those of us with any sense have known what has been going on both with Trump and the rest of the Republican party for a long time now, but I think it is safe to demand that, with one single thing Trump said in his God-forsaken tirade yesterday, we need never sit still for the pretense that there is a thing decent about him.  And this is the remark, which utterly strips any pretense from what they are really about:

"Okay, what about the alt-left that came charging at us – excuse me – what about the alt-left that came charging at the, as you say, the alt right? Do they have any semblance of guilt?"

Us.  There it is- Trump and the Nazis are "us."  With this unguarded remark, Trump admitted that he is one with the Nazis that inhabit this country.  Let there be no second thoughts about this; this was not a mere slip of the tongue but an ugly view right into his own heart.  We are presided over by a Nazi.  From here out, he is going to act like a Nazi, talk like a Nazi and govern like a Nazi.  Anyone who has a shred of doubt about that is a fool.
Us.  At least if you are Donald Trump.

And virtually no one in his party will turn their back on him, except the couple of miserable self-serving scum like Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, who still think they have a chance of becoming President in 2020 if they tank Trump.  They are all Nazis, just like Trump; the only difference is that they have the sense not to talk about it in public.

He's losing what little control he had over himself. So exciting! Great TV!

Correct! It can't be emphasized often enough that those who support this sub human and the Repuglican party are Nazi's plain and simple.

And any news outlet who casts doubt or questions even the slightest thing on those who fight against this horrid situation are basically Nazi's as well.

There can be no pass given to the likes of these people.

Absolutely nothing never!!

Then there's the WWII vets.

Nice Catch. I missed that pronoun each time I saw a clip.

Green Eagle posts like this one are a big part of the reason I'm happy to see that he has decided to continue the blog.

Well, what I mainly intended to do, other than cut back on the frequency of my posting (how's that working out for you, GE?) was to turn my focus away from the right wing backwaters I have spent so much of my time on. That's not working out so well either. Sorry about that. Anyway, thanks for your comment.

I listened to that clip a number of times. He clearly said "us". Funny, though, a the transcripts seem to pass over that.
