And That About Sums It Up

Well, well, well … after all the hoopla, all the ranting and raving by Trump and Co., the accusations against both the press and the democrats, it turns out that Trump hadn’t a clue what he was talking about, and neither did Fox News or any of the other fools who jumped in with off-the-wall conspiracy theories.  What a surprise, eh?  Turns out the bomb-maker-sender was a nutcase; a die-hard supporter of Trump who apparently thought the best way to show his love for ol’ Donnie-boy was to try to take out his ‘enemies’.

Of course, Donnie & friends immediately issued public apologies to those of us they accused of being the perpetrators, right?  HAH … what fantasy world am I living in?  As a matter of fact, those who have been referring to the bombs as a ‘false flag operation’ and blaming democrats all week long, are still blaming democrats.  FBI Director Christopher Wray clearly stated that the bombs were not ‘hoax devices’, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions said that the accused, 56-year-old Cesar Sayoc, appears to be a Trump-supporting partisan with Trump stickers and anti-democrat imagery plastered over most every square inch of his van.  And still … the trumpeters play their ugly, disgusting tune.

First, Trump’s reaction to the news that it was one of his own who attempted murder:

“Republicans are doing so well in early voting, and at the polls, and now this “Bomb” stuff happens and the momentum greatly slows – news not talking politics. Very unfortunate, what is going on. Republicans, go out and vote!”

Hey, jerkface – the news is supposed to report the news! The attempted murder of 14 people, including a former president and a former Secretary of State is far more relevant than your damn campaign rallies.  14 lives being put in danger is NEWS.  “This bomb stuff”???  What do you mean by that?  People’s lives, bucko … people’s lives! Go back to your bowl of Cheerios and leave the news to the adults, please.

“I did not see my face on the van. I heard he was a person that preferred me over others, but I did not see that.”

What. A. Jerk.

Now let’s see what some of those conservative pundits have to say …

“Two weeks out, a bunch of bombs start showing up in places that the media can then say that they are being received by ‘Trump targets?’ I’m sorry. I didn’t fall off the turnip truck ever, and certainly not yesterday, and the world of October Surprises coupled with all the other realities I just exposed, and I think it only makes sense to be suspicious and demanding of proof for whatever we’re gonna be told.” – Rush Limbaugh

“So many things about this Cesar guy do not add up. If he is #MAGA, why would he send these fake ‘bombs’ to Democrat Congressional Leaders 2 weeks before the midterms and disrupt our winning momentum? It makes no sense. That means there is something else here. This guy Cesar is looking like a “sleeper” implanted by the Democrats just for such an occasion as this.  I mean, c’mon, that van is ridiculous.” – Bill Mitchell, conservative radio host

“Michael, your description yesterday of the guy they’d pin (maga hat, confed flag,etc) sounds right on the money💰 Only thing you didn’t envision was a van slathered in pro-Trump images. Once again you were correct!  MAN AND VAN LOOK LIKE CREATED BY HOLLYWOOD.” – Michael Savage, conservative radio host, apparently speaking to himself

“From the Haymarket riot to the Unabomber, bombs are a liberal tactic.” – Ann Coulter, bitch extraordinaire.

And then this morning, a man walks into a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and starts shooting, saying, “All Jews must die!”.  Donald Trump has drawn the deplorables out from under their rocks just as effectively as salt draws the liquid out of an onion.  Eleven are left dead after the synagogue shooting, six others injured, including four police officers.  And the head joker residing in the White House says …

“If they had protection inside, the results would have been far better.”

Oh yes, Donnie-boy … the way to solve a gun problem is add more guns to the problem.  Let’s just arm every man, woman, child and service dog in the United States and see just how quickly we can wipe our nation off the map?

Okay, so in the past 6 days we have had 14 bombs mailed to people who had spoken against Trump and his policies, and 11 people have been murdered by an anti-Semite, Robert Bowers, who apparently felt empowered to take lives of people he didn’t agree with.  Sure, these people existed before Trump and they were haters and bigots before Trump.  But they didn’t crawl out from under their rocks until Trump came along and gave them his blessing to act upon their bigotry.  When the so-called president calls Mexicans, rapists, when he lies about terrorism time and time again, when he claims that all Muslims are terrorists, and yet proclaims white supremacists and Nazis to be ‘fine people’, it is a license to kill just as surely as if it were written on parchment. ADLIt will happen again, probably next week.  There will be another school shooting before the end of the year.  People will die at the hands of bigoted fools.  The republican party calls itself the ‘pro-life’ party, but you have to wonder, don’t you?  Just exactly whose life are they pro?

I read the following by John Pavlovitz this morning …

“The only reason left to support this President, is that he reflects your hateful heart; he shares your contempt of people of color, your hostility toward outsiders, your toxic misogyny, your blind bigotry, your feeling of supremacy.”

And that, folks, about sums it up.

  1. Jill, well done. Why it is true the seeds of divsiveness have been cultivated and domestic hate groups have been around for some time before the age of Trump, the man in the White House won by stoking the division playing on fears and allowing the domestic hate groups to crawl out from under the rocks into main stream society. It is not ironic the David Duke thanked Trump for his Charlottesville remarks.

    Trump represents our worst instincts by demonizing, lying and condoning violence. He celebrated a candidate for body slamming a reporter the same day the world was condemning the dismembering of a reporter. Further, when confronted with his culpability, he summons his inner child to avoid accountability and responsibility. What would Jesus do? Very little of what this man does.

    It is true that it is unfair to brand Trump supporters as racist. But, is also true to say that white supremacists support Trump.

    Until he decides he is the President of the United States, he will continue perpetuating our worst instincts. Any so called journalists who do not see this man for what he is are not or are choosing not to pay attention. Keith

    • Oh, I think these so-called “journalistsl” are paying attention all to well. They are fake reporters, not caring about truth, or anything else. They move their lips, and lies automatically come out. They are actors, looking for ratings. Higher ratings mean more advertising revenues mean higher salaries. How is not important, why is to get rich, where is off the backs of white LGBTQA hating Christians, what is lying, who is non-caring humans. Money rules, truth drools. Yay, Trump!
      And the beat goes on… Until it doesn’t…

    • Thanks Keith! Trump is instilling fear in people where there needs be none, and stoking those fears to gain control of the masses. Meanwhile, the bigots are crawling out and adding more fuel to the fire by acting on the fear Trump has encouraged. And pretty soon, if this keeps up, none of us will be safe. Hitler told the Germans how WWI was the fault of the Jews, and therefore the Jews must be exterminated. Trump is telling the American people that basically everyone who is ‘other’ is the enemy, out to ruin their country, and they are taking matters into their own hands. Meanwhile, I’m betting that Trump was rubbing his hands together with a smile on his face, for these people are playing right into his hands. It is no longer just funny … it is dangerous.

      • Jill, Trump will only respond to embarassing press that points where he is lying, bullying, demeaning or at fault. He had made the existing divisiveness worse. I am tired of every issue having to be contentious. That is his modus operandi – find a wedge issue and divide.

        When a GOP Congressional candidate said he is the most truthful President as he is doing what he is saying, I stopped him and said but what if he says was based on a lie. First off he is the most untruthful President even moreso than Richard Nixon, who was a crook. Second, my concern was his doing what he said. Keith

        • You are right … his M.O. is to find a sore spot and keep poking it, divide and conquer, except that he isn’t actually conquering anything … yet. Wow … I can’t believe somebody actually had the audacity to claim Trump is the most truthful president ever. He wouldn’t know the truth if it whacked him upside the head! Like you, I’m tired of all the contentiousness … I think we all are, and maybe that’s his goal, to wear us down.

    • Thank you, Suzanne! They are coming out from under the rocks, and with the nearly unlimited availability of guns, semi-automatics and whatever other weapons exist in this nation, the dangers are very real. We are only seeing the tip of the iceberg thus far, I fear.

  2. Hey Kiddo, don’t pull any punches, say it as you see it. Whew,I did I enjoy that. You placed the blame squarely on the old pouting fathead. Of course this is all his fault and he can’t backpedal now.He brought the wee beastie called hate out of it’s cave and if it does disrupt the elections for the Republicans it’s his fault and you’ll find it at his feet while he strokes it’s head.Maybe some of his ‘Good People’ can don their sheets and go round letting people know hate is bad and the Democrats should have kept it caged..

    • Thanks David! I feared you might tell me I got a bit carried away, and I did, but I was so enraged … I just had to say what I said. I truly dread what will happen over the coming 8 days before the election, and on the day itself, for I believe we have only seen the tip of the iceberg.

    • Sometimes it becomes all-consuming, too much to absorb. That’s when people tell us to take a break from it, but that’s hard to do, for this is our home and these are our lives. But know that I understand what you are saying … these are not easy times.
