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. It 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.
