I was actually looking forward to this second debate between Clinton and Trump. I'm afflicted with a sick sense of humor, what can I say?
Republicans have always wanted an uncompromising one party dictatorship, and will say, and do, anything to get that power.
Now they have their would-be-dictator, and boasting sex offender, threatening his opponent with jail. Take that, you evil wench! He told us she has hate in her heart. She is to blame for EVERYTHING. "Why not", says the Orange Savior.
But worse still, she is a devil. Yesiree. Nothing less.
That display of Goebbels-inspired projection must have sent a tingle up every angry white man's varicose veined leg.
Trump is not an anomaly or "outside" Republican. He exemplifies what that party has become. Their base is angry, racist, authoritarian and wallowing in hate and ignorance.
Paul Krugman correctly notes:
He won the nomination fair and square, chosen by voters who had a pretty good idea of who he was. He had solid establishment support until very late in the game. And his vices are, dare we say, very much in line with his party’s recent tradition.
The civilized world is desperately hoping Americans reject fascism in November. Their concern is understandable. It's not like we haven't re-elected a lying, aristocratic, tax-cuts-for-the-rich, torturer and war monger in the last Republican president.
I never imagined Hillary would look so good, so dignified, so rational, so selfless, so presidential. Compared to the Party of Trump, she exemplifies all of the above.
But life and learning continue. I recently posted some examples of how a Trump voter thinks, but now we must go deeper into the darkness of twisted beliefs.
We have another doozy from Alex Jones, the fear mongering, far Right "patriot" who sells any and all conspiracy theories.
Time to be scared, children. Very scared. I'm talking Bigly, or is it Big League Scared? Whatever.
But this is END-OF-THE-WORLD SCARED!!
So drink the drink, smoke the smoke, or turn to whatever anesthetic that works. For the ultimate dire Prophecy of Lunacy has been uttered, and it proves Dictator Don is the guiding visionary for our time.
You've been warned, fools!
Voting against Trump is not only treason to your white heritage, as the deplorable racist Trump fan David Duke warns, but it will bring about the end of our world. I mean the "Biblical End". That's gotta be even worse!
This calls for another drink. How about some nice refreshing koolade? Say, what's that you're smoking?
