It's Just Possible

This we have learned from our Divider-in-Chief and Angry White Con-servatives:

“Very fine people” marched with the white supremacists, Klan, and Nazis. 

Black Lives Matter is a racist hate group. 

And Black athletes who protest exonerated bad cops and the racist police killings of unarmed Blacks by taking a knee during the anthem are “Sons of bitches”.

Angry White Con-servatives readily believe all of this.

True to form, FOX (R) propaganda feeds their Angry White Con-servative dupes:

Howard Kurtz (Host): The president is clearly tapping into resentment among a lot of sports fans and others toward these multi-million dollar athletes who they think should be playing instead of protesting.

Cheryl Chumley: Well, I just want to take a little bit of disagreement with what you said.

Kurtz: Please.

Chumley: First off, I think it is fairly simple for journalists to look at this issue in a light that isn't covering it just from the day-to-day rapid reaction. First off, Trump didn't call anyone an S.O.B. He came out and said, “What if the coaches called these players S.O.B's?” And I think that --

Kurtz: A fine distinction I think.

Chumley: It is a fine distinction, but it's the difference between truth and not truth. And I think as journalists, we are in the business of reporting truth as we see it down the line.

Trump's exact words were, "Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now'?"

This is how millions of Angry White Con-servatives learn “the difference between truth and not truth”. 

They don’t. 

All they believe is crap, from their C.R.A.P., the Cult of Right-wing Authoritarian Personalities.

Is it any wonder so many AWC's and Trump supporters are duped by “alternative facts”? Could it be they choose to believe what they want to believe? It's just possible.

In what’s left of our free country, demonization of free speech begets more free speech.

The number of NFL players taking a knee multiplied exponentially.

Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell said. "But I've been in the league a little while, and I know the players in this league. There are no SOB's in this league. These are men that work hard, of integrity, they're involved in our communities. They're fathers, they're brothers, and their mothers aren't what he said they were. And our guys, just like anything else, we believe in unity, civility and also the First Amendment rights to peaceful expression and freedom of speech.”

Von Miller, a player for the Denver Broncos, said, “We felt like President Trump's speech was an assault on our most cherished right, freedom of speech."

They Great Divider was delighted by the reactions to his fanning of the flames. The Orange Fuhrer beamed:

"The booing at the NFL football game last night, when the entire Dallas team dropped to its knees, was loudest I have ever heard. Great anger"

"Great anger". That's what feeds Angry White Con-servatives and their racist authoritarian leader. Great anger is how they feel, how they react, and how they thrive. 

Exactly like Angry White Germans in the 1930's.

"One might call Trump's base the white working class. But one of those adjectives is working harder than the other”, writes Ta-Nehisi Coates in “The First White President”.

“The fact of a black president seemed to insult Donald Trump personally. He has made the negation of Barack Obama’s legacy the foundation of his own. According to pre-election polling, if you tallied only white voters, Trump would have defeated Clinton 389 to 81 in the Electoral College. Not every Trump voter is a white supremacist. But every Trump voter felt it acceptable to hand the fate of the country over to one. The American tragedy now being wrought will not end with him.”

Coates summarizes:

“I think if you own a business that attempts to keep black people from renting from you; if you are reported to say that you don’t want black people counting your money; if you say — and not even reported, just come out and say — that someone can’t judge your case because they are Mexican; if your response to the first black president is that they weren’t born in this country, despite all proof; if you say they weren’t smart enough to go to Harvard Law School, and demand to see their grades; if that’s the essence of your entire political identity you might be a white supremacist, it’s just possible.”

If only those athletes marched with the Klan and Nazis, maybe then they’d be praised as “very fine people voicing their free speech” by the White Supremacist Racist-in-Chief.

Here is a great commentary on Trump and the NFL.

Dave Dubya said...

Thanks, Jerry.

More sane voices are finally speaking out.

If Trump wants to divide us, he will get what he wants...for a while. The majority of Americans disagree with him and his agenda. Those chickens will come home to roost.

He is, and will be, the most reviled and dishonored president in our history. I hope the nation grows up and learns from this Great American Tragedy.

Dave Dubya: "If only those athletes marched with the Klan and Nazis, maybe then they’d be praised as 'very fine people voicing their free speech' by the White Supremacist Racist-in-Chief."

Fine summation to an excellent and very truthful portrait of the fascist white supremacist currently holding office.

I said it before the election, and I'll repeat it again: The election of Donald Trump will usher in the advent of a second civil war in this nation -- not excluding the very real possibility of a nuclear war. He's the wrong person for any time.

We're in a serious predicament. The question is, how do we get out of it?

The question is, how do we get out of it?

Racist fascist nationalism is like alcoholism. It takes falling to rock bottom. Slavery led to our first civil war. Trumpism may lead to something even more rending and terrible.

History offers no comfort. Our salvation requires LEARNING from history, yet we ignore it and fall for the same racism, xenophobia and nationalism.

FOX and the CRAP will continue to assure we learn nothing. Con-servatism, Republicans, Murdoch, and their CRAP have snuffed out the promise of equality and social justice in America.

Bottom line.

Maybe LEARNING from history will show that what the media and polls say are far from the TRUTH!

Just look at how the red carpet was rolled out to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for Queen Hillary leading up to November 8th! There was no way Donald Trump could win said the media and polls. The lies put forth by the media and polls has led to an endless stream of tears and excuses by the nanny state socialists.

Trump is right:
"The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented but that socialism has been faithfully implemented."

Now the facts are showing that Obama and his stasi like administration were actually phone tapping Trump Towers! THIS TRULY IS WORSE THAN WATERGATE! AMIRITE?

Dave Dubya said...


Thanks, but you haven't told us what you have learned from history.

What "red carpet"?

What lies? Polls are polls and predictions are predictions. Neither are history, nor reporting of factual stories.

What has Venezuela to do with the topic?

Can you show us proof that Obama ordered "Trump Tower" wiretapped? No, you can't, because he didn't.

You lied. Just like Trump, so that must comfort you, being a loyal follower of Dear Leader.

It was the Russian stooge and criminal Manifort, not Trump who was tapped by order of a FISA court. Do you remember Bush expanded FISA? Or is that too much history for you?

Trump approved of collusion with Russia by his treasonous invitation for them to hack his Democratic opposition. You are going to be so angry when Trump is run out of office by his own crimes and lies. I bet he quits just like Palin the Quitter in Lipstick.

But don't feel bad. Putin loves his American stooges. So does Trump. But he'd dump on you in a New York minute if you disagreed with him, wouldn't he?

But that would never happen. Loyal authoritarian followers always submit to their Dear Leader, amirite?
