American Axis Of Evil


Just this past week in Trump America we’ve had three white nationalist MAGA nut terrorist attacks in our country. Is it just a coincidence the president has just recently proclaimed himself a "nationalist"? 

A racist in Kentucky shot down and murdered innocent Black Americans. A MAGA hat wearing Trump fanatic sent bombs to the people and press his leader named as enemies. 

Trump, FOX(R) and Limbaugh are deflecting blame to the targets, and therefore abetting the terrorist. 

Today a white nationalist terrorist gunned down his victims in a synagogue. 

All in just one week in America. This should shake us to a certain realization.

Make no mistake. This trend of domestic terrorism is the fetid fruit of Trump’s white nationalism, unleashed upon what is fast becoming a terminally diseased democratic republic.

Trump didn’t commit these crimes, but there is no doubt he inspired them. And he had help.

The Party of Trump continues in its failure to denounce the hate from their leader. They are culpable.

FOX(R) and Limbaugh did their best to shield the MAGA bomber’s intent and blame it on Democrats, or the hated “Left”. They are also culpable.

This is the true face of the new American white nationalist con-servatism. And make no mistake, this far Right brand of conservatism was built by the Republican Party and their propaganda network.

Now Trump, the Party of Trump, and their voices of hate at FOX and talk radio are inspiring and abetting a wave of far Right terrorism. 

The MAGA MOB is the real enemy of the people.

They are the American Axis of Evil

This is what defenders of justice, human decency, and reason are up against. It is imperative that good Americans of conscience understand the struggle for freedom, equality and democracy will never end.

This coming election is when Americans accept or reject white nationalism. We’ll find out if they finally see the dark cloud of evil that has shrouded the land. Will we the people understand this MOB of white nationalist domestic terrorists, criminals, and traitors are the most dangerous threat against our democracy?

Look at the Republicans' gerrymandering and extensive campaign of minority voter suppression. Look at what they are doing to voters and voting machines in Georgia. This is their agenda for the nation. Speak out. Call out, and condemn, the hate. 

And vote.

Here is the sad truth. If Democrats take the House, the MAGAt MOB will step up their aggression and violence in their war on equality and democracy.

Count on it. 

Even if we lose, our conscience is clear, and guides us in the certainty that our cause is just.

Stay strong. Get active. Call out the white nationalist American Axis of Evil for what it is.

Likely true. But if the Democrats don't take the House, the knuckle-dragging Deliverance mutants will still commit aggression and violence. After all, the recent violence you mention was committed while Republicans had control of the whole government.

Trumpanzees either lash out in rage when they lose or lash out with the arrogant cruelty of the bully who feels immune to consequences. Either way, they lash out.

Infidel,

Good point. Hateful white conservatives are angry all the time.

Their hate has been indoctrinated and validated for decades by the powerful enemies of democracy, FOX(R) and the Republican Party. The sore losers are now sore winners, because they believe they are the real victims.

That's how fascism happens. All they need are scapegoats to accuse and blame. (That would be all the rest of us.)

And this fascism is growing before our eyes. We are there. I'm not confident they will be defeated, because they have the Party of Trump, a vast propaganda network, and the immense power of wealth behind them.

As I keep repeating, the struggle for democracy never ends. And the enemy is within. This is the message we need to send.

Indeed, and it has been mostly invisible and laying dormant for decades. It's now making itself very apparent and open.

It's exactly how it "blossomed" in the early stages of Hitler's ascendancy and rise to power in the mid-1930s of Germany. There's little difference.

What else can be expected from a president who declares himself a nationalist during the same week explosives are mailed to high-level democrats and others critical of his actions and rhetoric?...and a white supremacist murders worshipers at a Jewish synagogue in Pittsburgh?

Fascism is on the rise in America. It has taken a foothold and will not relent without a fight.

Resist. It's our only option.

A THIRD bomb threat to CNN after Trump doubles down on "enemy of the people" hate rhetoric.

Republican Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy posted this tweet about three Jews AFTER a bomb was sent to Soros' house.

“We cannot let Soros, Steyer, and Bloomberg to BUY this election”.

Jews will not replace him, amirite?

TB3 said...

The marketplace of ideas, right?

U.P. Tim said...

One of Rush Limbaugh's response to the bombings was the right doesn't do these types of things, apparently he has forgotten about the killing of an abortion Dr., abortion clinic bombings and Oklahoma City. I like to refer to the right as "Republicon ISIS". I let my Republicon representative know today that we are not the angry mob, it's them. Trump's incendiary rhetoric has empowered the MAGAt MOB and their violence, which may get worse.

Jefferson's Guardian said...

"Trump's incendiary rhetoric has empowered the MAGAt MOB and their violence, which may get worse." ~~ U.P.Tim

It's a certainty. The manic far-right has been granted full license from the mobster-in-chief to commit the most atrocious acts of violence against those who've been adversaries or seek to bring him to justice.

Fascism is alive and well in America, and it's going to get worse.

Jefferson's Guardian said...

All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Above is the very first clause to the 14th Amendment, which is reported to be a target of the mobster-in-chief and to be nullified in the next few days by executive order.

I wonder how many generations this will entail? One? Two? How many? Will only original colonist ancestry define American citizenship? If not, how will it be defined?

In-your-face fascism, at its worst.

"We're the only country in the world (A LIE) where a person comes in, has a baby, and the baby is essentially a citizen of the United States for 85 years with all of those benefits. It's ridiculous. It's ridiculous. And it has to end”, the White Nationalist whined.

"It was always told to me that you needed a constitutional amendment. Guess what? You don't. You can definitely do it with an act of Congress. But now they're saying I can do it just with an executive order... it's in the process. It'll happen."

This will eventually lead to “only land owners, wealthy elites and corporations” can be real citizens.

Why? Because "It was always told to me" and "Now they're saying I can do it".

I am sitting here waiting for the tsunami of outrage over Executive Overreach via Executive Order. MM? T.Paine? ...

Anytime now.

Annnny time now...

Wait, what? Not coming? A President wants to give legal rights to a minority population in Federal Employment and we've fallen into Autocratic rule but a different President wants to outright subvert the Constitution outside of the Constitutional Process with the same Executive Order mechanism and it's, what did Lindsey Graham say? Finally a President is willing to take on an absurd policy...?

Alright, fine. Revel in hypocrisy. I look forward to a President in the future using this as precedent for unilaterally offering to modify Amendments. Maybe the 2nd.

Jerry said...

Lets hope Democrats can win majority next week, but the polls don't show that.

What we have to admit is half the American voters support racist, bigoted politicians and have for decades. So it's not unreal to say that's the kind of people we are.

Take the Steven King race in Iowa. As of today King has a one point lead. The closest race he has ever had and he has had a Congressional seat for years, usually winning by a lot. King has been a white supremacist, bigot for ever and it has never been a secret. So Iowans purposefully have been electing a hate filled bigot for years.

Trump made it perfectly clear what kind of hate filled, woman hating bigot he was during the primaries. He was the leader of the Birther movement for years, which was proven nothing but a lie. Yet he won enough votes to win the presidency.

You can argue the Electoral College, the Russian interference, vote suppression, but almost half the voters voted for Trump the bigot, hater. That's who they wanted for their president. It was no secret that he was a hate filled bigot when they voted for him.

For those who say this country is a majority Democratic country, the facts and votes are not on your side. The Republicans have not only had majority in Washington D.C., but in most States, which is how they got the gerrymander edge.

As a liberal, it would seem to me that these haters should be losing by a lot, but it's very close about 50/50.

I live in a bigoted, hate filled country. That's just a fact, and it's represented by their votes.

Republicans and their destroy America hate filled legislation have been in the White, or Congressional majority for decades, or both. This is not a fad, or a new problem. It is who we are.

Dave Dubya said...

Tim,
I hate to say it, but I'd bet on the violence getting worse, no matter who wins in this election. Their hate will grow as long as it is fed by the American Axis of Evil.

Jerry,

When fascism comes to America it will be voted in by conservative white people.

And it is happening. The US was built upon noble ideas like consent of the governed, but also on its original sin of slavery. Accommodations to Southern states such as an electoral college, and over-representation for small states in the Senate, along with the inherent racism of slavery became poison pills to our democracy. While progress has been made, we have taken too long to evolve past racism.

The cruelty behind the fact is White Nationalism doesn't even need a majority to seize power.

Americans have also proven this:

NOT voting IS voting. They will soon learn not voting IS voting for the Party of Trump. Not voting IS voting for dirtier air and water. Not voting IS voting accelerated global warming. Not voting IS voting for cutting or ending social security and medicare. Not voting IS voting for more tax cuts for the rich. NOT voting IS voting to end democracy.

Jerry said...

So you are saying the people who are not voting are the Democrats which would rid our government of these bigots? If they voted we would not have these bigots in our politics? I disagree.

Dave Dubya said...

Jerry,

We will always have bigots in politics.

I'm just saying the fewer the voters, the less democracy we have, and the more the Right wins.

They know this.

"I don't want everybody to vote. Elections are not won by a majority of people, they never have been from the beginning of our country and they are not now. As a matter of fact, our leverage in the elections quite candidly goes up as the voting populace goes down." Heritage Foundation co-founder Paul Weyrich

Jerry said...

Elections are the poll of the people. If only 60% of those eligible to vote, vote, that is still a good poll and evidence of how the non voters would vote, if they voted.
If we had a 100% voter turnout I would hope the liberals would beat the conservatives, but given voter history (especially in the last 40 years) I have no confidence the liberals would win and I no longer believe this is a majority liberal country.
Given the hate driven Republicans and their destructive policies, why is this liberal missing vote not motivated to vote? Are they really out there and if now is not the time for them to vote, when will that time come?

Dave Dubya said...

Jerry,
It's mildly reassuring that most of us are not Trumpists. Elections are polls of voters, not the general public. Many who wish to vote cannot. Many more will be denied their right to vote this time as well.

Apathy and ignorance have been fueled for decades and still Hillary got 3 million more votes. Most Americans, even conservatives, support Social Security, Medicare, unemployment compensation and most of the liberal agenda. But the force of economic elites and cultural and racial division are powerful. Inflating resentments, fear, anger and hate gets a lot of dupes voting against what they really want and need.

The game is rigged against the majority.

I share your frustration. Part of me wants to just say, "You asked for it, idiots".

I think if voting was universal, with hard copy ballots, and easily accessible for all citizens, we wouldn't have fallen this far.

That's really my point.

Bill H said...

As we have all witnessed over the last week, hate speech has it's tragic outcomes. I only suspect things will get worse as Trump carries on with his rallies, stirring up even more hate and sending even more authoritarian-worshipping people over the brink. It reminds me of exactly what I read about the history of Nazi Germany when I was a kid in school. Trump is dead set on dividing our nation and starting a revolution to fulfill Putin's wishes of complete dominance of the US.

Dave Dubya said...

Bill,
It reminds me of exactly what I read about the history of Nazi Germany...

Me too. And for comparison, the Tea Party racist idiots thought Obamacare was a tyranny of Socialist/Commie/Nazi proportions.

It's obvious SOMEONE isn't learning from history...or worse, they just WANT to repeat it.

Three days later and "Mr. Constitution" hasn't objected, once, and of course there will never be a response criticizing the mobster-in-chief from Timmy Trueblood.

They're both hypocrites when claiming observance to the U.S. Constitution.

By the way, Timmy, if you're listening, I made a sizable contribution recently to the Beto O'Rourke Senate campaign against Lyin' Ted. (It's why I was in Texas. You were just the sideshow...freak show, actually. Where were you?...couldn't break away from your KKKoward meet-up?)

Anyway, Timmy, you better get your checkbook out. My man's closing.

Jefferson's Guardian said...

Dave, your response to Jerry was spot-on, and I hope, Jerry, Dave's explanation shelved any doubts about the feelings and political stances of the vast number of Americans.

Liberalism is still out there - it's just been wounded, tragically, over decades by the power, money and media influence of the presiding corporate state.

It's still out there. Marginalized, yes, but still there.

Let's see whether the sleeping giant awakens next Tuesday. If not, or it can't, I'm afraid the death knell will have rung for democracy's last stand.

Dave Dubya said...

The latest evil, hate, and fear employed by The American Axis of Evil.

The Washington Post reports:

Trump’s new immigration ad was panned as racist. Turns out it was also based on a falsehood.

Luis Bracamontes was deported and returned under President George W. Bush. He was also released by Joe Arpaio's office years before killing two deputies.


Time to blame Soros, Dems, and the libs, amirite?

All who support and appease the Party of Trump are wittingly or unwittingly siding with evil. Period.

As long as Trump hates liberals, they are his minions.

“White” nationalist is the language used by racists.

Ed,

You don't say. We would love to learn more of the "language used by racists". You sound like an expert.




Jefferson's Guardian said...

"Ed" sounds like an expert, doesn't he? ;-)

Gee, I wonder what Ed thinks Trump calls racists?

I'll give him some help with this. He'll say it's his base.

Gee, I wonder what Ed thinks Trump calls racists?

We know they are "very fine people".

As of 2018 there are 33 Republicans, 16 Democrats, and 1 Independent holding the office of governor in the states. There are 2 Democrats, 1 Independent and 2 Republicans (one is also a member of the New Progressive Party) as governor of United States Territories and Mayor of the District of Columbia.

At present, Republicans control 67 of the 99, and control both chambers in 32 states. Democrats control 32 chambers, and both chambers in 14 states. Only four states have divided control of their legislatures.

That's a 2 to 1 edge in both Governors and control of State Houses by Republicans.
Of course, our president is a Republican.
The U.S. Senate is majority Republican.
The U.S. House is majority Republican.
The U.S. Supreme Court is majority Republican.

The liberal claim that this country is a majority liberal/Democratic country is a false fact fantasy.

Except for president and the Supreme Court the Republicans have held these majorities for quite a few years.

The Republicans won over 60 seats in the House in the 2010 midterm election. The Democrats need only win less than a third of that many seats in 2018 to gain majority in the House and only two seats in the Senate.

All these majorities were not gained by voter suppression.

The Democrats will not regain majority in the State Houses, or Governorship's.

The next time voting districts are mapped (2021) Democrats will be far short of the majority needed to have any influence on that process.

The Republicans will have the gerrymander edge for years to come.

Dave Dubya said...

Anonymous,

Thank you for some correct stats. I do not dispute them. However, your conclusions remain questionable. The Dems might just take the House, despite all the Republican voter suppression.

The liberal claim that this country is a majority liberal/Democratic country is a false fact fantasy.

It is rooted in reality.

Poll after poll has shown majorities of American support the essential Democratic/progressive agenda. MOST Americans want to keep Social Security, Medicare, food stamps and other public safety nets. They want public education. MOST Americans want a better health care system than one dictated by insurance companies.

MOST Americans want to regulate polluters and Wall Street.

All of these issues are opposed by Republicans. Democracy itself is opposed by Republicans because when elections are fair, they lose more. In the last SEVEN presidential elections, the Republican won the most votes only ONCE.

This inescapable fact is clear. The Supreme Court is not under Republican dominance by consent of the governed. Three million more Americans voted for Hillary. The Slave States poisoned our democracy with an electoral college, thereby overruling the will of the majority on who they wanted in the presidency and Supreme Court.

These are facts.

Thank you for noting the gerrymandering, another front in the Republicans’ war on democracy and suppression of the consent of the governed. Another fact is In 2012, House Democrats won about 1 million more votes nationwide than Republicans, but that wasn't enough to put them anywhere near retaking the chamber. Democracy lost.

To be conservative and Republican is to be against democracy, and against the founders’ ideal of consent of the governed.

Finally, an admittance of the GOP's preoccupation with destroying democracy through suppressed, manipulated and stolen elections.

I'm sure you're very proud to have helped bring fascism to America.

Not in Michigan. By ballot, we the people have embraced the founders' ideal of consent of the governed.

No more partisan gerrymandering. This defeat for Republicans is a victory for democracy.

I say "Amen" to Props 1,2 and 3. The voters did see some light at the end of the very dark tunnel yesterday. I think we have a very capable woman to be our next governor also. Bill Schuette would have been a complete disaster for the State.

Tim,
True democracy in action. The people are usually way ahead, and more progressive, than our politicians. The more democracy we have, the more freedom. The more freedom we have, the more equality.
