The Party of Trump

The loser of the presidential election tweeted: “I WON THE ELECTION!”

No, he didn’t. This is just another fascist Big Lie. 

This deluge of extremist lies started decades ago with angry accusations of "liberal media", that soon morphed into, "Liberals hate America" and racist birtherism.

And speaking of jackboot-style fascism, we recall “Second Amendment remedies” were invoked by Republicans when Obama was president.

Then came the rallies, with hateful chants of, "Lock her up!"

In 2016 Trump suggested,"Second Amendment people" could "do" something about Hillary Clinton.

Last year Trump boasted, "I can tell you I have the support of the police, the support of the military, the support of the Bikers for Trump – I have the tough people, but they don’t play it tough — until they go to a certain point, and then it would be very bad, very bad."

After Trump tweeted, “LIBERATE MICHIGAN”, MAGA terrorists plotted to kidnap and kill the governor of Michigan.

Sunday night, in response to Governor Whitmer’s new covid safety protocols, Trump’s pandemic “advisor” Scott Atlas tweeted: “The only way this stops is if people rise up. You get what you accept. #FreedomMatters #StepUp” 

Dr. Mengele wasn't the last evil medical doctor. 

They are now reptilian Republicans.

Let's be clear. All of these Republicans are instigating terrorism, and party leadership will not condemn these remarks.

The term Stochastic Terrorism best describes the far Right/Republican incitement of political violence:

Stochastic Terrorism was first noted here: 1. The use of mass communication to incite random actors to carry out violent or terrorist acts that are statistically predictable but individually unpredictable. 2. Remote-control murder by lone wolf.

And says Stochastic Terrorism is: the public demonization of a person or group resulting in the incitement of a violent act, which is statistically probable but whose specifics cannot be predicted:The lone-wolf attack was apparently influenced by the rhetoric of stochastic terrorism.

Lest anyone assume I’m exaggerating the threat of Trump’s stochastic terrorism, ABC News found 54 cases invoking Trump in connection with violence, threats, and alleged assaults.

This is the American Right today.

The Party of Trump:


No bar too low.

No lie too big.

No heart too cold.

No mind too small.

No hate too intense.


Every elected Republican is an enemy of truth, democracy and equality. Fascism is the only possible endgame behind their authoritarian contempt for these values.

It was a tremendous tragedy when Al Gore had the presidency stolen from him. It set the stage for a lingering calamity that exists to this day. The amount of misery, death and suffering to come about because of his loss is incalculable.

After debating Conservatives for more than 20 years I have come to the conclusion that most are like the Orcs in the movies. They are never honest about it but they revel in being evil and are masters of self deception. But unlike in the movies they are not going away and will be with us for a very long time.

Clinton's corporatist triangulation and the election of 2000 mark the end of the republic. 9-11 sealed the deal. As I was watching the towers fall on TV, I envisioned the Constitution going down in flames with them.

All it took was for the far Right to convince enough rubes that capitalism, nationalism and militarism are expressions of Christianity, and the rich deserve to run the show.

With talk radio and FOX(R) the propaganda took hold. Journalism was successfully demonized. The great con in conservatism was pulled off. A cult was born.

Just like that, Americans converted from Classic Jesus to Republican Jesus. That set things up for Reagan, Cheney and Trump to roll out their legacy of greed, cruelty, torture, war, and racism, all wrapped up in God and patriotism.
