"Not Fooled"


As we’ve learned in this recent examination of the authoritarian mind of the Trumpist true believer, our old buddy Darrell isn’t happy with my answer to finding common ground. (Accepting the FACTS that Trump lost, lied, and tried to criminally steal the 2020 election.) He’s done with allowing me to respond to his questions, lies and accusations. But that didn’t stop him from issuing his latest, um, request, directed at yours truly.

 “Please,Tell Me What I am Thinking, Mr. Leftist”

Gotta hand it to Darrell.

Only an authoritarian true believer in Trump and his Big Lie would solicit an answer to a question, after BANNING the person from responding. Ah, ‘tis the way of the radical Right Trumpists. And why should he listen? He already has ALL the answers and doesn’t bother to understand, let alone consider, the response he already FEELS are commie lies and hate for America and all things good and decent. Demonization is the way of the fascist and Trumpist.

It is expected that a Trumpist true believer will block the answer to his question. They don't want to know what others think or the facts that guide their thinking. They choose to BELEIVE the holy infallible gospel of Donald Trump's election LIES. They "think" they have ALL the answers. I left this response at his blog, but do not expect him to publish it.

“Please, Tell Me What I am Thinking, Mr. Leftist”

Besides knowing YOU think, although BELEIVE is the correct term, that I’m a leftist, pro-Hamas commie who hates America, murders children, loves black criminals, welcomes Mexican killers and rapists, wants to exterminate Jews, and take away your guns and freedom? 

You "think" Trump is being HONEST with his ridiculous, baseless, debunked, and absurd election LIES.

THAT delusional belief is what defines you. It also happens to define neo-Nazis, white supremacists, white Christian nationalists, racist Proud Boys and the rest of Trump's THUGS (whom he PRAISES) who terrorized Congress and beat cops bloody to overturn the election that he LOST.

(He won’t like that answer, will he?)

Darrell "thinks" the "stollen" election was the result of a vast multi-state conspiracy when by ALL facts and evidence it is Trump's and HIS PROJECTION. The FACT is Trump tried to CANCEL the MAJORITY votes of 81 MILLION Americans in his attempt to STEAL the election. This is by definition hating America.

Darrell and Trump are just too clever to be "fooled" by the certified results.

By ALL counts, recounts, certifications, Trump’s DOJ, Trump’s Homeland Security, 60 courts, and multiple audits:



81,283,501 Popular votes

306 Electoral Votes



74,223,975 Popular votes

232 Electoral Votes

A bipartisan majority in both the House and Senate voted Trump GUILTY of insurrection in his second impeachment.

Here are the FACTS and EVIDENCE against your "honest Don the con" accurately presented by "RINO leftist" Liz Cheney (R WY):

"On the morning of January 6, President Donald Trump's intention was to remain president of the United States, despite the lawful outcome of the 2020 election and in violation of his Constitutional obligation to relinquish power. President Trump summoned the mob, assembled the mob and lit the flame of this attack."

“To my Republican colleagues I say there will come a day when Donald Trump is gone but your dishonor will remain.”

"President Trump oversaw a sophisticated seven-part plan to overturn the 2020 election and prevent the transition of presidential power.”

1. President Trump engaged in a massive effort to spread false and fraudulent information to the American public claiming the 2020 election was stolen from him.

2. President Trump corruptly planned to replace the Acting Attorney General, so that the Department of Justice would support his fake election claims.

3. President Trump corruptly pressured Vice President Pence to refuse to count certified electoral votes in violation of the US Constitution and the law.

4. President Trump corruptly pressured state election officials, and state legislators, to change election results.

5. President Trump's legal team and other Trump associates instructed Republicans in multiple states to create false electoral slates and transmit those slates to Congress and the National Archives.

6. President Trump summoned and assembled a violent mob in Washington and directed them to march on the US Capitol.

7. As the violence was underway, President Trump ignored multiple pleas for assistance and failed to take immediate action to stop the violence and instruct his supporters to leave the Capitol.

ALL of this is supported by verifiable FACTS, EVIDENCE, and SWORN testimony from TRUMP'S own people. 

But Darrell "thinks" he and Trump the pathological LIAR know better. So he embraces Trump's Big Lie, AND accuses me, without quoting my words or showing evidence, of wanting to "support the limitation of constitutional freedoms because he assumes that I and other like minded  conservatives are the one (sic) wanting to restrict the democratic process and destroy our nation, while his president has actually been doing this".

A Trumpist true believer cannot comprehend the REALITY that their hero is charged with provable ELECTION INTERFERENCE crimes. So naturally their complete denial of Trump's obvious intentions to DENY my right to have my vote counted and to overturn our election is saddled with PROJECTION that I personally want to "limit constitutional freedoms". 

He can't say which "freedoms" I want to limit, of course. Trumpist true believers emulate their hero's example by regurgitating the lies, false accusations, and blatant projection. Like a cult. They will unite in hatred of everyone who wants to hold their Malevolent Mendacious Messiah accountable under our rule of law.

Finally, Darrell only quoted ONE complete sentence of mine, ignoring the context, of course.

“Believing Trump's lies is what makes Americans neo-Nazis.” 

Damn straight. People have been violent and died for those lies. They stormed the capitol to overturn the election for those lies. Death threats fall like rain due to those lies.

Here Darrell quoted only the last phrase, out of context naturally.

"The media doesn't want to talk about WHY the Middle East is such a mess. They love to do their "both sider" schtick with American politics, but DREAD blaming both sides for Israeli land theft, apartheid, terrorism, the Palestinian Nakba and GAZA holocaust'."

He just wanted to accuse me of blaming ONLY Israelis and supporting their extermination.  

All of these are verifiable FACTS. To this day Israelis are forcing Palestinians from their homes.

Darrell cherry-picked my words from the previous comment thread at my blog, IGNORING these significant remarks for context:

"Until Palestinians are no longer being driven from their homes and terrorism abates, the hate that fuels the conflict will continue to burn. BOTH sides need to evolve past ancient religion/land feuds and learn how to live with each other in mutual respect for rights and justice."


"Netanyahu is doing his best to corrupt their justice system. He is their Trump and needs to go. The same for Hamas, ISIS, al-Qaeda, Trump, and Putin. And while we're at it, the same for the Proud Boys, Oath Keepers, the Klan, and the rest of MAGA America. ALL of them are threats to peace, stability, and democracy."

I'm calling Hamas evil here and saying they need to go, along with a few more evil actors.

For this Darrell accuses me of "championing modern day Nazis hoping to exterminate the Jews that Hitler couldn’t. 

This vile lie is EXACTLY what neo-fascist MAGA lies and hate look like.

If you want to know what I think, read and QUOTE my words instead of taking them out of context.

If you don't understand what I say, ASK for clarification before LYING about me.

But they don't answer questions or listen to answers, do they? Trumpists already "KNOW" everything.

Once again, the way to common ground is accepting the FACT that Trump lost, lied, and illegally tried to steal the election. Many Republicans know this. For that they are hated by Trump's true believers. The MAGA cult refuses to look at the facts, evidence, and indictments. 

Trump's election LIES are gospel to them.

The true believers will never concede that Trump lost or that he lies repeatedly because that would also require them admitting they've been conned. No one ever wants to admit they've been stupid.

Hi, Nan.

Good points, and thanks for looking in. True believers make a cult, and only deprogramming or other psychological shocks can free them from ingrained beliefs. An old friend of mine with Ukrainian roots went MAGA, but came to his senses after Putin invaded Ukraine. He realized Trump praises Putin and would hand Ukraine to him in a heartbeat. Most Trumpists will never have that conversion, though.

I don't like to admit when I've been wrong or duped, either. But it's a fact of life, and one must be mature and open-minded to change a view when presented with facts and verifiable evidence.

As we know, mature and open-minded have never been characteristics of the radical Right. They tend towards lock-step conformity behind their leaders ideology and buy completely into whatever crazed rhetoric they spew.

This groupthink is all they require to convince themselves they are correct on all matters. "Conservatism" is up there with religion in their belief system, often fused together in wedge issues. They never had any respect for our founders' ideal of separation of church and state.

Evangelicals are a small minority, but their Christian nationalism is growing powerful thanks to the anti-democracy flaws in our Constitution. They can defeat the majority's will in the Senate, Electoral College and Supreme Court. Both Trump and Bush Jr. lost the popular vote and won the White House, but they installed a six to three majority to the Right.

The Constitution was set up to give an advantage to wealthy white men over minorities, women, the poor and working class.

It was designed to be amended, but we likely won't see any more pro-democracy amendments. The Right has it locked up, essentially. And why not? The antiquated Constitution is truly rigged in their favor. If our democracy falls, this will be the reason.

I digress. Rant over.
