The cult of racism.

Image result for MAGA racist imagesThe following article by Kathleen Parker is the best I have read to date about Mr. trump escalating his racism and the republicans being willing cheerleaders and defenders.  

"Going out on a limb here: President Trump is a racist. And a sexist. And a xenophobic nationalist. Among other things.

Not to name call or anything.

And all of those observable facts seem to sit quite well with his base of supporters, most Republicans in Congress and, apparently, with the evangelical Christian community whose members have ceded the floor to crickets.

Not even the chilling moment at Trump’s Wednesday rally in North Carolina  when the crowd chanted “Send her back!” can apparently budge them from their repose. The chanters were referring, of course, to Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), one of the four women of color known as “the Squad.” And the crowd’s clarion Trumpeter was the president himself, who, though he didn’t start the chant, certainly seemed to enjoy it.

His expression during the 13 seconds that he allowed the chant to reach its desired pitch was most chilling of all. His jutting jaw, his down-the-nose gaze, his seeming serenity in the eye of a storm — all spoke louder than the metronomic mass surrounding him.

The king was pleased.

Trump allowed ‘Send her back!’ chants for 13 seconds.

That moment encapsulated Trump’s reelection strategy and reminded everyone of three years ago, when retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn led the 2016 Republican National Convention in a similar chant aimed at Hillary Clinton: “Lock her up!” (We’ll resist the temptation to remark on the three-syllable limit when Republicans think aloud.)

In the language of “Criminal Minds,” Trump is escalating. Lock her up. Send her back. What’s next? One shudders to wonder.

This recent episode can be dissected in several ways. First, the four women composing the Squad are of color. They are minority women, in other words, by virtue of race or ethnicity but also by religion. (Two are Muslim.) Women aren’t a voting minority, or even a numerical minority, but they retain minority status in most measurable ways, from income to political power.
Thus, the Trumpeter was able to offend pretty much everyone group-wise — other than, of course, white males. There the GOP goes again.

Discussions the past few days about Trump’s strategy or purpose have been clarifying if not precisely revelatory. Some have said it isn’t necessarily racist to call out people who just happen to be of color. Others say, no, no, no, Trump was merely saying that these women, who, indeed, have said outrageous and offensive things (to some), ought to either get right with America (meaning white people) or skedaddle.

How did he put it: “If they don’t love it, tell ’em to leave it.”

This was Trump’s attempt at clarifying the tweets that started this whole saga, basically that the four representatives should go back to their horrible, filthy, corrupt countries, by which, one presumes, he meant some of those “shithole” countries he identified in 2018. Of course, the only woman not born in the United States is Omar, who came here more than 20 years ago as a refugee from Somalia.

To many Trump supporters, his “shithole” comment, which Trump denied saying though he admitted to using “tough” language, was likely viewed as an off-the-cuff remark not intended for public consumption. That’s fine to a point. We all say things privately that we wouldn’t dare utter elsewhere. However, what comes out of one’s mouth in private is what is inside one’s head, no matter who doesn’t hear it.

This is who Trump is. This, and I quote, is what he thinks: Nigerians will never “go back to their huts” after setting foot in the United States; Africa sends its “worst of the worst” to the United States; Haitian immigrants “all have AIDS.”

These cruel remarks are easily disproved. Nigerian Americans can boast a median income that exceeds the U.S. average. Forty-three percent of immigrants from African countries have at least a bachelor’s degree, compared with only 33 percent of all Americans.

The larger point, however, is that Trump obviously feels comfortable dismissing people of color as primitive, diseased and worse. Attributing stereotypical, denigrating characteristics to a group of people belonging to a particular race is the definition of racism. That the four women just happen to be of color is more than a blip precisely because of Trump’s consistent, default bigotry.

Republicans and evangelical Christians who fail to condemn this president’s use of the pulpit to preach down (not up), to employ and incite abusive language, to essentially put a target on a duly elected congresswoman’s back — can be presumed to concur and, therefore, to be complicit in whatever further degradation or violence follows.

That’s the plain and awful truth." [Source]

She makes some great points. But I also have to ask: What does Mr. trump have over all these supposedly powerful republican politicians ( I see you Mitt, Lindsey, and Marco) that they would put a stain on their legacy and embarrass themselves and their families by joining this cult?

It has been suggested that Trump has some dirt on some of these prominent Republican politicians to make them so subservient to him. The dramatic about-face from Lindsey Graham, who transformed from loud Never Trumper to groveling Trump lackey in the blink of an eye, made people surmise that he must have been blackmailed.

But truthfully, for most of these GOP legislators and other functionaries, the answer is simpler: They are afraid of Trump’s base. They have no principles and they don’t want to get “primaried” by the angry redneck hordes you see at Trump rallies on TV. All they care about is their jobs, not the welfare of the country.

They’re self-serving sacks of shit. There really isn’t any more to it than that.

Watch the video, he "allowed" the chant until it began to die down, like he has with every other fucking chant at every one of his hate rallies since he found out he could get the morons there to chant.

What Fergus has on those Republican officeholders is his 90% approval rating among ordinary Republicans.

All of his despicable behavior?

That's what they love. That's what they've been yearning for all of these years when they've been pulled between the opposing forces of the propaganda they consume and the maintenance doses of racism doled out to them by the Republicans they vote for.

Fergus just noticed that they really wanted a straight geeze of the pure, uncut, product so bad that they'd do almost anything for it.

Anything, like betraying their religion, ditching human decency, and supporting the destruction of their government. And wearing those stupid, stupid, made in China hats on their stupid, stupid, heads, like the mark of the retarded beast.

Which kinda brings the problem into focus: It's not Fergus. Not really. He's just the opportunistic infection allowed in by the retrovirus of the propaganda.

If not for decades of Fox News and hate radio, and the wingnut propaganda industrial complex (see also: Regnery Publishing) the Republican base's vestigial capacity to reason would kick in like the immune system to harmful lies it's supposed to be and only a very small number of particularly susceptible individuals would be drawn into the cult of lies, raw power, and treason.

But thanks to all of those years and all of that money the Republican base is so addicted to the propaganda that they need it to function, and like any garden variety addict, will ignore the disintegration of their lives and families and communities to sustain access to their next lie.

And since making a series of lies all agree with one another is close to impossible, they have become infinitely reprogrammable so that today's lie can completely contradict yesterday's lie and it won't bother them a bit.

That's why trying to reason with them won't work. Your well reasoned argument threatens something far too important to them to be allowed consideration, even when it's denial actively harms them, like poor Republicans who oppose expanding Medicaid who are actually dying from lack of access to healthcare (around ten thousand of them so far).

As tempting as it is to blame the Pig People for their destructive behavior, and say that it's always their decision to turn on Fox, or hate radio, that misunderstands the nature of addiction. And of the first amendment.

No, the only approach to mitigating the societal damage they are perpetrating is to confine it electorally, and represent them in the government, as is their right under the constitution, in proportion to their actual numbers, which are a shrinking minority.

There is no guarantee that it will save the republic, but it's the tool we were given to do so, and with Franklin's admonition "if you can keep it."

People who oppose Trump need to keep their eye on the ball. His administration is doing lots of stuff in the area of immigration besides trying to erect his hopeless, ridiculous wall.

At the border, on Trump’s orders, CBP have stepped up detentions, and as many Democratic politicos have highlighted, they don’t much care if the detention facilities are safe, hygienic, or humanely run. Children are being separated from their parents, and they aren’t even creating proper paperwork to guarantee that they can be reunited with parents ever again.

Trump is trying to illegally deny migrants the right to apply for asylum.

He has extended “fast-track” deportations within our borders, with the usual Trump sloppiness and incompetence, meaning that people who have valid claims to remain will end up being deported. At least one US citizen has already almost been deported.

And now, he has encouraged the revocation of citizenship for numerous migrants, some of whom have been here for decades, which is a process previously reserved mostly for Nazi war criminals. In the first two years of the Trump administration, there have been more than twice as many of these proceedings than in the previous 12 years.

In the year since a court ordered Fergus to stop separating children from their families at the border, more than 900 children have been separated from their families at the border, by the goddamn Republicans.

And you can't expect much from a Democratic debate on CNN since they hired a Republican operative and former Fergus white house employee to work on their political coverage (h/t:Driftglass):

"Sarah Isgur Flores, a Republican spokeswoman who worked most recently for the Justice Department, has been hired by CNN to help with the network’s political coverage, propelling a Trump administration official directly into a news role for a top cable network."

Recent analysis suggests that 17 million voters were purged from the registration rolls between the years of 2016 and 2018 alone, as Republicans continued with their “cheat to win” strategy in the wake of the crazy Shelby County v Holder decision, in which the SCOTUS wingnuts decided that a bunch of voting rights protections aren’t needed anymore because the South isn’t racist anymore (hahahahahaha).

Because there is empirical evidence wingnuts went after voters of color because they normally vote for Democrats. Wingnuts cream their jeans when they think they have legal ways to screw the Democratic party by denying legal voters access to voter rolls and voting polls.

Courts in North Fuckalina and Fuckonsin ruled wingnuts went after voters of color with surgical precision to gerrymander their votes into meaningless districts so wingnuts could reap the most congressional seats while losing the popular vote by tens of thousands of total votes.

Actual election interference by a hostile foreign power:

China is conducting an aggressive disinformation and influence campaign designed to block the re-election of President Trump in 2020, according to a dissident Chinese billionaire who until recently was close to senior Beijing leaders.

Guo Wengui, an exiled Chinese real estate tycoon-turned-anti-communist critic, said in an interview that details of the influence operation were disclosed recently by Chinese Vice President Wang Qishan in Beijing.

The campaign has been underway since the 2018 mid-term election and involves enlisting pro-China elements inside the United States to end the Trump administration after four years.

Yes, now China has an incentive to try and cause someone sane to be elected president of the United States.
They should absolutely be prevented from doing so.

For the last time, the Central Park 5 had their civil rights violated by police. They were illegally detained, denied counsel and were not allowed to have their parents/guardians with them while they were coerced into confessions.

None of the 5 individuals DNA was ever found at the scene. None of their so called confessions matched any other confession. And the real criminal admitted he did the deed and gave cops details only the the assailant would know. Plus his DNA was the only DNA found on the victim.

Drumpfuck, always the racist, ever the liar......President Donald Trump asked why the United States should accept immigrants from Haiti and African states, which he characterized as “shithole countries.” Instead, he said he wanted more immigrants from countries such as Norway (he had met with the Norwegian prime minister the previous day). As the New York Times pointed out, this presidential discourse was similar to that in 2017, when he allegedly said that Haitian immigrants all had AIDS and that Nigerians in the United States would never go back to their “huts.” In the 2017 case, the White House denied that the president ever made those alleged remarks. This time, the White House did not deny what he said on January 11, and it has been confirmed by some members of Congress present. However, in tweets, the president is now saying that “this was not the language used.” His Deputy Spokesman, and the president himself in after-hours tweets, sought to portray the episode in the context of “America First.”

From Taegan Goddard:

"Donald Trump has now been in office for 30 full months -- February 2017 through July 2019 -- and in that time, the economy has created 5.74 million jobs. In the 30 months preceding Trump's presidency -- August 2014 to January 2017 -- the economy created 6.61 million jobs.

I recently heard from a couple of readers who asked what would happen if we looked at the same numbers, but assigned the job totals from January 2017 to Trump, even though Obama was president for most of the month. On balance, I think that paints a misleading picture, but it doesn't change the underlying dynamic: if we applied jobs from January 2017 to Trump and compared the last 31 months to the previous 31 months, job totals still slowed from 6.91 million to 5.99 million.

The White House, meanwhile, believes we should actually start the clock for Trump at November 2016 -- the month of his election -- and apply the jobs created during the final months of the Obama era to the current Republican president. But that still doesn't help: if we compare the last 33 months to the previous 33 months, job totals slowed from 7.49 million to 6.37 million.

The Republican continues to tell the world that he's overseeing the strongest domestic job growth in American history, which is plainly false. What's more, the White House has not yet offered an explanation for why job growth has slowed since Trump took office."

About time to put yer little micro dick wet dreans to bed and reconcile that Drumpf is the worst, laziest, lyingest over rated POS ever to slime the kremlin annex.

The jobs created during the Trump presidency are on the average much higher paying. Real wages have been growing the past two years - the first time in decades.

He scrapped NAFTA and got a better deal for Americans. He scrapped TPP which would have shipped more jobs overseas. He is taking on China, and the tariffs have sparked a resurgence in the American steel industry. Why do you think China is trying to influence the election against him? They know if the Dems get in the US will fold and it will be back to business as usual.

I know you hate him, but when someone does something that benefits working Americans, we should all be unified.

If real wage increases are worth record deficits I guess we're ok. Whatever happened to deficit hawks and tea partiers who are worried about their grandkids paying off the debt?

mike from iowa said...

China isn't trying to influence the election. Russia still is and Moosecow Mitch McCTurtlefuckface has blocked 9 bills in tqo years trying to ramp up security. Drumpf just admitted again his opinion that Russia did not intervene in 2016 or 18 elections and are not trying to for 2020.

As for Nafta with Canada, Drumpfuck got basically nothing for farmers and neither of the treaties have been ratified. Drumpf is waging a losing battle against China which will hurt America much more than China. Moar farmers will declare bankruptcy and/or kill themselves because Drumpfuck can't get out of his own way on trade wars.

I know you love him but when he does something to divide the nation along racial and geographic lines shouldn't we all be unified in opposition?

The US Constitution was not supposed to create a "democracy" (mob rule).  It was supposed to create a republic.  If the republic has been trampled, the deal which established the Constitution is now void* and everything under it is up for re-negotiation or outright refusal.

This includes faggot "marriage", abortion and "civil rights".

* The deal which ended the War of Northern Aggression included respect for the South and its heroes.  That deal has also been abrogated.  The South now has the right to demand separation anew.  And phuk yew n166as.

Large cities have HIGH taxes, and who are the corrupting officials?  "People of Color", that's who.

Trump allowed ‘Send her back!’ chants for 13 seconds.

It's so funny to see you get all offended that Trump does not police the "incorrect" emotions and desires of his supporters.  I'll give you a hint:  that is why they support him.

Watch the video, he "allowed" the chant until it began to die down, like he has with every other fucking chant at every one of his hate rallies since he found out he could get the morons there to chant.

The chants are organic.  When Trump says something like "more immigration", he gets booed.  That's organic too.

What Fergus has on those Republican officeholders is his 90% approval rating among ordinary Republicans.

Which he has earned.

All of his despicable behavior?

That's what they love. That's what they've been yearning for all of these years when they've been pulled between the opposing forces of the propaganda they consume and the maintenance doses of racism doled out to them by the Republicans they vote for.


What you call "despicable", Americans call "patriotic".  And they're right.

Fergus just noticed that they really wanted a straight geeze of the pure, uncut, product so bad that they'd do almost anything for it.

Trump listens, and he does lots of A/B testing.  He's tuned in; you're clueless.

Anything, like betraying their religion, ditching human decency, and supporting the destruction of their government. And wearing those stupid, stupid, made in China hats on their stupid, stupid, heads, like the mark of the retarded beast.

- Their religion is not one of self-annihilation.
- Human decency extends to them, including their continued existence AS white people.
- If their government has become injurious to them, they have the right to alter or abolish it.

This would not be hard for you to understand if your hate did not blind you.

thanks to all of those years and all of that money the Republican base is so addicted to the propaganda that they need it to function

Propaganda?  "The problems of People of Color are due to white racism; they have no responsibility for their own actions."  How many variations of "racism" have you had to invent so far to keep from having to admit that it's bullshit?  I count institutional, unconscious and implicit just off the top of my head.  Oh, let's not forget "stereotype threat".  ALL BULLSHIT.

White people who refuse to hate themselves (as you do) are fed up with it.  That's how you got Trump.  Want more Trump?  Keep hating the white people who won't hate themselves.

That's why trying to reason with them won't work.

You wouldn't know reason if it bit you in the ass.

“The deal which ended the War of Northern Aggression included respect for the South and its heroes.”

This was a very bad deal indeed, one that should never have been made.

The Civil War should have been followed by a mass wave of hangings, exterminating the entire traitorous white leadership class of the South, followed by forced re-education of the rest of its white citizenry.

Much as postwar Germany was forced to go through de-Nazification, the South should have experienced de-Confederatization. Instead, too much of their poisonous ideologies were allowed to survive.

Our country is as screwed up as it is today in no small part because of the excess of respect and mercy shown to the defeated South.

Pro tip to Fergus fellating morons who want to attack peaceful protesters and get arrested: Learn how to fight before you try throwing punches around. It's not as easy as you think it is and you look like the moron that you are when you run up to someone twice your age and just flail away.

Then, Omarosa stunningly revealed exactly who is coordinating the staging, choreography, and chants at Trump rallies, someone connected to the highest levels of the Trump Administration.



She says that Vice President Mike Pence’s nephew John Pence is a key cog in driving the “crowd narrative” inside a typical Trump hate rally.

We got Drumpf due to Russian interference in the election process and they still continue doing it because Moosecow Mitch McCTurtlefuckface won't stop it and neither will Leningrad Miss Lindsey and his fainting couch.

Are you speaking of the War of the Rebellion? I would be thrilled if the south separated. Go ahead and demand it. We in the northern blue states are tired of supporting your asses. I have long thought that Lincoln made a mistake by not letting the south go. You should read Chuck Tompson's book, "Better Off Without 'Em". It's available on Amazon.

I agree, traitors should be executed, not venerated in statues and worshiped as heroes. Robert E. Lee was the worst of the lot. He was responsible for the deaths of at least a hundred thousand American men from both sides.

Before the Civil War, America was composed of sovereign states joined together in a union.

The Northern states refused to let the Southern states secede.

Robert E. Lee fought for his state, and was not a traitor.

SJWs always double down.  Mostly, you double down on failure.  That's why, despite the total failure of Head Start, Affirmative Action, the "ownership society" and everything else claimed to give browns a boost toward equality with white people, they not only aren't, they despise the ideas as "racist".

So I suppose you would approve of California leaving the U.S. and becoming an independent nation? As I recall, California is the world's 5th or 6th largest economy. If they leave, who will subsidize you?

Robert E. Lee took up arms against his country that he had sworn to support. You can't go through West Point without swearing allegiance to the United States. That makes Lee a traitor to his country no matter how you try to deny it.

----------------------
The Head Start program is not a failure. See https://www.acf.hhs.gov/sites/default/files/opre/executive_summary_final.pdf However, since the evaluation is several pages long, I doubt that you will read it, especially since its content differs from what you believe.

Affirmative Action is not a failure either. There are a great many articles outlining the effects of this policy. Here's one example: https://opencommons.uconn.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1424&context=srhonors_theses. This article is also several pages long. In addition there are many other articles regarding evaluation of affirmative action policy. You can Google it.

As for the Home Ownership Programs, there is a wealth of information for you on Google. Simply go to Evaluation of Home Ownership Programs. It seems they are not failing either. You can't expect me to do all your research for you. I have other stuff to do.

It would be great if you people would do some research before you post. Then we could have some facts to discuss instead of right-wing propaganda. BTW, Head Start programs are designed for low income families, and are not based on race.

He swore allegiance to a Constitutional Republic. The constitution did not grant the federal government the power to forcibly prevent a sovereign state from seceding from a voluntary union.

Lee had the right to take up arms against a government acting outside the bounds of the Constitution.

Your argument is ludicrous. Nothing in the Constitution permits a state or group of states to secede from the union. Nothing in the Constitution allows a state to fire upon a ship of the United States of America.

The goddamn "ownership society" was Dubya's gamble that the housing bubble, which he was well aware of, wouldn't burst until he was out of office, thus both propping up the flagging economy his tax cuts failed to boost, and saving the consequences of his abysmal policies for the next administration to clean up, just like Republicans always do.
Didn't work.
The bubble blew up, destroying trillions of dollars of ordinary citizens' wealth and plunging the economy into the worst downturn since the thirties.
The sub-prime mortgage crisis was a case study in systemic racism, as minority borrowers were specifically targeted for loans they couldn't afford by predatory lenders who lied about them on the loan applications, and then bundled and sold those loans as "mortgage backed securities" in financial instruments so daft and complicated that thousands of borrowers were never able to even discern who held the paper on their mortgages while they were foreclosed on and evicted.
The result was the devastation of hundreds of communities which were left with thousands of empty, foreclosed upon properties decaying and devastating the value of the remaining properties, which in a cycle of destruction, went "underwater" with their own mortgages right as the resulting unemployment rate topped ten percent and the banks refused to refinance them in the dire lending environment, resulting in yet another wave of foreclosures and evictions.
So to characterize the "ownership society" as some kind of program to help minorities is a lie so brazen that I can only imagine it to have originated in the right wing propaganda factories, who are building lifeboats as fast as they can for the coming rebranding of the Republican party in the wake of the downfall of Fergus and his felons.
We intend to burn those motherfuckers as fast as they build them.
There will be no bullshit "Tea Party" this time to hide the Pig People who cheered as the babies were put in cages, you fuckers are gonna own this, and we are gonna beat you with it.

The Head Start program is not a failure.

It has totally failed to equalize black children's achievement with even Mexican children's, let alone white kids.  We know that their problem is not "racism" because NE Asians do even better.

If Head Start had been a success it would have completed its task and been shut down sometime in the 54 years it's been operating.  It cannot succeed because it is based on the premise that the problem is bad black parenting, when it's actually black genes.

Affirmative Action is not a failure either.

We still have both AA and "disparate impact" law because blacks continue to under-achieve.  If these were successes, they would have outlived their usefulness already.

As for the Home Ownership Programs, there is a wealth of information for you on Google.

Most of the minority homebuyers who were "helped" to buy homes in the 2000's lost all their equity when the housing bubble burst around 2007.  This was predicted in advance but... you didn't listen.

Just like you're not listening now.  You're too invested in your lies to listen to truth.
