One of "us".

 




I just saw a report that most republicans believe that the January 6th insurrection was a democratic inside job to make their dear leader, Donald trump, look bad. I mean, seriously? How can we even have  a normal debate with these people?  What would make seemingly normal people show this type of cult like devotion to an obvious charlatan?

I have a theory, and you can stop reading now if the race card offends you. Yes, it's all about race. There is no other explanation for it. Donald trump has brilliantly built himself up as America's first white supremacist president in the modern era, and that is just fine with a certain segment of the white population who believes that their country is being taken away from them, and that those other people are turning it into their country. Donald trump doesn't have to say the quiet part out loud, because most white Americans who live with that fear see a sort of savior in trump. So what if he is a fascist? He is our fascist. He will protect our way of life. He will take us back to the days when our superiority wasn't questioned. In other words, he will make America great again.  

This is why, no matter what, Mr. trump will always have a large segment of the population in his corner. No matter how many crimes he is charged with, no matter how many women he rapes or brags about assaulting, it won't matter. It drives other Americans nuts. Those of us who consider ourselves normal and who want to see the better angels in others want to believe that the people who support him really  believe in their hearts that he is just a guy that means well and his policies will help them in the long run. That is not true. Go back to my second paragraph and read it again. It's an uncomfortable truth, and if we can't come to grips with it the cult of Donald trump will forever have us perplexed.

The British writer, Nate White, penned a brilliant essay about why the Brits don't like Mr. trump. It's worth a read. 

Another essay could be written about why so many Americans like Mr. trump. The answer would be simple: He is one of us.

The Republican voting base was used to having their racism doled out to them in measured doses that excited them enough to vote in the primary and then maintenance doses between elections to keep them from straying.
Fergus' stroke of crude brilliance was seeing that and saying "Fuck that, here's a straight up geeze of the pure product. Your ignorance is noble and your bigotry is patriotic." And since then his base has been as loyal as any run of the mill junkie is to their main source. And all of those Republicans trying to out Fergus Fergus? Clueless idiots, trying to lure junkies away from their main source by noticing that the source wears a purple hat, and then wearing a bigger purple hat. The hat won't help them. Even more, and better junk won't help them, because Fergus has the junk they like, and they won't change their tastes capriciously.
And no, they won't care if their source has committed other crimes, as long as the junk keeps coming.
This phenomenon works in both directions, also, eliciting behavior just as erratic from Fergus, so much so that he's under sanction from multiple judges because it's more important to him to keep his customers satisfied than it is to avoid legal risks.
I don't see any way to break his idiot hordes of their addiction, even if he loses and is imprisoned for his crimes, they will still remember what he did for them: fed their addiction and made them feel good about being junkies.
Where else are they going to find that? They're in for the lesson that all junkies have to learn: you can never replicate that first great high, and everything after is a game of diminishing returns until you have nothing left but your addiction, and you can't live off of it, so you either come down or die.

Thanks for this, Field, and Doug too. As an 80-year-old with a quality education I've read all the theories and political analyses, only to agree that it may wear new clothes and language (POC are "othered" these days) but it's still the SAMO SAMO racism, our evergreen affliction, even though with new attachments (Mexicans, Muslims, etc). So old, so boring to social scientists looking for new slants, but rallying the poor and left-behind superior race, living out of trailer parks or not. (They may enjoy a Denzel Washington movie or an NFL or NBA game but that doesn't compute) So it's the same old rock to turn over, same old vermin, only now all the quiet parts can be screamed because you're the rival and the even-more-powerful ENEMY. God have mercy.

History tends to repeat itself, fascist crop up almost every throughout world history. Trump is the Great White Avenging Angel for people of Europeans everywhere. I'm not surprise at all the country is in the shape, what's worse is that the black AMerican community never really prepared itself for this eventuality, no to mention all of Africa and the Caribbean.

At this point, I’m mostly concerned with what the MAGA cult will do when their conman leader gets convicted and sentenced for his many misdeeds. I suspect there will be an explosion of irrational violence.

The media wingnut-o-sphere has convinced too many of their readers/viewers that we cannot all get along in this country, and have fostered an “us or them” mentality. Ridiculously, MAGA cult members do seem to believe that they are persecuted, or at any rate soon will be, and Trump is their only salvation. Some of them will probably freak completely out when he is removed from the political scene.

And what will happen after that temper tantrum? Will the Republican Party then return to something approaching sanity? (Not that I respected them decades ago, but at least back then they weren’t mounting constant assaults on democracy.) Or are we in for something even worse?

Not true. Trump going to prison might cause Republicans to finally get a fucking clue and get off the insane, country-destroying path they’re currently on.

That would affect everyone’s life for the better. In the U.S. and the rest of the world.

“I’d rather read your opinion on Charlamagne Da God’s double rape case: African American legal name Lenard Larry McKelvey took some underage crotch.”

Prosecutors dropped that case. Several years ago.

Legally speaking, this is in the “stuff that didn’t happen” category. Unless that changes, what’s to report on?

But Insane Clown classic con artist that he is has them conditioned like Pavlov's dogs, learning his lessons well from years of associating with Vince McMahon and pro wrestling. After the 2022 election where all his handpicked candidates got their asses kicked I thought for sure they would dump him for DeSatan who in many ways is a bigger prick than Trump. Don't Say Gay, Don't Say Don't Say Gay, taxpayer funded militia, legalized vehicular homicide, quack Surgeon General, Trump is an Insane Clown, DeSatan is just Insane. But for all his prickness DeSatan just doesn't have the talent for pushing peoples' buttons that Insane Clown has.

My recollection of 9-11 was flying into Newark the night before and it was a perfect day. I was on top of the world, a young 737 co-pilot flying with a cool captain. As we drove to the Newark airport Hilton we joked about New Yorkers, as I sometimes do. After arriving we got our keys and stepped onto the elevator to go to our rooms. A crew of flight attendants also got on the elevator with us. I struck up a converstaion with one of the crew an attractive young lady, just small talk, where are you based and when are you leaving ect. We were both leaving the next day. We all know what happened the next day. One of the planes originated in Newark and since we only had a few flight out of there I just knew she was on that flight. I was just torn up that someone I just met and was full of life was no longer with us. Well after a day of feeling confused, depressed and paranoid I left my room to maybe find something to eat. When the elevator doors opened up I looked across the room and I saw her. OH MY GOD! SHE'S ALIVE! She saw me and must have thought the same thing as we ran and just hugged each other. After all that was wrong with that day I at least had this little victory and for those few minutes the world was ok. Neither of us said a word and walked away. I never knew her name and I wouldn't recognize her today if she punched me in the nose but I want to thank her for giving me a sliver of good that day.

There’s no room for country club Republicans like him anymore.

The Supreme Court's ruling in the Bruen case established a new (and admittedly insane) standard for gun restrictions: They are automatically unconstitutional unless they have “historical analogues” from 1791, when the 2nd Amendment was ratified.

Since I highly doubt that there were any bans on drug users owning guns back in 1791, Hunter could probably take his case all the way to the Supreme Court and wingnut his way into having the law he's been charged with struck down.

As long as RFK runs as a Democrat, I don’t care. He’s got no chance of beating Biden in the primaries. All the money Clapton raises will get flushed down the toilet anyway.

If RFK decides to skip the primaries and run as a third-party candidate in the general election, then I’ll get worried. In our dumb, poorly conceived electoral system, that could split the Democrat vote and result in the re-election of President Jailbird, and send the country into meltdown.

New Jersey US Sinator Menendez (D) and his wife indicted on bribery charge according to DOJ. Menendez is a Democrat and magats have yet to condemn DOJ for politicizing the DOJ as they do when magats like drumpf get indicted.

“New Jersey US Sinator Menendez (D) and his wife indicted on bribery charge according to DOJ.”

Rumors of corruption have swirled around Menendez for years. He was tried unsuccessfully for corruption in 2015, but apparently learned nothing from the experience and didn’t clean up his act, as the feds found half a million in cash lying around his house.

When he inevitably steps down, I hope the Dems are able to hold onto his Senate seat. They should have tried to oust this guy earlier. He was way past his sell-by date.

Yeah, that was garbage. Senate Dem leaders were so eager to look tough on sexual harassment that they didn't allow for any kind of investigation or due process before insisting Franken should go. And also Congresswoman Katie Hill, who was basically forced out for having a kinky (but consensual) sex life, and not because she abused her power to coerce sex out of anyone.

It's not like these cases were going to "set an example" for Republicans on sexual harassment anyway. They don't give a shit, and will shamelessly keep right on harassing. Hell, Trump is probably a rapist, in addition to all of his other misdeeds, and it doesn't matter to Republican voters at all.

Menendez, on the other hand, almost certainly isn't being unfairly maligned. There's not a lot of doubt about his guilt here. He's crooked.

Slow clap for Tim Scott, who suggested during last night’s pointless GOP debate that the creation of welfare was worse for black people than slavery.

While this is an insane take, on its face, it also repeats a dumb, unkillable zombie idea that endlessly circulates around the black community. And that is that the primary cause of instability in black romantic relationships is black women wanting to dump their boyfriends so they can become eligible for welfare.

While poverty does indeed destroy lots of relationships, it is patently ridiculous to focus on and criticize the nitty gritty details of welfare requirements and NOT blame racism and elitist economic/justice system policies that made black people need welfare in the first place. It is Republican policies that create the poverty that Democrats end up trying to alleviate with welfare social safety nets.

Democracy was not threatened, nor was violence employed here, unlike on Jan 6th. This was just a big, irritating inconvenience for everyone.

Yeah, that was my take. Newsom probably came to regret pledging to appoint a black woman, and thereby pissing off any other potential aspirants for the job who aren’t from that demographic.

To avoid reneging on his pledge, he found a black woman who is most likely just a temporary seat-filler (because she has never held an elected position and has minimal name recognition) and so won’t pose much of a threat to any established Democrat candidates vying for the job in the spring primaries.

I hope Democrats don’t regret not saving McCarthy, since whoever follows him will probably be worse than him. Then again, maybe McCarthy wasn’t willing to offer anything at all in return for being saved.

On the plus side, if Republicans now render the House ungovernable and cause an extended federal shutdown, that will comprehensively fuck them in next year’s elections.
