There’s been an air of inevitability that would it come to this – that ignorance at some point would become increasingly difficult to deny and as they say the chickens would come home to roost.
I have about as much use for the cast of characters from Trump to Bannon and the more servile minions such as Huckabee Sanders, Conway and Ryan ad infinitum ad naseum as I would Ebola.
All, all, of the above are a national disgrace who if they lived in another country like Russia or China would be packed off to a gulag or re education camp – or more pointedly if they lived in a country with an informed and minimally intelligent electorate would never hold office or any governmental position.
Even so I’m willing to give Bannon credit and author Michael Wolff a shout out for pulling back the curtain on the would be autocrat of dementia land, the knuckle dragging ape who would be king.
True to form threats, denials, disjointed tweets, and letters of cease and desist are flying through the ether, panic is sitting in as rats abandon the ship and the Bandar-log frantically turn to Fox Fake News for reassurance.
Hannity must be apoplectic as evangelicals drop to their knees fervently denouncing the “deep state” and a Satan who surely dwells in their very midst authoring their words as they pay homage to their Caesar rendering not what is Caesar’s but the alleged birthrights said to be associated with democracy – the birthright of their own children.
The below quotes are words spoken by former Senator and presidential candidate Barry Goldwater:
“Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the [Republican] party, and they’re sure trying to do so, it’s going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can’t and won’t compromise. I know, I’ve tried to deal with them.
The religious factions that are growing throughout our land are not using their religious clout with wisdom…. I’m frankly sick and tired of the political preachers across this country telling me as a citizen that if I want to be a moral person, I must believe in ‘A,’ ‘B,’ ‘C,’ and ‘D.’ Just who do they think they are?… I will fight them every step of the way if they try to dictate their moral convictions to all Americans in the name of “conservatism.”
“I think every good Christian ought to kick Falwell right in the ass.”
Chaos is the order of the day and has been since the 2016 election cycle began, global allies are turning away in embarrassment and disgust, the environment and working class are being raped and pillaged as a fool behaving like some newly pubescent child boasts about whose is bigger and gloats that he and his rich friends just became richer following the passage of “tax reform”.
The rich and corporations who have taken in this fool as something of a foster child solely for the purpose of associated stipends.
An avowed though severely myopic “counterpuncher” swinging blindly with zero skills lacking the mental acuity of orangutans rumored to be in the family tree.
Where are those who chided me about giving the man a chance, those who falsely claimed the presidency would change Trump, that he would grow into the job, and those who insist to this day that dysfunction is a vehicle for greatness as they are forced to confront their worse nightmare of having to cast their lot either with Trump or Bannon after having embraced both and in doing so not only facilitated being hosed but everything that is wrong?
A rhetorical question no doubt as they remain mired in attempts to understand how to read, write, and that 2+2 really does equal 4 rather than an alternative number.
