Donald Trump and the Burning of America
I've been warning for a long time that the monstrous demagogue Donald Trump could end up setting his own country on fire.
Whether he wins or when he loses.
And sure enough while Trump complains about Hillary Clinton calling some of his supporters a "basket of deplorables."
Here's what the governor of Kentucky, a Trump supporter and rabid anti-gay bigot, had to say about what might happen if those deplorables are defeated:
Yes, believe it or not, Clinton's election he said may call for shedding the blood of "tyrants" and "patriots."
Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin (R) said on Saturday that conservatives may have to turn to physical violence to protect their values.
“The roots of the tree of liberty are watered by what? The blood. Of who? The tyrants to be sure, but who else? The patriots,” he said. “Whose blood will be shed? It may be that of those in this room. It might be that of our children and grandchildren.
Which is not just deplorable, it's dangerously deranged. And he should be arrested as a potential terrorist.
But then that is who those Trumpers are: crazy, cowardly, ignorant, violent, and feral.
69 year old Shirley Teeter, who wears an oxygen mask and lugs around a tank to support it, was protesting outside a Trump rally in North Carolina when a feral Trump turned on her and punched her right in the face. Cold-cocked her, as Shirley put it.
This is a great question:
After the interview, Teeter called News 13. She wanted to add one more thing, a question. She asks if people find a Trump supporter punching her in the face deplorable.
One that many Americans must now be asking themselves.
And one that can only make Donald Trump's claim that his supporters are being slandered sound even more ridiculous.
Or in his case fraudulent..
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said on Tuesday he had opened an inquiry into the Donald J. Trump Foundation to ensure the Republican presidential nominee’s charity was complying with state laws governing nonprofits.
Because as I predicted the other day, him and his supporters are about to be dipped like sheep, in a pool of their own excrement...
And the best news?
Whatever Trump and his supporters might want people to believe.
Vladimir Putin, an unabashed dictator who invades other countries, tramples on his people’s civil and human rights, and has the blood of Russian journalists on his hands is the proper role model for an American president.
Like the absurd notion that Putin is a great leader, or the crazed conspiracy theory that Clinton is dying.
Hillary Clinton has a fatal illness and the national media are conspiring to cover it up. (Why have I never been invited to join these conspiracies?)
Their views are all appalling, they are all deplorable...
They will incite even more progressives to get out and vote.
And they will help destroy the Republican Party.
The situation has gotten so dire, Politico reported recently, that former President George W. Bush told a reunion of members of his staff in April: “I’m worried that I will be the last Republican president.”
Actually, the Republican Party that Reagan built has been moribund since the rise of the Tea Party and the do-nothing Congress led by Mitch McConnell and John Boehner. If Trump finally kills it with his conspiracy-mongering, immigrant-bashing, race-baiting and Kremlin-loving, it will just be a coup de grâce.
And since the best way to fight fire is with water.
All that remain to be done is to float Trump and his deplorables down a river.
And send them all to hell in a hand basket...
