It's easy to understand why so many Americans are so depressed, or so angry, at the thought of a Donald Trump government.
Having any one of those deplorables in the situation room, or anywhere near the nuclear button has to be a living nightmare.
The idea of the sleazy Rudy Giuliani as Secretary of State is enough to make one vomit.
And Trump's decision to make the grubby racist Steve Bannon his chief strategist is an absolute abomination.
For by so doing he has invited the alt-right crazies into the White House.
Bannon boasted in July that Breitbart is the “platform for the alt-right,” and under his leadership for the past four years, the site has peddled alt-right conspiracy theories and promoted various racist and sexist views. Classic headlines include “Bill Kristol, Renegade Jew” and “Birth Control Makes Women Unattractive and Crazy.”
Bannon is already reaching out to right-wing extremist parties in Europe.
And as you can see from some of the swag Breitbart peddles...
It is going to be an all-out war.
Some of Trump's violent supporters are already attacking peaceful protesters as this one does in Ohio...
And it can only get worse as hate crimes surge.
The F.B.I. reported Monday that attacks against American Muslims surged last year, driving an overall increase in hate crime against all groups.
In its report on Monday, the F.B.I. cataloged a total of 5,818 hate crimes in 2015 — a rise of about 6 percent over the previous year — including assaults, bombings, threats, and property destruction against minorities, women, gays and others.
Because this is who they are...
But while Americans, and the rest of us, do have a lot to fear from Trump and his fascist followers.
For who can be sure how soon that deranged demagogue will start bombing Iran, or trigger the Third World War? Two months after he's inaugurated, or two weeks?
Even as he moves to torch the planet by sabotaging the Paris climate agreement, or in his monstrous Trumpland by relaxing emission standards.
So all of us in North America can choke in his fascist fumes.
It is a scary time, but here's the good news...
That bestial predator, that orange oaf, has united progressives like never before.
He has awoken a sleeping giant, and is creating a mighty movement that will bring him down in flames.
He is creating the conditions for OUR revolution. The useful idiot.
The Resistance is rising.
And this is just the beginning...
Let Trump and his
Hear the sounds of a movement being born.
The one they helped create, and the one that will destroy them...
