Yes blessed friends I’m back. And better than ever. It is my sad duty to have to exercise my First Amendment Rights as an American in order to inform you that The Comb Over is Adolf Hitler with orange hair. 45th President of the United States. If there ever was a sign of the decline of western civilization Donald Trump is it. I told you the parallels were eerie: a leader treated by the political and media establishment as a buffoon, a dimwit outsider and an “it can’t happen here,” lazy intellectual attitude on the part of an ignorant electorate due to a shabby school system kidnapped by Tea Party Christian Right Wing White Republicans in favor of charter, voucher, home school, and just plain minimal investment in the education of our future (our children). Then there is the Big Lie. Then there is the manipulation of liberal democracy by Billionaires and the Soviet Union, er, I mean Russia. I will prove to you in these bitter pages that to vote for a Republican now is to vote for the Nazi Party, Der Fuhrer. Wait and see. It will all become crystal clear.
Where to start? Maybe at the end. The separation and caging of refugee children was the last straw. Where was the last place we saw families divided and sent off to “detention” camps when they came to a new country? Do I have to spell it out for you? You watch the History Channel, right? My father fought to liberate people from concentration camps. Almost died in The Battle of the Bulge. Am I gonna sit here and watch the same thing happen to the Red, White, and Blue? I’m disgusted, appalled. Crying children. My country? Cages. I’m ashamed to call myself American.
ICE. Jack-booted storm troopers. Sometimes you just walk away from your job because it is too repulsive, inhumane. You say “I won’t be a part of this.” Patriots just doing their jobs? So were the SS men in Dachau. Study the banality of evil. They say they’ll use DNA to match the right children with their families. What’s that about? Like parents won’t recognize their own children? Why do we need to match DNA? If this doesn’t sound creepy to you, you aren’t paying attention.
How many times have you heard someone ask “if you were back in Nazi Germany would you have participated in the Holocaust?” The answer is inevitably, “No I would have resisted.” Liars, every one of you.
The time for conversation is over. There is no such thing as “good people on both sides” when the Confederate flag is displayed. How would you feel if they put up a statue honoring Erwin Rommel and you were Jewish? Stone Mountain, Georgia. How does an African American feel about that monument?
On today’s menu is Scott Pruitt Gauleiter of the Environmental Protection Agency. He resigns after disemboweling 50 years of environmental protection for the planet. Talk about putting the fox in the hen house. A lifestyle considered lavish even by Imperial Roman standards on my/your dime while you scrabble to get health insurance, he resigns not in shame, but in having done a “good” job. I’m sure there is a CEO/Lobbyist job he doesn’t need waiting for him in the Energy Sector somewhere. Probably the Koch brothers. Who knows. Presidential Pardon.
Enough for today. I’ll get back to you tomorrow. I have so much more to say….
