Plymouth Rock — Don’t Shoot!
The President of the United States is encouraging white nationalists to commit terrorist acts in the United States.
The Commander in Chief is telling the military to commit war crimes at the border.
Republicans are cool with it as long as it gets them votes.
Trump is now using military force, fake news, fear, xenophobia, and racism to keep control of the government. That is exactly what Hitler did.
He’s freaking panicking. He needs his CRAZY base more than ever because that’s all he’s got. He’s ratcheting up the racist hyperbole to stir up actual violence. He’s really going for it with the so called caravan of smallpox and leprosy infested rapists and murderers (1,000 miles away.) When asked whether the military will shoot people at the border he said, “I hope not. I hope there won’t be that. But I will tell you this, anybody throwing stones, rocks like they did to Mexico…we will consider that a firearm. Because there’s not much difference when you get hit in the face with a rock.”
Hey Republicans! Where do you stand on shooting rock throwers?
Only a fraction of the “caravan” will ever even make it to the border and Trump knows it. Smallpox was eradicated over 30 years ago. Leprosy can only be found in parts of Africa and Asia and can be treated with antibiotics but he and his kooky evangelical, fear the leper, it’s all right there in the Bible, cult followers don’t know that. They might know that they’re not all murderers and rapists but they don’t care. GET OUT.
Trump made the most racially charged national political ad in 30 years where he and the Republicans accused Democrats of plotting to help Central American invaders overrun the nation with cop killers featuring a scary criminal who had been released by Sheriff Joe Arpaio, deported by Bill Clinton, and then re-entered the country under George W. Bush, but you wouldn’t know that unless you knew more about things. The ad was propaganda, racist, and void of facts. It doesn’t matter. Trump knows that his followers will believe anything. They should feel insulted, not inspired. Trump knows that too.
Trump used the White House to campaign 5 days before an election . He said it was going to be a speech on immigration but what it really was was a MAGA rally in the Roosevelt room. He lied about the asylum system, his policy of separating families, and his stupid fucking wall, in an attempt to try to inflame his base before the midterms. The ultimate reality TV optics — coming to you live, from the White House — Vote Republican! No president has ever done anything like this.
No president would ever think of doing anything like this.
A reporter asked Trump if he lied. He lied and said, “I try not to. I always like to be truthful.”
Oprah went to Georgia to campaign for gubernatorial candidate, Stacey Abrams. She delivered an inspirational speech. After that, she canvassed for Stacey, going door to door asking people if they plan on voting for Stacey Abrams.
Mike Pence got jealous that Oprah got so much attention. He was in Georgia too, campaigning for Stacey’s opponent, Brian Kemp. “I heard Oprah was in town today. I heard Will Ferrell was going door-to-door the other day. I’d like to remind Stacey and Oprah and Will Ferrell — I’m kind of a big deal, too.” Then he threw in the tired, old Republican talking point, “This ain’t Hollywood.”
If this were Hollywood, the bad guys would have been killed off a long time ago.
Marco Rubio touched on immigration in a tweet this morning, “History will remember this as the week liberal politicians and legal ‘scholars’ transformed into constitution originalists — well at least as it relates to the 14th Amendment.” He didn’t capitalize Constitution.
Republican hypocrite fun fact: Both of Marco Rubio’s parents were Cuban immigrants. They were not US citizens at the time of his birth. They naturalized in 1975 when he was 4. The US has been very generous to Cuban refugees, giving them automatic asylum. Now he’s got all of this power and is using it to thin the brown herd by taking rights away. Typical scumbag Republican — I got mine, forget about yours.
Marco Rubio and his family got special treatment by the US government and they have really prospered here. He should probably shut up about anyone who would walk thousands of miles only to be met by an army.
History will remember this as the week after we had the largest political assassination attempt followed by the worst Jewish mass murder in US history during a time when Republicans held all 3 branches of government and did nothing except stoke racial fear and hatred to try and win votes.
Four more days. If Oprah can pound the pavement so can you.
