When I read the bleating of members of the MAGA Moron cult, I am reminded of the Elie Wiesel’s quote, “To remain silent and indifferent is the greatest sin of all.” Thus, all of us should raise our voices, lift ourselves out of our comfortable chairs, use our wits, strength, and our pens to confront this unhinged brigand and his coterie of willing executioners. If only the German people, in the late 1920’s, would have recognized the doom that awaited them through Hitler and his cult of blind followers, who used every excuse to abandon decency, values and the rights of man. I hear these inane explanations and justifications all the time, often from the “Blue Collar” patriots who think everyone else is abusing them. Unfortunately, these folks are quite myopic and cannot see the forest through the trees. In reality, they have no idea who and what dynamics of our society are really at fault. Never forget the fascist mantra, “The ends justify the means!” Is that why we are treating children on the border like animals? Is it to teach them a lesson in American democracy and charity?
Often these people find their convenient scapegoat in someone who is different, like Barack Obama. Yes, he is, and was, different from Trump. Yes, he was poor, from a mixed race background. Thus, with that obvious difference, he is a family man, who has never lowered himself to being a profane, foul-mouth bully, a sexual predator, a serial adulterer and an endemic liar. He is a person who actually earned his way into and through of two of the best colleges and actually paid attention and learned something. What was Trump’s excuse? How did Trump transfer into Penn without his father’s largess in creating a real estate discipline? What was his record at Penn? But, why did Trump lie about his education, his grades and his degrees? He never earned an MBA from Wharton, and for sure was never above the bottom of his class. But, was it a lie that Obama was president of the Harvard Law School’s Law Review? No! But, has anyone, we have ever known or heard about, including Nazi Propaganda Minister Dr. Joseph Goebbels, publicly lie at the level of Herr Trump? In other words, amongst his 11,000 lies, in only the past 2.5 years, what hasn’t he lied about in his whole nefarious existence? One could only then discern he is a liar and no dishonest person can ever be trusted, followed or believed in.
Of course, the Carmodys of this world, think that they are the only ones who have ever sweated, toiled with their hands, or have earned the moral high ground. In fact, ever citizen is affected by this boundless, inarticulate, rabble-rousing, fascist wannabe, who will cling to power by using any means at his command. As for his faux patriotism and religious fervor, let us not forget he is an admitted draft-dodger, who after hiring a number of generals into his administration, we found out soon enough that they all left or were fired. Let us also not forget, that this irreligious Barking Cur has never been in a church in his life, except for a wedding or a funeral. In closing, I am reminded of the oft-repeated Samuel Johnson quote, “Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel!” One could easily add in religion. Even though he claims that the Bible is his favorite book, assuming that this functional illiterate ever read a book, his first wife, who in her now-sealed, divorce statement, after accusing him of beating and raping her, stated, in a signed deposition, that the only book by his bedside was Mein Kampf. Draw your own conclusions!
