What Trump Worships . . .

At least Hitler had the grace to hold up a copy of his own book, Mein Kampf. He was not being a hypocrite.

Just before Trump walked across the street to get the photo op he wanted, he was saying that he would deploy federal troops to protect peaceful protesters after the riots following the murder of George Floyd by a white policeman. He then had the federal troops and police use tear-gas and rubber bullets on peaceful, non-violent protesters so he could have a clear path for this backdrop. St. John’s Church is across the street from the White House.

Note that the church had been closed, and no actual worshipping was going on.

The Right Rev. Mariann Budde, the Episcopal bishop of Washington, had this to say about Agent Orange’s walk to John’s Episcopal Church, which sits across from the White House.

“I am outraged,” Budde said in a telephone interview a short time later, pausing between words to emphasize her anger as her voice slightly trembled.

“Let me be clear, the president just used a Bible, the most sacred text to the Judeo-Christian tradition and stood in front of a house of prayer as a backdrop for a message that is antithetical to the teaching of Jesus in full expectation that (it) would be a celebratory moment.

“Everything he has said and done is to inflame violence,” Budde of the president. “We need moral leadership, and he’s done everything to divide us.”

The Dictator Trump Conspiracy Deepens

May 6, 2020

dictator FIRST, he gained the power to declare ’emergencies’ when there was none in order to suppress illegal immigrants. Then he usurped Congressional power over the budget in order to build his wall. Then he called on his Neo-Nazi fanatics to bring armed protests–complete with MAGA gear and swastikas–into state office buildings and other places to disrupt state power over the ‘shelter in place’ regulations . . . which HE had dumped on the states to control.

Now, even though the House of Representatives and the Senate have bilaterally passed a bill to keep him from pursuing his illegal war in Iran (the Constitution only grants the power to declare war to the legislature, not the president), Agent Orange has vetoed the bill, claiming “This was a very insulting resolution, introduced by Democrats as part of a strategy to win an election on November 3 by dividing the Republican Party.”

NO! The legislature is trying to protect its Constitutional rights against this would-be dictator. We must STOP this maniac!

Trump Lets Loose His Brownshirts

Just like Hitler’s fanatics, the white nationalist thugs are out in force (literally) sporting semi-automatic weapons and wearing MAGA gear. Members of the neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement, the neo-fascist street gang The Proud Boys, and white supremacist pseudo-militia groups such as Patriot Front, have been identified as organizers and leaders of the protests “against the Democrat-driven unconstitutional lockdown,” as they call it. Fueled by Agent Orange’s demands to “liberate” Democratic states enforcing ‘shelter in place’, these groups have not only been inciting general protests, but also accosting and vilifying medical workers who are trying to treat victims of COVID-19 infection, along with their other patients. This disgusting behavior is exactly what we have been expecting from this would-be dictator and his violent bully-boys.

The Death of an Ideal … the Disgrace of a Country

November 9, 2016

When Adolph Hitler was elected Chancellor of Germany in 1933, many human ideals died. His reign of terror lasted for less than 12 years, yet many millions of lives were lost and the humanistic and political repercussions still echo today. Although Germany has recovered much of its former luster as a nation of strength and intelligence, there still remains the taint of the Third Reich.

Hitler had his Brown Shirts and the support of many German citizens who made hate their primary agendas. Donald Trump has the white supremacist groups, including the KKK and American Nazi Party, who support his election. While it is doubtful that he can do the same damage to the world, the essential principles remain the same.

Make no mistake: I believe that Hillary Clinton was also a potential presidential disgrace. She is a privileged, smug, self-entitled, corrupt, cynical representative of a “business as usual” governmental process. But she is not a maniac who would deliberately lead her country into a battle of religious and ethnic bigotry that could lead to another world war—one that could involve nuclear weapons.

There are many ideals that died today. Religious, racial and sexual tolerance. Human equality. The quest for a peaceful solution to human problems rather than the radical methods that Trump has espoused during his campaign. And more.

Throughout the world, this will be seen as a very similar disgrace as to what Germany experienced during and after the Hitler regime. I can only hope that the following decades do not bewail the same aftermaths in America with the rise to power of Donald Trump.
