I actually try very hard to write good posts in my currently active blog but not many people read it. So, big deal, most blogs are ignored by most people and I don’t care. But I have multiple blogs in this account, several of which I haven’t posted to in months, maybe even years. Yet those get more hits than the one where I try hard to produce good/interesting posts.
But then, criminal dictator Donald Trump is president and too large a fraction of this country loves him. So popularity has absolutely nothing to do with quality.
What I totally don’t get is why so many people are selling out to this con man. Some of them, at least for some part of their lives, were reputable people, but now they absolutely prostitute themselves for this asshole (and how long can I say something like this before his gestapo will censor this). Why do they do it? I’m tired of the media just pointing out these outrages, fanning the flames of how insane it is.
Why are these people selling out the Constitution of the United States. Many, like Barr, have taken an oath on it. How can they totally disregard that and just lick Trump’s asshole. What has he bribed them with? Or what totally crazy ideology do they believe above and beyond the egomaniacal narcissist he is? Do they believe a strongman/dictator is the answer? Do they hate 60% of the country so much they’ll ignore the law and screw them over.
Why do almost reasonable people do this? Some say, at least for elected folks in the Repugnant Party, is that they’re afraid of his base, the brown shirt (and yes, deplorables) that adore their dear leader. Perhaps. The fear of being primary’ed by an even more evil and awful candidate has to be on their minds. But do they sell out their country, their Constitution, a belief in democracy, just to hold onto their jobs?
Yes, you naive dummy – that’s it. Rich people didn’t get rich by being good or right or competent, but by being evil. Power is its own reward in their worldview.
Well, good riddance to all you enabler assholes. You probably have produced a brood of children and grandchildren – the wealth you’ve accumulated through licking Trump’s balls isn’t going to save them from global climate change or Russian takeover of the USA.
In the end, you assholes will lose. In the present, I will lose. As the cliche of economists goes, “in the long run, we’re all dead”. I just hope all you Repug sellouts die not long after I do and actually I think that’s a safe prediction.
Tyranny screws everyone. You Repugs think you’ll be in charge. When Trump’s “enemies” are gone, then he’ll turn on you. Check out Stalin and see how many of his buddies ended up dead or in gulags. So the very people who are enabler this destroyer of the best democracy that ever existing will suffer too.
As another movie cliche said, “For Wales, Richard, for Wales!”
