Nazis Again

Or as Pumpkin calls them, very fine people.

Some of last year’s national shame — CNN 

They’re marching again today in Charlottesville and Washington, DC.  Last year they only killed one person.  I’m sure they would like to expand on that total this time around.  I hope they fail.  In fact, I hope every single person supporting these racist displays fails in every single way imaginable.

All the articles I read wringing their hands over how Pumpkin supporters never waver no matter how much corruption and graft he flaunts, or badly his policies damage them economically.  In my Google+ stream, I have a collection I post these stories to: It’s the Racism, Stupid!

I am eager for America to prove me wrong.  My expectations are nice and low, however, so I am unlikely to be disappointed.

Sarcasm Works

This is sarcastic, not that a lot of Twitter commenters were wise to that fact.

And the point underlying the sarcasm, that Trump supporters are human tire fires who are not worthy of understanding or dialog, is spot on!  The only way to deal with them is to shun them now and to vote your own – and America’s – self-interest in November.  The racists, Nazis and grifters need to be sent crawling back under their rocks.

Nazis, or as Pumpkin has called them, “very fine people.”  On the other hand, the 1933-45 German version probably did indeed have Germany’s interests at heart, even while going about it very badly from every point of view.  They were certainly not trying to sell it out to Russia or any other foreign power.

Rick Wilson (no friend of Pumpkin, to be sure), says in this Newsweek piece that the cruelty of the “zero tolerance” immigration edicts and stripping babies from their mothers plays well on TV, revving up their base of shitty, shitty people.

And their core supporters want anybody who’s darker than a latte deported. They’re not happy about immigration of any kind. They don’t believe in the asylum process. They want to take and separate these families as a matter of deterrence and as a sort of theater of cruelty. I think it really doesn’t speak well to their moral standing.

Everyone darker than a latte!  What do you want to bet that will also mean Jews and LGBTQ+ people before this is over?

That last sentence, by the way, is Wilson’s entry in the Understatement Olympics.

 

Descent Into Fascism

This cartoon tells the story of Rob Rogers of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.  He was the editorial cartoonist with a left-of-center viewpoint.  Then the publisher decided he had to go because of insufficiently licking the boots of Cheeto Benito.

Print media is not exactly a nascent growth industry, and I doubt that moves like this are going to improve its business prospects.

No, this is just more angry old white men who figure to die soon, and they are determined to bring us all down with them.   The entire Pumpkin administration is a suicide vest the Faux News crowd and the neo-Nazis have fastened around the entire world, and they are fixing to push the button.

Happy Independence Day, by the way.  We had a good run!

 

It’s Wearing on Me

I find myself feeling a deep dislike for all supporters of our flat-out fascist Federal regime now.  These are people I want nothing to do with anymore.  Financially-privileged white suburbanites.  Rural #MAGAs.  The entire states of Indiana, South Dakota and any of those that ever styled themselves part of the CSA.

I don’t want to use the word “hate” for what I feel, but it’s functionally indistinguishable.  I have reached the point where I do not find it useful or even possible to make a distinction between a “person who supports a policy like that” and the policy itself.  Empathy for such people is beyond my reach.  And I don’t even feel motivated to try.


As for the people of color, the queer, the women, the disabled and the immigrants who are trapped geographically in amongst all that human fungus around them… I want to work now on shielding them from the worst of it and on rescuing them from it where possible.
