Trompf from Here on Out (5)

June 21, 2019

6-23-19 It’s Impeachment Time. Because we had not imagined that Trompfist fascism (American Style) could happen, we were unprepared to deal with it—indeed even to imagine it—when it happened.  We didn’t imagine that that was who we are, or ever could be.  So now it’s hard, for many of us, to wrap our minds around the reality of it.  So, on this day, toward a reality-based imagination of ourselves, let’s be clear about some facts (in no particular order, as appropriate to the deranged mind that is their main subject):

(1) Immigrant koncentration kamps are real.  The children in them must be Rescued! and given sanctuary.

The Trompf Kampfs are horrendous acts of State terrorism.  I.e. the State, as an agent of the fascists, in service of the fascists, is using extreme fear as a political tactic, including attacks on the physical and psychological health of children, in the worst cases featuring torture, to motivate a population to do what it wants them to do (go away, stay away).  These are international crimes against humanity.  In case there might come attempts to hold these State actors accountable before the law, they are molding a court system that will defend them.  Their motivation is political; simply by acting, regardless of whether they achieve their nominal goal, they use their acts to inspire their citizen supporters to keep them in power.  The major State actors are Herr Trompf, Stephen Miller, and Mitch McConnell.  Many other Republicans are complicit, individually and as a Party (6-24 example, Sen. Cornyn).

(2)  For the purpose of enhancing their personal wealth and power (privilege), Trompf and his Fascist collaborators (R and Libertarian) have withdrawn the American State from an international agreement that was designed to promote peace, and was doing so, and have replaced it with unilateral actions that risk provoking a catastrophic war. Their motivation is political; simply by acting, regardless of whether they achieve their nominal goal, they use their acts to inspire their citizen supporters to keep them in power (and profit).  The major State actors are Herr Trompf, John Bolton, Mike Pompeo, and Mitch McConnell.  Many other Republicans are complicit, individually and as a Party.

(3)  The American Pr*sident is a confessed sex offender, and probably a serial rapist.  This is an extraordinary individual. Totally fuktup personality.

When we are talking with a woman about sexual harassment or assault, we understand that there is a likelihood that she is a victim of male aggression. If her path of life has been crossed by Trompf, no matter who she is we must keep in mind that she may have been grabbed. If she has remained in his company for a while, we must think about, not just kompromat, but cult leader and Stockholm syndrome.

One of our great political parties selected as its champion the single most odious and immoral figure in American public life, then went to every length they could to defend him. (6-24, Waldman, WaPo)

(4)  For the purpose of enhancing their personal wealth and power (privilege), Trompf and his Fascist collaborators (R and Libertarian) have withdrawn the American State from an international agreement that was designed to moderate the destructive effects of climate change. This act is one of many by which they intend to prevent accountability while they take daily steps to undermine public knowledge of present danger and impending disaster. Their motivation is political; simply by acting, regardless of whether they achieve their nominal goal, they use their acts to inspire their citizen supporters to keep them in power (and profit).  The major State actors are Herr Trompf and Mitch McConnell.  Many other Republicans are complicit, individually and as a Party.

(5)  To make it difficult for us to imagine reality and govern ourselves accordingly, Trompf and his collaborators are systematically subverting the honesty, search for truth, pursuit of justice, and mutual respect, trust, dependence, and generosity that are required by democracy.  Their program for governance is defiance, noncooperation, obstruction, and chaos.  Their motivation is political; simply by acting, regardless of whether they achieve their nominal goal, they use their acts to inspire their citizen supporters to keep them in power (and profit).  The major State actors are Herr Trompf and Mitch McConnell.  Many other Republicans are complicit, individually and as a Party.

Unlike the analogous scenes, circumstances, and characters in dystopian novels, these of factual America are not complicated and subtle.  They only seem so if we refuse to factually imagine them. 

Probably we need to take Camus’s advice, influenced by his experiences in Resistance to the Nazis:  rebel, to achieve consciousness, clarity, passion for life.

If we allow Trompf and his people to continue to commit these acts, they will do worse, and worse.  We’ve seen too much already.  Impeach the Mother-fukkker.

6-22-19 Anger is appropriate now (for instance, this example of State terrorism put in place by Trompf-Miller et al.). In fact it might be a necessary source of energy for fighting back, in a successful self-defense. I’m looking to see (1) how long it takes for another 10% of American adults to realize that the country is being run by a psychopath, enabled by a large pack of other psychopaths and sociopaths, (2) how they find out, and (3) most interesting, what happens then. I’m looking for a Reckoning. I think the pressure in the boiler is building near that point.

6-21-19  Well.  So here we are.  Things can still get much worse and probably will.  But we’re at a point where few people are more morally gross and repugnant than the American Pr*sident, our Predator-in-Chief.  On top of which, he is risking a catastrophically foolish war with Iran, for the benefit of oily oligarchs, corrupt politicians like Netanyahu, and despots like bin Salman.  Who are we?  Electing Obama was one of our most noble acts as a people; electing and tolerating Trompf was and is one of our most ignoble.  We have paid an enormous price for our folly.  But it’s like extortion.  We’re not through paying, and the price will go higher. (If you are in a self-flagellatory, or thank-you-sir-may-I have-another, mood here’s a lash for your back, and another.)

I mean, seriously. It’s getting to the point where even a narrator starts pulling his hair out. Next I’ll be chewing my fingers off.

Hey, I almost forgot to breathe!
