FORT SUMTER FIRED UPON (Again)

July 17, 2019

Racist and/or sexist personal attacks are nothing new for Herr Trompf.  They are a tactic that he developed long ago.  His current attacks on four U. S. Congresswomen, repeated and supported by members of his administration and almost all Republicans in Congress (especially this goofball from South Carolina, among etc.) are especially vile and loathsome because he is especially desperate to distract voters from his association with sexual abuse of children, and from the imminent appearance of Mueller before congressional committees.

That desperation has caused him to choose this moment for launching this attack, but I’m thinking that he was ready to attack in this way because he has already developed his White Supremacist, White Nationalist, exclusionist strategy for re-election, that will feature racism and sexism, especially in the guise of preventing immigration by nonwhite persons, plus McCarthy-style attacks on Democrats as socialist, communist aliens.  His goal will be to divide, enrage, and conquer. (But will it work?)

I’m seeing this attack as the first salvo of Phase 3 of America’s sociopathic Civil War.  Phase 2 began with the assassination of Lincoln, putting Johnson in the presidency, paving the way for the end of Reconstruction, the KKK, Jim Crow, the rebirth of the KKK in the 19-teens and twenties (in IN), the Nixon “southern strategy” that marked the end of the R Party as “the party of Lincoln” (replaced by the Democratic Party of FDR, Truman, the Kennedys, LBJ, Carter, Clinton (“the first black president”) and Obama (the actual first black president), and Reagan.  

Trompf is now declaring the final extension of the southern strategy, extending it into the North, with a second “birth of a nation” of the lily white.  He is making sure that what he stands for is clearly, blatantly seen, so that his 2020 victory will be indisputably the victory of the plutocrats who embody, profit by, and champion those damn psycho-pathologies of American democracy that historically have been represented by the slave-owner aristocracy, and the deplorables who shine their boots.

But hey, if we’re talking Senator (D-SC), I’d like to have this guy on my side.
