#Antifa is terrorism because rightwing violence is coddled and encouraged in America (Updated)

“It's a thing called Article 2. Nobody ever mentions Article 2. It gives me all of these rights at a level that nobody has ever seen before.” - Dick Tater Trump
Conservative beliefs taken to their logical conclusion leads inexorably to Fascism. So, it's no wonder Trump and Senator Ted Cruz have called upon the FBI and Director Wray to declare #ANTIFA a terrorist organization.

Now, I will mention conservatives pretend to be against Big Government especially big Federal Government but, that's a lie. Don't expect calls of hypocrisy to alter conservatives minds' because they are shameless. Conservatives love big government when said government is devoted to the Reactionary destruction of minorities, liberals, feminists, LGBTQ, workers rights, clean air and water, and anything which interferes with returning the United States to a Neo-Feudal Wage Slave State where Americans are trapped forever in Corporate Bondage. 

If you were to ask a rightwinger for the goals and ideology of #Antifa or for a breakdown of funding and money flow, they will emphatically declare #Antifa are the Real Fascists and they are funded by George Soros (and/or the DNC). But, ask for recruitment techniques and methods or for an actual manifesto and the responses will get a little more generic. Then ask them for a detailed command & control table or an organizational Line & Block chart with actual names and you'll see the blank stare of those who have willingly swallowed rightwing propaganda and don't think for themselves or know anything.

#Antifa is a convenient bogeyman for the Right. It allows Republicans to grandstand and produce those unctuous floor speeches, Ted Cruz is known for. But, it's also a useful tool for the upcoming 2020 Elections.

Trump and the Republican can bemoan and wail, 'We tried to get those dastardly #Antifa declared terrorists but, those Obama DC bureaucrats and Witch Hunt FBI agents are too busy investigating innocent Trump! That's why you need to re-elect Trump and as many Republicans to office so we can drain the swamp, repeal Roe v. Wade, arrest George Soros, undo Obamacare, outlaw #Antifa, etc, etc, etc.'

The other more sinister reason for this is once the Republicans can declare #Antifa terrorists, well then they have to power to arrest anyone who speaks out against their agenda of hatred, intolerance and oppression. Did you protest the selling of National Parks for drilling and despoliation? You are #Antifa. Off to GITMO. Did you join Moms demand Action on Gun Control? Well, that's #Antifa. Extraordinary Rendition to a black site in the Seychelles. Are you a journalist Trump doesn't like? You are #Antifa adjacent, prepare to be slaughtered.

Perhaps, I should point out that Rightwingers have been busy on-line creating the justification needed to murder anyone they deem associated with #Antifa and conservatives have no problem openly discussing their plans to break into peoples homes and murder those on their lists of #Antifa.

On Twitter, syphilis addled Donald Trump still inciting violence

Trump is not a smart man but, he does know where his strength lies and how to keep himself popular; by throwing raw racism and hatred to his #MAGAt Horde.

Conservatives long ago tired of the racist dog whistles which satiated their parents, instead they demanded outright racism in their candidates. In 2008, John McCain balked when presented with the opportunity "Obama is an Arab" and in 2012 Mitt Romney considered himself far too genteel to stoop to outright bigotry.

But, not Trump. He's has been a racist bigot since the 1970's and he knows what tune the rubes he's playing want to hear.

Trump supporters have already killed and attempted to kill dozens of people and he's already skirted past the 'won't someone get rid of these meddlesome Democrats' with his tweets. Twitler's latest call to Violence involves a new defamation of Representative Ilhan Omar,
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) today called on Twitter to take action against President Donald Trump’s account and remove a tweet in which he shared a false claim that Omar had “partied” on the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. 
“They have a responsibility and they set community standards and clearly the president has shown many-a-times that he has violated their community standards,” she told POLITICO. “I don't even know why his account is not fully suspended — why he's not deplatformed.”
Don't expect Twitter to do anything about it, as a platform Twitter was specifically designed for The Fash, Russian bots and Identity thieves to use.

Trump's Horde is primed for him to outright call for Violence against the Non-#MAGA but, he continues incite the individually unpredictable but statistically predictable acts of Stochastic Terrorism with his syphilis addled tirade sand tweets.

Propaganda Works because Conservatives love lies and hate America

Conservatives have broadcast their loathing hatred, barely restrained rage, and murderous intent towards liberals for years. I would call it a Whispering Campaign, except those scream filled Trumpenproletariat Rallies are full-on Fascist spectacles.

A half-way decent Foreign Intelligence Service need not rely on billion dollar SIGINT capabilities or engage in 1950's Era spy games in order to deduce this; all they needed was an internet connection and et viola the entire playbook on how to influence and ultimately control America was right there.

The Washington Post has a story on how a Macedonian cabal took over a Facebook Group, Vets for Trump, using the oldest con in human history, free money. After gaining control of the administrator rights, all the original members were supposedly locked out so the Vets for Trump Group could spread the vile propaganda of the 2016 election and solicit donations. Here is the point, the head of the Macedonian cabal claims he didn't need to invent any stories he just repackaged and relabeled the tripe coming from American right-wingers;
Trajche Arsov said he paid freelance writers to do this work, which consisted mainly of rewriting articles they found on conservative American news and opinion sites and adding new headlines. A key goal was avoiding violations of U.S. copyright law, Trajche Arsov told The Washington Post.
For decades there has been this constant non-stop propaganda campaign. The players change but, the script remains the same. The Rightwing Wurlitzer churns out the same notes for the conservative drones; the Left is weak and evil,

In the 1960's, the John Birch Society called Martin Luther King Jr a Communist and proclaimed Civil Rights to be a commie plot and indicted President Kennedy on "Treason".

In the 1970's, Jimmy Carter surrendered America freedom by "giving away" the Panama Canal.

In the 1980's, the College Republicans Reagan Youth called Walter Mondale a "squish" and organized against the cadre of Marxist professors and members of the mass communications media, who are "the enemies of freedom" trying "To confuse its defenders and undermine their morale". (James Tyson's 1981 book Target America)

In the 1990's, the Militia groups formed to wage war on Attorney Janet Reno and Bill Clinton and a conservative domestic terrorist took direct action against the insidious Democrat Party in 1995.

After the conservatives stole the 2000 election and us ushered in the W(orst POTUS of All Time) and  the Republican "Great Recession", the Tea Party was created to rouse the troops once more, Here is a typical Tea Party Nation broadside against Socialism:
Resolved that: Our President, the Democrats-Socialists, most of the media, and most of those from Hollywood, have now encouraged and supported "Occupy" demonstrations in our streets, which are now being perpetrated across the globe, and which are being populated by various marxists, socialists and even communists, and are protesting against business, private property ownership and capitalism, something I thought I'd never see in my country, in my lifetime.

I, an American small business owner, part of the class that produces the vast majority of real, wealth producing jobs in this country, hereby resolve that I will not hire a single person until this war against business and my country is stopped.

I hereby declare that my job creation potential is now ceased. "I'm on Strike!"
Now as we approach the 20's the current evil boogeyman has morphed from #Occupy to #Antifa, while Traitor Trump uses his platform to incite violence against the evil, weak Democrats trying to undermine America with (Immigration, Clean Water Laws, Colin Kaepernick, the Fake News Media, whatever) because the Republican Party needs to constantly arouse the anger of their guard dogs and focus the violence of their stable of Lone Wolves.

Conservative websites are an incestuous echo chamber of vile sexist #agitprop, racist screeds, misogynist hatred which is reflected and amplified by commenters. The goal is to keep conservatives in that sweet spot of red-eyed rage ready to denounce Libtards and then reinforce the spittle flecked anger.

As a Nation, we are in serious trouble. Conservatives have been programmed by propaganda and now seek out confirming data to reinforce and strengthen their programming. But, simply screaming on the internet no matter how satisfying won't sustain them forever; what conservatives really want to do is recreate a White Supremacist Apartheid State, ensconced by Law. And when The Chosen One loses the Election of 2020, well the Republican Party might be content with running the deficit playbook against President Elizabeth Warren but, the conservative domestic terrorist groups aren't going to be satiated by anything other than blood.

Wag the Weenie the Brett Kavanaugh story (Updated)

Boofer O'Kavanaugh is a serial weenie waver and mean drunk. But, telling the truth about serial Rape-publican Kavanaugh broke something in the conservative brain. The Reactionary #MAGAT Horde exists now on a diet of ceaseless lies and white hot rage. They have no agenda save oppression and #OwntheLibs.

When there is this great a divide, violence is not far off. And indeed, rightwing terrorism is now commonplace in the Nation, as conservatives have been conducting a low-level guerrilla war in the United States for some time. Rightwing propaganda has given us a never ending string of so-called Lone Wolves which has been accelerating under the Traitor Trump Administration.

Conservatives tied all their hatred and animus towards liberals into the body of Brett Kavanaugh transubstantiating him into The Flesh of The Chosen One. Every new revelation about Kavanaugh's rapist ways only further cements conservatives love for him. Conservatives will never abandon Kavanaugh and ergo, no Republican will vote to Impeach Kavanaugh.

This doesn't mean the Democratic Party shouldn't impeach Rapist Kavanaugh. Indeed some of the most important battles you have to fight are the ones you know you're going to lose. You don't fight them because you will win, you fight them because it is the right thing to do.

Of course, it is easy for me to tell Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to fight a losing battle, it's much harder for them to accept a political defeat which, due to the fascist nature of our News Media and the firmly ensconced Rightwing Propaganda machine, will turn into the worst disaster since the Hindenburg and the most vile political lynching since Clarence Thomas.

Apparently, Ben Shapiro in an effort to make a further mockery of his already worthless reputation has demanded the victims of Kavanaugh's sexual assaults habeas corpus with the Dick Pics or it didn't happen.

Rape-publican Dennis Hastert claims he didn't rape kids

Sorry Coach Denny! You should have denied what you did, like me.
"Heywood, what you in here for?"
"Didn't do it! Lawyer fucked me." - Shawshank Redemption (1994)
Convicted Republican Dennis Hastert must be livid he isn't a member of the modern Trump Republican Party because if he was he would have gotten away with sexually abusing children; like Roy Moore, Gym Jordan, serial rapist Judge Boofer O'Kavanugh and Traitor Racist Rapist Trump themselves did.

During his sentencing, Dennis Hastert apologized for the "boys I mistreated" and "took advantage of" is now claiming he just wanted get the court proceedings over with and maybe his statement is false, “Well, I just don’t know. I’m not sure that my view of it was the same as the people that wrote it. I was overwhelmed with a lot of feelings at that time.”

What a slimy attempt by Hastert to cast doubt without outright denying he did it. If only he knew conservatives digaf (don't give a fuck) if a Republican is a child molester. It's Okay if you're a Republican has been a time honored tradition of the Right, as sexually abusing and adulterous Rape-publican pukes Robert Packwood, Mark Foley, John Ensign, Bob Barr, Henry Hyde and Newt Gingrich could be held up as moral paragons as they pursued President Clinton.

Racist Limbaugh can call for draconian drug laws to be enforced on minority communities while he himself orchestrates a multi-layered criminal drug conspiracy.

On the other hand, when the Libertarians over at Reason found out about Hastert's crimes they were mad! Really Mad! Not at Hastert, but at his blackmailer for breaking the sanctity of the contract and for the FBI for sticking their big snouts into Hastert's private business (i.e. the suspicious payment of funds).

Of course, these days when Rape-publicans are accused of sexual assaults the rightwing wurlitzer springs into action and conservatives take to social media, the airwaves, and launch character assassinations of the victims which are amplified by Faux News and the solidarity of the Republican Party.

If Hastert was accused today, he could simply deny it and rest assured every conservative would vehemently slander his victims, threaten violence against media members reporting, and engage in micro aggressions to trigger the libtards. #OwntheLibs is the whole of the Republican Party.

In Trump America, the Troops (financially) support the President

One of the refrains from the W(worst POTUS Ever) maladministration was, 'Supporting the Troops means Supporting the President', conservatives used it over and over and over to declare anyone who was against the Iraq War or the Cheney Administration "Bush Administration" was anti-American.

It's an effective rhetorical club, that conservatives used repeatedly.

Of course, nooooow you can't find a conservative anywhere who supported Hillary Clinton's Iraq War boondoggle. But, back then being against the Iraq War was Treason!

Today under the Traitor Trump Regime, the Troops are supportin' the President by staying at his resort,
The U.S. Air Force has lodged crews at President Donald Trump’s Scotland resort up to 40 times since 2015, a figure that is far higher than previously known.
Don't expect the revelation to cause any consternation amongst conservatives. But, Trump's fool-proof tweets of nothing to do with me and "Fake News" will ensure Republicans do nothing about this, and after all this makes 'libtards' angry and #OwntheLibs is the whole of the law.

Trump agreed to enact all the Republican policies by requesting the keys to the US Treasury and unfettered access to loot the Department of Defense budget.

Trump wants his Wall so much because it is the crowning theft in his career of thievery, the greatest grift of all-time, it will cement Trump's legacy as the Greatest Grifter who ever was...

Conservative Terrorists can't wait to murder Beto O'Rourke with their AR-15s

If Gun Laws are passed, conservatives have declared en masse they will not follow the Law. There is a name for a group of people who declare they won't follow the law; criminals.

During last night's Democratic Presidential debate, Beto O'Rouke affirmed he would spearhead the passage of laws to curtail the gun violence Republicans have not only ignored but actively encouraged at the behest of their NRA and FSB owners. In response to Presidential Candidate O'Rouke's comments, conservatives, including elected officials, declared they will murder him and anyone else who dares to enforce the law.

The reason conservatives buy so many AR-15s and AK-47 clones is for use on people. Conservatives have been champing at the bit to murder millions of Americans. It's been a rightwing obsession for decades. And in reality for centuries; because the Civil War never ended, conservatives just changed tactics, after they lost the massed lines of battle and maneuver portion of the War. Conservative switched tactics to "Lone Wolf" terrorism attacks and infiltration and subversion of the United States Government from within; funded by Russian pimps and gangsters of late.

Conservatives have a terrible ache, a longing deep down in their shriveled loins, to round-up and kill millions of people; but especially liberals, Democrats, minorities, and any Non-#MAGA they can find. It's been a hallmark of their blackened souls since the 1960s, when conservatives became enraged the Federal Government was trying, ever so tepidly to comfort the afflicted and aid those harmed by right-wingers over the years.

Conservatives have declared they would Rule or Ruin America and last night they plainly stated their threat to reignite the Civil War.

In a Butt, Butina and the Nasty Russian A$$holes

In between (buttween?) polishing the flaccid barrels of NRA members, convicted FSB agent Maria Butina used her honey pot to recruit the Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne into the Hillary Clinton Deep State conspiracy.

Or so he claims...

In reality, in a Butt Butina beguiled the old flabby white men of the NRA who were more than willing to accept millions from the Russian FSB. The number of rightwing dick pics Butina has on her phone and  thus in the hands of her FSB superiors, must have even astounded Vlad Putin. For decades, American conservatives have broadcast across multiple mediums their absolute hatred of liberals and Democrats. The gun nuts especially have been propounding their desire to round-up and murder liberals for 30 years. This information was readily and easily collected, collated and turned into a targeted #Agitprop campaign the NRA readily disseminated across the United States.

Earlier this year, before the Department of Justice requested their 18 month prison sentence on convicted Russian spy Butina, the New Republic ran an article The Spy who Wasn't, wherein they asked her rightwing assets, like Republican criminal Paul Erickson, to vouch for her. Besides being a mouthpiece for the direct dissemination of Rightwing lies the article was a woeful and willful piece of self-delusion
“[David] Keene [former President of the NRA] is a very astute judge of character,” said Erickson. “He spoke to Torshin, got to know him a little bit, and came to decide that Torshin was an honest man, which is rare in Russian politics.” At one point, Keene had invited Torshin to talk to the NRA’s legislative affairs committee in Washington. That, in turn, led to the invitation from Butina that brought Keene and Erickson to Moscow.
Keene was President of the NRA for decades until Oliver North took over, or so Ollie thought... The real power of the NRA has been Wayne LaPierre since 1977 when he moved in Washington DC, after not serving in Vietnam, and became the most powerful lobbyist in American History.

Meanwhile, after Butina made initial contacts with conservatives and those closely aligned with the NRA she began to amass information (the aforementioned dick pics) with which to influence as well as secure the channels so Russian money could flow into the NRA coffers.

So much money from Russian pimps and gangsters flowed into the NRA coffers that Wayne LaPierre was able to feed his $5000-a-day Italian suit habit it also allowed the Russian mob buy the Republican Party.  The NRA became a willing accomplice of the Russian mob to ensure more guns made it onto the streets of the United States and more Americans die. The NRA completed their transformation into a full-fledged Domestic Terrorist Organization.

But, conservatives don't care that Russia owns and controls not only their President, their Kentucky Senators, and the entire Republican Party because the American Right has sought out fascist allies across the Globe in their War on Democrats, the Progressive Era, and the American People. As such, conservatives willingly aligned with Vladimir Putin because they both hate the same people...

Donald Trump & Rudy Giuliani just loved the terrorist attacks of 9-11

Donald Trump looked upon the carnage of 9/11 in the way he leered at underage girls...
"I mean, 40 Wall Street actually was the second-tallest building in downtown Manhattan, and it was actually before the World Trade Center the tallest, and then when they built the World Trade Center it became known as the second-tallest, and now it's the tallest. "
But, worse than Traitor Trump celebrating the attack are his absurd claims to heroism,
"Soon after, I went down to Ground Zero with men who worked for me to try to help in any little way that we could.."
Total bullshit. Complete fabrication. A literal trumped-up story.

Donald Trump's lies about his actions on 9/11/01 would seem to be the bridge too far for even mendacious conservatives. But, it isn't... 9/11 supposedly changed everything. In reality, it just made clear the disjunction in The United States. Conservatives true enemy are the American people and they have declared war on the Progressive era and liberal state.

In such a war conservatives side with any other group of rightwingers across the globe, be they the Taliban or Putin's oligarchs.

"That’s not legal, is it?” the host asked. 
“Of course it’s legal – it’s war,” the Ghoulish Giuliani answered, laughing. “Until the war is over, anything is legal.”
9/11 was a failure of Republican governorship. But, conservatives weaponized their failure, embraced their fascist heritage,  and mobilized for war against the people they truly hate... Americans. The #MAGAt Horde is yearning, aching waiting for Trump to give them the order to round-up and murder millions of people.

Trump loved 9/11, the Taliban, and pisses on the ashes of the WTC dead

Of all the sacred modern conservative shibboleths, September 11, was supreme. Invoked with anger and awe, reverence and rage, 9/11 was too never be forgotten.

So, perhaps it is odd how the Conservative Ubermensch, Donald Trump routinely pisses on the Ashes of 9/11, both back when it happened and currently as President and faces no backlash.

Trump's odious statements and lies about the day that changed everything were once as cheap and tawdry as the man himself. But, now have veered into syphilitic delusions of grandeur and megalomaniacal proclamations of sheer venal mendacity.

Trump praised the Taliban and Al Qaeda for knocking down the Word Trade Center buildings and making Trump Tower the tallest building in New York City.

When the law-breaking ecological monstrosity of Trump Tower in Chicago was being built he demanded it be the tallest building in Chicago, but the design team declined due to terrorism insurance and structural demands necessary post 9/11.

Trump has repeatedly and falsely claimed to have helped first responders at Ground Zero, recently declaring, "I spent a lot of time down there with you." This single disgusting outright lie should be enough to exclude Trump from polite company and ostracize him from America politics and power.

But, lying about 9/11 to #OwntheLibs makes it okay. Always remember conservatives always argue disingenuously.

Now, as the 18th anniversary of the day Republicans utterly failed to defend America approaches, Traitor Trump wants the Taliban to stride triumphantly into the United States so he can prostrate himself before them. If Trump wasn't an enemy asset would you be able to differentiate his actions from someone who was?

Police Officers are the Standing Army the Founding Fathers warned Us about

Attorney General Bill Barr spoke to the Grand Lodge of the Fraternal Order of Police. The FOP  scumbag organization which hand-in-hand with reactionary judges helps shield criminal cops, through such techniques as "Qualified Immunity"... Now I'm not talking about your local Union rep who is a still a lunch pail union organizer but, the Elite Board who enjoy $1000-a-plate dinners and soirées amongst the 1%.

The 1% believe there are only two valid roles for government; the opening up of foreign markets for exploitation and control, and the quelling of domestic dissent. The creation of municipal Policing in America is born of the massive structural changes to society wrought by the Industrial Revolution; in response to three main stimuli; the end of chattel slavery, the influx of large numbers of working class poor from various Slavic and Eastern European Nations, and the rise of densely populated cities of working poor.

For years conservatives used division and had the power of the Government; Federal, State, Local, to keep the minority segments of society down whilst protecting and providing for White America. And then...

Conservatives loathing of the Federal Government began when the government began to protect and aid minorities in the 1960's. Once the US Government began to fulfill the mission of ensuring life and liberty for all Americans, ever so tepidly and ever so intermittently, conservatives became champions of small government. Bill Barr echoes this in his speech,
We live in an age now when the institutions we have relied on to inculcate values and self-restraint have been under constant assault for over 50 years.  As a result, we see about us increased social pathology.
50 years is the tell. Ending segregation. Ending Redlining. Civil Rights, Social Security, and federal protections for blacks and women? Conservatives became enraged. And later...
Starting in the 1960’s, we had gone through three decades of “reform” that turned our criminal justice system into a laughable revolving door.  Incarceration rates dropped precipitously.
Again when did it start? The 1960's. Miranda rights, protections from unlawful search and seizure, weak safeguards against police brutality? That's when
One reason for this is that law enforcement is fighting a different type of war.  We are fighting an unrelenting, never-ending fight against criminal predators in our society.  While there are battles won and lost each day, there is never a final resolution – a final victory is never in sight.
'We are fighting a different type of war'... War... Never-Ending War... It's because conservatives see Police forces as the Standing Army loyal to White Supremacy and enforcing the Reactionary politics of the Republican Agenda of Intolerance and Adulation of the Rich.

Joni Ernst plans to castrate Social Security as Republicans push to destroy the American Dream

The long term dream of the Republican Party has been the elimination of the social safety net and the crushing of the American people.

A key pillar of Republican agenda to remove the hope of retirement and crush the American Dream has been stealing Social Security. George W(worst POTUS Ever) Bush tried to roll the entire SSI into the Stock Market in 2005, this would have been a brilliant move because the 1% would have managed to steal the entire Social Security fund and stave off his Great Recession while simultaneously sending millions of Americans into penury and early deaths.

Republicans want Americans to work until they are too sick, too old, or injured and then die. That's the reason Republicans loathe Obamacare so much, it ensures people will receive at least some medical care instead of losing their entire life savings and then dying quickly as Republicans prefer.

Senator Joni Ernst is apparently the new face of Republican mendacity. Republicans rolled out Joni during the Bart  O'Kavanaugh Supreme Court hearings to talk about her sexual assault. Ernst then dutifully voted to confirm Justice Bart I Love Beer & Rape. Now, Ernst seems to be floated as the new face of the Republican Path to Penury.

Ernst told her Iowa constituents, it's time for some sacrifice,
"How do we sustain Social Security for some of our younger workers? We know that there is a point in time when we as Congress will have to address the situation, and I think it’s better done sooner rather than later, to make sure that we shored up that system. So, it’s a broader discussion for another day. But I do think as various parties and members of Congress, we do need to sit down behind closed doors so we’re not being scrutinized by this group or the other, and just have an open and honest conversation..."
One of the brilliant tactics used by the Republican Party is to inflict pain right now and not worry about the long-term fallout or electoral pushback. Because Republicans know whatever damage they do Now will be forgotten when Election Day rolls around.

Once Republicans get Americans to give up Social Security, it will be gone forever as Republican push their agenda of Oppression, Intolerance, and crushing the American worker into a life perpetual Corporate Bondage and wage slavery.

Alabama Sharpie Hurricane Dorian

Trump has quintupled down on Sharpie-Gate, Hurricane Dorian Gate, The worst of all timelines gate.

Trump was wrong about Hurricane Dorian but, Trump didn't get where he is today, by admitting fault or being wrong, he got here by gaslighting and lying. So, Trump released a patently and ridiculously fake weather map image, including a last minute drawn in by sharpie loop striking Alabama.

This is not what the Greatest Nation in Human history does, this is what a banana Republic with a cult of personality dictatorship does. Of course, one of the two major parties in the United States is the Banana Republicans... so... well here we are...

Jill Wine-Banks points out that Trump's sharpie altered weather map is actually a violation of federal law. But, conservatives have longed for a Dictatorship and will do what they always do; violently believe Trump's lies and tell libtards to suck it, because the only principle guiding the right is #OwntheLibs. Just remember conservative fucking love Trump for his lying and can not wait to vote for him again. Plan accordingly.

Hey, hey NRA how many kids did you kill today?

If it bleeds, it leads...

I don't know why the media even covers Mass Shootings anymore. The causes of gun violence are clear. As are the solutions. More Guns = More Gun Violence. Less Guns = Less Gun Violence. Nightly news should just roll out the body count as they did during Vietnam to indicate how much winning we are doing. 8KIA and 19WIA in Midland, Texas and now for the local feel good story of a child selling lemonade for her cancer treatment here's Chet...

The shootings give Republicans further chances to tell America they are not going to do anything to staunch the flow of blood. Because if it bleeds... it sells more guns. And the more guns that sell the more blood money the NRA and their paid-for politicians make.

I suppose I should include the so-called President's comments,
"As bad as it was, it could have been worse, but it was certainly bad, very very sad situation. So it’s a big problem. It’s a mental problem. It’s a big problem."
In 2017, Traitor Trump and the Republican Party got rid of President Obama's regulation designed to halt gun sales to those adjudicated mentally ill. Because "reasons"... Now Racist Trump can't stop talking about mental health as he claimed "mental illness pulls the trigger" after the Rightwing domestic terrorist killed 22 people and wounded 24 more in El Paso less than a month ago...

On some level the cynic in me would state oh well, but that's exactly the attitude which has allowed the Firearm Industry and Moron Labe gun nuts to dictate the regulation and gun laws in the United States. Unfortunately, as has been observed once conservatives told the country 20 dead kindergartner's at Sandy Hook was the price We were going to have to pay, the gun control debate in America was effectively over.

The Republicans are not going to do anything about Gun Violence in the United States; because they have wedded themselves to the NRA and the policy of unrestricted gun violence but, also because Republicans, whether they admit it or not, are counting on the heavily armed rightwing domestic terrorist acting as a paramilitary enforcement arm for them as they continue to lose elections but, maintain political power.

Right now, conservative "lone wolves" act as a Terror Squad with the implicit backing of the Republican Party. But, perhaps very soon, say when Rapist Trump loses the 2020 election, the Republican Party is going to explicitly and directly call upon their rightwing terrorists to kill people so they can maintain political control of the Nation.

Dave Chappelle, Jussie Smolett and the Only Crime that matters in America

"There ain't a white man in this room that would change places with me. None of you. None of you would change places with me, and I'm rich!" - Chris Rock.
There is only one unforgivable offense in the United States; being black. All other things can be forgiven, as long as you are white and conservative. Immigrating while brown has almost reached the level of unforgivable blackness, but there is no worse crime in America than being black.

Apparently conservatives are trying to put a claim on Chappelle or something. As Dave Chappelle's new Netflix special Sticks & Stones drills down into the "Juicy Smolett" issue. Chappelle's insights are sharp and witty, as befits him, especially his recreation of the Police interview and Nigerian #MAGA hat supremacists but, he also focuses on a little covered aspect of the situation; namely that the African-American community at large was very, very quiet when the details of the so-called racist incident came out.

But, the reason conservatives have such a hard-on to get Jussie Smolett is far less nuanced than Dave Chappelle's insights into America; it's to teach every other black person in America that they are subject to the whims of white America. Destroying Smolett will teach black people that when they get out of line or commit an infraction, white America will never forgive and will never forget and will spend money, time and effort in crushing any black person who dares not bow to White Supremacy.

Sandra Bland learned the lesson in Texas when she was held in a local lock-up for a long weekend and denied bail for the victimless "crime" of not bowing to white authority  to teach her "black ass" a lesson.

Colin Kaepernick aroused the same white hot fury, but Kaep had righteousness and morality on his side and he won. Which only enraged conservatives further. Because underneath all the rightwing complaints about black people protesting wrong, all the tut-tuting over #BlackLivesMatter is the simple truth that conservatives will not accept any protest by black people. Period. And to conservatives Kaep 'got away with it'.

Smolett won't. Jussie is going to learn his lesson and expect his name to be invoked for the next 30 years in the same manner conservatives invoke Al Sharpton and Tawna Brawley. Smolett, in the same way the Duke Lacrosse Rape case, has provided the rightwing with their necessary cover as they continue their campaign of intolerance and oppression; the counter card they will play over and over and over to dismiss the rise in violence by the right towards minority communities.

To conservatives what Smollett did was far worse than Dylann Roof and will be punished by White America far harsher and for decades to come.
