Beware going to Trump Rallies

"I've hurt you and I wish to go on... hurting you." - Conservative Idol Khan Noonien Singh
Current Conservative idealogy is based on the infliction of pain. Conservatives want to hurt people. They are blinded by Rage at their economic condition and falling standard of living and have absorbed the right-wing media propaganda that steak-eatin' young bucks and mexican rapists are to blame for their woes.

They lustfully cheer the murder of unarmed black americans. They whole-heartedly approve the pepperspraying and beating of leftist protesters. They applaud the demonization of muslims and mexicans. They push legislation to disenfranchise members of the LGBTQ community. They support the destruction of Unions and the theft of Teachers pensions. They vote to eliminate medicaid, Obamacare, and Social Security even though conservatives disportionally benefit from those federal programs.

In short, they want those whom they've been conditioned to believe have stolen the American Dream, to be hurt. There are a myriad number of reasons for conservative rage; belief in biological determinism and right-wing propaganda efforts top the list. However, normally Republican politicans don't stoke the rage directly; they appeal to it sideways and make obique veiled references to "the other" while allowing Hate Talk Radio, Faux News, and the right-wing internet to fan the flames of violence and do the heavy lifting of conditioning.

But, in this election the savvy Donald Trump emerged and threw the Republican gentleman's agreement out when he told conservatives to unleash their Id, to indulge in violence, that he will pay their legal fees, while he bemoaning the fact you can't just shoot the other anymore. So, begins the violence at Trump Rallies.
  • Trump's campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski has been charged with Battery after he man-handled a Breitbart "reporter". I'm sure it was a shock for the young lady as working for Breitbart she hates all the right people and was no doubt at the Trump Rally to give his Make America Great Again fascism a glowing review.
  • Matthew Vadum (who wrote in 2012 "Registering them [the Poor] to vote is like handing out burglary tools to criminals. It is profoundly antisocial and un-American")  tweeted out a threat to protesters that conservatives have millions of guns.
  • The old white male conservative Trump supporter who contected with an elbow strike on a non-violent black man calmly being escorted out of a Trump Rally in North Carolina threatened, "The next time we see him we might have to kill him."
  • Another white male Trump supporter in Cleveland invoked the most infamous Nazi death camp, repeatedly telling protesters to "Got to fucking Auschwitz", while throwing up the Nazi salute.
  • Nazi salutes and white power shouts are ubiquitous at Trump rallies. A older white German immigrant Trump lover threw the Nazi salute up at protesters. Trump Junior then tweeted out the name of Bernie Sanders supporter and claimed she was the one who did it. Until that woman threatened to sue and it was proven to be a fervent Trump fan and little Trump Junior tweeted a 'My bad I got bad info' non-apology apology.
  • PBS, ran a shockingly obtuse story, on a white South Carolina woman sporting white power tattoos all over her exposed arms and neck who claimed for the first time in her life she and her family was campaigning for a political candidate (i.e. Trump).
  • A black active duty Air Force serviceman beat up a protester being escorted out.
  • In the latest incident in Wisconsin, a young white male douche bearded Trump supporter pepper-sprayed a female juvenile who claimed an older gray haired white man groped her. After spraying into a crowd the the man walked off with the smug look of satisfaction at hurting a leftist. But, while blinded with the spray a different older white male Trump supporter yelled, "You goddamn Communist n*gger lover. Get out of here!"
The times change but the American Conservative does not. So, while I agree in protesting Trump and his modern day fascist rallies be aware that conservatives have a longing deep down in their bowels to hurt everyone whom their identify as Left or "the Other" and the Republican Party, which has been feeding this right-wing beast for electoral victories, can no longer restrain them.

So, if you do go to protest Trump, remember the conservatives present are going there praying for a confrontation and are, most likely, armed. And when conservatives walk around with weapons it's not with the hope they won't have to use them, it's with the fervent desire that they will get to use them.

Most of us who read your blog know all this to be true already. I am curious what benefit comes from preaching to the choir? Conservatives are for the most part ignorant and bigoted. That is a historical fact. Evangelical bible thumping morons who have never actually read the bible or the constitution but are prepared to defend both to the death. Fanatics desperately trying to find a place to call home. I see the current state of affairs to be a good thing. It is past due that they showed their true colors. Perhaps, they will self destruct and the country will finally be free of the yoke of their oppression. Let them have their last hurrah.

Mohaverat, I know anyone reading this probably already knows but, emotions are not going to go down. I'm worried the "last hurrah" you mention is going to be deadly because the right is looking for any excuse to unleash bloodshed and use it to steal another election.

You know, occasionally people wander into blogs without a lot of interest or grounding in politics. That's what we bloggers at least like to think, even though in many cases we are preaching to a choir of "regulars". I don't mind doing that one bit. I see it as getting your electrons out there for "posterity" (as well as being an exercise in stress relief!). Since my brother and I have been coming here the last few years, we always enjoy the careful synthesis of your observations and the passion you write with. So, keep preachin', Gene!

W. Hackwhacker,
Thanks as always for your thoughts! Keep going with your fantastic blog as well!

I see your point Gene. A tragedy of some kind is entirely possible and would help coverup the hidden political manipulations. I see what can only be described as "insanity". I share your concern....We are already poised for a potential race war, we don't need some egotistical idiot with a bad comb over inciting lowlifes into racially motivated acts of violence. Dark days lie ahead my friend...

No problems. I deal with Road Rage, Battery's (Domestic and otherwise) DCs, and confrontations everyday on the job. Often I tell the victim or those involved in the incident it's usually not worth it. You don't know what the other person is capable of or carrying.

In this case we are dealing with a group of people who proudly sport Liberal Hunting Permit bumper stickers on the vehicles. And specifically with this smug suspect a "man" who brought pepper-spray to a huge rally.

Anyone whose been sprayed (I have) or been in a fight when OC spray has been used (I have) knows that others almost always get hit with its' effects as well. Yet, he had no compulsion in deploying it into a crowd, in which at least one other woman got hit.

If this smug suspect believes he's innocent of any wrong doing and righteous in his battery he'd be bragging about this incident and arranging spots with Sean Hannity but, his silence indicates he knows he was not in the right and thinks he's going to be charged. Of course, conservatives are such wimps this punk will no doubt cry about PC culture and how he's being victimized by the mean nasty Media.

Nonetheless, I can not see the violence ratcheting down and with the byzantine maneuvers the GOP is going to pull at the Cleveland Convention might lead to a full scale riot and right-wing domestic terror attacks across the Nation.

Fear mongering again?

Glen Filthie said...

Not fear mongering. More like old age and stupidity.

Michelle Fields was nudged in a media scrum by Corey Lewanowsky. The event was caught on tape and the hoax was exposed. Apparently none of the liberal wanks on day time TV mentioned it out of fear of beclowning themselves, and the seniors aren't computer literate enough to catch the viral videos involved.

As for that fat stupid bubble gummer that got pepper sprayed...she actually tried to punch out a Trump supporter before she got zapped in the face with the pepper spray. It's a matter of public record.

I think we need to re- evaluate the right to vote for seniors too. What happens when people get too old, stupid and stubborn to inform themselves? How can they be expected to vote like responsible adults?

Glen, as you know nothing about the law, nothing about the police, and we're not present at either incident you wrote about your comment is poop.
