We are fucking DOOMED!
The Democratic Republic that the United States once was is no more. The Republican political machine has cheated and manipulated a grand plan over the last four decades to finally turn this country into an authoritarian fascist theocracy.
We are no better than TURKEY.
Trump and McConnell are busy stacking the courts with young right wing unqualified and biased conservatives asshats. They’ll own the courts just like Erdogan owns the courts in Turkey.
Trump is undermining the reputation of the media at every turn. Erdogan owned the media this last election. Only his ads were allowed to air on TV, radio, newspapers. His opponents got no air time or coverage at all. A Trump wet dream.
Trump is attacking the first amendment. He’s been attacking it since he started campaigning. He’d love to put reporters, late night tv hosts, anyone that criticizes or opposes him in prison. Trump would love him some political prisoners.
Now he is attacking due process. It will start with immigrants and will ooze to naturalized citizens and soon to everyone.
The U.S. has pulled out of the Paris Climate Change Accord. We’re now no longer a member of the U.N. Human Rights organization. And Trump has managed to give the title of Leader of the Free World away to Macron, Merkel and Trudeau. He has made the office of President of the United States into a laughingstock, when people are feeling totally disgusted by it. He has managed to destroy the power of the United States. The U.S. no longer has influence in the world. And he is too stupid to realize what he’s done. He thinks being a bully and making threats is an equivalent substitute for diplomacy.
I’m sure Trump is eyeing a way to suspend the 2020 election (he won’t win) and just continue being President for life. He seems to really love that political model. All his best buddies, the ones he admires, are all authoritarian dictators: Putin, Kim, Erdogan, Duterte. Trump never met a vicious dictator he didn’t like. He’s envious. He wants to be just like them.
And that fuck McConnell is going to give it to him. It’s McConnell’s fault that Merrick Garland was not confirmed.
But it’s the fault of the Democrats for being spineless, wimp-ass bastards, rolling over and peeing political correctness all over themselves, taking the fucking high road. You know how fascism gains hold? When Democrats are TOO FUCKING POLITE. They don’t want to offend anyone and as a result they are walked all over. Alan Grayson knows how to right. He doesn’t is loud and abrasive and doesn’t pull punches or guard his speech. He calls a fucking fascist a fucking fascist. Is it any wonder that the right has the likes of Breitbart and Limbaugh and Alex Jones and there is no liberal counterpart?
And now this.
Kennedy has FUCKED US ALL. It will be 5-4 on the Supreme Court from now on. 5-4 in favor of the oligarchs, the 1%, the right wing, the Talibangelicals. You can kiss Roe v Wade goodbye first thing. Obamacare the second, although that is all but gone as it won’t survive with all of the changes that have been made to undermine and destroy it. Then they’ll be coming for the LGBTQ. After that’s taken care of it will be immigrants (the legal ones this time), minorities, the poor, the sick the old. U.S. citizens will be looking at all sorts of violations of rights we took for granted. No one will be safe without 8 figures in their bank account and a significant stock portfolio.
Kennedy could have retired during Obama’s term. He could have waited six fucking months until all of the Democrats that are going to win in November were seated. But no. That fucking asshole has to retire now so that Trump can pick an unqualified Deplorable and McConnell can push the nomination through at record speed. My money is they’ll have the asshole confirmed by the end of August.
What happens if Ruth Bader Ginsburg dies?
Fuck that Kennedy.
No more swing votes. The court is now completely partisan. They will warp and twist their decisions to benefit corporations and the Republicans, even if it means interpretations of the Constitution the public knows is totally bogus. They’ve already begun. That ruling on the third travel ban was a piece of shit. They refused to hear the case on gerrymandering, allowed voter restrictions and ID laws. And now they’ve screwed the unions. Long a ban of the right, now unions are on the way out. Unions, that made this country strong and gave us a middle class. It’s all downhill now. Just wait until those Deplorables that love to quote the bible but constantly rebel against rendering unto Caesar’s that which is Caesar’s find out they are being screwed because that union they objected paying dues to no longer as the power to negotiate a fair contract for them. Lower pay, no healthcare, no sick leave, no vacation time, NO OVERTIME, unsafe and unhealthy working conditions. You name it and *IF* they still have a job, they’ll be whining about everything they’ve lost. And you watch. They’ll blame the Democrats.
I blame them too. I blame them for being stupid enough to take their eye off the ball and allow the Republicans to gain offices in local and state levels. I blame Democrats for thinking that only congressional seats count. I blame them for losing because they refuse to learn from that dirty Republican playbook and fight back with the exact same tactics. I blame them for being TOO NICE.
So hear we are. A fucking asshole for a president. A nightmare cabinet that is undoing almost a century of protections to the animals, land, water, air and people of this country. A GOP that made this country a laughingstock by putting a senile toddler in the Oval Office just so they’d have an automatic carte blanche signature on everything fucking thing they put under his nose.
And I blame the fucking, uneducated, unintelligent, DEPLORABLE racists, bigots and MORONS that voted this piece of shit into office. No foresight. No ability to see the big picture. Narrow, selfish, ME ME ME interests, not giving a shit how their vote would effect anyone else and not even realizing to what extent they were shooting themselves in the foot.
