Talk about politics and brain damage!

I would like to thank Stephen Colbert for reminding me of this turn-of-the-century video:

Since the mango tango combover and former mayor bald spot are encouraging people to go on the Internet for proof that Hillary Clinton is too frail to be president, it’s only fair for others to encourage people to go on the Internet for proof that these guys shouldn’t be within a five Zip code range of the White House.

Hence:

As for Giuliani, he swears Clinton has brain damage. But keep this in mind. He also said this:

You cannot be more brain damaged than this, right? Something pretty big happened in those eight years before Obama.  I think Joe Biden said it best:

 

Trump supporters in action: These are bad people

I can’t criticize enough the skid mark in an IBS sufferers underwear who’s also the Republican nominee for president, but let’s take a look at his supporters;

Like this guy:

Daniel Rowe was apparently enraged at the sight of a black man and a white woman kissing on the streets of Olympia, Wash., Tuesday night. But police say he hid his violent intent behind a stony face until he was close enough to strike. …

Rowe, 32, walked up to the couple and, without warning, yelled a racial slur and lunged with his knife, police say. The blade grazed the woman and went into the man’s hip, according to a news release from Olympia police.

No one involved had life-threatening injuries, but police said Rowe’s behavior grew stranger as officers tried to wrestle him into the back of a patrol car.

“He tells them, ‘Yeah, I stabbed them. I’m a white supremacist,’” Lower said. “He begins talking about Donald Trump rallies and attacking people at the Black Lives Matter protest.”

And officers were scratching their heads at Rowe’s comments about fighting Black Lives Matter during a Donald Trump rally. Neither had events planned in Washington this week.

An aberration, some Trump supporters would say? OK, then what about this:

A Massachusetts convoy of Trump supporters drove from Wrentham to Foxboro in their trucks, RVs and SUVs on July 31 and were caught on tape spewing racist epithets and calls for anti-black violence.

“Lynch the ni**ers by their d*cks!” said one driver, according to Winning Democrats, which highlighted a YouTube video of what the “Make America Great Again” convoy talked about on its CB channel when they thought no one was listening.

“Burn every single ni**er!” said another driver.

“All I know is we got plenty of trees to hang ni**ers from,” said another.

The convoy drove five miles from one township to another with their U.S. and Confederate flags waving.

Another aberration? Maybe you didn’t see this:

Donald Trump has a new obsession: comparing Hillary Clinton to Angela Merkel, the chancellor of Germany. During a Monday speech, Trump denounced the “massive immigration” to Germany under Merkel, for which he blames crime rising “to levels that no one thought would they would ever see.” He followed up this speech with press releases and a hashtag aimed at equating Clinton and Merkel. …

To white nationalist communities that fervently support Trump, Merkel has been a popular villain. Sites like the Daily Stormer, the White Genocide Project, American Renaissance, and The White Resister have posted constantly about her since the Syrian refugee crisis began escalating earlier this year. They have accused her of making a “deliberate attempt to turn Germany from a majority White country into a minority White country.” They have called her a “crazy childless bitch,” an “anti-White traitor,” and “a patron saint of terrorists.” They have asked, in articles about Merkel, “Why would you allow a woman to run a country, unless you were doing it as a joke?” …

It’s yet another example of how Trump is mainstreaming white supremacist sentiment. But by making two women the center of an attack, he is also highlighting the way that antifeminism and white supremacy are tied into each other, since people in alt-right, white supremacist circles like to blame feminism for what they see as the “decline” of the white race.

If you haven’t noticed it already, some people are pointing out that these instances are just examples of Trumpism. That’s a lie. This is the base of the Republican Party. And when the  human urinal cake gets his ass kicked by a girl in November, when you hear the talk about the repudiation of Trumpism, replace that made up word with what it really is: core Republican belief.

And don’t think the losers have integrity and would never do anything like that. It happened when Barack Obama was elected president, and instead of pointing out that people saying “I want my country back” were Republicans, they were deceptively called “Tea Party Patriots.” Don’t believe me?

The ultimate GOP rewrite of history

I can’t believe the words coming out of Rudy Giuliani’s mouth:

What the hell did he just say? In the eight years “before Obama came along, we didn’t have any successful radical Islamic terrorist attack in the United States.” Am  I dreaming? Was he not the fucking mayor of New York City on Sept. 11, 2001?

This is Republican rhetoric at its purest form. The country today is a bleak hellscape because nothing bad happened until  Barack Obama became president.

Let’s go through the list of Republican “truths”:

  1. The economy was in great shape before Obama took office:

2. The stock market was running on all cylinders until Obama was elected:

3. The auto industry was booming and its jobs were secure until  Barack Obama screwed it up:

4. There were no natural disasters before Obama took office:

5. Obama doesn’t deserve any credit for capturing Osama bin Laden:

6. And now, there were no terrorist attacks on American soil before the Kenyan usurper with the fake birth certificate moved into the White House:

What the hell is wrong with Giuliani? What the hell is wrong with people in the GOP base who believe all these lies? Do they really think you can erase history just by saying the things that happened didn’t happen?

Obviously, they do.

And that’s why Republicans selected a habitually lying. moldy, worm-infested tangerine for their presidential candidate, and why deep in their reptilian brains they thrive on campaign rhetoric that reinforces their view that the Democratic opponent is a crooked, lying bitch.

Whatever happened to the truth?

Trump’s second amendment remedies, in context

A followup on the cinnamon dipstick’s speech yesterday when he suggested “second-amendment people” make sure Hillary Clinton doesn’t get to name judges.

“If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is I don’t know.”

Back in late 2010/early 2011, Sarah Palin posted the following map, pointing out people in Congress who supported President Obama’s health care bill:

palintargetlist2 Look at the gun sights on the map, then look at the fourth name from the top in the left hand column.

In January 2011, a psychopath with a gun went to a “meet your congresswoman” rally in Tucson and proceeded to shoot 18 people, killing six, including a nine-year-old girl. He also put a bullet in Gabby Giffords’s head.

Sarah Palin’s staffers ran scared, with a lame-ass “it wasn’t our fault” response on Palin’s target map. Rebecca Mansour, who worked for Palin’s political-action committee, said, “We never ever, ever intended it to be gun sights,” in a interview with conservative radio host Tammy Bruce.

“It’s a surveyor’s symbol,” Bruce suggested. Mansour agreed, adding that the graphic was contracted out to a professional and approved without much thought. “We never imagined, it never occurred to us that anybody would consider it violent,” she said. It was simply “crosshairs that you would see on a map.”

There is “nothing irresponsible about our graphic,” Mansour added.

By the way, Palin had described it as a target map.

Giffords has this to say about Trump’s speech.

Trump knows what he said, his staffers know what he said and his supporters know what he said. Everything they say about twisting his words is bullshit.

The orange clown is dangerous

There’s a line in “The Dark Knight” when the butler, Alfred, is telling Bruce Wayne a story about a bandit in Burma who stole jewels:

We have such a man running for president of the United States.

We’ve already gone through the atrocities he’s already committed, drawing a target on the backs of blacks, Hispanics and Muslims, encouraging his band of followers to attack whenever these groups are seen.

We’ve already noted his call for riots in Cleveland if he didn’t get the Republican Party’s nomination, even though he’d sewn it up weeks in advance.

We’ve already pointed out that he’s already planted the seeds for delegitimizing the inevitable victory of his Democratic opponent, telling the gullible that if he doesn’t win, it’s proof that the election is rigged and they should do what they can to overturn the results.

Hell, the crimson-haired Joker threw a crying baby out of his rally because it was making too much noise.

That, we thought, was as low as he could go.

And then today, he went lower:

The mogul said that [Hillary] Clinton “wants to abolish, to essentially abolish the Second Amendment,” a charge she has flatly denied. He said that if Clinton becomes president, she could appoint judges who would leave Americans nearly helpless on this front.

“By the way, and if she gets to pick — if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks,” Trump warned. “Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.”

His minister of propaganda says he isn’t saying what you think he’s saying:

Trump campaign senior communications adviser Jason Miller released a statement shortly after the comment, swatting down the idea that the mogul was suggesting any form of violence.

“It’s called the power of unification — 2nd Amendment people have amazing spirit and are tremendously unified, which gives them great political power,” Miller said in the statement. “And this year, they will be voting in record numbers, and it won’t be for Hillary Clinton, it will be for Donald Trump.”

No! Fuck that. The asshole is saying if you want to stop Hillary from taking your guns, use your guns to stop her. Everyone knows that’s what he means. There isn’t any glimmer of an idea that he’s saying people should get together and vote against her. Very simply, if she’s picking judges, that means she’s been elected president.

This isn’t an “act before the election” message, this is an “act after the election if I don’t win” message.

And don’t think the crowd listening to him didn’t know what he meant:

Look at the faces of the people behind him. They know what he’s saying. And add to that, he is blatantly lying when he says they’re tied in the election. Hillary currently is kicking his ass and sees an opportunity to take Arizona, Georgia and Utah in November, something you couldn’t even imagine six months ago.

Forty-two years ago yesterday, Richard Nixon resigned as president, the result of the Watergate coverup orchestrated from the White House. Even in Nixon’s scumbaggiest moments, I could never imagine him approaching the depths of depravity that Donald Trump leisurely strolls through every day of his existence.

He has gone beyond the arena of the clown into the realm of super villain. Donald Trump is the Joker. And he wants to see the world burn:

 

 

This happened 71 years ago today

On Aug. 6, 1945, 140,000 people were killed when the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan.

Meanwhile, the Republican party has nominated a rust-colored ball of gas posing as a human who wonders why we build nuclear weapons if we’re not going to use them:

This coming election means something, folks. Take it seriously.

From the man who brought you Sarah Palin

John McCain, the Republican senator from Arizona who lost enormously to Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential election, had this to say about the GOP’s annoying orange running against Hillary Clinton:

“While our Party has bestowed upon him the nomination, it is not accompanied by unfettered license to defame those who are the best among us,” McCain said. “I hope Americans understand that the remarks do not represent the views of our Republican Party, its officers, or candidates.”

And I hope Americans do understand that every one of those remarks truly represent the views of the Republican Party, its officers, it candidates and especially its constituents.

Are we not to notice that Donald Trump was selected by Republican voters as their presidential candidate by an overwhelming margin? As he says, he’s their voice.

Are we not to notice that when every Republican took the stage in Cleveland to spout their  anger, fear and hatred, that was the voice of the Republican Party?

And are we not to notice that during the entire campaign, every time Trump insulted Muslims, hispanics, blacks, Jews, Asians and women, the crowd squealed like a pig because he was putting it to them like the hillbilly on Ned Beaty in “Deliverance.”

I guess the guy to gave the world Alaska’s Mooselini is blinding himself to the fact that the folks who loved Sarah Palin so much are the same people who back the GOP’s embodiment of its id.

And while I’m thinking about the annoying orange:
