For those with a moral center, Trump, like Bush 41 causes a feeling of overwhelming shame. OK, a short story. Last Sunday, here in Grand Haven, there was a “religious” concert at our waterfront amphitheater. Normally, it’s bad cover bands, or people watching the musical fountain.
The crowds were very high for a small town, maybe 4000, 100% white but that comes with the territory. Many had driven quite a distance; Grand Haven is entirely white, but it is also wealthy with a high education level, except for the Chicago “summer people” with their huge boats.
A woman was in a wheelchair speaking to the throng; they filled the stadium and the lawns nearby as well. I know petty hucksters and cons when I see them, and this was a “100%’er” and beyond. The language was a mix of references to spiritual healing and the diseases that Jesus cured her of – bad colds, chickenpox, mosquito bites…Jesus is a busy guy, spending all his time keeping this monstrosity from falling down the stairs or getting caught shoplifting.
Lots of collecting of money went on, as shills worked the crowd. Then the music came, the “god music,” bland white fake rock with continual psycho-sexual references, though barely shielded, to masturbation and submission to bestiality. These fake Christians are a sick lot.
Looking at the crowd, I felt as though I had made it into either a Fellini film or a Hunter Thompson “Fear and Loathing” novel. I also got a hit of Don Genaro’s narrative in Castaneda’s Journey to Ixtlan, where Genaro describes a dream where he travels from town to town but finds only people who want to eat him, a dream world of cannibals.
Genaro finishes his narrative by explaining that he hasn’t awakened yet…the dream is still going on. Jerzy Kosiński’s Painted Bird is similar — all are works that should be “must reads” for generations that would rather eat human flesh. Fellini really had it right, from Satyricon:
I actually felt violated; and last weekend, we had 30,000 tourists in town, however, whose purchases fund the endless free crap the city builds for the rest of us.
The truth of it, the GOP exists primarily based on a venal hatred and revulsion felt by America’s most primitive people when they see African Americans.
It isn’t just the cartoons put together by the Heritage and Jamestown Foundations, always depicting our darker bothers as apes.
Oh, you didn’t know the “big Jewish money” that goes to the GOP pays for Nazi rallies? You do now, and, no, we aren’t making this up.
It is worse, so much worse, but why mention it? “Shocking and disgusting truth” means nothing anymore.
Second to this is hate of Jews or, as Republicans call them, “rat-faced Jews.” Lots of Americans could be described as “rat faced,” but mostly those of German ancestry actually. It is just a shape of head and nose common to people who live around the Baltic.
Some of them are Jews, since Jews are Germans and Poles mostly with no Middle Eastern or Arab blood, and by that we mean “Semitic” blood — and yes, we can prove that. OK, not “none”, but damned few.
This ignorance and hate thing with Republicans that makes African Americans, Jews, Muslims, educated people, the non-insane, feel uncomfortable and ashamed is perhaps the biggest problem of our time.
It didn’t start with Trump, he simply tapped into it. Every Republican does; and I know this well, as I have been a member of the RNC for 33 years, some of that time at the highest levels…until my ability to digest filth proved inadequate. I am still asked to come back…by the White House, if only I were kidding. Don’t they read VT? Or, they think I’m kidding?
The assumption I will make is this, that the majority of evangelical christians are insane and simply not very good people. Few of them travel outside the US. Not all of them are criminals; but they show on a regular basis a willingness to back war, corruption, mass murder, and to abandon any of the teachings of christ, if he actually existed, for the ramblings of charlatans, hucksters and hatemongers. Inside these are small and venomous little toads, vile and disgusting.
You see, a real human sees children, regardless of race or ethnicity, sees people as human and tries to limit human suffering.
The fake christianity that has infected America plays on Freud’s “id.” It is sexual in nature and lives off debasement — feeding on the reptilian brain that, if allowed, seems to take control.
If a busload of black children goes over a cliff, they cheer. The idea of AIDS makes them cheer, as does Ebola. They love to bomb, and if it is hospitals and schools, always Israeli favorites, all the best.
Behind this, of course, they hate Jews. Jews are often Eastern European, over-educated, nasty “elites” who own businesses, practice law and medicine, like America’s Islamic population. Jews are “christ killers” whom the secret hero of evangelicals, Adolf Hitler, sought to remove from the gene pool.
The love of Hitler is behind it all but, as we learn about Hitler more and more, evangelical christians might well hate him too. He liked children, he had a dog, and his level of hate was well below their standards. You see, Hitler was actually a combat veteran, someone with beliefs, albeit misguided…and “evangelicals” mostly take and take.
What kind of people are they really? Many have sex with their own children. Many use drugs but do so secretly — heroin, methamphetamine. America’s most evangelical christian areas, Kentucky, Tennessee, Arkansas, are largely rural, where crime is well beyond levels in any city. Older people sit in their homes waiting for roving bands of, yes, evangelical christians” to break into their homes and rob them.
Americans buy guns to protect themselves from two things — crooked police and, wait for it, evangelical christian scum. From Reuters:
The national survey, conducted on Monday and Tuesday after Trump told the lawmakers they should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came,” showed his net approval among members of his Republican Party rose by 5 percentage points to 72%, compared with a similar poll that ran last week.
Trump, who is seeking re-election next year, has lost support, however, with Democrats and independents since the Sunday tweetstorm.
Among independents, about three out of 10 said they approved of Trump, down from four out of 10 a week ago. His net approval – the percentage who approve minus the percentage who disapprove – dropped by 2 points among Democrats in the poll.
Trump’s overall approval remained unchanged over the past week. According to the poll, 41% of the U.S. public said they approved of his performance in office, while 55% disapproved.
The results showed strong Republican backing for Trump, as the Democrat-led U.S. House of Representatives passed a symbolic resolution on Tuesday, largely along party lines, to condemn him for “racist comments” against the four Democratic lawmakers.
All four U.S. representatives – Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan – are U.S. citizens. Three were born in the United States.
