Do you remember a couple of months ago when I wrote:
“Professors, former members of President Obama’s staff and journalists have been warning us since last year: the far-right domestic terrorist groups have been emboldened by the OB (orange buffoon) and have been ramping up activities, both online and in public. If OB loses, and refuses to hand over power, what happens?’
“What do you do when there is a baby bully in a position of power and has, arguably, the largest platform for change available, and he is refusing to “get out of the crib” without disrupting everything around it?”
Did you really think I was blowing smoke?
WHY DID IT TAKE THE MILITARY AND NATIONAL GUARD SO LONG TO MOBILIZE??
You have known for months, weeks, days and have absolutely no excuse whatsoever to say “we didn’t know” or “we didn’t think this would happen.” Really?
You know this behaviour is tantamount to Treason. And the last time I checked, Treason was punishable by death in the good ole U.S. of A.
If this were the Black Lives Matters protestors, (who quite frankly know better), we would be having a very different conversation and you would be reading a profanity-laced, insult-ridden blog about the Orange Buffoon and his cronies.
Oh wait – I forgot, the very fact that I call him the Orange Buffoon is insulting in and of itself.
Sorry not sorry. There are no other words for an over-indulged, not-spanked-enough-megalomaniacal, nihilistic, spoilt-brute-of-a-child-ignoramus-bigoted-racist who behaves as though the world owes him a favour and he won’t stop till he gets what he wants.
Nor will he stop until he has destroyed the process and functionality of democracy and delegitimized honest folk who voted their consciences.
If Donald Trump wins the next U.S. Election, will there be another American Civil War?
Does that scare you? It should…
When a sitting U.S. President refuses to denounce white supremacy, in front of a live, national and international audience, it’s tantamount to condoning the same. That he told a group to “Stand by and stand back,” when he ought to have told them to disband — because they are constitutionally illegal — should scare you. That he waited till the next day to clarify his meaning is cowardly and undignified.
We have so much going on right now. We have people, globally, dying. We are globally a sick planet. Globally, all the measures we have taken to reduce, reuse, recycle, have taken a back step to Covid. Globally, covidiots are ruling the roost and ruining things for the rest of us. This virus is unlike anything we have known in all of human history. If you haven’t taken it seriously yet, do so now please. The request that you mask up and keep your bubbles small is not a restriction or removal of your freedoms. You are being asked to do so in order to safeguard your freedoms. (also, you should read your constitution because you will learn that in times of great danger, your freedoms can be abridged and removed all together.)
We have had to come to terms with living in a racist world. Not only have we lived in it, many stood by and watched because not of all you are BIPOC. (Black, Indigenous, People of Colour.)
America and the world should wake up to the fact that the Orange Buffoon in the White House, is in fact, and in deed, a white supremacist and bigoted racist. That he paid less in taxes than 90% of you, and is so indebted to his creditors, should concern you.
What would you do if you were broke, in debt, property rich and cash poor, facing law suits you couldn’t get out of, and threatening to run for president every chance you got? Would you not run for a seat in which your housing, transportation, meals, clothing and well being were paid for by the tax payers? It seems like an evil genius move to me!
So let me get back to the Civil War statement. Professors, former members of President Obama’s staff and journalists have been warning us since last year: the far-right domestic terrorist groups have been emboldened by the OB (orange buffoon) and have been ramping up activities, both online and in public. If OB loses, and refuses to hand over power, what happens?
You may think I, and others, are “blowing smoke.” I think the Governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer, would disagree. Six men have been arrested for allegedly trying to kidnap and threatening to kill her. Those six men are allegedly linked to the far right militia organizations.
The OB said recently “liberate me.” What in hemoglobin and haberdashery is this? He has constantly stated there is voter fraud happening everywhere. There is no evidentiary proof of this at all. Yet, if the OB loses, and says to his followers, “take to the streets,” do you really think this will be a quiet demonstration?
On October 08, 2020, Global News, on their website, reported “Polls south of the border indicate a growing number of Americans on both sides of the political spectrum feel violence would be justified if the other side wins the election.” **
Why? Why does there have to be violence? Why is it that tv-educated, rural-living, shot-gun-toting-holier-than-thou white people feel their views are the only ones that matter? And why do they feel America belongs to them?
It never belonged to them. Ask the Indigenous peoples who descended from those from whom that land was stolen, how they feel every time they hear “this is our country.” Ask the descendants of African Americans who built the country through their slavery.
If the OB has a problem with the ballots, show us the evidence, number one. Number two, come up with a solution that is satisfactory to all parties. The OB is saying “don’t count the ballots because it’s all fake news anyway.” So how does he think the election will happen?
What do you do when there is a baby bully in a position of power and has, arguably, the largest platform for change available, and he is refusing to “get out of the crib” without disrupting everything around it?
You begin with Education Reform. You begin with the 50% of minorities who did not vote in the last election. Get up! Get out! Go vote! because what happens in your country affects mine– and I am so sick of hearing the complaints from your side of things. If you didn’t vote in the last election, don’t complain. Do better. Register yourself and go and bloody vote. This is your opportunity for betterment. Don’t be like the OB in the crib.
You also begin by tasking those representatives who care about betterment, to better represent you. You take to Congress and hold them to task because you put them there- so let them start earning your vote. You place your trust, however little is left, in the other institutions that should act as a check and balance against tyranny – like the Supreme Court.
You also begin by masking up and keeping your bubbles small. If you protect yourself, others will follow. This isn’t forever, it’s for the extended now. Stay safe.
I will pray and wish and hope for betterment for all of you because, that, more than anything, is what we all need. We don’t need an orange-faced buffoon who thinks his way is the holy way. Ask him what his passport is worth now.
