Violence is categorically unacceptable as a political tool.
- Republicans in Power in DC: you no longer have any dodge and you no longer have any moral standing on which to rely. Your efforts to cobble together a governance, of, by and for nihilistic, greed driven fat cats has done what it was aimed at all along: created your own, towering Frankenstein’s monster, Agent Orange. Now there is only one choice: stand and be counted for demanding and acting on removal of Trump OR forever go down in the annals of history as proven venal cowards who stood by counting their bribes as the world’s longest experiment in multicultural democracy and constitutional self government was unceremoniously dismembered. You have already demonstrated the behaviors of venal cowardice. Now is the time you can change that impression or confirm its reality as the prime trait of your being.
- (Former) Friends and Acquaintances of a Conservative Bent: I have refrained from talking sides until now. I thought that bridges might be built. It is clear today that your representatives and the Fool in the ‘White House do not want any bridges, nor do they have any interest in democracy or collaboration. If you support them, do not count yourselves any more as friends of mine and do not waste my time with your blabbering drivel.
- Undecided People: are you deaf, dumb and blind? What is there to mull over? the only choice now is: support the domestic political terror or oppose it. But note that when you support that abomination, you are supporting people whose beliefs and actions are the antithesis of the freedom to speak and act that makes your choice possible — and with enough of your support, possible for the last time. Supporting those traitors you may well be participating in the killing of the world’s longest standing experiment in multicultural democracy, a nation that once was at the forefront of establishing government of the people, by the people and for the people across this aching globe. Selling your soul to the devils ask traitors is never a two way bargain in which you take away anything to keep, but the devils take away your soul. So you really want to be eternal losers?
- Agent Orange: the best way to deal with a devil like you is to ignore you. So I am. Tweet on that, birdbrain!
For all but Agent Orange (he is not, never has been and never can be a President of the United States in any way but in title. After all there is nothing to an empty suit but hot air and appearance seeing to persuade you that it is real.): Remember these ominous words from Pastor Martin Niemöller coming down to us from the Thousand Year Reich that lasted 13 years:
First they came for the socialists (today: Mexicans), and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists (today: intellectuals), and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews (today: Democrats), and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
If we do nothing to stop our own bomb sending Nazis, then we are complicit in the collapse of civil democracy, then we are complicit in any harm that comes to anyone from the actions of our own bomb sending nazis. Your collaboration born of complicity will not create a Big Bang for you, but you will do down with a whimper. No? Just look at the pictures of Germany in late April, 1945.
