The Ranter’s Guide To Understanding Donald Trump, And In A Strange Way, America Too
What follows here is a seemingly random series of rants that I wrote on Facebook over the past couple of weeks. What it actually turns out to be is a rather obtuse attempt to understand the America psyche through trying to get to understand somebody like Donald Trump.
I have never liked Donald Trump. He is a smug, arrogant, entitled bastard who has got it into his head that he can bullshit his way into the White House the same way he’s bullshitted his way to whatever dubious business success he has had.
I have been editorializing and outright ranting about him for a year now. Trying to warn people that they are being hoodwinked. But in the process I have developed some understanding about him. It didn’t change my opinion, but it did make me realize what his real agenda here was.
These are the last six mini-torials I wrote about him.
The Political Structure or Lack Thereof
Republican politicians in the US used to be just, you know, square headed pro business types, which was fine. A dirty job but somebody had to do it.
Now a bunch of them are turning into complete assholes.
And all because they were stupid and wimpy enough to allow themselves to be manipulated by Donald Trump. And all because, underneath the surface, they are racist bigots, who put the obstructionist agenda ahead of everything else, including the people they supposedly represented.
I hope they get creamed in the senate and congressional races, along with their Fuhrer. It will be the sweetest revenge of all for the people they have neglected for the past eight years. And it will create a government that can actually function instead of a bunch of crooks who work for special interest perks.
“Within A Year, Donald Trump Will Be In Jail”
In 6 days the US election will be over. And a whole new round of bullshit will start. Trump has to answer racketeering charges, election rigging, statutory rape charges and a bunch of other stuff.
Wouldn't it be poetic justice if he won and had to go into the slammer? Making America Great Again From The Hoosgow.
At least he would learn a few things about the penal system. And who knows, he might even find true love in there. We can only hope.
I've pretty much become convinced that a great many Americans have gone insane and it's up to the sane people there to step up and pull their country back from the abyss.
The BandAid On The Knife Wound
This crap is the best the Republicans could come up with. This is because they don't have two creative brain cells to rub together.
They are shallow and hollow & full of shit just like their fearless leader, pictured here looking a lot less spooky than he is. They say nothing with a lot of sound and fury. They live in an alternative dimension where women are pussies, blacks are ni**ers, hispanics are wetbacks & spics, gays are faggots & Muslims are ragheads.
If this is the kind of people you want running your country America, then you are everything they are and worse.
The Media Enablers or Disablers
I am studiously avoiding network news until this election is over. I am so fucking tired of hearing these assholes spinning this out to its last dying breath.
There is no honor left in the world of news. They're all sluts, taking home a million or more a year for basically speaking whatever bullshit their overlords tell them to speak. Obedient to the end.
If Trump gets elected president, which I highly doubt, he will fail. He will fail quickly and he will fail hard. The Generals will not take orders from him, because the US adheres to the Geneva Convention. The civil service will not organize the building of a wall, nor will they establish the massive deportation force that is required to get rid of all the illegals and Muslims. And if they are forced to, they will take years to get it together, working to rule.
There will be mutiny everywhere because you just can't take orders from a lunatic and figure out some way to sleep at night.
Even if there is a Republican congress, it's doubtful they will pass any of the ridiculous shit Trump is proposing. Impeachment within the first 100 days almost guaranteed. The country is already more than 20 trillion in debt...the last thing they need is for that to double. Wake up America. This guy is in way over his head. All he does is talk. Talk. Talk.
The Igloo Perspective
One of the most remarkable differences between Canadians and many Americans is that we can all look at Donald Trump, listen to his rhetoric and see what is basically a sick puppy out to prove that he can control a whole country.
We see this with such astonishing clarity that it makes us wonder what the hell it is that any rational person could possibly perceive to be redeeming social value in Trump. Yet millions of people are supporting him, and passionately.
He has turned those millions of people into haters. He has brought out many of the primal urges they had been able to suppress. He has turned them into less affluent versions of what he is.
And the media, who have put greed over decency, have given him all the exposure he needs to make this all happen.
Trump has basically run a sharp blade right through the fabric of American society, and as Canadians we see, that even if he loses this election, which is more than a probability, he will have essentially ruined the country to gratify his own monstrous ego.
This is a sad time for America and I'm sure most Canadians are heartbroken to see it happening.
What Makes Donald Run
I was watching the Passionate Eye doc on Trump and Hillary Clinton and it occurred to me that, over the decades, a great many people in America have sacrificed the human side of their personalities in pursuit of money, power and fame.
Donald Trump, is one of these people.
He was raised to be a 'killer'. To win any any cost. Lying, cheating, stealing and gaming the system are nothing more than the tools of his trade.
All this personality defect is thinly disguised under his 'business mogul' persona. But at the end of the day, he's just a pathetic soul who spent his entire life trying to prove that he can play the twisted game of ruthless capitalism better than his father did.
But to anyone who has been spared the agony of having to live up to their father's ideals it seems like such a colossal waste of a life. If he loses this election he could end up in a psycho ward, because it could just break him into a bunch of small pieces.
You can agree or disagree with what I have just written. A lot of people have written worse. I don’t believe that Trump, as vocal as his supporters might be, has enough support, real and electoral college-based, to win this election.
But other than shine a bit of a spotlight on the corruption of government, which I would argue we all knew anyway, what has he really done outside of promoting an agenda that is decidedly fascist, run a campaign that has been powered by lies, innuendo, fiction and self-delusion and divide the country more deeply than it has ever been divided?
If I thought for a moment that his agenda was about more than his own compulsive need for recognition, I would applaud him.
But honestly, all you have to do is listen. All you will hear is the empty sound of a master salesman selling snake oil for money that goes into his pocket and only his.
