Hey, I was up writing Part 2 of this series until 6:30 AM, and, before getting to Part 3, I want to elaborate on something I wrote there: “This so-called populist champion [Trump] is actually there to roll back all of Obama’s social reforms and consolidate a ruling class among the wealthy elite.” In true Trumpian fashion, I want to double-down on that statement. The fact that Trump is now supporting child predator Roy Moore just reveals how devoid of moral values he really is, and how focused he is on one Priority.
So, at the risk of sounding like Tom Steyer’s little brother, I want to state the obvious: that nothing else matters to Trump and his cohorts except their money. It is the only thing they have that makes them special, it is the substance of their selves, their identities – take that away, and they are just a bunch of old farts who couldn’t get laid by their own wives. Proof? Every single thing that Trump has done since siezing power. Just look at the cabinet that he put together, comprised entirely of wealthy people, most of whom have zero expertise in their respective fields. Just look at the rollback of all Obama’s protections of individual rights. Just look at the new Tax Bill, a blank check for millionaires and corporations.
This is NOT politics as usual. Forget that I’ve been a voter in 12 Presidential elections, and before that I was active in protesting the unlawful War in Vietnam, getting tear-gassed in the March on Washington in 1969, getting locked up at Fort Knox for trying to help soldiers find out about their rights. I come from a political household, my mom was co-chair of the Liberal wing of the NYC Democratic party, I grew up with Mario Cuomo, Ed Koch and that entire cast of characters in my living room. What’s happening now is something else completely. If you view our current situation as a play, then the instigating event was the near collapse of the world economy in 2008.
I believe that this was a wake-up call for a certain class of multi-millionaires, who looked in the mirror, saw their big paunches and small dicks, and realized that something had to be done to safeguard their power. When Trump was actually able to bamboozle the underclass into making him their champion – like something out of Brecht’s Threepenny Opera – then the power imbalance already happening here was expedited into full-scale class warfare. All of this may sound very melodramatic – after all, how much has really changed in our daily lives since Trump’s election? Well, you see what’s happened to the Dreamers, Mexican illegals and now the Haitian immigrants. It’s not a big jump from that to you and me. The only recourse we have are upcoming elections. The majority of white men are a lost cause – they will sit in their Lazy-boys, stroking their guns and watching NASCAR until Hell has frozen over. My hope is that enough of the 53% of white women who voted for the Pussy-Grabber-in-Chief will have their own wake-up call and save us at the 11th Hour. If Trump-Pence gets re-elected, they will have no incentive to play by Constitutional rules, and this will become a dictatorship – all undoubtedly in the name of protecting the Constitution.
