One of my senators just called Trump’s speech fascist; I couldn’t be more proud

Thank you, Ron Wyden — my senator — for calling out the ocher abomination in the strongest terms.

In case you missed it, here’s some of what Wyden was responding to:

TRUMP: “Our country always wins. That is why I am taking immediate presidential action to stop the violence and restore security and safety in America. I am mobilizing all available federal resources, civilian and military, to stop the rioting and looting to end the destruction and arson and to protect the rights of law-abiding Americans, including your Second Amendment rights. Therefore, the following measures are going into effect immediately. First, we are ending the riots and lawlessness that has spread throughout our country. We will end it now. Today I have strongly recommended to every governor to deploy the National Guard in sufficient numbers that we dominate the streets, mayors and governors must establish an overwhelming law enforcement presence until the violence has been quelled.”

And …

TRUMP: “If a city or state refuses to take the actions that are necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them. I am also taking swift and decisive action to protect our great capital Washington, D.C. What happened in this city last night was a total disgrace. As we speak, I am dispatching thousands and thousands of heavily armed soldiers, military personnel, and law enforcement officers to stop the rioting, looting, vandalism, assaults, and the wanton destruction of property. We are putting everybody on warning our 7 o’clock curfew will be strictly enforced. Those who threatened innocent life and property will be arrested, detained and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. I want the organizers of this terror to be on notice that you will face severe criminal penalties and lengthy sentences in jail.”

I fear this will end terribly. And clearing out peaceful protesters with tear gas and rubber bullets for a photo op? With apologies to Caligula and Mussolini, it sounds like something a mad dictator would do.

Everything this guy touches turns to garbage. He’s like black mold spreading uncontrollably through our house.

And if you don’t think this asshole is serious, remember what he said about the brutal suppression of the Tiananmen Square protesters in 1990:

TRUMP: “When the students poured into Tiananmen Square, the Chinese government almost blew it. Then they were vicious, they were horrible, but they put it down with strength. That shows you the power of strength. Our country is right now perceived as weak … as being spit on by the rest of the world …”

Well, now we’re perceived as awful, stupid, and on the verge of total chaos. Shows you what phony toughness accomplishes.

As an observer of the issues that are playing out across America currently and from what I have picked up from engaging this web page, I have to ask the question, Can He do what he has just proposed or is he just exhaling more hot air.

Whomever advised Trump to stand outside a church (which he never sets foot inside of unless it’s to make him look good) and hold the Bible (which he would’ve never read) should be looking for another job. This was nothing short of a disastrous PR stunt that has backfired terribly.

I’ve worked in advertising and marketing for a number of years, and the first thing I was ever taught is to look at the idea objectively and envision what it will look like when it’s seen by the public. This one fails on a number of levels.

Our current government is weak and appears corrupt with donnie hiding in the bunker under the white house. Still the draft dodging cowardly bully. Our people are amazingly brave organizing and defying covid 19 to show what they believe is right and must be corrected. There are some troubled folks who feel destroying things are saying F U to society. I am sure they will get instructions on how wrong that is and hopefully stop. It is interesting how many stories there are blaming several different folks for the idea. donnie most likely thought. this up but will throw anyone,… Read more »

PS donnie didn’t write those messages above. I doubt he is capable of creating them and definitely not capable of writing them
