Bigotry of a Mental Defective

Please consider this hypothetical situation.  When I was in the hospital Tuesday for my Cat Scan, I could have insisted that I am the King of Israel and that I am God’s Chosen One.  I didn’t.  How do you know?  If I had, they would have thrown a net over over me and tossed me behind a locked door.  Well, that’s exactly what Resident Donald Trump, Fuhrer of the Republican Reich did, while demeaning Jews by repeating anti-Semitic claims from racist and conspiracy theorist Wayne Allyn Root.

President Trump on Wednesday tweeted a fawning quote from a non-Jewish conservative radio host who described Trump as the “King of Israel” and who said, without evidence, that Israeli Jews “love him like he is the second coming of God.”

Trump’s tweets cited Wayne Allyn Root, who described himself in a 2016 Townhall column as a “Jew turned evangelical Christian” and has promoted several conspiracy theories in the past, including that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States and that he is gay.

“The Jewish people in Israel love him like he’s the King of Israel,” Trump quoted Root as saying. “They love him like he is the second coming of God…But American Jews don’t know him or like him. They don’t even know what they’re doing or saying anymore.”…

…Trump’s tweets made “King of Israel” the leading trending topic of the day on Twitter, generating many baffled and outraged responses. Later Wednesday, Trump saidI am the chosen one” to fix the U.S. trade imbalance with China, as he looked to the sky.  [emphasis added]

MSNBC shared a couple videos on this.  The first focuses on Trumps bigotry, and the second, on his lack of sanity.

Trump Doubles His Controversial Message To Jewish Americans ‘King Of The Jews’

Psychiatrist On ‘The Essential Emptiness Of President Donald Trump’

On the subject of gun control, Trump keeps claiming that the problem is taking guns from mentally ill people.  While universal background checks will help a lot more, I do agree that mentally ill people, who act it out as hatred or violence, should not have access to firearms.  Assuming that is true, how much more true is it that such people should not have access to nuclear footballs?

It’s another busy day here in the shiny new CatBox.  The power chair repairman is due in about an hour to fix my chair.  I have no idea how long it will take.  Yesterday my Oncologist’s PA explained that the nodes in my lungs are so tiny that they are impossible to biopsy, and that they are probably just scar tissue from my COPD.  Therefore, they’ll do another Cat Scan in three months, to make sure they undergo no sudden growth.  This is my only article today, but starting tomorrow, I should be back in the saddle until Sunday.

This is great.  Unfortunately, this attitude also tends to steer voters toward Joe Biden and against Democratic competitors, who are both more cogent and more competent. Assuming that we win in 2020, an administration that gives Republicans license to screw America in a the misguided pursuit of bipartisanship will guarantee a quick Republican return to power. RESIST!!

The Reich on the left, Robert Reich, is right. The Reich on the Right, the Republican Reich, has two kinds of policies: scams and bigger scams. Robert’s plan is spot-on! RESIST!!

From The New Yorker: A man with no identifiable skills is deeply worried that a recession could cause him to lose his job, people close to the man have confirmed.

The man, who has barely clung to his job for the past two and a half years, is justified in believing that an economic downturn would result in his unemployment, experts said.

“When the economy is good, it’s possible for someone like him to hold down a job for which he is woefully unqualified,” Harland Dorrinson, a human-resources specialist, said. “But when the economy goes south, look out.”

Dorrinson said that the unskilled man’s résumé, which lists six bankruptcies and multiple business failures, could come under scrutiny in the event of a recession.

“His employers might find themselves asking, ‘How did he get this job in the first place?’ ” Dorrinson said.

Andy, he got the job by repeating ‘Spasibo, tovarishch Putin’ over and over. RESIST!!

It’s a muggy day with 88% humidity.  I feel itchy, as it’s shower time, but WWWendy will not return from her weekend party until late this evening, and will be here in the morning.  Therefore, I will have only a Personal Update tomorrow.

Ah! The memories! RESIST!!

From CNN: Workers at the Pennsylvania petrochemical plant where President Donald Trump spoke Tuesday were told that if they didn’t attend the event, they either had to use paid time off or receive no pay for the day.

At least some of the workers who attended the speech were instructed not to protest the President, who told the crowd of workers at the Royal Dutch Shell plant he would be imploring their union leaders to support his reelection. 

And the sleazy son of a bitch bragged about crowd size and adulation. What a crock! RESIST!!

From Think Progress: The U.S. Supreme Court in its upcoming session will hear arguments on whether anti-LGBTQ employment discrimination is sex discrimination.

The court will hear arguments on October 8 about whether LGBTQ workers are protected by the Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

“This is a momentous occasion. It is a pivotal moment and the public should be paying attention,” Omar Gonzalez-Pagan, senior attorney at Lambda Legal, a civil rights organization focused on LGBTQ people, told ThinkProgress.

“These cases will affect the ability of LGBTQ people to be full members of society and to contribute to society by entering the workplace and be free of discrimination.”

I fear that Roberts, Scalito, Pervert Thomas, Whoresuch, and Pervert Kava-Nazi will gang up on the Constitution again. RESIST!!

I’m running late, as I overslept and had several chores  to complete. Next week will be so busy that I will probably have only a Personal Update Monday though Wednesday.  Monday is a WWWendy day, a day late, and we have lots to do.  Tuesday I have an Oncologist appointment to interpret my Cat Scan.  Wednesday I have a power chair repairman coming.  I suspect a bad wheel bearing as my chair screeches whenever I’m on the move.  TGIF Hugs!

From YouTube (MSNBC Channel): Donald Trump Nominates Advocate Of ‘Ethnonationalism’ For Judgeship

 

How did Bought Bitch Moscow Mitch know to hold all those judgeships open for Trump, when most thought Hillary would cream Trump. Bought Bitch Moscow Mitch must have already known Putin was stealing the government for the Republican Reich. Can anyone guess which ethnic group that Republican racist Menashi favors? RESIST!!

From YouTube (Parody Project Channel): HALLELUJAH FOR THE NRA!

 

Don retreaded this, but with Republican Ammosexual terrorists on a killing spree, he could not have picked a more appropriate time to bring it back. RESIST!!

From Daily Kos: Sen. Susan Collins took time out of her busy schedule of being extremely disappointedthat people expect her to do something about gun violence to attend a fundraiser on Friday. A fundraiser on her behalf. Held by Leonard Leo, Donald Trump’s “judge whisperer.”

Remember all that hand-wringing we saw from Collins last fall over her vote for Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court? It was kabuki. The fix had been in for a long time, with Collins reportedly giving Mitch McConnell the green light for her vote on this nomination before it happened. Now that she’s hobnobbing with Federalist Society executive vice president Leonard Leo—and he’s raising buckets of money for her—the quid pro quo is staring us in the face.

She’s already received the maximum contribution from Leo, $2,800. So now he’s opened the doors of his $4 million mansion for Collins and all his rich friends—who got a big tax break thanks to Collins’ vote on that Trump tax scam—to say thanks. Leo has become increasingly high-profile since Trump got installed in the Oval Office, even taking a leave from his job at the Federalist Society to specifically get Kavanaugh on the court. He has unprecedented sway and say over Trump in judicial nominations, ensuring that the courts get packed with young judges who have extreme anti-abortion, anti-LGBTQ rights, and anti-voting rights records.

There are two kinds of Republicans in office: open goose-steppers and secret goose-steppers. RESIST!!
