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.

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.  Later, Store to Door delivers groceries, which I get to put away.  Cherry season is over.  Now the cherries I get can be found in Garcia.  This evening, WWWendy comes to destink the TomCat and do chores.  Yesterday, the power chair tech diagnosed shot bearings in both front wheels.  The rear wheels are the drive wheels.  They had to order the parts and will return as soon as they come in.  I thought the chair was about to fall apart, but it’s just so noisy that it even bothers neighbors on the way to the elevator.  Squeaky Hugs!

From Daily Kos: It’s unclear exactly how big the Log Cabin Republicans group is, but it’s now down by a couple following the resignation of two members over the gay conservative group’s pathetic endorsement of Trump 2020. “It saddens me greatly to say that today, I am ending my association with Log Cabin Republicans, an organization I’ve been heavily involved with for the last decade—including serving as president of the D.C. chapter for three years,” Robert Turner wrote in a Facebook post.

“But for me, there’s no more fight left,” he continued. “The national board’s endorsement of Trump, and their subsequent and hollow WaPo op-ed, is a step too far. And this leaves me sad.” There’s a lot about this that’s sad, but it’s all self-inflicted, because the group didn’t have to endorse Trump, or anyone for that matter. The group sat out 2016 and could have decided to do the same again in 2020, but jumped on the Trump Train even though the car plainly reads “no gays allowed” on the outside.

Turner wasn’t alone either, following the resignation of another member, Jennifer Horn, over the group’s endorsement. “There is no world where I can sit down at the dining room table and explain to my children that I just endorsed Donald Trump for president,” she told The Washington Post. “It is contrary to everything that I have ever taught them about what it means to be a good, decent, principled member of society.”

The leaders of the Log Cabin Republicans are as nuts as their Fuhrer. the members should move their cabin out of the Republican Party. RESIST!!

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!!

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!!

Someone needs to shove a glacier up the butt of every climate change denying Republican politician and staffer, while we still can. Sadly, we’ll run out of glaciers long before we run out of Republicans. RESIST!!
