Yeah, "White Power", expect more of this, we're in danger of turning what was a lunatic fringe movement into something more mainstream, for every action there is a reaction. I recently discovered The Turner Diaries, the white supremacist's bible, apparently. No doubt it's come to the fore because of recent events. By all accounts it's terribly written and derives it's power from its fanatical, dystopian, nazi vision, preaching to the converted so to speak. Anyway, that's by the by, the point is the parallels between the narrative in that book (published 1978) and the current situation are uncanny and scary.

So the problem is that we have a president that tweets and retweets material without proper consideration as to merit. Granted! You'll get no argument from me. Guilty as charged. Here's the problem, though. Have you seen some of the vitriolically racist comments that's come from members of the BLM? And if so, why do you not have a problem with that? Why do you reserve your moral indignation for one political party rather than another?

I dunno this is getting weird and I keep seeing White Powder.  It's a subliminal message and I feel we need to relax with, or without, the White Powder.

This is what the Left in America thinks is going to happen. They are going to defeat Trump in 2020, which I believe is hardly guaranteed but highly likely. And then they're going to celebrate. And then the reality hits. And to the same degree the Democratic party has allowed itself to become radicalized, there will be at least an equal and opposite reaction from the radical right. I think a much, much worse reaction. Don't forget that roughly 50% of all Americans are right of center. Are 50% of Americans going to acquiesce to things like racial reparations? Of course not. Any meaningful socialism? No. This is what is so funny and endearing about the Left, is that they really believe Trump is the worst that can happen to them.

Any explanation is bad for Trump:

- either he did it on purpose and he is an incompetent opportunist and/or racist

- or he is an incompetent moron who doesn't even check what he re-tweets.

 

But, on the other hand, any daftness like this distracts attention from worse stuff, and gives his supporters something to argue and fight for. Keep media/social media busy, keep the base primed.

Who says or implies that? You've made your accusation. Now make your case.

 

Yeah, because making one's case is sooo important to Trump and his fans.

Now can you give a "lockherup!"?

Hallelujah.

Amen.
