Donald Trump is the Most Un-American, Least Patriotic, Biggest Threat to Democracy Since Joe McCarthy

Donald Trump really is a threat to democracy and I’m not being hyperbolic. He represents the very worst in all of us. He draws strength from our fear, our hatred and our willingness to believe the unbelievable.

Note: If you don’t know who Joe McCarthy was, you can read about him HERE.  He was another bad guy who thought he could run roughshod over the Bill of Rights.

Trump doesn’t just lie, he twists the truth into something sinister and unbearable. He has done it so many times that it would take all day to recount them.

Just yesterday he told a story about President Obama shouting down a protestor at a rally for Hillary Clinton. The truth, captured on video is just the opposite. President Obama shouted down the crowd, telling them to respect the protestor’s right to voice his opinion.

As usual, it was the opposite of what Trump said and the opposite of what happens at Trump rallies. Trump’s entire campaign has been based on the 3rd grade mantra of, “I know you are, but what am I?”

I don’t know if we’re all preaching to the choir or pissing into the wind. The point is, nobody’s listening. People who think the way I do read my stuff.  There’s Breitbart, Drudge and a ton of Right wing conspiracists for others to read.

I guess it all depends what you’re looking for.

Hillary Clinton will probably win tomorrow, but it will not be a sweet victory. Mitch McConnell will no doubt work to impede any progress our legislators could make if they did their jobs.

As Forrest Gump wisely said, “That’s all I have to say about that.”

Below are some headlines that I wrote, hoping to follow with thought-provoking ideas and comments. That’s not going to happen.

Feel free to flesh them out as you might see fit.  A couple are followed with a few lines of what was to have come, but never did.

  • Donald Trump Promises to Order Young Men and Women to Commit Criminal Acts and War Crimes
  • Teflon Don or the Things We Do For Love?
  • Donald Trump may be America’s ISIS
  • Donald Trump may be Right. It’s Time to Repeal Everyone’s Right to Express Their Opinions

Following are a couple of comments posted to my Facebook page that speak to the mindset of what Donald Trump refers to as his “poorly educated.”

Comment 1:Andy Borowitz works at the New York Times… nothing more could be said to the bias.”

Response:  Andy Borowitz works at New Yorker magazine, although he has appeared on the New York Times Bestseller list.  Also, what she meant to say is, “nothing more need be said about the bias.”  In any case,  Borowitz may be too articulate for the tastes of the Trump crowd, but his satire clearly sails over their heads.

Comment 2:Rant rant. No it’s not right to exclude religions or ethnicity from our first amendment, but isn’t the real message he is saying is come here legally and live up to the laws, provide into society not what you take from the country, learn to tolerate other religious beliefs. That’s what being an upstanding member of society give, and lives patriotically under the flag of The United States.”

Response: This one is a bit of a head scratcher.  I have no idea what it means to ” exclude religions or ethnicity from our first amendment” but, as usual it’s followed by a jumbled explanation of what Trump “really means”  when he says hateful and/or ridiculous things.  They hear what they need to hear and express it in rudimentary and sometimes unintelligible form.


In footage published by Inside Edition, a man identified as John McGraw is asked if he liked the event.  “You bet I liked it,” he says.

When asked what he liked, he responds: “Knocking the hell out of that big mouth.”

“We don’t know who he is, but we know he’s not acting like an American,” McGraw added. “The next time we see him, we might have to kill him.”

Good to know we have “real Americans” like John McGraw.

  • Betsy McCaughey is like herpes, she just Won’t Go Away

Betsy McCaughey is generally regarded as a liar and a crackpot. It’s no surprise that she wound up as one of Trump’s spokesidiots. She’s certainly as qualified as the other cuckoos, like Katrina Pierson.

I wrote a piece about Ms. McCaughey back in June, you can read Part 1 HERE.

If you find Part 1 somewhat interesting, you can read Part 2 HERE.


Now get out there and vote.
