The Time Has Come

… Today

I have been patient with the BS coming from the Trump Administration for a very long time. Mostly, I think, because I have been waiting for those under his spell to wake up and realize what they are a part of.

But now, with this Orangutan flavored idiot playing chicken with the loud-mouthed little punk from N. Korea and putting military action in Venezuela on the table and … perhaps most importantly, encouraging the ugly face of neo-Nazism to come out of the woodwork, where it’s been hiding for years with the roaches and other vermin – I have had enough. I’m going to be speaking out directly in this space more than I have before. Because the time has come, and it must come soon, we must all start to rid this country of the fascism that is infecting it from the head or it will soon be too late.

Richard Painter, who was the chief ethics lawyer in the George W. Bush White House from 2005-07 has come to a breaking point. On Joy Reid’s “AM Joy” show on MSNBC yesterday morning he said,  in the video segment labeled, “Richard Painter: This is the face of fascism in the U.S.” – he said here, among other things, “I will call for the impeachment of this president if he does not fire the neo-fascists in his White House immediately.” It’s a great interview, try to catch it all, here: goo.gl/BXFxdA

I went to bed last night thinking about this situation and woke up thinking about this song:

Man, who thought that old Chambers Bros. song was just waiting for a time like this to be so appropriate?

Well, it struck me that way – maybe I’m the only one. But I am quite sure of this – America is on the verge of having way too much dictated to it by an ugly, tiny minority. What sign is it you are waiting for? What do you need to see before you are ready to take action?

An innocent young woman was killed on the streets of the U.S. yesterday by a young man who was a bit less innocent who thought it would be a good idea to drive his car, with heavily tinted windows – into a crowd of the “enemy” - the anti-fascist protesters who gathered to oppose the Nazi demonstrators who held a very Nazi Germany style parade Friday night to protest the planned removal of a statue of Confederate Civil War hero Robert E. Lee. These Nazis also showed up on Saturday dressed out in riot gear that would make a SWAT team jealous.

This is what it’s come to. Trump has fomented this attitude. Why? Putin is his financial base and neo-nazis in the US are his political base. That’s why. It’s very simple. Please people, freedom lovers, those who know that Nazis and Russian Oligarchs are not people who should be making rules for us to live under – please realize that you must draw this line and insist, like Richard Painter, that there is no place in American government for Nazis. Please set your minds and hearts against this and oppose it now – before it’s too late.

The Time has come today

Trump and his Nazis must go away

  1. i saw the news, and it saddens me to think that a country founded on the hopes of giving everyone a haven to be themselves is going through such a regressive, offensive, crisis. Thanks for speaking up. I hope others do too. Times are changing and we have to put are minor differences aside and put forward our collective interests i..e. peace and prosperity.

    1. Thank you for the thoughtful reply, Halima. Yes indeed, “put forward our collective interests”, is what we need to do. 🙂
