Donald Trump’s War on Decency, plus GÖPperdämmerung

Donald Jong Trump is NOT a Christian, let’s get that straight. If, “by their fruits ye shall know them” is accurate, then the fruit of Trump has been naught but meadow muffins, steaming cow pies  of selfishness, narcissism and poorly masked sadism.

I suppose that it is telling that I’m far more pissed off that Trump has decided to destroy the credibility of the American word (with abrogating the multi-lateral Iran agreement) and to directly attack 62 million American women by pretending that “Christian” morals (although the administration will argue ALL morals, we know it’s the “Pro-Life” fascists he’s placating) than that I am angered by the GOP’s direct attack on my life, by attempting to destroy Obamacare — the only reason that I did NOT die in hospital last year, but actually got the treatment and drugs that have kept me alive and even returned my life to a livable, tolerable degree of health.

From November 15, 2016

It’s a character failing I have: I tend to become far more exercised at the injustices of others than to threats to my person. Why? Dunno. But it’s a fact, jack, going back to my taking on of my Third Grade teacher for making a speech accusing the Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts of violating the Green River Law. (My parents and the principal agreed that I was right, but told me not to tell anyone, inaugurating my career as a political troublemaker. She retired at the end of that year, sparing the second graders of Nellie Iles her rather vicious ministrations thereafter.)

So, take my last essay, and add a zero to the final score. Listen to the stamp of tiny jackboots:

Watch: Sarah Huckabee Sanders callously laughs at women who will lose their birth control

For the Trump administration to block women’s access to birth control is bad enough.  To laugh at those women is exceptionally cruel.  Donald Trump has utterly failed to deliver on his threat to repeal Obamacare and harm the millions of men and women who have health care because of it. So he’s going to punish women directly instead.

On Friday, his administration announced that he is rolling back the critical provision that covers birth control — a cruel, unnecessary, and costly decision that will affect 62 million women and their families…

Nothing “Christian” in that. But the modern “Christian” evangelicals aren’t actually Christians either, so it all works out: cruelty masked as religion; misogyny masked as “Christianity.”

AP-NORC Poll: Low marks for Trump’s Puerto Rico response
By LAURIE KELLMAN AND EMILY SWANSON, ASSOCIATED PRESS 
WASHINGTON — Oct 4, 2017, 1:22 PM ET

Americans are more likely to disapprove than approve of President Donald Trump’s handling of the Puerto Rico hurricane relief effort.

According to a poll by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, just 32 percent approve of how Trump is handling disaster relief in the U.S. territory, while 49 percent disapprove.

“It took him how long to get to Puerto Rico?” said Bree Harris, a 25-year-old chef and Democrat from Los Angeles. She suspects Trump “didn’t even know that Puerto Rico was an island that was part of America. It’s embarrassing.”

Embarrassing? Well, yes, but then that is a monumental understatement.

I guess it was the spectacle of watching the Hirsute Cheeto Beast pretending to be a t-shirt gun in distributing paper towels to Puerto Ricans devastated by Hurricane Maria in perhaps the single most obscene photo op since the Bush Baby took over a square in New Orleans and backlit an equestrian statue of Andrew Jackson  so that he could have HIS Hurricane Katrina photo op in a city whose ONLY electricity (virtually) was from the generators Bush’s handlers set up to light his photo op — it was the spectacle of the cottonelle towel tossing that finally did it.

Shooting: The Obligatory Liberal is Sacrificed to Right Wing PeeCee

Well, here it is, as predictable as an eclipse and just as malevolent:

CBS Legal Exec: No Sympathy For Vegas ‘Because Country Music Fans Often Are Republican’
Will Ricciardella / The Daily Caller

A top legal executive at CBS, Hayley Geftman-Gold, said she “is not even sympathetic” for the victims of the shooting at a country music festival at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas Sunday night.

In a tweet. And was fired. Score one for the Revenge of the 101st Chairborne.

O, Absalom. THIS festival of Right Wing Hate is now atop Memeorandum as I write this. In other words, it is the TOP CONCERN of the blogosphere (increasingly dominated by the giant News Korporations that the blogosphere originally counterbalanced, you will note.)
