Donald NAZI tRUmp, aka this fucking guy...!

Greetings, fellow Dot Calm Readers, Freedom Fighters, and Truth Crusaders!

So, friends...

There I was this morning...puzzling over how to introduce le blawg this evening...toying with the idea of describing, analyzing, and denouncing the...ahem..."fluidity" of Republican "reality"...

...a-a-a-a-and then, this afternoon in the break room at work, I caught part of tRUmp's "press conference"

...the now-infamous 15 August 2017 performance in which tRUmp blamed the unarmed anti-Nazi, anti-racist protestors--tarring them with the epithet "alt-left"--and standing up a false equivalency between those fighting against violence, oppression, and bigotry and those fighting for those evils.

satan Ban'em himself must've wept with delight.

But what is tRUmp really saying here?

Let's consider the top 10:

1. tRUmp told his Nazi, confederate, fascist base he didn't mean a word of that nopology hostage video he was forced to shoot yesterday.

2. tRUmp told his precious, beloved Ivanka, "Fuck you and your children." He told his favorite son [sic] Jared, "Fuck you, too."

3. tRUmp told the world he'd rather kiss PEWtin's fascist, Nazi ass and the pasty, cellulite-laden white asses of American Nazis, fascists, and confederates than stand up for his own favorite daughter and her family.

4. tRUmp sided against his own daughter and her family in favor of those in this country--strangers he's never met and may never meet--who'd gladly murder them if given half a chance.

5. tRUmp equated those who want to stop the murder of unarmed Blacks with those who want to go back to owning Blacks as chattel property.

6. tRUmp equated peaceful, non-violent counter-protestors with gun-and-torch-toting confederates and Nazis.

7. tRUmp equated those who were beaten and injured with those doing the beating and injuring.

8. tRUmp equated the murdered with the murderer.

9. tRUmp equated those who fought for this country with those who fought to destroy it.

10. tRUmp equated the traitors of the confederacy with the patriots who stood up for the founding of this nation based on Enlightenment values.

But wait--there's moar...

11. tRUmp equated terrorists with those who fight terrorism because they're regularly victimized by terrorists.

12. tRUmp called Nazis and confederates "very fine people."

Um, excuse me, but America fought a fucking civil war because the slave-owning confederates were NOT "very fine people." Nor were they patriots. They were TRAITORS--hence the confederate FLAG.

And America fought a fucking world war because the Jew-murdering Nazis were NOT "very fine people."

Dot Calm's favorite uncle--the apple of her grandparents' eyes--was a Marine in WW II. He fought the Nazis. And he fought the Japanese in "hand-to-hand" combat...which means with a bayonet...and the violence turned his mind. When he came back from the war, he went into the police force because he'd gotten so used to the violence. And he coped...until, one fine day, he put the service revolver into his mouth and pulled the trigger--the first time of many in Dot Calm's life in which a gun took the life of someone she knew and loved.

My friend's dad fought in WW II. Like Dot Calm's uncle, this gentleman was a Marine who fought Nazis, who fought the Japanese, who fought with bayonets, and whose mind snapped from the violence. My friend's dad was luckier, if you want to call it that. After countless times chasing his family around the house with a kitchen knife, they packed him off to live with caretakers who stole his every last penny--what should have been inheritance money for my friend, his siblings, and their children. After that, in a rare moment of lucidity, he asked his wife to put him into the VA home because he realized he couldn't manage himself or his money. He survived to a ripe old age, but he was basically a prisoner--he couldn't leave the VA facility on his own because his paranoid schizophrenia made him a danger to himself and others, so there he stayed until my friend or one of his sisters could come take him out to church or a nice meal at a local restaurant.

These men and thousands of others like them didn't fight the fucking Nazis just so that tRUmp could coddle and cuddle up to Nazis today, in 2017 America, where he's already emboldened them to spill innocent blood.

Every single one of tRUmp's statements and equivalencies is as false as tRUmp's hair and his ugly orange spray "tan."

Every single one of tRUmp's false statements and equivalencies is Not Even Wrong--just like tRUmp is about...well...everything.

The battle line has been drawn, friends.

As a nation, we have crossed a point of no return.

tRUmp has threatened nuclear war and undone 150 years of civil and human rights in less than a week.

Until we can organize a
 
GENERAL STRIKE NOW--
SPECIAL ELECTION NOW!!!!!

to restore to Hillary what PEWtin and the Republicans stole from her, it's time to call, Resistbot, and hang out in our elected officials' offices and

DEMAND TRUMP'S IMMEDIATE IMPEACHMENT AND REMOVAL
FROM OFFICE!!!!!

tRUmp is an imminent danger to this nation and to everyone in it.

tRUmp is an imminent danger to the world and to human civilization itself.

We have to do more than resist--we have to put our collective foot down and stop cooperating.

Don't tolerate milquetoast Democrats like Mark Warner who lavish praise on tRUmp nopologies.

Don't praise "concerned" Republicans who finally speak the right words today without swift and decisive action tomorrow.

Call, fax, stand over your Republican officials' desks and breathe down their necks  (hopefully with garlic breath) until they IMPEACH AND REMOVE tRUmp!!!!!

Get out in the streets early and often--yell and  scream and chant and bang those pots and pans, but keep it non-violent lest tRUmp find an excuse to pull martial law.

And don't forget to boycott any and every company and corporation that supports him--and be sure to tell them WHY!

For as filthy, dangerous, and bigoted of an ideologue as Mike Pence is, he won't threaten nuclear war over Twitter; he won't blab top secret information; and he won't be in office forever--just until Mueller gets him.

And then, let's fight like hell to restore the stolen property of the Presidency and Merrick Garland's SCOTUS seat to their rightful owners.

If you cheat, you DON'T get to keep the fucking trophy!!!!!

ONWARD!

...Investigative journalist and fighter against Crosscheck and voter suppression Greg Palast and his photographer were on the scene and got footage of the terrorists who beat up Deandre in the parking garage. Deandre is a teacher and actual Very Fine Person. And he's damned lucky to be alive today. The terrorists ganged up on him...he said they were beating him with a stick, but social media has identified one of the terrorists, who beat Deandre with a pipe. Deandre has got eight staples in his scalp, a broken wrist, concussion, and other injuries. Like I said, incredibly lucky to be alive. Jesus ass-twerking Christ.

U.S. military anti-fascism film from ~1947. Shockingly timely. If only the tRUmpanzees would watch it. Like I say, if you're not at the table, you're on the menu--and ain't none of us rich enough to be at the table with the likes of the Koch brothers, PEWtin, and their filthy greedy ilk.



Concise and perfect


Evangelicals especially would have flayed O'Bama if this had happened among his campaign staff

Um, duh? Republicans actually LOVE abortions, if you ask me.




A welcome piece of good news!




Manafort's mob ties scare the White House? What about tRUmp's mob ties? Hellz, tRUmp has been in bed with the mob since at least his Atlantic City days.



North Korea. Pfft--that was sooooo last week!

Fucking scandalous.

And I helped! Hopefully, you did, too!

Ban'em isn't out yet, but he's not home and dry, either.

When the Red Wings and Tiki torches are more moral than the asshole traitor bigot loser squatting in the White House...

155 people were arrested in Ferguson.
4 were arrested in Charlottesville.
Governor Terry McAuliffe claimed
 that his cops were outgunned by the Nazis...
he lied.
The cops were at least as well armed
as the Nazi and confederate terrorists...
the cops simply chose to stand by
and let the terrorists do their worst.
