Earlier today, while auditioning YouTube clips for my site’s Vid of the Day and Sunday Song Series presentations, I had my sensibilities relentlessly assaulted by a barrage of toxic Trump ads.

And who the hell wants to look at a narcissist who only looks out for his own political posterior… i.e., rather than look out for the best interests of [1] the people he is supposed to serve [2] the nation he’s supposed to preserve, protect and defend and [3] the planet we expect him to save for posterity.

I don’t know why Donny would even be concerned about Impeachment / removal from office, seeing how he has never done even one honest day’s work within that office.

The irony, here, is how he could’ve easily continued collecting his undeserved paycheck for four… hell… maybe even eight years… by merely doing what he does best… [1] pigging out on fast food, cake and ice cream, [2] vegging out in front of his Fox Network only TV screen and [3] trotting out to the links… FORE!!!!

Since Donny’s YouTube noise machine roars on and on, unabated, it’s obvious that CEO Susan Wojcicki has allowed her platform to become but one more slimy, scaly tentacle of the toxic Trumpian monster.

Why would she not take a stand to preserve, protect and defend America… indeed, our entire world… from the greatest threat to liberty, civility and human dignity / rights since Adolf Hitler. She does have the power to flat-out refuse to run any Fascist’s self-serving ads. Since she chooses to look the other way…

I am seriously considering looking the other way, too, by staging my one-man boycott of YouTube. Were that to happen, the only reason I’d ever reverse my decision would be if I needed a video of Donald J. Trump delivering his resignation speech.

“Sell” the “Cl” and “Buy” an “F” (1 Quick Limerick #083)

 

For those so inclined… today’s poetry requires some active reader participation… 18+ only please. To max out your reading enjoyment, read… word for word… and then follow… to the letter… this blog’s above-headlined Line 4 / Word 4 Instructions.

 

Trump and his boneheaded, bigoted base,
Plot to reboot Adolf’s Aryan race,
They hanker for “Mein Kamph”, redux,
Amerika Axis! (Dumb Clucks!)
Fighting FOR fascism¹ is a disgrace!

 

 

¹ WTF gives anyway? From time immemorial, our fearless ancestors have fought and even bled to death to gain and maintain freedom… each earning the fitting title of Freedom Fighter.

Not even in our worst nightmares could we have ever foreseen the day where once upon a time decent folks are getting suckered into becoming Fascist Fighters… on behalf of some flimflamming, glad-handing, greed driven, bastard, a-hole, autocratic leader, who’ll sell the soul of humanity… bleed humanity dry… even destroy an entire ecosystem… just to get the trains to run on time.

The easily duped can count on having little to nothing to show for their misguided, blind loyalty… other than a dead-end, benefits barren, non-living wage, here today / gone tomorrow, part time, clock punching job. A lousy trade off considering how they’ll be selling their very souls to the bosses from hell… typically the tyrannical, maniacal, sadistic slave-drivers, who’ll get off on watching their workers suffer hourly and drop dead prematurely.

 

 

 

 

 

Dirty Harry’s Holocaust

 

Something I’ll never be able to fathom is how the post-Hiroshima, Harry S. Truman could see the death and destruction he had inflicted upon humanity and, yet, rage onward into Nagasaki… how the post Nagasaki Truman might’ve even said to himself, “What a good little boy am I!”

Only a sociopathic flesh peddler would ever have the audacity to rationalize that the wholesale slaughter of 90,000–146,000 souls in Hiroshima (08/06/1945) AND 39,000–80,000 souls in Nagasaki (08/09/1945) was somehow, someway justifiable???

True… technically speaking… Truman’s WMD had prevented Hitler from developing / detonating his own nuclear WMD. But, it’s impossible to see much difference between these two sickos when neither of them had any qualms about frying humanity.

Little doubt, delusional Harry believed he was nuking on behalf of a noble cause. But would not delusional ‘Dolf have believed the same thing? To fight nukes with nukes to save the world? It’d be a hard sell to convince the hapless, helpless “survivors” that such a madman ruled world is even worth saving.

True… technically speaking… in the wake of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, WW-II did come to an end. But, did it REALLY end? Did anyone ever ACTUALLY win? Once the radioactive dust had settled we were… still are… left with only one, inescapable truth.

Truman’s Two Nukes Did Not Make One Right!

All that micro-brained “prez” had truly accomplished was the establishment of “mushroom envy” amongst the other micro-brained world “leaders” of that era… and every other era ever since. He ushered in a never-ending, global, nuclear arms race, which even now… especially now… the current, micro-brained, “prez” taps into, revels in and escalates (one Tweet / one soundbite at a time).

If/when we, the 21st century nuclear pawns, experience Dirty Donny’s nuclear war, it’d be a misnomer to call it WW-III. In reality, it’d be the resumption Dirty Harry’s 1945 nuclear holocaust.

It’s not too late to put Harry S. Truman, on trial for his crimes against humanity and (posthumously) bring him to justice.

 

Vid of the Day ~ Thank-you Mr. Colbert!

I found Stephen Colbert’s above video yesterday… mere hours after posting my own blog on the same topic. His echoing and expanding upon my own sentiments has been both a validating and enlightening experience. Hopefully, you will feel similarly.

Although this was Colbert’s Father’s Day message to my homeland and our world, his words need to be heard for as long as it takes for Trump’s diehard supporters to, once again, embrace true American values… to reclaim their minds, hearts and souls.

Regardless of political stripe, everyone must feel horror and disgust each and every time we eyewitness Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions prioritizing… over everything else… their “white bread only world”. Each and every time we eyewitness them trotting out their zero tolerance immigration policy. Each and every time we eyewitness their deployed, uniformed, mindless minions traumatizing immigrant children by wrenching them from their fathers’ and mothers’ loving, hugging arms. Each and every time we eyewitness these innocent kids being imprisoned… maybe forever… within concentrations camps.

What is to happen to these detainees… in particular the younger ones? Will Fascist papa Trump morph them into mercenaries to fight in wars against enemies of his own making? Will these young soldiers help “their Daddy” prop up his scum of the earth, murderous dictator pals? Might First Daughter and Fashionista Ivanka wind up exploiting them as third world sweatshop, slave labor?

Can we not see the historical parallels here, folks? Nearly eight decades ago, the scramble-brained, mad dog Adolf Hitler, also attempted to establish his “master race”, barked out his marching orders to his mindless minions AND backed all that up with gas chambers and crematoria.

Is our world on the cusp of a Holocaust redux? So far… the one missing Trumpian element involves those gas chambers and ovens / crematoria. Of course, seeing how Der Führer did make a 2016 campaign promise to Kentucky and West Virginia miners… his 21st century equivalent will likely be fired up with his “clean” coal.

 

ADDENDUM: I do thank whoever may’ve clicked by today for both your indulgence and endurance. Believe me I know… first hand… all about debilitating Trump fatigue. I’m fully aware of how difficult it must be for you to be reading such a post. After all, it’s no fun to be reminded of our shared distress. Don’t we all yearn for at least one Trump-free news cycle?

 

 

Is it wrong to call out the hypocrisy?

Yesterday was Memorial Day… a solemn holiday to honor U.S. soldiers who… from the earliest moments in American History… have made the ultimate sacrifice in battles to secure freedom for their compatriots… to liberate oppressed peoples here and abroad. We, who have been the beneficiaries of their heroism and selflessness, must, forever, feel indebted to them… I know those are my heartfelt sentiments.

So, why am I one day late in stating them?

My silence was out of respect to these heroes. My sense of decorum would not allow me to go anywhere near the Memorial Day spotlight which… after all… had to only shine upon them. Additionally my sensibilities would not permit me to politicize their day.

But… that was yesterday and today is today. From this point onward… the best way to call out some glaring hypocrisy is via political scrutiny.

Full disclosure: I’m a pacifist, who believes that intelligent, sane and selfless world rulers must become the rule and not the exception. Such leaders must respect one another, never engage in territorial pissing contests and always encourage their peoples to behave similarly.  From the top down, all members within these societies must understand that… in our world of plenty… there are sufficient resources to ensure that all law-abiding, able-bodied, industrious citizens become and remain psychologically, physically and fiscally fit. And for the record… the same must apply to the less fortunate… e.g., the aged, ailing and disabled. Wherever / whenever basic needs are met, one would expect warfare to become rare.

Of course, I’m also a pragmatist, who understands how my above paragraph likely describes an unattainable utopia. And… more to the point… that adjectives such as intelligent, sane and selfless rarely can be uttered in the same breath with _____________ (<— you insert the proper noun… i.e., the name of your chosen offensive king, prime minister, president, etc.).

Indeed, the leaders we actually get are frequently undereducated, unscrupulous, unbalanced and power-hungry. And let’s not forget to call out their hypocrisy, either.

So, WTF does any of this have to do with Memorial Day ’18? Well, I’ll flesh that out by inserting my chosen proper noun…the offensive, undereducated, unscrupulous, unbalanced, power-hungry HYPOCRITE Donald J. Trump!

During my formative years, my spot on parents both reminded me that, throughout life, I’d be judged by the company I keep. That inescapable truth applies to all… be you a pauper, president or anyone in between… inclusive of that emotional pauper / fake prez.

Since the birth of the United States… and onward… American warriors have defeated a slew of evil adversaries… inclusive of Klansmen and Nazis who were the forebearers of the very Klansmen and Nazis who have aided and abetted Trump’s rise to power… the very same, deplorable, white-robed and brown-shirted bastards he sucks up to and honors.

And… in honoring Klansmen and Nazis… he’s also dishonoring each and every American soldier who ever fought and died during the Civil War and WW-II.

Folks, in reality, on Memorial Day 2018, while addressing the Arlington Cemetery mourners, Donald J. Trump was spitting in the faces of the very patriots who had perished while toppling Jefferson Davis’ Confederacy and Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany.

At the very least… the fake prez MUST flat out denounce his Nazi and Klansmen pals AND return each and every 2016 campaign contribution they ever made AND… NEVER AGAIN… accept another penny from any of them.

At the very most… Donald J. Trump owes his heartfelt apology to each and every soldier who has ever perished in battle to preserve freedom… to protect and defend America… indeed the entire world… from the very hate and oppression both he and his scum of the earth Nazi / Klansmen pals embody.

 

 

Will Don Don Duds’ Duds? (One Quick Limerick #041)

 

Towards white supremacy, Don doth aspire,
His Klansman / Nazi base feels stoked, afire,
To coddle both sets of buds,
He’ll model both sets of duds?
‘Neath Don’s White Sheets he’ll don Brownshirt attire?

 

The so-called prez has a deplorable history of pandering to his hate mongering alt-right / white nationalist / Klansman / Nazi base. Even in the wake of the Charlottesville, Virginia bloodshed… vehicular manslaughter… where one of his goon pals deliberately plowed into a crowd of anti-racism protestors… murdering one woman and maiming dozens more… the soft on domestic terrorism, fake prez still categorized the sociopathic, bloodthirsty, deplorable alt-right vermin as “fine people”.

Ergo, it’d not be much of a stretch to consider the following (fortunately hypothetical) alternate timelines…

Had Donald Trump been “prez” during WW-II he would’ve been in bed with Adolf Hitler… had he been “prez” at a time leading up to America’s Civil War, he’d have sided with the vile slave owners… perhaps pissing off the northern states to the point of seceding from the United States.
