Then they came for _________ !

What if, worst case scenario (from the perspective of We the Enlightened Inclusive People), Donald J. Trump’s boneheaded bigotry goes full blown Hitler… i.e., he commits genocide and America winds up lily white. Would that mean that he and his Klansmen and Nazi pals… from their perspective of course… could all live happily ever after?

Don’t count on it. If Trump had nobody left to vilify, how would that narcissist ever be able to continue drawing attention to himself / get suckers to suck up to him / get racists to rally around him / maintain his choke-hold on power?

Obviously, he would declare new Enemies of the State to “fine tune” HIS Master Race.

Little doubt he’d next target Democrats, Liberals, Intellectuals, Muslims, Jews, Feminists (and like-minded males), the LGBTQIA’s, the Aged and Infirm, the Left Handed and (factoring in his objectification of women / penchant for porn stars and playmates), perhaps everybody below a C-cup?

Hell, he could even order his underlings to hack into the data bases of genomics and biotechnology companies… i.e. to ferret out anyone who’s not a “perfect” 100% Caucasian?

If you find yourself saying, “Nah, that all sounds too farfetched. It’ll never happen!”… well… let’s just say that were theologian Martin Niemöller, still alive today, he’d shrewdly disagree by saying…

“First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”

One Cannot Fight Fire With Fire

 

Indubitably, at issue, here, are #45’s draconian policies… those which severely discriminate against and mercilessly attack the young, aged and ailing… the vanishing middle class and impoverished… women and the LGBTQ community… ethnic minorities and non-Christians… and last but not least… respected scientists and other intellectuals.

While Americans freely expressing their outrage against such a tyrant is one of our Constitutionally guaranteed, 1st Amendment, free speech rights, stand-up comedian Kathy Griffin’s protest… to say the very least… was beyond the pale. Her posing with a bloodied, decapitated effigy of #45 succeeded in demonstrating one and only one thing… she had stooped down to his level.

Forever(?) lost in that gruesome imagery is how #45’s extremist policies are destined to figuratively decapitate all amongst those abovementioned demographics.

The only thing good that can be said about this Griffin incident is her acknowledging the madness to her method. Said she…

“I went way too far. It wasn’t funny. I get it.”

Indeed, Griffin’s shocking brand of social and political commentary never was… never is… and never will be acceptable. For her to protest in this manner was to become the very bully which #45 is and always shall be.

Worse yet, Griffin has escalated the feeding frenzy of violence, which #45 incited and ignited during his 2016 campaign and which… to this very day… his narrow victory has only served to enflame and embolden. What she did has only served to intensify the support, sympathy and hero worship felt by his (by and large) deplorable, white supremacist base.

And, while #45 has called out Griffin, undoubtedly deeming her totally blameworthy, would it be wrong to ask him to finger the actual culprit who started it all? To do so, all that narcissist need do is simply step in front of the nearest mirror.

In the end… Kathy Griffin’s fighting fire with fire only further inflames a society… in all likelihood… one already heading towards an all out conflagration.
