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.”

Sniffing Out a Drug Addict? (Vid of the Day)

Give this clip the undivided attention it is due. Thom Hartmann and his guest, Dr. Justin Frank frankly discuss the all too real, very scary possibility that the man, in possession of the nuclear launch codes… one Donald J. Trump… is possessed by illicit drugs…  is the worst addict to stagger around our troubled world… barely on two feet.

And should you feel inclined to indulge this blogger a bit… do read on…

Back in the day (c2004)… courtesy of the Air America progressive talk radio network… I became a regular listener of their phone-in format programming… all hosted by liberal talkers, e.g., Randi Rhodes, Rachel Maddow, Mike Malloy and Thom Hartmann. I even have fond memories of my lengthy, on-air conversations with Ms. Rhodes.

Alas, that network of over the air broadcasters, having hit hard financial times, has since gone silent. Worse yet, each and every last damned station within reach of my AM/FM radio, at present, inordinately favors the right wing noise machine… the very source of untruthful, unsavory programming, which could make every critical thinker’s head explode.

Consequently, I’ve lost touch with the above mentioned, Air America alums, whom I still regard to be heroic champions of freedom, truth, justice and the American Way. I’m not exaggerating to claim that their collective, spot-on POV is America’s last chance for survival… i.e. if they’re attracting enough open-minded listeners.

True, these personalities have all gone on to establish and further their careers, elsewhere, but, due to my own budgetary woes, I’ve been unable to continue following them as a paying listener.

But, in the wee hours of this new day, that all changed for the better. YouTube came to my rescue… by offering, at no charge, the Thom Hartmann Program. Reconnecting with Thom is akin to a reunion with a long absent and dearly missed relative. He does, indeed, provide the much needed breath of fresh air to counteract the stench of Donny’s DC swamp.
