On January 6, 2021, Donald J. Trump ordered his private army of domestic terrorists (a.k.a. right wing radicals, Klansmen, Nazis and boneheaded bootlicker oddballs) to storm the U.S. Capitol building. In essence…
The (in title only) President of the United States of America had actually ordered HIS attack AGAINST the United States of America.
In better, bygone days, by now, unified Americans’ righteous indignation would’ve demanded that any insurrection inciting president, bare minimum, be speedily impeached, convicted and banned, forevermore, from seeking / attaining all future elective office. Also, the accompanying murdering, maiming and malicious destruction of property would’ve resulted in a slew of criminal court cases where returned guilty verdicts and prompt sentencing would lodge the X-prez within the nearest maximum security prison or, in lieu of that, a mental institution.
Yet, here America (barely?) stands one month later. Only the subversiveness and subservience of Trump’s cohorts and co-conspirators allow him to still remain at large; to still revel within his grotesquely gaudy, golden lifestyle; to still fuel his threats to seek reelection come 2024.
While Trump’s U.S. Senate Impeachment Trial is slated to commence next week, the only anticipated, unified righteous indignation will involve the feelings of 50 Democrats and, at best, only 5 Republicans.
Alas, 55 votes will fall far short of the 67 necessary to convict Trump / deep six his delusions for a political resurrection. While the magnitude of his treason should result in 100 votes to convict, I won’t be holding my breath.
The unacceptable reality check? Trump’s virtually guaranteed, totally indefensible acquittal could / likely will green light his re-ascendancy; hammer the final nails into our homeland’s coffin; bury Liberty, Democracy and the American Dream.
I don’t know what is more effing depressing here; Donald J. Trump’s attempted coup d’état, itself, or the fact that, once again, there he’ll sit, laughing his fat Fascist fanny off from the knowledge that he can always do whatever he fucking pleases with impunity.
Hell, even if he never wins another election again, what of the countless Fascist wannabes who’ll, someday (likely soon) seek the presidency? Those who’ll be far more efficient at overthrowing America than Trump had been? Who’ll view Trump’s “get out of jail free card” as a legal precedent for establishing their own…
Anything Goes, You Can’t Touch Me, Anti-American Agenda
Long sigh. Folks, you wouldn’t believe the number of times, this past month, that I’ve attempted / failed to adequately express these sentiments; all the strength it took to fight off my “Oh, WTF is the use?” mentality.
I mean, how the hell does one even begin to blog when the content could best be summed up in two words:
Stay Publicly / Properly Masked!
Stay Safe at Home!
