The nation is witnessing the outcry of the people through the numerous protests on our city streets….
We could go into all sorts of sociological theories to point the finger at the culprit….but leave it to Donald the Orange to assign blame…..
Nope not Obama, per se…..not the media (for a change)….not even China…..this time it is the democrats…..
As protests erupted across the US for the fourth consecutive night over the death of George Floyd on Friday evening, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to urge people in Minnesota, where Floyd was killed, to vote out Democrats.
“Time for a change! #2020,” Trump said, retweeting the account @YoungDems4Trump, which listed the party affiliations of several Democratic elected officials in Minnesota.
As usual the person that some call “Mr. President” blames everybody handy or the last person he had on that meager mind….
This situation needs a strong leader of the American people and we get a dunce in the corner.
Then there are those weak kneed sycophants of Donald that carry his water for him….spineless ones like Ted Cruz….
It didn’t go well.
Trump has repeatedly railed against former President Barack Obama, claiming “Obamagate” is the “biggest political crime in American history” without offering any details on what that supposed crime is.
When asked by a reporter to explain it earlier this month, Trump simply said, “You know what the crime is.”
On Wednesday, MSNBC analyst and editor of The Recount John Heilemann replied to Trump’s latest “Obamagate” tweet with another request for an explanation.
That’s when Cruz stepped in it:
This is assassination by innuendo……a classic propaganda trick….to accuse without proof and let the listener fill in the blanks.
Simpletons….being led by a mental midget disguised as the president.
At what point do Americans wake up to this fact?
Personally I feel it is too wide an expansion to be healed…..and the republic’s end is near if something does not change….and I see no chance of that happening……
Since the founding of the United States, politicians and pundits have warned that partisanship is a danger to democracy. George Washington, in his Farewell Address, worried that political parties, or factions, could “allow cunning, ambitious and unprincipled men” to rise to power and subvert democracy. More recently, many political observers are concerned that increasing political polarization on left and right makes compromise impossible, and leads to the destruction of democratic norms and institutions.
A new study, however, suggests that the main threat to our democracy may not be the hardening of political ideology, but rather the hardening of one particular political ideology. Political scientists Steven V. Miller of Clemson and Nicholas T. Davis of Texas A&M have released a working paper titled “White Outgroup Intolerance and Declining Support for American Democracy.” Their study finds a correlation between white American’s intolerance, and support for authoritarian rule. In other words, when intolerant white people fear democracy may benefit marginalized people, they abandon their commitment to democracy.
I have said many times that the old Franklin cartoon tells the tale of this country and may be predicting the future….
Just a thought for a Sunday.
