The GOP And The Ongoing Misappropriation Of Reason

Liberals are continuing to make a profound mistake hoping for some republican reformation, a day when the Trumpsters of the world will turn some ideological corner toward reason. Even after the next line of political debacles, no matter how costly, their zenwrongness will hold steady. Essentially 1 in 3 people in this country are impervious to reality. Most citizens are ill-informed, for sure, but this one swath of society has almost no chance of joining the vaguely sentient any time soon. They are locked in this political death spiral, forever tacking toward delusion, even as their champion of freedom gets one step closer to legal, economic, and political disaster every day. Liberals are sill holding onto the notion that, post Trump’s carnage, many will see the error of their ways and embrace some more sophisticated worldview. Let me dispel that notion today, in fact, let’s take said notion and separate if from its family, tear gas it, and banish it to parts south.

I keep hearing pundits on both sides of the aisle predicting how Trumpism will tarnish the GOP for a generation. I heard the same rhetoric under Dubya, some even from yours truly. See? I can be wrong. Hell, three of the last five republican president’s will occupy the bottom tier of presidential rankings. Their only descent commander in chief in my lifetime had dementia. These people aren’t going to just wake up and smell the covfefe one day. And, even if they do, someone should probably have a Risperdal consta shot on the ready. Being deprived of reality for this long might have some lingering side effects.

My friend and blogvesary thinks immigration reform is our biggest threat today. Seriously? Here’s our actual ‘to do’ list:

  1. The Impeachment of the president of the united states post the Mueller report. Impeachment when obstruction is proven, and possible annulment if conspiracy charges are proven. My friend says there’s zero evidence of wrongdoing, which is an astounding statement in the wake of what we already know.
  2. Mitigate, or preferably disband, the resentnik party, which today consists of some healthy portions of greed and hatred.
  3. Address pollution and climate change and resume a leading role in this endeavor. End coal, head greenward, reduce pollution, restore the EPA to its original glory. This is the first year global CO2 has risen again in several years. Coincidence?
  4. Fix our healthcare system and move toward single payer.
  5. Restore safegaurds to avoid the next economic collapse.
  6. Pave the way for a reunion of the surviving members of the Jackson Five.
  7. Begin a process to send every movie on Netflix directly to those MST 3000 people.
  8. Pass comprehensive immigration reform that includes border security.

Why are you jumping to number 8, Poke? What do have against the surviving Jacksons? The first two are key. We have to start there, or we will do everything else wrong (see: history). Trump is attacking judges, attacking the media, and has already attempted to use the DOJ to arrest his political adversaries.  If this isn’t resonating, what does authoritarianism mean to you? If everyone at the border got in, right now, we would still be below Bushian immigration levels. Sure this issue deserves to be on the list, because as the world falls apart more folks will be arriving. But you keep missing the Yuuge story. When the Mueller report uncovers some serious wrongdoing, Trump will do anything to save his skin. That will become some serious constitutional schitznik. Not the usual, Dem found guilty steps down in disgrace. It will be more like Trump ignores findings and arrests his accusers. He is the greatest threat our country faces. There’s been nothing like this in our adult lifetime, with some Nixonian exceptions, of course.

At this point it’s not hyperbole to refer to the GOP as a fear-driven fascist cult. They have an answer for everything and always the wrong one. Here’s a refresher course:


2008 Economic Crash = Barney Frank (not the two unnecessary land wars on the credit card during the Bush tax cuts)

Socialism = Venezuela (not every other free industrialized society on Earth, just Venezuela)

Fascism = Liberal safe spacers (not your authoritative, republic ending ass-clown in office)

As for the future:

The next economic crash = Liberals took one chamber in the midterms.

Trump destroys world = It’s your fault for nominating Hillary.

The damning findings in the Mueller report = Pardon based on the bias of Stzrok and Page text.

See how it works? Wrong is always on speed dial. Bonfire of the Hannitys? Did I use that one?

The Foxeteers believe that by destabilizing this country we are safer, alliances and compromise are signs of weakness, and the threat of NK is over and the Iran Deal, which was actually working, was a lie. They are the let’s break it to find out what’s in it, people. If they were one person, they would be sitting in a pile of their own filth pulling the wings off of bugs. The damage is done. The rightwing distractions, no matter how ludicrous, irrelevant and endless, have worked. And there’s plenty of blame to go around.

My spidey senses say Mueller might be wrapping this up soon, so buckle your seat belts, kids.

    what exactly is your definition of “attack” in reference to judges or media.

    attack=to say mean things?

    Use DOJ to arrest political adversaries?

    Your stretching Zano.

    I will acknowledge that Trump has authorized drone strikes against people without due process. I would like to see Congress put an end to this.

      I know it’s only NYTs coverage, a bit of a stretch these days.

        Yeah, you stretched “wanted to use DOJ” into “attempted to use DOJ.” There are many things that I want to do that I choose not to do (consider yourself lucky)–I am held responsible for only those things that I actually do.

        But in my opinion, Clinton and Comey have committed provable crimes while in office that are worthy of prosecution. So why not prosecute them?u

          i agree with both ‘wanted’ and ‘stretched’. What are we talking about?

            I want to clarify, but I know it’s a bit of a stretch to expect that my attempt to…oh never mind.

            The NYTs article you sited said that Trump WANTED to use the DOJ to go after his political adversaries; but you reported that Trump ATTEMPTED to use the DOJ. I am pointing out that “to want” implies no action, while “to attempt” does imply action; therefore you have wanted, attempted, and succeeded in “stretching” the actual facts of the matter to make Trump appear to be dictatorial.

      A person can only commit conspiracy in relationship to an actual crime. If Trump actually conspired with the Russians to hack the DNC, then you’ve got something, otherwise this is desperation on the part of the Special Counsel to find something, ANYTHING to justify their existence and their wasting of taxpayer money.(The Special Counsel is worse than the PA Liquor Control Board)

        If you’re not desperate, you’re not paying attention. Nevermind, we’ve already established that.

          desperation tends to distort one’s attention into delusional fixation

    Statism–the common feature all systems of Tyrannical Powers of Centralized Control whether they be fascist communist or social dictatorship–is the economic regulation of private industry by the state.

    Mick Zano has done us the great favor of outlining an 8-point plan for implementing a state system of centralized control.

    Step 1) Overthrow any democratically elected opposition to the aspiring Tyrannical Powers. This can best be achieved by infiltrating various parts of the military, judicial, and intelligence agencies exploit their bureaucratic positions to frame the “leader” by orchestrating a narrative that justifies the legitimacy of your coup.

    Step 2) Destroy any political opposition to your centralized control of power. Its helpful to use your media outlets to constantly characterize all of your political adversaries as “racists,” “rapists,” or “fascists.” If you repeat this process long enough, the names will stick and the general population will ignore their policy suggestions and look forward to your destroying of these people.

    Step 3) Create an alarmist narrative that guarantees cataclysmic destruction UNLESS people grant your Tyrannical Powers of Centralized Control the right to regulate all of the energy industry.

    Step 4) Offer people free health care if they allow you Tyrannical Powers of Centralized Control to regulate all aspect of healthcare, medicine, and insurance (25% of American economy)

    Step 5) Offer people, including illegal aliens (I mean undocumented immigrants) access to the public treasury (i.e.. the rich white men) to pay for their food, housing, healthcare, and education. Create a needy population who will never have the means of standing independent of your “help.” Then you can be assured that they will never bite the hand that feeds them.

    Step 6) Fund genetic research that works to engineer a clone of Michael Jackson so that that the Jackson Five’s entertaining performance can distract people from the utter misery and futility of their lives. While we’re at it–genetically engineer a clone of Andrew Jackson to help the Democratic Party create reservations for rich white Republicans.

    Step 7) I got nothin’

    Step 8) Bring back the gang of 8 to pass lip service security while creating a pathway to citizenship for all of the illegal aliens (I mean undocumented voters) who are now dependent upon our welfare programs and eager to give complete support to your Tyrannical Powers of Centralized Control.
