Banging my usual drum: stop blaming the poor for Trump. The typical Trump voter is a middle-class white bigot.
I just posted this in the Roundup of Trumpian Events, but maybe it belongs here too:
From the article:
[Quote]“I was more stunned by the reaction of the White House and their handling of it, which seemed to me over-the-top,” Dean said of the Trump administration’s response to Monday’s House intelligence committee hearing on the subject.
“In fact they are in a cover-up mode. There’s just never been any question in my mind about that,” Dean said. “I’ve been inside a cover-up. I know how they look and feel. And every signal they’re sending is ‘we’re covering this up.’”
“This White House is not showing their innocence,” he said. “They’re showing how damn guilty they are, is what we’re seeing.”[/quote]
You know, there are a whole lot of people who are going to be fucked by the people who voted for Trump besides immigrants, religious minorities, and people of color. Like the half of the population who are women, many working in the sciences, and a whole lot more as things begin to crumble as they most certainly will. I don’t think Trump voters are generally poor (though some are). Some are quite wealthy, and many middle class, since they’re the same Republicans who’ve kept voting in past elections for utterly loathsome candidates. They’ve chosen to feed on the fear and hate fed to them by the absolutely delusional hate-mongering propaganda they consume as news. It’s not their social class that makes them bastards, but those hateful, cowardly Trump voting bastards fucked us all badly, and they richly deserve scorn and ire from everyone.
There’s been some great articles from him lately. Thanks for the link.
At least some of the new progressive types in power are there hosting, but the last thing the Democrats need is more Media Matters.
In more projection news.
I don’t know if I’m more offended by his hypocrisy or stupidity. Potentially years in prison, for one vote?
Probably knows loyalty- lover Trump will get him off the hook.
Democrats keep democrating.
That made me laugh pretty hard.
I can’t even.
How are these people not looking around and asking themselves, “Are we the baddies?”
The freedom to die from treatable diseases because you’re too poor is every American’s God-given right!
Sometimes there’s an old tweet that can take on such schadenfreude-laden new meanings a few years later
One more for the schadenfreude archives
It is a good thing I am too far away to dope slap the hell out that guy…
I just can’t even… fuck… what the hell is wrong with people.
