Trumpism: Fascism über alles

I cannot emphasize enough how closely the body politic in the US rightwing relies on the surety and decisiveness that a strong-arm law and order can command. A streamlined top-down command structure that responds to the command of a Führer. Fascism is but a single election away. The party of Trump is already flowing in the blood of US Fascism. The legislature votes in lockstep with the aims of America First , there is no center conceivable to functionaries who vote as one, the leftwing gets eliminated.

Where go one, we go all — the motto of Qanon

The failed putsch of January 6, 2021 demonstrates just how deeply white-supremacism extends to the marrow. Turning off the mind is a knee-jerk response that signals party will, something already programmed in the AI of a mindless political loyalty.

Marjorie Taylor Greene is not a random aberrant odd shooter. She follows a coded predictable squeal of blind ambition that serves to bring cancer to every organ of the body politic. Greene’s was an uncontested win, yet her opponent still received 25% of the vote. Mindlessness becomes a political necessity, it is lobotomy by proxy.

Citizens United has made governance by billionaires a reality. Equal opportunity under the law no longer exists. Human rights get crushed under the heels of fascist boots. The Electoral College determines the direction, thereby outweighing the popular vote, the college allows the conservative voters to command more political force than states with strong progressive voters.

Joe Biden is a product of the US Senate. He is a master of compromise. He is an active loyalist of the Prison-Industrial System, a pawn of AIPAC, a military funder loyal to every office in the Pentagon. These three features already define his presidency.

Trump ignited the America First base, his legacy provides the skeleton of a spineless GOP. The conversion of the GOP into the party of Trump is already written in stone, it replaces the traditional party platform with God, guns, and greed. The prosperity gospel identified by a Bible illiterate as One Corinthians.

  • God is created in the image of Trump.
  • Guns echo the militia mentality of the GOP.
  • Greed recognizes the drive to replace billionaires with trillionaires.

Thanks for reading.

  1. Dear Bill,

    Nicely put and well said! I can imagine you yelling “Down with Trumpism! No to Fascism!

    I wonder whether there is/are typo(s) in your expression “the popular vote outweighs the popular vote”.

    By the way, I would like to inform you that my post entitled “Misquotation Pandemic and Disinformation Polemic: Mind Pollution by Viral Falsity” has been greatly extended and is now divided into twelve sections, each of which can be accessed instantly from the navigational menu at the top of the post.

    Happy March to you!

          1. Dear Bill,

            Should you be able to explain in detail and well-reasoned prose how and why reducing mind pollution is to become a global citizen by submitting a comment to my said post, I shall immortalize your comment as a display quotation in the body proper of “Misquotation Pandemic and Disinformation Polemic: Mind Pollution by Viral Falsity“. I have already done so for a few of my commenters.

          2. Dear Bill,

            Thank you for informing me about your newest post entitled “Global Citizenry”, which I have read and liked, though I have not been able to find any quotable material(s) there.

            I would like to suggest that you take the time to examine closely and familiarize yourself with some or all of the display quotations (meaning quotes that are not presented in-line but are displayed in their own rectangles within the discussions in the post) to get a very good sense of the style, content and relevance of those chosen quotations.

            May you have a lovely weekend!

    1. Happy Pi Day, Hariod. I value your comments and compliments greatly. Thanks for following me, my friend. Have just published another blog entry “News from the Manor” to make my blogging presence less hazy than usual. Four posts in four days, a way to keep up with the time as well as Daylight Day and to celebrate pi with pie.
      Wishing you a good appetite and effective distancing from the Covids. Mask well, Lone Ranger saith Tonto!
