I’m not big on birthday celebrations, but I made it to 50-years-old as of June 16, 2018 - also known as #Caturday on The Plex Podcast and it felt strangely like a genuine accomplishment.
Shifty-fifty. I’m a Jew, but it shouldn’t matter. I didn’t think about it growing up, as my maternal grandparents had chosen not to practice or even discuss our ethnicity and the religion they left behind. Why does it matter now? Because the Nazis are back. Children are being separated from their parents and incarcerated, under the watchful eye of The Great Leader of the USA - on our watch. On my watch.
Today, the POTUS held a scapegoating press event, where victims’ families were trotted out so a madman could shamelessly and cynically use their grief for his evil Nazi campaign of ethnic cleansing.
Accordingly, “my watch” will include the POTUS’ ongoing reality show. Today’s episode was a shocker - and the cast was well prepared to deliver the drama that makes for compelling reality TV.
Below is my real-time reaction and review:
Today, June 22, 2018, I’m watching a Presidential Press Conference for you - dear, Echoplex Media Friends. I can hardly contain my rage and vomit, but this will be a historic shit-show. Here we go!
The dickbag Nazi scum is starting the White House press con by acting dictatorially smug, in-control, and very business-as-usual - unconvincingly thanking government officials with a, “please, thank you.”
Now onto the scapegoating! “Very unfair,” an actual standing, breathing POTUS comments. “We’re gathered today to hear directly from the American victims of illegal immigration.” So, the fascist blood orgy is on.
“These are the American Citizens permanently separated from their loved ones,” he begins. Trump now goes to great lengths to endlessly repeat and define the word “permanently,” as if it’s a complex concept - employing word salad to portray his reality show character as an activist and benevolent savant - “...because they were killed by criminal illegal aliens.”
“I hear you. I see you and I won’t let you down,” pledges the child-molesting sociopath.
“These are the families the media ignores. They don’t talk about ‘em - very unfair,” says Trump with wholly unconvincing compassion. “Incredible people.” This monster is using the grief of - oh, jesus, wait for it - “Angel Families,” to justify his concentration camps and inhumane policies. False equivalencies are powerful tools of purely malevolent ignorance.
“Nobody sees the grief of illegal immigrant crimes.” Trump claims immigrants are “people that will continuously get into trouble and do bad things.” Now, it’s time to bring the cult into the fold and this Nazi madman knows how to connect with his base.
“We call these brave Americans ‘the Angel Families. Angel Moms. Angel Pops.’” It’s a Christianist Crusade for the Nazi pimp POTUS! He’s off and running into crime stats he claims are associated to immigration - no context - but lots bigly numbers. “You don’t hear that,” spouts the leader of the free world. “It’s like they have better people than our citizens. It’s not true,” pleads the smug orange-faced, red-tied POTUS monster.
The economic anxiety of “they took our jobs,” forms an innocently humorous memory compared to the pure hatred of today’s Trump Cult xenophobia. “Where is the outrage over the MS-13 and its bloodthirsty creed - kill, rape, and control?” Donny’s using blindingly graphic tales of human horror to spur on purposeful inhuman madness. His craven usage of these families and their repulsive stories of heinous torture and murder is despicable.
“Thank you Mr. Trump and Vice President Trump,” says the grieving mother of a 16-year-old murdered child. “We weren’t lucky enough to be separated for five-days or ten-days,” says the terribly confused and overly enthusiastic law-and-order oozing mother, Laura. She loves Trump and worships cops!
The next man, a clearly distraught Hispanic father whose daughter was murdered in an “artichoke field” in 1990, ironically calls the Nazi scum, “Candidate Trump.” What a Regime rimming shitshow! Grieving Mr. Pena claims he’s “speaking for thousands of victims.”
“Incredible job, incredible job - how ya doin’,” says the leader of the free world, as he introduces the next tragically out-of-place fear propagandist, Steve from Mesa, Arizona. Steve’s son was senselessly murdered in a convenience store robbery, and this balding white man and publicly grieving father breathes Republican hellfire. “But this is a permanent separation,” Steve sells, as he wishes “some of our media had the same integrity,” of The Regime. Again, the “permanent separation” - it’s apparently the propaganda we’ll have to fight and endure.
Yet another mother states, “our separation, like everyone has said - is permanent.” False equivalences and scapegoating are proverbial pillars of Nazi platforms. Trump is the self-appointed HERO of TODAY and the families are his grateful victims - the pitiable pawns in his Regime's fascist parade.
Trump fights for them, therefore America must become a walled-in terror state and Hermit Kingdom. Kim Jong! Trump does not poop!
This press conference is a travesty of vomit inducing fascism and anecdotal stories of gut-wrenching grief. “Contact us. We have close connections at ICE,” brags a mother. What the actual fuck does that mean?!
Now a white woman with red hair gets up and says, “I’m one of your legal immigrants. I came the right way. I paid lots of money.” Jesus wept, and these stupid cult victims let their hatred turn them into willing servants of a modern-day Hitler.
Fear, Fear, Fear - it’s how Trump does what he does so very well. Will Republicans keep buying it? Yep. They’re fully behind this genocide. Republicans shamelessly justify their hidden concentration camps and inhumane actions.
This vile Regime Reality Show was a shameful production of vomitous racist torture porn. There are no words to describe how much I hate Donny Trump.
Finally, I find SALVATION!
MSNBC cut away and there’s no way I’m going to watch more on another channel. As I tune-out, Anchor Katy Tur is already debunking the claims of the vigilante horde at the press con.
It’s really no matter. Anyone left on the Trump Train to infamy simply believes what they want to believe. God damn, I’m ashamed of our United States of America and the rubes that form a large percentage of our shitty and unworthy citizenry.
Fight on, like your life depends upon it. ~Jeff
