If you show the least bit of dishonor or cannot pass a
loyalty litmus test, your GOP street cred is in serious
doubt and you may be cast as a questionable soldier in the
fight for the purity of America and all things cherished and
The GOP operatives in states such as Hawaii Oregon,
Texas, Arizona are teeing up their energy to purge their
respective state parties of any laggards who are not in lock
step with the personality cult of Herr Trump.
Although Trump has been exorcised from the White
House, his presence and “power” [?] is still an overwhelming
influence on his base which howls, in union, to the moon
when their dear leader makes his presence known.
Time will tell as to the success of the voting machine
company, Dominion Voting System’s, lawsuit against Attorneys
Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell for their repeated coarse
and baseless lies that the company was engaged in massive
voter fraud and that the company was the brainchild of the
late dictator Hugo Chavez of Venezuela (he died in 2013).
Trump has hit the motherlode with his ceaseless year in
and year out lies about democracy, voting, equality, racial
hatred and just pure vileness against those whom he has
deemed enemy of the people, including the media that rebuke
Tragically, his base, seemingly not able to extricate
themselves from their
mis-information bubble about what is up and what is down and
even believing, for purposes of exaggeration, that water is
really dry and not wet, have knighted Trump their hero who
will save them from all of those who would ask them to
simply objectively repudiate the nonsense about an election
Remember…it was not Trump who has caused these Grand
Canyon divisions in the culture. He only exacerbated what
was lying beneath the thin level of America’s civility and
their (not all) latent hostility about all things racial.
Trump was the proverbial canary in the coal mine but in
this instance, he survived the coal mine and sanctioned
America’s unresolved racial animus; and especially so when
one reckons that the attempt to overturn the election
results centers around five to six urban black areas in
several swing states.
The GOP is not winning converts to its cause and
coupled with the declining birth rate of white America and
the party becoming a mostly all white and older party, that
will doom them to minority party status unless they can
suppress the black and brown vote and maintain the Electoral
College which is skewed towards white rural America.
For all practicable purposes, the presently
constituted GOP is now the Party Of Trump (P.O.T.) and
because of his narcissism and cynical view of democracy, he
will continue to cause mind rot wherever he speaks and will
not tame his voracious appetite to cause chaos and division
whenever it suits his purposes.
As you may have heard, there are published statement
from the GOP faithful that the recent invasion of the
Capitol Building was in fact a, “false flag” (a staged
event, planned by the political opposition) undertaking done
not by Trump supporters but by those who wanted to shame and
discredit the followers of Trump! Go figure.
Ten dollars to a donut that the feckless GOP senate
will not convict him of encouraging sedition because those
pusillanimous members are terrified of being primaried and
losing a fat cat job that they know that they cannot
replicate in the real world.
If I were to compose the oath that these sycophants
were to take in allegiance to Herr Trump, it would recite as
“I (insert your name) before both nation and flag commit my
resources and body to the furtherance of the P.O.T. I
solemnly pledge that I will faithfully pledge my time and
efforts to the making of America as it was before. I will
defend and fight any person or institution that will assert
itself against the P.O.T. Furthermore, I will promote the
glorious goals of the P.O.T. in all my endeavors and will
strive to be a loyal member to this great cause that has
been given divine direction.”
We live in interesting times.
