Don't Call Him Deplorable


The President has given us another glimpse into Donald Trump's America, circa 2021.

The Republican National Convention has been filled withencomiums to the President, portraying him as honest, compassionate, and generous as any person ever.

But Donald Trump himself wants you to know what he has in store for you if he is re-elected.  In late May, the President tweeted "just spoke to (Minnesota) Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!" (Thank you?)

Three months later the President would stage-manage the Republican National Convention, where wealthy couple Mark and Patricia McCloskey  were given roughly four minutes to spin their way into the hearts of the fed up with black people crowd. “Not a single person in the out-of-control mob you saw at our house was charged with a crime. But you know who was? We were,” Mr. McCloskey stated.

It's just a guess but it may be because Mark brandished a rifle, and Patricia a pistol, at protesters peacefully marching past their mansion in a gated community.



Vigilantism is, in the might makes right party, a benefit, not a bug. In something less than a big upset

The law enforcement–obsessed 17-year-old who was charged with shooting and killing two people and injuring another in Kenosha, Wisconsin, during protests for Jacob Blake appeared in the front row at a Donald Trump rally in January.

Kyle Howard Rittenhouse’s social media presence is filled with him posing with weapons, posting “Blue Lives Matter,” and supporting Trump for president. Footage from the Des Moines, Iowa, rally on Jan. 30 shows Rittenhouse feet away from the president, in the front row, to the left of the podium. He posted a TikTok video from the event.

Then on Wednesday night at the convention, the GOP painted an apocalyptic vision of the future, Democratic governors, riots galore, and cities ablaze, with President Biden. There was no mention of Kyle Rittenhouse. It's only with people like him that Donald Trump's goal of twelve more years can be fulfilled.
