We’re Gonna Need A Bigger Lamp Post

Fascists on the march!

Yesterday, Hair Füror creeped out of the safety of his bunker saw his shadow and now we’re gonna have 6 more weeks of riots and announced from the Rose Garden that he is “mobilizing all available federal resources, civilian and military” to stop violent protests across the country. He accused “professional anarchists, looters, criminals, antifa and others” whose actions have “gripped” the nation.

It was, of course, a lie:

And then Lord Damp Nut, thus having made his first public address on the protests against police brutality, had the police tear-gas (is too a vurb!) peaceful protestors in the park opposite the White House so he could walk to a boarded-up church (that he doesn’t attend)  with a Bible (that he hasn’t read) for a photo-op of him not knowing how to hold a book.

It was a jarring scene as police —in the nation’s capital— forcefully cleared the Yutes of Today gathered legally in a public park on a sunny evening, all of it on live teevee.

Which brought this reaction from the Episcopals who run the joint:

and the official version:

Axios morning email thingie tell us that Opinions Differ!

Not everyone in the White House was thrilled with the church photo op.

  • One senior aide was exuberantly telling friends the photograph of him holding a Bible in front of the church that had been attacked by vandals was an “iconic” moment for the president.
  • But a senior White House official told Axios that when they saw the tear gas clearing the crowd for Trump to walk to the church with his entourage: “I’ve never been more ashamed. I’m really honestly disgusted. I’m sick to my stomach. And they’re all celebrating it. They’re very very proud of themselves.”

Previously in morning, Hair Füror called his boss, Vladimir Putin, during which they discussed the possibility of Russia attending the G7 summit. It’s unclear whether they discussed the protests, but the call preceded Trump’s teleconference with governors during which Trump said that Minnesota had become “a laughingstock all over the world,” and then passed on Vlad’s advice as if it were his own to the governors:

Two points about using the military on civilians:

  • To deploy U.S. active-duty personnel to conduct law enforcement on American soil, the president must invoke the 1807 Insurrection Act. It has been used several times in U.S. history, including by President George H.W. Bush during the 1992 Los Angeles Riots.
  • He didn’t invoke it.

Axios, again:

Legal experts say the president has the authority under the Insurrection Act of 1807 to dispatch the military to states that are unable to put down an insurrection or are defying federal law, AP explains.

  • Presidents have sent the military to Southern states to ensure desegregation of schools, to protect civil rights in the 1950s and 1960s, and to L.A. in 1992 to quell riots after the acquittal of officers in the Rodney King case. [Corrected]

And the military is not happy about about being used like this.

So here’s where we are: Everything is terrible, and with an on-going pandemic and economic crisis, the lights are off in the White House, the prznint is in a bunker taking calls from Russia. Hair Füror cannot and will not unify the country because he is only beholden to Possum Hollar, so instead he’s calling for more brutality, especially since he believes it will only hurt communities of color and the damn Libs. Don’t expect the GOP to stop him, either. Sen. Tom Cotton was calling for air strikes on Minneapolis, true fact!

Lord Damp Nut is inflaming the situation and he is making the case for us: he is incompetent and must not be reelected. There’s no sitting on the fence when the fence is on fire. 

If someone tells you that they still don’t know how they are gonna vote, it means that they are ashamed to be voting for him. Drop that person like a hot rock.

In conclusion, we’re gonna need a bigger lamp post.

Fascists hangin’ out.

    So here we are; Covid-19 and the latest police lynching of a black man have presented Trump with a once in a generation oportunity to invoke an archaic law and consolidate his grip on power, effectively sweeping aside all opposition prior to stage-managing a close to unlosable ‘law and order’ election in November. The deeply flawed nature of the American political system, that concentrates such extraordinary power in the hands of one man, is an absolute gift to any aspiring autocrat of even marginal competence.
    The only thing that just might save American democracy now is Donald Mussolini’s own incompetence and laziness.

    Somehow I just knew that picture of Mussolini et al “hanging out” at that Milan gas station was going to make an appearance.

    If he pushes the military to get involved over the protests of State Governors, shit is really gonna get real.

    From Day-One of the Presidency, I have always feared a fascist takeover and “blood in the streets,” literally and figuratively. He’s a coward at heart, so he may not “pull the trigger” on the threat, but if he does, I don’t think he has anticipated just how bad the blow-back will be.

    I could only watch a few moments of his “speech” yesterday. I had to turn it off when he started talking about protecting “your Second Amendment rights.”

    He needs to do jail time.

    This imposter in the White House, in his latest act of craven cowardice, ordered the gassing of peaceful protesters to clear a walkway to stand in front of a church he doesn’t attend and hold a Bible he doesn’t read.

    We the people must vote out this despicable group of gutter-dwellers and let true leaders step in.

    Vote!

        Redhand,

        That was my thought after learning he spoke to Putin on Monday and then spouted off about “dominating” the populace to the Governors during the conference call soon thereafter. The gassing of the protestors may have been a suggestion of Putin’s, but the theater of his trip to the boarded-up church with his entourage was so ham-handed it had to come from inside the Whitehouse.

    He oughta know, I’m sure he gets feedback from those sending in agitators to give the cops cover for their malfeasance.
    Tom Cotton – that looks like a case of pretzel-think. Let’s call in the military and use them as domestic terrorists to quell the domestic terrorism.

    The thing is, if insurrection is what Merriam Webster says (an act or instance of revolting against civil authority or an established government) then the first wave of insurrection in this drama (sorry, don’t mean to be flippant, but trying to get the thought out there) is the cops. They have not been encouraged to obey the laws, the source of “civil authority or an established government”, in fact they have been encouraged to violate those laws. Paid administrative leave for an extrajudicial killing? Yeah, that sounds like an off-the-books vacation, doesn’t it? “Grab some beers and your best girlfriend, boys, it’s time to hit the beach and party, I got the next week off with pay! And leave the wife and kiddies at home! ”
    That whole claim of insurrection, the basis of all this governmental violence and hostility, seems, to me, to be based on a fractured idea of what the U.S. citizenry is composed of. The arguments for these thugs’ rhetoric and actions falls apart unless you define the citizenry as only them. They do give Reagan’s army of service workers permission to live in their country – but only the “good” service workers, they ones who service the rich and powerful as the masters they believe themselves to be, and that permission is not meant to be taken as permission to live well.
