I originally posted this to Earth-Bound Misfit blog. It sums up how we got into this deadly mess.
That’s the scary and sad part of the trump presidency. Over 40% of American voters are rascist, mysoginist, cruel and selfish. And not just in the treason states south of the Mason/Dixon line either. Plenty of trump lovers in California, Oregon and everywhere else.
And you can’t blame trump for the conditions that brought him to power. Since Reagan the rich, aided by the GOP and Rupert Murdock-presently rotting in hell, have steadily and relentlessly stolen the nation’s wealth from the workers who create that wealth.
Also aided by fake Democrats like the Clintons and Obama.
Trump, though proudly stupid and ignorant, has a genius for exploiting the obvious decline of the middle, working class whites to scapegoat the ‘other’ to spread division and turmoil. Exactly like Mussolini and Herr Shicklegruber.
Trump didn’t cause the decline of the fortune of working people since Reagan. The rich, the Republic Party and Fox ‘News’ caused it. Trump just cleverly used it to ride to power.
[He was] Also aided by Mrs Clinton’s election blunders, the slave master friendly electoral college and the traditional subversive talent of the Russians.
It only takes a small nudge to swing an election when the country is so divided. And trump got just enough. To his own surprise more than anyone elses.
