A Nation Awash In Trumpism

Let start with a very quick look and listen to what I consider the archetypal Trump supporter. No, the woman you are about to hear (for only 50 seconds) isn't Michelle Bachmann, but she obviously suffers from Chronic hatred of our president. As I viewed her portion of the CNN panel, My mind offered comforting thoughts about how my social and political views are diametrically opposite her clear hatred.

Demeanor aside, the key reason or our focus on the bundle of hatred in blue is her assertion of a lying president and her obvious devotion to a Trump.  She is the perfect sycophant as she not only implies she buys Trump hook, line, and sinker, she states with non-verbals how Trumps speaks for a large portion of conservative voters. 
The angst filled CNN panelist is either overcome with celebrity worship, paid for her on camera angst, or she has social issues that include constant rightwing media and a tendency o never visit fact-checkers. Actually, I strongly suspect  the panelist is inflicted with all conditions.

The irate panelist pointed to her head and says, he speaks for us.  It doesn't take much to realize Trumps bigoted and racism is not only popular among his viewers, some admit he speaks their core beliefs.  

A friend of the TPI and founder of AddcitingInfo posted a comment on Facebook that sheds a telling light on the irate panelists (group speak) comments.

Matthew Desmond
So far Donald J. Trump has attacked ALL Mexicans (not just immigrants), black people (by encouraging his supporters to attack a ‪#‎BlackLivesMatter‬supporter, and then defending it), women (through Megyn Kelly), veterans and POWs (by attacking John McCain for his service), disabled people (by mocking a disabled reporter and then doubling down on it), and every single member of the world's second largest religion (Islam).

End Desmond comment.


"I am doing good for the Muslims."  What is it about those words remind so much of the image to the left above? Trump sat with CNN's Trump facilitator, Don Lemon, during a segment in which he gave a response other utter words that truly bring back horrific memories of the evils demagogues eventually perpetrated against the European and Russian Jews.

Reaction to Trumps remarks beyond his seething sycophants hasn't been positive.  Foreign leaders have commented about  his bigoted remarks. From Britain's Prime Minister to the recent cancellation of his planned trip to Israel, reactions have been consistent and disdainful. 

International reaction pales compared to reactions from the preponderance of US media.  Of particular note is Fox New's Chief Bloviator, Bill O'Reilly,  hosting segments with Trump and noted anti-Obama haters to entertain his audience. Bill O'Reilly recently reached his huge cable news (conservative audience) by booking Trump for a segment with no serious nor constructive purpose. If Trump isn't inclined to listen to anyone on his staff who might (at great risk) suggest he tone down his rhetoric, why would he listen to O'Reilly's cautions? Therefore, the following O'Reilly segment is mere fodder for his viewers.

O'Reilly Vs Trump

Did O'Reilly seriously try to quell fervent demagoguery from Stuart Varney and Lou Dobbs? While the segment was good for Fox viewers, it was as fruitless as pouring expecting US conservatives to embrace diversity. Obama haters simply are not people who lend themselves to rational thought and subsequent behavior. Let's fail to acknowledgment seven years of hate-laced yelling, desk-beating,  and on-air emotional breakdowns helped to pave a path for Trumpism.

We will end with a couple of anecdotal items.  Trump recently quoted outlandish survey data while speaking with a host on CNN.  Closer Scrtunity via Media Matters shows the survey was from a ridiculous poll from Frank Gaffney. 

Harrison Ford has commented about Trumps comments about Trumps use of a movie characters as a prop for his carnival barking facade of the tough guy. We are seeing more and more right wing use of fictional movie characters and creative scripts as desired models for a president.

Do you recall Joe Scarborough's assessment that President Obama would be better to pattern his leadership after characters in the showtime series: Homeland?
Joe Scarborough Peter Quinn (Homeland) on why the West does not have the will to win the war against Terror. Scarborough goes full "Quinn."

I suppose US conservatism really does live in a fantasy world. The problem is, their regressive ideology and their devotion of creative script writers is danger to the greater society (you and me.) StumbleUpon
