As Trump 's World Turns: Rallies, The Strange And The Hidden Ones

Image may contain: 12 people
Image may contain: 4 people, crowd
Trump delivered two rally yells this week. One in Florida and the other in Ohio. In both rallies, Trump's delivered oratory comparable to that of famous leaders in Europe during the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s (through 1944).

Trump's audiences heard a sermon unequaled from a US President. From outright lies through threats of jailing Hillary Clinton. He whipped up the Florida crowd to a level of seething and boiling physical manifestations. We saw and heard obscene hand gestures, obscene yelling, lowlife signage and threats to CNN's Jim Acosta.

Of course, my perspective is that of a liberal who finds Trump s reprehensible person. Let's take a look at FOXPEN'S (Fox Propaganda And Entertainment Network) Mind shapers for their perspective on Trump's oozfests.

It seems the two Fox propagandist found qualities in the speech many rational Americans would feel: really." 
"He was positive, he was funny. But more importantly, he had a message of success."
Politifacts ran an analysis regarding the veracity of one Jeanne Pirro. The rating was "FALSE" for those who didn't visit the link. Point being? All people get things wrong at times, it appears Pirro as a member of the Trump communications team shares Trump's penchant for lying.

A message of Success?

Does the Fox News propagandist mean Trump's remarks about the US Steel industry?  

You knew what follows was cue'd-up, right? No there is no "six" steel producing plants opening-up.  We located a Politifact "False."

We shouldn't forget how he fed his audience regarding trade and "Space."

Success?  I posit Pirro and Tucker Carlson know better and are fulfilling their lucrative Fox News role (contracts).  Alas, I digress.

More success?

Unbelievable in its ridiculousness.

Of course, we will not post the full Trump video of his rallies. The previous snippets offer insight into Trump's world and the world of those who literally worship the man. Let's take a look at a growing sect in Trump's world.  A sect embodied with conspiracy theories and other traits which most Americans do not share.


The New York Times on Qanon

It shouldn't surprise rational people when we have examples of what follows as a guidepost. 

The FaceBook page developer of Now This published a great three-minute video regarding eight of Trump's most whacked-out episodes of carnival barking.

And then there is this.....

1500 Immigrant Children Unaccounted For; Blame Dems

It's not 'cruel' to separate families at the border — children will be 'put into foster care or whatever'

Image result for homeland security ICE

Allow this as a start to the perfect example of an American long gone and a future of horrors. Trump blames a sick and unfathomable immigration policy of Democrats.

Now the horror.

"....or whatever."

If you know US politics (Ideology and practice) you know conservatives and their GOP are vehement in their opposition to immigration. The US is comprised of over a hundred million people who oppose the very fabric (immigration the 18th century) which was a foundation of the so-called "New World." Immigration to escape horrific conditions in their native countries is actually more aptly called refugees. In fact, if the history offered to us as children is correct, (and we have evidence it was not always correct) many who joined the New World were a variant of refugees for a better life. The nation has roots in immigration and yes, some were refugees. Yet, to think such seems far from the historic paradigm of the GOP.

As the standard barrier for the GOP and conservative America, Trump certainly foretold his handling of issues related to Immigration while declaring an intent to run in 2016. Trump's formal announcement after his now infamous escalator charade. 

After one year we are hearing this based on the Trump Administration policy of separating immigrant children from their parents. Let's make certain the scene is clear/ We have ICE agents who have been ordered to take children from parents and facilitate housing the children in barracks?  As you will see and hear in the following video segment (and it runs 11 plus minutes for good reason) some of the children (1500) are unaccounted for (excuse the ending preposition). 

Trump's Chief of Staff recently responded to a question from an NPR host regarding the policy of using family separation as a means to an end.
On the administration's recently announced "zero tolerance" policy that calls for separating families who cross the border illegally and prosecuting them 
"Let me step back and tell you that the vast majority of the people that move illegally into the United States are not bad people. They're not criminals. They're not MS-13. ... But they're also not people that would easily assimilate into the United States, into our modern society. They're overwhelmingly rural people. In the countries they come from, fourth-, fifth-, sixth-grade educations are kind of the norm. They don't speak English; obviously that's a big thing. ... They don't integrate well; they don't have skills. They're not bad people. They're coming here for a reason. And I sympathize with the reason. But the laws are the laws. ... The big point is they elected to come illegally into the United States, and this is a technique that no one hopes will be used extensively or for very long."
Could Trump have found a more facilitating authoritarian who consistently exhibits bigoted rhetoric as an indicator of his personal ideology? I suggest not as Chief of Staff. Kelly facilitates as effectively as another well-known adviser to international leaders who governed in autocratic states. A dangerous reality.

Kelly sought to clarify his statement, but remarks following his initial comments fall in the same overfilled basket of: "Oh I was inarticulate." A basket with a rare exception for a couple of cases of Dems misspeaking (e.g. Harry Reid on Obama's race as a potential candidate) is a basket as filled with GOP statements as your childhood Easter basket.

The Boston Globe ran a piece regarding Kelly's background and it reveals what we have come to expect from conservative America: Do as I say, not as I live.

Again the MSNBC segment which follows is not a short segment it runs a full 11 minutes and slightly longer. however, if you fail to educate and inform yourself, you are as guilty of facilitating-acquiescence to Trump's draconian policy as those who crafted the policy. Yes, a group of people associated with Trump sat in meetings to devise a policy which has led to a most shameful of policies.

A day later and after a barrage of concern expressed via social media and with the full expectation of what will come after the Hayes interview, Trump took to friendly media with typical carnival barking. "M13, M13, M13........."  Trump has supported Kelly's statement via doubling down on references to immigration as a path for M13.  

Speaking of the horrors of a Los Angles originated gang in no way works at rationalizing the policy of separating children from parents.  Especially when the policy and practices lead to 1500 children someplace on Earth with no hope of a future...and possibly in the hands of abusive people. 

"....or whatever."

Seventy-five Percent of White Evangelicals Support Trump (While ICE Takes Kids)

Donald Trump The American Evangelical Messiah
After reading a headline indicating 75% of white evangelicals support Trump, my mind raced to a video segment I viewed within the past two hours. 

The video relates to the Trump regime's separation of children from detained immigrants. In one case a mother was told her child was hundreds of miles away in the City of Chicago. She was in Texas t the time. Another snippet from the video relates to a child as young as 54 weeks taken from the mother.

MSNBC's Chris Hayes ALL - IN.
Trump likes to brag about setting records. I suspect the practice of state-sanctioned separation of kids is historic across the full scope of US History. 

People who call themselves evangelical Christians have apparently found themselves something of a Messiah. Yet, my very limited understanding of what some call Scriptures leads me to believe the practice via ICE wouldn't be acceptable to any God-like figure or any likeness of God.

State Sanctioned Bigotry and Racism Oozes To The Masses

"These aren't people, they are animals." 

Even if the statement was bundled in the context of illegal immigration and fissured towards "alleged illegal immigration ", The statement was as callous and dangerous as this:

Let's take a quick look and listen to one of Trump's henchmen who seems to share Trump's racist and bigoted views.

John Kelly Trump's Chief of Staff has also offered yet another example of Trumpism's affinity for racism and bigotry. While speaking on NPR Kelly went here:
JOHN KELLY: But they're also not people that would easily assimilate into the United States into our modern society. They're overwhelmingly rural people. In the countries they come from, fourth,- fifth-, sixth-grade educations are kind of the norm. They don't speak English, obviously. That's a big thing. They don't speak English. They don't integrate well. They don't have skills.
Kelly also recently fired off another statement which can only stand as utter bigotry with a toe-touch into the realm of national racism. The Washington Post reported in February: 
 (Kelly) suggested that some young immigrants eligible for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program failed to apply for the legal protections because they were too afraid — or “too lazy to get off their asses.”
"....lazy asses?" 

 " country."

Apparently, the racist attacked two women who sat for lunch while speaking Spanish. The women were from Puerto Rico (part of the US) while the racist berated them for being from Guatemala.
One of the dinners was the wife of Edward Suazo. Mr. Suazo posted comments on his Facebook page.

Edward Suazo on Tuesday ·  
So my wife and her best friend Just experience what America is becoming !
They where on there lunch time and ordering there food and just because they where speaking in Spanish to the waiter this asshole jumps in and started to call the waiter and my wife and her best friend all types of names and threatened to call I.C.E on them and the employees !!!! 
What a big man talking down to couple of women and a helpless employee. I wish someone tells me I can’t speak in my native language ! First of all they wasn’t talking to you !! Asshole ! 
My country !! Haha 😆  
I love the way people are just throwing that world around lately !! If you love this country this much ! Why don’t you put on uniform and protect it !! 
If he was so offended because the waiter was speak in Spanish only because of a native person spoke to him in Spanish, why don’t he start waitering and he won’t have that issue and family stop getting Spanish nannies and stop getting Spanish people to farm and .........You know where I’m getting !! 
So please stop !! Because in the end you need them ! But what you need to do is stop trying to control us ! Slavery stopped a long time ago !!

Today we find the New York lawyer masking himself like an exposed KKK member as he avoids the press and inquiring passersby.  Linked.

We are also reading reports his landlord no longer wants him as a building resident. 

As I watched the video from My 15, I thought: well, what would the lawyer do if he heard people speaking French, Italian Russian, or for that matter Swahili?" What actions would he take?  While watching CNN this morning, my question was answered; he also profiles people.

The New York City racist apparently has a history of such unprovoked and mindless attacks. In October 2016 a pedestrian was walking down Fifth Avenue when the racist lawyer felt he had profiled a foreigner.  Wille Morris takes over in the linked YouTube video.

Of course, the racist lawyers is but one of a growing number of white people who feel emboldened by the rhetoric, politics, and practices of Trump and his inner circle advisers.

Do you recall this?

The racist in the previous video and the deranged New York lawyer are obvious manifestations of Trumpism.  We have law enforcement going after people who are deemed, illegal immigrants. Why is it OK for the common racist to attack and harass people based solely on the use of language?  The dangers should be obvious.

I am also guilty of attributing the behavior shown in the post to deranged conservatives. Allow a moment for a quick lesson in oozing nationalism with touches into bigoted comments from the Left.

After Trump stood on at the entry of Air Force with his smiling wife and three former prisoners of Kim Jong Un's prison system, I noticed an ugly reality from a few liberals. During a morning Facebook post and related thread, one person asked if the released (Asian) men were citizens why do they not speak English? Apparently, the three men did not speak English. The commenter did not make a reference to the ethnicity of the three men; I added that parenthetic qualifier. 

The question should come: "When will one of the deranged citizenship citizen police kill or injure someone?"

If you do not see the danger in ICE under Trump, you aren't one who learned lessons from our past.

ICE has a degree of internal corruption and we can only assume that corruption is there to comply with Trump policies.
