Trump Mocks Disabled Reporter; John Kasich Does The Right Thing By Trump



Trump Mocks!
...AND THEN THEY CAME FOR ME......

If you read hear from time to time, you know we often use the famous Martin Niemoller prose and verse, "FIRST THEY CAME FOR THE SOCIALISTS..." as an analogy for what we are increasingly seeing from conservative America.

If by chance you are unfamiliar of the prose read the following and think deeply about the insidious nature of oozing fascism that can easily lead to more dire and dangerous social movement (i.e. Nazism).

MARTIN NIEMÖLLER: "FIRST THEY CAME FOR THE SOCIALISTS..."

Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) was a prominent Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps.
Martin Niemöller, a prominent Protestant pastor who opposed the Nazi regime. He spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps. Germany, 1937.

Niemöller is perhaps best remembered for the quotation:
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Socialist. 
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Trade Unionist. 
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Jew. 
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
Finally, a candidate for the GOP 2016 nomination has conjured up sufficient grit  to go after Donal Trump, the modern day GOP fascists, via a political ad that leaves the a warning as clearly as Niemoller's prose. In fact, the ad was developed with Niemoller's prose as the message building block.



Sadly, Trump is favored by GOP supporters, and that speaks poorly of American conservatism.

Fox News Chooses GOP Candidates







Fox News chooses next presidential prospects.

And the winners are:  Donald Trump, Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, Mike Huckabee, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Chris Christie, and John Kasich will appear in the prime-time showdown.


And the B-Team bottom dwellers are:

Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, Bobby Jindal, Carly Fiorina, Lindsey Graham, George Pataki, and Jim Gilmore.


The top ten is a smorgasbord of US conservatism and a college of candidate racism, homophobic, a libertarian chameleon, a whacked-out former brain surgeon, a failed governor who is he can kills ISIS like a teachers union, a noted exponent of phasing-out Medicare, a New Jersey bully, a young lost soul from Florida and Kasich (criticism not yet fully developed).

The bottom seven, no comment.
