As Trump's World Turns: Rally Chant (Abhorrent and Shameful)




Donald Trump choke
That Presidential Look?
The chief purveyor of Trump's racism and white nationalism, Steve Miller visited the Trump media outlet, Fox News, and spent 10:00 minutes spewing and responding to questions about nascent Trumpism. When Chris Wallace asked Miller about Trump's past criticism of the US government, the Trump operative went here:

"......upholding the “principles of Western civilization.”

Allow a quick back reach regarding the common white nationalism vernacular for Right-wing politicals. 

"Western civilization"

A definition:

Western culture, sometimes equated with Western civilizationWestern lifestyle or European civilization, is a term used very broadly to refer to a heritage of social norms, ethical values, traditional customs, belief systems, political systems, and specific artifacts and technologies that have some origin or ... 
Western culture - ScienceDaily
Well, that definition is a bIt white, to state it mildly. It is, the exact, sentiment and message communication operatives like Miller would deploy to advance GOP racism and right-wing white supremacy.

The 2016 night of the Republican National Convention; noted International racists Iowa's Steve King.




A startling yet unsurprising comment for the kin (excuse the pun) of white nationalism among many in conservative America. While seeking a definition of white nationalism, the phrase "white supremacist" also sat clearly on my monitor. As I followed the definition of white supremacy, guess what popped-up. The link: Merriam-Webster.



And the matter of white nationalism and Trump's attack on four non-white rookie members of the US House of representatives who happened to be women, Miller was unable to shake the ugliness his boss has put upon the world. 


While in a very diverse district in North Carolina, Trump's virtually all-white audience erupted into Trump's new slogan of "Send her back" ( a derivative of ...go back to where they came from).   


As you view what follows, know one of Trump's lies this week was his lack of fondness for this chant. He also, in another forum, called the chanters patriots. 





Another perspective on rally chants which represents the reality of Trump's choreographed ooziest chants.




No matter the spin from Miller, Trump's racist politicizing is abhorrent and shameful. 


Post-Script (considering I used the word shameful above).

As Trump's World Turns: A Right-Wing King Performed




Image may contain: 1 person

Please excuse the following quick digression.

          Image may contain: 1 person, text

As you view the following image, do you experience thoughts of a degree of planning of a pending event? Carefully consider your thought response as to indicate you don't see planning could be an indication of either something missing in your gray matter or a simple state of conservative obtuse.

No photo description available.

What follows offers the perfect opportunity across the full breadth of Trumpism to view how many across the globe must have begrudgingly viewed many failed dictators and despots. While it is sad the 46.9 percent of eligible voters in 2016 didn't cast a vote for President of the United States, it is utterly tragic the caricature of our US despot.

If you want the back story on the three images posted above (specifically the third image), read on. 

Under the guise of an infrastructure meeting, Trump and his cabal drew members of Congress and the opposition party Democrats to the White House for an obviously staged carnival spectacle, of course, you shouldn't be surprised as you may have helped elect the nation's first carnival president.  While delivering many more than 10,000 verifiable lies since taking office, Trump and his communications network, Fox News, delivers frequent examples of staged reality show-like events.  
A wrtier for Occupy Democarts summed up the Trump drama as such. he following ha sbeen reproted here for the "We're IN! 100% ALL IN!" Facebook page.
"So in review, Trump, Pelosi and Schumer agreed to meet today to discuss INFRASTRUCTURE. But Trump said he heard from someone that “Nancy” just minutes before the meeting, said Trump was involved in a cover-up..Trump then said sorry, no dice. I can’t discuss infrastructure with anybody who would say such a mean, nasty lie about me, so he *spontaneously* walked out to the Rose Garden to address the public, where someone had *spontaneously* attached this placard to the podium, which miraculously, and also no doubt *spontaneously* mirrored Trumps very inaccurate term “18 Angry Democrats.”
.This man is certifiably batshit, my friends. I’m beginning to think impeachment is too good for him. They choreographed this WHOLE goddamn thing, long before he heard what Speaker Pelosi said, and probably even before the infrastructure meeting was agreed to."
~ Bruce Lindner

Speaking of guises, this post wouldn't be complete with visiting another of conservative America's daily lies and misrepresentations regarding their messiah. Apparently, someone on a mission took an aerial view of the 1969 Woodstock Music Festival in upstate New York and passed it off as an image of a recent Trump rally crowd. 

Well, Snopes responded to the image and its false representation as such: linked

We've lived through the crowd thing before.  Within days of Trump's inauguration, Sean Spicer was dispatched to the White House Briefing room to perform as such.



From Snopes and Trump crowd issues to an admitted White House liar. 


Huckabee Sanders "...Pelosi has lost control of her party". 
Sanders Part Deux.  It is, important to consider this before moving forward.


From late April to Sanders today on the White House Lawn. After yesterday's Trump tantrum, the White House dispatched its Number two presstitute to answer questions from yelling White House reporters.  Sanders addressed what seemed an obviously planned meeting walkout via Trump

Oh....... and that makes it the truth. Lest we remind of over 10,000 validates lies I threw years in office. Lear we forget this mouthpiece has admitted to the Special Counsel is position requirements.

Lest we forget Trump has pulled a walkout before after offering candy to start a meeting. And, never forget the expensive and seemingly planned Pence walkout from an Indianapolis professional football game National Anthem protest. Someone in the Trump cabal believes walkouts are the thing to do to entertain Trump's base.

As Trump's World Turns: Jokes? Shooting Immigrants? White Power Sign?





 Image result for jokes

Joking? Watch a recent broadcast segment from MSNBC" Jokes?" No, the segment isn't laced with funny items from the Trump carnival show. Give the video a watch ......and think of how leadership impacts people.

MSNBC's The Last Word w/Lawrence O'Donnell



It was a joke.

Let's take "joke" to another level and another arena.

First this... 

Image result for White power sign  If you are one who refuses to accept the undercurrents of US racism and white supremacy, recognize the ideology has its own hand gesture.

Image result for White power sign  After comments from media about the flash, her husband spoke of the ethnicity of this woman (Mexican and Jewish). Really? Well, Clarence Thomas is a black American and Trump adviser Steve Miller is Jewish. Enough said.

Image result for White power sign So-called "alt-righters" (AKA white supremacists) flashing from the White House Press room.

New Zealand Shooter (terrorist) flashes a white power sign.

And this week there is this flash during a broadcast of a Chicago Cubs Baseball game.

Image result for White power sign

Well, a Cubs fan allowed his inner core beliefs and vision of what supremacy overshadow his common sense and judgment. After being reported to have been banned form Cubs games, he spoke. CBS Link, here.   

Inner core judgment? Joke? Think about the Lawrence O'Donnell segment at the top of this piece.  People laughed, smiled and relished the moment at public lynchings of black people during the decades of Jim Crow. 


Let's end with a reminder from Business Insider: Since Trump, hate crimes have increased by 226 percent.

As Trump's World Turns: "Wind doesn't blow", "Pencil-neck", "Michelle OBama"




...Yup, another Trump rally


First a look and listen to the hordes who line-up for Trump's Grand Rapids rally.

Now let's visit inside the cesspool.

Image result for trump rally

A Trump Grand Rapids Michigan carnival show rally included personal insults, forays into a Chicago criminal case, profanity and general stands as yet another free-to-attend oozest. Would you consider viewing a few samples from the podium?

We're 2 minutes in and Trump has already goaded his fans into booing the media twice pic.twitter.com/E5LRg0TJ24— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) March 28, 2019
Trump's audience sits with a presidential demagogue railing about our world (nothing related to policy other than slamming immigrants) while calling Democrats in Congress "sick people". Sick people? Have you ever heard of strategy related to deflection accompanied by a person with a lack of personal perception? Trump's crowd seems imbued as such. 

In another moment we find the short-sightedness of Trump and his sycophant supporters. MSNBC ratings drop? Really? How is that different from celebrating a gas price drop when prices will inevitably go up. Or, celebrating pool numbers when the same pollers could withing weeks report lowered polling numbers.
Pencil-neck?
Did the crowd partake-in  "Lock-her-up" with the reality of legal action against Trump's cabal? It seems his crowds are either reacting to crowd ques from Trump's handler's or they use "lock-her-up" as if at a football game doing the "wave". I suspect the latter as the aforementioned would surely draw attention from the media.
Remember this?



Now take a look and read about the reality of Trump current rally Lock-her-up chants as nothing more than an audience wave.

Well, actually sometimes the wave fails to develop ad it looks like this.

 

But at Trump rallies with people who very well may attend rallies to exercise their opportunity to chant "lock-her-up". The moments of chanting is comparable to this.



If you have a few minutes the psychology of the wave is an interesting study in human behavior.  A behavior with roots back to 1981 and captured via this quote from former sportscaster Joe Garagiola.

Exploratorium.edu (link)
“Crescendo rising here. It’s amazing, I’ve never seen anything like this…”
-Sportscaster Joe Garagiola describing the first documented appearance of a "stadium wave" at the Oakland Alameda Coliseum on October 15, 1981.
Grab that Red MAGA cap and partake in a ritual chant. 

Alas, Trump moved to Michelle Obama. We will forego the rightful tendency to post pictures of Trump's arm-candy model prior to their marriage. It would be equally appropriate to post his wife's visit to the View at which she joined in racist birtherism. But, we will pass and simply post the Aaron Ruper tweet.

I will bring the post to an end at this point. You can visit Aaron Rupar's Twitter page via this link

Question. While I recognize Trump's rallies are campaign visits to communities in which he has great support,  I must ask: Is there anything about the Twitter post above you find even remotely respectful, decent or "presidential?" 

Before I close, consider this as you think about our nation.

"Sucks?"
