AMERICA FIRST? Trump Says that America is 'Evil' and its 'Next Stop, Communism'
As the midterm election closes to within ten days, the rancid rhetoric on the right is becoming ever more reckless and slathered in the sort of incendiary bombast that magnifies the risk of violence multifold. Even with the horrific attempted murder of Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Republicans remain devoted to their strategy of provocation and demonization of their political foes.
Two days after the hammer attacker, who was looking for Speaker Pelosi, committed his domestic terrorism, Donald Trump has still said nothing about about it. No words of sympathy or well wishes or even the cliché “thoughts and prayers.” Trump must not have had time for that while he was busy posting 59 comments on his floundering social media scam, Truth Social, in the past 48 hours. Most of those posts were pitiful glorifications of himself and tiresome attacks his enemies. And he couldn’t resist taking a swipe at his new competitor, Elon Musk…
Among Trump’s posts is one that repeated his long festering obsession with what he calls a “Witch Hunt.” To Trump that musty bromide can be referring to any of a dozen or more probes into his criminal misconduct. This post, however, doesn’t bother with messy trivialities like specifics or facts…
“The Witch Hunt continues, and after 6 years and millions of pages of documents, they’ve got nothing. If I had what Hunter and Joe had, it would be the Electric Chair. Our Country is Rigged, Crooked, and Evil – We must bring it back, and FAST. Next stop, Communism!”
Trump is demonstrating his remarkable capacity for self-deception. The truth is that there is an abundance of evidence against him in both his criminal and civil cases. And it is that incriminating record that is actually triggering frantic posts like this one. He knows he’s guilty. Which is why he is so afraid and is evading subpoenas and testimony. It’s also why is lashing out at the judge in a case that is commencing on Monday…
Trump’s post also reveals his fear by trying to divert attention to Hunter and Joe Biden. Whether or not there is any illegality on their part (for which there is no evidence), it wouldn’t change anything about his own legal peril. But it is surprising that he is escalating the potential penalties for his crimes to capital punishment.
Worst of all, Trump is continuing to express his devout hatred for America as “evil” and headed toward “communism.”. These are themes that he rehashes frequently, while pretending to be patriotic. Trump uses this narrative to foment fear among his cult followers. He requires them to be in a state of unmitigated terror 24/7. Such as when he recently ranted during a speech at his cult rally in Nevada that…
“You can’t walk down a street in a Democrat-run city without being shot or mugged or knifed [and that under] the radical left Democrats, the streets of our once great cities are drenched in the blood of innocent victims.”
Contrary to Trump’s panic mongering, while there has been a recent uptick in crime, particularly violent crime, overall it is actually way down from levels just a few years ago. And if Trump wants to make a case for effective crime mitigation according to political party, he’s going to be disappointed to learn that the states with the highest crime rates are run by Republicans. According to a recent study, “Eight of the top ten worst murder rate states voted for Trump in 2020.”
The media isn’t helping to set the record straight with regard to crime in America. And Fox News is purposefully distorting the record. Since crime, along with the economy, tops the list of issues that are most important to voters, it is imperative that Democrats get the message out that they are the party that better serves the interests of the people on both counts. And they only have ten days left to do it.
