I am very sorry, dear Reader, but I feel the need to write about something that “drives me around”. I do not know how my brain works – in the end my best guess is that it is a kind of sponge that takes in anything it reads or heares, then miraculously puts things together and finally oozes out something like a thought, in the form of a bubble that emerges from the sponge-swamp … what an awry image. BTW it mostly works in images.
Anyway, I can not forget (one bubble came up) the video I saw some years ago that showed a “republican” of some rank (I forgot who the prick is, and I have no interest in retrieving the video. In the end anybody has the right to make an arse out of himself, and imho this guy did extensively at this occasion.), a “republican” I say, who makes “fun” of Kamala HARRIS’ name – ending with something like ” … mela, mala, whatever …”. What I clearly remember is the arrogance and the contempt of the speaker.
The “republican” party of the USA is now finally & officially a party based on lies, or better : The Big Lie. I have absolutely no sympathy for Ms CHENEY, who will be removed of some duties and ranks in the “republican” party soon. She is a creature of this “party”, she helped to form this “party”, she profited from this party work, she holds views that make my toes curl, to say the least. Her only “mistake” is that she told her party “friends” that the election is over and the Democrats won, in the end that Mr BIDEN is the lawfully elected President. To tell this truth is enough to be demoted. Other “republicans”, who had the guts to fight against the elephant in the room, can kiss their political career good-bye. ROMNEY, as I read somewhere, was booed from stage at some party gathering.
Let’s make it clear : If you want to hold an office in the “republican” party of the USA you have to lie. You have to kiss the ex-president’s (star fish shaped) ring, and kowtow to the criminal program that is connected with this initial lie – this program in the end aims at getting rid of the USAmerican democracy. All state-level actions, election laws, the “republican” party hammers through, aim at one thing : Make voting / taking part in the election as impossible as achievable. Especially for non-whites.
TRUMPs minions range from the party’s head honchos to those beared, white idiots in military gear, who carry automated weapons, organise themselves in militias, and generally “stand by” – Ready for violent “action”. The actions of the 6th of January show clearly where the train travels to. TRUMP now finally is what he ever wanted to be – what he always blared out : He is the leader of the movement, der Fuehrer der Bewegung. And if you do not hail the fuehrer, you are out.
Now let us assume that on one faithful day in the not so distant future Mr BIDEN makes a wrong step, and bonks his head on the side of a desk. Or suffers from a heart attack, or a stroke – whatever happens in a nearly eighty-year-old body of a man who takes a high pressure job serious. For this case you have a vice-president, you may say : ” … whatever Harris”, as the guy grinned.
I think that some people around the globe may see this as a “golden chance”. I am sure that in the moment it is confirmed that BIDEN is replaced by HARRIS, our friend Vlad (the impaler) pushes a button and sends out his troll army to create instability by propaganda, white, grey and black one. Do not forget that it is now established (!) that Russia was heavily involved in TRUMPs 2016 campagne. Maybe the Chinese have something similar in petto, I do not know.
I am pretty sure that the average “republican’s'” reaction (from “lawmaker” to militia gallowglass) will not be “All hail President HARRIS” but more something along the line “NO niggermother tells me nothing !” I am very sure that the military and the agencies will generally be loyal to the State, but what will happen on local “states'” level I do not know. And of course there will be violence – it’s Amurga after all ! If one black “neighbourhood defence committee” confronts some white “boyscouts” there will be some dead bodies left on the scene, more sooner than later : Yippieahyeah, here we go. (See how some “republicans” style this juvenile murderer from Kenosha as “hero”, look at those people’s mindset.)
I really think that the potential for some far reaching, violent confrontation is there – something we call vulgo “unrest”, or “Bürgerkrieg”. The faultlines are established since the 19th century, maybe even longer, and there is nothing left to plaster over them, TRUMP ripped the patch off. The new administration works itself through the debris of those lost four years, surely a promise for the future, but all is terribly fragile. And it takes time – Jessas, it’s not yet six months !
The “good will” is all gone since – when ? Maybe this started under Ronnie, but I am not sure. The “tribalism”, as some call it, will stay, will possibly even become entrenched & un-removable. I really believe that, if BIDEN is replaced by HARRIS, the stress on this already stressed out system (state and society) will become too strong, things will start to break apart, the centrifugal forces will be too strong to be contained. I have no clue what that will mean for the interior situation of the formerly “united” “states”. In foreign politics it could mean that China simply annexes Taiwan (and possibly gets rid of Mr KIM) ; that we Europeans have to welcome Russian tank crews on our Eastern borders, if they are so nice to stop there ; & whatever may happen in the Near East, GOd alone may know. The way Amurga treated “allies” over the last few years taught everybody a good lesson.
It’s all fun and game as long as you Zupfer kill only yerself, yer all free to do that – but, sadly, if things go really bonk, the rest of the world has to suffer too. So let’s hope that Mr BIDEN carries on well through his term, in his full capability, until the next election sees President HARRIS take over. There is no serious alternative.
Finally Lark’s Tongues in Aspic. (Yes, we have had this already in January this year, but I like it.) I hope you enjoy it, it grows on you.
