One of Those Again … sorry

Last week I read two pieces in “the news”. And what makes me write about this, is the feeling of doom they caused. It is only comparable to the moment when I realised that the little fuehrer will be the next president of the US, sometime back in September 2016.
I did not follow the hearings about January the 6th of last year closely. Simply because I had followed what happened, and the terrible aftermath. These hearings are necessary : No one can say now that he, she, or it, did not have a chance to get informed. In itself these hearings are a good sign of a living, and perhaps even healthy, democracy.
What they proved beyond any reasonably doubt is that what happened on this date was no accident. It was not simply a speech that got out of hand, a mass of people who got out of control. What we see is a planned attack on the core of democracy, that is the peaceful and legal shift of power from the outgoing administration that lost, to the incoming administration that won the legal election. The little fuehrer knew what he was doing. All was prepared, the fraudulent replacement “electors”, the henchmen for the violent part, a kind of nerve centre was established in that hotel.
You know how it played out. The little fuehrer was so close to become the big fuehrer, but the putsch that would establish him as authoritarian one man supremo of the US did not work out. And all this should and would have been known & proven back then : If the USA would not be a banana republic the little crap would already be doing time in prison for high treason. The “conservatives” Republicans caved in, and nowadays the traitor holds court in his Floridian whorehouse, and brags openly about his return.
What brings me to the first article I read (here) about a Republican apparatchik who testified in the hearings. And then says, obviously in full command of his mind, that he would support the little fuehrer if he would return. And what hit me violently is that he is not alone : This seems to be the mindset of the average Republican mandarin – they will support this “man” again !
That is what I call a “Good German”. That is what one could hear after the 8th of May 1945, like a litany : I just followed orders. I am not responsible, I am simply a small wheel in a big machine, of course I am innocent. To say in the same breath that the constitution is something “saint” is blasphemous on more than one level.
The other article I read (cnn, npr) is about the “platform” the Texan Republicans, well, formed. Says that BIDEN is not the legitimate president, guns are good for you, and more – read it for yourself, please.
As I understand this is vox populi (hence vox Dei ), that is what the ordinary Tex(i)an Republican thinks, wants ; and I believe it is representative for what those ordinary Republicans in other parts of the US South think, and want. They want to follow the little fuehrer, come rain or sunshine – what means that they embrace the lies, the racism, and the violence. And of course, they want to get rid of democracy, at least in the broad sense. “Democracy” is for Whites only. Niggers, pacos and slitty eyes may meet Mr Gerry Mander, they are all just “staff” after all, and may rot in the ghetto. Women shut up and bear children. Dykes and sissy boys better change their attitude, or else. And this is always and everywhere, the “or else” – the threat of violence. Guns for all and everybody, and guns are nothing else but violence in metal form. In the end a problem can always be solved with the help of a military grade automatic.
The terrible thing is that I have absolutely no feeling of exaggerating, of hyperbole – I think I convey the thinking behind this “platform” correctly – it is what they want. And the apparatchiks say that they’ll support the traitor when he will come back.
I think that this society as a whole, can not survive this. What manifests itself here is older than “maga” ; the little shit and his minions are catalysers, they showed up at the right place at the right moment in history. But this development is ongoing, unstoppable, and irreversible. The point of no return is behind us. I am sure that this society will violently implode in the near future.
It will be another great day when president deSantis and vice-president Greene will appear at the G-something or the UN to deliver groundbreaking, great (!), speeches. This will be not only Rock’n Roll, this will be punk. And this is what they are, all of them, punks.

  1. Thank you, Mago. I’m saddened, horrified and angry at America today. And not a little frightened that it is our ally!
    And the Court’s overturning of the RoevWade decision just makes things so much worse.

  2. I too hope that I’m wrong, Savannah.

    The fuehrer can come back – this perspective hinders to speak of a “reliable partnership” Dinahmow – at least from an European perspective.
    One may wonder what this court will come up next ?

    No duvet diving, dear MsScarlet ! Minimise the news intake, and roam the Devon fields. And maybe you can throw in some blogging ?

  3. Both Conservatives and Liberals now casually talk about the “impeding” civil war like it’s a normal topic of conversation

    It really is that bad.

    I don’t think anyone can stop this tsunami of hate.

    The semblance of a functioning democratic society is a fragile mask.

    They think they want this war. Idiots! All of them! For so long war has been “over there” and “as seen on tv.” How brave will they really be when it runs down their street and crashes through their front door? Overweight, out-of-shape weekend warriors, that’s why they need all those guns. The limp dick pudgy bastards are a joke without them. We will all suffer because of it, THAT is the tragedy. I have a Christian friend feverishly praying for The Rapture. Pish, good luck with that!

  4. We up here in Canada feel as though we live above a meth lab, awaiting the inevitable implosion. It is terrifying and infuriating. And there is dick all we can do about it, except make damn sure not too much of that mentality bleeds across the border (which it is trying to do, I can tell you that). Christ on a cracker!!!

  5. Yes, it reminds me of the situation before WWI. The historian G.MANN says that “of course” they (the German leadership in military, the Kaiser, et al.) could have hindered Austria etcetc. – but all those responsible people in the whole of Europe, all parties involved, expected the war to come. In a way this war was summoned (“herbeireden”), a product of their common mindset.
    I fear something similar happens now in the US – the trenches are dug, they seem to become wider, and the good old “Us versus Them – Who is not with us, is against us” seems to be commonplace.
    What I do not see are the communist hordes. Biden is old and crumbling, there is no new Obama, or a young Kennedy in sight.
    I am sorry Melanie – what is “the rapture” ? Is this a kind of “Armageddon”, end-fight etc.? I am not familiar with the word, and have no real understanding of its meaning in a religious sense. My dictionary translates it as “Verzückung”, so it may be the arrival of Jesus Christ, final judgement ?
    And how does this “rapture” connect to the fat weekend soldiers ?

    Oh wait, when climate change drives all those real ‘Murigans from their unlivable desert places Ponita.
    See here how “red” and “blue” nation compare right now.
    See here how climate change will very likely cause inner-US migration.
    Play with some maps here.
    All this is not far far away – Melanie’s children will live through this …
    I always said that Canada needs a border wall !

  6. I love your analogy, even though I’m in the meth lab, hahaha. We are seriously considering moving to BC (We’re in WA State.) We love it there and while we don’t have any Canadian blood we would qualify for Express visas due to our skillsets and work for a major tech company that has an office in Vancouver.

  7. Mago Yes, the Rapture is the second coming of Christ when all Christians will be taken to heaven and everyone else will be left to descend into hell upon earth. It just makes me so angry that their idea of dealing with all of this is to wish for a death not of their own hands (which would be a sin.) You know that people who want to die for their causes because they think it will make them righteous are the most dangerous people of all. Don’t expect them to talk about gluttony as one of the seven deadly sins, it a “lesser sin” as far as they are concerned even thought the bible says it is equal to murder. (All a bit extreme, the angry God of the Old Testament was not one for accepting gray areas.)

  8. Gluttony (“gula”) is one of the seven deadly sins. It is not only about over-eating, it is the un-measuredness (if this word exists), the “evermore”.
    Your Christian friend seems to take all these things very literally …

    (btw, you got mail.)

  9. I concur. I believe the insurrection is on-going and embraced by many. If Cheeto Face runs—and wins, well…I’ve already started Googling “fishing villages in Italy.”

  10. Hello and welcome Burt Weston, thank you for your first comment here.
    In some places in Italy (and in Spain too), one can buy a house for one € under the condition that you repair it and live there for some months through the year. A maybe tempting, but surely very demanding adventure !
