They mostly all left by 1964. None of this crap sophistry and lying should surprise anyone with at least 6th Grade reading skills.
“We have become a Nazi monster in the eyes of the whole world, a nation of bullies and bastards who would rather kill than live peacefully. We are not just Whores for power and oil, but killer whores with hate and fear in our hearts. We are human scum, and that is how history will judge us. No redeeming social value. Just whores. Get out of our way, or we’ll kill you.
Who does vote for these dishonest shitheads? Who among us can be happy and proud of having all this innocent blood on our hands? Who are these swine?”
Hunter S. Thompson in 2004, “Kingdom of Fear: Loathsome Secrets of a Star-crossed Child in the Final Days of the American Century”
At the narrowest analysis, these voters are ignorant – or bigoted – or both. I’m not certain what is to be accomplished by wider examination.
The mass of American eligible voters is better than this. And the fight is to protect their rights and access to voting. We already know who is trying to prevent universal suffrage.
Actually, over the years I’ve known a few conservatives with big hearts and a small “c”. Some were even Republicans in a different day, a different country. They certainly wouldn’t be Republicans, today.
❝ A Navajo Nation Council delegate ripped President Trump after the president called Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) “Pocahontas” during an event honoring Navajo Code Talkers.
In a statement, Navajo Nation Council Delegate Amber Kanazbah Crotty said Trump’s “careless” comment is the “latest example of systemic, deep-seated ignorance of Native Americans and our intrinsic right to exist and practice our ways of life.”
“The intentional disregard of the historical trauma of Pocahontas as a sexual assault survivor directly resulting from colonization is disturbing,” she added.
Trump not only offends the civilized world as an example of a Fake President, he does a damned good job of showing folks how an insensitive bigot behaves when let out into public events.
❝ President Donald Trump brought up a campaign promise during a March meeting with the U.S. senators from Alaska, asking whether he could roll back President Barack Obama’s 2015 decision to rename the tallest mountain on the continent…
Senators Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan were meeting with Trump and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke in the Oval Office to talk about issues affecting Alaska…The president then raised another of Obama’s Alaska decisions. “Wasn’t the name of a big mountain in Alaska changed by executive order?” Trump asked, according to The Alaska Dispatch News – Obama announced in 2015 the federal government was changing the name of Mount McKinley to Denali, the Native Alaska name for the peak…
❝ The president brought up the idea of changing the name back to Mount McKinley, named for a U.S. president who never visited the 49th state, and the senators quickly argued against it. “Lisa—Senator Murkowski—and I jumped over the desk. We said, ‘No, no!'” said Sullivan, who was speaking at the Alaska Federation of Natives convention in Anchorage, the newspaper reported.
When the president asked, “Why?” Sullivan answered, “The Alaska Native people named that mountain over 10,000 years ago.… Denali, that was the name,” according to the newspaper…
❝ Trump, then just two months into his presidential campaign, reacted strongly. “President Obama wants to change the name of Mount McKinley to Denali after more than 100 years. Great insult to Ohio. I will change back!” he said in a tweet, referring to President William McKinley’s home state.
❝ Alaskans slammed Trump’s tweets. “We wanted that change for a long time, and now we finally have it, and we need to leave it alone,” Victor Joseph, president of Tanana Chiefs Conference, a consortium of 42 Athabascan tribes in Interior Alaska, told the Associated Press last year. “It was an insult to the first people of this land when they took away the name and gave it to somebody else.”
Trump’s racist politics betrays him once again. Aside from being criminally incompetent to manage the affairs of this nation, his affection for bigots and racist politics smears this whole nation with the stupidity that lead a minority of voters to go for Trump in the 2016 election.
