If there is any wish that unifies us all, this might be it.

Just imagine.

The guy is almost as cool as Barack Obama, without having that extra pigment which seemed to drive the racists nuts.

Young, liberal, good looking, and smart.

And what do we get?


Life's not fair.

    I love Justin Trudeau. I just wish Obama had declared martial law and became president for life like the wingnuts swore he was going to do. My stupid, racist brother-in-law still thinks Obama was born in Kenya and is coming to take away everyone's guns.

    Gryphen, you're going to hear from Canadians who have no love for our Prime Minister. Unfortunately, we have our share of brain dead supporters of Trump as well. Not in the numbers you have in the U.S. but sizeable, nontheless.

    "...and what do we get?" Crazy. Paranoid. Serial liar. Embarrassing. Treasonous. Crook.

    Hope this isn't out of place, but really think this needs to get a LOT of attention:

    https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/7/27/1684420/-This-is-How-You-Turn-Nice-Folks-into-Nazis

    "At his campaign rally in Youngstown on July 25th, 2017, President Trump said a lot of scary things as he attempted to pump up his base. I’d like to focus on a very small portion of his speech, but one that I believe is incredibly important. Here’s the transcript. He is talking about immigrants:

    The predators and criminal aliens who poison our communities with drugs and prey on innocent young people. These beautiful, beautiful innocent young people. Will find no safe haven anywhere in our country. And you’ve seen the stories about some of these animals. They don’t want to use guns because it’s too fast and it’s not painful enough. So they’ll take a young, beautiful girl, 16, 15. And others. And they slice ‘em and dice ‘em with a knife. Because they want them to go through excruciating pain before they die. And these are the animals that we’ve been protecting for so long. Well, they’re not being protected any longer, folks.
    This is my response, initially presented in a series of tweets here, but cleaned up and revised for Daily Kos for my very first diary. Please let me know if I need to make any adjustments.

    Seriously losing my mind here. People love to ask "Why didn't the good Germans do anything to stop the rise of Hitler?" I'm wondering the same thing myself. Why is this such a hard conversation? The man is obviously a bad fucked up man who should not be in charge of the remote, let alone the country.

    This type of rhetoric is what the Nazis used to make it ok to round up the Jews, the homosexuals, members of opposition parties, Gypsies, Jehovah's Witnesses, and those deemed to be asocial or socially deviant.

    This is what white supremacists and the KKK did to make it ok to hunt, beat, torture, and lynch black people. This is the conversation that justifies slavery.

    This is the justification for the nobility's right to do whatever the fuck they deemed fit to peasants and commoners.

    This is how you turn "nice folks" into Nazis.

    Set aside discussion of any policies or political differences; can we at least agree that this is a wrong/bad/tragically irresponsible way for anyone, especially the President, to speak about other people?

    This is how we justified the Trail of Tears, which resulted in the deaths of 4000 Cherokee people.

    We call them animals. We talk about how much they laugh as they rape us and cut us and shoot us and steal from us. We brand them as sadists and savages, not as good or smart or deserving as you and me. We say our enemies are responsible for all our pains, failures, and disappointments. Then we call anyone who disagrees our enemy.

    This is how you turn “regular people” into Nazis.

    If only these people, these criminals, these animals, these savages, were not around, everything would be peachy. If only these enemies would stop trying to humiliate us and destroy our way of life, we'd all be happy.

    This is how you justify genocide.

    This is scary crazy shit that will incite people to violence.

    This is not right. We should not accept it, if only because he knows no loyalty to supporters. Right Reince and Jeff? If your heart or your conscience doesn't scream at what he's doing, does your self-interest?

    This is how you make people not people. And it is wrong.

    .........snip.......

    I mean, what the fuck? How is this normal or acceptable or decent or anything but fascism?

    This is how decency and democracy die."

      Great post. There's so much wrong with Trump"s hateful rhetoric, aside from the automatic association of immigrants to animals.

      tiny djt >“I would watch supermodels getting screwed, well-known supermodels getting screwed, on a bench in the middle of the [Studio 54] room,” Trump recalled breathlessly. “There were seven of them and each one was getting screwed by a different guy.”

    6. Yes, that is exactly how the Holocaust started.

      And those that are too stupid to learn from history are repeating it and denying the connection when pointed out from those that have learned.

    Trump is probably just projecting what he and others did at Epstein's parties with underage models from eastern Europe. Trump is a criminal guilty of money laundering, racketeering and human trafficking. Schneiderman is going to get him. I'm sure the Mooch was at plenty of the Epstein parties, too; why else would anyone work for Trump?

  8. Good lord, even here. I did not vote for this lying, narcissistic, privileged little corporatist shit weasel, and I will dedicate as much time and money as I possibly can to his defeat. Why? While it is not my job to argue with his hypnotized cultists, I wish you would at least ask yourselves why it is bad, awful and terrible when Trump makes fake arms deals with the warmongering Saudis, but it is great, super and sexxy when Trudeau The Lesser sells real heavy weapons (against Canadian and international laws and agreements, btw) to help them slaughter Yemenis.

  10. We need Al Franken to run. I know he doesn't want to. I know Fran doesn't want him to or to live in the White House. But we need to make sure a Democrat is in the White House in 2020. We need a sure thing. I think Franken is a sure thing. I think Franken could undo a lot of the damage Trump is inflicting on us.

    We need to draft Al Franken.
