The Best Definition of Donald Trump We Have Found
In his zeal to prove to his antagonists in the War Party that he is as bloodthirsty as their champion, Hillary Clinton, and more manly than Barack Obama, Trump seems to have gone “play-crazy” -- acting like an unpredictable maniac in order to terrorize the Russians into forcing some kind of dramatic concessions from their Syrian allies, or risk Armageddon.However, the “play-crazy” gambit can only work when the leader is, in real life, a disciplined and intelligent actor, who knows precisely what actual boundaries must not be crossed. That ain’t Donald Trump -- a pitifully shallow and ill-disciplined man, emotionally handicapped by obscene privilege and cognitively crippled by white American chauvinism. By pushing Trump into a corner and demanding that he display his most bellicose self, or be ceaselessly mocked as a “puppet” and minion of Russia, a lesser power, the War Party and its media and clandestine services have created a perfect storm of mayhem that may consume us all.— Glen Ford, Editor in Chief, Black Agenda Report
A brief note on the intro: Sen. Sanders actually did his part to help Democrats corrupt the “inequality” discussion. Our more fortunate might not have noticed that Sanders restricted his “inequality” discussion to the gap between the better off and the rich. Formerly a supporter of democratic socialism and strong advocate for the poor/legit poverty relief programs, he simply “disappeared” (from his campaign speeches) those who are far worse off than minimum wage workers.
I have always preferred the Bernie as ” Judas goat ” metaphor to the sheep dog. Sheep dogs guard and protect the flock from predators, whereas a Judas goat cleverly mixes into the flock or whatever species is being readied for slaughter, gains their trust, and then is followed down the path to “processing.” So Judas goat seems even more apropos that sheep dog.
With regard to freedom, it’s actually more like one step forward, two steps back. And then to be safe, to steps farther back.
