Anti-Trump “women’s march” (pink hats). They were told—and believed—they were making history, but they were simply part of the controlled opposition, fools used for political theater, legitimating the idea of meaningful political freedom.
As the global crisis precipitated by the irredeemably criminal system deepens and accelerates, more and more people are becoming radicalised, finding their voices and stepping forth to serve as citizen journalists—invaluable witnesses to reality— in the places vacated by the multitude of careerist presstitutes defending the status quo. In this trench, few are outspoken, fearless, often controversial, and yet spot on in matters that really count as Debbie Lusignan, host of Sane Progressive channel. Here’s a sampler, by way of introduction. Do not expect Debbie to be “right” in everything she says, because we have come to believe no one really ever is in this highly confusing and toxic moment for humanity. “Confusionism” assaults the American mind from every angle, 24/7: part induced ignorance, part acquired disbelief in the crumbling institutional order, and part temperamental acceptance of ideas and “facts” or popular rumors which, after careful examination, may or may not fail to hold up as expected. This produces in many people a kind of mental fog, a daze, as if you were trying to step away from a car crash, or a violent incident, still not quite understanding fully what happened. This is now commonplace in America and much of the West, and it is certainly not accidental. It goes with the cultural stage we are in, a mindscape permeated —as we just said—with manipulation. But this does not mean we have to become passive players in our lives, and throw our hands up in the air and accept a terminal relativism according to which no one and nothing can or should be blamed for the terminal mess we inhabit. Confusing as reality may frequently seem, can be penetrated, and acted on. This is what we try to do here at TGP, and this is what people like Debbie try to do with their activism. They constantly think and probe reality to tease out the truth. And then they try to share it.
Examine these materials, and be sure to follow her work, as we certainly will. Debbie is a mental fog dispeller. Desperately needed.
Parting shot—a word from the editors 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
