Lots of irony to be had…

So… Earlier today the top two stories on Apple’s news feed went a little something like this… Story number one, from the NBC News feed: Trump’s State of the Union theme: ‘A safe, strong and proud America’ Right next to it on the page was this from BuzzFeed News: Thousands of people were supposed to regain power in Puerto Rico on Saturday. They didn’t I’ll just let that one sink in a bit while we look at a picture from the recent past…

No words…

I have no words for the last… Well, as near to two years as makes no difference… We’ve just come through a cycle of nonsense, of accusations and lies, of vitriol and hatred spewed across our land, at any and everyone whom we deemed as different…  as ‘not us’… And because ‘they’ are different from ‘us’, we don’t understand them. And we fear what we don’t understand… And we kill what we fear…

Oh, thank God…

  I was afraid I was the only one drawing what appears to me to be the overwhelmingly obvious historical parallels between some rather scary people… But then, maybe that’s what the supporters of this guy want… A new world order, in which they are the ascendant race. The pure race. If I may paraphrase a quote, the way to ensure that bad Republicans take over the party machinery is for good Republicans to do nothing. I don’t know about you, but I am very afraid.     Image found here.
