This is going to make ‘Murica’ great again? This low life? This racist, misogynistic, piece of crap? A man who can’t even adhere to a marital vow is to be trusted with a Presidential pledge??? Look at him. That isn’t a president. He looks exactly what he is – a son of inherited white privilege. A lout who got his leg up from Daddy. While American sons died in Vietnam, he was a bought and paid for, 4F. Duyah may never have seen combat but at least he joined the Forces. This scumbag sat back and enjoyed the fruits of his daddy’s labour while kids his age had their limbs blown off. Or died from torture, starvation at the hands of the enemy.
No. He is NOT going to make ‘Murica’ great again… Because…’Murica’ was never great, unless you were a rich, white dude – in which case, yeah – ‘Murica’ was and is nirvana.
I thought Americans knew this but, apparently, I had given them far too much credit. The snake oil salesmen are alive and well in the US – in fact, one was just voted in as president..
Someone said to me (an American, by the way),
“Surely you aren’t surprised..this is the country that gives the world ‘Honey Boo Boo’ and the Kardashians. This is the same country that brought the world the Watts riots, the Rodney King riots, Oklahoma and Sandy Hook. The same country that made the Memorial Wall necessary. I’m surprised that you are surprised.”
He’s right. I was using my Canadian experience as a frame of reference. I forgot the appalling education system, the nationalism at the expense of the truth. I was unaware of the virulent level of the racism and ignorance. Twinkies, Big Mac and two servings of xenophobia.
Yes, yes…Canada has its racists as well but at least, for the most part, we make an active effort to curb it and to shame its advocates. We acknowledge that we are all immigrants, every last damn one of us. None of us simply popped out of the Prairie ground or rose from the primordial ooze of a Tundra bog.
What I see, living north of the border, looking at the States, is a sad country, longing for a past that never existed. Longing for greatness but unwilling to accept the responsibility and the level of dedication, as well as hard work, that would be required. Too many Americans are willing to let immigrants lay the foundations while they reap the profit of being “Massa” – then act surprised when immigrants tell them to shove it where the amber fields of grain are expelled.
None of that is even relevant anymore; there will shortly be no United States – oxymoron or no.
I also see, from my perspective and in my opinion, that Putin has taken the United States without so much as a shot across the bow. He simply bought it. He picked the most corrupt, the most easily manipulated and least moral American he could find, showed him the money and Putin became the shadow President of the United States. Stalin must be ecstatic, wherever he rots. Putin is an evil, evil man but you can’t slam his brilliance. A simple solution – buy the president.
United States – an oxymoron; not since the civil war has the country been so divided. Or perhaps it has always been an oxymoron at worst…a pipe dream, at best. Either way…it may be wise to learn the words to the potential future national anthem of New Russia.
