Next week will be one of those “what side are you on?” moments in our history. Are you with us or against us?

I have, obviously, a slew of regrets in the Age of Trump. I have not catalogued them. But I grieve for decent people unnecessarily saddened from Trump’s presence in our lives.

I do reserve a special disdain for people who are using this man for their own purposes. Selfish, self-enriching purposes.

I am a Dialectical thinker with the Trump Era. I believe that his presence will also spur a great deal of reactive good.

If Trump’s Evil can lead to Planet-saving work, post-High-School programs for youth bored out of their skulls due to OUR lack of guidance, increased interest in Journalism, etc. I will cheer all of these for the Rest of My Days.

It doesn’t need just to be buried. It needs to be obliterated and erased from memory like Goebbels’ Antisemitic Newspaper Der Angriff. See below at 4:24.

Before we see anything like that both he and the corrupt party that enabled him have to be swept away. The GOP itself is as toxic to American Democracy as the Nazis were to Weimar. Our political system has one party that believes in the Nation’s constitution, and in democracy; and another one that plainly does not.

Fundamentalist Christians used to shout that there was only one man on earth who never made a mistake and that was Jeezuss.

You don’t hear them saying that anymore.

The problem isn’t really Trump or the GOP but the kind of people and forces they are, that preceded both and will outlive both. Evil, corruption, exploitation, dishonesty, etc., are part of the human condition, inextricable from it. If we got rid of both Trump and his party and all memory of them, someone and something like them would emerge in due time. Guaranteed.

So, yeah, remove, destroy, reduce or severely weaken them, but they’re not really going away, fundamentally, and we will be eternally on guard against them. Semper vigilans.

The Republican Party is a party of concentrated evil, perversion, crime and depravity. They are the ten-headed beast rising from the waters as envisioned by John of Patmos.

They deserve to be treated as such.

I’m relisting it.

With thanks to Pete Seeger, lyrics updated to 2019:

Which side are you on folks?
Which side are you on?
Which side are you on folks?
Which side are you on?

They say in these United States
There are far too many chumps.
You will be a Constitution man
Or a thug of Donald Trump’s.

Which side are you on folks?
Which side are you on?
Which side are you on folks?
Which side are you on?

My daddy was a sailor,
And I’m a sailor’s son,
I’ll be with you loyal citizens
Until this battle’s won.

Which side are you on?
Which side are you on?
Which side are you on, folks?
Which side are you on?

Oh people can you stand it?
Oh tell me how you can?
Don’t betray the Constitution
Please, won’t you be a man?

Which side are you on, folks?
Which side are you on?
Which side are you on, folks?
Which side are you on?

That’s the thing to watch.

Its not just the steady stream of retirements; this pressure on republicans from Trump is going to cause him even more problem going forward. In particular, House (but also some Senate) republicans are getting quite annoyed that they are not included in any WH strategy or even receiving talking points on the impeachment. Trump’s response? To put them all under a magnifying glass and demand that they blindly defend him.

Look, even if you ARE a big supporter of Trump’s,. or you are just following along to preserve you seat in a deeply Trump district…its a fool errands to attempt to publicly offer support of this President without talking points. Because everyone has seen, time and time again, he will pull the rug right out from underneath anyone who speaks on his behalf if he decides after the fact that he didn’t like it.

I agree with what you said. And it terrifies me that I do.
